A puck of mass m1 is tied to a string and allowed to revolve in a circle of radius R on a frictionless, horizontal table. The other end of the string passes through a small hole in the center of the table, and an object of mass m2 is tied to it (see figure below). The suspended object remains in equilibrium while the puck on the tabletop revolves http://www.webassign.net/serpse8/6-p-054.gif (a) What is the tension in the string? (Use any variable or symbol stated above along with the following as necessary: g.) (b) What is the radial force acting on the puck? (Use any variable or symbol stated above along with the following as necessary: g.) (c) What is the speed of the puck? (Use any variable or symbol stated above along with the following as necessary: g.) (d) Qualitatively describe what will happen in the motion of the puck if the value of m2 is increased by placing an additional load on the puck. (e) Qualitatively describe what will happen in the motion of the puck if the value of m2 is instead decreased by removing a part of the hanging load. **a digram
