d. If the acceleration vector is always perpendicular to the velocity vector of a moving particle,the velocity vector does not change


Detailed Solutions
Ans 1:

A body acted uopn by a certain force produces acceleration i.e. it undergoes change in it's velocity. hence choice (d) is correct

Ans 4.

since velocity of block when it reaches the ground is given by v=(2gh)1/2 and it is independent of the mass the correct choice will be (b).

Ans 6

We know that Newtons law is invalid in Non interial frame of refrence, now since acceleration is present in Ist case..So answer is B

Ans 7.

Action reaction pair acts on diffrent body and always are in oppsite direction.We will have to draw free body diagram for each part in this case.

Newtons law of Motion

Basic concepts of laws of motion

(1) Newton's first law of motion:-
'A body continues to be in state of rest or uniform motion unless it is acted upon by some external force to act otherwise'

(2) Newton's second law of motion:-
'Rate of change of momentum of a body is proportional to the applied force and takes place in the direction of action of force applied'
where, F=external force applied
p=mv,momentum of the body
SI unit of force is Newton (N).

(3) Impulse is the product of force and time which is equal to the change in momentum

(4) Newton's third law of motion:-
'To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction'

(5) According to the law of conservation of linear momentum
Initial momentum = final momentum

For equilibrium of a body

Some points to note
1. An accelerated frame is called non interial frame while am non accelerated frame is called interial frame
2. Newton Ist law are valid in intertial frame only
3 Apparent weight of a body in the lift
Going Upward with acceleration a
Going Down with acceleration a
4.Always draw free body diagram to solve the force related problems

Relative velocity

-For two objects A and B moving with the uniform velocities VA and VB.
Relative velocity is defined as
where VBA is relative velocity of B relative to A

Similiary relative velocity of A relative to B
Special cases.
For straight line motion,we can just add or subtract to get the relative velocity.
If the objects are moving in the same direction,relative velocity can be get by substracting other.If they are moving in opposite direction ,relative velocity will be get by adding the velocities example like train problems

For two dimensions motion,we will need to add or subtracting components along x & y direction to get the relative velocity
vA=vxai + vyaj
vB=vxbi + vybj

Relative velocity of B relative to A
=vxbi + vybj -(vxai + vyaj)
=i(vxb-vxa) + j(vyb-vya)

For three dimensions motion
vA=vxai + vyaj +vzaz
vB=vxbi + vybj + vzbz

Relative velocity of B relative to A
=vxbi + vybj + vzbz -(vxai + vyaj +vzaz)
=i(vxb-vxa) + j(vyb-vya)+z(vyb-vya)

4. The displacement of the body x(in meters) varies with time t (in sec) as
x=(-2/3)t2 +16t+2

a. what is the velocty at t=0,t=1
b. what is the acceleration at t=0

5. A man runs at a speed at 4 m/s to overtake a standing bus.When he is 6 m behind the door at t=0,the bus moves forward and continues with constant acceleration of 1.2 m/s2
find the following
a. how long does it take for the man to gain the door
b if in the beginning he is 10m behind the door ,will he running at the same speed ever catch up bus?

Detailed Solutions:
3. The time taken to reach the pole is given
R=v0cosθ t
or t=R/v0cosθ

Now equation of motion of vertical motion
at t=R/v0cosθ h=H
H=(v0sinθ)X(R/v0cosθ ) -(1/2)g( R/v0cosθ)2
or H=Rtanθ-gR2/2v02cos2θ


Given x=(-2/3)t2 +16t+2

so velocity at t=0 =16
and velocity at t=1 =(-4/3)+16=44/3

Acceleration is given as =d2x/dt2=-4/3

so acceleration is time independent and it is constant

Displacement at t=0 can be found by simply substituting the values of t=0 in equation (1)

Now v=(-4/3)t+16
when v=0
then t=4/3 sec

Displacement can be found by substituing the value of t=4/3 in equation (1)
=(-32+576+54)/27=598/27 m

Biography of Newton

Isaac Newton (1643 - 1727)

Sir Isaac Newton was an English physicist and mathematician and the greatest scientist of his era.

Isaac Newton was born on 4 January 1643 in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire. His father was a prosperous farmer, who died three months before Newton was born. His mother re-married and Newton was left in the care of his grandparents. In 1661, he went to Cambridge University where he became interested in mathematics, optics, physics and astronomy. In October 1665, a plague epidemic forced the university to close and Newton returned to Woolsthorpe. The two years he spent there were an extremely fruitful time during which he began to think about gravity, and also devoted time to optics and mathematics, working out his ideas about 'fluxions' (calculus).

In 1667, Newton returned to Cambridge, where he became a fellow of Trinity College. Two years later he was appointed second Lucasian Professor of Mathematics. It was Newton's reflecting telescope, made in 1668, that finally brought him to the attention of the scientific community and in 1672 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society. From the mid-1660s, Newton conducted a series of experiments on the composition of light, discovering that white light is composed of the same system of colours that can be seen in a rainbow and establishing the modern study of optics (or the behaviour of light). In 1704 Newton published 'The Opticks' which dealt with light and colour. He also studied and published works on history, theology and alchemy.

However, in 1687, with the support of his friend the astronomer Edmond Halley, Newton published his single greatest work, the 'Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica' ('Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy'). This showed how a universal force, gravity, applied to all objects in all parts of the universe.

In 1689, Newton was elected MP for Cambridge University (1689 - 1690 and 1701 - 1702). In 1696 Newton was appointed warden of the Royal Mint, settling in London. He took his duties at the Mint very seriously and campaigned against corruption and inefficiency within the organisation. In 1703, he was elected president of the Royal Society, an office he held until his death. He was knighted in 1705.

Newton was a difficult man, prone to depression and often involved in bitter arguments with other scientists, but by the early 1700s he was the dominant figure in British and European science. He died on 31 March 1727 and was buried in Westminster Abbey.

Introduction :
Kepler's law
Acceleration due to grawing of earth
Acceleration due to grawing below and above earth surface.

(1) Introduction :

- In our dairy life we have noticed things falling freely downwords towards earth when thrown upwards or dispped from some hight.

- Fact that all bodies irrespective of their masses are accelerated towards the earth mith a constant aceeleation was first recognized by galive (1564-1642)

- The motion of celesh'al bodies such as moon. earth plametes etc. and attrachieve of moon towards earth and arth towards sun is an interasting subject of study since long time.

- Now the question's what is the force that produces such acceleration is which earth attract all bodies towards the centre and what is the law governing this force.

- Is this law is same for both earthly and weshal bodies.

- Answer to this question was given by Newton as he declared that "laws of nature are same for earthly and weshal Bodies".

- The force between any object falling freely towards earth and that between earth and moon are gowerned by the same laws.

- Johnaase kepler (1571-1631) Studied the planetary motion in detail and formulated his three laws of planetary motion, which were available Universal law of grawitation.

(2) Kepler's Law :-

Kepler's law of planetary motion are :-

(i) Law of orbits :-

Each planet revolues around the sun in an elliptical orbit with sun at one of the foci of the ellipse .

Fig (a) An ellipse traced by planet sevolary round the sun.

AO = a - Sewi major axis

BO = b - Sewi minor axis

P - hearest point between planet and sun k/as perihetion

A - farthest point between planet and sun apheiton.

(ii) Law of areas :-

"The line joining planet and the sun sweeps

equal area in equal intervals of time"

This law follows from th e observation that when planet is nearer to the sun
its velocity increases and It appears to be slower when it is farther from the sun.

(iii) Law of periods :-

"The squre of time period of any planet about the sun is propotional to the cube of the semi-major axis."

- If T is the time period of semi major axis a of elliptical orbit then.

T2 x a3 (1)

- If T1 and T2 are time periods of any two planets and a1 and a2 being their semi major axis resp. then

T12 =ka13

T22 =ka23 (2)

This question (2) can be used to find the time period of a planet, when the time period of the other planet and the semi-major axis of orbits of two planets.

(3) Universal law of gravition :-

- Everybody in the universe attracts every other body with a force which is directly proportional to the product of their masses and invessly proportional to the square of distance between them. - Mathematically Newton's gravitation law is if F is the force acting between two bodies of masses M1 and M2 and the distance between them is R then majnitade of force is given as

F =Gm1m2

In vector notation

F =



F =



where G- universal gravitational constant

r^ - unit vector from m1 to m2 and r^ = r1^ - r2^

Gravitational force is attractive constant is

SI - G= 6.67 x 10-11 nm2 kg-2

CGS - G= 6.67 x 10-8 dyn cm2 g-2

Deminsional formula of C1 is [M-1L3T-2]

(4) The gravitational constant :- (Measurement)

(5) Accelesation due to gravity of earth :-

- Earth attracts every object lying an its surface towards its centre with a force known as gravitational towards its centre with a force known as gravitational pull or gravity.
- Whenever force acts on any body it produces acceleration and in case of gravitation this acceleration produced under effect of gravity is known as accelesation due to gravity (g)
- Value of accelesation due to gravity is independent of mass of the body and its value near surface of earth is 9.8 ms-2
- Expression for acceleration due to gravity
Consider mass of earth to be as ME and its redius be RE Suppose a body of mass M (much smaller then that fo earth) is kept at the earth surface. Force eseerted by earth on the body of mass m is

F =



Let the above equation is (4)
The force for the body due to earth produces acceleration due to gravity

(g) in the motion of the body. From Newton's Second law of motion

f=mg ----(5)

from (4) and (5)

g =



which is acceleration due to gravity at earth's surface.

(6) Acceleration due to gravity below and above the earth surface :-

(i) Above earth's surface

- An object of mass m is placed at hight h above the earth's surface

F =



from this it can be concluded that value of g decreases as distance above surface of earth measures now,

g =



g =



which is equation no (7)

go =



* eqn (7) tells us that for small hight h above surface of earth. value of g decreases by factor (1-2h/RE)

- for h is smaller compared to R


g=go(1-2h/RE) Expanding by Binomial theriom

(ii) Below the earth's surface

- If one goes inside the earth surface the value of g again decreases

- P = density of material of earth them


from this accelesation due to gravity at earth’s Surface is

g =



g=4/3GREP ----(8)

g- acceleration due to gravity at depth d below earth's surface

- Body at depth d will experience force only due to portion of reduce (RE-d) of earth's

- outer spnerical shell of thickness d will not exeperience any force

- M is mas of the portion of earth with radius (RE-d) then

g =



M=4/3(RE-d)3 P

g =

-G4/3(RE-d)3 P


g= 4/3G (RE-d)P (9)

Dividing epn (9) by (8)

g/go= (1-d/RE)

or = g=go (1-d/RE) --- (10)

from eqn (10) it is clearer that acceeleration due to gravity also decreases with depth.

Solution for Jan 28 Problems

Solution 1:
a. Let P be the Pressure of the gas.
Pressure of gas=weight of the Piston/A + Atmospheric pressure
=Mg/A + P N/m2

b.Pressure remain constant during the heating process
Intial state of Gas
P1=Mg/A + P

Now we know that

V1 = nRT1

V1 = nRT
Mg/A + P

Final State
P2=Mg/A + P

Now we know that

V2 = nRT2

V2 = 2nRT
Mg/A + P

Workdone by gas=P(V2-V1)

Substituting all the values we get

Change in Internal Energy=nCVΔT

Now from first law of thermodynamics
Heat supplied=Change in Internal Energy + Workdone by gas

Solution 2:
Given that
Pressure at the ice point Pice= 80 cm of Hg
Pressure at the steam point Psteam= 90 cm of Hg
Pressure at the wax bath Pwax= 100 cm of Hg

The temperature of the wax bath measured by the thermometer is

T = (Pwax-Pice)*100

T = (100 - 80)X100/(90-80)
= 20X100/10
=200° C

Solution 3:

Now integrating with upper and lower limit as T1 and T2

Q = mC0[2T2-2T1-a(T12-T22]
Q = mC0(T2-T1)(2+a(T2+T1))

Solution 4:

Workdone in Process AB=P(3V-V)
Workdone in Process BC=0 as volume is constant
Workdone in Process CD=3P(V-3V)
Workdone in Process DA=0 as volume is constant

So net workdone=-4PV

Net heat =Net workdone=-4V
Change in Internal energy =0

Solution of Jan 25 Problems

Solution 1:
Total forces on the piston
Weight of the piston acting downward=200N
Force due to Atmospheric pressure downward =100*103*20*10-4 N=200N
Let P be the Pressure of the gas
Then Force acting due to pressure of gas on the piston upward=PA
Force with the piston is being pulled upward=100N

Total Upward force=Total Downward force
PA + 100=200 +200

Solution 2:

Since O2 is a diaatomic gas
Molecular mass=32 gm

Intial state
Intial volume of gas
P=500*103 N/m2
so V=.314 m3

Second state when At top volume becomes double

Volume=2*.314 =.628m3
Pressure=500*103 N/m2 remains same

So as per ideal gas equation

Workdone by the gas=PV=500*103*.314=157*103 J
Heat transfered=nCP(T2 -T1)
=2*103 *7*8.3*303/32*2
=550*103 J

Third state when Pressure becomes double
P=1000*103 N/m2

As per ideal gas equation
Heat transfered=nCV(T3 -T2)
=2*103 *5*8.3*606/32*2
=785 kJ

So total heat tranfered=550+785=1335 kJ
Final Temperature=1216 K

Solution 3:
Since O2 is a diaatomic gas
Molecular mass=32 gm

Intial state
Intial volume of gas
P0=500*103 N/m2
so V=.157 m3

Second state ( when piston reaches the spring)
v=.2 m3
P=500*103 N/m2
As per ideal gas equation
Temperature becomes=385.5 K

So heat tranfer till that point=nCP(T2 -T1)
=1*103 *7*8.3*82.5/32*2
=74.8 KJ

Third state ( when it compresses the spring)V=.2+0.1*0.25=0.225 m3
P=500*103 + kx/A
=500*103 + 120*103*25*10-2/.1
=800*103 N/m2

As per ideal equation
Temperature becomes=694K
Change in Internal energy=nCV(T3 -T2)=5nR(T3 -T2)/2
=200 KJ

Workdone by the gas =P0Ax + kx2/2
=500*103*.1*.25 + 120*103*.25*.25/2
=16.25 KJ

Total heat supplied in this Process=200+16.25=216.25KJ

So net Heat transfer=291.05 KJ

Solution 4:
Doubling the system should double the energy, so U is an extensive variable.

By repeated application of the Zeroth Law, we can state that all M+N systems are in thermal equilibrium with each other.


Total heat supplied =Workdone + Change in internal energy

So work done=2140-1580=560 J

Let s be the distance moved then
the workdone is given by =Fs
s=.54 m

As per dimension analysis Unit on both sides should be equal
Now since R & R0 both unit are same
Quantity 1+aT+bT5 should be dimension less
so at should be dimension less
so a unit is C-1
similarly bt5 should be dimensionless
so b unit is C-5
