Mass of a pendulam is 10-2 kg. It is lifted to 5×10-2 m and released. At the lowest point of its path an extra mass of 10-3  kg  is attached with the pendulam. Find the height travelled by the pendulam At the opposite side.

Dear Subhajit,

Ans:- The velocity at the bottommost point is=√(2*10*0.05) m/s=1m/s

From the conservation of momentum we get the final velocity at the bottommost point after the extra mass is hanged is


=0.91 m/s

Let the max height is =H m

Then H=0.91²/(2*10)

=4.1×10-² m

Find the distance travelled by the block. If the coefficient of friction vary as μ=cx. Please see image
Net Force on block = > F – uMg = Ma F = M[cgx + vdv/dx] vdv = Fdx/M – cgxdx integerating both sides, v^2/2 = Fx/M -cgx^2/2 v = root(2xF/M – cgx^2) v would be zero at last. hence, 2F/M – cgx ...
