An athlete whirls a 7.00 kg hammer tied to the end of a 1.1 m chain in a horizontal circle. The hammer makes one revolution in 0.9 s. What is the tension in the chain?

    The speed of the hammer must be
    V = 2 pi*1.1/0.9 = 7.68 m/s. The chain cannot not be quite horizontal, but tipped at an angle A (to support the weight) so that
    M V^2/R = T cos A and
    M g = T sin A
    tan A = g R/V^2 = 0.183
    which means that
    A = 10.3 degrees
    T = (M V^2/R)/cos10.3 = ______

    If you do not include the cos 10.5 factor, your answer will be about 2% off.
