One end of a cord is fixed and a small 0.550-kg object is attached to the other end, where it swings in a section of a vertical circle of radius 2.50 m, as shown in the figure below. When
θ = 18.0°,
the speed of the object is 6.50 m/s.
An object is swinging to the right and upward from the end of a cord attached to a horizontal surface. The cord makes an angle θ with the vertical. An arrow labeled vector v points in the direction of motion.
(a) At this instant, find the magnitude of the tension in the
(b) At this instant, find the tangential and radial components of acceleration.
|____m/s2 downward tangent to the circle|
(c) At this instant, find the total acceleration.
inward and below the cord at _____ °
(d) Is your answer changed if the object is swinging down toward its lowest point instead of swinging up?
Yes OR No
(e) Explain your answer to part (d).
