Two 100 kg lead spheres are suspended from 100-m-long massless cables. The tops of the cables have been carefully anchored exactly 1 m apart. By how much is the distance between the centers of the spheres less than 1 m?

2 Dimensional Motion Problem solving strategy Motion in the X direction is independent of motion in the X direction Break the problem into two parts, on for the X motion and one form the Y motion Handle each part like a 1D problem Express y as a function of x and t for each of the two objects Combine the equations to eliminate unknowns Force and...
