Frank says that if you release the string when swinging a ball in a horizontal circle, the ball flies out in the radial direction defined by the string at the instant you release the ball. John says that it flies out along a tangent line perpendicular to the string, and that it then drops straight down to the ground. Which one, if either, is correct?
Frank, because the centrifugal force is no longer counteracted by the string.
Frank, because balls naturally fly straight out.
John, because there is no centrifugal force.
John, because balls fall straight down when released.
Neither, because although there is no centrifugal force, and the ball's velocity is tangent to the circle at the instant of release, the ball then follows a parabolic trajectory.

A box is dropped onto a conveyor belt moving at 2 m/s. If the coefficient of friction between the box and the belt is 0.3, how long before the box moves without slipping?
A sample of blood is placed into a centrifuge of radius 15.0 cm. The mass of a red corpuscle is 3.0 ? 10^{?16} kg, and the centripetal force required to make it settle out of the plasma is 4.0 ? 10^{?11} N. At how many revolutions per second should the centrifuge be operated?
A space station in the form of a large wheel, 120 m in diameter, rotates to provide an "artificial gravity" of 3.00 m/s^{2} for persons located at the outer rim. Find the rotational frequency of the wheel (in revolutions per minute) that will produce this effect.
An airplane pilot experiences weightlessness as she passes over the top of a loop-the-loop maneuver. If her speed is 200 m/s at the time, find the radius of the loop.
A race car starts from rest on a circular track of radius 400 m. Its speed increases at the constant rate of
0.500 m/s^{2}. At the point where the magnitudes of the radial and tangential accelerations are equal, determine (a) the speed of the race car, and (b) the elapsed time.
