accleration of train = 4m/s2

bead will tend to move in horizontal direction due to seudo force = ma

normal reaction bw rod & bead = ma                  (a is accleration of train)

friction = u(N) = uma

weight = mg

net downward force = mg-uma

 m(net accleration) = m(g-ua)

     net accleration(A) = g - ua = 10-4*0.5 = 8m/s2

time taken by particle to reach the bottom is t

 s = At2/2                                (s=L =1m (given)

 1 = 8t2/2

t = 1/2 sec
