# Q. A rod of mass 'M' and length '2L' is suspended at its middle by a wire. It exhibits torsional oscillations; If two masses each of 'm' are attached at distance 'L/2' from its centre on both sides, it reduces the oscillation frequency by 20%. The value of ratio m/M is close to :

JEE Main JEE Main 2019

Solution:

## Frequency of torsonal oscillations is given by $f = \frac{k}{\sqrt{I}}$ $f_{1} = \frac{k}{\sqrt{\frac{M\left(2L\right)^{2}}{12}}}$ $f_{2} = \frac{k}{\sqrt{\frac{M\left(2L\right)^{2}}{12} +2m \left(\frac{L}{2}\right)^{2}}}$ $f_{2} = 0.8 f_{1}$ $\frac{m}{M} = 0.375$

## 1. An AC ammeter is used to measure current in a circuit. When a given direct current passes through the circuit, the AC ammeter reads 3 A. When another alternating current passes through the circuit, the AC ammeter reads 4 A. Then the reading of this ammeter, if DC and AC flow through the circuit simultaneously, is
