1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data "A uniform rope with length L and mass m is held at one end and whirled in a horizontal circle with angular velocity w. You can ignore the force of gravity on the rope. Find the time required for a transerve wave to travel from one end of the rope to the other." 2. Relevant equations w = 2*pi*f wave speed = frequency*wavelength = sqrt(tension/mass per unit length) 3. The attempt at a solution I'm a bit confused here. If the force of gravity on the rope is being ignored, then what is the tension in the rope?
