  1. Net force on monkey:

    Fnet = weight - tension = mg - T

    Newton's 2nd Law:

    mg - T = ma

    Solve for "T":

    T = m(g-a)

    To avoid breaking, T can be no more than 2/3 of monkey's weight:

    T ≤ (2/3)mg

    Substitute "m(g-a)" for T:

    m(g-a) ≤ (2/3)mg

    Solve this inequality for "a":

    a ≥ (1/3)g
