Answer:

The Scalar product of two vectors (dot product) is defined as the product of the magnitudes of both the vectors and the cosine of angle between them.

If \(\vec{A}\) and \(\vec{B}\) are two vectors having an angle θ between them, then their scalar or dot product is

Question 5.

Write a Short note on vector product between two vectors.

Answer:

The vector product or cross product of two vectors is defined as another vector having a magnitude equal to the product of the magnitudes of two vectors and the sine of the angle between them. The direction of the product vector is perpendicular to the plane containing the two vectors, in accordance with the right hand screw rule or right hand thumb rule. Thus, if\(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{A}}\) and \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) are two vectors, then their vector product is written as \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{A}}\) × \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) which is a vector C defined by \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{c}}\) = \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{A}}\) x \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) = (AB sin 0) \(\hat{n}\)

The direction \(\hat{n}\) of \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{A}}\) x \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) , i.e., \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{c}}\) is perpendicular to the plane containing the vectors \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{A}}\) and \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\).

Answer:

If the vector product of the two given vectors is having maximum magnitude.

i.e sinθ = 90°, [ (\(\vec{A}\) x \(\vec{B}\))Max = AB\(\hat{n}\) ] then the two vectors are said to be perpendicular.

In this displacement calculator, we will show you how to find displacement in a matter of seconds.

- Angular velocity: The rate of change of angular displacement is called angular velocity.

Question 13.

What is non-uniform circular motion?

Answer:

When an object is moving in a circular path with variable speed, it covers unequal distances in equal intervals of time. Then the motion of the object is said to be a non-uniform circular motion. Here both speed and direction during circular motion change.

Question 14.

Write down the kinematic equations for angular motion.

Answer:

The Kinematic equations for angular motion are ω = ω_{0} + αt

θ = ω_{0}t + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)αt²

ω² = ω_{0}² + 2αθ

θ = \(\left(\frac{\omega_{0}+\omega}{2}\right)\) x t

ω_{0} → initial angular velocity

ω → final angular velocity

α → angular acceleration

θ → angular displacement

t → time interval

Question 15.

Question 2.

Discuss the properties of scalar and vector products.

Answer:

Properties of scalar product:

formula : \(\vec{A}\).\(\vec{B}\) = ABCosθ

1. The product quantity \(\overline{A}\).\(\overline{B}\) is always a scalar. It is positive if the angle between the vectors is acute (θ< 90°) and negative if angle between them is obtuse (90 < θ < 180)

2. The scalar product is commutative \(\overline{A}\).\(\overline{B}\) = \(\overline{B}\).\(\overline{A}\)

3. The scalar product obey distributive law. \(\overline{A}\).( \(\overline{B}\) + \(\overline{C}\) ) = \(\overline{A}\).\(\overline{B}\) + \(\overline{A}\).\(\overline{C}\)

4. The angle between the vector is θ = Cos^{-1}\(\frac{\bar{A} \cdot \bar{B}}{A B}\)

5. The scalar product of two vectors will be maximum when cos θ = 1 i.e θ = 0 ie when they are parallel.

[ ( \(\overline{A}\).\(\overline{B}\) ) max = AB.]

6. The scalar product of two vectors will be minimum when cos θ = -1 ie θ = 180°

( \(\overline{A}\).\(\overline{B}\))_{mm} = – AB [the vector are anti-parallel]

7. If two vector \(\overline{A}\) & \(\overline{B}\) are perpendicular to each other then \(\overline{A}\).\(\overline{B}\) = O. Because cos 90 = 0. Then vectors A & B are mutually orthogonal.

8. The scalar product of a vector with it self is termed as self or dot product and is given by

( \(\overline{A}\) )² = \(\overline{A}\).\(\overline{A}\) = AA cos θ = A²

Here 0=0

The magnitude or norm of the vector \(\overline{A}\) is

|A| = A = \(\sqrt{\bar{A} \cdot \bar{A}}\) = A.

9. Incase of orthogonal unit vectors

\(\hat{n}\).\(\hat{n}\) = 1 x 1cos0 = 1

for eg \(\hat{i}\).\(\hat{i}\) = \(\hat{j}\).\(\hat{j}\) = \(\hat{k}\).\(\hat{k}\) = 1

10. Incase of orthogonal unit vectors \(\hat{i}\), \(\hat{f}\), \(\hat{k}\) then \(\hat{i}\).\(\hat{j}\) = \(\hat{j}\).\(\hat{k}\) = \(\hat{k}\).\(\hat{j}\) = 1.1 cos 90 = 0.

11. In terms of components the scalar product of A and B can be written as

Properties of cross product:

Formula \(\vec{A}\) x \(\vec{B}\) = ABsinθ

1. The vector product of any two vectors is always an another vector whose direction perpendicular to the plane containing these two vectors, ie. Orthogonal to \(\overline{A}\) & \(\overline{B}\) even though \(\overline{A}\) & \(\overline{B}\) may not be mutually orthogonal.

2. Vector product is not commutative

\(\overline{A}\) x \(\overline{B}\) = – \(\overline{B}\).\(\overline{A}\)

\(\overline{A}\) x \(\overline{B}\) ≠ \(\vec{B}\) x \(\vec{A}\)

Here magnitude | \(\overline{A}\) x \(\overline{B}\) | = | \(\overline{B}\).\(\overline{A}\) | are equal but opposite direction.

3. The vector product of two vector is maximum when sine = 1, ie θ = 90°

ie. when \(\overline{A}\) and \(\overline{B}\) are orthogonal to each other.

( \(\overline{A}\) x \(\overline{B}\) ) max = AB \(\hat{n}\).

4. The vector product of two non zero vectors is minimum if |sinθ| = 0. ie. θ = 0 or 180°

( \(\overline{A}\) x \(\overline{B}\) ) m in = 0

Vector product of two non zero vectors is equal to zero if they either parallel or anti parallel

5. The self cross product ie product of a vector with itself is a null vector \(\overline{A}\) x \(\overline{B}\) = AA sinθ = 0

6. The self-vector product of the unit vector is zero

i.e. \(\hat{i}\).\(\hat{j}\) = \(\hat{j}\).\(\hat{j}\) = \(\hat{k}\).\(\hat{k}\) = 0

7. In case of orthogonal unit vectors \(\hat{i}\), \(\hat{j}\), \(\hat{k}\) in accordance with right hand cork screw rule \(\hat{i}\).\(\hat{j}\) =\(\hat{k}\), \(\hat{i}\).\(\hat{k}\) = \(\hat{i}\), \(\hat{k}\).\(\hat{i}\) = \(\hat{j}\) also since cross product is not commutative

9. If two vectors \(\overline{A}\) & \(\overline{B}\) form adjacent sides of a parallelogram then the magnitude of |\(\overline{A}\) x \(\overline{B}\)| will give area 0f parallelogram.

10. Since one can divide a parallelogram into two equal triangles, the area of the triangle is \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) |\(\overline{A}\) x \(\overline{B}\)|.

Question 3.

Derive the kinematic equations of motion for constant acceleration.

Answer:

Consider an object moving in a straight line with uniform or constant acceleration ‘a’. Let u be the initial velocity at t = 0, and v be the final velocity after a time of t seconds

(i) Velocity time relation:

The acceleration of the body at any instant is given by first derivative of the velocity with time

a = \(\frac { dv }{ dt }\)

dv = adt

integrating both sides

Displacement time relation:

(ii) The velocity of the body is given by the first derivative of the displacement with respect to time

But v = ds/dt

∴ dv = v dt

v = u + at

ds = (u + at)dt

ds = udt + atdt

Integrating both sides

Velocity-displacement relation:

also we can derive from the relation v = u + at

v – u = at

Substituting in equation s = ut + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)at²

Question 4.

Derive the equations of motion for a particle (a) falling vertically (b) projected vertically.

Answer:

For a body falling vertically from a height ‘h’:

Consider an object of mass m falling from height h.

Neglecting air resistance, the downward direction as the positive y-axis.

The object experiences acceleration ‘g’ due to gravity which is constant near the surface of the earth.

In kinematic equations of motion \(\vec{a}\) = g\(\hat{i}\)

By comparing the components a_{x} = 0, a_{g} = 0, a_{y}= g

Case – 1

If the particle is thrown with initial velocity ‘u’ downward then

v = u + gt

y = ut + 1/2gt²

v² – u² = 2gy

Case – 2

Suppose the particle starts from rest,

u = 0

v = gt

y = 1/2gt²

v² = 2gy

For a body projected vertically: Consider an object of mass m thrown vertically upwards with an initial velocity u. Ne-glect air friction. The vertical direction as positive y axis then the acceleration,

a = – g

The kinematic equation of motion are v = u – gt

v = u – gt

s = ut – 1/2 gt²

Projectile motion calculator solving for vertical velocity at time given initial vertical velocity, acceleration of gravity and time.

Question 5.

Derive the equations of motion, range, and maximum height reached by a particle thrown at an oblique angle θ with respect to the horizontal direction.

Answer:

Consider an object thrown with an initial velocity u at an angle θ with horizontal.

Then initial velocity is resolved into two components

u_{x} = u cos θ horizontally and

u_{y} = u sin θ vertically

At maximum height u_{y} = 0 (since acceleration due to gravity is opposite to the direction of the vertical component).

The Horizontal component of velocity

u_{x} = u cos θ remains constant throughout its motion.

hence after the time t the velocity along the horizontal motion

V_{x} = U_{x} + a_{x}t

= ux = cos θ

The horizontal distance travelled by the projectile in a time ‘t’ is S_{x} = u_{x}t + 1/2 a_{x}t².

Here S_{x} = x u_{x} = u cos θ

a_{x} = 0

∴ x = u cos θt ____ (1)

∴ t = \(\frac { x }{ u cos θ }\) ____ (2)

For vertical motion

V_{y} = u_{y} + a_{y}t

Here v_{y} = v_{y}

u_{y} = u sin θ

a_{y} = – g

v_{y} = u sin θ – gt

The vertical distance travelled by the projectile in the same time ‘t’ is

S_{y} = U_{y} t + a_{y} t²

S_{y} = y, U_{y} = u sin θ a_{y} = – g

y = u sin θ t – 1/2 gt² ____ (4)

Substituting the value of t in (4) we get equation:

Which indicates the path followed by the projectile is an inverted parabola.

Expression for Maximum height:

The maximum vertical distance travelled by the projectile during its motion is called maximum height.

We know that

v_{y}² = u_{y}² + 2a_{y}s

Here u_{y} = u sin 0, a_{y} = – g, s = h_{max}

v_{y} = 0

Expression for horizontal range:

The maximum horizontal distance between the point of projection and the point on the horizontal plane where the projectile hits the ground is called horizontal range.

Horizontal range = Horizontal component of velocity x time of flight

R = u cos θ x t_{f} → (1)

Time of flight (t_{f}) is the time taken by the projectile from point of projection to point the projectile hits the ground again

w.k.t = S_{y} = u_{y} t_{f} + 1/2 a_{y} t²_{f})

Here S_{y} = 0 u_{y} = u sin θ, a_{y} = – g

0 = u sin θ t_{f} – 1/2g t²_{f}

1/2 gt t²_{f} = u sin θ t_{f}

Question 6.

Derive the expression for centripetal acceleration.

Answer:

In uniform circular motion the velocity vector turns continuously with out changing its magnitude. ie speed remains constant and direction changes. Even though the velocity is tangential to every point is a circle, the acceleration it acting towards the centre of the circle along the radius. This is called centripetal acceleration

Expression:

The centripetal acceleration is derived from a simple geometrical relationship between position and velocity vectors. Let the directions of position and velocity vectors shift through same angle θ in a small time interval ∆t

For uniform circular motion r = \(\left|\bar{r}_{1}\right|\) = \(\left|\bar{r}_{2}\right|\)

and v = \(\left|\bar{v}_{1}\right|\) = \(\left|\bar{v}_{2}\right|\)

If the particle moves from position vector \(\bar{r}_{1}\) to \(\bar{r}_{2}\) the displacement is given by \(\overrightarrow{\Delta r}\) = \(\bar{r}_{2}\) – \(\bar{r}_{1}\)

and change in velocity from \(\bar{v}_{1}\) to \(\bar{v}_{2}\) is given ∆\(\bar { v }\) = \(\bar{v}_{2}\) – \(\bar{v}_{1}\)

The magnitudes of the displacement ∆r and ∆v satisfy the following relation

Here negative sign indicates that ∆v points radially inwards, towards the centre of the circle

For uniform circular motion v=rω where ω is the angular velocity of the particle about the center

The centripetal acceleration a = ω²r.

Question 7.

Derive the expression for total acceleration in the non-uniform circular motion.

Answer:

If the velocity changes both in speed and direction during circular motion, then we get non-uniform circular motion. Whenever the speed is not the same in a circular motion then the particle will have both centripetal and tangential acceleration.

The resultant acceleration is obtained by the vector sum of centripetal and tangential acceleration

Let the tangential acceleration be a_{t}.

Centripetal acceleration is v²/r.

The magnitude of the resultant acceleration is a_{R} = \(\sqrt{a_{t}^{2}+\left(\frac{v^{2}}{r}\right)^{2}}\)

The following velocity-time graph represents a particle moving in the positive x-direction. Analyse its motion from o to 7s calculate the displacement covered and distance traveled by the particle from 0 to 2s.

Solution:

From o to A(o to Is):

At t = os the particle has a zero velocity at t > 0 the particle has a negative velocity and moves in positive x-direction the slope dr/dt is negative. The particle is decelerating. Thus the velocity decreases during this time interval.

From A to B (Is to 2s):

From time Is to 2s the velocity increase and slope dv/dt becomes positive. The particle is accelerating. The velocity increases in this time interval.

From B to C (2s to 5s):

From 2s to 5s the velocity stays constant at 1 m/s. The acceleration is zero.

From C to D (6s to 7s):

From 5s to 6s the velocity decreases. Slope dv/dt is negative. The particle is decelerating. The velocity decreases to zero. The body comes to rest at 6s.

From D to E (6s to 7s)

The particle is at rest during this time interval.

Displacement: in 0 – 2s:

The total area under the curve from 0 to 2s displacement = 1/2bh + 1/2bh

=1/2 x 1.5 x (- 2) + 0.5 x 1

(a) T\(\hat{j}\) – mg\(\hat{j}\) = ma\(\hat{j}\)

T – mg = ma

(b) \(\overline{T}\) + \(\overline{F}\) = \(\overline{A}\) + \(\overline{B}\)

Question 15.

If the earth completes one revolution in 24 hours, what is the angular displacement made by the earth in one hour? Express your answer in both radian and degree.

Solution:

ω = θ/t θ = wt

In 24 hours, angular displacement made

θ = 360° (or) 2π rad

In 1 hours, angular displacement

θ = \(\frac { 360° }{ 24 }\)

θ = 15°

In radian θ = \(\frac { 2π }{ 24 }\) = \(\frac { π }{ 12 }\) radians.

θ = \(\frac { π }{ 12 }\) rad.

Question 17.

A football player hits the ball with a speed 20m/s with angle 30° with respect to as shown in the figure horizontal directions. The goal post is at a distance of 40 m from him. Find out whether the ball reaches the goal post.

Solution :

In order to find whether the ball is reaching the goal post the range should be equal to 40m so range

= \(\frac { 692.8 }{ 19.6 }\)

= 35.35 m.

Which is less than the distance of the goal post which is 40 m away so the ball won’t reach the goal post.

Question 18.

If an object is thrown horizontally with an initial speed 10 ms^{-1} from the top of a building of height 100 m. What is the horizontal distance covered by the particle?

Solution:

Solution :

ω = π/12 rad/s

ω = θ/t

θ = w x t = π/12 x 4

θ = π/3 radian

θ = \(\frac { 180° }{ 3 }\)

= 60°

(b) 4m southeast and 3m up.

(c) 2m northwest and 4m up.

Solution:

5m northeast and 2m up.

(a) The vector representation of 5m N-E and 2m up is (5i + 5j) Cos 45° + 2\(\hat{k}\)

(b) 4m south east and 3m up.

The vector representing 4m south east and 3m up is

(4i – 4j) cos 45 + 3\(\hat{k}\)

\(\frac{4(i-j)}{\sqrt{2}}\) + 3\(\hat{k}\)

= \(\frac { 360° }{ 27 }\)

θ = 13.3°

Question 22.

An object of mass m has an angular acceleration ∝ = 0.2 rad/s². What is the angular displacement covered by the object after 3 seconds? (Assume that the object started with angle zero with zero angular velocity)

Solution:

∝ = 0.2 rad/s²

θ = ? t = 3s.

w_{0} = 0

w.k.T θ = ω_{0}t + 1/2 ∝ t²

θ = 0 + 1/2 x 0.2 x 9

θ = 0.9 rad

II. Long Answer Questions:

Question 1.

What are the different types of motion? State one example for each & explain.

Answer:

The different types of motions are:

a) Linear motion: An object is said to be in linear motion if it moves in a straight line.

Example: An athlete running on a straight tack.

b) Circular motion: It is defined as a motion described by an object traveling a circular path.

Example: The motion of a satellite around the earth

C) Rotational motion: If any object moves in a rotational motion about an axis the motion is rotational motion. During rotation, every point in the object traverses a circular path about an axis.

Example: Spiring of earth about its own axis

D) Vibratory motion: If an object or a particle executes to and fro motion about the fixed point it is said to be in vibratory motion. Sometimes called oscillatory motion.

Example: Vibration of a string on a Guitar.

Question 2.

How will you differentiate motion in one dimension, two dimensions, and in three dimensions?

Answer:

Motion in one dimension: One-dimensional motion is the motion of a particle moving along a straight line.

Example: An object falling freely under gravity close to the earth.

Motion in two dimensions: If a particle is moving along a curved path in-plane, then it is said to be in two-dimensional motion.

Example: Motion of a coin in a carom board.

Motion in three dimensions: A particle moving in usual three-dimensional space has three-dimensional motion.

Example: A bird flying in the sky.

Question 3.

State and define different types of vectors.

Answer:

The different types of vectors are:

1. Equal vectors:

Two vectors \(\vec{A}\) & \(\vec{B}\) are said to be equal when they have equal magnitude and same direction and represent the same physical quantity.

(a) Coilinear vectors: Collinear vectors are those which act along the same line. The angle between them can be 0° or 180°

(i) Parallel vectors – If two vectors \(\vec{A}\) & \(\vec{B}\) act in the same direction along the same line or in parallel lines. Angle between them is equal to zero

(ii) Antiparallel vectors:

Two vectors \(\vec{A}\) & \(\vec{B}\) are said to be antiparallel when they are in opposite direction along the same line or in parallel lines. The angle between them is 180°

2. Unit vector:

A vector divided by its own magnitude is a unit vector.

The unit vector of \(\vec{A}\) is represented as \(\hat{A}\)

Its magnitude is equal to 1 or unity

3. Orthogonal unit vectors:

Let \(\hat{i}\), \(\hat{j}\), \(\hat{k}\) be three unit vectors which specify the direction along positive x-axis, positive y-axis and positive z-axis respectively. These three unit vectors are directly perpendicular to each other

The angle between any two of them is 90°. Then \(\hat{i}\), \(\hat{j}\), \(\hat{k}\) are examples of orthogonal vectors. Two vectors which are perpendicular to each other are called orthogonal vectors.

Question 4.

Explain how two vectors are subtracted when they are inclined to an angle θ.

Let \(\overline{A}\) and \(\overline{B}\) be non zero vectors inclined at an angle θ.

The difference \(\overline{A}\) – \(\overline{B}\) can be obtained as follows.

First obtain – \(\overline{B}\)

The angle between \(\overline{A}\) – \(\overline{B}\)

= 180 – θ.

The difference \(\overline{A}\) – \(\overline{B}\) is the same as the resultant of \(\overline{A}\) – – \(\overline{B}\)

[∵ cos 180 – θ = – cos θ]

(cos 180 – θ = – cos θ)

The gives the resultant magnitude. The resultant is inclined by an angle α_{2} to \(\overline{A}\)

This gives the direction of the resultant. \(\vec{A}\) – \(\vec{B}\)

Question 5.

Write short notes on relative velocity.

Answer:

When two objects A and B are moving with uniform velocities then the velocity of one object A with respect to another object B is called the relative velocity of A with respect to B.

Case 1:

Consider two objects A and B moving with uniform velocities \(\overline{V}\)_{A} and \(\overline{V}\)_{B} along straight line in same direction with respect to ground.

The relative velocity of object A with respect to object B is \(\vec{V}\)_{AB} = \(\vec{V}\)_{A} – \(\vec{V}\)_{B}

The relative velocity of object B with respect to object A is \(\vec{V}\)_{BA} = \(\vec{V}\)_{B} –\(\overline{V}\)_{A}

Thus, if two objects are moving it’s the same direction the magnitude of the relative velocity of one object with respect to another is equal to the difference in magnitude of the two velocities.

Case 2:

Consider two objects A and B moving with uniform velocities VA and VB along the same track in the opposite direction

The relative velocity of object A with respect to B is

\(\overline{V}\)_{AB} = \(\overline{V}\)_{A} – ( – \(\overline{V}\)_{B}) = \(\overline{V}\)_{A} + \(\overline{V}\)_{B}

The relative velocity of object B with respect to A is

\(\vec{V}\)_{BA} = – \(\vec{V}\)_{B} – \(\vec{V}\)_{A}) = – ( \(\vec{V}\)_{A} + \(\vec{V}\)_{B} )

Thus if two objects are moving in opposite directions the magnitude of relative velocity of one object with respect to other is equal to the sum of magnitudes of their velocities.

Case 3:

Consider two objects A&B moving with velocities VA and VB at an angle 0 between their directions, then the relative velocity of A with respect to B

tan θ = (β is the angle between \(\overline{V}\)_{AB} and VB)

Special cases:

(i) When θ = 0, the bodies move along parallel straight lines in the same direction.

V_{AB} = (V_{A} – V_{B}) in the direction of V_{A}.

V_{BA} = (V_{B} – V_{A}) in the direction of V_{B}

(ii) When θ = 180° the bodies move along parallel straight lines in opposite direction.

V_{AB} = V_{A} – (- V_{B}) = (V_{A} + V_{B}) in the direction of V_{A}

V_{BA} = ( V_{B} + V_{A}) in the direction of V_{B}

(iii) If the two bodies are moving at right angles to each other, then θ = 90°

V_{AB} = \(\sqrt{V_{A}^{2}+V_{B}^{2}}\)

(iv) Consider a person moving horizontally with velocity \(\vec{V}\)_{m} Let the rain fall vertically with velocity \(\overline{V}\)_{R}.

An umbrella is held to avoid the rain.

Then relative velocity \(\overline{V}\)_{M} of rain with respect to man is

Question 6.

Explain Horizontal projection. Derive the equation for its motion, horizontal range & time of flight.

Answer:

Consider an object thrown horizontally with an initial velocity u, from atop of a tower of height h. The horizontal velocity remains constant throughout its motion and the vertical component of velocity go on increases. The constant acceleration acting along the downward direction is g. The horizontal distance travelled is x(t) = x and the vertical distance travelled is y(t)=y. since the motion is two-dimensional the velocity will have both horizontal (u_{x}) and vertical (u_{y}) components.

Motion along horizontal direction:

The particle has zero acceleration along the x-direction and so initial velocity ux remains constant throughout its motion.

The distance travelled by projectile in a time’t’ is given by

x = ut+1/2 at²

x = u_{x}t → (1)

Motion along vertical direction

Here uy =0, a = g, s = y

S = ut + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) at²

y = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) gt² → (2)

from (1) t = x/u_{x} sub in equation (2)

y = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) g (x/ux)²

y = k x² Where k = \(\frac{g}{2 u_{x}^{2}}\) .x²

This equation resemble the equation of a parabola. Thus the path followed by the projectile is a parabola.

Expression for time of flight:

The time taken for the projectile to complete its trajectory is called the time of flight.

Let h be the height of the tower or the vertical distance traversed.

Let T be the time of flight w.k. S = ut + 1/2 at²

here s = y = h, u = u_{y}, t = T, a = g

T depends on height of tower or vertical distance & independent of Horizontal velocity.

Expression for Horizontal Range:

The horizontal distance covered by the projectile from the foot of the tower to the point where the projectile hits the ground it called horizontal range.

w. k. t, S = ut + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) at²

Here,

t = T, a = 0, S = x = R, u = u_{x}

Hence R ∝ u ∝ & R ∝ \(\frac{1}{\sqrt{g}}\)

Question 7.

Obtain an expression for resultant velocity and the speed of the projectile when it hits the ground in case of a horizontal projection.

Answer:

At any instant t, the projectile has velocity components along both the x and y-axis.

The velocity component at any time t along with horizontal component V_{x} = u → (1)

Speed of the projectile when it hits the ground:

When the projectile hits the ground after thrown horizontally from top of tower of height h, the time of flight is T = \(\sqrt{\frac{2 h}{g}}\)

The horizontal component of velocity V_{x} = u

The vertical component of velocity

Conceptual Questions:

Question 1.

Can a body have a constant speed and still have varying velocity?

Answer:

Yes, a particle in uniform circular motion has a constant speed but varying velocity because of the change in its direction of motion at every point.

Question 2.

When an observer is standing on earth appear the trees and houses appear stationary to him. However, when he is sitting in a moving bus or a train all objects appears to move in a backward direction why?

Answer:

For a stationary observer, the relative velocity of trees and houses is zero. For the observer sitting in the moving train, the relative velocity of houses and trees are negative. So these objects appear to move in the backward direction.

Question 3.

Draw position-time graphs for two objects having zero relative velocity?

Answer:

As relative velocity is zero the two bodies A and B have equal velocities. Hence their position-time graphs are parallel straight lines, equally inclined to the time axis.

Question 4.

Can a body be at rest as well as in motion at the same time? Explain.

(OR)

Rest and motion are relative terms. Explain.

Answer:

Yes, the object may be at rest relative to one object and at the same time if maybe in motion relative to another object.

For example, a passenger sitting in a moving train is at rest with respect to his fellow passengers but he is in motion with respect to the objects outside the train. Hence rest and motion are relative terms.

Question 5.

Use integration technique to prove that the distance travelled in-the n^{th} second of motion is S_{th} =u + \(\frac { a }{ 2 }\) (2n – 1)

Answer:

By definition of velocity v = \(\frac { ds }{ dt }\)

ds = Vdt = (u + at) dt → (1)

when t = (n – 1) second, let distance travelled = S_{n-1}

when t = n, second, let distance travelled = S_{n}

Question 6.

An old lady holding a purse in her hand was crossing the road. She was feeling difficulty in walking. A pickpocket snatched the purse from her and started running away. Can seeing this incident Suresh decided to help that old lady. He informed the police inspector who was standing nearby the inspector chased the pickpocketed and caught hold of him. He collected the purse from the pickpocket and gave back the purse to the old lady.

a) What were the values displayed by Suresh?

b) A police jeep is chasing with a velocity of 45 km/h. A thief in another jeep is moving at 155 km/hr. Police fire a bullet strike the jeep of the thief?

Answer:

The values displayed by Suresh are the presence of mind, helping tendency, and also a sense of social responsibility.

Relative velocity of the bullet with respect to thief’s Jeep = (Vb + Vp)-Vt.

= 180 m/s + 45 km/hr – 155 km/hr

= 180 m/s – 110 x 5/18 m/s

= 180 – 30.5

= 149.5 m/s.

Question 7.

A stone is thrown vertically upwards and then it returns to the thrower. Is it projective?

Answer:

No. It is not a projectile. A projectile should have two-component velocities in two mutually perpendicular directions. But in this case, body has a velocity in only one direction.

Question 8.

Can two non-zero vectors give zero resultant when they multiply with each other?

Answer:

If yes condition for the same. Yes. for example, the cross product of two non-zero vectors will be zero when θ = 0 or θ = 180°.

Question 9.

Justify that a uniform motion is an accelerated motion.

Answer:

In a uniform circular motion, the speed of the body remains the same but the direction of motion changes at every point.

Fig. shows the different velocity vectors at different positions of the particle. At each position, the velocity vector V is perpendicular to the radius vector. Thus the velocity of the body changes continuously due to the continuous change in the direction of motion of the body. As the rate of change is of velocity is acceleration a uniform circular motion is an accelerated motion.

Question 10.

State polygon law of vector addition.

Answer:

If a number of vectors are represented both in magnitude and direction by the sides of an open polygon taken in the same order then their resultant is represented both in magnitude arid direction by the closing side of the polygon taken in the opposite order.
