An athlete swings a 4.30 kg ball horizontally on the end of a rope. The ball moves in a circle of radius 0.790 m at an angular speed of 0.590 rev/s.
(a) What is the tangential speed of the ball?
(b) What is its centripetal acceleration?
(c) If the maximum tension the rope can withstand before breaking is 81 N, what is the maximum tangential speed the ball can have?
A placekicker must kick a football from a point 36.0 m (about 40 yards) from the goal. Half the crowd hopes the ball will clear the crossbar, which is 3.05 m high. When kicked, the ball leaves the ground with a speed of 24.0 m/s at an angle of 45.0° to the horizontal.
