What is Normal Reaction? Explain with diagram.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The component of contact force normal to the surfaces in contact is called normal reaction. It is the force acting perpendicular to two surfaces in contact with each other. It is a measure of the force holding the two surfaces together. If weight is the only vertical force acting on an object lying or moving on a horizontal surface, the normal reaction force is equal in magnitude, but opposite in direction to the weight.

- Assertion :pseudo force in an imaginary force which is recognized only by a non inertial observer to explain the physical situation according to Newton's laws Reason:pseudo force has no physical origin of the the basic interaction in nature, it doesn't exist as on action reaction .
- What are contact forces? Give some examples of contact and non contact forces.
- Give the formula of Spring Force and state the significance of the negative sign.

- Two forces of 5 kg and 12 kg are connected at the two end of the light inextensible string that passes over a frictionless pulley. Find the acceleration of the masses and the tension in the string, when the masses are released.
- A weighing machine inside a stationary lift reads 50 kgf, when a man stands on it. What would happen to the weighing machine reading, if the lift is moving with constant velocity and constant acceleration?
- The three blocks of mass 4 kg, 5 kg, and 6 kg are suspended with the string, which is passed over a pulley. Calculate the tension T1, T2, and T3 when the whole system is moving with an acceleration of 5 m/s2.
