Detailed Solutions

Ans 4:


Velocity is given


Now acceleratio is zero

Putting this value velocity equation

Ans 5:

The distance s1 covered by the car during the time it is accelerated is given by

Which gives

Similary in the decelerated motion,distance covered is
Which gives

SO Total distance travelled during the whole journey

Let t1 be the time taken during accelerated motion then
v=at1 or t1=v/a
and Let t2 be the time taken during deccelerated motion then
v=bt2 or t2=v/b

Total timetaken

So average speed =total distance/total time taken

Ans 7:
If a body is projected with a given velocity u at angle θ and (90-θ) to the horizontal,it will have same range R given by

The corresponding times if flight are

Ans 8

Range is given by
and time taken by


Dividing 1 by 3
1/3=(u/uc)2 ----5
Dividing 2 by 4

T/Tc=u/uc ---6

From 5 and 6

Ans 10:

Intial vertical component of velocity is zero
so h=(1/2)gt2
t=2√2 sec
