**Hi. I am having some difficulty with circular motion.**

**An object is spun vertically on a rope a) when would the string be most likely to break?**

The object would most likely to break when it has the most tension, so at the bottom of the circle it is Ft-Fg=Mv^2/r which is (Ft=Mv^2/r + Fg) while the top is

**Ft=Mv^2/r - Fg. But I don't understand the concept of this, because if both Tenstion and Gravity are going in the same direction how can it be possible? Thanks.**
