Question

A stone with a mass of 0.70 kg is attached to one end of a string 0.80 m long. The string will break if its tension exceeds 65.0 N. The stone is whirled in a horizontal circle on a frictionless tabletop; the other end of the string remains fixed. Find the maximum speed the stone can attain without breaking the string.

The maximum speed the stone can attain without breaking the string is 8.62 m/s .

Explanation:

Given :

Mass of stone , m = 0.7 kg .

Length of string , l = 0.8 m .

It is also given that the stone will break if its tension exceeds 65.0 N.

Now , we know tension in the rope due to rotation is equal to the centripetal acceleration .

Therefore , the maximum speed the stone can attain without breaking the string is less than or equal to 65 N .

So ,

Putting all value in above equation we get :

Therefore , maximum speed the stone can attain without breaking the string is 8.62 m/s .
