A model train, with a mass of #2 kg#, is moving on a circular track with a radius of #4 m#. If the train's rate of revolution changes from #5 Hz# to #1 Hz#, by how much will the centripetal force applied by the tracks change by?

Answer:

The centipetal force will change by #5053.2N#

Explanation:

The centripetal force is

#F=mr omega^2#

The variation in centripetal force is

#DeltaF=mr(Delta omega)^2#

#=2*4*((5-1)2pi)^2#

#=8*64*pi^2#

#=5053.2N#
