Q. a particle of mass m is made to move with uniform speed v along the perimeter of a regular hexagon.What is the magnitude of the impulse applied at each corner of the hexagon  ?

Answers : (2)


consider a hexagon placed in X-Y plane whose bottom side is on x axis...

first u draw this figure ...

let its two vertex which are on x axis are A,B &  particle is moving from A to B along +ve x axis...

initial velocity of particle is U =vi

at point B its velocity changes in direction...its velocity makes an angel of 60 degree with x axis ..

final velocity is Vf= vcos60i + vsin60j=(i + sqrt3.j)v/2

change in velocity is = final velocity - initial velocity

                             =(v/2-v)i + sqrt3.vj/2

                             =-vi/2 + sqrt3.vj/2

impulse = mdv=mv/2 (-i + sqrt3j)

           I=  mv in magnitude

Are angular velocity, angular displacement and angular accleration vector?? if yes then what is its direction?? If the answer is explained then it will be approved
Except angular displacement all are vectors. As the angular displacement failed to obey the rules and laws of vector addition.

A body starting from rest moves with constant accleration. The ratio of distance covered by the body during the 5th second to that covered in 5 second is
Distance covered in n th second is given by s n = u + a/2(2n-1) where u – intial velocity and a – acceleration Distance covered in t seconds is given by s = ut + a/2(t 2 ) But, here u = 0...
