When i was in elementry school the gym teacher had this big long rope with a ball at the end in class and the teacher would spin the ball around on the floor and whenever the ball come to us we had to jump anyway.

A) What was the direction of the force that acted on the ball?

What is the force called?


What provides this force? where does it come from

d if the rope broke what would the ball do why?

    a/ the direction of theforce holdingthe ball at the end of the rope is toward the center. The force in the rope is called tension, and the tension is supplying the centriptal force causing the ball to change directions.

    b. the ballwould go in a straight line from the point where it was when the rope broke
