A concept question:

Suppose that the centripetal force acting on an object in circular motion were increased to a new value, and the object remained in circular path with the same radius. How would its motion be affected?

  • College Physics -

    It has to have a higher velocity if it stays in the same path.

    force=mv^2/r

  • College Physics -

    when the radius remains same, the speed should be increased.
