#### Question

A stone of mass m tied to a string of length l is rotated in a circle with the other end of the string as the centre. The speed of the stone is v. If the string breaks, the stone will move

towards the centre

away from the centre

along a tangent

will stop.

#### Solution

along a tangent

The stone will move in a circle and the direction of velocity at any instant is always along the tangent at that point. Therefore, the stone will move along the tangent to the circle at a point where the string breaks.

Is there an error in this question or solution?

Solution A Stone of Mass M Tied to a String of Length L is Rotated in a Circle with the Other End of the String as the Centre. the Speed of the Stone is V. Concept: Circular Motion.
