Two astronauts, each having a mass of 89.0 kg, are connected by a 10.0 m rope of negligible mass. They are isolated in space, moving in circles around the point halfway between them at a speed of 5.60 m/s. Treating the astronauts as particles, calculate each of the following.

  • You orgot the rest of the question - ,

    anyway,
    Ac = v^2/r
    r = 5 m
    so
    Ac = 5.6^2/5 = 6.27 m/s^2
    F = m Ac = 89 * 6.27 = 558 Newtons tension in line
