**Q1 In which of the following examples of motion, can the body be considered**

approximately a point object:

(a) a railway carriage moving without jerks between two stations.

(b) a monkey sitting on top of a man cycling smoothly on a circular track.

(c) a spinning cricket ball that turns sharply on hitting the ground.

(d) a tumbling beaker that has slipped off the edge of a table.

Ans.(a) A railway carriage moving without jerks between two stations is considered as a point object as the distance traveled by train between two stations is very large as compared with the size of the train.

(b) A monkey sitting on top of a man cycling smoothly on a circular track is considered as a point object if the radius of the circular track through which the cyclist has traveled is very large as compared to the monkey sitting on top of the cyclist.

(c) A spinning cricket ball that turns sharply on hitting the ground can not be considered a point object because the distance which causes the ball to spin on hitting the ground is not much as compared to the size of the ball.

(d) A tumbling beaker that has slipped off the edge of a table can not be considered a point object since the distance traveled by the beaker from the table to the ground is not very large as compared to the size of the beaker.

**Q 3. 2. The position-time (x -t) graphs for two children A and B returning from their school O to their homes P and Q respectively are shown in Fig. Choose the correct entries in the brackets below:**

**(a) (A/B) lives closer to the school than (B/A).**

**(b) (A/B) starts from school earlier than (B/A).**

**(c) (A/B) walks faster than (B/A).**

**(d) A and B reach home at the (same/different) time.**

**(e) (A/B) overtakes (B/A) on the road (once/twice).**

Ans.

(a) A lives closer to the school than B because OP<OQ where OP and OQ are the distances of the homes of A and B from the school(O) respectively.

(b) A starts from school earlier than B because according to the graph A starts at t=0 while B starts after time t.

(c) B walks faster than A because the slope of graph B is more than the slope of graph A, as we know the speed is equal to the slope in the x-t graph.

(d) Let P reaches to his home after tp time and Q reaches after tq time

Time is taken by A to reach home = tp and time taken by B to reach home is tq, therefore A and B reach home at different time.

(e) B overtakes A on the road once because in the given x-t graph the graph of A and B intersect at one point and the speed of B is more than that of A.

**Question 3. 3. A woman starts from her home at 9.00 am, walks with a speed of 5 km h**^{-1} on a straight road up to her office 2.5 km away, stays at the office up to 5.00 pm, and returns home by an auto with a speed of 25 kmย h^{-1}. Choose suitable scales and plot the x-t graph of her motion.โ

Ans.

The women start from home to the office at 9.00 am from the origin O where t =9.00 am

The speed of the woman is given 5 km h^{-1 }and the distance to the office is 2.5 km

Time taken to the office by the woman is = distance/speed = 2.5/5 = 0.5 h = 0.5ร60 =30 minutes,therefore she will reach to the office at 9.30 am

She stays at office from 9.30 am to 5 pm,showing this period by a straight line parallel to x-axis since she is in stationary position within this period.

She return to her home at the speed of 25 kmย h^{-1}

Time taken by her to reach home = distance of her home from the office/her speed = 2.5/25 = (1 /10)hย =6 min

She reach to her home from her office at (5 pm +6 min=5.06) pm.

**Question 3. 4. A drunkard walking in a narrow lane takes 5 steps forward and 3 steps backward, followed again by 5 steps forward and 3 steps backward, and so on. Each step is 1 m long and requires 1 s. Plot the x-t graph of his motion. Determine graphically and otherwise how long the drunkard takes to fall in a pit 13 m away from the start.**

Ans. The drunkard moves 5 steps forward and 3 steps backward

One step is equal to 1 m ,so he moves 5 m forward and 3 m backward in 8 s

The drunkard moves (5-3 =2 m) in 8 seconds

2 m is moved by the drunkard in 8 s

8 m will be travelled by him in 32 s

So in next 5 steps(i,e 5m) he will fall in the pit and the time taken to complete this journey is 32 +5=37s

**Q 3. 5. A jet airplane travelling at the speed of 500 km/h ejects its products of combustion at the speed of 1500 km h**^{-1ย }relative to the jet plane. What is the speed of the latter with respect to an observer on the ground?

Ans. The velocity of the jet airplane isย ย **V**_{jet},= 500 km/h

Velocity of the combustion products relative to Jet is V_{cj },= 1500 km/h

Let the speed of the combustion product with respect to observer is =x km/h

Velocity of combustion products with respect to jet = Velocity of combustion with respect to observer -Velocity of the jet with respect to the observer

-1500 = x – 500( negative sign of the combustion products is for opposite direction to the jet)

x = -1500 +500 =1000

Hence the velocity of the combustion products with respect to the observer is -1000 km/h,negative sign shows that its direction is opposite to the direction of the jet

**Q3.6- A car moving along a straight highway with a speed of 126 km h**^{โ1}**ย is brought to aย stop within a distance of 200 m. What is the retardation of the car (assumedย uniform), and how long does it take for the car to stop?**

Ans. Initial speed of the car,u = 126 km h^{โ1}

The distance traveled by car,s = 200 m

Since the car is stopped after a distance, therefore its final speed,v =0

Applying the third equation of the motion

vยฒ = uยฒ + 2as

126 km/h =126000/3600 =35 m/s

0 = 35ยฒ + 2a(200)

400a = -1225

a = -1225/400 =-3.06 m/sยฒ

v = u + at =35 – 3.06t

t = 35/3.06 =11.4 s

Therefore, the car stopped after 11.4 s with a retardation of -3.06m/sยฒ

**Q3. 7. Two trains A and B of length 400 m each are moving on two parallel tracks with a uniform speed of 72 km h**^{-1}ย in the same direction, with A ahead of B. The driver of B decides to overtake A and accelerates by 1 ms^{-1}. If after 50 s, the guard of B just brushes past the driver of A, what was the original distance between them?

Ans.ย The speed of both the train is given same, 71km/h therefore the relative velocity of train B with respect to the train A = **U**_{BA}=0

The train B overtakes the train A after 50 s and the total distance covered by the train B is (s+800 m) where s is the initial distance between the train and 800 m is the sum of the lengths of both the train.

Applying second equation of the motion

s + 800 = **U**_{BA}t + (1/2)atยฒ

s +800 = 0 + (1/2)ร1ร50ยฒ

s = 1250 -800

s = 450 m

Therefore the original distance between guard of B from the driver of A is 450 +800 =1250 m

**ย Q3.8-On a two-lane road, car A is travelling with a speed of 36 km h**^{-1}. Two cars B and C approach car A in opposite directions with a speed of 54 km h^{-1}ย each. At a certain instant, when the distance AB is equal to AC, both being 1 km, B decides to overtake A before C does. What minimum acceleration of car B is required to avoid an accident?

Ans.The speed of the car A is ,=**V**_{A} 36km/h =36000/3600 =10 m/s

The speed of the car B and C is same, **V**_{B}**=V**_{C}=54 km/h = 54000/3600 =15 m/s

The distance between the car B and A ,AB and the distance between the car A and C ,AC are 1 km =1000 m

Since the car B and the car C approaches the car A from opposite direction

The relative velocity of the car B with respect to the car A ,**V**_{BA}= **V**_{B}**-V**_{C }= 15 -10 =5 m/s(i.e have same direction)

Relative velocity of car C w.r.t car A = 15 + 10 =25 m/s(since both are moving opposite to each other)

The time taken by the car C in overtaking the car A = Distance AC/Relative velocity of car C w.r.t car A =1000/25 =40s

In 40 seconds the car B has to overtake the car A,before the car C does, the car B accelerated by โaโ for doing this

Applying the second equation of the motion

S = u_{BA}t + (1/2)atยฒ = 5ร40 + (1/2)ร40ยฒa

1000 =200 + 800a

a = 1

The minimum acceleration of car B is required to avoid an accident is 1 m/sยฒ
