Consider the motion of the rock in the figure below. What is the minimum speed the rock can have without the string becoming "slack"? (The rock is traveling in vertical circle. Assume that m = 1.6 kg and r = 0.48 m.)

5. the equation is A(c)= v^(2)/r

solve for v, which is v=[A(c) x r]^(1/2)

solve for v: v= [9.81 x .48]^(1/2)
v= [4.7088]^(1/2)
v= 2.169
