Suppose we tightly hold a branch of a tree, then shake it and stop suddendly. The leaves may get detached from the branch because of the_____.
static inertia of the leaves
motional inertial of the branches
static inertia of the braches
motional inertia of the leaves
The correct options are
A static inertia of the leaves
D motional inertia of the leaves
When we suddenly start shaking the branches, the static inertia of the leaves tend to stay in a motionless state, and as a result, they detach from the branches.
Also, when we stop shaking or change the direction of shaking, the leaves in motion want to stay in movement, and they separate from the branches.
