### Centrepetal force at the north or south pole

You have made a very common error. $v$ varies with $r$; $\omega$ does not. Therefore, as $r\to0$, $a=r\omega^2\to 0$ as well.

### The No Slip/Slip Condition for Rotating/Rotating and Translating Bodies

Is it correct to say that if $v≠ωr$, slip will occur yes where if $v<ωr$ the sphere will rotate "too fast" yes where if $v>ωr$ the sphere will slip? yes Does the direction of ...

### Why is the direction of friction inwards in a rotating disc even though there is no motion in the inward direction?

However, previously I had learnt that friction acts in a direction opposite to the direction of motion That applies to kinetic friction which acts opposite to relative motion that is underway between ...

### Physical Significance of Torque

If torque about O is non zero,there is rotational effect of Force and hence the body is rotating about O. Maybe, maybe not. We can say that the angular momentum about that point is changing. ...

### What does the double covering in the Dirac equation have to do with that of $SO(3)$ by $SU(2)$?

Hestenes modifies the Dirac equation in order to identify the Dirac spinor's 8 real components with those of the even spacetime algebra. I think that's wrong, because it's incompatible with the fact ...

### Centripetal force

i am the observer at ground watching the stuff and i noticed that bob is rotating as well as rising ( thread making some angle with vertical) Since the thread is at some angle from vertical, the ...

### Why is the direction of friction inwards in a rotating disc even though there is no motion in the inward direction?

Since you confused about relative motion between the thing ($m$ at $R$) on the disc (spinning at $\omega$), let's solve it in a rotating frame so that every thing is at rest $(v=0)$, it's a statics ...

### Why is the direction of friction inwards in a rotating disc even though there is no motion in the inward direction?

Friction acts opposite of the direction of relative motion if friction wasn't there. In the absence of friction an object placed on a rotating disk (carefully to match the velocity of the object on ...

### Cartesian tensor transformation and representations of $SO(3)$

The question is very unclear so maybe what the OP means is that any matrix $$M=\pmatrix{M_{xx}&M_{xy}&M_{xz}\\ M_{yx}&M_{yy}&M_{yz}\\ M_{zx}&M_{zy}&M_zz}$$ can be written in ...

### The No Slip/Slip Condition for Rotating/Rotating and Translating Bodies

$\dots$ can this be extended to an accelerating system by taking the derivative with respect to time on both sides $\dots$ - yes In the first three examples on the left, the friction force to the ...
