- A model train, with a mass of #6 kg#, is moving on a circular track with a radius of #7 m#. If the train's rate of revolution changes from #1 Hz# to #2 Hz#, by how much will the centripetal force applied by the tracks change by?
- An object with a mass of #7 kg# is revolving around a point at a distance of #8 m#. If the object is making revolutions at a frequency of #7 Hz#, what is the centripetal force acting on the object?
- An object with a mass of #2# # kg# is revolving around a point at a distance of #7# #m#. If the object is making revolutions at a frequency of #13# # Hz#, what is the centripetal force acting on the object?
- A model train, with a mass of #8 kg#, is moving on a circular track with a radius of #8 m#. If the train's kinetic energy changes from #32 j# to #0 j#, by how much will the centripetal force applied by the tracks change by?
- A model train with a mass of #1 kg# is moving along a track at #24 (cm)/s#. If the curvature of the track changes from a radius of #72 cm# to #180 cm#, by how much must the centripetal force applied by the tracks change?
