Question 1.
Why is the motion in a circle at constant speed called accelerated motion?
When a body moves along a circular path with a constant speed, its direction of motion at any point is along the tangent to the circle at that point, this motion called accelerated motion. The direction of motion changes as the body moves in a circle and causes a change in the velocity. Therefore, the motion of an object along a circular path is an accelerated motion.

Question 2.
A satellite revolves round the Earth with uniform speed. Is this motion accelerated? If so, in which direction does the acceleration act?
The velocity of the satellite revolving around the Earth changes due to change in its direction of motion. So, the motion of satellite is an accelerated one. The acceleration is directed towards the centre of the Earth.

Question 3.
What is the difference between uniform linear motion and uniform circular motion?

• When a body is moving with a uniform speed along a straight line, its motion is called linear uniform motion.
• The uniform linear motion is non accelerated motion.
• When a body is moving with a constant speed along a circular path, the direction of motion of body changes continuously with time.
• We know that a change in the direction of motion implies a change in velocity. Thus, uniform circular motion is an accelerated motion even though the speed of the body remains constant. Question 4.
What is the meant by retardation? Give its SI unit.
Or
Give an example of negative acceleration.
Retardation: When the velocity of a body decreases with time, its final velocity is less than the initial velocity, i.e. its acceleration is negative. This negative acceleration is called retardation. The SI unit of retardation is ms-2.
Example: When brakes are applied to a moving car, its velocity gradually decreases. Under these conditions, the car is under retardation.

Write the equations of motion.
There are three equations of motion :
(i) v = u + at
(ii) s = ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2
(iii) 2as = v2 - u2

Question 14.
Define speed. How can we determine the value of average speed?
The distance travelled by the body per unit time is the speed of a body. Its unit is m/s or ms-1.
In most cases, objects make with non-uniform motion. So we describe the rate of motion of such objects in terms of their average speed.
The average speed of the body is the total distance travelled by the total time taken to cover this distance. Question 1.
From the study of velocity-time graph, what conclusion can be drawn for a particle moving in one-dimension? Explain.
If velocity-time graph is a straight line parallel to time axis as shown in figure (a), then it shows the motion of constant velocity. In which the slope of velocity time is equal to the acceleration. Figure (b) has positive slope which shows that the directions of acceleration and velocity are same. And velocity is increasing with the increase in time.
Figure (c) has negative slope which shows that velocity is decreasing. In this situation, the directions of acceleration and velocity are opposite.

The sum of different areas covered under the velocity-time graph between curve and time axis, is equal to the distance-covered by the particle, whereas algebraic sum of their areas is equal to the displacement.

Question 2.
How can we find the displacement using ν-t graph? Explain. The area enclosed by velocity-time graph and time axis is equal to the magnitude of displacement in uniform motion. From graph, the area enclosed by rectangle is equal to the distance covered by particle.

The distance covered in the time interval (t2 - t1) is equal to the displacement. Since the motion is one-dimensional and direction is unchanged.
Therefore,
distance = velocity × time
S = ν (t2 - t1)
= Area of rectangle ABCD Question 3.
Two stones are thrown vertically upwards simultaneously with their initial velocities u1 and u2 respectively. Prove that the heights reached by them would be in the ratio of u12 : u22 (assume upward acceleration is - g and downward acceleration to be + g).
We know for upward motion, ν2 = u2 - 2gh
therefore, h = $$\frac{v^{2}-u^{2}}{2 g}$$
But at highest point v = 0
Therefore, h = $$\frac{u^{2}}{2 g}$$
For first ball, h1 = $$\frac{u_{1}^{2}}{2 g}$$
For second ball, h2 = $$\frac{u_{2}^{2}}{2 g}$$
Thus, $$\frac{h_{1}}{h_{2}}=\frac{u_{1}^{2} / 2 g}{u_{2}^{2} / 2 g}=\frac{u_{1}^{2}}{u_{2}^{2}}$$
or
h1 : h2 = $$u_{1}^{2}: u_{2}^{2}$$
Thus, proved.

Question 4.
Deduce the equations of motion for the uniformly accelerated one-dimensional motion.
If a particle moving with velocity u changes to v in time t, then average acceleration will be
a = $$\frac{v-u}{t}$$ .................(i)
or, v - u = at
or, v = u + at .............(ii)
It is the first equation of motion.
The average velocity of particle is = $$\frac{u+v}{2}$$
From equation (i), we have
average velocity = $$\frac{u+u+a t}{2}$$
= $$\frac{2 u+a t}{2}$$
= u + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at
∴ distance, s = average velocity × time
s = (u + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at) × t
or, s = ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2 .............(iii)
It is the second equation of motion,
From first equation of the motion,
ν = u + at
Taking squares of both the sides,
(ν)2 = (u + at)2
ν2 = u2 + 2 uat + a2t2
= u2 + 2a(ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2)
ν2 = u2 + 2a s [from equation (iii)]
It is the third equation of motion.

Question 5.
Define uniform and non-uniform motion. Deduce the equation of motion with the help of velocity-time graph.
Uniform motion : An object is said to be in uniform motion when it covers equal distance in equal time intervals. ν-t graph for an object moving with unifrom accelerated motion
Non-uniform motion : The motion is said to be non-uniform motion, when the body covers unequal distance in equal intervals of time. ν-t graph for object moving with non-uniformly accelerated motion

Derivation of first equation of motion (velocity-time relation):
The rate of change in velocity is constant in uniform accelerated motion, therefore
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = a = constant
So the graph between velocity and time is a straight line, of which slope is equal to the acceleration. or, tanθ = a
from graph, $$\frac{B C}{C A}$$ = tanθ = a
or, $$\frac{v_{2}-v_{1}}{t_{2}-t_{1}}$$ = a
or, ν2 - ν1 = a (t2 - t1)
or, ν2 = ν1 + a (t2 - t1)
If t1 = 0, ν1 = u, t2 = t and ν2 = v
then ν = u + at ............(i)
This is the first equation of motion.

Derivation of second equation of motion (position-time relation) : Let us consider that the object has travelled a distance s in time t under uniform acceleration a. From graph, the distance travelled by the object is obtained by the area enclosed within OABC under the velocity-time graph AB. Thus, the distance s travelled by the object is given by
s = area of OABC trapezium
= area of rectangle OADC + area of triangle ABD
= OA × OC + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ (AD × BD)
Substituting OA = u, OC = AD = t and BD = at,
We have s = ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$(t × at)
s = ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2 ..............(ii)
This is the second equation of motion.

Derivation of third equation of motion (position-velocity relation) :
∵ s = ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2
Substituting the value of t from equation (i), or, 2as = 2uv - 2a2 + v2 - 2uv + u2
or, 2as = v2 - u2 ..............(iii) Question 6.
Obtain a relation for the distance travelled by an object moving with a uniform acceleration in the interval between 4th and 5th seconds.
(Hint : Use the equation of motion s = (ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2)
Distance travelled in 5 s,
s = u × 5 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × a × (5)2
s = 5u + $$\frac{25}{2}$$a .........(i)
Similarly, distance travelled in 4 s,
s' = 4u + $$\frac{16}{2}$$a ........(ii)
Distance travelled in the interval between 4th and 5th seconds
=(s - s')= (u + $$\frac{9}{2}$$a)m

Question 7.
A bus covers s1 distance with v1 speed and s2 distance with v2 speed. What is the average speed of the bus? If distances are equal to each other then prove that the value of average speed will be $$\frac{2 v_{1} v_{2}}{v_{1}+v_{2}}$$. Where t1 is the time to cover s1 distance and t2 is the time to cover s2 distance. Hence, average speed $$v=\frac{s_{1}+s_{2}}{\left(\frac{s_{1}}{v_{1}}+\frac{s_{2}}{v_{2}}\right)}$$
If both distances are equal, i.e. s1 = s2, bus travels first half of its journey with v1 speed and second half with v2 speed,
thus, average speed = $$\frac{2 v_{1} v_{2}}{v_{1}+v_{2}}$$

Numerical Questions

Question 1.
A person moves along the boundary of a square field of side 10 m in 20 s. What will be the magnitude of displacement of that person at the end of 2 minutes 20 seconds?
Side of square field = 10 m
So, perimeter = 10 m × 4 = 40 m
Person moves along the boundary in 20 sec.
Displacement after 2 m 20 sec = 2 × 60s + 20s = 140 s = ?
Since in 20 s person moves 40 m.
Therefore, in 1 sec distance covered = $$\frac{40}{20}$$ = 2 m
Therefore, in 140 sec distance covered = 2 × 140 = 280 m
Now, number of rotation to cover 280 along the boundary = Hence, after 7 rounds the person will be at the starting point, so displacement will be zero. Question 2.
Neha swims in a 90 m long pool. She covers 180 m in one minute by swimming from one end to the other and back along the same straight path. Find the average speed and average velocity of Neha.
Total distance = 180 m
Total displacement = 0
Time taken t = 1 min = 60 s Question 3.
The average speed of a bicycle, an athlete and car are 18 km/h, 7 m/s and 2 km/ min respectively. Which of the three is the fastest and which is the slowest? Thus, the average speeds of the bicycle, the athlete and the car are 5 m/s, 7 m/s and 33.3 m/s respectively. So, the car is the fastest and the bicycle is the slowest.

Question 4.
Figure represents the speed - time graph for a particle. Find the distance covered by the particle between t = 10 min and t = 30 min. We draw perpendicular lines from the 10-minute point and the 30-minute point to the time-axis (fig. b). The distance covered is equal to the area of the rectangle ABCD, its value is
ABCD = (30 min - 10 min) × (10 km/h)
= 20 min × 10 km/h
= $$\frac{20}{60}$$h × 10 km/h = $$\frac{10}{3}$$km Question 5.
Find the distance covered by a particle during the time interval t = 0 to t = 20 s for which the speed-time graph is shown in figure. The distance covered in the time interval 0 to 20 s is equal to the area of the shaded triangle. So,
Distance = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × base × height
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × (20 s) × (20 m/s) = 200 m.

Question 6.
A bus moves 30 km in 30 min and the next 30 km. in 40 min. Calculate the average speed for the entire journey.
Given, the total time taken is 30 min + 40 min = 70 min and the total distance travelled is 30 km + 30 km = 60 km
The average speed is vav = $$\frac{60 \mathrm{~km}}{70 \mathrm{~min}}$$ = $$\frac{60 \mathrm{~km}}{(70 / 60) \mathrm{h}}$$ = $$\frac{3600}{70}$$ km/hr = 51.4 km/h

Question 7.
A girl runs for 10 min at a uniform speed of 9 km/h. What should be the speed that she runs for the next 20 min, so that the average speed comes to 12 km/h?
Total time = 10 min 20 min = 30 min
The average speed is 12 km/h using s = vt, the distance covered in 30 min is :
12 km/h × 30 min = $$\frac{12 \mathrm{~km}}{\mathrm{~h}}$$ × $$\frac{1}{2}$$h = 6 km
The distance covered in the first 10 min is :
9 km/h × 10 min = $$\frac{9 \mathrm{~km}}{\mathrm{~h}}$$ × $$\frac{1}{6}$$h = 1.5 km
Thus, he has to cover 6 km - 1.5 km = 4.5.km in the next 20 min.
The speed required is : $$\frac{4.5 \mathrm{~km}}{20 \mathrm{~min}}$$ = $$\frac{4.5 \mathrm{~km}}{(20 / 60) \mathrm{h}}$$ = 13.5 km/h.

Question 8.
It is estimated that the. radio signal takes 1.27 seconds to reach the Earth from the surface of the Moon. Calculate the distance of the Moon from the Earth. Speed of radio signal = 3 × 10s ms-1 (speed of light in air).
Here, time = 1.27 s
Speed = 3 × 108 ms-1
Distance = ?
Using distance = speed × time, we get
Distance = 3 × 108 ms-1 × 1.27 s
= 3.81 × 108 m = 3.81 × 105 km

Question 9.
A particle moves 3 m north, then 4 m east and finally 6 m south. Calculate the magnitude of displacement. As shown in fig. let us consider east-west direction along x-axis and north-south direction along y-axis. Then AB, BC and CD represent the displacement of 3 m north, 4 m east and 6 m south respectively.
Obviously net displacement is represented by AB magnitude of net displacement s = AD
= $$\sqrt{(\mathrm{AE})^{2}+(\mathrm{ED})^{2}}$$
= $$\sqrt{(\mathrm{BC})^{2}+(\mathrm{CD}-\mathrm{AB})^{2}}$$
= $$\sqrt{(4)^{2}+(6-3)^{2}}$$
= $$\sqrt{(4)^{2}+(3)^{2}}$$
= $$\sqrt{16+9}$$
$$\sqrt{25}$$
= 5m Question 10.
A person moves a distance of 3 km towards east then 2 km towards north and then 3.5 km towards east. Find :
(a) the distance covered by the person, and
(b) the displacement of his motion. As shown AB, BC and CD represent the distance of 3 km east, 2 km north and 3.5 km east respectively.
(a) Net distance covered by a person = AB + BC + CD
= (3 + 2 + 3.5) km = 8.5 km
(b) Net displacement = AD = $$\sqrt{(\mathrm{AE})^{2}+(\mathrm{ED})^{2}}$$
= $$\sqrt{(\mathrm{AB}+\mathrm{CD})^{2}+(\mathrm{BC})^{2}}$$
= $$\sqrt{(3+3.5)^{2}+(2)^{2}}$$
= $$\sqrt{(6.5)^{2}+(2)^{2}}$$
= $$\sqrt{42.25+4}$$
= $$\sqrt{46.25}$$
= 6.8 km

Question 11.
An athlete completes one round of a circular track of diameter 49 m in 20 s. Calculate the distance covered and displacement at the end of 30 s.
Here, diameter = 49 cm As an athlete completes one round of a circular track in a period T = 20 s, hence in time t = 30 s, he will complete n = $\frac{30}{20}$ = 1.5 rounds. Thus, he will beat point B diagonally opposite to initial position A
Displacement = AB = D = 49 m
Distance covered = n(2πr) = n(πD)
= 1.5 × $$\frac{22}{7}$$ × 49 = 231 m

Question 12.
On a 120 km track, a train travels the first 30 km at uniform speed of 30 km/h. Calculate the speed with which the train should move rest of the track so as to get the average speed of 60 km/h for entire trip.
As the average speed of a train for entire journey s = 120 km is vav - 60 km/h
Hence, total time taken by train to cover the journey t = $$\frac{s}{v_{\mathrm{av}}}=\frac{120 \mathrm{~km}}{60 \mathrm{~km} / \mathrm{h}}$$ = 2h
Time taken to travel first 30 km at uniform speed of 30 km/h
t1 = $$\frac{30 \mathrm{~km}}{30 \mathrm{~km} / \mathrm{h}}$$ = 1hr
Time for covering remaining distance [120 - 30] = 90 km should be
t2 = t - t1 = (2 - 1)h = 1 h
∴ Constant speed of train for this journey v2
= $$\frac{s_{2}}{t_{2}}=\frac{90 \mathrm{~km}}{1 \mathrm{~h}}$$ =90 km/h

Question 13.
A girl while riding a bicycle moves with the speed of 10 km/h for 2 hours and with the speed of 15 km/h in next 2 hours. Find the total distance moved by her and her average speed.
Distance moved by girl in time (t1) = 2h with a speed v1 = 10 km/h is given as
s1 = v1t1 = 10 × 2 = 20 km
and distance moved by girl in subsequent time t2 = 3 h with speed v2 = 15 km/h is given as :
s2 = v2t2 = 15 × 3 = 45 km
Total distance moved by girl = 20 + 45 = 65
Her average speed for entire journey Vav  Question 14.
A cyclist completes 8 revolutions of a circular track of radius 98 m with a uniform speed in 40 minutes. Calculate the speed.
Here no. of revolutions completed by the cyclist n = 8, radius of circular track r = 98 m and time, t = 40 min = 40 × 60 s = 2400 s Question 15.
An object is dropped from rest at a height of 150 m and simultaneously another object is dropped from rest at a height of 100 m. What is the difference in their heights after 2 s if both the objects drop with same accelerations? How does the difference in heights vary with time?
Initial difference in height, h = (150 - 100) m = 50 m
Both the objects are dropped simultaneously from rest (zero velocity),
Distance travelled by first object in 2 s = d1 = ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2
Initial speed = 0 (as the object was at rest), t = 2 s
Therefore, by substituting the values we get
= 0 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$g (2)2 = 2 g = 2 × 9.8 = 19.6 m
Where, g = 9.8 m/s2
Distance travelled by another object in
2s = d2 = 0 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$g (2)2
= 2 g = 19.6 m
After 2 s, height at which the first object will be h1 = 150 - 19.6
After 2 s, height at which the second object will be h2 = 100 - 19.6
Thus, after 2 s, difference in height = h1 - h2
= 150 - 19.6 - (100 - 19.6) = 50 m
After 2 s, the difference in height will be 50 m = Initial difference in height (h)
Thus, difference in height does not vary with time.

Question 16.
An object starting from rest travels 20 m in first 2 s and 160 m in next 4 s. What will be the velocity after 7 s from the start?
Let’s acceleration of the body be ‘a’.
Therefore, in order to find the acceleration of the body, we use
s = ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2
Where, u = 0, t = 2 s and s = 20 m, a = ?
Therefore, by substituting the values we get,
20 = 0 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × a × (2)2
20 = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 4a
a = 20 × $$\frac{2}{4}$$ = 10m/s2
To find final velocity (v), we use
v = u + at
v = 0 + 10 × 7
v = 10 m/s Question 17.
Using following data, draw time-displacement graph for a moving object: Use this graph to find average velocity for first 4 s, for next 4 s and for last 6 s. Average velocity for first 4s: As s (metre) remains the same from 4 to 8 seconds, velocity is zero (refer the graph)
For last 6 s, v = $$\frac{0-6}{16-10}$$ = -1 ms-1 Question 18.
An electron moving with a velocity of 5 × 104 m s-1 enters into a uniform electric field and acquires a uniform acceleration of 104 m s-2 in the direction of its initial motion.
(i) Calculate the time in which the electron would acquire a velocity double of its initial velocity.
(ii) How much distance the electron would cover in this time?
Given,
Initial velocity, u = 5 × 104 ms-1
and acceleration, a = 104 m s-2
(i) Final velocity = v = 2 u
v = 2 × (5 × 104 ms-1)
= 10 × 104 m s-1; t = ?
v = u + at or t = $$\frac{v-u}{a}$$
= $$\frac{\left(10 \times 10^{4}\right)-\left(5 \times 10^{4}\right)}{10^{4}}$$
= $$\frac{5 \times 10^{4}}{10^{4}}$$
= 5s

(ii) t = 5 s; a = 104 m s-2; u = 5 × 104 m s-1; s = ?
Now using the formula, s = ut + $$\frac{1}{2}$$at2
s = (5 × 104) × 5 + $$\frac{1}{2}$$(104) × (5)2
s = 25 × 104 + $$\frac{25}{2}$$ × (104)
s = 25 × 104 + 12.5 × (104)
s = 37.5 × 104 m Last Updated on Aug. 12, 2022, 12:07 p.m.
