Q. No.

(1)- (a) How can you obtain the final momentum of a particle which is moving with a velocity

(b) Two bodies of 8 kg and 6 kg respectively move with velocities as shown in figure below.

Q. No.(2) A double pendulum, as shown in the figure below, oscillates in the XY plane. At the instant
shown 1= 2 rad/sec counter- clockwise and 2= 3 rad/sec counter- clockwise. What is

instant if m1=m2= 1 kg? Note that the lower pendulum is connected to mass m1 by a pin joint and is

(b) A 15 kg slender rod AB is 1.5 m long and is pivoted about a point O which is 0.3 m from end B.
The other end is pressed against a spring of constant K= 300 KN/m until the spring is compressed 25
mm. The rod is then in a horizontal position. If the rod is released form this position, determine its

A rectangular plate of mass 20 kg is suspended from pins A and B as shown in figure. If pin

i) the angular acceleration of the plate,
ii) the components of the reaction at pin A, immediately after pin B has been removed.

(1) A 10-kg block A is released from rest 2 m above the 5-kg plate P, which can slide freely
along the smooth vertical guides BC and DE. Determine the velocity of the block and plate

Also, find the maximum compression of the spring due to impact. The spring has an
unstretched length of 600 mm.

horizontal plane with the velocities shown, determine their speeds just after impact. The
coefficient of restitution between the disks is e = 0.6

(a) the angular velocity of the connecting rod BD,
(b) the velocity of the piston P.

(3) A 109 kg block is suspended from an inextensible cable which is wrapped around a drum of 380
mm radius rigidly attached to a flywheel. The drum and flywheel have a combined centroidal
moment of inertia = 1.45 kg-m
. At the instant shown, the velocity of the block is 1.83 m/s directed
downward. Knowing that the bearing at A is poorly lubricated and that the bearing friction is
equivalent to a couple M of magnitude 81.4 N-m, determine the velocity of the block after it has
moved 1.22 m downward.

A slender 4-kg rod can rotate in a vertical plane about a pivot at B. A spring of constant k = 400 N/m

rod is released from rest in the position shown, determine its angular velocity after it has rotated
through 90
