1.If a mass is 15 cm from the axis of rotation and makes 25 revolutions in 10 seconds, what is its speed in m/s?


2.If m = 0.1 kg and the values above still hold, what is the numerical values of the centripetal force?

  • physics -

    1. 25 rev/10 s = 2.5 rev/s
    w = 2.5 *2*pi = 15.71 radians/s.
    Multiply that by the radius for the speed.
    V = 235.6 cm/s = 2.356 m/s

    2. centripetal force = , m V^2/r
    = m r w^2
