Motion of a body in a Vertical and Horizontal Circle

A body of mass m is tied with a string of length l and then revolve around in the verticle circle of radius (r) is equal to the length of the string . If a body is tied by a weightless and inextensible string over the rigid support and moves in a horizontal circle then the body is called conical pendulum.
