How does the inertial ball experiment work? I’ve been trying to analyze and gain a greater understanding about this experiment, however I have I do not fully grasp how the system works. as far as i can understand: Also, how can I model and describe this experiment using mathematics? What equations can I use to explain “ how does the rate of force applied at the lower string affect which of the two strings break first”. More specifically if I were to graph the rate of force vs the tension in the upper and lower string, what questions can I use?
