(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Write a proportionality statement for F, m, f and r using your three proportionality statements.

2. Relevant equations

F = centripetal force

f = frequency

m = mass

r = radius

F \propto f^2

r \propto F^2

m \propto F^2

3. The attempt at a solution

m \propto F^2 & r \propto F^2

therefore: m \propto r

m/r \propto F^2/F^2 \propto some constant

F \propto m/r . f^2

F \propto mf^2/r

which matches F \propto mv^2/r as f^2 \propto v^2

Edit:I removed all the tex tags because they messed everything up, hope this is still understandable

Thank you in advance
