Ball - on - a - rope : centripetal force lab simulation

Ball - On - A - Rope: A simulation created to demonstrate the relationship between centripetal force, centripetal acceleration, radius, and velocity. On the next screen you will see a ball being swung around on a rope (looking down from above). As you vary the velocity, radius, and mass, look for patterns in the changes in centripetal force and centripetal acceleration. When you make sense of the relationship, use what you know about Newton's first law to hit the target by cutting the rope. ...
