5.1 DEFINITION OF CENTRE OF MASS Centre of mass: Every physical system has associated with it a certain point whose motion characterizes the motion of the whole system. When the system moves under some external forces than this point moves as if the entire mass of the system is concentrated at this point and also the external force is applied at his point of translational motion. This point is called the centre of mass of the system. Centre of mass of system of n point masses or n particles is that point about which moment of mass of the system is zero, it means that if about a particular origin the moment of mass of system of n point masses is zero, then that particular origin is the centre of mass of the system. The concept of centre of mass is a pure mathematical concept. If there are n particles having mass m1, m2 ….m n and are placed in space (x1, y1, z1), (x2, y2, z2) ……….(x n, y n, z n) then centre of mass of system is defined as (X, Y, Z) where = Y = and Z = where M = is the total mass of X the system. Locate the point with coordinates (X, Y, Z). This point is called the centre of mass of the given collection of the particles. If the position vector of the i th particle is ri, the centre of mass is defined to have the position vector Where M = m1 + m2 + ……….. + mn = where = i x cm + j y cm + k (z cm) This is equation for centre of mass of n point masses. Illustration 1: Three equal masses are situates at vertices of equilateral triangle as shown in figure. Find centre of mass of the system. Solution: Let m be the mass of three masses and XCM, YCM and ZCM be the centre of masses of along the X axis, Y axis and Z axis, then Hence coordinate of centre of mass is 5.2 CENTRE OF MASS OF CONTINUOUS BODIES If we consider the body to have continuous distribution of matter, the summation in the formula of centre of mass should be replaced by integration. If x, y, z are the coordinates of this small mass dm, we write the coordinates of the centre of mass as The integration is to be performed under proper limits so that as the integration variable goes through the limits, the elements cover the entire body. We illustrate the method with three examples. Illustration 2: Find centre of mass of a uniform straight rod of mass m and length l, Solution: Let M and L be the mass and the length of the rod respectively. Take the left end of the rod as the origin and the X–axis along the rod (figure). Consider an element of the rod between the positions A and B of the rod. Let the element be at a distance x from the centre O and its width be dx. So as x varies from 0 through L, the elements cover the entire rod. As the rod is uniform, the mass per unit length is M/L and hence the mass of the element is dm = (M/L) dx. The x–coordinate of the centre of mass of the rod is The y–coordinate is , Y = and similarly Z = 0. The centre of mass is at , i.e. at the middle

Take the left end of the rod as the origin and the X–axis along the rod (figure). Consider an element of the rod between the positions A and B of the rod.

It is assumed that no mass enters or leaves the system during its motion, so that M remains constant.

Illustration 3: Two particles A and B of mass 1 kg and 2 kg respectively are projected in the directions shown in figure with speeds uA = 200 m/s and uB = 50 m/s. Initially they wee 90 m apart. Find the maximum height attained by the centre of mass of the particles. Assume acceleration due to gravity to be constant. (g = 10 m/s2 ). Solution: Using mArA = mBrB Or (1)(rA) = (2)(rB) Or rA = 2rB … (i) And rA + rB = 90 m … (ii) Solving these two equations, we get rA = 60m and rB = 30m i.e., CM is at height 60m from the ground at time t = 0. 90m B A uB uA Further, A B A B CM A B m a m a a m m       = g = 10 m/s2 (downwards) As A B a a g     (downwards) A B A B CM A B m u m u u m m             1 200 2 50 100 m / s 1 2 3     (upwards) Let, h be the height attained by CM beyond 60 m.

So, P mv     The magnitude of linear momentum may be written as P = mv Or 2 2 2 2 1 P m v 2m mv 2mK 2         

This is called the law of conservation of linear momentum. The law may be extended to a system of particles or to the centre of mass of a system of particles. For example, for a system of particles it takes the form. If net force (or the vector sum of all the forces) on a system of particles is zero, the vector sum of linear momentum of all the particles remain conserved, or If 1 2 3 n F F F F ..... F 0            Then, 1 2 3 n P P P ..... P             = constant The same is the case for the centre of mass of a system of particles i.e., if CM CM F 0,P     = Constant Thus, the law of conservation of linear momentum can be applied to a single particle, to a system of particles or even to the centre of mass of the particles. Illustration 4: A man of mass m1 is standing on a platform of mass m2 kept on a smooth horizontal surface. The man starts moving on the platform with a velocity vr relative to the platform. Find the recoil velocity of platform. Solution: Absolute velocity of man = r    where  = recoil velocity of platform. Taking the platform and the man as a system, net external force on the system in horizontal direction is zero. The linear momentum of the system remains constant. Initially both the man and the platform were at rest. v vr - v Hence, from law of conservation of momentum 0 = m1 (vr – v) – m2v 1 r 1 2 m v v m m    IMPULSE Consider a constant force F  which acts for a time t on a body of mass m, thus, changing its velocity from u  to v  . Because the force is constant, the body will travel with travel with constant acceleration a  where F ma    and at v u      Hence, Ft v u m      Or Ft mv mu      The product of constant force F  and the time t for which it acts is called the impulse   J  of the force and this is equal to the change in linear momentum which it produces. Impulse  i J F P P P           t f Instantaneous Impulse: There are many occasions when a force acts for such a short time that the effect is instantaneous, e.g., a bat striking a ball. In such cases, although the magnitude of the force and the time for which it acts may each be unknown but the value of their product (i.e., impulse) can be known by measuring the initial and final momenta. Thus, we can write

Page PAGE 82 AIEEE Chapter - 5 Rotational Motion i J F P P P            dt f Regarding the impulse it is important to note that impulse applied to an object in a given time interval can also be calculated from the area under force–time (F – t) graph in the same time interval. Impulse momentum relation: The change in momentum of a particle during a time interval equals the impulse of the net force that acts on the particle during that interval. 2 1 J p p      (impulse – momentum relation) Illustration 5: A ball of mass m, travelling with velocity ˆ ˆ 2i 3j  receives an impulse – 3m î . What is the velocity of the ball immediately afterwards? Solution: Using f i J m(v v )      –3m î = m   f ˆ ˆ v 2i 3j        Or   f ˆ ˆ ˆ v 3i 2i 3j      Or f ˆ ˆ v i 3j     5.5 VARIABLE MASS In our discussion of the conservation of linear momentum, we have so far dealt with system whose mass remains constant. We now consider those systems whose mass is variable, i.e., those in which mass enters or leaves the system. A typical case is that of the rocket from which hot gases keep on escaping, thereby continuously decreasing its mass. In such problems you have nothing to do but apply a thrust force   t F  to the main mass in addition to the all other forces acting on it. This thrust force is given by, t rel dm F v dt          Here, rel v  is the velocity of the mass gained or mass ejected relative to the main mass. In case of rocket this is sometimes called the exhaust velocity of the gases. dm dt is the rate at which mass is increasing or decreasing. m - dm dm r v  v  v dv    system The expression for the thrust force can be derived from the conservation of linear momentum in the absence of any external forces on a system as follows : Suppose at some moment t = t mass of a body is m and its velocity is v  . After some time at t = t + dt its mass becomes (m = dm) and velocity becomes v dv    . The mass dm is ejected with relative velocity r v  , Absolute velocity of mass ‘dm’ is therefore   r v v dv      .

This phenomenon is called collision. During collision (i) an impulse (a large force for a relatively short time) acts on each colliding particle (ii) the total momentum of the particles remain conserved. The collision is infact a redistribution of total momentum of the particles. Physical interaction is not necessary for collision. Generally, the collisions are of two types: (1) Elastic collision (2) Inelastic collision 1. Elastic collision: A collision is said to be elastic if kinetic energy is also conserved along with the linear momentum. There is no loss or transformation of kinetic energy in this collision Consider two particles of masses m1 and m2 moving with velocities 1 u   and 2 u   respectively. They collide and their velocities after the collision become 1 v   and 2 v   respectively.

Thus in elastic collision, the relative velocity of approach of particles before collision is equal to the relative velocity with which the particles recedes after collision. i.e. the magnitude of relative velocity remains the same, but the direction is reversed.

Find the speeds of both bodies after the collision: Solution: By Conservation of momentum: (0.4  3) + 0 = 0.4v + 0.6V or v + 1.5V = 3 We know that: velocity of separation = –velocity of approach or –v + V = 3 We solve by adding the two equations to yield 2.5V = 6 V = 2.4 m/s v = –0.6 m/s 2. Inelastic collision: A collision in which the linear momentum is conserved, but a part of kinetic energy change into the other forms (such as heat, vibration, excitation energy etc) is called the inelastic collision. In other words, the kinetic energy is not conserved.(Actually there is no violation of the law of conservation of energy, but a part of the kinetic energy, changes into a useless form.) In this, the particles do not regain their shape and size completely after collision. Some fraction of mechanical energy is retained by the colliding particles in the form of deformation potential energy. However, in the absence of external forces, law of conservation of linear momentum still holds good. Let two particles of masses m1 and m2 moving with initial velocities 1 u   and 2 u   Collide and travel with velocities 1 v   and 2 v   respectively after the collision.

In general, 0 e 1   e = 0, for completely inelastic collision, as both the objects stick together. So, their separation speed is zero or e = 0. e = 1, for an elastic collision, as we can show that from equation (i) v2 – v1 = u1 – u2 … (iii) Or separation speed = approach speed Or e = 1 Let us now find the velocities of two particles after collision if they collide directly and the coefficient of restitution between them is given as e. v2 v1 Before Collision m2 m1 v2 ' v1 ' After Collision Applying conservation of linear momentum, ' ' 1 1 2 2 1 1 2 2 m v m v m v m v    … (iv) Further, separation speed = e (approach speed) or u1 – u2 = e (v2 – v1) … (v) Solving equations (iv) and (v) we get , ' 1 2 1 2 1 1 2 1 2 1 2 m em m em v v v m m m m                   … (vi) and ' 2 1 1 1 2 2 1 1 2 1 2 m em m em v v v m m m m                   … (vii) Illustration 8: A moving particle of mass m, makes a head–on collision with a particle of mass 2m, which is initially at rest. Show that the colliding particle loses (8/9) of its energy after collision. Solution: Let u be the initial velocity of particle of mass m and ν its velocity after the collision. Let V be the velocity of particle of mass 2m after the collision. From the principle of conservation of linear momentum, we have mu = mv + (2m) V Or u – v = 2 V … (i) The conservation of kinetic energy gives 1 2 mu2 = 1 2 mv2 + 1 2 (2m)V2 Or u2 – v2 = 2V2 … (ii) Or (u – v) (u + v) = 2V2 Using Eq.

We can divide also oblique collision in elastic, and inelastic collision. It is important to notice that momentum will conserve in each direction curing oblique collision also. When two bodies collide obliquely, their relative velocity resolved along their common normal after impact is in a constant ratio to their relative velocity before impact (resolved along common normal) and is in the opposite direction. 1 2 1 2 v cos v cos e u cos u cos           1 2 1 2 v cos v cos e u cos u cos         common normal u2 u1     v2 v1 Illustration 9: A ball of mass m moving at a speed v makes a head on collision with an identical ball at rest.

MOTION OF A RIGID BODY Translational: If a body moves such that its orientation does not change with respect to time then body is said to move in translational motion. ROTATION: If a body is rotating about the fix axis of rotation then its motion is known as pure rotational motion. MIX – MOTION: If a body moves such that its motion neither be pure rotational nor be pure translational then its motion is known as mix motion. 5.10 ANGULAR DISPLACEMENT
• 11. Page PAGE 82 AIEEE Chapter - 5 Rotational Motion Consider a rigid body undergoing rotation about an axis, perpendicular to the plane of the paper and passing through O. Suppose that A and B are any two particles of the rigid body at the position 1 while A′ and B′ are their subsequent locations when the body is at the position 2. Since the body undergoes rotation, OA = OA′ and OB = OB′ Further AB = A′B′, since the body is rigid. ⇒ ΔOAB ≅ ΔOA′B′(congruent) O A B B 2 1 A i.e. ∠ AOB = ∠A′OB′ Adding ∠ AOB′ to both sides of the above equation, we get ∠ BOB′ = ∠AOA′ = θ (say) This implies that in a given interval of time the angular displacements of all particles of the rigid body undergoing rotation are identical. Therefore, a single variable, viz. angular displacement (θ) can be used to describe the rotational motion of the rigid body. Angular displacement is not a vector quantity 5.11 ANGULAR VELOCITY() The rate of change of angular displacement with respect to time is known as angular velocity. Average angular velocity: The rate of change of angular displacement with respect to time is known as angular velocity.
