    Can someone explain the geometry of 2 to me? I can get that the c.o.m acts at 3a/4 above base but then how do I work out theta maybe I'm being retarded idk

    You now need to include the tension in the string in your horizontal equation. If the disc whizzes round too fast, the particle is likely to fly outwards so the friction is acting inwards.

    If the disc goes round too slowly, the tension in the elastic string is likely to pull the particle inwards, so the friction will be acting outwards.

    You can find the tension in the string using Hooke's law because you know where the particle is and so how long the string is.

    You'd have helped yourself if your diagram was a bit more precise.

    The angle between the vertical line you've drawn from A and the axis of the cone (dotty on the original diagram) is theta. So the angle that you are working with is 90 - theta.

    Why can't i resolve for tensions since it is at rest?
    Is it because it isnt in equilibrium and will spring back up after the instant.

    Yeah, it needs to be in equilibrium for you to use something like "mg = 2T". When it reaches its lowest point, the tensions will be greater than the weight (hence why it moves up again) so you'd need to know the acceleration to use F = ma; that's M4 stuff! :goofy:

    Thought so. I always make mistakes in M3 but never M4.

    Could anyone help me on question 3 June 2005: https://8a40d6c38bafca75cc407741c0f3...%20Edexcel.pdf
    Surely when one string is taut, the other is slack and hence there is only one elastic energy. However the mark scheme talks about 4 different elastic energies.

    AB is 4l. The natural length of the string is 2l, so when you release the particle, both parts of the string are stretched and will remain so.

    can someone explain the method to use for question 2 from the exam style paper in the textbook?
    If you send a picnof it I can since i don't have the text book anymore.

    Could someone explain second half of example 17 and 19 please. I'm so confused.

    EDIT: Centre of mass chapter.
