[SOLVED] Circular motion 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data two spheres of equal mass are attached to a light wire of negligible mass of length 3 m ,as shown in the diagram attatched, the spheres and the rod are whirled about point O at a constant rate. 2. Relevant equations F=ma a= 4pi^2r/T^2 Find: (the tension in the wire between spheres X and Y)/(Tension in the wire between sphere Y and O) 3. The attempt at a solution Finding the "Tension in the wire between sphere Y and O": acceleration = (4pi^2(1))/(T^2) since r=1m From f=ma there are two masses flying around so ill let the mass equal to 2m. therefore F= 2m x (4pi^2)/t^2 I don't know how to approach the rest of the problem. I don't even know if I've done it correctly so far.
