A disc of mass 'm' and radius 'r' is present on a rough surface . Find the angular frequency (w) of the S.H.M . Consider pure rolling of the disc

$(a)\;\sqrt{\large\frac{8K_{1}}{3m}}\qquad(b)\;\sqrt{\large\frac{4 K_{1}}{3m}}\qquad(c)\;\sqrt{\large\frac{K_{1}}{3m}}\qquad(d)\;None\;of\;these$

1 Answer

Answer : (c) $\;\sqrt{\large\frac{K_{1}}{3m}}$
Explanation :
Let the disc roll on the surface and the centre be moved by a distance x .
Therefore , The top most point of the disc will move by a distance of 2x .
Therefore , Considering free body diagram of the systems
$f$= (friction)
$T=2 K_{1}x$
Considering torque about centre
$(T+f)\;r=\large\frac{mr^2}{2} \times \alpha$
As the disc rolls a=$\;r \alpha$
$2T=\large\frac{3ma}{2} \; => T=\large\frac{3ma}{4}$
