Q1 A girl riding a bicycle along a straight road

with a speed of 5 m s –1

throws a stone of

mass 0.5 kg which has a speed of 15 m s –

1 with respect to the ground along her

direction of motion. The mass of the girl and bicycle is 50 kg. Does the speed of

the bicycle change after the stone is

thrown? What is the change in speed, if so?

A1 Yes, due to the principle of conservation

of momentum. Initial momentum = 50.5 × 5 kg m s–1

Final momentum = (50 v + 0.5 × 15) kg m s –1

(a) = 4.9 m s -1

, change in speed = 0.1 m s –1

Q2 A person of mass 50 kg stands on a weighing

scale on a lift. If the lift is descending

with a downward acceleration of 9 m s –2

,

)

Let R be the reading of the scale, in newtons.

50g R

Effective downward acceleration g 50 R = 5g = 50N. (The weighing scale will show 5 kg).

The position time graph of a body of mass 2 kg

is as given in Fig.. What is the impulse on

the body at t = 0 s and t = 4 s

A3 Zero ; -3/2 kgm/s Q4 A person driving a car suddenly applies the brakes on seeing a

child on the road ahead. If he is not wearing seat belt, he falls

forward and hits his head against the steering wheel. Why?

A4 The only retarding force that acts on him, if he is not using a

seat belt comes from the friction exerted by the seat. This is

not enough to prevent him from moving forward when the

vehicle is brought to a sudden halt.

Q5 A block placed on a rough horizontal surface is pulled by a

horizontal force F. Let f be the force applied by the rough

surface on the block. Plot a graph of f versus F.

A5

Q6

f = F until the block is stationary.

f remains constant if F increases beyond this point and the block starts moving

f

F Why are porcelain objects wrapped in paper or straw before

packing for transportation?

A6 : In transportation, the vehicle say a truck, may need to halt suddenly. To

bring a fragile material, like porcelain object to a sudden halt means

applying a large force and this is likely to damage the object. If it is

wrapped up in say, straw, the object can travel some distance as the straw

is soft before coming to a halt. The force needed to achieve this is less,

thus reducing the possibility of damage

Q7 Why does a child feel more pain when she falls down on a hard

cement floor, than when she falls on the soft muddy ground in

the garden?

A7 The body of the child is brought to a sudden halt when

she/he falls on a cement floor. The mud floor yields and the

body travels some distance before it comes to rest , which

takes some time. This means the force which brings the child

to rest is less for the fall on a mud floor, as the change in

momentum is brought about over a longer period.

Q8 Why are mountain roads generally made winding

upwards rather than going straight up?

A8 : f = R = mg cos is the force of friction, if is angle

made by the slope. If is small, force of friction is high

and there is less chance of skidding. The road straight up

would have a larger slope.

Q9 A mass of 2kg is suspended with thread AB (Fig. ). Thread CD

of the same type is attached to the other end of 2 kg mass. Lower

thread is pulled

gradually, harder and harder in the downward directon so as to

apply force on AB. Which of the threads will break and why?

A9 AB, because force on the upper thread will be equal to sum of the weight

of the body and the applied force

Q10 In the above given problem if the lower thread is pulled with a

jerk, what happens?

A10 If the force is large and sudden, thread CD breaks

because as CD is jerked, the pull is not transmitted to AB

instantaneously (transmission depends on the elastic

properties of the body). Therefore, before the mass moves,

CD breaks.

Q11

A block of mass M is held against a rough vertical wall by

pressing it with a finger. If the coefficient of friction

between the block and the wall is µ and the acceleration

due to gravity is g calculate the minimum force

required to be applied by the fingerto hold the block

against the wall.

A11 Answer : If F is the force of the finger on the book, F

= N, the normal reaction of the wall on the book. The

minimum upward frictional force needed to ensure that

the book does not fall is Mg. The frictional force = N.

Thus, minimum value of F Mg

.

There are three forces F1, F2 and F3 acting on

a body, all acting on a point P on the

body. The body is found to move with

uniform speed.

(a) Show that the forces are coplanar. (b) Show that the torque acting on the body

about any point due to these three forces is

zero.

A12

the sum of the 3 forces is zero.

F 1 +F 2 +F3 =0

Let F1 , F2 , F3 be the 3 forces passing

through a point

Let F1 and F2 be in the plane A (one can

always draw a plane having two intersecting lines

such that the two lines lie on the plane)

. Then F1 F2 must be in the plane A.

Since F3 –F1 + F2 ,

F3 is also in the plane A

(b)Consider the torque of the forces about P. Since all the forces pass

through P, the torque is zero. Now consider torque about another point

0. Then torque about 0 is

Torque OPF1+ F2+ F3

Since F1 + F2 + F3 0 , torque = 0

Q1 A girl riding a bicycle along a straight road

with a speed of 5 m s –1

throws a stone of

mass 0.5 kg which has a speed of 15 m s –

1 with respect to the ground along her

direction of motion. The mass of the girl and bicycle is 50 kg. Does the speed of

the bicycle change after the stone is

thrown? What is the change in speed, if so?

A1 Yes, due to the principle of conservation

of momentum. Initial momentum = 50.5 × 5 kg m s–1

Final momentum = (50 v + 0.5 × 15) kg m s –1

(a) = 4.9 m s -1

, change in speed = 0.1 m s –1

Q2 A person of mass 50 kg stands on a weighing

scale on a lift. If the lift is descending

with a downward acceleration of 9 m s –2

,

)

Let R be the reading of the scale, in newtons.

50g R

Effective downward acceleration g 50 R = 5g = 50N. (The weighing scale will show 5 kg).

The position time graph of a body of mass 2 kg

is as given in Fig.. What is the impulse on

the body at t = 0 s and t = 4 s

A3 Zero ; -3/2 kgm/s Q4 A person driving a car suddenly applies the brakes on seeing a

child on the road ahead. If he is not wearing seat belt, he falls

forward and hits his head against the steering wheel. Why?

A4 The only retarding force that acts on him, if he is not using a

seat belt comes from the friction exerted by the seat. This is

not enough to prevent him from moving forward when the

vehicle is brought to a sudden halt.

Q5 A block placed on a rough horizontal surface is pulled by a

horizontal force F. Let f be the force applied by the rough

surface on the block. Plot a graph of f versus F.

A5

Q6

f = F until the block is stationary.

f remains constant if F increases beyond this point and the block starts moving

f

F Why are porcelain objects wrapped in paper or straw before

packing for transportation?

A6 : In transportation, the vehicle say a truck, may need to halt suddenly. To

bring a fragile material, like porcelain object to a sudden halt means

applying a large force and this is likely to damage the object. If it is

wrapped up in say, straw, the object can travel some distance as the straw

is soft before coming to a halt. The force needed to achieve this is less,

thus reducing the possibility of damage

Q7 Why does a child feel more pain when she falls down on a hard

cement floor, than when she falls on the soft muddy ground in

the garden?

A7 The body of the child is brought to a sudden halt when

she/he falls on a cement floor. The mud floor yields and the

body travels some distance before it comes to rest , which

takes some time. This means the force which brings the child

to rest is less for the fall on a mud floor, as the change in

momentum is brought about over a longer period.

Q8 Why are mountain roads generally made winding

upwards rather than going straight up?

A8 : f = R = mg cos is the force of friction, if is angle

made by the slope. If is small, force of friction is high

and there is less chance of skidding. The road straight up

would have a larger slope.

Q9 A mass of 2kg is suspended with thread AB (Fig. ). Thread CD

of the same type is attached to the other end of 2 kg mass. Lower

thread is pulled

gradually, harder and harder in the downward directon so as to

apply force on AB. Which of the threads will break and why?

A9 AB, because force on the upper thread will be equal to sum of the weight

of the body and the applied force

Q10 In the above given problem if the lower thread is pulled with a

jerk, what happens?

A10 If the force is large and sudden, thread CD breaks

because as CD is jerked, the pull is not transmitted to AB

instantaneously (transmission depends on the elastic

properties of the body). Therefore, before the mass moves,

CD breaks.

Q11

A block of mass M is held against a rough vertical wall by

pressing it with a finger. If the coefficient of friction

between the block and the wall is µ and the acceleration

due to gravity is g calculate the minimum force

required to be applied by the fingerto hold the block

against the wall.

A11 Answer : If F is the force of the finger on the book, F

= N, the normal reaction of the wall on the book. The

minimum upward frictional force needed to ensure that

the book does not fall is Mg. The frictional force = N.

Thus, minimum value of F Mg

.

There are three forces F1, F2 and F3 acting on

a body, all acting on a point P on the

body. The body is found to move with

uniform speed.

(a) Show that the forces are coplanar. (b) Show that the torque acting on the body

about any point due to these three forces is

zero.

A12

the sum of the 3 forces is zero.

F 1 +F 2 +F3 =0

Let F1 , F2 , F3 be the 3 forces passing

through a point

Let F1 and F2 be in the plane A (one can

always draw a plane having two intersecting lines

such that the two lines lie on the plane)

. Then F1 F2 must be in the plane A.

Since F3 –F1 + F2 ,

F3 is also in the plane A

(b)Consider the torque of the forces about P. Since all the forces pass

through P, the torque is zero. Now consider torque about another point

0. Then torque about 0 is

Torque OPF1+ F2+ F3

Since F1 + F2 + F3 0 , torque = 0
