A thin circular loop of radius R rotates about its vertical diameter with an angular frequency  . Show that a small bead on the wire loop remains at its lowermost point for (ω≤√ g/R  ). What is the angle made by the radius vector joining the center to the bead with the vertical downward direction for  (ω=√2g / R )? Neglect friction.

A 70 kg man stands in contact against the inner wall of a hollow cylindrical drum of radius 3 m rotating about its vertical axis with 200 rev/min. The coefficient of friction between the wall and his clothing is 0.15. What is the minimum rotational speed of the cylinder to enable the man to remain stuck to the wall (without falling) when the floor is suddenly removed?

You may have seen in a circus a motorcyclist driving in vertical loops inside a ‘death-well’ (a hollow spherical chamber with holes, so the spectators can watch from outside). Explain clearly why the motorcyclist does not drop down when he is at the uppermost point, with no support from below. What is the minimum speed required at the uppermost position to perform a vertical loop if the radius of the chamber is 25 m?

The rear side of a truck is open and a box of 40 kg mass is placed 5 m away from the open end as shown in Fig. 5.22. The coefficient of friction between the box and the surface below it is 0.15. On a straight road, the truck starts from rest and accelerates with  2 . ms-2 At what distance from the starting point does the box fall off the truck? (Ignore the size of the box).
