A particle of mass m, initially at rest, moves in a circular path of radius r. The resultant force acting on the particle has a tangential component given by F = Kt. Express the time required for the particle to return to its starting point in terms of r, K, and m. I'm so confused on this one. So, there is an angular accelera

A 905 kg test car travels around a 3.25 km circular track. If the magnitude of the force that maintains the car's circular motion is 2140 N, what is the car's tangential speed? Please show all work, anwser and formulas used.

Hi. Can someone show me how to do the the following problem? "A mass M of 2.71 kg is attached to the end of a string whose length is 0.640 m, and is whirled in a vertical circle in the same radius about a fixed point. Find the magnitude of the tension when the mass is at the top if its speed at the top is 5.73 m/s." (I don

A car rounds a turn at 65 km/hr, radius= 225 m. What is the minimum friction coefficient between the tires and the road?

One end of a long brass wire is moved up and down with simple harmonic motion (SHM), with amplitude 0.08 m and a frequency of 45 cycles per second. The wave travels along the wire at a speed of 80 m/sec. Write the wave equation in terms of k and angular frequency w.

Point P is moving in a circle at constant speed. On a diameter on the x axis, point Q moves in such a way that the x coordinates of both P and Q remain the same. SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram and explanation of parameters. PART a. First with parameters then with numbers, express x as a function of time. PART b. Since th

A fighter pilot dives his plane toward the ground at 230 m/s. He pulls out of the dive on a vertical circle. What is the minimum radius of the circle, so that the normal force exerted on the pilot by his seat never exceeds three times his weight?

A particle of mass m is free to slide on a thin rod. The rod rotates in a plane about one end at constant angular velocity w. Show that the motion is given by r=Ae^(-yt)+Be^(yt), where y is a constant which you must find and A and B are arbitrary constants. Neglect gravity. Show that for a particular choice of initial co
