nonuniform circular motion(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a pail of water is rotated in a vertical circle of radius 1m. what is the minimum speed of the pail at the top of the circle if no water is to spill out?

hmmm this problem is difficult for me to do because they gave only 1 variable. i drew a freebody diagram (i doubt if i did it right) and came up with the equation t+mg=m(v^2/r) am i doing this right?
