Problem Set 3: Problem 1. Problem: A hammer thrower is swinging a hammer whose head A has mass M . The head rotates at constant speed, v , in a horizontal circle of radius ρ . The angle of wire BC relative to the horizontal plane is θ as shown. (a) Solve for the tension in wire BC, T , and the speed v . Express your answers in terms of M , ρ , θ and gravitational acceleration, g . (b) Compute T and v for M = 7 kg, ρ = 1 m and θ = 33 o . Solution: The following figure shows the forces acting on the hammer head. Specifically, in the vertical direction, we have the weight of the head,

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
