Question

A tennis ball connected to a string is spun around in a vertical, circular path at a uniform speed. The ball has a mass m = 0.15 kg and moves at v = 4.89 m/s. The circular path has a radius of R = 0.94 m

What is the minimum velocity so the string will not go slack as the ball moves around the circle?

Answer #1

A tennis ball connected to a string is spun around in a
vertical, circular path at a uniform speed. The ball has a mass m =
0.154 kg and moves at v = 5.16 m/s. The circular path has a radius
of R = 1.01 m
1) What is the magnitude of the tension in the string when the
ball is at the bottom of the circle?
2) What is the magnitude of the tension in the string when the...

A ball of mass m is attached to a string. It is spun around at a
distance r at 2 m/s, where the tension in the string is measured to
be 10 N. If the ball is then spun around at 8 m/s, what is the new
tension in the spring?

A tennis ball connected to a string fixed to a frictionless
table travels in a horizontal circle at constant radius with
decreasing angular velocity. If the string breaks, which describes
the tennis ball's linear velocity right afterwards?
A. It is changing direction, but not magnitude.
B. It is constant.
C. It is changing magnitude, but not direction.
D. It is changing both magnitude and direction.

A ball of mass m is
tied to a string and is rotating in a vertical plane. The string is
elastic (it stretches), which causes the path to be elongated
vertically rather than perfectly circular. At the top of the path,
the speed has the minimum value that still allows the ball to
complete its circular path.
Find: the length of the string when it makes an angle
θ
with respect to the horizontal.
The following quantities are known:

In her hand, a softball pitcher swings a ball of mass 0.254 kg
around a vertical circular path of radius 59.4 cm before releasing
it from her hand. The pitcher maintains a component of force on the
ball of constant magnitude 29.8 N in the direction of motion around
the complete path. The speed of the ball at the top of the circle
is 15.7 m/s. If she releases the ball at the bottom of the circle,
what is its...

A rock is tied to a string and spun in a circle of radius 1.4 m
as shown in the figure below. The speed of the rock is 13 m/s.
(c) What is the total force on the rock directed toward the
center of its circular path? Express your answer in terms of the
(unknown) tension T in the string. (Use the following as necessary:
?.) F = (d) Apply Newton's second law along both the vertical and
the horizontal...

A ball on the end of a string is whirled around in a horizontal
circle of radius 0.340 m. The plane of the circle is 1.50 m above
the ground. The string breaks and the ball lands 1.50 m
(horizontally) away from the point on the ground directly beneath
the ball's location when the string breaks. Find the radial
acceleration of the ball during its circular motion.

You are whirling a charged tennis ball attached to a string in a
horizontal circle above your head. The string is 1 meter in length.
The tennis ball is 0.05 kg, and it has a charge of 3.2 x 10-9C on
it, and you are whirling it at a speed of v = 1.5 m/s. Your
"friend" brings a sphere nearby, which he is hoping will break the
tension on the string and send the tennis ball flying. He has...

In the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom, an electron moves in a
circular path around a proton. The speed of the electron is
approximately 2.17 106 m/s.
(a) Find the force acting on the electron as it revolves in a
circular orbit of radius 0.532 ✕ 10−10 m. magnitude
(b) Find the centripetal acceleration of the electron.

A tennis ball is a hollow sphere with a thin wall. It is set
rolling without slipping at 4.10 m/s on a horizontal section of a
track as shown in the figure below. It rolls around the inside of a
vertical circular loop of radius r = 48.1 cm. As the ball nears the
bottom of the loop, the shape of the track deviates from a perfect
circle so that the ball leaves the track at a point h =...
