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.
