1. B

1. A

Explanation: The force needed can be calculated by using the relation :

Force = mass × acceleration

Or     F = m × a

Here,         force, F = ?

Mass, m = 6 kg

Acceleration, a = 4 m/s2

Now, putting these values of m and a in the equation, we get :

F = 6 × 4

Force   F = 24 N

Thus, the force needed is of 24 newtons.

1. C

Explanation: force F = 12 N

Mass m = 3 kg

acceleration a = ?

Now,         F = m × a

So,             12 = 3 × a

3a = 12

a = (12/3) m/s2

Acceleration, a = 4 m/s2

1. D

Explanation: Mass m = 1500 kg

Using the first equation of motion.

Initial velocity, u = 0   (car starts from rest)

Final velocity, v = 30 m/s

Time taken t = 10 s

Now, putting these values in the equation :

v = u + at

30 = 0 + a × 10

10a = 30

a = (30/10) m/s2

acceleration, a = 3 m/s2

By putting m = 1500 kg and a = 3 m/s2 in formula

F = m × a

F = 1500 × 3 N

= 4500 N

Thus the force required in this case is of 4500 newtons.

1. A

Explanation: First let’s calculate the distance travelled in the first two seconds.

From the given graph we find that :

Distance travelled in first two seconds = Area under line AB and the time axis

= Area of triangle AB2 = (1/2) × base × height = 15 m

Thus, the distance travelled by the car in the first two seconds is 15 metres.

The braking force is to be calculated by using the formula :

F = m × a

Here the mass of the car is given as 1000 kg. The acceleration in the last one second (from point C to point D) can be calculated from the graph. Now, the acceleration is given by the slope of speed-time graph.

Acceleration in last one second = slope of line CD

= 15 m/s2

If we observe the graph, we will find that the speed of the car is decreasing from point C to point D. That means the acceleration from C to D is negative so it should be written with a minus sign.

Acceleration, a = –15 m/s2

Force F = 1000 × (–15)

= -15000 N

The negative sign of force here shows that the force is being applied in a direction opposite to the motion of the car. That is, it is a retarding force.

1. D

Explanation: First let’s calculate the distance travelled in the first two seconds.

From the given graph we see that :

Distance travelled by car in first two seconds = Area under line AB and the time axis

= Area of triangle AB2

= (1/2) × base × height (Altitude)

= (1/2) × 2 × 15

= 15 m

Thus, the distance travelled by the car in the first two seconds is 15 metres.

1. A

Explanation: Let’s find its acceleration by using equation of motion :

Distance travelled  s = ut + (1/2)at2

s = 400 m

Initial speed, u = 0    (As it starts from rest)

Time, t = 20 s

acceleration a = ?

By Putting these values in the above formula :

400 = 0 × 20 + (1/2) × a × (20)2

400 = 200 a

a = 2 m/s2         …….(1)

Let’s now calculate the force by using the relation :

F = m × a

Mass, m = 7 metric tones

= 7 × 1000 kg

= 7000 kg          …….(2)

acceleration, a = 2 m/s2

Force, F = 7000 × 2

F = 14000 N

Thus the force acting on the truck is 14000 newtons.

1. C

Explanation:

(i)     First case :

Force F = 5 N

Mass, m = m1

acceleration, a = 8 m/s2

Now, F = m × a

5 = m1 × 8

m1 = 0.625 kg

Hence  mass m1 is 0.625 kg.

(ii)    Second case :

Force, F = 5 N

Mass, m = m2

acceleration, a = 24 m/s2

5 = m2 × 24

m2 =   5/24 kg

Thus, the mass, m2 is 5/24 kg.

(iii) Third case :

Force F = 5 N

Total mass m = m1 + m2

= 0.625 + 5/24

= 0.833 kg

acceleration, a = ?

By putting these values in the relation :

F = m × a

5 = 0.833 × a

a = 6 m/s2

Thus, if both the masses are tied together, then the acceleration would be 6 m/s2.

1. A

Explanation:

(i)     In the first case :

Force, F = m × a

= (10/1000) kg × 5 m/s2

= 0.05 N   …….(1)

(ii)    In the second case :

Force, F = (20/1000) kg × 2 m/s2

= 0.04 N  ……..(2)

Thus, a greater force of 0.05 N is required for accelerating a 10 g mass.

1. A

Explanation: Given mass of bullet = 10 g = (10/1000) = 0.01 kg

Velocity of bullet = 300 m/s

Mass of gun = 6 kg

Recoil velocity of gun = ?

Now, putting these values in the relation:

Mass of Bullet  ×   velocity of Bullet = Mass of gun× Recoil velocity of gun

0.01 × 300 = 6 × Recoil velocity of gun

Recoil velocity of gun = (0.01 × 300)/6

= 0.5 m/s
