Paragraph for Questions 9 and 10
The general motion of a rigid body can be considered to be a combination of (i) a motion of its centre of
mass about an axis, and (ii) its motion about an instantaneous axis passing through the centre of mass.
These axes need not be stationary. Consider, for example, a thin uniform disc welded (rigidly fixed)
horizontally at its rim to a massless stick, as shown in the figure. When the discstick system is rotated
about the origin on a horizontal frictionless plane with angular speed ω, the motion at any instant can be
taken as a combination of (i) a rotation of the centre of mass of the disc about the zaxis, and (ii) a rotation
of the disc through an instantaneous vertical axis passing through its centre of mass (as is seen from the
changed orientation of points P and Q). Both these motions have the same angular speed ω in this case
Now consider two similar systems as shown in the figure: Case(a) the disc with its face vertical and
parallel to xz plane; Case (b) the disc with its face making an angle of 45° with xy plane and its
horizontal diameter parallel to xaxis. In both the cases, the disc is welded at point P, and the systems are
rotated with constant angular speed ω about the zaxis.
Q. Which of the following statements about the instantaneous axis (passing through the centre of mass) is correct?

Paragraph for Questions 11 and 12
The βdecay process, discovered around 1900, is basically the decay of a neutron (n). In the laboratory, a proton (p) and an electron (e^{–}) are observed as the decay products of the neutron. Therefore, considering the decay of a neutron as a twobody decay process, it was predicted theoretically that the kinetic energy of the electron should be a constant. But experimentally, it was observed that the electron kinetic energy has continuous spectrum. Considering a threebody decay process, i.e.
around 1930, Pauli explained the observed electron energy spectrum. Assuming the antineutrino to be massless and possessing negligible energy, and the neutron to be at rest, momentum and energy conservation principles are applied. From this calculation, the maximum kinetic energy of the electron is 0.8 × 10^{6} eV. The kinetic energy carried by the proton is only the recoil energy.
Q. If the antineutrino had a mass of 3eV/c^{2} (where c is the speed of light) instead of zero mass, what
should be the range of the kinetic energy, K, of the electron?

Most materials have the refractive index, n > 1. So, when a light ray from air enters a naturally occurring
material, then by Snell’s law, it is understood that the refracted ray bends towards the normal.
But it never emerges on the same side of the normal as the incident ray. According to electromagnetism,
the refractive index of the medium is given by the relation, where c is the speed of
electromagnetic waves in vacuum, v its speed in the medium, ε_{r} and μ_{r} are the relative permittivity and
permeability of the medium respectively.
In normal materials, both ε_{r} and μ_{r}, are positive, implying positive n for the medium. When both ε_{r} and μ_{r }are negative, one must choose the negative root of n. Such negative refractive index materials can now
be artificially prepared and are called metamaterials. They exhibit significantly different optical behavior,
without violating any physical laws. Since n is negative, it results in a change in the direction of
propagation of the refracted light. However, similar to normal materials, the frequency of light remains
unchanged upon refraction even in metamaterials.
Q. For light incident from air on a metamaterial, the appropriate ray diagram is

⇒ Diamond is harder than graphite.
⇒ Graphite is good conductor of electricity as each carbon is attached to three Catoms leaving one valency free, which is responsible for electrical conduction, while in diamond, all the four valencies of

⇒ Diamond is better thermal conductor than graphite. Whereas electrical conduction is due to availability of free electrons; thermal conduction is due to transfer of thermal vibrations from atom to atom. A compact and precisely aligned crystal like diamond thus facilitates fast movement of heat.
