A particle of mass m is rotating in a horizontal circle of radius R and is attached to a hanging mass M as shown in the figure. The speed of rotation required by the mass m keep M steady is

To keep the mass M steady, let T is the tension in the string joining the two. Then for particle m comma
T equals fraction numerator m v to the power of 2 end exponent over denominator R end fraction open parentheses i close parentheses
For mass M comma
T equals M g left parenthesis i i right parenthesis
From Eqs. (i) and (ii)
fraction numerator m v to the power of 2 end exponent over denominator R end fraction equals M g ⟹ v equals square root of fraction numerator M g R over denominator m end fraction end root

Time of flight of B is, T subscript 2 end subscript equals fraction numerator 2 u sin invisible function application theta over denominator g cos invisible function application theta end fraction equals fraction numerator 2 u over denominator g end fraction tan invisible function application theta
So, T subscript 1 end subscript equals T subscript 2 end subscript. The acceleration of both the particles is g downwards. Therefore, relative acceleration between the two is zero or relative motion between the two is uniform. The relative velocity of A w.r.t. B is towards A B blank, therefore collision will take place between the two in mid air.
