1. The centripetal acceleration is
a = r?2 = (0.14)(2?*1.7)2 =15.9729m/s^2
2. Given that
The radius(r)=10cm=0.10m
The angular valocity isrevolutions/sec
The centripetal acceleration is substitute the above given values you get the required answer
3. Radius of the container R =14cm
Angular velocity of the cylinder w= 1.7rev/s
Centripetal accelearation a = Rw2
4. The equation for centripetal acceleration is a = v^2/R; where v is velocity and R is radius. The equation for velocity is change in X (position) divided by the change in time, t. The change of position during a circle motion is 2(PI)R times #of Revolutions all divided by time, t. So v = (2(3.14)(0.11m)(2.4)/1sec Place this velocity in the equation for centripetal acceleration (v^2/R) and you should get an answer of [6.25 m/sec^2].

Casting of molten metal is important in many industrialprocesses. Centrifugal casting is used for manufacturing pipes,bearings and many other structures. A veriety of sophisticatedtechniques have been invented. A cylindrical enclosure is rotated rapidly and steadily about a horizontal axis. Molten metal is poured into therotating cylinder and then cooled, forming the finished product.Turning the cylinder at a high rotation rate forces the solidifying metal strongly to the outside. Any bubbles are displace toward the axis, so unwanted voids will not be present in the casting. Sometimes it is desirable to form a composite casting, such as fora bearing. Here a stron steel outer surface is poured, followed byan inner lining of special low- friction metal. In some applications a very strong metal is given a coating of corrosion-resistan metal. Centrifugal casting results in stronbonding between the layers.
Suppose that a copper sleeve of iner radius 2.10 cm and outer radius 2.20 cm is to be cast. To eleminate bubbles and give high structural intgrity, the centripetal acceleration of each bit of metal should be 100g what rate of rotation is required?

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is $$\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}$$, the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use $$\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}$$ for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for $$\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}$$, since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k. asked 2021-02-19
