A thought provoking (HOTS) problem from rotation

Share with:


Consider a disk rotating in a horizontal plane with a constant angular speed “omega” about its center O.


The disk has a shaded region on one side of the diameter and an unshaded region on the other  side.

When disk is in horizontal plane x-y with left half shaded and right half unshaded, two pebbles P and Q are simultaneously projected at an angle towards R.

The velocity of projection is in the y-z plane and is same for both pebbles with respect to the disk.

Assume that

(i) they land back on the disk before the disk has completed one-eighth rotation,

(ii) their range is less than half the disk  radius,and

(iii)”omega” remains constant throughout.

Then where will the two pebbles land?

(All are invited to answer this)
