Note: 1. Centre of mass of two particles always lies on the line joining their individual centre of masses. 2. If masses are equal their centre of mass lies on the mid of line joining them. 3. If one of the mass is heavier then centre of mass lies close to that mass. 4. If no external force acts on a system, then centre of mass moves with constant velocity. This can proves as follows: Consider a system of particles, Net force acting on system is: dP F dt Where P is the linear momentum of system. Since no external force acts we have: dP 0 dt dP 0 Md (Vcm ) 0 Vcm cons tan t CONCEPT OF TORQUE Torque is defined as the turning effect of a given force.

Mathematically torque of a given force about any point is equal to product of force and perpendicular distance of force from that point. It is denoted by τ Thus τ = (Force applied)×(Perpendicular distance) Consider a particle at P at which a force F is acting as shown. This particle is turning about point O. Distance OP = r, and angle between F and r is φ Thus τ =(F)×(rsinφ) τ = rFsinφ In vector form it may be written as r F SI units: SI units of torque is Nm It is a vector quantity and its direction is perpendicular to plane containing r and F. 3

CONCEPT OF ANGULAR MOMENTUM Turning effect of linear momentum of a particle about any point is called angular momentum. Angular momentum is also called moment of momentum. Mathematically angular momentum of a particle about any point is equal to the product of its linear momentum and its perpendicular distance from that point.

It is denoted by L, thus L = (Linear momentum)×(perpendicular distance) Consider a particle having linear momentum p turning abut point O. Its distance from O is OP = r. and angle between r and p is say φ. By definition L = (p)×(OM) From right triangle: L = (p)×(rsinφ) L = rpsinφ. In vector form: Lrp SI units: its units are kgm2s-1.

A door 1.0 m wide, having a mass of 15 kg, is hinged at one side so that it can rotate without friction about a vertical axis. A bullet having mass 10 g and speed 400 m/s is fired into the door in a direction perpendicular to the plane of the door and imbeds itself at the exact centre of the door. Find the angular velocity of the door just after the bullet imbeds itself. If kinetic energy conserved? [Ans: 0.4 rad/s] 76. A solid sphere of mass 100 g and radius 2.5 cm rolls, without sliding with a uniform velocity of 10 cm/s along a straight line on a smooth horizontal table. Calculate its total energy in erg. [Ans: 7000 erg] 77. A solid circular disc rolls down an inclined plane without slipping. Deduce an expression for its acceleration. [Ans: (2/3)gsinθ] 78. An inextensible and flexible carpet of length 8 m is wound together and is placed on an inclined ramp. With one of its ends fixed on it. When it is allowed to roll down the ramp, determine the time taken by the carpet to unwound completely. [Ans: 2s] 79. A flywheel weighs 10 ton and the whole weight may be considered to be concentrated at a distance of 3ft from the axis. What is the amount of energy stored in the flywheel when rotating at a speed of 100 rev/min. 80. A narrow uniform metal bar, 1m long, weighing 3 kg rotates one per sec. What is its K.E, if the axis of rotation passes through its (C.G) and one extreme end? [Ans: π2/2, 2π2J] 81. You are given two spheres of the same mass and size and appearance, but one of them is hollow and the other is solid. How will you find which is hollow and which is solid. 82. A carpet of mass m is made of inextensible material is rolled along its length in the form of a cylinder of radius R and is kept on a rough floor. The carpet starts unrolling without sliding on the floor when a negligibly small push is given to it. Calculate the horizontal velocity of the axis of the cylindrical 14 gR ] part of the carpet when its radius reduces to R/2. [Ans: 3 83. If a sphere rolls (starting from rest) in 5.3 sec along a plane 1 m in length of which the upper end is raised 1 cm above the lower. Find the acceleration due to gravity. [Ans:9.97 ms-2] 84. A solid spherical ball rolls on a table. What fraction of its total k. E is rotational? [Ans: 2/7] 85. A ring, a disc and a sphere all of the same radius and mass roll down an inclined plane from the same height h. Which of the three reaches the bottom (i) earliest and (ii) latest? 86. A flywheel starts rotating from rest because of an external torque of 2.1 nm. The torque is removed after the flywheel rotates by 10 revolutions. It continues to rotate by 60 revolutions more before coming to rest. Total time taken is 20 seconds. Calculate the moment of inertia of the flywheel and the maximum velocity attained by it. [Ans: 0.117 kgm2, 14πrad/s] 18
