A stunt man whose mass is 70 kg swings from the end of a 4.4 m long rope along the arc of a vertical circle. Assuming that he starts from rest when the rope is horizontal, find the tensions in the rope that are required to make him follow his circular path at each of the following points.

(a) at the beginning of his motion

(b) at a height of 1.5 m above the bottom of the circular arc

(c) at the bottom of the arc

Thank you

at each position, figure his velocity due to the change of energy (height fell). Then centripetal force, mv^2/r, which is tangent to the circle arc, is one force, which is added to mg, which is downward. Add the two forces as vectors.
