Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Hannah on Thursday, November 15, 2007 at 11:07pm.

Although a mass on the end of a string can be whirled around in a horizontal circle, (plane of the mass is horizontal), is it possible for the string itself to be horizontal? Explain and justify your answer.

I know that it is impossible, because it just is. The mass always has weight. But I don't really understand how exactly to answer it. Help!
