## Homework Statement

Two balls with masses m1=0.3 kg and m2=0.7 kg are connected by massless strings with lengths L1=0.2 m and L2=0.26 m, as shown. The arrangement of strings and masses rotates at constant angular frequency ω=57.6 radians/s around a fixed pivot point. Find the two tensions, T1 and T2. There is no gravity in this problem.

## Homework Equations

So, here are equations I believe are relevant.

F=ma

A=V^2/r

ω=rad*r

**So, I'm struggling trying to find the different tensions between the two strings. I think that the radius will change depending on which ball you are looking at and therefore the tensions will be different.**

Any tips?
