## Long Answer Type Questions

**Question 1**:

What do you mean by the moment of force applied on a body? Write its unit and dimensional formula.

**Question 2**:

Define term angular acceleration. Write its unit and dimensional formula. Establish relation between angular acceleration and linear acceleration

**Question 3**:

What is the difference between inertia and moment of inertia? What is the physical significance of moment of inertia?

**Question 4**:

A body is rotating with a uniform angular velocity about an axis. Establish a formula for its kinetic energy of rotation. Define moment of inertia of the body with respect to the axis of rotation on this basis?

**Question 5**:

Define angular momentum and torque. Prove that the time rate of change of angular momentum is equal to the applied external torque.

## Understanding Type

**Question 6**:

If a body is rotating is it necessarily being acted upon by an external torque?
