# Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Stuck on Wednesday, July 14, 2010 at 5:28pm.

"An athlete whirls a 3.7kg shot-put in a horizontal circle with a radius of 0.90m. If the period of rotation is 0.30s, how far would the shot-put travel horizontally if it is released 1.2m above the level ground?"

There were two other parts to the question that I had already calculated. The speed of the shot-put when released is 18.85m/s, and the centripetal force acting on the shot-put is 1461N.

Thanks, but I got it.
