2009 HSC, Question 4(b)

Another question on the conical pendulum, this time with a minor variation that has it constrained to the surface of a cone.  The message is still the same - set your question up clearly, finding components in the horizontal  and vertical (or in some cases, radially and tangentially), the use Newton's Second Law. 
If you can successfully find the components, most of the subsequent parts following relatively easily.
