4. The distance-time graph of the motion of an object is given. Find the average speed and maximum speed of the object during the motion

Ans:  DO yourself.

5. The distance travelled by an object at different times is given in the table below. Draw a distance-time graph and calculate the average speed of the object. State whether the motion of the object is uniform or non-uniform.

Ans:  Average speed = 0.2 ms–1, motion is uniform motion.

6. A player completes his half of the race in 60 minutes and the next half of the race in 40 minutes. If he covers a total distance of 1200 m, find his average speed.

Ans: To find the average speed of the player, we can use the formula:

Average speed = Total distance / Total time

Given that the total distance covered by the player is 1200 metres, and the total time taken is the sum of the time taken for the first half and the time taken for the second half:

Total time = 60 minutes + 40 minutes = 100 minutes

Converting the total time to hours:

Total time = 100 minutes / 60 minutes per hour = 5/3 hours

Now, we can calculate the average speed:

Average speed = 1200 metres / (5/3 hours)

≈ 720 metres per hour.

7. A train has to cover a distance of 1200 km in 16 h. The first 800 km are covered by the train in 10 h. What should be the speed of the train to cover the rest of the distance? Also find the average speed of the train.

Ans: Given:

Total distance to be covered = 1200 km.

Time taken to cover the first 800 km = 10 hours

So, the remaining distance to cover = Total distance – Distance covered in the first leg

Remaining distance = 1200 km – 800 km = 400 km

Time taken to cover the remaining distance = Total time – Time taken for the first leg

Time taken = 16 hours – 10 hours = 6 hours

Now, to find the speed for covering the remaining 400 km:

Speed = Distance / Time

Speed = 400 km / 6 hours = 66.67 km/h

So, the speed of the train to cover the remaining distance is 66.67 km/h.

To find the average speed of the train

Average speed = Total distance / Total time

Average speed = 1200 km / 16 hours

Average speed = 75 km/h

So, the average speed of the train is 75 km/h.

8. A bird flies from a tree A to the tree B with the speed of 40 km h–1 and returns to tree A from tree B with the speed of 60 km h–1. What is the average speed of the bird during this journey?

Ans: . 63 km h–1.

3. Does the direction of velocity decide the direction of acceleration?

Ans: Yes, the velocity direction is decided the direction of the acceleration.

4. Establish the relation between acceleration and distance travelled by the body.

Ans: The relation between the acceleration and distance travelled of the body is moving at constant velocity, the distance travelled is simply the velocity multiplied by one second.  This is the formula given in a lot of the answers: d = u+ 1/2 a(2n-1) where d is the displacement, u is the initial velocity, a is the acceleration.

5. Explain whether or not the following particles have acceleration:

(i) a particle moving in a straight line with constant speed, and

(ii) a particle moving on a curve with constant speed.

Ans: The particle moving in a straight line with constant speed does not accelerate, while the particle moving along a curve experiences acceleration. By Newton’s first law of motion, a body in motion does not change direction unless an external force (depicted as an acceleration) acts on it.

6. Consider the following combination of signs for velocity and acceleration of an object with respect to a one dimensional motion along x-axis and give example from real life situation for each case.

Ans:

7. A car travelling initially at 7 ms–1 accelerates at the rate of 8.0 ms–2 for an interval of 2.0 s. What is its velocity at the end of the 2 s?

Ans: As we all know, V = u + at,

Where, v = final velocity, u = initial velocity = 7m /s.a = acceleration = 8.0 m/s^2, t = time=2s.

So, v = 7 + 8×2 = 2.5m/s.

8. A car travelling in a straight line has a velocity of 5.0 ms–1 at some instant. After 4.0 s, its velocity is 8.0 ms–1. What is its average acceleration in this time interval?

Ans: We know, v = u + at.

Here, v = 8 m/s, u = 5m/s, a = ?  T = 4s.

So, average acceleration is = (8-5)/4

= ¾ = 0.75m/s^2.

9. The velocity-time graph for an object moving along a straight line has shown in Fig. 3.32. Find the average acceleration of this object during the time interval 0 to 5.0 s, 5.0 s to 15.0 s and 0 to 20.0 s.

Ans: we know acceleration = velocity / time

0 to 5.0s = -8+8/5-0

5.0 to 15.0 = (8-(8)/5-0 = 16/10 = 1.6 m/s2

0  20.s = +1.6 + 0

= 1.6m/s2.

12. An object is dropped from the height of 19.6 m. Draw the displacement-time graph for time when object reach the ground. Also find velocity of the object when it touches the ground.

Ans: Do yourself.

13. An object is dropped from the height of 19.6 m. Find the distance travelled by object in last second of its journey.

Ans: we know, s = ut + ½ at^2;

Here, a = 9.8; s =19.6; u = 0;

So, 19.6 = 0 + 1/2× 9.8× t^2;

Or, t = 2s.

Distance travelled in n second be, S(n) = u + a/2(2n -1).

Here, n = 2;

So, S(2) = 0 + 9.8/2 × ( 4-1) = 14.7m.

14. Show that for a uniformly accelerated motion starting from velocity u and acquiring velocity v has average velocity equal to arithmetic mean of the initial (u) and final velocity (v).

Ans: Initial velocity = u, final velocity = v,

Let acceleration = a, time = t.

The arithmetic means of initial and final velocity = (v+u)/2.

We know, v = u + at.

Or, t = (v-u)/a.

Here, s = ut + 1/2at^2.

Or, s = (u-v)/a ×((u+v)/2).

Average velocity = s/t = u+ v/ 2.

15. Find the distance, average speed, displacement, average velocity and acceleration of the object whose motion is shown in the graph (Fig. 9.33).
