    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    In the figure the man hanging upside down is holding a partner who weighs 570 N. Assume that the partner moves on a circle that has a radius of 6.50 m. At a swinging speed of 4.25 m/s, what force must the man apply to his partner in the straight-down position?
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    (570*(4.25)^2) / 6.5

    1580 n?

    If my logic is wrong, please tell me.
