1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data You grew up with a salad spinner that operates with a string attached to a wheel with a radius of 6 cm. Unfortunately, the string broke last week and you need to get it working again before Thanksgiving. You need to ﬁgure out how strong the replacement string must be in order to survive the holiday without breaking. Under normal operations, it takes 0.2 sec for you to spin the salad from rest to 5 revolutions per second. The basket of the spinner has a radius of 12 cm. You normally put 0.1 kg of wet spinach in the spinner and you decide to make a conservative estimate, so you make calculations assuming that the spinach is at the location that requires the most torque to get the spinner moving. What torque does the string exert on the axle, and how strong a string do you need? 2. Relevant equations torque = I(angular acceleration) 3. The attempt at a solution I found the torque to be 0.23 Nm, but have absolutely no idea how to find the strength of the rope from there. Should I find tension?
