A solid cylinder of radius r rests on a horizontal plane. The height of its centre of percussion above the plane equals
2/3 r
4/3 r
3/2 r
8/5 r
The centre of percussion and axis of oscillation
act at centre of gravity of the body
lie apart a distance equal to radius of gyration
are interchangeable
are coincident
For a homogenous rod of length l suspended from the top, the centre of percussion lies at a distance
The centre of percussion is
point of suspension of a system
same as centre of gravity
point in a body about which it can rotate horizontally and oscillate under the influence of gravity
point of application of the resultant of all forces tending to cause the body rotate about a central axis.
Identify the wrong statement/statements
The time period of a bob of simple pendulum when made to oscillate in water instead of air will increase
When the length of a simple pendulum is increased by 2 percent, the time period will increase approximately by 1 percent
At some instant during the motion of a simple pendulum, a piece of mud equal to the mass of bob gets attached to it. That would result into a decrease in frequency of oscillation of the pendulum
A simple pendulum vibrating in an evacuated chamber will oscillate forever with the same amplitude and frequency.
