If the disc together with springmass system, rotates about its axis with an angular velocity ω, ( k >> mω^{2}) the relative change in the length of the spring is best given by the option [2020]
Correct Answer is Option (3)
Let the elongation in length of the spring be Δl.
Forces act on the system are:
(i) Centripetal force, which act outward which help in expansion in spring:
F_{c} = mω^{2} (l + Δl)
(ii) Spring restoring force, which act inward which opposed the further expansion in spring.
F_{s} = kΔl
At balanced point, we have:
The relative change in the length of the spring is:

The coefficient of static friction between the plane and the block is 0.6. What should be the minimum value of force P such that the block does not move downward? (Take g = 10 m/s^{2}) [2019]
(a) 32 N
(b) 18 N
(c) 23 N

Correct Answer is Option (a)
The coefficient of static friction, μ = 0.6
The resultant force is
P + μmg cos θ = 3 + mg sin θ
Given m = 10 kg, μ = 0.6 and g = 10 m/s^{2}
⇒ P + 0.6 × 50√2 = 3 + 50√2

The end of one rod is connected to the floor by a stationary pivot and the end of the other rod has a roller that rolls along the floor in a slot. As the roller goes back and forth, a 2 kg weight moves up and down. If the roller is moving towards right at a constant speed, the weight moves up with a [2017]
(a) Speed which is 3/4th of that of the roller when the weight is 0.4 m above the ground
(b) Constant speed
(c) Decreasing speed
(d) Increasing speed
Correct Answer is Option (c)
We know that the velocity is the rate of change in displacement, s with respect to time, t. Here from the diagram we can see that the weight moves up by covering the distance y in time t towards the point C.
Let V_{c} be the speed (velocity) of the weight moving up towards the point C.
Then, rate of change in y with respect to time is the speed of weight moving up
⇒ dy / dt = V_{c} → 1
V_{c} is the velocity (speed) of the moving up toward point C
Let V_{A} be the velocity (speed) with which the roller moves right, then
⇒ dx / dt = V_{A} → 2
V_{A} is the velocity (speed) of the moving right
We can understand clearly if we see the diagram
From the diagram,
Let us take the triangle AOC, then
⇒ sinθ = opposite side / hypotenuse
⇒ sinθ = y / 1
⇒ sinθ = y
Differentiating above equation,
From equation 2 we get
Then,
We know that,
⇒ cosθ = adjacent side / hypotenuse
⇒ cosθ = x / 2
Differentiating
From equation 1 we get
From the equation 3 and 4 we get
It is given that the roller is moving right, if the roller moves rightwards then the angle θ increases, if θ increases then V_{C} will decrease (from the above relation)
V_{c} is the speed (velocity) of the weight moving up towards the point C.
So, the speed decreases when the weight moves upward.
Hence the correct answer is option (D) decreasing speed
Note : We are saying that if θ increases then V_{C} will decrease from the relation we got
We can see that V_{C} is directly proportional to V_{A} and inversely proportional to θ, so if the θ increases then V_{C} will decrease.

Free body diagram is shown in the figure.
Psuedo force on the object is 2mg in the downward direction as seen from the rocket frame of reference.
Normal force in the direction perpendicular to the inclined plane.
N = 3mg cos(θ)
Maximum frictional force in the direction along the plane,
F_{r} = μ_{m}N cos(θ)
∴ Fr = 3μ_{m}mg cos(θ)
This should balance the force on the block along the downward direction of plane.
3mg sin(θ) = 3μ_{m}mg cos(θ)
μ_{m} = tan(θ)
