Q. A cylindrical vessel of height 500 mm has an orifice (small hole) at its bottom. The orifice is initially closed and water is filled in it up to height H. Now the top is completely sealed with a cap and the orifice at the bottom is opened. Some water comes out from the orifice and the water level in the vessel becomes steady with height of water column being 200 mm. Find the fall in height (in mm) of water level due to opening of the orifice. [Take atmospheric pressure = $1.0 \times 10^{5} \mathrm{N} / \mathrm{m}^{2},$ density of water $=1000 \mathrm{kg} / \mathrm{m}^{3}$ and g = $10 \mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s}^{2}$ .

Paragraph for Questions no. 3 to 5 When liquid medicine of density  is to be put in the eye, it is done with the help of a dropper. As the bulb on the top of the dropper is pressed, a drop forms at the opening of the dropper. We wish to estimate the size of the drop. We first assume that the drop formed at the opening is spherical because that requires a minimum increase in its surface energy. To determine the size, we calculate the net vertical force due to the surface tension T when the radius of the drop is R. When this force becomes smaller than the weight of the drop, the drop gets detached from the dropper.
Q. If the radius of the opening of the dropper is r, the vertical force due to the surface tension on the drop of radius R (assuming r < [IIT-JEE-2010]

Phase space diagrams are useful tools in analyzing all kinds of dynamical problems. They are especially useful in studying the changes in motion as initial position and momentum are changed. Here we consider some simple dynamical systems in one-dimension. For such systems, phase space is a plane in which position is plotted along horizontal axis and momentum is plotted along vertical axis. The phase space diagram is x(t) vs. p(t) curve in this plane. The arrow on the curve indicates the time flow. For example, the phase space diagram for a particle moving with constant velocity is a straight line as shown in the figure. We use the sign convention in which position or momentum upwards (or to right) is positive and downwards (or to left) is negative.

Ans. (A,D) For system At equilibrium $2 f_{b}=\frac{4}{3} \pi R^{3} \rho g+\frac{4}{3} \pi R^{3}(3 \rho) g$ $2 \mathrm{f}_{\mathrm{b}}=\frac{16}{3} \pi \mathrm{R}^{3} \rho \mathrm{g}=2 \rho\left(\mathrm{v}_{\text {submerged }}\right) \mathrm{g}$ $\Rightarrow \mathrm{v}_{\text {submerged }}=\frac{8}{3} \pi \mathrm{R}^{3}$ $\Rightarrow$ light sphere is completely submerged Also for one sphere $\frac{4}{3} \pi \mathrm{R}^{3}(2 \rho) \mathrm{g}=\mathrm{kx}+\frac{4}{3} \pi \mathrm{R}^{3} \rho \mathrm{g}$ $\Rightarrow \mathrm{x}=\frac{4 \pi \mathrm{R}^{3} \rho \mathrm{g}}{3 \mathrm{k}}$

Match the statements from List I with those in List II and select the correct answer using the code given below the lists. [JEE Advanced-2014]
Ans. (C) Since $\mathrm{g}_{\mathrm{eff}}$ cancelled out therefore distance will be same in case P, Q and R. When lift falls freely no water leaks out of Jar.

The spheres are connected by a massless string and placed in liquids $\mathrm{L}_{1}$ and $\mathrm{L}_{2}$ of densities $\sigma_{1}$ and $\sigma_{2}$ and viscosities $\eta_{1}$ and $\eta_{2}$, respectively.

The surface tension of water is $\sigma$. The angle of contact between water and the wall of the capillary tube is $\theta$. Ignore the mass of water in the meniscus. Which of the following statements is (are) true? (A) For a given material of the capillary tube, h decreases with increase in r (B) For a given material of the capillary tube, h is independent of $\sigma$.

Ans. (A,C) Field due to straight wire is perpendicular to the wire & radially outward. Hence $\mathrm{E}_{z}=0$ Length, $\mathrm{PQ}=2 \mathrm{R} \sin 60=\sqrt{3} \mathrm{R}$According to Gauss's law total flux $=\left[\int \overrightarrow{\mathrm{E}} \cdot \overrightarrow{\mathrm{ds}}=\frac{\mathrm{q}_{\mathrm{in}}}{\epsilon_{0}}=\frac{\lambda \sqrt{3} \mathrm{R}}{\epsilon_{0}}\right.$
Q. Consider a thin square plate floating on a viscous liquid in a large tank. The height h of the liquid in the tank is much less than the width of the tank. The floating plate is pulled horizontally with a constant velocity $\mathrm{u}_{0}$. Which of the following statements is (are) true ? (A) The resistive force of liquid on the plate is inversely proportional to h (B) The resistive force of liquid on the plate is independent of the area of the plate (C) The tangential (shear) stress on the floor of the tank increases with $\mathrm{u}_{0}$. (D) The tangential (shear) stress on the plate varies linearly with the viscosity $\eta$ of the liquid. [JEE Advanced-2018]
Ans. (A,C,D) Viscous force is given by F = $-\eta \mathrm{A} \frac{\mathrm{dv}}{\mathrm{dy}}$ since h is very small therefore, magnitude of viscous force is given by $\mathrm{F}=\eta \mathrm{A} \frac{\Delta \mathrm{v}}{\Delta \mathrm{y}}$ $\therefore \mathrm{F}=\frac{\eta \mathrm{Au}_{0}}{\mathrm{h}} \Rightarrow \mathrm{F} \propto \eta \& \mathrm{F} \propto \mathrm{u}_{0} \quad ; \quad \mathrm{F} \propto \frac{1}{\mathrm{h}}, \mathrm{F} \propto \mathrm{A}$ Since plate is moving with constant velocity, same force must be acting on the floor.
