a student attaches a mass to the end of a 0.80 m string. The system will be whirled in a horizontal circular path at 31.5 m/s. The maximum tension the string can withstand without breaking is 250 N. What is the maximum mass the student can use?

  • Physics -

    tension=mass*v^2/r
    solve formass.
