Physics Honors Chapter 7 Worksheet A child is playing with a toy comprised of a massless 85-cm string attached to a small 0.04-kg ball. The child swings the ball in a vertical circle so that the period of the ball's rotation is 1.3 seconds. 1. What is the speed of the ball? 2. What is the tension in the string when the ball is at the bottom of the circle and moving sideways? 3. What is the tension in the string when the ball is at the top of the circle and moving sideways? A child is playing with a toy comprised of a massless 85-cm string attached to a small 0.04-kg ball. The child swings the ball in a horizontal circle so that the period of the ball's rotation is 1.3 seconds. The string makes an angle to the horizontal as the ball orbits the child’s hand. 4. What is the magnitude of the vertical component of the tension force? 5. Show that the angle the string makes with the horizontal is given by 1 2 2 sin 4 gT L where g is the gravitational acceleration, T is the period of the ball’s motion, and L is the length of the string. 6. What angle does the string make with the horizontal? 7. What is the radius of the ball’s motion? 8. What is the speed of the ball? 9. What is the horizontal component of the tension force? 10. What is the tension in the string? An astronaut child is playing with a toy comprised of a massless spring attached to a small 0.04-kg ball in zero gravity. The child swings the ball in a horizontal circle so that the period of the ball's rotation is 1.3 seconds and the

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
