Demonstration of the Tension Force on a Rope in Circular Motion
Koyuncu, Kursat; Yurumezoglu, Kemal; Isik, Hakan
Physics Education, v48 n2 p233-237 Mar 2013
This experimental activity aims to visualize the variations in the tension force on a rope with a mass attached to it in horizontal and vertical circular motion. The results facilitate comprehension of the effect of the direction of the radial force in changing the magnitude of the tension force. (Contains 10 figures.)
