Aditya's challenges in Mechanics 1

Classical Mechanics Level 5

Three similar rods of length \(l=1\text{ m}\), mass \(m=1\text{ kg}\) are welded to form a structure similar to the positive sides of 3D coordinate axes, as shown in figure above. Now it is rested on a very sharp pin about the intersection of rods so that they remain in equilibrium facing downwards. The system is in equilibrium. Now the system is shaken a bit horizontally so that it performs SHM. Find the time period of its SHM.

The answer is of the form \(\dfrac {A\pi} {B} \sqrt { \frac { \sqrt { C } }{ D } },\) where\(A\), \(B\), \(C\) and \(D\) are positive integers and \(C\) and \(D\) are square-free.

Find the value of \([(A+B)\times D]+\dfrac{C} {3}\).

Details and Assumptions:

  • \(g=10\text{ ms}^{-1}\).

  • Neglect air resistance.
