A ball of mass m is attached to one end of a light rod of length $l$, other end of which is hinged . What minimum velocity 'v' should be imparted to the ball downwards so that it can complete the circle

\[(a)\;\sqrt {gl} \quad (b)\;\sqrt {5gl} \quad (c)\;\sqrt {3gl} \quad (d)\; \sqrt {2gl} \]

Can you answer this question?

The velocity at top most position of circle must be zero for finding minimum velocity of projection.
$0=u^2-2gh\qquad (h=l)$
Hence d is the correct answer.
