There will be no effect on moment of inertia.

Question 11.
Is it essential to apply moment of couple to a rotating body? Explain with reason?
No, it is not essential to apply moment of couple to a rotating body because moment of couple only create angular acceleration.

Question 12.
It is easy to rotate a stone tied with a small string, than that of a longer. Why?
We know that, τ = Iω. If the string is long its moment of inertia will be greater and therefore greater torque will be required to rotate the stone. But, for small string less torque is required. Therefore, it is easy to rotate the stone with smaller string. Question 13.

τ = $$\frac{d L}{d t}$$

Question 14.
Write the relation between angular momentum and moment of inertia.
Angular momentum = Moment of inertia × Angular velocity.

Question 15.
Why the spokes are used in a wheel?
The spokes increases the distance of rim from the axis of rotation, hence its moment of inertia increases, which makes the rotation of wheel uniform and maintains its rotation.

Question 16.
The handle of a door is fixed away from the hinge. Why?
The handle is fixed away from the hinge because, it increases the perpendicular distance between the line of action of force and hinge. Hence, the torque increases.

Question 17.
The handle of a hand pump is made long, why?
Long handle increases the distance between the piston and the force, thus the torque increases, so less force is required to pump the water.

Question 18.
What will be the velocity of a point on a rotational axis in rotational motion?
The velocity of a point situated in rotation axis in rotational motion is zero.

Question 19.

It depends upon mass and the perpendicular distance from the axis of rotation. 3. It is constant for a body. 3. It changes with the position of axis and distribution of mass.

Question 20.
What is the physical importance of moment of inertia?
To rotate a body about an axis from the rest or to change angular velocity or angular acceleration of rotating body, a torque is applied, more the moment of inertia more will be the torque. This is the physical importance of moment of inertia. Question 21.
What do you mean by mechanical equilibrium of a system?
When the vector addition of total forces and vector addition of total moment of inertia is’ zero then the system is said to be in mechanical equilibrium.

Question 22.
Write the principle of moments.
According to this principle anti clockwise moments are taken positive and clockwise moments are taken negative when the body is in rotational equilibrium.

Question 23.
What is moment of couple? Write its SI unit and dimensional formula. Write the factor on which it depends. The product of a force and the perpendicular distance between the line of action of forces is called moment of couple.
Moment of couple = Force × Couple arm
Unit: Its S.I. unit is N × m.
The factor it depends are :

• Magnitude of force.
• Perpendicular distance between the line of action of forces.

Question 24.
What is the physical importance of angular momentum?
We know that,
Torque = Force × Perpendicular distance of line of action from the axis and
Angular momentum = Linear momentum × Perpendicular distance of particle from the
axis.
Hence, as the torque measures the tinning effect, similarly angular momentum measures the rotational motion.

Question 25.
What is geometrical meaning of angular momentum?
The angular momentum is equal to twice of the product of mass and areal velocity of a particle.
i.e., Angular momentum = 2 × Mass × Areal velocity

Question 26.
A dancer is rotating with stretched hands, when the closes her hands, her speed of rotation increases. Why?
We know that in the absence of external force the angular momentum of a rotating body is conserved and is equal to Iω. When the dancer closes her hands, her moment of inertia I decreases hence ω i.e., angular velocity increases.

Question 27.
When a rotating stone tied with a string is stoped, the string winds up in the hand fastly. Why?
When the string is started wind up in the hand, the length of string decreases and hence the moment of inertia of stone decreases. But, we know that angular momentum Iω is constant. As I decreases ω increases, therefore the string winds up very fast. Question 28.
Which factor depends on moment of inertia of the body that moves around a body.
We know I = Σmr2
Therefore moment of inertia,

• Is directly proportional to the mass.
• Is directly proportional to the square of distance from the axis of rotation.

Question 29.
Is centre of mass a reality?
No, it is only a mathematical concept.

Question 30.
It is difficult to open the door by pushing it or pulling it at the hinge. Why?
Because at the hinge the distance of the point of application of the force from the axis of rotation is negligible, so the torque is very small.

Question 31.
Why a helicopter must necessarily have two propellors?
If there were only one propellor in the helicopter, then it would have to turn in the opposite direction to conserve its angular momentum.

Question 1.
Define vector product of two vectors and give one example of vector product. Also write its properties. Let the angle between two vectors $$\vec{A} \text { and } \vec{B}$$ is θ, then their cross product is defined as
$$\vec{A} \times \vec{B}=A B \sin \theta \hat{n}$$
Where, $$\hat{n}$$ is unit vector perpendicular to the plane consisting vectors $$\vec{A} \text { and } \vec{B}$$ .
The direction of $$\vec{A} \times \overrightarrow{\vec{B}}$$ follows the screw rule, as shown in the figure.

Example : Let a force $$\vec{F}$$ is acting at a point whose position vector is $$\vec{r}$$ , then the torque $$\vec{τ}$$ is given by the cross product of $$\vec{F}$$ and $$\vec{r}$$
i.e.. $$\vec{\tau}=\vec{r} \times \vec{F}$$
Properties: I. Vector product of two vector is always a vector quantity.
2. It does not obey commutative law
$$\vec{a} \times \vec{b} \neq \vec{b} \times \vec{a}$$
3. It does not obey associative law
$$\vec{a} \times(\vec{b} \times \vec{c}) \neq(\vec{a} \times \vec{b}) \times \vec{c}$$
4. $$\vec{a} \times \vec{a}$$ = 0 (zero vector) Question 2.
Show that the area of the triangle contained between the vectors  $$\vec{a} \text { and } \vec{b}$$ is one half of the magnitude of a× b. Let the vectors $$\vec{a} \text { and } \vec{b}$$ represent the two adjacent sides of ΔAOB such that
OA =b, OB = a
Let angle between a and b be θ.
Such that∠AOB= θ
and also let h be the height of the triangle such that
h=AC
Now in right angled ΔOCA,
sinθ = $$\frac{A C}{O A}$$
or
AC=OA sinθ
or
h = b sinθ … (1)
We know that the area of the triangle AOB, is given b
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × base × height
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × OB x AC
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × a × h
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × a × b sinθ
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$absinθ …(2)
Also by the definition of cross-product of two vectors, we know that
a × b = ab sinθ$$\hat{n}$$
or
$$|a \times b|=|a b \sin \theta \hat{n}|$$
= ab sinθ$$|\hat{n}|$$
= ab sinθ ($$|\hat{n}|$$
= absinθ, ($$|\hat{n}|$$
= absinθ, (∵ ($$|\hat{n}|$$ = 1) …(3)
∴ From eqns. (2) and (3), we get
Area of ΔAOB = $$\frac{1}{2} \mid a \times b$$
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ [magnitude of a × b].

Question 3.

(i) Centre of sphere.
(ii) Mid-point of axis of symmetry of the cylinder i.e., its geometrical centre.
(iii) Centre of ring.
(iv) Point of intersection of diagonals i.e., at its geometrical centre.

No, in some cases, C.M. of a body like ring, hollow cylinder, hollow sphere and hollow cube etc. may lie outside.

Question 4.
Define work in rotational motion.
As work is define as product of force and displacement in direction of force in linear motion, same like that work done by a torque in rotational motion is define as product of torque and angular displacement.
Work W = τ.d.θ

Question 5.
Derive an expression for the angular momentum of a body in rotational motion.
Or
Prove that J = Iω
Consider a body which is made up number of particles of masses m1,m2,m3,…. situated at the distances r1,r2, r3 from the axis of rotation. If the linear velocities are
ν1, ν2, ν3,…. respectively, then
Linear momentum of m1 = m1ν1 = m1r1ω , (∵ ν = r ω)
and Angular momentum = m1r1ω x r1 = m1r12 ω
Similarly, angular momentum of m2,m3,…. will be m2r22 ω,m3r32 ω,…..
∴ Angular momentum of whole body = m1r12ω + m2r22 ω, + m3r32 ω, +….
or
J = ω (m1r12 +m2r22 +m3r32 +….)
= ωΣ mr2
or
J = ωI
∴ Angular momentum = Angular velocity × Moment of inertia. Question 6.
What do you understand by angular momentum? Establish the relation between angular momentum and rotational K.E.
Angular momentum : If a particle is moving about an axis, then the moment of linear momentum is called its angular momentum about that axis.
∴ Angular momentum = Linear momentum × Perpendicular distance of particle from the axis of rotation

Relation between angular momentum and rotational K.E.: We know that rotational kinetic energy (Ek) is given by the formula
Ek = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ Iω2 …(1)
But, Angular momentum, J = Iω
or
ω = $$\frac{J}{I}$$
Putting the value of ω in eqn. (1), we get
Ek = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ I$$\left(\frac{J}{I}\right)^{2}$$ = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ $$\frac{J^{2}}{I}$$
or
J2 =2I Ek
or
J = $$\sqrt{2 I E_{k}}$$ …(2)
Eqn. (2) is the required relation.
If angular momentum remains conserved, then $$\sqrt{2 I E_{k}}$$ lEk will be constant
or
2I Ek = Constant
or
Ek = $$\frac{\text { Constant }}{2 I}$$
or
Ek ∝ $$\frac{1}{I}$$

Question 7.
What is the law of conservation of angular momentum? Prove it.
Law of conservation of angular momentum: In the absence of external torque, the angular momentum of a system remains constant.
i.e., J = a constant
Then, Iω = a constant
Now, we know that rate of change of angular momentum is equal to the external torque
applied.
i.e., τ = $$\frac{d J}{d t}$$
If τ = 0
Then, $$\frac{d J}{d t}$$ = 0
or
J = a constant
or
J = Iω
If in two different conditions the moment of inertia of a body are I1 and I2and angular velocities are ω1and ω2respectively, then
I1ω1 = I2ω2

Question 8.
Prove that the rate of change of angular momentum is equal to the torque applied.
Or
Prove that τ = $$\frac{d J}{d t}$$
Let a torque τ is applied on a body of moment of inertia I, so that its angular
acceleration becomes α, then
τ = I.α ….(1)
But, α = $$\frac{d \omega}{d t}$$
∴ τ = I.$$\frac{d \omega}{d t}$$ …(2)
Also we have J = Iω
∴ $$\frac{d J}{d t}=\frac{d}{d t}$$ (Iω) = $$\frac{d \omega}{d t}$$
From eqn. (2), we get
Or
$$\frac{d J}{d t}$$ = Iω = τ [ from eqn .(1)]
Hence, rate of change of angular momentum is equal to the torque applied.

Question 9.
Derive an expression for the moment of inertia of a rigid body.
Or
Prove that I = Σ mr2. Let a body rotating about an axis XY supposing that the body is made up of number of particles of masses m1,m2,m3,…. situated at the distances r1,r2,r3, from the axis of rotation.
∴ The moment of inertia of the particles will be m1r12 , m2r22 , m3r32,
Hence, the moment of inertia of whole body,
I = m1r12 + m2r22 + m3r32 +
or
I = Σmr2
Where, Σ is the sign of summation. Question 10.
Compare the different derivatives in linear motion and rotational motion.
Different derivatives in linear and rotational motion :

Linear momentum p = m. ν 6. Angular momentum J = I.ω 7. Force F = $$\frac{d p }{d t}$$ 7. Torque τ = $$\frac{d J}{d t}=\frac{d}{d t}$$ 8. Kinetic energy = $$\frac{1}{2}$$mν2 8. Rotational kinetic energy = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ Iω2 9. Equation of a linear motion v = u + at s = ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2 ν2 = u2 + 2as. 9. Equation of angular motion ω = ω0 + αt θ = ω0t + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ αt2 ω2 = ω02 +2αθ

Question 11.
A planet is revolving around a sun in an elliptical orbit. How angular velocity and linear velocity get changes in the orbit?
(1) Since angular momentum L = mr2ω is constant. Therefore when planet go
far from sun r increases and hence co decreases and when planet go near to sun r decreases
and hence co increases.
(2) Since L = mνr constant. Therefore when planet go far from sun r increases and
hence ν decreases and when planet is close to sun r decreases and hence ν increases.
[∵ ν ∝$$\frac{1}{r}$$

Question 12.
A ladder is at rest against a wall. Is the ladder more likely to slip when a person climb up why?
It is more likely to slip when a man climb upward in the ladder because due to the fact that the weight of the man will provide an extra torque for the slipping of the ladder.

Question 13.
What do you understand by angular momentum? Derive its’s expression.
If a particle is moving about an axis, then the moment of linear momentum is called its angular momentum about that axis.
Angular momentum = Linear momentum × Perpendicular distance of particle from the axis of rotation.
Let’ m’ be the mass of a particle P whose position vector be V with respect to origin
O and its linear momentum be $$\vec{p}(=m \vec{v})$$ and angular momentum be $$\vec{J}=(\vec{p} \times \overrightarrow{O N})$$ = pr sinθ
In right angled Δ OPN, ON = OP sinθ =r sinθ
or
J=rp sinθ
Where θ is angle between $$\vec{r} \text { and } \vec{p}$$
or
$$\vec{J}=\vec{r} \times \vec{p}$$
or
$$\vec{J}=\vec{r} \times(m \cdot \vec{v})$$
or
$$\vec{J}=m(\vec{r} \times \vec{v})$$

Question 14.
What do you understand by angular acceleration? Prove that :a = r × α.
Angular acceleration : Rate of change in angular velocity is defined as angular acceleration.
Angular acceleration = $$$\frac{\text { Angular velocity }}{\text { Time interval }}$$$
If Δω be the change in angular velocity in time Δt, then average angular acceleration = $$\frac{\Delta \omega}{\Delta t}$$
or instantaneous angular acceleration α = $$\lim _{\Delta t \rightarrow 0} \frac{\Delta \omega}{\Delta t}=\frac{d \omega}{d t}$$
But ν = rω .where r is the distance of particle, from axis of rotation,
∴ Integration both side, we get
$$\frac{d ν}{d t}$$ = r $$\frac{d ω }{d t}$$ = r.α Question 15.
Prove that the radius of gyration of a body is equal to the root mean square of>the distances of particles from the axis of rotation.
Expression for the radius of gyration : Let the mass of a body is M and its radius of gyration is K,
Moment of inertia of the body
∴ I = MK2
Also I = Σmr2
∴ MK2 = Σmr2
or
MK2 = m1 r12 + m2r22 + m3r3 2 +….
If m1 = m2 = m3 =….= m (let), then
MK2 = mr12 +mr22 +mr32 + ……
MK2 = m(r12 + r22 + r3 2 + …..)
But M = m × N(where N is number of particles)
∴ mNK2 = m(r12 + r22 + r3 2 + …..)
or
K2 = $$\frac{r_{1}^{2}+r_{2}^{2}+r_{3}^{2}+\ldots}{N}$$
∴ K = $$\sqrt{\frac{r_{1}^{2}+r_{2}^{2}+r_{3}^{2}+\ldots}{N}}$$
Hence, Radius of gyration = r.m.s. of distance of particle from the axis of rotation. Question 16.
Derive an expression for the K. E. of a rotation.

Let a body is rotating about an axis XY, with an angular velocity ω. The body consists of number of particle and angular velocity of each particel will be same. But the distances of all the particles are different, therefore each particle will have different linear velocity.
Let the distances of the particles of masses m1m2m3are r1, r2, r3,…. and their
linear velocities are v1 v2, v3,…. respectively.
Then, K.E. of particles will be System of Particles and Rotational Class 11 Important Questions Long Answer Type

Question 1.
State perpendicular axes theorem and prove it. Is it applied to every body?
Or
State theorem of perpendicular axis of moment of inertia and prove it.
Perpendicular axes theorem :
According to this theorem. The moment of inertia of a plane lamina about an axis perpendicular to its plane is equal to the sum of the moment of inertia of the body about two mutually perpendicular axes lying in the plane of the body and intersecting at the point through which the perpendicular axis passes.

Proof:
Let P be a particle on a lamina, at distances x,y and r from the axes of X, Y and Z and OP = r.
If the mass of the particle is m, then
M.I. about X – axis, Ix = Σ my2
M.I. about y – axis, Iy = Σ mx2
and M.I. about Z-axis, Iz = Σ mr2
From right angle Δ PMO,
r2 = x2 + y2
∴ mr2 = mx2 + my2
or
Σmr2 = Σmx2 + Σmy2
or
Iz = Ix + Iy This threorem is true for all types of bodies. The solid body is divided into laminas and the theorem can be applied. Question 2.
State theorem of parallel axes and prove it. Is it applicable for all the bddies?
Parallel axes theorem :
According to this theorem, the moment of inertia of a body about the given axis is equal to the sum of the moment of inertia of the body about an axis through the centre of mass and parallel to the given axis and the product of the mass of the body and the square of distance between the two axes. Proof:
Let CD is the axis passing through centre of mass of the body and AB is the axes parallel to CD at a distance a.
Consider a particle P of mass m at a distance x from CD.
∴ M.I. of P about axis AB = m(a + x)2
∴ M.I. of whole body about AB
I =Σm(a+ x)2
or
I = Σm(a2 + 2ax + x2)
or
I = Σma2 + Σ2amx + Σmx2
or
I = a2Σm + 2.a Σmx + Σmx2
But, Σmx2 = Icm and Σm = M.
∴ Now, Σx is the moment of body about the axis passing through centre of mass. .•.
∴ Σmx = 0
Hence, by eqn. (1)
I = a2M + 0 + Icm
or
I = Icm + Ma2
This theorem is applicable for all the bodies.

Question 3.
Write the equations of rotational motion and derive them.
If the initial angular velocity is ω0, angular acceleration is α and after t sec. the displacement is θ and angular velocity becomes ω, then equations are :
(i) ω = ω0 + αt
(ii) θ = ω0t + $$\frac{1}{2}$$αt2
(iii) ω2 = ω02 +2αθ

(i) Derivation of first equation :ω = ω0 + αt
By the definition of angular acceleration,
α = $$=\frac{\omega-\omega_{0}}{t}$$
or
ω – 0 = αt
∴ ω = ω0 + αt

(ii) Derivation of second equation: θ = ω0t + $$\frac{1}{2}$$αt2
The body is rotating with uniform angular acceleration, therefore
Average angular velocity = $$\frac{\omega+\omega_{0}}{2}$$
But, from the first eqn., ω = ω0 + αt
∴ Average angular velocity = $$\frac{\omega_{0}+\alpha t+\omega_{0}}{2}$$
= ω0 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$αt
Now, Angular displacement = Average angular velocity × Time
θ = $$\left(\omega_{0}+\frac{1}{2} \alpha t\right)$$ × t
or
θ = ω0t +$$\frac{1}{2}$$ αt2

(iii) Derivation of third equation : ω2 = ω02 + 2αθ
Now, by first equation, we have
ω = ω0 + αt
Squaring both the sides, we get
ω2 = ( ω0 + αt)2
or
ω2 = ω02 + 2ω0αt + α2t2
or
ω2 = ω02 + 2α$$\left(\omega_{0} t+\frac{1}{2} \alpha t^{2}\right)$$
But, from second eqn., we have
ω0t + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2 = θ
∴ ω2 = ω02+ 2 α θ

Question 4.

When the body is rolling over any surface, its kinetic energy is the sum of translatory kinetic energy and rotatory kinetic energy. The above formula is applicable for cylinder, disc and sphere.

Solution:
Given : M= 2 kg, R = 0.5 m
(i) M.I. along its geometrical axis
I = MR2 = 2 × (0.5)2
= 2 × (0.25)
= 0.5 kg m2.

(ii) M.I. along diameter
Id = $$\frac{1}{2}$$I = $$\frac{1}{2}$$MR2
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$.2 × (0.5 )2
= (0.5)2 = 0.25 kgm2

(iii) M.I. in tangential direction on its circumference
IT =Id + Ma2
= $$\frac{M R^{2}}{2}$$ + MR2 = $$\frac{3}{2}$$ MR2
= $$\frac{3}{2}$$.2 × (0.5)2
= 3 × 0.25 =0.75 kgm2. Question 11.
The mass of a circular ring is 2 kg and its radius is 2m. The speed of its centre of mass is 20 cm × s-1 Calculate the K.E. of rotation of ring. (M. I. of ring = MR2)
Solution:
Given : r = 2 m,M = 2kg,ν = 20 cm × s-1 = 20 × 10 ms-1.
Total K.E. = $$\frac{1}{2} I \omega^{2}+\frac{1}{2} M v^{2}$$
$$=\frac{1}{2} M r^{2} \frac{v^{2}}{r^{2}}+\frac{1}{2} M v^{2}$$
$$=\frac{1}{2} M v^{2}+\frac{1}{2} M v^{2}$$ = Mν2
= 2 × (20 × 10-2 )2 = 8 × 10-2 joule.

Question 12.

Solution:
Given : Frequency n = 6 revolution/sec, t = 12 sec, ω = 0
and ω0 = 2πn = 12π rad/sec
By the formula ω = ω0 + α.t, we get
0 = 12π – α × 12
or
α = $$\frac{12 \pi}{12}$$ = π
or

Question 13.
A man is standing on a rotating table with hands stretched, the moment of inertia is 50 kg m2 and angular velocity is 3 rad/s. Now, the man closes his hands thus the moment of inertia becomes 30 kg m2. Calculate the angular velocity.
Soution:
Given: I1=50kgm2, ω1 =3rad × s-1, I2=30kgm2.
We have, I1 ω1 = I2 ω2
∴ ω2 = $$\frac{I_{1} \omega_{1}}{I_{2}}$$
or
ω2 = $$\frac{50 \times 3}{30}$$ = 5rad s-1

Question 14.
If the diameter of the earth reduces to half of it, then what will be the duration of the day?
Solution:
We know I1 ω1 = I2 ω2
or
$$\frac{2}{5} M R^{2} \times \frac{2 \pi}{T_{1}}=\frac{2}{5}\left(\frac{R}{2}\right)^{2} M \times \frac{2 \pi}{T_{2}}$$
∴ $$\frac{1}{T_{1}}=\frac{1}{4 T_{2}}$$
or
T2 = $$\frac{T_{1}}{4}=\frac{24}{4}$$ = 6 hr

Question 16.
If the radius of revolving disc is made half keeping mass same, then what will be its angular velocity?
Solution:
From = I1 ω1 = I2 ω2
Or
MR2ω1 = $$\left(\frac{R}{2}\right)^{2}$$M ω2
∴ ω2 = 4ω1
i.e., Angular velocity will become 4 times of the earlier.

Question 17.
Angular momentum of a body changes from 220 kg m2 to 340 kg m2 in 10 sec. Find out the torque acting on it.
Solution:
Since τ = $$\frac{d J}{d t}$$
∴ τ = $$\frac{340-220}{10}=\frac{120}{10}$$
τ = 12 N-m.

Question 18.
The mass of a fly-wheel is 25 kg and its radius is 0.2 m. How much force
will be applied in tangential direction to produce angular acceleration of 2 rad × s-2?
Solution:
Given : M = 25 kg, R = 0.2 m, α = 2 rad × s-2, d = 0.2m.
Now,
I = MR2
= 25 × (0.2 )2 = 1 kgm
Again, τ =I.α
= 1 × 2=2 N-m
Also, τ=F × d
∴ F = $$\frac{\tau}{d}$$
= $$\frac{2}{0 \cdot 2}$$
= 10N Question 19.
A ball of mass 1 kg is tied at one end of a 20 cm long string and it is rotated in horizontal phase in such a way that it revolves 8 revolution per second. Find out the following :
(i) Ahgular velocity,
(ii) Linear velocity,
(iii) Moment of inertia along the finger of hand,
(iv) Angular momentum.
Solution:
Given : r = 20cm =20 × 10-2m, m= 1 kg, υ =8rev/sec

(i) Angular velocity ω = 2πυ
or
ω = 2π × 8 = 16π rad/sec.

(ii) Linear velocity v = r.ω
or
ν = 20 × 10-2 × 16π
ν = 3.2π m/s.

(iii) Moment of inertia I = mr2
or
I = 1 × (20 × 10-2)2
or
I = 0.04 kg m2.

(iv) Angular momentum J = Iω
or
J = 0.04 × 16π
= 0.64π kg m2/sec.

Question 20.
A ball tied with a string takes 4 second for one revolution rotating in cicular path. If the radius of the circular path is made half, then what will be the time taken by the ball to complete one revolution.
Solution:
By the laws of conservation of momentum
= I1 ω1 = I2 ω2
Let the mass of the ball be ‘wi’ and radius be ‘r’.
Then, I1 = mr2 System of Particles and Rotational Class 11 Important Questions Objective Type
