1.A mass is moving in uniform circular motion under the effects of a centripetal force. If the force is doubled and the radius is cut in half, by what factor will the speed change?

  • Physics -

    V^2/R is doubled, since the force doubles..
    If R is also halved, V stays the same.
    That allows V^2/R to double.
