i.When you walk, you push the street i.e. you apply a force on the street and the reaction force moves you forward.

ii. When someone fires the gun, the reaction force pushes the gun backwards.

iii. While rowing a boat, the boatman pushes the water backwards with the oars. The water exerts equal and opposite push on the boat which makes the boat move forward.              

 2. Newton’s first law of motion (Law of Inertia)

Ans i. If a car is moving forward, it will continue to move forward unless friction or the brakes are applied.

Q.12. Give scientific reasons :

1. When an object falls freely to the ground, its acceleration is uniform.

Ans i. If the velocity changes by equal amounts in equal time interval s, the object is said to be in uniform acceleration.

i] When the body falls freely on the ground, there are equal changes in velocity of the body in equal intervals of time.

ii] Thus the acceleration of the body is constant.

iii] Hence, it possesses uniform acceleration.

iv] It is easier to stop a tennis ball as compared to a cricket ball,

 

2. when both are travelling with the same velocity.

Ans i. The above example is based on Newton’s second law of motion.

i.Momentum of an object depends on its mass as well as its velocity.

ii. Cricket ball is heavier than a tennis ball. Although they are thrown with the same velocity, cricket ball has more momentum and inertia due to its greater mass than a tennis ball.

iii. Hence, force required to stop cricket ball is more than a tennis ball.

iv. Therefore, it is easier to stop a tennis ball than a cricket ball moving with same velocity.

 

3. The velocity of an object at rest is considered to be uniform.

Ans i. The velocity of an object is said to be in uniform motion when its speed is constant all the time.

ii. For an object at rest, its speed is zero all the time.

iii. Hence, an object in a state of rest is an example of uniform motion.                                                                                   Motion is relative.

i.A body is said to be in motion if it changes its position with respect to its surrounding.

ii. Motion of an object depends on the observer, hence a body may appear to be moving for one person and at the same time at rest for another.

iii. Hence, motion is relative.

Heavier objects offer more inertia.

i. According to Newton’s first law of motion, ‘An object continues to remain at rest or in a state of uniform motion along a straight line unless an external unbalanced forces acts on it’

ii. As mass is the quantity of matter in a body, we need to exert more force to push a heavier body.

iii.Inertia is related to the mass of the object.

iv. Hence, heavier objects offer more inertia.       

The launching of a rocket is based on Newton’s third law of motion.

i.Newton’s third law of motion states that,’ Every action force has an equal and opposite reaction force which acts simultaneously ’.

ii. When the fuel in a rocket is ignited, it burns as a result of chemical reaction.

iii. The exhaust gases escape with a great force through a small opening at the tail end of the rocket.

iv. It exerts an equal and opposite reaction force on the rocket, due to which the rocket moves in the forward direction. Thus, the principle of launching of rocket is based on Newton’s third law of motion.

4. Even though the magnitudes of action force and reaction force are equal and their directions are opposite, their effects do not get cancelled.

Ans i. This is based on Newton’s third law of motion.

  1. Forces are always applied in pairs.
  2. When one object applies a force on another object, the latter object also simultaneously applies a force on the former object.
  3. Action and reaction forces act on different bodies.
  4. They don’t act on the same body, hence they don’t cancel each other’s effect.

Therefore, even though the magnitude of action force and reaction force are equal, they do not cancel each other.

  1. Complete the sentences and explain them

The minimum distance between the start and finish points of the motion of an object is called the of

the object.

Ans The minimum distance between the start and finish points of the motion of an object is called the

displacement of the object.

Displacement is the minimum distance between the start and the finish points of the motion of the object whereas distance is the actual path travelled by the object. Even if the displacement of an object is zero, the actual distance traversed by it may not be zero.

Complete the sentences and explain them

Complete the sentences and explain them

The working of a rocket depends on Newton’s law of motion.

Ans The working of a rocket depends on Newton’s third law of motion.

According to Newton’s third law, “every action force has an equal and opposite reaction force which acts simultaneously”.

In this case, the escaping gases exert an equal and opposite reaction on the rocket so that it gets propelled in the forward direction.

Q.15 Attempt the following. 3

1 A train is moving with a uniform velocity of 60km/hr for 5hours. The velocity-time graph for this uniform motion is shown in figure.

  1. With the help of the graph, how will you determine the distance covered by the train between 2 and 4 hours?
  2. Is there a relation between the distance covered by the train between 2 and 4 hours and the area of a particular quadrangle in the graph? What is the acceleration of the train?

Ans i. The distance covered by the train between 2 and 4 hours is given by the equation Distance covered = Velocity x time

= 60 x 2

= 120 km

ii. Yes, there is a relation between the distance covered by the train between 2 and 4 hours and the area of the quadrangle in the graph.

Distance covered = Area of the quadrangle (ABDC)

= l x b

= 60 x 2 = 120km

Acceleration = ( final velocity – initial velocity)/time|

= (60 -60)/2

= 0/2

= 0m/s2

Since the acceleration is zero, the train is moving with uniform velocity. This is an example of zero acceleration.

Q.16. Explain with the help of examples 3

1 Explain Uniform Circular Motion with example.

Ans i. When an object is moving with a constant speed along a circular path, the change in velocity is only due to the change in direction. Hence, it is accelerated motion.

  1. When an object moves with constant speed along a circular path, the motion is called uniform circular motion.
  2. If an object, moving along a circular path of radius ‘r’, takes time ‘t’ to come back to its starting position, its speed can be determined using the formula given below:

Speed = Circumference/time V= 2 ( r= radius of the circle)

  1. In uniform circular motion, the speed is constant along the circumference but its direction at every point is tangential.
  2. For example: when a coin is placed on a circular disc and the disc is rotated at a high speed, the coin will be thrown off in the direction of the tangent which is perpendicular to the radius of the disc. Thus, as the

coin moves along a circular path the direction of its motion is changing at every point.

  1. A body goes around the sun with constant speed in a circular orbit. Is the motion uniform or accelerated?

Ans i. When a body moves along a circular path, then its direction of motion keeps on changing continuously

  1. Since the velocity changes (due to change in direction) therefore the motion along a circular path is said to be accelerated.
  2. The above example is an accelerated one because the motion in a circle with constant speed is an example of accelerated motion.
  3. Explain recoil and recoil velocity and derive its expression.

Ans i. Let us consider the example of a bullet fired from a gun. When a bullet of mass m1 is fired from a gun of mass m2, its velocity becomes v1 and its momentum becomes m1v1. Before firing the bullet, both the gun and the bullet are at rest. Hence the total momentum is zero.

  1. According to the above law, the total final momentum has to be zero. Thus, the forward moving bullet causes the gun to move backward after firing.
  2. This backward motion of the gun is called its recoil.
  3. The velocity of recoil, v2 is v. m1v1 + m2v2 = 0

vi. v2 = -m1/m2 × v1

  1. What is velocity? State its units and types.

  1. With velocity, magnitude remains constant but the direction changes continuously.
  2. With acceleration, the magnitude remains constant but the direction changes continuously.
  3. What is speed? State its units and types.

Ans i. The speed of a body is the distance travelled in unit time.

  1. The unit of speed : M.K.S. (S.I.) unit = m/s and C.G.S. unit = cm/s
  2. Speed = Distance/ time
    1. Uniform speed: When a body moves equal distance in equal interval of time throughout its motion, it is said to have uniform speed.
    2. Non-uniform speed or variable speed: A body is said to move with variable speed if it covers unequal distance in equal intervals of time.
  3. Explain the three different ways to change the velocity of an object.

Ans As velocity is related to speed and direction, it can be changed by :

    1. Changing the speed while keeping the direction constant.
    2. Changing the direction while keeping the speed constant.
    3. Changing both the speed as well as the direction of motion.
  1. What is acceleration? State its unit and types.

  2. Units of acceleration : M.K.S.(S.I.) unit= m/s2 and C.G.S. unit = cm/s2
  3. There are two types of acceleration:
    1. Uniform acceleration: If the change in the velocity is equal in equal interval of time, the acceleration is uniform acceleration.
    2. Non-uniform acceleration: If the change in the velocity is unequal in equal interval of time, the acceleration is uniform acceleration.

Ans

This is Newton’s third law of motion.

The velocity-time graph shows the change in velocity with time of a uniformly accelerated object. The

  1. object starts from the point D in the graph with velocity v. Its velocity keeps increasing and after time t, it reaches the point B on the graph.

The initial velocity of the object = u = OD

  1. The final velocity of the object = v = OC Time t = OE

Acceleration (a) = Change in velocity/time

iii. = (Final velocity- Initial velocity)/time

= (OC-OD)/t

  1. ∴ CD = at … (i) (OC – OD = CD)
  2. From the graph … BE = AB + AE

v = CD + OD … ( AB = CD and AE = OD)

v = at + u … ( from i)

v = u + at … (i)

  1. We can determine the distance covered by the object in time t from the area of the quadrangle DOEB. DOEB is a trapezium. So we can use the formula for its area.

s = area of trapezium DOEB

s = ½ x sum of the lengths of parallel sides X distance between the parallel sides. s = ½ x (OD + BE) x OE But , OD = u, BE = v, OE = t

s = ½ x (u + v) x t … (ii)

  1. But, a = (v – u)/t

t = (v-u)/a … (iii)

s = ½ x ( u + v ) x ( v-u)/a s = ( u + v) (u – v)/2a

2as = ( u + v) ( v – u ) = v2 –u2`

v2 = u2 + 2as

  1. Explain Newton’s second law of motion and derive the formula.
    1. Newton’s second law explains about change in momentum. It states that ‘The rate of change of momentum is proportional to the applied force and the change of momentum occurs in the of the force.’

ii Suppose an object of mass ‘m’ has an initial velocity ‘u’. When a force ‘F’ is applied in the direction of its velocity for time‘t’, its velocity becomes ’v’. then, the total initial momentum of the body = Its final momentum after time t =

  1. So the rate of change of momentum = Change in momentum/ time

F= k ma (k = constant of proportionality and its value is )

  1. ∴ F= ma

Ans i. Newton’s second law explains about change in momentum. It states that ‘The rate of change of momentum is proportional to the applied force and the change of momentum occurs in the direction of the force.’

ii Suppose an object of mass ‘m’ has an initial velocity ‘u’. When a force ‘F’ is applied in the direction of its velocity for time‘t’, its velocity becomes ’v’. then, the total initial momentum of the body = ‘mu’. Its final momentum after time t = ‘mv’.

  1. So the rate of change of momentum = Change in momentum/ time

mv − mu t

=

m(v − u) t

=

= ma … (a = v u )

t

  1. Hence by Newton’s second law of motion, the rate of change of momentum is proportional to the applied force.

ma α F F α ma

  1. ∴ F= k ma (k = constant of proportionality and its value is 1)
  2. ∴ F= ma
  3. State the law of conservation of momentum and derive the formula.
    1. Suppose an object A has mass m1 and its initial velocity is u1. An object B has mass m2 and initial velocity u2.
    2. According to the formula for momentum, the initial momentum of A is and that of B is
    3. Suppose these two objects collide.
    4. Then, let the force on A due to B be F1. This force will cause acceleration in A and its velocity will become v1.
    5. ∴ Momentum of A after collision =

According to Newton’s third law of motion, A also exerts an equal force on B but in the opposite direction.

    1. This will cause a change in the momentum of B and its velocity after collision is v2. Thus, the momentum of B after collision =
    2. If F2 is the force that acts on object B,
    3. F2 =

m2a2 = … F=ma)

m2 x (v2-u2)/t = … (a= (v-u)/t) m2 (v2-u2) =

m2v2 – m2u2 =

(m1v1 + m2v2 ) =

    1. The magnitude of total final momentum = The magnitude of total initial momentum. Thus, if no external force is acting on two objects, then their total initial momentum is equal to their total final momentum.
    2. When no external force acts on two interacting objects, their total momentum remains constant. It does not change.

Ans i. Suppose an object A has mass m1 and its initial velocity is u1. An object B has mass m2 and initial velocity u2.

  1. According to the formula for momentum, the initial momentum of A is m1u1 and that of B is m2u2.
  2. Suppose these two objects collide.
  3. Then, let the force on A due to B be F1. This force will cause acceleration in A and its velocity will become v1.

Momentum of A after collision = m1v1

According to Newton’s third law of motion, A also exerts an equal force on B but in the opposite direction.

  1. This will cause a change in the momentum of B and its velocity after collision is v2. Thus, the momentum of B after collision= m2v2.
  2. If F2 is the force that acts on object B,
  3. F2= -F1

m2a2 = -m1a1

… F=ma)

m2 x (v2-u2)/t = – m1 x (v1-u1)/t … (a= (v-u)/t) m2 (v2-u2) = – m1 (v1-u1)

m2v2 – m2u2 = – m1v1+ m1u1

(m1v1 + m2v2 )= (m1u1 + m2u2)

The magnitude of total final momentum = The magnitude of total initial momentum. Thus, if no

  1. external force is acting on two objects, then their total initial momentum is equal to their total final momentum.

When no external force acts on two interacting objects, their total momentum remains constant. It does not change.

  1. A train is moving with a uniform velocity of 60km/hr for 5hours. The velocity-time graph for this uniform motion is shown in figure.
    1. With the help of the graph, how will you determine the distance covered by the train between 2 and 4 hours?
    2. Is there a relation between the distance covered by the train between 2 and 4 hours and the area of a particular quadrangle in the graph? What is the acceleration of the train?

Ans i. (a) The distance covered by the train between 2 and 4 hours is given by the equation

(b) Distance covered = Velocity x time

= 60 x 2 = 120 km

ii. (a) Yes, there is a relation between the distance covered by the train between 2 and 4 hours and the area of the quadrangle in the graph.

(b) Distance covered = Area of the quadrangle (ABDC)

(h) Since the acceleration is zero, the train is moving with uniform velocity. This is an example of zero acceleration.

  1. Take 5 examples from your surroundings and give explanation based on Newtons laws of motion.

Ans Example 1:

When we are travelling by a bus, we experience backward jerk as the bus starts moving from rest. This is in accordance with Newton’s first law of motion.

Explanation:

    1. A body resists change in its state of rest or of motion due to inertia.
    2. When the bus is at rest, inside the bus we are also at rest.
    3. As the starts moving, the portion of the our body which is in contact with the bus acquires velocity, but the upper part of the body tries to remain at rest.
    4. As a result, we exert an inertia of rest and get a backward jerk, when the bus moves in the forward direction.

Example 2:

A carpet when lifted up and given jerks, dust falls out of it. This is in accordance with Newton’s first law of motion.

Explanation:

  1. When we dust a carpet, by lifting it, the carpet is set into motion.
  2. While the dust remains in its state of rest due to inertia of rest.

Example 3:

While catching a ball, cricketer moves his hands backwards. This is in accordance with Newton’s second law of motion.

Explanation:

  1. In the act of catching the ball, by drawing hands backward, cricketer allows longer time for his hands to stop the ball.
  2. By Newton’ s second law of motion, force applied depends on the rate of change of momentum. iii.Taking longer time to stop the ball ensures smaller rate of change of momentum.

iv.Due to this, the cricketer can stop the ball by applying smaller amount of force and thereby not hurting his hands.

Example 4:

A book kept on a table remains stationary. This is in accordance with Newton’s third law of motion.

Explanation:

  1. A book kept on a table has some weight. This weight is the force acting on the table.
  2. By Newton’s third law of motion, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. iii.Thus, the table also exerts an upward force on and balances weight of the book..

iv.Thus, both the forces are balanced and there is no displacement. Hence, a book kept on a table remains stationary.

Example 5:

An air filled ballon held in hand when released, moves forward. This is in accordance with Newton’s third law of motion.

Explanation:

i. As air is released out in downward direction, it applies equal and opposite force on balloon pushing it forward.

  1. Explain how can you calculate the distance covered by the body in a given time from its velocity – time graph?

Ans

  1. If we want to calculate the distance the body has covered between say time t1 perpendiculars from points corresponding to the time t1 and t2 on the above graph.

and t2. We draw

The two perpendiculars enclose a rectangle ABCD between the graph and the time axis. The sides AC

  1. and BD are equal to 60km/h while AB and CD is 2hours. We know that the distance s covered by a body is given by the area under the rectangle.
  2. s= l Xb = v x t
  3. s =60 x 2 = 120km
  4. Hence the distance covered by the body between 2 to 4hours id 120km.

  1. If we want to calculate the distance the body has covered between say time t1 and t2. We draw perpendiculars from points corresponding to the time t1 and t2 on the above graph.

The two perpendiculars enclose a quadrangle ABCD between the graph and the time axis. From the

graph, the sides AE and DC are equal to 10seconds while AD and CE is 16m/s. Also form the triangle, AEB, sideAE is 10s and Side BE is 16m/s. We know that the distance s covered by a body is given by the area under the quadrangle.

  1. s= Area of AEDC + Area of AEB

ix. = (AD x DC) + (1/2 x AE x BE) x. =(16 x 10) + (1/2 x 10 x 16)

xi. = 160 + 80

S= 240m

  1. Hence the distance covered is 240m.
  2. In the velocity time graph for uniform acceleration. The changes in the velocity of a car in specific time are given in the following table.

    1. In the above graph represents which type of motion?
    2. How much the velocity change in every 5 minutes?
    3. For all uniformly accelerated motions, what is the shape for velocity-time graph?
    4. For all non-uniformly accelerated motions, what is the shape for velocity-time graph?
    5. Calculate the distance covered by the car between the 10th and the 20th seconds.

Ans i. In the above graph, the velocity changes by equal amounts in equal time intervals. Thus this is an example of uniformly accelerated motion.

  1. The velocity changes by 8m/s in every 5 minutes.
  2. For all uniformly accelerated motions, the velocity-time graph is a straight line.

vi. For all non-uniformly accelerated motions, the velocity-time graph may have any shape depending on how the acceleration changes with time.

v. Distance s = average velocity × time

= (16+32/2)m/sx(20s -10s) 24m/s × 10s = 240 m

Ans. Distance covered by the car = 240m

  1. Law of conservation of momentum

Ans i. Suppose an object A has mass m1 and its initial velocity is u1. An object B has mass m2 and initial velocity u2.

  1. According to the formula for momentum, the initial momentum of A is m1u1 and that of B is m2u2.
  2. Suppose these two objects collide.
  3. Then, let the force on A due to B be F1. This force will cause acceleration in A and its velocity will become v1.
  4. Momentum of A after collision = m1v1

According to Newton’s third law of motion, A also exerts an equal force on B but in the opposite direction.

  1. This will cause a change in the momentum of B and its velocity after collision is v2. Thus, the momentum of B after collision= m2v2.
  2. If F2 is the force that acts on object B,
  3. F2= -F1
  4. m2a2 = -m1a1 (F=ma)

x. m2 x (v2-u2)/t = – m1 x (v1-u1)/t (a= (v-u)/t)

xi. m2 (v2-u2) = – m1 (v1-u1)

  1. m2v2 – m2u2 = – m1v1+ m1u1
  2. (m1v1 + m2v2 )= (m1u1 + m2u2)

The magnitude of total final momentum = The magnitude of total initial momentum. Thus, if no

  1. external force is acting on two objects, then their total initial momentum is equal to their total final momentum.

When no external force acts on two interacting objects, their total momentum remains constant. It does not change.
