1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An object of mass m is attached to a light rod of length r which is driven by a motor at a steady rate. The object performs uniform vertical circular motion. Centripetal force is provided by tension and weight. Draw the net force acting on the mass when the mass is at a height of r from the bottom of the circular path. 2. Relevant equations Net force = T + mg 3. The attempt at a solution so I draw the net force which is pointing inwards, but at the same time, a bit downwards rather than solely towards the centre of the circular path but isn't the net force of a uniform circular motion pointing towards the centre of the circular path all the time? Can anyone help me to draw the free body diagram of the mass and explain it to me?
