Q. Derive an expression for stopping distance of a vehicle in terms of initial velocity and deceleration a. [NCERT]

Download eSaral App for Video Lectures, Complete Revision, Study Material and much more...

Sol. Let $\mathrm{d}_{\mathrm{s}}$ be the distance travelled by a vehicle before it stops. Using $\mathrm{v}^{2}-\mathrm{u}^{2}=2 \mathrm{aS},$ we get, $0^{2}-\mathrm{v}_{0}^{2}=-2 \mathrm{ad}_{\mathrm{s}}$ $\mathrm{d}_{\mathrm{s}}=\frac{\mathrm{v}_{0}^{2}}{2 \mathrm{a}}$ The stopping distance is proportional to the square of the initial velocity. Doubling the initial velocity increase the stopping distance by a factor $4,$ provided deceleration is kept the same.

Q. Explain clearly, with examples, the distinction between : (a) magnitude of displacement (sometimes called distance) over an interval of time, and the total length of path covered by a particle over the same interval; (b) magnitude of average velocity over an interval of time, and the average speed over the same interval. [Average speed of a particle over an interval of time is defined as the total path length divided by the time interval]. Show in both (a) and (b) that the second quantity is either greater than or equal to the first. When is the quality sign true? [NCERT]

Sol. (a) Consider a particle which moves form $A$ to $B$ and then back to $A$. In this case, the magnitude of displacement is zero. This is because the magnitude of displacement is equal to the shorteddistance between initial and final positions of the particle. If $B$ is separated from $A$ by a distance $x$, then the total path length travelled by the particle is $2 x$. (b) Average velocity $=\frac{\text { Displacement }}{\text { Time }}=\frac{0}{t}=0$ Average speed $=\frac{\text { Total path length }}{\text { Corresponding time interval }}=\frac{2 x}{t}$

Q. Derive three equations of motion by calculus method. Express conditions under which they can be used.

Sol. (1) $\mathrm{v}=\mathrm{u}+\mathrm{at}$ : Let any instant $t$, the velocity of a particle is $v$ $\therefore$ Acceleration, $a=\frac{d v}{d t} \Rightarrow d v=a d t$ Let at $t=0, v=u$ $\therefore$ Integrating equation (i), we get $\int_{u}^{v} d v=\int_{0}^{t} a d t \Rightarrow \int_{u}^{v} d v=a \int_{0}^{t} d t \quad \therefore[v]_{u}^{v}=a[t]_{0}^{t}$ $\therefore(\mathrm{v}-\mathrm{u})=\mathrm{a}(\mathrm{t}-0) \Rightarrow \mathrm{v}-\mathrm{u}=\mathrm{at} \Rightarrow \mathrm{v}=\mathrm{u}+\mathrm{at}$ (2) $\mathrm{s}=\mathrm{ut}+\frac{1}{2} \mathrm{at}^{2}:$ Let a particle is moving with velocity $u,$ along $X$ -axis and at any instant $t,$ its displacement is $x$ $\therefore \mathrm{v}=\frac{\mathrm{d} \mathrm{x}}{\mathrm{dt}} \Rightarrow \mathrm{dx}=\mathrm{v} \mathrm{dt}$ Also, we know that, $\mathrm{v}=\mathrm{u}+\mathrm{at}$ $\therefore \mathrm{dx}=(\mathrm{u}+\mathrm{at}) \mathrm{dt}$ —–(i) Now, at $\mathrm{t}=0, \mathrm{x}=\mathrm{x}_{0}$ $\therefore$ Integrating equation (i), we get $\int_{x_{0}}^{x} d x=\int_{0}^{t}(u+a t) d t \Rightarrow[x]_{x_{0}}^{x}=\int_{0}^{t} u d t+\int_{0}^{t} a t d t$ $\Rightarrow \quad \mathrm{x}-\mathrm{x}_{0}=\mathrm{u}[\mathrm{t}]_{0}^{\mathrm{t}}+\mathrm{a}\left[\frac{\mathrm{t}^{2}}{2}\right]_{0}^{\mathrm{t}}$ $\Rightarrow \quad \mathrm{x}-\mathrm{x}_{0}=\mathrm{u}(\mathrm{t}-0)+\mathrm{a}\left(\frac{\mathrm{t}^{2}}{2}-0\right)$ $\Rightarrow \mathrm{x}-\mathrm{x}_{0}=\mathrm{ut}+\frac{1}{2} \mathrm{at}^{2}$ But, $\mathrm{x}-\mathrm{x}_{0}=\mathrm{s} \quad \therefore \mathrm{s}=\mathrm{ut}+\frac{1}{2} \mathrm{at}^{2}$ (3) $\mathrm{v}^{2}=\mathrm{u}^{2}+2 \mathrm{as} \quad:$ Now we know that, $\mathrm{a}=\frac{\mathrm{dv}}{\mathrm{dt}}=\frac{\mathrm{dv}}{\mathrm{dx}} \times \frac{\mathrm{dx}}{\mathrm{dt}}$ $\therefore \mathrm{a}=\frac{\mathrm{dv}}{\mathrm{dx}} \cdot \mathrm{v} \Rightarrow \mathrm{a} \mathrm{dx}=\mathrm{v} \mathrm{dv}\left[\because \mathrm{v}=\frac{\mathrm{dx}}{\mathrm{dt}}\right]$ Now limits, when $\mathrm{t}=0, \mathrm{x}=\mathrm{x}_{0}$ and $\mathrm{v}=\mathrm{u} \ldots \ldots$ –(i) And when $\mathrm{t}=\mathrm{t}, \mathrm{x}=\mathrm{x}$ and $\mathrm{v}=\mathrm{v}$ Integrating the equation (i), we get $\int_{x_{0}}^{x} a d x=\int_{u}^{v} v d v \Rightarrow a[x]_{x_{0}}^{x}=\left[\frac{v^{2}}{2}\right]_{u}^{v}$ $\Rightarrow \mathrm{a}\left(\mathrm{x}-\mathrm{x}_{0}\right)=\left[\frac{\mathrm{v}^{2}}{2}-\frac{\mathrm{u}^{2}}{2}\right]$ But, $\mathrm{x}-\mathrm{x}_{0}=\mathrm{s}$ $\therefore \quad \mathrm{as}=\frac{\mathrm{v}^{2}-\mathrm{u}^{2}}{2} \Rightarrow \mathrm{v}^{2}-\mathrm{u}^{2}=2 \mathrm{as}$ $\therefore \mathrm{v}^{2}=\mathrm{u}^{2}+2 \mathrm{as}$

Sol. $\mathrm{v}=\frac{\mathrm{dx}}{\mathrm{dt}}=\frac{\mathrm{d}}{\mathrm{dt}}\left(\mathrm{a}+\mathrm{bt}^{2}\right)=2 \mathrm{bt}=5.0 \mathrm{tms}^{-1}$ At $\mathrm{t}=-\mathrm{s}, \mathrm{v}=0 \mathrm{ms}^{-1}$ and at $\mathrm{t}=2 \mathrm{s}, \mathrm{v}=10 \mathrm{ms}^{-1}$ Average Velocity =$\frac{x(4)-x(2)}{4-2}=\frac{a+16 b-a-4 b}{2}=6 b$ $=6 \times 2.5=15.0 \mathrm{ms}^{-1}$

Q. A jet air plane travelling at the speed of ejects its products of combustion at the speed to relative to the jet plane. What is the speed of the combustion products w.r.t. an observer on the ground? [NCERT]

Download eSaral App for Video Lectures, Complete Revision, Study Material and much more...

Sol. Speed of combustion product w.r.t. observer on the ground $=?$ Velocity of jet air plane w.r.t. observer on ground $=500 \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}$ If $\overrightarrow{\mathrm{v}}_{\mathrm{j}}$ and $\overrightarrow{\mathrm{v}}_{\mathrm{o}}$ represent the velocities of jet and observer respectively, then $\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{j}}-\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{o}}=500 \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}$ Similarly, If $\vec{v}_{\mathrm{c}}$ represents the velocity of the combustion products $w \cdot r .$ jet plane, then, $\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{c}}-\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{j}}=-1500 \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}$ The negative sign indicates that the combustion products move in a direction opposite to that of jet. Speed of combustion products w.r.t. observer $=v_{c}-v_{o}=\left(v_{c}-v_{j}\right)+\left(v_{j}-v_{o}\right)$ $=(-1500+500) \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}=-1000 \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}$

Q. A police van moving on a highway with a speed of fires a bullet at a thief’s car speeding away in the same direction with a speed of . If the muzzle speed of the bullet is , with what speed does the bullet hit the thief’s car? [NCERT]

Download eSaral App for Video Lectures, Complete Revision, Study Material and much more...

Sol. Speed of bullet, $v_{b}=$ speed of police vant speed with which bullet is actually fired $\therefore \quad v_{b}=\left(\frac{25}{3}+150\right) \mathrm{ms}^{-1}=\frac{475}{3} \mathrm{ms}^{-1}$ Relative velocity of bullet w.r.t. thief’s car, $\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{bt}}=\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{b}}-\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{t}}=\left(\frac{475}{3}-\frac{160}{3}\right) \mathrm{ms}^{-1}=105 \mathrm{ms}^{-1}$”

Q. Four persons K, L, M and start from the vertices of a square of side , simultaneously and move towards the neighbour in order always with the same speed of . When and where do they meet. [NCERT]

Download eSaral App for Video Lectures, Complete Revision, Study Material and much more...

Sol. As $K, L, M$ and $N$ move towards the next person in order after a short time they will be at $K^{\prime}, L^{\prime}$ $M^{\prime}$ and $N^{\prime}$ respectively. The size to the square reduces. It indicates that they have come closer. After next short interval if they are at $K^{\prime \prime}, L^{\prime \prime}$ $M^{\prime \prime}$ and $N^{\prime \prime},$ the size of the square further reduces. Finally, they will follow a curvi-linear path and meet at $O,$ the centre of the square. We know, the time taken $=\frac{\text { displacement }}{\text { Velocity in the direction of displacement }}$   $\therefore \quad \mathrm{t}=\frac{\mathrm{LO}}{\left(\frac{\mathrm{v}}{\sqrt{2}}\right)}=\frac{\frac{\mathrm{a}}{\sqrt{2}}}{\frac{\mathrm{v}}{\sqrt{2}}}=\frac{\mathrm{a}}{\mathrm{v}}$

Q. On a two-lane road, car is travelling with a speed of . Two cars and approach car in opposite directions with a speed of each. At a certain instant, when distance.

Sol. Speed of child with respect to belt =9 $\mathrm{kmh}^{-1}$; Speed of belt = 4 $\mathrm{kmh}^{-1}$ (a) When the child runs in the direction of motion Of the belt, then speed of child w.r.t. stationary observer $=(9+4) \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}=13 \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}$ (b) When the child runs opposite to the direction of motion of the belt, then speed of child writ. stationary observer $=(9-4) \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}=5 \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}$ (c) Speed of child w.rt. either parent $=9 \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}$ Distance to be covered $=50 \mathrm{m}=0.05 \mathrm{km} ;$ Time $=\frac{0.05 \mathrm{km}}{9 \mathrm{kmh}^{-1}}=0.0056 \mathrm{h} \approx 20 \mathrm{s}$ If the motion is viewed by one of the parents, then the answers to (a) and (b) are altered but answer to (c) remains unaltered.

Sol. (a) $\mathrm{v}(0)=49 \mathrm{ms}^{-1}, \mathrm{a}=-9.8 \mathrm{ms}^{-2}, \mathrm{v}(\mathrm{t})=0, \mathrm{t}=?$ $\mathrm{v}(\mathrm{t})=\mathrm{v}(0)+\mathrm{at}$ $\Rightarrow \quad 0=49-9.8 \mathrm{t} \Rightarrow 9.8 \mathrm{t}=49 \Rightarrow \mathrm{t}=\frac{49}{9.8} \mathrm{s}=5 \mathrm{s}$ This is the time taken by the ball to reach the maximum height. The time of descent is also 5 s. So, the total time after which the ball comes back is $5 s+5 s$ i.e., $10 s$ (b) The uniform velocity of the lift does not change the relative motion of ball and lift. So, the ball would take the same total time $i . e .,$ it would come back after 10 second.

Q. A woman starts from her home at $9.00 A M,$ walks with a speed pf on a straight road up to her office away, stays at the office up to and returns home by an auto with a speed of . Choose suitable scales and plot the graph of the motion. [NCERT]

Sol. If $O$ is regarded as the origin for both time and distance, then At $\mathrm{t}=9.00 \mathrm{AM}, \mathrm{x}=0$ and, at $\mathrm{t}=9.30 \mathrm{AM}, \mathrm{x}=2.5 \mathrm{km}$ OA is the $\mathrm{x}-\mathrm{t}$ graph of the motion when the woman walks from her home to office. Her stay in the office from $9.30 \mathrm{AM}$ to $5.00 \mathrm{PM}$ is represented by the straight line $A B$ in the graph. Now, time taken to return home by an auto = $\frac{2.5}{25} \mathrm{h}=\frac{1}{10} \mathrm{h}=6$ minuteSo, at $\mathrm{t}=5.06 \mathrm{PM}, \mathrm{x}=0$

In above question ” Can A body has zero velocity but it yet possesses acceleration?”

The answer of the above question written in your website is “Yes” which is wrong because a projectile’s velocity would never zero as long as it is in the air. Its vertical Component might be zero but horizontal component of the velocity remains constant during the whole flight. so correct this or otherwise explain my objection..?
