You come to a river and you see a vine you will use to swing across. Your mass is 75.0 kg, the vine is 18.0 m long, and the vine breaks when under 655 N of tension.
a) at what angle from the vertical will the vine break?
b) what should be the maximum tension supported by the vine for you to safely cross the river?
T=mgcosθ+ m (v^2/r)
The Attempt at a Solution
How i would solve this problem is by using the formulas like, θ=cos^-1(T/mg)
and get θ=27.0 degrees
is this the correct approach?
