A 1 kg collar C slides without friction along the rod OA and is attached to rod BC by a frictionless pn. The rods rotate in the horizontal plane. At the instant shown BC is rotating counterclockwise and the speed of C is 1m/s, increasing at a rate of 1.2m/s^2. Determine at this instant, a) the tension n rod BC, b) the force exerted by the collar on the rod OA.
