Centripetal force:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{F}}}_{{\mathbf{C}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{m}{\mathbf{v}}^{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{r}}}$

Centripetal force is due to tension on the hanging mass.

How will the desired centripetal force be set?

1. By measuring the velocity, radius, and mass of the test mass.

2. By choosing a value for the hanging mass.

3. By measuring the acceleration and mass of the test mass.

4. The centripetal force will not be set in this experiment.
