Uniform Circular Motion
I have a bob attached to a hanger by a string.
I also have a spring attached to the bob and a central shaft.
(The spring is stretched slightly upward.)
I have found the radial acceleration and speed of the bob after doing a number of revolutions over a time period.
How would I find the radial force? I am also trying to solve for tension.
This is what I did:
T=W Tension=weight of the bob
W=mg I got stuck here.
Or is it like this: T=mg(v^2/rg)?
Any help is much appreciated!
