A uniform metal ball (mass m) is tied to the end of a string (massless, length L). The other end of the
string is fixed. The ball is moving in a vertical circle centered at the fixed end of the string. Suppose
the velocity of the ball at the lowest point is v, what is the string tension when it makes an angle x to
the downward vertical position?
