- Homework Statement
- Use inertia and Newton’s first law to explain how the spin cycle in a washing machine removes
water from clothes.
- Relevant Equations
- Newton's First Law
I truly am not sure. I assume it is that because everything has inertia, an a tendency to remain in a constant state of motion, when the clothes are quickly spun around they cannot remain in a constant state of motion (of either rest or constant velocity), but the water is "pushed"/spun out of the clothing "with the goal of being in an equilibrium", although I do not think this is correct.
