A metal rod of length L and mass m is pivoted at one end. A thin disk of mass M and radius R ( < L) is attached at its centre to the free end of the rod. Consider two ways the disc is attached : (case A). The disc is not free to rotate about its centre and (case B) the disc is free to rotate about its centre. The rod-disc system performs SHM in vertical plane after being released from the same displaced position. Which of the following statement(s) is(are) true?
A sphere is rolling without slipping on a fixed horizontal plane surface. In the figure below, A is the point of contact, B is the centre of the sphere and C is its topmost point. Then,
If the resultant of all the external forces acting on a system of particles is zero, then from an inertial frame, one can surely say that
