Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for maximum compression..whole kinetic energy is transferred to spring energy...that helps ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and in such case,,effective mass = m1 m2 / (m1 + m2) am i helping ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i mean are you getting ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12 masses are connected to a spring on 2 ends..say m1 and m2.. then the effective mass is m1 m2/ (m1 + m2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait....I mean....I did nt get...wat is effective mass shuld nt it be m1 + m2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1effective mass or can be also called reduced mass of the system.. never heard of it ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So.... 1/2 k x^2 = 1/2 effective mass * v^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well reduced mass is no big deal..has a simple derivation.. you wanna know ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there isnt much need for the derivation for you to know since you're JEE aspirant..but still i can tell if you want..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1kk..newton's 3rd law states that F1 = F2 right ? both taken in vector form.. F1 will be one acting on 1st body,,F2 on second..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1all expressions are in vector form below : m1 a1 =  m2 a2 =>a1 = (m2/m1) a2 now relative acceleration between the bodies a = a2  a1 = a2 (1 + m2/m1) = m2 a2 ( m1 + m2)/(m1 m2) following ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Tell me a Scenario where we will use Effective Mass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now..m1m2 / (m1+ m2) = M (reduced or effective mass) so we have F2/M = a or F2 = Ma so what do you conclude ?

shubhamsrg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1see,,any 2 body system can be converted to 1 body system with this effective mass... force acting between them will also act between this one body system..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm,,whats the conclusion you can draw then?
