A small trolley of mass 2kg resting on a horizontal turntable is connected by a light spring to the centre of the table. When the turntable is set into rotation at a speed of 300rpm, the length of the stretched spring is 40cm. If the original length of the spring is 35cm, determine the force constant of the spring.

Answer:
Dear student,
Yes, you can.
 
When the table is rotated, the tension in the spring is equal to centripetal force.
F =mv^2/r = mr(omega)^2
 
Hope this helps.
