A stone tied to the end of a string, 80 cm long, is whirled in a horizontal circle with a constant speed. If the stone makes 14 revolutions in 25 seconds what is the magnitude and direction of the acceleration of the stone?

  • physics -

    80cm=0.8m
    T=25/14=1.786...seconds
    v=(2pi*r)/T=2pi(0.8)/1.786...=2.815...m/s
    a=v^2/r=2.815...^2/0.8=9.904m/s^2, towards the centre along the radius vector of the circle

  • physics -

    9.9
