Thread: Velocity w/axis vs without View Single Post
 P: 35 Hi, quick question I've just started to learn circular motion and i tried a basic force problem. Imagine there is a ball on a string with a string length 'r', and a ball mass 'm'. You apply a force 'F' for one second. Can the arc length of the ball's motion be calculated the same as linear motion? $d=\frac{F{t^2}}{2m}$ (replacing acceleration with F/m, vi=0) Can I also go as far as the find the angular velocity by dividing by the radius? $$ω=\frac{F{t^2}}{2mr}$$ Thanks.
