Homework Help: Dynamic Mass/Force

  1. Mar 2, 2005 #1
    I need to know how to calculate dynamic mass and forces. Example is a mass at the end of a string that is swung along an arc (not perpendicular or parallel to the floor). What equations or properties do I need to calculate dynamic mass and force of the object in motion? Thank you for your help.

    Tangential speed. Angle that it is twirled at. From this, I see no reason why you coulde't solve for the rest.

    Try f=ma.

    I am not sure what you mean by dynamic mass. Mass is mass. Mass is only appreciably affected by its motion if you are talking about speeds close to the speed of light. It doesn't sound like you are.

    Thanks Andrew. That's what I was looking for.
