Question

Reason
The bob possesses horizontal velocity at the mean position.
Assertion
If the string of an oscillating simple pendulum is cut, when the bob is at the mean position, the bob falls along a parabolic path.
If the string of an oscillating simple pendulum is cut, when the bob is at the mean position, the bob falls along a parabolic path.

A
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion
B
Both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion
C
Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect
D
Assertion is incorrect but Reason is correct
Solution
Verified by Toppr

Correct option is B. Both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion
Option B is correct. Because correct explanation is that when string is cut net force acting on bob is only gravitational force, so under the influence of gravity (constant) bob always follow parabolic path
