Homework Help: mechanics

Posted by ruben on Friday, November 2, 2012 at 5:18am.

The figure below shows a ball with mass m = 0.299 kg attached to the end of a thin rod with length L = 0.388 m and negligible mass. The other end of the rod is pivoted so that the ball can move in a vertical circle. The rod is held horizontally as shown and then given enough of a downward push to cause the ball to swing down and around and just reach the vertically up position, with zero speed there.
How much work is done on the ball by the gravitational force from the initial point to the following points?
(a) the lowest point
J

(b) the highest point
J

(c) the point on the right level with the initial point
J
If the gravitational potential energy of the ball-Earth system is taken to be zero at the initial point, what is it when the ball reaches the following points?
(d) the lowest point
J

(e) the highest point
J

(f) the point on the right level with the initial point
J
