# If the horizontal circular path the riders follow has a 7.00 m radius, at how many revolutions per minute will the riders be subjected to a centripetal acceleration whose magnitude is 2.25 times that due to gravity?

##
A fairgrounds ride spins its occupants inside a flying saucer-shaped container. rev/min

A fairgrounds ride spins its occupants inside a flying saucer-shaped container. rev/min

where T is the time interval (one revolution's worth)

Thus, we can figure out T.

In one minute, it will have completed one revolution every 3.5 seconds.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- A model train with a mass of #4 kg# is moving along a track at #8 (cm)/s#. If the curvature of the track changes from a radius of #54 cm# to #27 cm#, by how much must the centripetal force applied by the tracks change?
- An object with a mass of #3 kg# is revolving around a point at a distance of #4 m#. If the object is making revolutions at a frequency of #2 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 #4 m#. If the object is making revolutions at a frequency of #15 Hz#, what is the centripetal force acting on the object?
- A model train with a mass of #5 kg# is moving along a track at #4 (cm)/s#. If the curvature of the track changes from a radius of #4 cm# to #24 cm#, by how much must the centripetal force applied by the tracks change?
- A model train with a mass of #5 kg# is moving along a track at #14 (cm)/s#. If the curvature of the track changes from a radius of #4 cm# to #24 cm#, by how much must the centripetal force applied by the tracks change?
