#### Question 2:

Observe the ﬁgure and answer the questions.

Sachin and Sameer started on a motorbike from place A, took the turn at B, did a task at C, travelled by the route CD to D and then went on to E. Altogether, they took one hour for this journey. Find out the actual distance traversed by them and the displacement from A to E. From this, deduce their speed. What was their velocity from A to E in the direction AE? Can this velocity be called average velocity?

#### Answer:

Actual distance travelled by Sachin and Sameer from A to E = AB + BC + CD + DE = 3 + 4 + 5 + 3 = 15 km

Displacement from A to E = AB + BD + DE = 3 + 3 + 3 = 9 km

$\mathrm{Speed}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{motorbike}\mathrm{from}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{E}=\frac{\mathrm{Total}\mathrm{distance}\mathrm{travelled}\mathrm{from}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{E}}{\mathrm{Total}\mathrm{time}\mathrm{taken}\mathrm{from}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{E}}=\frac{15}{1}=15\mathrm{km}/\mathrm{h}$

$\mathrm{Velocity}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{motorbike}\mathrm{from}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{E}=\frac{\mathrm{Total}\mathrm{displacement}\mathrm{from}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{E}}{\mathrm{Total}\mathrm{time}\mathrm{taken}\mathrm{from}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{E}}=\frac{9}{1}=9\mathrm{km}/\mathrm{h}$

Yes, this can be called the average velocity of the motorbike from A to E.

#### Question 4:

A bird sitting on a wire, ﬂies, circles around and comes back to its perch. Explain the total distance it traversed during its ﬂight and its eventual displacement.

#### Answer:

The total distance travelled by the bird during its flight = 2$\times $(Distance between the point where the bird was sitting and the point from where it takes a turn)

The eventual displacement of the bird is zero as it returns to its initial point i.e. where it was sitting.

#### Question 5:

Explain the following concepts in your own words with everyday examples : force, work, displacement, velocity, acceleration, distance.

#### Answer:

Force: It is any kind of push or pull on a body due to another body when the bodies interact with each other. It is a vector quantity. For example, a person applies a force in the form of push or pull to open a door.

Work: It is defined as the work done by a force that causes a displacement in an object. It is a scalar quantity. For example, a child does work when he drags a toy car on the ground.

Displacement: It is the shortest distance between the initial and final position of an object. It is a vector quantity. For example, when we go to a mall for shopping from our house and then return to the house, the displacement would be 0 as our initial position (house) and final position (house) is same.

Velocity: Velocity is defined as the rate of change of displacement. It is a vector quantity. For example, a car running on a straight road has some velocity.

Acceleration: The rate of change of velocity is known as acceleration. It is a vector quantity. For example, if a car is moving on a straight with variable speed, it will posses some acceleration. In case the speed of the car remains same but the direction of car changes, then also the car would be accelerating.

Distance: It is the actual path length covered by an object during its motion. It is a scalar quantity. For example, when we go to a mall for shopping from our house and then return to the house, the distance travelled by us would be twice the distance between our house and the mall.

#### Question 6:

A ball is rolling from A to D on a ﬂat and smooth surface. Its speed is 2 cm/s. On reaching B, it was pushed continuously up to C. On reaching D from C, its speed had become 4 cm/s. It took 2 seconds for it to go from B to C. What is the acceleration of the ball as it goes from B to C?

#### Answer:

The acceleration of the ball between A to B is zero as the speed and direction of the ball is constant. After point B, a force is applied. Thus, the ball will get accelerated.

$\mathrm{Acceleration}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{ball}\mathrm{from}\mathrm{B}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{C}=\frac{\mathrm{Change}\mathrm{in}\mathrm{velocity}\mathrm{from}\mathrm{B}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{C}}{\mathrm{Time}\mathrm{taken}\mathrm{for}\mathrm{this}\mathrm{change}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Acceleration}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{ball}\mathrm{from}\mathrm{B}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{C}=\frac{4-2}{2}=1\mathrm{m}/{\mathrm{s}}^{2}$

#### Question 7:

Solve the following problems.

(a) A force of 1000 N was applied to stop a car that was moving with a constant velocity. The car stopped after moving through 10 m. How much is the work done?

(b) A cart with mass 20 kg went 50 m in a straight line on a plain and smooth road when a force of 2 N was applied to it. How much work was done by the force?

#### Answer:

(a) $\mathrm{Work}\mathrm{done}\mathrm{by}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{force}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{stop}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{car}=F\times S=1000\times 10=10000\mathrm{J}$

(b) $\mathrm{Work}\mathrm{done}\mathrm{by}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{force}=F\times S=2\times 50=100\mathrm{J}$
