A bead of mass #m# is welded at the periphery of the smoothly pivoted disc of mass m and radius #R# as shown in figure. The pivot axis is horizontal and through the centre of disc. The disc is free to rotate in vertical plane. The disc is released from rest from position shown. Find the speed of bead at its lowest position?

A) #sqrt{(3/8) gR}#

B) #sqrt{(3/4) gR}#

C) #sqrt{(4/3) gR}#

D) #sqrt{(8/3) gR}#

A bead of mass

##### 1 Answer

D)

#### Explanation:

Relatively to the lowest path position, the set has a potential energy given by

and the kinetic energy at the lowest position is

We know also that
