**1. A uniform force of (2iˆ+ ˆj) N acts on a particle of mass 1 kg. The particle displaces from position (3 ˆj + ˆk ) m to (5iˆ+3ˆj) m. The work done by the force on the particle is**

(a) 9 J

(b) 6 J

(c) 10 J

(d) 12 J

**Answer: c) 10J **

**Solution:**

= 10J

**2. A ball of mass 1 kg and another of mass 2 kg are dropped from a tall building whose height is 80 m. After, a fall of 40 m each towards Earth, their respective kinetic energies will be in the ratio of**

(a) √2 : 1

(b) 1 : √2

(c) 2 : 1

(d) 1 : 2

**Answer: d) 1 : 2**

**Solution:**

v_{i} = v_{2 }= v 40m

m_{1} = 1kg

m_{2} = 2kg

kE_{1} / kE_{2 }= [ 1/2 m_{1}v^{2}
] / [ 1/2 m_{2}v^{2} ] = m_{1 }/ m_{2} = 1 / 2

∴kE_{1} : kE_{2}
= 1 : 2

**3. A body of mass 1 kg is thrown upwards with a velocity 20 m s−1. It momentarily comes to rest after attaining a height of 18 m. How much energy is lost due to air friction?. (Take g= 10ms-2 )**

(a) 20 J

(b) 30 J

(c) 40 J

(d) 10 J

**Answer: a) 20 J**

**Solution:**

u = 20ms^{-1}

m = 1kg

KE = 1/2 mu^{2}

= 1/2 × 1 × 20 × 20

= 200J

PE_{max} = mgh_{max} = 200J

PE_{1} = mgh = 1 ×10 ×18=180J

energy lose = 200 − 180 = 20J

**4. An engine pumps water continuously through a hose. Water leaves the hose with a velocity v and m is the mass per unit length of the water of the jet. What is the rate at which kinetic energy is imparted to water ?.**

a) ½ mv2

b) mv2

c) ½ mu2

d) mu2

**Answer: a) 1/2 mv ^{3}**

**Solution:**

Mass of water flowing per second = mv

Rate of K.E imparted = 1/2 mv^{3}

= 1/2 (mv) × v²

= 1/2 mv × v^{2} = 1/2 mv^{3}

**5. A body of mass 4 m is lying in xy-plane at rest. It suddenly explodes into three pieces. Two pieces each of mass m move perpendicular to each other with equal speed v. The total kinetic energy generated due to explosion is**

(a) mv2

(b) 3/2 mv2

(c) 2mv2

(d) 4mv2

**Answer: b) 3/2 mv²**

**Solution: **p_{i} = 0

∴ KE = 1/2 mv² + 1/2
mv² + 1/2 (2 m) v²

= mv² + mv²/2 = 3/2 mv²

**6. The potential energy of a system increases, if work is done**

(a) by the system against a conservative force

(b) by the system against a non-conservative force

(c) upon the system by a conservative force

(d) upon the system by a non-conservative force

**Answer: a) by the system
against a conservative force **

(a) √(2gR)

(b) √(3gR)

(c) √(5gR)

(d) √(gR)

**Answer: (c) ****√(****5gR)**

**Solution:**

Maximum velocity of the bottom of a vertical is √(5gR)

**8. The work done by the conservative force for a closed path is**

(a) always negative

(b) zero

(c) always positive

(d) not defined

**Answer: b) zero**

**9. If the linear momentum of the object is increased by 0.1%, then the kinetic energy is increased by**

(a) 0.1 %

(b) 0.2%

(c) 0.4%

(d) 0.01%

**Answer: b) 0.2%**

**Solution:**

kE_{i} = p^{2} / 2m = k

p’ = 0.1% p = (1 + 0.001) p = 1.001p

KE_{f} = (p´)^{2} / 2m = 1.002001 K

ΔKE = KE_{f }− KE_{i}

= 1.002K – K = 0.002K

ΔKE = 0.002 × 100 = 0.2%

**10. If the potential energy of the particle is α - β/2 x2, then force experienced by the particle is**

(a) F=β/2 x2

(b) F=βx

(c) F=-βx

(d) F=-β/2 x2

**Answer: b) F = βx**

**Solution :**

u = α – (β/2)x^{2}

F = -du / dx = -d/dx ( α – (1/2)β x^{2 })

= 0 + [ 1/2 β (2x) ]

= βx

**11. A wind-powered generator converts wind energy into electric energy. Assume that the generator converts a fixed fraction of the wind energy intercepted by its blades into electrical energy. For wind speed v, the electrical power output will be proportional to**

(a) v

(b) v2

(c) v3

(d) v4

**Answer: c) v^{3}**

**Solution:**

Density of air = ρ

Cross section area of blades = A

Length of blades = x

Mass m = ρAX

KE = 1/2 mv² = 1/2 ρAXv²

t = x / v

Power P = KE / Δt =1/2 ρAXv² × v/x

= 1/2 ρAV^{3}

**12. Two equal masses m1 and m2 are moving along the same straight line with velocities 5ms-1 and -9ms-1 respectively. If the collision is elastic, then calculate the velocities after the collision of m1 and m2, respectively **

(a) -4ms-1 and 10 ms-1

(b) 10ms-1 and 0 ms-1

(c) -9ms-1 and 5 ms-1

(d) 5 ms-1 and 1 ms-1

**Answer: c) -9 ms ^{-1} and 5 ms^{-1}**

**Solution:**

For equal mass m_{1} = m_{2}

∴v_{1} = u_{2}
& v_{2} = u_{1}

here u_{1 }= ms^{-1}; u_{2} = −9ms^{-1}

∴v_{1} = −9ms^{−1};
v_{2} = 5ms^{−1}

**13. A particle is placed at the origin and a force F=kx is acting on it (where k is a positive constant). If U(0)=0, the graph of U(x) versus x will be (where U is the potential energy function)**

**Answer: c) **

**Solution:**

u = −^{ x}∫_{0 }F.dx

= −^{ x}∫_{0 }Kxdx

u = −K [ x^{2} / 2 ]^{x} = − 1/2 Kx^{2}

u(0) = 0; u = (x) = − Kx^{2}

x^{2} = −u (x)

**14. A particle which is constrained to move along x-axis, is subjected to a force in the same direction which varies with the distance x of the particle from the origin as F(x) =-kx+ax3.**

**Here, k and a are positive constants. For x ≥ 0, the functional form of the potential energy U(x) of the particle is**

**Answer: d) **

**Solution:**

du_{x} = −F.dx

u_{x} = −^{x}∫_{0} Fdx = – [ (Kx^{2}/2) + (ax^{4} / 4) ]

= (kx^{2} / 2) – (ax^{4} / 4)

u = 0 at x = 0 & x = √( 2k / a )

x = 0, F = 0 but F = – du/dx

x = 0, du / dx = 0

**15. A spring of force constant k is cut into two pieces such that one piece is double the length of the other. Then, the long piece will have a force constant of **

(a) 2/3 k

(b) 3/2 k

(c) 3k

(d) 6k

**Answer: b) 3/2 k**

**Solution:**

k ∝ 1 / *l* ;

*l*_{1} = *l*
/ 3

*l*_{2 }= 2*l* / 3

k = 1 / *l*_{2} = 3 / 2*l* = (3/2) × (1/*l*) = 3/2 (k)

k = 3/2 k
