#### Mass on a string

A ball on a 1.4-meter long string is being whirled in mid-air in a horizontal circle at a
constant speed v. The tension in the string is 100 N. The mass of the ball is 3.70 kg.

As usual, begin with a free-body diagram.

Follow this up with an appropriate choice of coordinate system.

Let's go with a coordinate system with +x towards the center of the circle and +y vertically up.

The tension needs to be broken into components:

T_{x} = T cos(q)

T_{y} = T sin(q)
