Kinetics : Circular Motion

Conical pendulum Problems concerning the conical pendulum assume no air resistance and that the string has no mass and cannot be stretched.

Solution of problems involves resolving forces on the mass vertically and horizontally. In this way the speed of the mass, the tension in the string and the period of revolution can be ascertained.

For many problems concerning vertical circular motion, energy considerations(KE & PE) of particles at different positions are used to form a solution.

Example #1 A 50g mass suspended at the end of a light inextensible string performs vertical motion of radius 2m. if the mass has a speed of 5 ms-1 when the string makes an angle of 30o with the vertical, what is the tension? (assume g =10 ms-2 , answer to 1 d.p.)

Example #2 A 5kg mass performs circular motion at the end of a light inextensible string of length 3m. If the speed of the mass is 2 ms-1 when the string is horizontal, what is its speed at the bottom of the circle? (assume g =10 ms-2)
