Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What friction are you talking about? Air friction can act this way, or spinning friction about the axis of rotation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In case of pure rolling body on a fixed base, this force is a static friction force and its power is zero. Such a force will never balance any external torque. This is why all systems with rolling bodies can be seen as conservative and solved using mechanical energy conservation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no i meant to say after an external torque is applied to a purely rolling body friction adjusts itself to prevent slipping of the point of contact..then after sometimes does the velocity becomes constant and friction ceases to act?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"no i meant to say WHILE an external torque is applied to a purely rolling body friction adjusts itself to prevent slipping of the point of contact" – Correct "..then after sometimes does the velocity becomes constant and friction ceases to act?" – If net external torque ceases to exist, velocity will be constant and, although friction is there, the friction force will be equal to zero.
