# Dancing Loop

Classical Mechanics Level pending

A uniform circular loop (string) of radius $$R_{0} = 5\text{ cm}$$ and negligible thickness is rotating clockwise with a tangential speed $$v_{0}=10\text{ cms}^{-1}$$. Find the speed of waves travelling on this loop in $$\text{cms}^{-1}$$.

Details and Assumptions:

• Assume a gravity free space/surrounding.

• Consider the mass per unit length of the string as $$0.25\text{ gcm}^{-1}$$.
