boy B needs hold more tightly because 1. boy B has to face more centrifugal force as mv2/r=F 2. Boy B has less moment of inertia(mr2)

Boy A has to hold tightly.

 

Reason:

We know,

Torque = RxF

Hence, we can say, that the person who is at a greater distance from the axis of rotation (center of merry-go-round) experiences a greater torque. Since, he faces more torque, hence boy A needs to apply greater force to balance that torque. Therefore, Boy A needs to hold tighter.

torque = F*r A F=mv2/r T=mv2/r *r=mv2 B F=mv2/R T=mv2/R *R=mv2 (mv2/r is centrifugal force) So, A and B experience the same torque B experiences greater force as mv2/r=F So r of B is smaller than A so, force will be greater.........

pls cancel all the ans above , the correct ans is- Boy A because it has to face the centrifugal force mv2/R = m(wr)2/r=mw2r. w is equel here so the one with greater radius will face more force , hencce boy A has to hold more tightly. THIS IS CORRECT!!!!! Sorry for wrong ans above.
