A potato of mass m is attached to a string of negligible mass and length L. The potato is released from rest from a horizontal position. When the potato is at point p, the string attached to the potato makes an angle θ with the horizontal.

In terms of m,L,θ ,and any necessary constants, determine the following at point p

a. the speed of the potato
b. the tension in the string
c. the tangential acceleration of the potato
