I'm supposed to give the three forces acting on the basket on a carousel.
Principly not for this task.
The Attempt at a Solution
When I look at the forces on the baskets on the carousel in constant rotation, I can point out the three forces:
1. Gravity --> An arrow pointing straight down
2. Tension in rope or joint ---> An arrow pointing horizontal/up towards the abutment
3. Centripetal force --> An arrow pointing straight horizontal towards the centre of the carousel
Is this correct or have I missed something? Many thanks for answers.
