The smooth block B, having a mass of 2 kg, is attached to the vertex A of the right circular cone using a light cord. The cone is rotating at a constat angular rate about the z axis such that the block attains a speed of 5 m/s. At this speed, determine the tension in the cord and the reaction which the cone exerts on the block. Neglect the size of the block. 1) 1015.7 N and 1321.5
N 

From the property
of similar triangles So, the tension in the cord and the normal reaction which the cone exerts on the block are 1015.7 N and 1321.5 N respectively.
