A ball is tied to an elastic string of length 8.0 m and swung in a horizontal circle with a velocity of 0.8 m/s. When a metallic object is tied to a rope of length 2.75 m and swung in a horizontal circle, it makes one revolution in 2.9 s. The ratio of the centripetal force in the string to the centripetal force in the rope is 1/3.0. Find the mass of the metallic object attached to the rope, if the centripetal force in the string is 0.20 N.
Centripetal force on string, F1
Centripetal force on rope, F2
Since 3F1=F2, therefore F2=0.6N
Since all variables are known except m2,
you can readily solve for m2.
someone please answer this question
pllllllllllllllllleeeeeaaassssssse, unless im gonna fail my class
kidding, but someone answer this freakin question
