Radius (meters) versus force(newtons). Thus, verifying theoretical expression for the force in terms of the frequency of rotation, the radius of the path and the mass being held in the circular path. Possible discrepencies in our data would be the vertical rod not being completely vertical, the radius not being exactly balanced in part three, stopping the clock too early for the mean force, not reading the directions carefully, not reading the results right, and rushing too much. Questions: 1. Using words and a mathematical expression, describe the Relationship between the force and mass in uniform circular motion. Answer: The relationship between force and mass is a direct relationship, meaning that as mass increases the force needed increases directly. 2. Using the words and a mathematical expression, describe the relationship between force and velocity in uniform circular motion. Answer: The relationship between force and velocity is squared. If the velocity is doubled, the force is quadrupled. 3. Using words and a mathematical expression, describe the relationship between force and radius in uniform circular motion. Answer: The relationship between force and radius is an inversely direct relationship, so as radius increases or decreases, the force does the opposite. 4. Combine the three relationships above to create one relationship between force and, mass, velocity, and radius. Answer: Force has a direct relationship with mass, a squared relation with velocity and an inverse relationship with radius. 5. How would you convert this expression into an equation? Answer: 6. What is the constant of proportionality for this equation? Explain. Answer: The constant for this equation is the mass, mass cannot be changed easily while the object is in motion, and is the only constant. Radius of the motion can be changed easily and velocity is also easy to change. 7. How could such an equation be used? Answer: This equation could be used to find the acceleration of an object as it moves in circular motion.

8: The figure below is an overhead view of the rotating mass. For each four points, draw the direction and relative magnitude of the force. Answer: The direction of the force is inward towards the center of the circle at all four points.

    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.
