A cubical block of side 30 cm is moving with velocity 2 ms−1 on a smooth horizontal surface. The surface has a bump at a point O as shown in figure. The angular velocity (in rad/s) of the block immediately after it hits the bump, is :

A
5.0
B
6.7
C
9.4
D
13.3

Explanation

Before hitting point 0,

angular moment = mv $$ \times $$ $${a \over 2}$$

After hitting point 0,

Angular momentum = $${\rm I}\omega $$

$$ \therefore $$    $${\rm I}\omega $$ = $${{mva} \over 2}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$   $$\omega $$ = $${{mva} \over {2{\rm I}}}$$

$${\rm I}$$ = moment of inertia about edge,

=   $${{m{a^2}} \over 6} + m{\left( {{a \over {\sqrt 2 }}} \right)^2}$$

=   $${{m{a^2}} \over 6} + {{m{a^2}} \over 2}$$

=   $${{2m{a^2}} \over 3}$$

$$ \therefore $$   $$\omega $$ = $${{mva} \over {2 \times {{2m{a^2}} \over 3}}}$$ = $${{3v} \over {4a}}$$ = $${{3 \times 2} \over {4 \times 0.3}}$$ = 5 rad/s

(Take the radius of the drum to be 1.25 m and its axle to be horizontal) :
A
0.4
B
1.3

In the figure shown ABC is a uniform wire. If centre of mass of wire lies vertically below point A, then $${{BC} \over {AB}}$$ is close to :

A
1.85
B
1.37
C
1.5
D
3

Explanation



Here   AB = x

and   BC = y

and   $$\lambda $$ = linear mass density.

As centre of mass is below point A, so horizontal distance of the centre of mass from B is = xcos60o = $${x \over 2}$$

$$ \therefore $$   XCM = $${x \over 2}$$ = $${{{m_1}{x_1} + {m_2}{x_2}} \over {{m_1} + {m_2}}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$   $${x \over 2}$$ = $${{\left( {\lambda x} \right)\left( {{x \over 2}} \right)\cos {{60}^o} + \left( {\lambda y} \right)\left( {{y \over 2}} \right)} \over {\lambda \left( {x + y} \right)}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$   $${x \over 2}$$ = $${{{{{x^2}} \over 4} + {{{y^2}} \over 2}} \over {x + y}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$   x2 + xy = $${{{x^2}} \over 2} + {y^2}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$   x2 + 2xy $$-$$ 2y2 = 0

$$ \therefore $$   x = $${{ - 2y \pm \sqrt {{{\left( {2y} \right)}^2} - 4.1\left( { - 2{y^2}} \right)} } \over {2.1}}$$

=    $${{ - 2y \pm \sqrt {12{y^2}} } \over 2}$$

=   $$-$$ y $$ \pm $$ $$\sqrt 3 $$y

$${x \over y} \ne - \sqrt 3 - 1$$  as  $${x \over y}$$ = positive.

$$ \therefore $$   $${x \over y}$$ = $$\sqrt 3 - 1$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$   $${y \over x}$$ = $${1 \over {\sqrt 3 - 1}} \times {{\sqrt 3 + 1} \over {\sqrt 3 + 1}}$$

=   $${{\sqrt 3 + 1} \over 2}$$

=   $${{2.732} \over 2}$$

=   1.366 $$ \simeq $$ 1.37

The moment of inertia of a uniform cylinder of length $$l$$ and radius R about its perpendicular bisector is $$I$$. What is the ratio $${l \over R}$$ such that the moment of inertia is minimum?
A
$${3 \over {\sqrt 2 }}$$
B
$$\sqrt {{3 \over 2}} $$
C
$${{\sqrt 3 } \over 2}$$
D
1

Explanation

The volume of the cylinder V = $$\pi {R^2}l$$

$$\therefore$$ $${R^2} = {V \over {\pi l}}$$

We know, moment of inertia of a uniform cylinder of length $$l$$ and radius R about its perpendicular bisector is,

$$I = {{M{l^2}} \over {12}} + {{M{R^2}} \over 4}$$

[ Putting $${R^2} = {V \over {\pi l}}$$ in this equation]

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$I = {{M{l^2}} \over {12}} + {{MV} \over {4\pi l}}$$

Here $$I$$ is a function of $$l$$ as M and V are constant.

$$I$$ will be maximum or minimum when $${{{dI} \over {dl}}}$$ = 0.

$$ \Rightarrow {{Ml} \over 6} - {{MV} \over {4\pi {l^2}}} = 0$$

$$ \Rightarrow {{Ml} \over 6} = {{MV} \over {4\pi {l^2}}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow {l \over 6} = {{\pi {R^2}l} \over {4\pi {l^2}}}$$ [ as $${V = \pi {R^2}l}$$ ]

$$ \Rightarrow {{{R^2}} \over {{l^2}}} = {4 \over 6}$$

$$ \Rightarrow {l \over R} = \sqrt {{3 \over 2}} $$
