Bar holding a weight (conceptual)

  1. Oct 6, 2011 #1
    A long, thin metal (massless) bar is rotating in a circle at constant velocity, perpendicular to the axis of rotation. A weight is placed on the end of the bar such that there is no vertical movement of the weight or bar. What force counteracts the force of gravity on the weight?.

    (My post in your homework problem question thread. It really was just me posting both places because this question is about the same problem that you were having trouble with that you posted about in the homework forum.)
