Question 13:

(x) Choose the correct alternative and explain the reason behind your choice

When a disc rotates with uniform angular velocity, which of the following is not true?

(i) The sense of rotation remains same

(ii) The orientation of axis of rotation remains same

(iii) The speed of rotation is non-zero and remains same

(iv) The angular acceleration is non-zero and remains same.

(y) Choose the correct alternatives and mention the reason behind your choices

The net external torque on a system of particles about an axis is zero. Which of the following are compatible with it?

(a) The forces may be acting radially from a point on the axis

(b) The forces may be acting on the axis of rotation

(c) The forces may be acting parallel to the axis of rotation

(d) The torque caused by some forces may be equal and opposite to that caused by other forces.

Question 14:

The vector sum of a system of non-collinear forces acting on a rigid body is given to be non-zero. If the vector sum of all the torques due to the system of forces about a certain point is found to be zero, does this mean that it is necessarily zero about any arbitrary point?
