A mass M of 2.71 kg is attached to the end of a string whose length is 0.640 m. The mass slides without friction on a horizontal surface. If the string can withstand a maximum tension of 77.1 N, what is the maximum tangential speed the ball can have before the string breaks?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:45 pm ad1c9bdddf
The centripetal force is the force exerted on the string when the mass is spun in a circle. We can calculate this force using the following equation:
F = m*(v^2)/r
m is the mass of the object
v is the tangential velocity of the object
r is the ...
With good explanations, the formulas and calculations are shown that solve the problem.
