A model train, with a mass of #8 kg#, is moving on a circular track with a radius of #6 m#. If the train's rate of revolution changes from #3 Hz# to #2 Hz#, by how much will the centripetal force applied by the tracks change by?

Answer:

The centripetal force is #=1895N#

Explanation:

The centripetal force is

#F=mr omega^2#

The variation in centripetal force is

#DeltaF=mr(Delta omega)^2#

#=8*6*((3-2)2pi)^2#

#=8*6*4*pi^2#

#=1895N#
