A 0.45-kg ball, attached to the end of a horizontal cord, is rotated in a circle of radius 1.3-m on a frictionless horizontal surface.
If the maximum speed of the ball is 14.7 m/s, how long does it take the ball to make on rotation if it is moving at its maximum speed?

  • Physics -

    circumference = 2 pi R


    time in seconds
    = distance / speed = 2 pi (1.3) /14.7

    Ohhhhhhh...
    so we use the CIRCUMFERENCE, not the RADIUS. Got it. Thank you so much!

    Yes, unless it makes a wild plunge for the center of the circle :)
