Homework Help: Circular motion

  1. Aug 4, 2008 #1
    i hope the question is understood,

    the question is to prove that two masses hung from 2 strings, from the same point, at the same height from the ground, but on different length cords, can move with the same frequency, despite different lenghts

    what i think needs to be done, is prove that the frequency has nothing to do with the radius of the motion but with the velocity

    using equation for radial/centrepheutal force
    t being tension



    now im not sure what to do, i have proven nothing since B is directly affectd by the lenghth of the cord, am i correct?
