what is meant by rigid body and a not rigid body
Asked by bhavna | 8th Apr, 2012, 03:07: PM
a rigid body is an idealization of a solid body of finite size in which deformation is neglected. In other words, the distance between any two given points of a rigid body remains constant in time regardless of external forces exerted on it.
A non-rigid body will deform even if a force is small. In reality, all bodies deform.
