HC Verma Physics is like a bible for student who are aspiring for IIT-JEE, AIPMT, UG NEET or any engineering or medical entrance. All the questions in the book is of high level, which requires all basics to applied.
We at mycollegebag.in makes your task easy, we have presented complete solution with detailed explanation.

Hi Aman,
for this question you need to understand the free body diagram as given in the solutions
In this, hinges will apply two forces F1 and N1 for hinge1 and F2 and N2 for Hinge2
F1 and F2 are originated to balance the weight of door and N1, N2 are the normal forces which will cancel each other.
so through we may easily calculate.

HC VERMA Vol 1 Page: 191 ;Rotational Mechanics
Example:29 The sphere lies..... from the centre of the sphere.
Can somebody tell me that in its (b) part solution,why does they have Conserved Angular Momentum about the centre of mass? there is Toruqe by friction force that we can't neglect.
According to Me, instead of abt the centre of mass, we should do the same about the point of contact because there is torue only by mg that's very small that we can neglect. So by this method, answer should be: w=(mV*h)/[(2/5)M+m]R*R

Please explain me with Reason if I am wrong or not? and the reason for using this about C.O.M. in book?

Dear Dinesh,
In this question we have used Conservation of angular momentum because it is given in the question that particle and sphere are part of the system that is combined system. so there is no external torque acting on the system. so angular momentum remains constant.
Also friction force occurs when there is any relative motion. But in the question there is no relative motion between particle and sphere nor between sphere and ground because it is given that sphere starts pure rolling(friction = 0) after collision.

dear ,when it is said 'just after collision' that means before friction work.its not practical actually but here meaning is this only.and in b) part pure rolling is not given.even it is given there will be static friction so ext torque n force.

Dear Prashant,
This is just a conceptual question. Do not get confused with the question. Yes the answer is No. We all know that torque depends on the product of two factors i.e force and distance from the point. It may be possble that product becomes zero at any point but it will not be zero at every point.Generally torque becomes zero whenever there is symmetry about any point. We can see symmetry may not be there about every point.
Now taking about torque about the line. In this Torque, we take the distance as the perpendicular distance from the line and everything remains same.

Dear Satish,
In this question it is given that two balls of 0.5 kg is attached to the end of rods of length 50 cm. An impulsive force of 5N is acting on one of the ball. so this force will exert external torque on the system. we know that
Torque(T) = Iα
where I = moment of inertia of particle
and α = angular acceleration
so we know that
T = F x r
I = mr²+mr²
T = Iα
through this we will find the value of angular acceleration(α).
ω = ω₁+αt
t = time and ω₁ = intial velocity
through this we may find ω.

Sir in question 63 I'am not able to understand the reasoning for the velocity of ball B that it has the same velocity.Please explain explicitly.And sir i wanted to ask ,can momentum conservation equation be written for only one part of the system like say only for one ball dealing only with its initial angular and final momentum and not the other ball .

Reply

05/12/2012 10:22pm

Dear Raman,
Here I am going to explain why the Velocity of the ball B remains same after the collision. In order to explain this let us take an example that rod (AB) is moving on a friction less surface with some velocity v. After some time we hinged the point A, then what will happen the point B will start rotating about A with the same velocity because the force is acting on point B only along its length which is providing it the centrifugal force.
Similarly here the point A is not hinged but atleast its velocity is decreased which means that the rod is moving as well as rotating. But this is the case when the frame of reference is outside the rod.
Definitely the velocities will change if we change the frame of reference.
Now I am going to explain “can momentum conservation equation be written for only one part of the system like say only for one ball dealing only with its initial angular and final momentum and not the other ball .”

See do not get confused with the answer given in the solutions
Let us again solve part a of question number 63 –
After and before collision velocity of B = v₀
After collision velocity of (A+P) = v
Before collision velocity of A = v₀
Now applying linear momentum equation. I told you that before applying the conservation of momentum equation you just have to check that all the bodies of the system should be non acceleration. Here A, B, P are moving with constant velocity or are at rest. Now applying linear momentum equation.
Momentum due to B + Momentum due to A = Momentum due to B + Momentum due to (A+P)
Momentum due to A = Momentum due to (A+P)
So while solving question you should take all the bodies.

Dear Raman,
In order to use the momentum equation. Just take all the bodies which are colliding. Then check that whether they are carrying any acceleration or not that may be linear or angular acceleration. If they are carrying then momentum conservation equation is not applied because the velocity is changing every instant.
Now taking about the friction. Forces like friction and weight are the properties of body that's why they are taken as internal forces.
Now may see that while deriving the collisions equations for non elastic collision we apply momentum conservation equations where friction is acting.

Dear Raman,
Solution of question number 85 -
In this question we are taking moment about A,
It is given that the velocity of center of mass is V which can be taken as the tangential velocity. so at that instant it is having moment((MVR) moving in the clockwise direction with respect to A.
Also it is having angular velocity(ω) in the opposite direction which is in the anti-clock wise direction.
Before angular momentum = MVR - Iω
where I = moment of inertia of sphere.
ω = angular velocity
Now when sphere stops rotating, then is having only linear velocity which is taken as the tangential velocity(V₀) with respect to A and we angular momentum = MV₀R
Now equating both values we get V₀
After some time when the sphere starts pure rolling then all the angular momentum are in same direction. We can calculate new velocity.

Solution for Question 86 -
here do not get confused. we are taking the situation after the collision. when the ball has just collided then due to collision the velocity of center of mass of sphere is reversed but the ball is still having angular momentum in the clockwise direction. Now the angular momentum due to center of mass velocity is opposite to the angular momentum due to ω.
Now again taking moment about the point of contact.
Angular momentum = mvR – (2/5) mR² × v/R
Now after some time the sphere will start pure rolling
angular momentum = mv₀R + (2/5) mR²× (v₀/R)
Now equating both we get value of v₀.

Dear Raman,
In question number 85 - The velocity of center of mass is moving with the linear velocity towards the right direction. Now try to analyse that if a particle moving in the circle has tangential velocity towards right then it means that it is moving in the clockwise direction. but In the question it is also given that there is a angular velocity which is in the anticlockwise direction so it is opposite to the above momentum.

Now i am explaining your another doubt that for example you have a ball and you pushed it with linear velocity V towards right . you may see that initially it will slide and after some time it will start rolling clockwise. Here also is the same case initially sphere will slide and as the surface is rough so sphere is having the tendency to roll . But due to the angular velocity in the opposite direction it will not allow the ball to have pure rolling motion. but after some time the opposite angular velocity will come to zero because linear velocity which will try to rotate it in the clockwise direction and when the opposite angular velocity will become zero then it will start rolling purely.

Solution for question 86 -
In this question there is also the same case as above.
Initially the ball was rolling in the clockwise direction but when the rolling ball hits the wall, due to elastic collision its linear velocity reverses but the ball is still having angular velocity in the clockwise direction. then same thing will happen it will resist the motion for sometime then it will become zero and ball will rolling purely having linear and angular momentum in the same direction.

Dear Raman,
if you are preparing for entrance. Then you don't need learn moment of inertia for different objects. Just learn the moment of inertia for the standard objects which are given in your text books or reference books for engineering entrance examinations.

dear Raman, curiosity has no limits apart from test there is a real world where you face many question but answer for most of them lies in books you read so give more stress on study.
apart from this,
moment of inertia only depends upon center of mass and velocity or angular velocit and shape size density doesnt matters.
here i am giving you a link for standard objects whose M.I. ca be calculated easily.

basically plate is a disc
and box is cube so these are very close to standard objects.

Dear shreyas,
when the ball is striking the end of rod, then there are two motions that the rod will experience. these are -
1. linear motion
2. circular motion about center of mass
so, you have to apply the momentum conservation for both the motions to solve the question
applying momentum conservation for linear motion
MV1 = mv
where M = mass of rod
V1 = velocity of rod
m = mass of ball
v = velocity of rod
applying momentum conservation for circular motion about center of mass, we get
mvr/2 = Iω
where r = length of rod

Dear shreyas,
first in am going to explain you about your first question i.e rod of length L collided with ball of mass m.
If we apply conservation of angular momentum about point A, then we are getting negative ω.
yes it depends upon the frame of reference. here our frame of reference is A. now imagine that you are standing at point A.
you know that after colliding, the rod will start rotating about center of mass. Now as you seeing the rod from point A, it is rotating in the anti clock direction about point A. But center of mass will try to rotate in the clock wise direction because velocity of center of mass is in the forward direction. that's why we are getting negative ω.
here torques are opposite to each other.

explanation for other question -

here we will calculate the torques from both point A and B.
first we calculate torque about point A.
here there is only one torque i.e. mgl/2.

now we are calculating torque about B -
now when the spring is cut, the whole tension is transferred to spring at A. Now tension at the spring A is mg.
force at the centroid i.e weight will try to rotate the rod in the anti clock direction about B.
force at spring A will try to rotate the rod in the clock wise direction
now calculating torques about point B, we get
mgl-mgl/2 = mgl/2

so, we are getting same torques about both the points.

Dear Arshdeep,
solution for question 37
In this question there is a block which is connected to the pulley as shown in the diagram.
Let us assume that
T1 = tension in left side string of the pulley.
T2 = tension in the right side string of the pulley
Also if the block is moving with acceleration (a) then the pulley will move down with (a/2) acceleration.
so, here we will just form three equations according to the given conditions -

we can see that tension T1 is acting on the block.
T1 = ma .............(1)

we can also see that due to difference in tension T1 and T2, the pulley will also rotate about its own axis.
(T2 - T1) = Iɑ where ɑ = angular acceleration

Now we are going to solve the third equation. we can see that the pulley is going down due to its weight(m´g) with acceleration a/2
where m´ = mass of the pulley. so, we get
m´g - m´a/2 = T1+T2
where m´a/2 = pseudo force and we know that pseudo force acts in the opposite direction of the motion. That's its sign is negative.
now we have just solved the three equations and calculated the value of acceleration (a).

Dear Arshdeep,
Solution for Question 38
In this is question two blocks which are attached to each other with a string through pulley. these blocks are resting on an isosceles block of angle 45°.
Block of 4 kg is heavier. so, it will move down with acceleration (a)
and block of 2 kg will move up with acceleration (a).
T1 = tension acting in the string attached with 4 kg block
T2 = tension acting in the string attached with 2 kg block

Here also we will form three equations according to the given conditions -
mg sin Ɵ - ma = T1 .............(1)

where ma = pseudo force
Ɵ = 45°
m = 4 kg

Now 2 kg block is moving up with acceleration a. so, we get
m´ g sin 45° + m´a = T2 .............(2)
where m´a = pseudo force
m´ = 2 kg

Now we are going to solve third equation. we know that the pulley is also rotating about its own axis due to difference in the tension of strings on both sides. so, we get
(T1 - T2)r = Iɑ where ɑ = angular acceleration = a/r
where a = linear acceleration
so, we get
(T1-T2) = Ia/r² ...........(3)

so, solving these three equation we can calculate the value of acceleration a.

Dear Himanshu,
In question 40,
there is a rod of 200 g connected to the ceiling through the strings attached to the ends of the rod. A mass of 20 g placed on the rod at point 70 cm from the left end.
Let that point be G and the weight (.2g) is acting at the middle of the rod at .5 m from the ends, let this point is C.
Let
T1 = tension in the left string
T2 = tension in the right string
we will have to two equations to calculate T1 and T2
First equation

T1 + T2 = mg + (m1)g
where m = 200g
m1 = 20 g
This is so because weight is acting downwards which will be balanced by the tension T1 and T2 which are acting upwards.

Second equation

A-----------C------G----------B
Here AB = rod = 1 m
AC = 0.5 m
CG = .2 m
GB = 0.3 m
AG = 0.7 m

To form this equation we will make the use of torque equation.
we know that the body is not rotating which means that sum of all the torques will be zero.
so, let us calculate the torque about point G(the point where 20 g is kept).
T1 x AG - T2 x GB - .2g x CG
T1x 0.7 - T2 x 0.3 - 0.2g x .2 = 0
so, we have two equations now and through this we will calculate T1 and T2.

Dear Himanshu,
In question number 41
it is given that a ladder is resting against the wall at an angle of 37˚ with the vertical wall.
The electrician is resting at a distance of 8m from one end.
Now there are two weights acting on the ladder.
first is the weight of electrician( 60g) at 8m from the downward end.
second is the weight of the rod( 16g) at the center at 5 m from the ends.
Now due to these forces there are reaction forces on the ladder. These are
R1 = this is the reaction force from the vertical wall
R2 = this is the reaction force from the horizontal wall
These forces are always perpendicular to the contacting surface i.e walls.
Friction force = µR2 as shown in the diagram
due to the wight of the electrician the ladder will try to slip in the outward direction or right direction.
so, friction force is acting in the left direction.
By the diagram given in the solution we can say that
R2 = (16+60)g
Now calculating R1
we know that ladder is not rotating and the sum of torque about any point on the rod will be zero.
so, we calculate torque about R2 or the end of rod where R2 is acting.
through this we have calculated R1 as given in the solution.

Now to calculate coefficient of friction.
we have kept friction force = R1 as shown in the diagram and calculated µ.

Dear Himanshu,
In question number 45 it is given that the rod is resting on a smooth roller and making as angle Ɵ
with the horizontal.
Now here you need to see the direction of the reaction forces on the rod.
Here two reactions are there. These are-
R1 = this is the reaction force acting due to the roller on the rod.
R2 = this reaction force is acting at the end of rod due to base.
Now direction R2 is simply perpendicular to the base. But you will face problem in calculating the direction of R1.
Earlier i told you that the reaction force is always perpendicular the contacting surface. we will apply this here also.

We know that the rod is resting on the rod. Here rod is acting as a tangent to the roller.
And we also know that the tangent passes through the point on a circle. So, here a point on a roller is contacting surface. Force on that point should pass through the radius and we know the fact that the line passing though the radius is always perpendicular to the tangent. That’s why the reaction R1 is perpendicular to the rod.
After this we resolved R1 in two directions. These are R1 cos Ɵ and R1 sin Ɵ as shown in the diagram.
Now we simply keep R1 cos Ɵ = R2
R1 sin Ɵ = friction force
Now solving these equation we get the answer.
We are sorry for delaying your answer.

Dear Rajat,
Let us again see the concept of friction. we know that friction friction opposes the relative motion between the two surface. Here try to understand the meaning of relative motion. In simple words we can say that relative motion only occurs when there is skidding of one surface over the other.
In rolling there is no skidding so, if the body is rolling purely on the surface then there will be no friction force and the object will move forever. But if the object is moving on a rough surface then there will skidding as well as some rolling due to which friction force will start acting and object will slow down.
Ideally there is no concept like pure rolling.

Dear Rajat,
In this question you need to visualize the diagram. please visit the link "http://padhaichannel.com/main/rolling-motion-along-an-inclined-plane/". I am going to explain this question according to this diagram only. There is an inclined plane and on that we have kept a sphere. we know that due to its weight it will try to come down. so, we have kept an obstacle of height h in front of it to stop it from moving down. Now you need to imagine that the ball will not slide but it has the tendency to rotate about the upper most point of the obstacle.Let that uppermost point be G. Now we resolve the weight in two directions. These are
1. mg cos θ - its direction is along the inclined plane.
2. mg sin θ - its direction is perpendicular to the inclined plane.
The other forces which are acting are -
1. Normal force(N) = this force is acting opposite to mg sin θ and is balancing it.
2. friction force(f) = you need to imagine the direction of this force. if there is an obstacle and if the sphere needs to overcome that obstacle then sphere will rotate about the uppermost point and will over come the obstacle. now according to the given diagram when the sphere starts rotating then at that instant its lowermost point which is touching the plane is moving towards right. so, to resist that motion the friction force will act towards left. Here f = mg cos θ
3. reaction force due to obstacle (R)= this force is resisting the sphere to move down and it is acting at the uppermost point of the obstacle about which the sphere is rotating.
Now we will apply the torque equation about the uppermost point G.
to stop the sphere from rotating,
f x h - mg sin θ(R - h) > 0
(mg cos θ)h > mg sin θ(R - h)
solving this we get h > mg sin θ/(mg sin θ + mg cos θ)
so. minimum h = mg sin θ/(mg sin θ + mg cos θ)

Dear HImanshi,
In this question we have just applied the formula
angular momentum = Iw
where I = moment of inertia
w =angular velocity
Here there are two masses m1 and m2 having distance r between them.
so, the center of mass of the system will lie at
r1 = (m2)r/(m1 +m2)
where r1 = distance between m1 and center of mass
r2 = (m1)r/(m1 +m2)
where r2 = distance between m2 and center of mass
I1 = moment of inertia of m1 = m1(r1)²
I2 = moment of inertia of m2 = m2(r2)²
total angular momentum = I1 w + I2 w ..........1

Now we put the values in eq 1 and rest is done in the solutions

Dear Prateek,
Its not always the case. You would be thinking that concept of walking that we walk with the help of friction. Yes friction helps in the movement but its not always the case. You just need to see that if the force is acting in any direction then the object will move in that direction until and unless any other force is canceling the above force.

Dear Manju,
In this question we have to find the moment of inertia of square about the diagonal.
So, please the diagram given in the solution. I will explain according to that diagram.
First we have calculated the moment of inertia about xx = ma²/12
Now we know that I(zz) = I(xx) + I(yy)
perpendicular axis theorem.
Now I(xx) = I(yy)
I(zz) = 2 I(xx) = ma²/6
Now we can also write I(zz) = I(x'x') + I(y'y')
where x'x' and y'y' are the diagonals and are perpendicular to each other and z axis.
I(x'x') = I(y'y')
Now I(zz) = 2 I(x'x')
I(x'x') = ma²/12

yes dear, you are right to roll a spherical object you need friction but if sphere is completely round and mass is equally distributed so that center of mass lies exactly at the center of sphere
the friction required to roll the sphere is very very small as it can be neglected.
also in this case,before strike of cue the torque is zero
and torque does not relate with friction

Sir in the last worked out example of rotational motion, how can we conserve linear momentum even though friction is present between sphere and ground...can we solve it by conserving angular momentum along the point of contact bt. sphere and ground ??

if the friction was prominent enough then the ball would never retain its rotation in clockwise direction
so friction is negligible

Q18
as density increases from A to B then mass would also increase from A to B
thus as rotation needs lesser force if more mass is near center of mass
so at b more mass though more weight will be concentrated thus clamping at B and applying force at A would be easier. . . that means lesser force would be needed

well in case tal buildings are in order of Km like burj khalifa or much more than that as radius of earth is 3600km
then mass of earth will be shifted outwards slightly so rotation of earth will slow down very slightly
so as it will take slightly more time for one rotation so time duration of day and night both will increase a very slightly

if equal torque is appplied on both discs
as M.I. of A is lesser so for same torque applied disc A will have faster rotation.
as M.I. of B is 16 times as of A
so A will have 16 times more rotation
thus even though parameter of A is 1/4th of B velocity at the rim wouldbe stil approximately 4 times as of B
hence Va>Vb

please read the line that "the torque of force about a line is independent
of the choice of origin as long as it is chosen on the line". so, in order to solve, choose the distance which is shortest and perpendicular to the force. it is not compulsary that it should start from origin. but it should not go beyond origin

Please explain the direction of friction acting on a rolling sphere when:
1) it rolls down the inclined plane
2) it rolls up the inclined plane

& consider a case when a sphere is rolling on a horizontal surface . We make a point on it using a pen. Then:
1) acceleration of that point ( centipedal, tangential, its direction, it remains constant or changes with time, is its magnitude constant?)
2) velocity of that point ( similar arguments)

i have seen these type of questions in almost every jee adv sample paper but could not find a satisfactory explaination....u can only help me..

Dear Rajat,
whenever we try to find to direction of friction. Always try to see the tendency of the object to slide and skid because sliding and skiding are the form of relative motion.
now when the sphere is rolling down the plane so it has the tendency to skid down the plane due to its weight. so, friction is acting upward.

Now when the sphere is going upward again the friction will act upward because still it has the tendency to skid backward or you can also understand by the example of walking. you know that when we walk we apply force in the backward direction and friction force pushes us forward. so, when the sphere will move up the plane you will see that at the point of contact the sphere is trying to move the plane in the backward direction. so the plane will push the sphere in the forward direction by applying friction as a reaction force.

also i am able to understand ur 2nd question. please explain in detail.

in the second question we are observing a particular point on the rolling sphere...as the sphere rolls (on horizontal surface) how acceleration & the velocity of "that" point change with time...

Dear Raman,

let us take an example that we are rotating a stone which is tied with a string. now at some instant let the string breaks. Now you will see that it will go in the tangential direction. this means it was having some force which was having tangential direction. so this is all about tangential acceleration.

now lets come to centripetal acceleration. we know that if any object is moving in a circle than it must be having centripetal acceleration which always acts towards the center along the radius.

Now we get the net acceleration which the vector sum of centripetal and tangential acceleration.

there are three main forces acting on ladder,
on due to wall N1
one due to floor N2
and one due to friction.
N1 is equal to frictional force of ladder thus it doensot slides down.
N2 is equal to weight.
that is N1=f
N2=W
as torque at both ends are equal thus ladder doesnt slides
hense N1(hieght)=N2=(hieght of weight))
N1*(AO)=N2*(CB)
where W=10*9.8=98
so you can solve rest of the question.

Sir,
In Chapter 7, I am having a doubt in Question number 18.
The Question is : "A turn of radius 20m is bankedfor the vehicles going at a speed of 36km/h. If the coefficient of the static friction between the road and the tyre is 0.4, what are the possible speeds of vehicle so that it neither slips down nor skid up".

In this question it is asked to Find out the possible speeds of vehicle so that it neither slips down nor skid up. Here it is possible to find out The maximum velocity by using the formula (√(rg (μ+tanθ)/(1-μtanθ)). But in the HC verma Solve to find out the minimum velocity this formula has been used : √(rg (tanθ-μ)/(1+μtanθ)).
Will You plz tell me that how the second formula has been derived?
Before Seeing the solve I could not understand the way of finding the minimum velocity.
Plz Explain The derivation of the second formula.

22/11/2013 8:26am

dear,
que 37
Let us assume that
T1 = tension in left side string of the pulley.
T2 = tension in the right side string of the pulley
Also if the block is moving with acceleration (a) then the pulley will move down with (a/2) acceleration.
so, here we will just form three equations according to the given conditions -

we can see that tension T1 is acting on the block.
T1 = ma .............(1)

we can also see that due to difference in tension T1 and T2, the pulley will also rotate about its own axis.
(T2 - T1) = Iɑ where ɑ = angular acceleration

Now we are going to solve the third equation. we can see that the pulley is going down due to its weight(m´g) with acceleration a/2
where m´ = mass of the pulley. so, we get
m´g - m´a/2 = T1+T2
where m´a/2 = pseudo force and we know that pseudo force acts in the opposite direction of the motion. That's its sign is negative.
now we have just solved the three equations and calculated the value of acceleration

Sir, How did u arrive to the conclusion that his answer is correct..if this answer is correct . I thought at it ...and realized that he must have used the concept of centripetal force..and using concept of no slipping...also angular momentum conservation can not be done....in this case

Sir do reply ...is any above mentioned concept r wrong...

sir,
In a rotating body, a=alpha x r &v=wr. thus a divided by alpha=v/w. can you use the theorems of ratio & proportions to write (a + cx) /(a - cx) = (v+w)/(v - w). & if yes then why. if not then why?
where cx means alpha.

MY ANSWER IS NO BECAUSE WHENEVER WE ADD OR SUBTRACT 2 QUANTITIES ,THE UNITS OF BOTH THE QUANTITIES SHOULD BE SAME BUT HERE THE UNITS ARE NOT SAME

sir kindly explain question no.11 and 7 of objective 2
in question 11 i think that the sphere can not roll on the smooth horizontal and inclined surface since there is no friction to counter any type of motion...plzz explain

que 37
Let us assume that
T1 = tension in left side string of the pulley.
T2 = tension in the right side string of the pulley
Also if the block is moving with acceleration (a) then the pulley will move down with (a/2) acceleration.
so, here we will just form three equations according to the given conditions -

we can see that tension T1 is acting on the block.
T1 = ma .............(1)

we can also see that due to difference in tension T1 and T2, the pulley will also rotate about its own axis.
(T2 - T1) = Iɑ where ɑ = angular acceleration

Now we are going to solve the third equation. we can see that the pulley is going down due to its weight(m´g) with acceleration a/2
where m´ = mass of the pulley. so, we get
m´g - m´a/2 = T1+T2
where m´a/2 = pseudo force and we know that pseudo force acts in the opposite direction of the motion. That's its sign is negative.
now we have just solved the three equations and calculated the value of acceleration

DEAR ARCHIE
From the surface of earth reference the umbrella has a angular velocity
greater than that of the angular velocity of the earth reference on which a man is standing because the angular motion to the umberla
is caused by man so equating the two angular vel. we can get angular vel. imparted to the man

This happens because when the fat person tries to touch his toes , there is a change in the position of the COM of his body.
There is now an unbalanced torque due to his own weiight acting on him due to which he develops a tendency to fall.

why is force acting on dm due to gravity i.e its weight dm x g not considered in problem no 69

in question no. 21 i cannot understand why there wont be any torque because of mgcos theta

torque is r x f x sintheta,but angle between r and mg cos theta is 180,so no torque is there.

in a chain-plate beam balance that we usually see in markets , when an iteam of mass say M kg is placed in one plate , the beam balance falls on the side of weight. to check the weight the salesman put stone of mass M kg n this balances the plates at the same level.
The question is-what is the restoring force which brings the other plate to the level of the other plate?
all torques are balanced and there is no force couple.
what is the reason of this?

A person sitting firmly over a rotating stool has his arms streched.If he folds his arms, his angular momentum about the axis of rotation decreases.Explain

angular momentum is L=I x ANGULAR VELOCITY
so when the person folds his arms, the angular velocity decreases but moment of inertia remains same
thus the angular momentum decreases

in the 1st part of this question,we have calculated the torque due to the weight of the body
torque= r x f
=r x f x sin(theta)
here,r is taken from the centre where mg is acting,so r=6.5/2
f=mg
sin(theta)={1- (6/6.5)*2} *1/2
so calculate torque from this

Acc to me q no 37 ans should be (5g)/7.
i did it by assuming vel. a1 and a2 of pulley and block after which i could relate a1 and a2.
later i assumed tensions T1 and T2 and wrote eqns. for translational motion of block and pulley and also torque=I(alpha).
I got the mass of the pulley=5kg by I=m×rsquare
Please help me!
