Four masses are fixed on a massless rod as shown fig. The moment of inertia about the axis P is about :
Moment of inertia=m X r2
Here origin is chosen at the point through which the axis passes the rod. Using the formula total moment of inertia about axis is,
=2 X 5 X (0.2)2 + 2 X 2 X (0.4)2
An inclined plane makes an angle of 30o with the horizontal. A ring rolling down this inclinedplane from rest without slipping has a linear acceleration equal to :
We know for a rolling body acceleration down an inclined plane, a = g.sinθ / (1 + I/mR2)
Where I is body's moment of inertia. Here, I = mR2
Thus just by putting the values to the formula we get
a = g.sin 30° / 2
A disc of radius b and mass m rolls down an inclined plane of vertical height h. the translational speed when it reaches the bottom of the plane will be
The difference in the potential of the body when it rolls down through a vertical height h, is mgh.
As the KE at the top point is zero and let say KE at bottom is ½ mv2 + ½ Iw2
Where m is its mass, I is its moment of inertia, I = ½ mr2
Where r is its radius, v is its gained translational speed and w is its gained angular speed.
w = v/r
Hence equating PE and KE gives
mgh = ½ mv2 + ½ Iw2
That is mgh = ½ mv2 + ½ mr2.(v/r)2
We get mgh = ½ mv2 + ¼ mv2
Thus we get v = √gh/3

A solid sphere of radius R has moment of inertia I about its diameter. It is melted into a disc of radius r and thickness t. If its moment of inertia about the tangential axis (which is perpendicular to plane of the disc), is also equal to I, then the value of r and t are (respectively)
We must apply the parallel axis theorem to find moment of inertia of the disc about the given axis. On equating the moment of inertia of sphere and disc we will get a relation between "r" and "R". Also, mass remains constant and from here we can get the relation between "t" and "R" (for disc volume = area x thickness).

A thin rod of length 4 l , mass 4 m is bent at the points as shown in the fig. What is the moment of inertia of the rod about the axis passing through point O and perpendicular to the plane of the paper :
Since the mass of rod is 54m and length is 4l.
so mass C = m
and length of AB = BO=OC= CD = l
WE, know moment of Inertia of a rod about to end = ml2/3
So, moment of Inertia of AB, BO, OC, CD about B, O, O, C respectively = ml2/3
From parallel axis theorem
Moment of Inertia of AB about O.
Similarly od CD about O =4ml2/3
SO moment of Inertia Rod about O
In the pulley system shown, if radii of the bigger and smaller pulley are 2 m and 1 m respectively and the acceleration of block ‘A’ is 5 m/s2 in the downward direction , then the acceleration of block B will be :
Since both pulley are connected to each other. So, their angular acceleration are equal.
⇒α1=α2⇒a1/ r1=a2/ r2 because α=a/r
Therefore, D is the correct option.
An equilateral prism of mass m rests on a rough horizontal surface with coefficient of friction m . A horizontal force F is applied on the prism as shown in the fig. If the coefficient of friction is sufficiently high so that the prism does not slide before toppling, then the minimum force required to topple the prism is :
As the force is applied towards right the prism will topple at O. Now, for the prism to topple the torque due to force "F" must be greater than or equal to the torque due to weight "Mg" about the point O.
