I got this:counterbalanced by the horizontal component of rope tension:

m*g*sin(70)

r=2.2*sin(70)

So here's the result

using g=9.81

v=sin(70)*sqrt(2.2*9.81)

v=4.36 m/s but its wrong could someone please help me out. Thank you and sorry for reposting.

**bobpursley**, Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at 12:02pmIf I visulize the situation,

mg*sintheta=mv^2/r.

Now if the pole movement is small, then r= length*sinTheta

mg(sinTheta)=mv^2/length*sinTheta

v= sinTheta*sqrt (g*lengthrope)

that is what you have in theequation, but not what you calculated. Recalculate

**bobpursley**, Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at 2:35pmsqrt(g*lengthrope)=4.64

sin70deg=hmmmm.

Ok, without a picture, I am not certain of where the angle is.

If the angle is measured from the downward vertical to the slanted rope, then sin70 is correct.
