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?
