*Answer can only contain numeric values

A carpet of mass M and of inextensible material is rolled along its length in the form of a cylinder of radius R and is kept on a rough floor. The carpet starts unrolling without sliding on the floor where a negligibly small push is given to it. The horizontal velocity of the axis of the cylindrical part of the carpet when its radius reduces to R/2. is  then  x  is :


ρ = density of carpet material

The correct answer is: 14

A thin uniform square plate ABCD of side a and mass m is suspended in vertical plane as shown in the figure. AE and BF  are two massless inextensible strings.  The line AB is horizontal. Find the tension in the string AE just after BF is cut is 2mg/x , then is :


Let b and α 

are linear according to centre of mass and angular according of the plane, just after BF is cut

mg – T = mb         ...(1)

Taking torque about centre of mass

The correct answer is: 5

A uniform rod of length R and mass M is freely to rotate about a horizontal axis passing through hinge P as is figure. First it is taken aside such that it becomes horizontal and then released. At the lowest point the rod hits the block B of mass m and stops. If ratio of mass of rod M to the mass of block m such that the block B completes the circle   then x is. Neglect any friction.


Minimum velocity required by block m to complete the motion in 

conserving mechanical energy

conserving angular momentum w.r.t. P before and after collision.

The correct answer is: 15

A square plate of edge a/2 is cut out from a uniform square plate of edge a’ as shown in figure. The mass of the remaining portion is M. The moment of inertia of the shaded portion about an axis passing through O (centre of the square of side a and perpendicular to plane of the plate is given by nma2. Find the value of n?


Let m1 = mass of the square plate of slide a
and m2 = mass of the square of side ‘a/2’
 (σ being the areal density)
and m2 – m1 = M.

The correct answer is: 0.1875

*Answer can only contain numeric values

In the figure shown a block B of mass m can slide on a fixed horizontal smooth plane. A uniform solid sphere A of radius r of the same mass rolls without sliding on the block B. Find the angular acceleration of the sphere xg/r then x is :


The freely body diagrams of sphere A and Block B are as shown

Applying Newton’s law to block and sphere

F – f = ma       ...(1)
f = macm     ...(2)
Since the sphere does not slip cover the block, therefore from constraint

solving equation (1), (2), (3) and (4)
we get the angular acceleration of sphere
The correct answer is: 10

*Answer can only contain numeric values

A billiard ball at rest is struck horizontally one tenth of the diameter below the top. If P be the linear impulse of the blow find the initial kinetic energy of the ball is  Then x is given by the mass of the ball is being M.


Using momentum equation

using angular impulse-momentum equation. w.r.t. centre

Total K.E. = Translational K.E. + Rotational K.E.

The correct answer is: 13

A uniform rod of length 75 cm hinged at one ends and is free to rotate in vertical plane. It is released from rest when rods is horizontal. When the rod becomes vertical, it is broken at mid-point and lower part now moves freely. The distance of centre of lower part from it again becomes vertical for the first time is  r. Find the approximate value of  2r.


The correct answer is: 5

*Answer can only contain numeric values

Figure shows an arrangement of masses hanging from a ceiling. In equilibrium, each rod is horizontal, has negligible mass and extends three times as far to the right of the wire supporting it as to the left. If mass m4, is 48 kg then mass m1 (in kg) is equal to


The correct answer is: 1

*Answer can only contain numeric values

A solid homogeneous cylinder of height h = 1m and base r = 1m  is kept vertically on a conveyor belt  moving horizontally with an increasing velocity v = 1 + t2. If the cylinder is not allowed to slip find the time when the cylinder is about to topple.


WRT of belt, pseudo force ma act on cylinder at centre of mass as shown about to cylinder will be just about to topple when torque to weight w.r.t. P.

The correct answer is: 10

*Answer can only contain numeric values

A small block of mass m is rigid attached at P to a ring of mass 3m and radius r. The system is released from rest at θ = 90° and rolls without sliding. The angular acceleration of hoop just after released is given by ng/r.  Find the value of n.


f = 4a

mg – f = 4ma
from (1) and (2
⇒ 8ma = mg

The correct answer is: 0.125
