NEET Physics Mathematical Tools Questions Solved

Two discs of radii R and 2R are pressed against each other. Initially disc with radius R is rotating with angular velocity ω and other disc was stationary. Both disc are hinged at their respective centres and free to rotate about them.Moment of inertia of smaller is I and bigger disc is 2I about their respective axis of rotation. Find the angular velocity of the bigger disc after long time.

The only force which is producing any torque about the centre of first disk is friction. Let the disc rotates with angular velocity  as shown.


Now, ω1R = ω2×2R as the point in contact should have same velocity after stops.ω2=ω12Now, total angular impulse provide by the friction is equal to change in angular momentum of the discfRdt= I(ω-ω1)         and           f2Rdt= 2Iω2           2I(ω-ω1) = 2Iω2         ω1+ω2=ω             2ω2+ω2=ω            ω2=ω3
