Tarzan plans to cross a gorge by swinging in an arc from a hanging vine. If his arms are capable of exerting a force of 1820 N on the rope, what is the maximum speed (in meters/second) he can tolerate at the lowest point of his swing? His mass is 83.0 kg, and the vine is 11.0 m long

    The rope must support his weight and centripetal force at the bottom of the swing. At the breaking point,

    M*(g + V^2/L) = 1820 N

    L = 11.0 m
    M = 83 kg
    g = 9.8 m/s^2
    Solve for V
