4.

A parent holds a child by the arms and spins around in a circle at a constant speed. If the parent spins fast enough, will the child's feet leave the ground? Explain your answer.

ANS:

As the angular velocity increases, the parent’s arms must exert a larger and larger force, F, because the horizontal component of this force, F h , is the

centripetal force and this force F c = mr

does its vertical component. When F is large enough so that its vertical component is equal to the weight of the child, the child’s feet leave the ground. 2 . However, if F increases so

5. A tether ball is tied to a string and whirled in a horizontal circular path at a constant speed. What causes the ball and string to move away from the post?

ANS:

The tension in the string is the force that maintains the circular motion and acts along the string away from the ball. Inertia causes the ball and string to move outward.
