Adjusting the test-mass riser along the platform changes the radius of the circular path. True Or False?

Answer: True.


The statement is true because the force is directly proportional to the radius, velocity, and mass. This constant is proportional and therefore has the velocity and or mass increase the radius must correspondingly adjust to the new parameter in order to keep a constant force due to the conservation of energy.
