Question
A small object with mass 0.200 kg swings back and forth on the lower end of a light rope that is 3.00 m long. The upper
end of the rope is attached to the ceiling. As the object swings through its lowest position, where the rope is vertical, the
speed of the object is 4.50 m/s. At this point in the motion, what is the tension in the rope? (Use g = 9.80 m/s2.)
