- Homework Statement
- I'm investigating the effect of radius on centripetal force using a conical pendulum. If the length of the string and the mass is kept constant and I increase the orbital radius (assuming force is also kept constant) would the period of the conical pendulum increase or decrease???
- Relevant Equations
- F=mv^2/r or
Well i think centripetal force is inversely proportional to the radius, so I'm guessing it would decrease but not sure to be honest.
