    Think about what's happening. The conker is moving with a linear speed of 2.2, and at a given point in time it acts in a single direction. However, since this is circular motion there is a force pulling it back towards the centre that counters the momentum of the conker. So how much work is the string doing to counter that movement?

    Actually completely disregard everything I said. Pretty sure its zero since the ball moves in a direction perpendicular to the cetripetal force.

    When the force is perpindicular to the direction of motion of a object the work done is 0. In circular motion, the centripetal force and the linear velocity are always 90 degrees to each other.
