A boy comes running and sits on a rotating platform. What is conserved?

Options :
  1. linear momentum
  2. kinetic energy
  3. angular momentum
  4. None of the above
Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 4


K.E. or momentum = f (m, v) Since the linear velocity v and so the angular velocity of boy is changing . Thus K.e. and momentum of boy are not conserved.

The barrier during self-improvement is not so much that we hate learning, rather we hate being taught. To learn entails that the knowledge was achieved on one's own accord - it feels great - but to be taught often leaves a feeling of inferiority. Thus it takes a bit of determination and a lot of humility in order for one to fully develop.
