(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

We did an experiment mimicking how there's force between the moon and earth. I just want to know how the graph should be between 1.time and Force of centripetal and 2. velocity and Force of centripedal.

is it proportional, inversely proportional, or increases as the other variable increases.

2. Relevant equations

F=Mass x gravity

velocity= 2pie times radius which is 2.2m

3. The attempt at a solution

this is my data.

kg Fcp=force of centripedal T(s) velocity

.050 .49N .94s 1.34m/s

.070 .69N .70s 1.8 m/s

.090 .88N .68s 1.9 m/s

.110 1.08N .48s 2.63m/s

.130 1.27N .51s 2.46m/s

.150 1.47N .47 2.67m/s

.170 1.67N .39 3.22m/s

For the time vs. Fcp I believe it looks like a proportional graph.

However for velocity vs. Fcp, I'm not sure if its proportional or increases as the other variable increase.

Thank you for all helps and input
