A stone tied to a string of length l is whirled around a vertical circle with the other end of the string at the centre. At a certain instant of time the stone is at the lowest position and has a speed u. What is the magnitude of change in its velocity as it reaches a position where the string is horizontal?
Let’s assume that the potential energy at the lowest position be zero. So, when the string is horizontal, the stone has risen by a vertical height l, the length of the string which is also the radius of the vertical circle.
If v is the magnitude of velocity at the horizontal position, then according to the law of conservation of energy,
KE+PE at the lowest position = KE+PE at the horizontal position
From the equation above, v-u can be calculated.
