A Solid Sphere And A Hollow Sphere Of The Same Mass Have The Same Moment Of Inertia About Their Respective Diameters. The Ratio Of Their Radii Will Be(A) 1:2.(B) 5:4. (C) Sqrt 3 : Sqrt 5.(D) Sqrt 5 : Sqrt 3.

The correct answer is

We know:

The moment of inertia of solid sphere,\( I_{s} = \frac{2}{5}m_{s}R_{s}^{2} \)

The moment of inertia of hollow sphere,\( I_{H} = \frac{2}{3}m_{H}R_{H}^{2} \)

As given:

\( I_{s} = I_{H} = ? \) \( \Rightarrow \frac{2}{5}m_{s}R_{s}^{2} = \frac{2}{3}m_{H}R_{H}^{2} \) \( \Rightarrow \left ( \frac{R}{{R}’} \right ) = \frac{5}{3} \) \( \Rightarrow \frac{R}{{R}’} =\sqrt{5} :\sqrt{2} \)

Therefore, the ratio of their radii will be \( \sqrt{5} :\sqrt{2} \)
