Homework Help: physics

Posted by hater of physics on Friday, September 28, 2012 at 12:36am.

A mass hangs on the end of a massless rope. The pendulum is held horizontal and released from rest. When the mass reaches the bottom of its path it is moving at a speed v = 2.3 m/s and the tension in the rope is T = 22.4 N.
1. What is the mass?
2. If the maximum mass that can be used before the rope breaks is mmax = 1.72 kg, what is the maximum tension the rope can withstand? (Assuming that the mass is still released from the horizontal.)
