If you were swingin a ball on a string around in a circle in a vertical plane, at what point in the path would the string be the most likelt to break? Explain why In what direction would the ball fly when the string broke?

  • Physics - Uniform circular motion -

    the force on the ball at the bottom will be mg+mv^2/r. IF the string breaks, the ball then takes off horizontally from the bottom, then gravity will swing it down in a parabolic arc.
