While fishing, you get bored and start to swing a sinker weight around in a circle below you on a 0.25-m piece of fishing line. The weight makes a complete circle every 0.50 sec. What is the angle that the fishing line makes with the vertical?

Centripetal acceleration, Ac (horizontal)

= (1/2)v²/r m/s²

Acceleration due to gravity, g (vertical)

= 9.8 m/s²

Angle with vertical, θ

= tan^{-1}(Ac/g)
