Question

# One end of a massless spring of constant 100 N/m and natural length 0.5 m is fixed and the other end is connected to a particle of mass 0.5 kg lying on a frictionless horizontal table. The spring remains horizontal. If the mass is made to rotate at angular velocity of 2 rad/s, then elongation of spring is

A
0.1 m
B
10 cm
C
1 cm
D
0.01 cm

Solution

## The correct option is C 1 cmCentrifugal force is balanced by spring force, thus,$$kx=m{ \omega }^{ 2 }\left( l+x \right) \\ \Rightarrow x=\dfrac { m{ \omega }^{ 2 }l }{ k-m{ \omega }^{ 2 } } =0.01m=1cm$$Physics
