A meter scale is moving with uniform velocity. This implies:

 1 the force acting on the scale is zero, but a torque about the centre of mass can act on the scale. 2 the force acting on the scale is zero and the torque acting about the centre of mass of the scale is also zero. 3 the total force acting on it need not zero but the torque on it is zero. 4 neither the force nor the torque needs to be zero.

A particle of mass $$m$$ is moving in $$yz\text-$$plane with a uniform velocity $$v$$ with its trajectory running parallel to the $$+\text{ve}$$ $$y\text{-}$$axis and intersecting $$z\text{-}$$axis at $$z=a$$ in the figure. The change in its angular momentum about the origin as it bounces elastically from a wall at $$y$$ = constant is:

 1 $$mva~\hat e_{x}$$ 2 $$2mva~\hat e_{x}$$ 3 $$ymva~\hat e_{x}$$ 4 $$2ymva~\hat e_{x}$$

A merry-go-round, made of a ring-like platform of radius $$R$$ and mass $$M,$$ is revolving with the angular speed $\mathrm{\omega }$. A person of mass $$M$$ is standing on it. At one instant, the person jumps off the round, radially away from the centre of the round (as seen from the round). The speed of the round afterwards is:
1. $$\omega$$
2. $$2\omega$$
3. $$\omega/2$$
4. $$0$$
