Question 1.

Two balls are released simultaneously from a certain height, one is allowed to fall freely and other thrown with some horizontal velocity.

- Will they hit the ground together?
- At any time during the fall will the velocities of the balls are same?
- How does the path of the balls appear to a person standing on the ground?

Answer:

- Both balls will reach at same time.
- Total velocity of first body and second body is different. First ball has only downward velocity but second ball has both downward and horizontal velocity.
- The path of first ball appears to be straight line and that of second ball appears to be parabola.

Question 2.

A ball is thrown straight up.

- Obtain a mathematical expression for the height to which it travels.
- What js its velocity and acceleration at the top?
- Draw the velocity-time graph for the ball showing its motion up and down.

Answer:

1. u = u, v = o, a = -g, h = ?

We can find maximum height using the equation

v^{2} = u^{2} + 2as

0 = u^{2} + 2 × – g × H

2gh = u^{2}

H = \(\frac{u^{2}}{2 g}\)

2. Velocity is zero, but it has a acceleration and its value g = 9.8 m/s^{2}.

3.

Question 3.

- Parallelogram law helps to find the magnitude and direction of the resultant of two forces. State the law.
- For two vectors \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{A}}\) and \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}\) are acting at a point with an angle a between them, find the magnitude and direction of the resultant vector.
- What will be the angle between two vectors of equal magnitude for their resultant to have the same magnitude as one of the vectors?

Answer:

1. Law of parallelogram of vectors:

If two vectors acting simultaneously at a point are represented in magnitude and direction by the two adjacent sides of a parallelogram then the diagonal of the parallelogram passing through that point represents the resultant in magnitude and direction.

2.

Consider two vectors \(\vec{A}(=\overrightarrow{O P}) \text { and } \vec{B}(=\overrightarrow{O Q})\) making an angle θ. Using the parallelogram method of vectors, the resultant vector R can be written as,

SN is normal to OP and PM is normal to OS. From the geometry of the figure

OS^{2} = ON^{2} + SN^{2}

but ON = OP + PN

ie. OS^{2} = (OP+PN)^{2} + SN^{2} ______(1)

From the triangle SPN, we get

PN = Bcosθ and SN = Bsinθ

Substituting these values in eq.(1), we get

OS^{2} = (OP + Bcosθ)^{2} + (Bsinθ)^{2}

But OS = R and OP = A

= A^{2} + 2ABcosθ + B^{2}cos^{2}θ + B^{2}sin^{2}θ

^{2} = A^{2} +2 ABcosθ + B^{2}

R = \(\sqrt{A^{2}+2 A B \cos \theta+B^{2}}\)

The resultant vector \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{R}}\) make an angle a with \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{R}}\). From the right angled triangle OSN,

But SN = Bsinθ and PN = Bcosθ

Answer:

1. Two-dimensional motion. Projectile has two dimensions.

2. The K.E at highest point

E_{k} = E cos^{2}θ,

where E = initial K.E

0.75 E = E cos^{2}θ

cos^{2}θ = 0.75 = 3/4

cosθ = \(\sqrt{3} / 2\)

θ = 60°

3. When an object is projected with velocity ‘u’ making an angle θ to with the horizontal direction, the horizontal range will be

R_{1} = \(\frac{u^{2} \sin 2 \theta}{g}\) ____(1)

when an object is projected with velocity u making an angle (90° – θ) with the horizontal direction, then horizontal range will be

From eq (1) eq (2), we get R_{1} = R_{2}, which means that we get same horizontal range for two angles θ and (90 – θ).

Answer:

1. Parabola

2. Yes, highest point

3. Energy with a projectile is projected:

(i) Kinetic energy E_{k} = 1/2mv^{2}

Velocity at the highest point = Vcosθ

∴ K.E. at highest point = 1/2m(Vcosθ)^{2}

= 1/2 mv^{2}cos^{2}θ

K.E. = E_{k} cos^{2}θ

(ii) Potential energy at highest point,

P.E. = mgh

= mg\(\frac{v^{2} \sin ^{2} \theta}{2 g}\) = 1/2mv^{2}sin^{2}θ

P.E. = E_{k} sin^{2}θ.

Question 4.

A body is projected with a velocity ‘u’ in a direction making an angle θ with the horizontal.

- Derive the mathematical equation of the path followed.
- Draw the velocity-time graphs for the horizontal and vertical components of velocity of the projectile.
- Obtain an expression for the time of flight of the projectile.

Answer:

1. The vertical displacement of projectile at any time t, can be found using the formula.

S = ut + 1/2at^{2}

y = usinθt – 1/2gt^{2}

But we know horizontal displacement,

x = ucosθxt

In this equation g, θ and u are constants. Hence eq.(4) can be written in the form

y = ax + bx^{2}

where a and b are constants. This is the equation of parabola, ie. the path of the projectile is a parabola.

2.

3. The time taken by the projectile to cover the horizontal range is called the time of flight.

Time of flight of projectile is decided by usinθ. The time of flight can be found using the formula s = ut + 1/2 at^{2}

Taking vertical displacement s = 0, a = -g and initial vertical velocity = usinθ, we get

0 = usinθt – 1/2gt^{2}

1/2 gt^{2} = usinθt

t = \(\frac{2 u \sin \theta}{g}\).

Question 5.

R = 0

When θ = 90°

2. Upward motion

u = u sinθ, a = -g, v = 0

V = u + at

0 = u sinθ + ^{–}gt

t_{a} = \(\frac{u \sin \theta}{g}\) ____(1)

Downward motion

u = 0, V= u sinθ, a = +g

V = u + at

u sinθ = 0 + gt

t_{a} = \(\frac{u \sin \theta}{g}\) ____(2)

eq (1) and (2), shows up ward time of flight is equal to downward time of flight.

3. θ, 90 – θ.

Question 6.

“An object that is in flight after being thrown or projected is called a projectile”.

1. Which of the following remains constant throughout the motion of the projectile?

(i) Vertical component of velocity

(ii) Horizontal component of velocity

2. Derive an expression for maximum range of a projectile.

3. Show that range of projection of a projectile for two angles of a projection a and (3 is same where α + β = 90°.

Answer:

1. (ii)

2. If we neglect the air resistance, the horizontal velocity (ucosθ) of projectile will be a constant. Hence the horizontal distance (R) can be found as

R = horizontal velocity × time of flight

3. Range of projectile R = \(\frac{\mathrm{u}^{2} \sin 2 \theta}{\mathrm{g}}\)

Case – 1

at angle α,

R_{α} = \(\frac{\mathrm{u}^{2} \sin 2 \alpha}{\mathrm{g}}\) ____(1)

Case – 2

at an angle β,

From (1) and (2), we get

R_{α} = R_{β}

- What is the nature of its trajectory.
- Arrive at an expression for time of flight of the bullet.
- What is the relation between time of ascent and time of decent, when air resistance is neglected.
- How the relation is affected when air resistance . is considered.

Answer:

1. Parabola

2. The time taken by the projectile to cover the horizontal range is called the time of flight. Time of flight of projectile is decided by usinθ. The time of flight can be found using the formula s = ut + 1/2 at^{2}

Taking vertical displacement s = 0, a = -g and initial vertical velocity = usinθ, we get

0 = usinθt – 1/2gt^{2}

1/2 gt^{2} = usinθt

t = \(\frac{2 u \sin \theta}{g}\).

3. Time of ascent = time of descent

4. Time of descent > time of ascent
