1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An object is being swung vertically on a stick. What is the net force at the bottom? The mass of the object = 2kg. g= 9.81ms-1. v = 6ms-1 at the bottom. 2. Relevant equations F= mg Fcentripetal = (m*v^2)/r 3. The attempt at a solution I just need to know if i must add the force of gravity to the centripetal force. Thank you.
