comment Gravitational force exerted by a rod on a point mass
@udiboy. It is not on a site, it is from one of the coaching center study materials. The final answer comes out to be $F\ =\ \frac{Gm_1m_2}{r(L + r)}$. Is this what you would get if you solved the problem the right way?

comment Work, Energy & Power - Body slides down a hemisphere
Thank you very much for your answer. It has cleared a lot of doubts. But I have some questions. We know that $mgcos\theta \ =\ R_h$. $R_h$ becomes $0$ when $cos\theta$ becomes $0$. This would imply that the mass has slid all the way down to the foot of the hemisphere. But the answer that I get eventually is $h\ =\ \frac{2}{3}r$ which would mean it leaves the surface much before. The answer is contradictory, or maybe I'm interpreting this wrong. Could you clarify?

I had thought about pseudo-forces as well, but only after I had posted this question. Nonetheless, you have answered all of my questions with great specificity. Thank you very much.

@joshphysics. Yes, I understand, I appreciate your concern. If you could make suggestions on how to edit it, it may help, because, I really don't know how to better convey my question.

comment Inertial Frames of Reference - Inertial vs. Accelerated Frames
@joshphysics. My question is specific, therefore in order to convey the context in which I have understood the concept as above, I need to provide a specific description of my line of thought. The length of this post is completely justifiable and does not need to be cut down.

comment Inertial Frames of Reference - Inertial vs. Accelerated Frames
My question is simple. What is the meaning of making a statement that an inertial frame of reference is an unaccelerated one? Further, what is the meaning of the statement that frames that are accelerating with respect to the occupied frame of reference do not determine whether the occupied frame is accelerated or not? Are these observations made from another frame of reference?
