Question

A 55.0-kg ice skater is moving at 4.00 m/s when she grabs the loose end of a rope, the opposite end of which is tied to a pole. She then moves in a circle of radius 0.800 m around the pole. Determine the force exerted by the horizontal rope on her arms.

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 3Here given that the mass of the ice skater

$\begin{align*} m = 55.0\,\mathrm{kg} \end{align*}$

As we know the velocity of the ice skater when she grabs the loose end of a rope is her tangential velocity and given that

$\begin{align*} v_{\text{t}} = 4.00\,\mathrm{m\,s^{-1}} \end{align*}$

The radius of the circle in which ice skater moves

$\begin{align*} r = 0.800\,\mathrm{m} \end{align*}$
