1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data You swing a 6.5 kg bucket of water in a vertical circle of radius 3.6 m. What speed must the bucket have if it is to complete the circle without spilling any water? mass=6.5 kg r= 3.6 2. Relevant equations ay=(v^(2)/(r)) may= A-N-Mg 3. The attempt at a solution I know that the force of gravity on the water and the normal force of the bucket on the water both point down. I assume you need to get the centripetal acceleration first. But I do not know what the applied force is and have no way of knowing. What do I do?
