. A smooth uniform rod of length L and mass M has two identical beads of negligible size, each of mass m

which can slide freely along the rod. Initially the two beads are at the centre of the rod and the system is rotating with angular velocity w0 about an axis perpendicular to the rod and passing through the mid point of the rod (see figure). There are no external forces. When the beads reach the ends of the rod, the angular velocity of the system is




Best Answer

Ans: D

Sol: Since there are no external forces therefore the angular momentum of the system remains constant
