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

I have x, y, theta, omega and alpha at any given t so that's not a problem if they're needed.

I need magnitude and direction for the forces in the diagram to show them in my model.

2. Relevant equations

Transverse component: [tex]mr\dot{\omega} = mr\ddot{\theta}[/tex]

Radial component: [tex]mv^2 = mr\omega^2[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

but that doesn't work properly, also I'm missing the mg component down....Code (Text):radial.axis = v.vector(-x,5-y)/(v.mag(v.vector(cos(2.1*5*s[1]**2),sin(2.1*5*s[1]**2))))

transverse.axis = -v.vector(x,y)/(v.mag(v.vector(cos(2.1*5*alpha),sin(2.1*5*alpha))))

help? :P

Thanks in advance!
