    Question of Rotational motion

    Got it! Since their is no translational motion, the normal reaction from ground+ frictional on the left wall= mg. And, friction on ground = Normal reaction from the left wall. Done!

    Question of Rotational motion

    Oh wait, maybe the normal reaction at ground isn't mg. I have had an idea, let me try it out first.

    Question of Rotational motion

    Ignore the minus sign behind mgk. Their has to be some involvement of centripetal force in friction, but I am not sure how, because it is directed towards the center, and not towards the ground. I know I have probably done it very wrong. I'm sorry if it's too bad.

    Question of Rotational motion

    I am unable to find the frictional force on the left wall.

    Question of Rotational motion

    Hello, I'm stuck in this rotational motion problem (advanced high school level). Source: Problems in General Physics- IE Irodov My attempt(s): First I tried using work done by the moment of friction (mgkR) and equated it with change in KE. I got the answer as ## \frac{R (\omega_0)^2}{8 \pi...

    You can simplify the formulas of n=odd. For n and m both odd the formula can be simplified to ## \frac{mn+1}{2} ## . For n odd, m even, the formula can be simplified to ## \frac{mn}{2} ## . This way both the cases of n feel interconnected.

    So much better than what I was going to post. I just expanded ## e^x ## upto first 3 terms to get the second greater than first.

    Sorry for late reply. I was not able to come online a lot since a long time. Anyway, I tried to prove it, but I couldn't. Hence my proof is wrong. Sorry.

    Sorry, I thought it was sufficient to leave it at that. EDIT: I made one more mistake, I didn't mention that z is not equal to 0. If z=0, then the answers come to be (0,0,0) which is excluded.

    One wrong assumption, x=a is not the global maximal for all a. If a is negative or an even natural number, then it is just a critical point. But the answer is correct because it is the global maxima of ##e^{-2}##.

    In this method, ##a^2=9x^2, b^2=9y^2## . This implies ##c^2## is a multiple of 3. Then you can continue with the same method I did. Using contradiction to prove that solutions don't exist. However, I'm not sure how to prove that d divides c (if I'm not wrong, d is the gcd of a,b).

    I didn't write the answer for this one, because I didn't really come up with the solution. It was an example question in my physics textbook, and it had 2 methods of solving it. One of them was similar to yours and the other was similar to that of @nuuskur gave.

    I'm sorry. I advised it because when I came to this site, I learned that copy pasting latex causes some problems in this website. So I found out alternative ways. It also had the replace function, so I would type shortcuts, and then find and replace them. It also preserved the formatting. You...
