Answer Text:
The conical pendulum:
-It consists of a small massive object tied to the end of a thin string tied to affixed rigid support.
- The object is then pulled at an angle then made to whirl in a horizontal circle.
-When speed of the object is constant the angle θ becomes constant also.
-If the speed is increased the angle θ increases, that is the object rises and describes a circle of bigger radius.
-Therefore as the angular velocity increases ‘r’ also increases.
