*10-60. A coin rests on a rotating platform distance of 12 cm from the center of rotation. If the coefficient of static friction is 0.6, what is the maximum frequency of rotation such that he coin does not slip? Suppose the frequency is cut in half. Now how far from the center can the coin be placed? The maximum frequency occurs when Fc = Fs Fc = 4 2 f 2 mR; F s =s mg ; 4 2 f 2 mR = s mg ; f = Fc = Fs

*10-61. The laboratory apparatus shown in Fig. 10-19 allows a rotating mass to stretch a spring so that the supporting cord is vertical at a particular frequency of rotation. Assume the mass of the bob is 400 g and the radius of revolution is 14 cm. With a stop watch the time for 50 revolutions is found to be 35 s. What is the magnitude and direction of the force acting on the bob? First find f in (rev/s). f = 50 rev = 1.429 rev/s . Fc = 4 2 f 2 mR 35 s

*10-62. In Problem 10-2 above, assume that a 100-g mass is added to the 400-g bob? The force required to stretch the spring should be the same as before, but the rotating mass has increased. What changes when the experiment is performed again so that the centripetal force is the same as before? On what does the centripetal force act in this experiment? Since the centripetal force must be the same, it is necessary that the velocity be reduced so that: Fc = mv 2 ; The product mv2 must be the same. R m1v12 (400 g)v12 = m2 (500 g)

v2 =

## v2 = (0.894)(1.26 m/s); v2 = 1.13 m/s

Thus, the object moves slower and the frequency of revolution decreases so that the
2 centripetal force acting ON the bob does not change: m1v12 = m2 v2

*10-63. A 10-in. diameter platform turns at 78 rpm. A bug rests on the platform 1 in. from the outside edge. If the bug weighs 0.02 lb, what force acts on it? What exerts this force? Where should the bug crawl in order to reduce this force by one-half? f = 78 rev/min = 1.30 rev/s; m = W/g = 0.02 lb/32 ft/s2; m = 0.000625 slugs R = 5 in. 1 in. = 4 in.; R = (4/12) ft = 0.333 ft; Fc = 4 2 (1.3 rev/s) 2 (0.000625 slug)(0.333 ft) ; Fc = 42f2 mR Fc = 0.0139 lb

The central force ON the bug is exerted BY the platform (Static friction). Since Fc is proportional to R, halving the radius will also halve the force!
