###### Question Paper-i Answer The Following Question

**Question 1.**Derive the three equations of motion by graphical method.

**Answer:**Equations of motion from velocity – time graph:

Graph shows the change in velocity with time for an uniformly accelerated object. The object starts from the point D in the graph with velocity u. Its velocity keeps increasing and after time t it reaches the point B on the graph.

The initial velocity of the object = u = OD = EA

The final velocity of the object = v = OC = EB

Time = t = OE = DA

Also from the graph we know that, AB = DC

First equation of motion

By definition, acceleration = change in velocity / time

= (final velocity – initial velocity)/ time

= (OC – OD) / OE

= DC / OE

a = DC / t

DC = AB = at

From the graph EB = EA + AB

__v = u + at__

This is first equation of motion

Second equation of motion

From the graph the distance covered by the object during time t is given by the area of quadrangle DOEB

s = area of the quadrangle DOEB

= area of the rectangle DOEA + area of the triangle DAB

= (AE × OE) + (1/2 × AB × DA)

__s =__

This is second equation of motion.

Third equation of motion

From the graph the distance covered by the object during time t is given by the area of the quadrangle DOEB.

Here DOEB is a trapezium.

Then,

S = area of trapezium DOEB

= 1/2 × sum of length of parallel side × distance between parallel sides

###### True Or False

**Question 1.**The motion of a city bus in a heavy traffic road is an example for uniform motion.

**Answer:**False

During heavy Traffic Jam, Bus accelerates as well as decelerates following a non-uniform motion.

**Question 2.**Acceleration can get negative value also.

**Answer:**True

For Example, If an object is having some initial velocity ’u’, after covering some distance, it finally stops i.e ‘v’ is zero.In this case, acceleration is negative or object decelerates to rest.

**Question 3.**Distance covered by a particle never becomes zero between any interval of time but displacement becomes zero.

**Answer:**True

Consider the case of circular motion. If an object completes one revolution. The distance covered will be 2 Ï€ r but the displacement will be zero because the object’s initial and final positions are same.

**Question 4.**The velocity-time graph of a particle falling freely under gravity would be a straight line parallel to the x-axis.

**Answer:**False

Since the body is experiencing a force. It will accelerate and velocity will change, hence it will not be parallel to the x-axis.

**Question 1.**During an experiment, a signal from a spaceship reached the ground station in five seconds. What was the distance of the spaceship from the ground station? The signal travels at the speed of light that is 3 × 10^{8} m/s

**Answer:**Given: speed of signal = m/s

Time is taken by signal to reach the ground = 5s

Distance = speed time

= (m/s) 5 (s)

= __m__

**Question 2.**A ball is gently dropped from a height of 20m. If its velocity increases uniformly at the rate of 10 ms^{-2} with what velocity will it strike the ground? After what time will it strike the ground?

**Answer:**Given : height(s) = 20m

Acceleration = 10 ms^{-2}

To find the final velocity of ball as it reach the ground we will use 3rd equation of motion

We have, initial velocity(u) = 0 m/s

height(s) = 20m

Acceleration(a) = 10 ms^{-2}

The third equation of motion

To find the time taken by ball the to reach the ground we will use 1st the equation of motion

We have, initial velocity(u) = 0 m/s

Final velocity(v) = 20 m/s

Acceleration(a) = 10 ms^{-2}

1st equation of motion

v = u + at

20 = 0 + 10 t

**Question 3.**An Athlete completes one round of a circular track of diameter 200 m in 40 s. What will be the distance covered and the displacement at the end of 2 m and 20 s?

**Answer:**Given: diameter of circular track(d) = 200 m

Time is taken to complete one round = the 40s

Therefore, length of the track = Ï€ d

= 200Ï€

Speed of the athlete= distance travelled/time taken

= 200Ï€ /40

= 5Ï€ m/s

Distance covered after 2m 20s (140s)

Distance = speed × time

= 5Ï€× 140

=700Ï€ (m)

During the coverage of 700Ï€ (m) the athlete makes 3 and half round of the circular track. So the displacement is equal to the diameter of the track = 200 m.

Acceleration = ‒0.5 ms^{-2}

Distance travelled = ?

We use 3rd equation of motion to find the distance travelled

We have, speed(s) = 90 kmph

= 90 m/s

= 25 m/s

Acceleration = ‒0.5 ms^{-2}

Final speed = 0 m/s

So train will travel 625m before it comes to rest.

Speed of the athlete= distance travelled/time taken

= 200Ï€ /40

= 5Ï€ m/s

Distance covered after 2m 20s (140s)

Distance = speed × time

= 5Ï€× 140

=700Ï€ (m)

During the coverage of 700Ï€ (m) the athlete makes 3 and half round of the circular track. So the displacement is equal to the diameter of the track = 200 m.
