Circular motion - a ball on a string
The length of the string is 50 cm.
Things to think about:
- Do you agree with all the calculated values for a particular
ball mass and tension?
- What happens when the mass or tension is adjusted?
- Is the weight of the ball always equal to the y-component of
the tension? What is the x-component of the tension equal to?
