Question

# A meter stick of mass $$400$$ gm is pivoted at one end and displaced through an angle $$60$$ from vertical The increase in its angular speed is:-

Solution

## We know initial potential energy $${E}_{P1}=mg\dfrac{h}{2}$$ ---------(A)Given m=400 g=.4 kg and h=1 m and g=10$$m/{s}^{2}$$Putting the above values in A we get $${E}_{P1}=0.4\times 10\dfrac{1}{2}=2J$$Now when the stick is displaced with an angle $${60}^{0}$$Potential Energy $${E}_{P2}=mg\dfrac{h}{2}\cos{60}^{0}$$$${E}_{P2}=0.4\times 10\times \dfrac{1}{2} \times \dfrac{1}{2}=1 J$$Thus change in potential energy $$=2-1$$$$=1 J$$  Physics
