What do you understand by a rigid body?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Aug, 2014, 01:09: PM
A rigid body is a solid body of finite size which can not be deformed and the distance between any two points on the rigid body does not change much with time. Also, there is no migration of mass within a rigid body. The whole body moves as one, under the effect of external forces.
