- Homework Statement
- The block B , having a mass of 0.2 kg, is attached to the vertex A of the right circular cone using a light cord. The cone is rotating at a constant angular rate about the z axis such that the block attains a speed of 0.5 m/s.
At this speed, determine the tension in the cord. Neglect the size of the block and the effect of friction.
At this speed, determine the reaction which the cone exerts on the block. Neglect the size of the block and the effect of friction.
- Relevant Equations
Haii, I don't understand why I need to choose my n-t components in the direction of a circular motion and can't just use them with the n-axis along the rope and the binormal perpendicular to the surface.
