turning a mass of 1kg around a string of lenght L. speed (v) is 10 m/s and string is at an angle of 20 degrees.

Also, circular mouvement is 1 m from the ground (h=1m)

a) what the tension in the string

b)what the lenght of the string

c) if the string suddenly breaks what horizontal distance will the mass travel before hitting the ground.

What i did:

I found a lenght of (3.49m) before the tension. that's mos likely wrong. I'm not sure how to use the angle in my solution and how to translate equations from what I see in the top view to the side view. Is T in the top view equal to the T from the angled string? Honestly just very confused.
