# Which direction does the stone move?

## Which direction does the stone move?

When the string breaks ,the centripetal force ceases to act on the stone . Now according to Newton’s first law of motion ,the stone continues to moves along the straight line in direction of instantaneous velocity . This is tangential and hence the stone fly off tangentially.

### What keeps the stone in circular motion?

Any object moving in a circle (or along a circular path) experiences a centripetal force. That is, there is some physical force pushing or pulling the object towards the center of the circle. This is the centripetal force requirement.

#### When a stone executing circular motion is released it flies off tangentially?

The velocity of the stone at any instant is along the tangent to the circle at that instant When the string breaks centripetal force whirling the stone vanishes Therefore on account of inertia the stone flies off tangentially .

**When a stone is rotated in a circle by a string?**

So when an object performs circular motion then along the radial direction there will be centripetal force acting. Centripetal force acts towards the center, whereas tension is a pulling force and it also will act towards the center from the stone. Hence centripetal force will provide the tension in string.

**Why it is easier to maintain the motion than to start it?**

Explanation:Higher the weight or higher the coefficient of static friction more frictional force is required to overcome to set body into motion. Once body is set into motion force of kinetic friction come into play. Kinetic friction is less than static friction. Hope it helps.

## What causes the pail to move in circular motion?

As a bucket of water is tied to a string and spun in a circle, the tension force acting upon the bucket provides the centripetal force required for circular motion. As the moon orbits the Earth, the force of gravity acting upon the moon provides the centripetal force required for circular motion.

### How do you find tangential acceleration?

The tangential acceleration = radius of the rotation * its angular acceleration. It is always measured in radian per second square. Its dimensional formula is [T-2].

#### Why does the whirling stone tied with a string moves tangentially if string breaks suddenly?

Tension in the string provides the necessary force required to change the direction of motion while whirling in horizontal circle. When the string breaks, the force on the stone ceases to act. Hence, stone cannot change its direction of motion and flies off tangentially.

**Why does a revolving stone tied in a string flies away when the string breaks?**

It is due to the inertia of direction. When the string breaks, the force acting on the stone ceases. In the absence of force, the stone flies away in the direction of instantaneous velocity which is along the tangent to the circular path.

**What happens to a stone tied to the end of a string and whirled in a circle if the string suddenly breaks explain why?**

What happens to a stone tied to the end of string and whirled in a circle if the string suddenly breaks? If the string suddenly breaks, the stone will fly off tangentially along the straight line due to inertia of direction. This is because, the velocity at any point is directed along the tangential at that point.

## When a stone is tied around the end of a string and is rotated What is the pull of the string is called?

The pull of the string is known as centripetal force.

### Is it easier to start motion in a lighter body than a heavier body?

Answer: yes it is way too much easier. Explanation: The rule is that a lighter object is easier to accelerate than a heavier object if you apply the same force to each object.

#### How are sine, cosine, tangent and Tan related?

Sine, Cosine and Tangent Sine, Cosine and Tangent (often shortened to sin, cos and tan) are each a ratio of sides of a right angled triangle: For a given angle θ each ratio stays the same no matter how big or small the triangle is

**How many generations are in the Stine family?**

The Stine family, including 3 generations of Stine family members, together with hundreds of associates, work side by side together toward providing the nation’s best home improvement shopping experience and premier preferred workplace of its kind.

**What kind of air compressor does Stine use?**

Cordless *BRUSHLESS* Compact Drill and Impact Driver Kit Lithium-Ion 20 Max Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 White Water-Based Styrenated Acrylic Primer and Sealer 1 gal. Craftsman 6 gal. Pancake Portable Air Compressor 150 psi 0.8 hp
