A tetherball leans against the smooth, frictionless post to which it is attached. The string is attached to the ball such that a line along the string passes through the center of the ball. The string is 1.30 long and the ball has a radius of 0.170 with mass 0.440 .

What is the tension in the rope?

What is the force the pole exerts on the ball?

**Thomas**, Thursday, February 25, 2010 at 7:26pmI am currently stuck on the second part of this problem, but the tension is rather simple.

Just use F=mg, where m is the mass of the ball and g is gravity. Its that simple.
