An athlete twirls a 1 kg hammer tied to the end of a 1.3 m rope in a horizontal circle the hammer moves at the rate of 1.0 rev/sec.
(a)what is the centripetal acceleration of the hammer?

(b) what is the tension in the rope?

  • Physics -

    (a) R * w^2
    (b) M*R*w^2

    where w = 2 pi radians/s
    M = 1.0 kg
    R = 1.3 m
    The answer will be in Newtons.

    You should be familiar with these formulas.
