For this problem, the area dA of an annulus of “infinitesimal” width dx is , so the total mass is .
The mass per unit area of a disc is changing as (x + 2)/π kg/m^2 where x is the distance from the centre. If radius of the disc is 4m then:
A)mass of disc is 224/3 kg
B)mass of disc is 122π/3 kg
C)mass per unit area at centre is 2/π kg/m^2
D)mass per unit area is zero at the centre
More than one answers are correct. Please explain how to solve these types of questions too.
