Question #39666

a) Consider a simple pendulum of mass m mounted inside a railroad car that is accelerating
to the right with constant acceleration a. Analyse this problem in the non inertial frame
of reference to find the angle alfa(F) with the vertical direction at which the pendulum will
remain at rest relative to the moving car.
b) On Jupiter a day lasts for 9.9 earth hours and the circumference at the equator is
448600 km. If the measured value of gravitational acceleration at the equator is
24.6ms^-2, what is the true gravitational acceleration and the centrifugal
acceleration.
