A rock of a mass 0.2kg is attatched to a 0.75m long string and swung in a vertical plane. What is the slowest speed that the rock can travel and still maintain a circular path.

so, i started with the following equation: Fc= mv2/r
but where do i go from there to solve for v(what can i change Fc to? )

  • Physics - ,

    at the top, mv^2/r=mg
    or v= well you solve it.

  • Physics - ,

    3 MI/HR

  • Physics - ,

    Oh, so the Centripetal force= mg
    how though?

  • Physics - ,

    Oh, 'at the top'
    great, thanks for your help :)

  • Physics - ,

    just to clairify,
    you're suffesting that there is no tension when the rock is at the top of the swing?
