- Name the process in which outside of the road is raised little above the inner.
- Obtain an expression for the optimum speed to avoid skidding (considering to friction)

Answer:

1. Banking of roqd

2.

Consider a vehicle along a curved road with angle of banking θ. Then the normal reaction on the ground will be inclined at an angle θ with the vertical.

The vertical component can be divided into N Cosθ (vertical component) and N sinθ (horizontal component). The frictional force can be divided into two components. Fcosθ (horizontal component) and F sinθ (vertical component).

From the figure

N cos θ = F sinθ + mg

N cosθ – F sinθ = mg ______(1)

The component Nsin0 and Fsinθ provide centripetal force. Hence

N sinθ + F cos θ = \(\frac{\mathrm{mv}^{2}}{\mathrm{R}}\) ______(2)

eq (1) by eq (2)

Dividing both numerator and denominator of L.H.S by N cosθ. We get

This is the maximum speed at which vehicle can move over a banked curved road.

- Does it violate Newtons second law of motion?
- If not, how will you account for the non acceleration of the cart?
- Will the speed of the cart increase, decrease or remain the same if the horse applied more force?
- A body of mass 5kg is acted upon by two perpendicular forces 8N and 6N. Give the magnitude and direction of the acceleration of the body.

Answer:

1. No.

2. The force applied by the car is balanced by the frictional force. Hence the cart moves with constant velocity.

3. If the horse is applied more force, the speed of the cart increases.

4. The resultant force,

F = 10N

We know, F = ma

10 = 5 × a

acceleration, a = \(\frac{5}{10}\) = 2 m / sec^{2}

The angle of resultant force,

θ = tan^{-1} 6/8

θ = 36°52^{1}

The angle of acceleration θ = 36°52^{1}.

Question 2.

- Friction is the force which opposes the relative motion between two surfaces in contact with each other. What is a limiting static friction? State the laws related to this.
- Show that the coefficient of friction is equal to the tan of the angle between the resultant and normal reactions.
- For a body of mass 5kg on a plane at a limiting static friction of 30 degrees. What is the force of friction?

Answer:

1. The maximum value of static friction is called limiting static friction.

- The magnitude of the limiting friction is independent of the area of contact between the surfaces.
- The limiting static friction is directly proportional to the normal reaction R.

ie f α R

f_{s} = µ_{s}R.

2. Angle of friction is the angle whose tangent gives the coefficient of friction.

Consider a body placed on a surface. Let N be the normal reaction and limit is the limiting friction. Let ‘θ’ be the angle between Resultant vector and normal reaction. From the triangle OBC,

∴ tanθ = µ.

3. Tangent of the angle cient of friction.

µ_{s} = tanθ

µ_{s} = tan 30

µ_{s} = \(1 / \sqrt{3}\)

Friction F = µ_{s}mg

= \(1 / \sqrt{3}\) × 5 × 10

F = \(\frac{50}{\sqrt{3}}\)N.

Where K is a constant pf proportionality. When we take the limit ∆t → 0, we can write

3.

Hence force F = mg.

Question 4.

Recoil of gun is based on the principle of conservation of momentum.

- State the principle of conservation of momentum.
- Explain the reoil velocity of gun.
- A bullet of mas 100g is fired from a rife of mass 200 kg with a spped of 50 m/s. Calculate the recoil velocity of the rife.

Answer:

1. According to law of conservation of linear momentum, if the external force acting on a body is zero, total linear momentum remains constant. According to Newton’s second law.

F = \(\frac{d p}{d t}\)

If F = 0, \(\frac{d p}{d t}\) = 0 i.e; P is constant.

2. Let M, m be the mass of gun and bullet respectively. Let V and ν be the velocities of gun and bullet after firing.

According to consevation of momentum

Total momentum before firing = Total momentum after firing

∴ O = MV + m ν

-MV = mν

The above equation shows that when bullet moves in forward direction, the gun moves in back direction. This motion of gun is called recoil of gun.

3. M = 200kg, m = 100g = 0.1kg

ν = 50 m/s, V = ?

MV = mν

200 × V = 0.1 × 50

V = \(\frac{0.1 \times 50}{200}\)m/s.

Question 5.

While firing a bullet, the gun must be held tight to the shoulder.

- Which conservation law helps you to explain this
- “In the firing process, the speed of the gun is very low compared to the speed of the bullet.” Substantiate the above statement using mathematical expressions.
- A shell of 20kg moving at 50m/s bursts in to two parts of masses 15kg and 5kg. If the larger part continues to move in the same direction at 70 m/s. What is the velocity and direction of motion of the other piece.

Answer:

1. Conservation of momentum.

2. Total momentum is conserved

∴ mu + MV = 0

V = \(\frac{-m u}{M}\) M is very large. Hence v is small

3. MV = m_{1} u_{1} + m_{2} u_{2}

20 × 50 = 5u_{1} + 15 × 70

5u_{1} = ^{–}50

u_{1} = ^{–}10m/s.

Question 6.

While firing a bullet, the gun must be held tight to the shoulder.

- This is a consequence of______
- Show that recoil velocity is opposite to the muzzle velocity of the bullet.
- A gun of mass 5 kg fire a bullet of mass 5g, vertically upwards to a height of 100m. Calculate the recoil velocity of gun.

Answer:

1. Conservation of linear momentum.

2. Let M be the mass of gun and m be the mass of bullet. When gun fires, the gun and bullet acquire velocities V and v respectively.

According to conservation of momentum.

Total momentum before firing = Total momentum afterfiring

m × o + M × o = mu + MV

O = mv + MV

ie. – MV = mv

V = \(\frac{-m v}{M}\)

3. M = 5kg, m = 5 × 10^{-3} kg, h = 100m

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

0 = u^{2} + 2 × 10 × 100

Velocity of bullet,

1. Due to inertia of rest, the body continues in the state of rest.

2. Newtons first law:

Everybody continues in its state of rest or of uniform motion along a straight line unless it is compelled by an external unbalanced force to change that state:

3. Consider a body of mass ‘m’ moving with a momentum \(\vec{p}\). Let \(\vec{F}\) be the force acting on it for time internal ∆t. Due to this force the momentum is changed from \(\vec{p}\) to p + ∆p. Then according to Newtons second law, we can write

Where K is a constant pf proportionality. When we take the limit ∆t → 0, we can write

Question 8.

a. Impulse has the unit similarto that of

- Momentum
- force
- time
- Energy

b. A man falling from certain height receives more injuries when he falls on a marble floor than when he falls on a heap of sand. Explain. Why?

c.
