Tarzan wights 820N, swings from a cliff at the end of a 20m vine that hangs from a high tree limb and initially makes an angle of 22 degrees with the vertical. Immediately after Tarzan steps off the cliff the tension in the cine is 760N. Choose a coordinate system for which the x axis points horizontally away form the edge of the cliff and the y axis points up. a)What is the magnitude and direction of the net force acting on Tarzan? b) What is the magnitde and direction of his acceleration?

What are the equations?

opps sorry but only the first part of my question was answered so I posted again so the other parts of the question would be answered as well.

You could have posted another note directly under the last post, as I am doing here. USUALLY we go back and look at our answers to see if there is a follow up questions or comment.
