QUESTION: 1

### Three particles A, B and C, each of mass m, are connected to each other by three massless rigid rods to form a rigid, equilateral triangular body of side l. This body is placed on a horizontal frictionless table (x-y plane) and is hinged to it at the point A so that it can move without friction about the vertical axis through A (see figure). The body is set into rotational motion on the table about A with a constant angular velocity w. [JEE'(Scr) 2002] (a) Find the magnitude of the horizontal force exerted by the hinge on the body (b) At time T, when the side BC is parallel to the x-axis, a force F is applied on B along BC (as shown). Obtain the x-component and the y-component of the force exterted by the hinge on the body, immediately after time T.

### A particle is moving in a horizontal uniform circular motion. The angular momentum of the particle is conserved about the point :   [JEE'(Scr) 2003]

Solution:

The net force acting on a particle undergoing uniform circular motion is centripetal force which always passes through the centre of the circle. The torque due to this force about the centre is zero, therefore, is conserved about O.

QUESTION: 10

A solid cylinder of mass m and radius r is rolling on a rough inclined plane of inclination q. The coefficient of friction between the cylinder and incline is m. Then

[JEE' 2006]

Solution:

Fnet = mgsinθ – f
And Torque = F x R
So, if θ is decreased then torque is reduced and resultantly angular acceleration is reduced. Clearly, friction is opposing the translation and supports rotation.

QUESTION: 21

A boy is pushing a ring of mass 2 kg and radius 0.5 m with a stick as shown in the figure. The stick applies a force of 2 N on the ring and rolls it without slipping with an acceleration of 0.3 m/s2. The coefficient of friction between the ground and ring is large enough that rolling always occurs and the coefficient of friction between the stick and the ring is (P/10). The value of P is?

[JEE 2011] Solution:

Let the friction between ground and sphere be fg
Let the friction between stick and sphere be fs​
Let the N be the normal reaction between sphere and stick
By 2nd law of motion
N−fg​= ma and N= 2Newton,
fg​= 1.4Newton
Torque about center is written by τ= Iα and τ= F x r
Hence (fg​−fs) r=Iα
Also, a= αr and I=mr2
On solving fs​=0.8=μN
μ= 0.4= 4/10 therefore P= 4.
