2. length of scale : metre : : speed

**V. Give very short answer****.**

** **

**1.
All objects having uniform speed need not have uniform velocity. Describe with
the help of examples.**

If an athlete in the diagram takes 25 s to complete a 200 m
sprint event. Then

Speed = distance / time

= 200 / 25

= 8 m / s

He travels with an uniform speed since he covers equal distances
in equal intervals of time.

velocity = displacement / time

= 50 / 25

= 2 m/s

∴ Velocity is not uniform because there is change in direction.

**2.
“She moves at a constant speed in a constant direction”. Rephrase the same
sentence in fewer words using concepts related to motion.**

Saphira moves with a
uniform velocity.

**3.
Correct your friend who says “The acceleration gives the idea of how fast the
position changes”.**

The acceleration gives the
idea of change of velocity with time.

**V. Give short answer.**

**1.
Show the shape of the distance – time graph for the motion in the following
cases.**

**a.
A bus moving with a constant speed.**

**b.
A car parked on a road side.**

**2.
Distinguish between speed and velocity.**

**Speed (m/s) **

1. It is the distance travelled per unit time.

2. It is a scalar quantity

3. It is the change in distance divided by change in time.

4. It has only magnitude.

5. Speed always positive whether it is moving to right or left.

6. Megnitude of speed in no way equal to Zero.

**Velocity (m/s)**

1. It is the distance travelled in a particular direction per
unit time.

2. It is a vector quantity

3. It is the change in displacement divided by change in time.

4. It has both magnitude and direction.

5. Velocity is positive if it moves to right and it is negative
it is moves to left.

6. Magnitude of velocity may be zero.

**3.
What do you mean by constant acceleration?**

An object undergoes uniform (constant) acceleration when the
change (increase or decrease) in its velocity for every unit of time is the
same. Table shows a moving bus with uniform acceleration.

When the velocity of the object is increasing by 20 m/s the
acceleration is 20 m/s^{2}. When the velocity of the object is
decreasing by 20 m/s the deceleration is 20 m/s^{2}.

When the velocity of the object is decreasing by 20m/s the deceleration is 20 m/s2.

Deceleration = Decrease in velocity / Deceleration = t = 20/20 = 1s

The velocity of the object is decreasing by 20m/s in one second.

**4.
What is centre of gravity ?**

The centre of gravity of an object is the point through which
the entire weight of the object appears to act.

**VII. Answer in detail.**

**1.
Explain the types of stability with suitable examples.**

Stability is a measure of the body's ability to maintain its
original position.

(a) Stable equilibrium

(b) Unstable equilibrium

(c) Neutral equlibrium

**Stable Equlibrium :**

The frustum can be tilted through quite a big angle without
toppling. Its centre of gravity is raised when it is displaced.

The vertical line thorugh its centre of gravity still falls
within its base. So it can return to its original position.

**Unstable
Equilibrium :**

The frustum will topple with the slightest tilting. Its centre
of gravity is lowered when it is displaced.

The vertical line through its centre of gravity falls outside
its base.

**Neutral Equilibrium
:**

(d) It does not cause to topple.

(e) The frustum will rolls about but does not topple.

(f) Its centre of gravity ramains at the same height when it it
displaced.

(g) The body will stay in any position to which it has been
displaced.

**2.
Write about the experiment to find the centre of gravity of the irregularly
shaped plate.**

Determination of centre of gravity of irregular shaped objects.

Apparatus : Irregularly shaped plate string, pendulum bob,
stand.

1. Make three holes in the lamina.

2. Suspend the lamina from the optical pin through one of the
holes as shown.

3. Suspend the plumbline from the pin and mark and position of
the plumbline on the lamina.

4. Draw lines on the lamina representing the positions of the
plumbline.

5. Repeat the above steps for the holes.

6. Label the intersection of the three lines as X, the position
of the centre of gravity of the lamina.

**VIII. Numerical problems.**

**1.
Geetha takes 15 minutes from her house to reach her school on a bicycle. If the
bicycle has a speed of 2 m/s, calculate the distance between her house and the
school.**

Time taken by Geetha = 15 minutes

= 15 × 60
seconds

= 900 s

Her speed = 2 m/s

Distanced moved by her in 1 s = 2 m

∴ in 900 s = (900 s / 1 s) × 2 m

= 1800
m = 1.8 km

**2.
A car started from rest and travelling with velocity of 20 m /s in 10 s. What
is its acceleration?**

Initial velocity (U) = 0 m /s

Final Velocity (V) = 20 m
/s

Change in Velocity = (V - U) = (20 – 0 ) = 20 m/s

Time taken for this change in velocity = 10 s

Acceleration = change in velocity / time

a = 20 m/s / 10 s = 2 m/s^{2}

**3.A
bus can accelerate with an acceleration 1 m / s ^{2}. Find the minimum
time for the bus to reach the speed of 100 km / s from 50 km / s.**

Acceleration of the bus a = 1 m/s^{2}

Change in speed = (V - U) = (100 - 50) km / hr

= 50
× 1000 m/hr

= (50000
/ 60) m/ minute

= (50,000 / 60×60 )
m/second

Time taken for this change of speed = change in speed /
acceleration

= [ 50,000 m/s ] / [ 60 ×
60 × 1 ms^{2}] = 125 /9 s

= 13.89 seconds

**IX. Fill in the boxes.**
