The ball has a circular motion in the horizontal plane. It is subjected to centripetal acceleration. This acceleration is given by the centripetal force which acts towards the center of the circle of motion by the horizontal component of the tension of the string.

T = tension of the string

F = centrifugal force

For the vertical equilibrium of the ball

`Tsin46 = 1.3g`

`T = 17.73N`

For the circular motion using F = ma (Newton second law of motion)

`Tcos46 = 1.3xxv^2/R`

The radius of circular motion is given by;

`R = 21cos46 = 14.59`

`17.73cos46 = 1.3xxv^2/14.59`

`v = 11.76m/s`

*So the speed of the ball at this moment is 11.76m/s.*
