## Homework Statement

Hi Can anyone help with this question? It will be highly appreciated. An object of mass 6kg is whirled round in a vertical circle of radius 2m with the speed of 8m/s. If the string breaks when the tension in it exceeds 360N, calculate the maximum speed of rotation and state where the object will be when the string breaks.

I am utilising F = mv^2/r.

Maximum speed of rotation will supposedly act at Maximum tension.

So,

T-mg = mv^2/r

Therefore, maximum speed is 10m/s at the bottom of the circle.
