An amusement park ride consists of a rotating circular platform 8.07 m in diameter from which 10 kg seats are suspended at the end of 2.87 m massless chains.

An amusement park ride consists of a rotating circular platform 8.07 m in diameter from which 10 kg seats are suspended at the end of 2.87 m massless chains. When the system rotates, the chains make an angle of 37.3 ◦ with the vertical. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s 2 .

1) What is the speed of each seat? Answer in units of m/s.

2) If a child of mass 45.3 kg sits in a seat, what is the tension in the chain (for the same angle)? Answer in units of N.
