an object of mass 0.1kg is rotated in a horizontal circle by a string 1m long. the maximum tension in the string before it breaks is 50N.what is its maximum frequency reached?

  • physics - ,

    0.28s??

  • physics - ,

    no the answer is 1.6 revolutions per second

  • physics - ,

    F = m v^2/r
    50 = .1 v^2/1
    v^2 = 500
    v =10 sqrt 5

    circumference = 2 pi r = 2 pi

    time around circle = 2 pi /10 sqrt 5

    frequency = 1/time = (5/pi) sqrt 5

    f = 3.55

    are you sure we can use length of the string 1m as the radius? and why?

  • physics - ,

    Your problem statement says the string is one meter long.

    hmmm...ok thanks :)

    Sry, I misunderstand the question. F=3.55
