Question

# A uniform cylinder of length L and mass M having cross-sectional area A is suspended, with its length vertical, from a fixed point by a massless spring, such that it is half submerged in a liquid of density ρ at equilibrium position. When the cylinder is given a small downward push and released, it starts oscillating vertically with a small amplitude. If the force constant of the spring is 'k', the frequency of oscillations of the cylinder is?

Solution

## The correct option is C 12π (k+AρgM)1/2When the cylinder is pushed and released then, the force applied and the up thrust force will be equal and it can be written as, F=−(kx+Axρg) The acceleration is given as, a=−(kx+Axρg)M The frequency of the oscillation is given as, f=12π√∣∣ax∣∣ =12π√(k+Aρg)MHz Thus, the frequency of the oscillation of the cylinder is 12π√(k+Aρg)MHz.
