## Homework Statement

Ball with mass m is connected by a strong string of length L to a pivot point and held in place in a vertical position. A wind exerting constant force of magnitude F is blowing from left to right. If the ball is released from rest, show that the maximum height H it reaches (the vertical displacement), as measured from its initial height, is:

**H = 2L / 1 + (mg/F)**

^{2}## Homework Equations

Work and energy related equations.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I did dimensional analysis of the final equation but I ended up with something other than [L], which is the unit for height.

As for starting...

Does finding the work of the wind have anything to do with it?

I'm not sure where to start from.
