# A 5.00kg ball is swung at the end of a 1.25 m chain with a w of 2.0s^-1. Find the balls

a)V (m/s)
b) KE 1/2mv^2
c) I, inertia
d) Ke with I
e) Fc--> centripetal force

Work
a) v=rw
v= (1.25m)(2.0s^-1)
v= 2.5 m/s
b) 1/2 mv^2
(.5)(5)(2.5)^2
c) I=mr^2
= (5)(1.25)^2
= 15.6
d0 =.5 Iw^2
=(.5)(7.81)(2.0)^2
= 15.6 J
e) Fc= (mv^2)/(r)
Fc= (5.0)(2.5)^2/ (1.25)
= 25N

correct.

To find the velocity of the swinging ball, you used the formula v = rw. In this formula, r is the length of the chain (1.25 m) and w represents the angular velocity (2.0 s^-1). By plugging in these values, you correctly calculated the velocity of the ball to be 2.5 m/s.

To find the kinetic energy of the ball, you used the formula KE = (1/2)mv^2. Here, m is the mass of the ball (5.00 kg) and v is the velocity of the ball (2.5 m/s). By substituting these values, you correctly determined the kinetic energy to be 31.25 J.

To find the inertia of the ball, you used the formula I = mr^2. In this formula, m represents the mass of the ball (5.00 kg) and r represents the length of the chain (1.25 m). By plugging in these values, you correctly found the inertia of the ball to be 15.6 kg*m^2.

To find the kinetic energy using inertia, you used the formula KE = 0.5Iw^2. In this formula, I represents the inertia of the ball (15.6 kg*m^2) and w represents the angular velocity (2.0 s^-1). By substituting these values, you correctly calculated the kinetic energy to be 15.6 J.

To find the centripetal force acting on the ball, you used the formula Fc = (mv^2)/r. Here, m represents the mass of the ball (5.00 kg), v represents the velocity of the ball (2.5 m/s), and r represents the length of the chain (1.25 m). By substituting these values, you correctly determined the centripetal force to be 25 N.

Well done!
