**Hint:**Use the expression for Newton’s second law of motion. Apply Newton’s second law of motion to the bar and the system of the motor-battery-block (body) in the horizontal and vertical direction and determine the acceleration of the body. Also use a kinematic equation for displacement of the bar and the body and calculate the time required for the collision of the bar and the body.

**Formulae used:**

The expression for Newton’s second law of motion is

\[{F_{net}} = ma\] …… (1)

Here, \[{F_{net}}\] is net force on the block, \[m\] is mass of the object and \[a\] is acceleration of the object.

The kinematic equation for displacement \[s\] of an object is

\[s = ut + \dfrac{1}{2}a{t^2}\] …… (2)

Here, \[u\] is initial velocity of the object, \[t\] is time and \[a\] is acceleration of the object.

The frictional force \[{F_f}\] acting on an object is

\[{F_f} = \mu N\] …… (3)

Here, \[\mu \] is the coefficient of friction and \[N\] is the normal force acting on the object.

**Complete step by step answer:**

We have given that a bar and an electric motor with a battery on a block are placed on a horizontal table and the coefficient of friction of the horizontal table is.The distance between the bar and the electric motor is \[l\].The bar is connected to the motor with a thread with which the bar is pulled towards the motor when the electric motor is switched on.

The acceleration of the bar when it moves towards the motor is \[w\].The mass of the bar is twice the mass of the system of the motor-battery-block.Let \[m\] be the mass of the bar and \[2m\] be the mass of the motor-battery-block system.Let us draw the free body diagram of the given system.

In the above figure, \[T\] is the tension in the thread, \[2mg\] and \[mg\] are the weights of the bar and the body, \[N'\] and \[N\] are the normal forces acting on the bar and the body, \[{F_1}\] and \[{F_2}\] are the frictional forces acting on the bar and the body respectively.Apply Newton’s second law of motion to the bar in the vertical direction.

\[N' = 2mg\]

Using equation (1), the frictional force on the bar is

\[{F_1} = kN'\]

\[ \Rightarrow {F_1} = k\left( {2mg} \right)\]

\[ \Rightarrow {F_1} = 2kmg\]

Apply Newton’s second law of motion to the bar in the horizontal direction.

\[T - {F_1} = 2mw\]

\[ \Rightarrow T - 2kmg = 2mw\]

\[ \Rightarrow T = 2mw + 2kmg\] …… (4)

Apply Newton’s second law of motion to the body in the vertical direction.

\[N = mg\]

Using equation (1), the frictional force on the body is

\[{F_2} = kN\]

\[ \Rightarrow {F_2} = k\left( {mg} \right)\]

\[ \Rightarrow {F_2} = kmg\]

Apply Newton’s second law of motion to the body in the horizontal direction.

\[{F_2} - T = - mw'\]

\[ \Rightarrow T - {F_2} = mw'\]

\[ \Rightarrow T - kmg = mw'\]

\[ \Rightarrow T = mw' + kmg\] …… (5)

Here, is \[w'\] the acceleration of the body.

Equating equations (4) and (5).

\[2mw + 2kmg = mw' + kmg\]

\[ \Rightarrow w' = 2w + kg\]

Initially, the bar and the body is at rest. Hence, the initial velocity of the bar and the body is zero.So, equation (2) for the displacement of the bar and body is

\[l = 0 + \dfrac{1}{2}\left( {w + w'} \right){\tau ^2}\]

\[ \Rightarrow 2l = \left( {w + w'} \right){\tau ^2}\]

\[ \Rightarrow \tau = \sqrt {\dfrac{{2l}}{{w + w'}}} \]

Here, \[\tau \] is the time required for the bar and body to collide each other.

Substitute \[2w + kg\] for \[w'\] in the above equation.

\[ \Rightarrow \tau = \sqrt {\dfrac{{2l}}{{w + \left( {2w + kg} \right)}}} \]

\[ \therefore \tau = \sqrt {\dfrac{{2l}}{{3w + kg}}} \]

**From the above equation, the value of \[x\] is 2.**

**Note:**The students should be careful while applying Newton’ second law of motion to the bar and the body. The students should use the sign of the forces carefully. If the signs of these forces are not taken correctly then the final expression for time required for the collision of the bar and body will be incorrect and we will obtain the incorrect answer.
