A ball(mass=3kg) is attached to 2 strings and it is rotated by one string and to the other is joined to another ball which is also attached to another ball by a string.Which of the strings experience the maximum when length of each string is 1metre?

  1. The string closest to the axis of rotation would have the maximum tension. Draw the free body diagram and it will be clear that the tension in the closest string balances not only the centrifugal force on the attached ball but also the tension in the string next in the chain.
