Question

A carnival swing is attached to a rotating cylinder by two cables, one of which is horizontal and the other at an angle. The rider and seat together have a mass of m = 109.7 kg (the cables can be treated as weightless). The seat swings in a horizontal circle at a rate of 28 revolutions per minute.

a. What is the magnitude of the tangential velocity of the rider in m/s? (recall the circumference of a circle C =(2(pi)(r))

b. Treat the rider and seat as one object. Draw a free body diagram and label all forces

c. The tension in the angled cable is 1405 N. Find the tension in the horizontal cable
