A stone is whirled in a vertical circle as shown in the figure below using a string of length 40 cm. A, B, C and D are various positions of the stone in its motion. The stone makes 2 revolutions per second and has a mass of 100g.
- The angular velocity
- The tension on the string at position A
- At C where the stone has acquired a constant angular speed, the string cuts. The stone takes 0.5 seconds to land on the ground. How high is point C above the ground.
- How far does it travel horizontally before hitting the ground.
