# A motion of a Conical Pendulum

A ball is attached to a string and swung so that it travels in a horizontal circle.

Suddenly the angular velocity is increased. Will the angle with the vertical increase, decrease or stay the same? Justify your answer.

# A car moves around a curved banked road

A curved road is banked at an angle β, and there is no friction between the road and the car’s tires. The road has a radius of curvature of 50 m.
A car has a speed of 90 km/h.

Find angle β.

# The car passes over the top of a convex bridge

A car has a mass of 1500 kg and travels with a speed of 5 m/s. The car passes over the top of a convex bridge that has a radius of curvature equal to 10 m. What is the force of the bridge on the car as it passes over the top?

# To determine the acceleration due to gravity by means of a conical pendulum

A student conducted an experiment to measure the acceleration of gravity. He used a conical pendulum. The conical pendulum is a string with a bob (weight) that revolves around an axis through its point of suspension.
