Q5.12 A bob of mass 0.1 kg hung from the ceiling of a room by a string 2 m long is set into oscillation. The speed of the bob at its mean position is1ms^{-1}. What is the trajectory of the bob if the string is cut when the bob is (a) at one of its extreme positions

Answers (1)


At the extreme positions, the velocity of the bob will become zero for a moment. So if we cut the string at this time, then Bob will fall vertically downward due to gravity.
