A square of side 4 units is divided into four equal squares. the square portion ABCH is removed and placed over HCDE. What is the new centre of mass of the system. The orginal body thickness and density is uniform

6 years ago


Answers : (1)


Dear M.Sai




mass is not moved along the x axix so for new center of mass x co ordinate will remain same as earlier

and for y co ordinate of new center of mass

let mass of each part is m ,center of mass of each part of square  lies at their center

length of each side of small square is 2 unit


Y= [ m*1 +m*(-1) +m*(-1) +m*(-1)]/(m+m+m+m)


so new center of mass (0,-1/2)

If a cycle wheel of radius 4 m completes one revolution in two seconds, then acceleration of a point on the cycle wheel will be-(1)π^2m/s^2(2)2π^2m/s^2(3)4π^2m/s^2(4)8π^2m/s^2
angular velocity would be: w = theta/time = 2*pi/2 = pi rad accln. = w^R = > pi^2 * 4 = 4*pi^2 m/s^2.

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.
