# The net external torque on a system of particles about an axis is zero. Which of the following are compatible with it?

A. The forces may be acting radially from a point on the axis.

B. The forces may be acting on the axis of rotation.

C. The forces may be acting parallel to the axis of rotation.

D. The torque caused by some forces may be equal and opposite to that caused by other forces.

Answer :

As we know that

When forces are acting radially then θ=0. So,

When forces are acting on axis of rotation then r=0. So,

When forces are acting parallel to axis of rotation then its component in plane r and F is 0. Hence F=0. So,

When torques are equal and opposite then net torque is zero.

Hence correct options are a, b, c, d.

PREVIOUSFigure 7.4 shows two identical particles 1 and 2, each of mass m, moving in opposite directions with same speed v along parallel lines. At a particular instant, r1 and r2 are their respective position vectors drawn from point A which is in the plane of the parallel lines. Choose the correct options:NEXTFigure 7.5 shows a lamina in x-y plane. Two axes z and z′ pass perpendicular to its plane. A force F acts in the plane of lamina at point P as shown. Which of the following are true? (The point P is closer to z′-axis than the z-axis.)
