Rigid body is defined as a system of particles in which distance between each pair of particles remains constant (with respect to time) that means the shape and size do not change, during the motion.
Eg. Fan, Pen, Table, stone and so on.
Our body is not a rigid body, two blocks with a spring attached between them is also not a rigid body. For every pair of particles in a rigid body, there is no velocity of separation or approach between the particles. In the figure shown velocities of A and B with respect to ground are VA and VB respectively.
If the above body is rigid
VA cos θ1 = VB cos θ2
With respect to any particle of rigid body the motion of any other particle of that rigid body is circular.
VBA = relative velocity of B with respect to A.
Pure Translational Motion:
A body is said to be in pure translational motion if the displacement of each particle is same during any time interval however small or large. In this motion all the particles have same s, v & a at an instant.
Pure Rotational Motion:
A body is said to be in pure rotational motion if the perpendicular distance of each particle remains constant from a fixed line or point and do not move parallel to the line, and that line is known as axis of rotation. In this motion all the particles have same
θ, ω and α at an instant.
Combined translation and rotational Motion
A body is said to be in translation and rotational motion if all the particles rotates about an axis of rotation and the axis of rotation moves with respect to the ground.
MOMENT OF INERTIA
Like the centre of mass, the moment of inertia is a property of an object that is related to its mass distribution. The moment of inertia (denoted by I) is an important quantity in the study of system of particles that are rotating. The role of the moment of inertia in the study of rotational motion is analogous to that of mass in the study of linear motion. Moment of inertia gives a measurement of the resistance of a body to a change in its rotational motion. If a body is at rest, the larger the moment of inertia of a body the more difficult it is to put hat body into rotational motion. Similarly, the larger the moment of inertia of a body, the more difficult to stop its rotational motion. The moment of inertia is calculated about some axis (usually the rotational axis).
Moment of inertia depends on:
CENTRE OF MASS:
Every physical system has associated with it a certain point whose motion characterises the motion of the whole system. When the system moves under some external forces, then this point moves as if the entire mass of the system is concentrated at this point and also the external force is applied at this point for translational motion. This point is called the centre of mass of the system.
Position of COM of two particles:-
Consider two particles of masses m1 and m2 separated by a distance l as shown in figure.
Let us assume that m1 is placed at origin and m2, is placed at position (l, 0) and the distance of centre of mass from nil & m2 is r1 & r2, respectively.
From the above discussion, we see that
if m1 = m2 , i.e., COM lies midway
Between the two particles of equal masses.
Similarly, r1 > r2 if m1< m2 and r1 < r2 if m2 < mi i.e., COM is nearer to the particle having larger mass.
From equation (1) & (2)
Centre of mass of two particle system lie on the line joining the centre of mass of two particle system.
By learning in meritnation I got B2, but by learning topper learning I got A1... so which is the best. This is awesome to learn and easy to study science. At 1st term I got B2 but at 2nd term I got A1.

Excellent Faculty! I have been studying from topperlearning.com since Class IX and have consistently scored above 90% in my these 4 years.I studied throughout nights to achieve my goal.Moreover, becoming Rank 1 on topperlearning boosted my confidence to high skies.Thank you topperlearning, without you I would not have been able to score 91.2% in Class XII Boards(2015) and CGPA 9.8 in my Class X Boards(2013). Hope that topperlearning will continue to help students throughout India, creating a brighter future for them. Regards, Vivek Saahil

I like topper learning because I can understand the level I have prepared for my subject and study better.

Topperlearning is really a very good helping tool. Every time I had doubts related to any concept in PCM I posted it and immediately my problem was solved. It also helped me in scoring good ranks in competitive exams too. The topper faculty is very good. The teachers explained each and every concept in depth. My favourite teacher is Physics teacher

We all know that audio-visual medium is a better way of explaining and educating the students. It not only makes learning fun but also gives the message more clearly and precisely. Topper is a very good amalgamation of good teaching and good learning methods.
