One Dimensional Motion Tour

This tour is given to give the feel of the whole chapters plus the type of questions and ways to tackle tehm.This is quite beneficial for anybody studing One dimensional Motion.

One dimensional Motion is the study of the motion along an straight line.Complete Study material has been provided at the below link
Study Material

Most Important Points to remember about One dimension Motion
1. Distance and displacement are not the same thing.Distance is scalar while displacement is a vector quantity.Distance is never zero in a round trip while the displacement will be zero.Example When a person moves in a cirle and return to it normal position,it displacement is zero while the distance tarvelled is the circumference of the circle
2. Speed is calculated over distance while velocity over displacment.So Average speed in a round trip will never be zero while average velocity will be zero
3. Magnitude of Instantanous velocity is equal to instantanous speed
4. When a particle moves with constant velocity, its average velocity, its instantaneous velocity and its speed are all equal
5. Acceleration is defined as change in velocity per unit time.A body moving with constant speed but with varying direction will have accleration as the velocity is changing.

Most Effective way to solve a one dimensional motion problem

1. First visualize the question
2. Take starting point as origin as and take one direction as positive and other as negative.This is required as we will be dealing with Vector quantities
3. Write down what is given in the question and what is required
4. If it is uniform motion ,then you can utilize the One dimensional motion equation.It the motion is varying and relation is given for that motion.Then we can utilize one dimensional motion derivative equation to find out the solutions
5. Calculate as require

Formula's are

Example -1
A bus start at Station A from rest with uniform acceleration 2m/sec2.Bus moves along a straight line
1.Find the distance moved by the bus in 10 sec?
2.At what time,it velocity becomes 20m/sec?
3 How much time it will take to cover a distance of 1.6km

Now first step to attempt such question is to visualize the whole process.Here the bus is moving along a straight line and with uniform acceleration
Now what we have
Intial velocity=0

Now since it is uniform motion we can use given motion formula's in use

1. distance (s)=?
time(t)=10 sec

So here the most suitable equation is
Substituting given values
s=(0)10 +(1/2)2(10)2=100 m

2. velocity(v)=20 m/s
So here the most suitable equation is
or t=10 sec

So here the most suitable equation is
or t=40 sec

Example -2
A object is moving along an straight line.The motion of that object is described by
where a,b,c are constants and x is in meters and t is in sec.
1. Find the displacement at t=1 sec
2. Find the velocity at t=0 and t=1 sec
3. Find the acceleration at t=0 and t=1 sec

Now first step to attempt such question is to visualize the whole process.Here the object is moving along a straight line and its motion is described by the given equation
Now we
Now since its motion is described by the given equation,following formula will be useful in determining the values

1. x=? t=1sec

Here by substituting t=1 in given equation we get the answer
x=a+b+c m

2.v=? t=0,v=? t=1
Here we are having the displacement equation,so first we need to find out the velocity equation
So here the most suitable formula is
or v=d(at+bt2+ct3)/dt
or v=a+2bt+3ct2
Substituing t=0 we get
v=a m/s
Substituing t=1 we get
v=a+2b+3c m/s

3 a=? t=0,a=? t=1
Now we are having the velocity equation,we need to first find the acceleration equation.
So here the most suitable formula is
or a=d(a+2bt+3ct2)/dt
Substituing t=0 we get
a=2b m/s2
Substituing t=1 we get
a=2b+6c m/s2

Numericals for Class XII with detaileds Solutions

A charge Q is divided in two parts q and Q - q separated by a distance R. If force between the two charges is maximum, find the relationship between q & Q.

Solution: F=K q(Q-q)/r2
for max. &min.dF/dq=0 , q=Q/2

Question2:A circular disc X of radius R is made from an iron pole of thickness t, and another disc Y of radius 4R is made from an iron plate of thickness t/4. then the relation between the moment of inertia Ix and Iy is
(A) Iy=32Ix
(B) Iy=16Ix
(C) Iy=64Ix
(D) None of these

If t is the thickness and R is the radius of the disc, then mass = πR2
ρ = density of the material of the disc.
Moment of inertia of disc X,

Moment of inertia of disc Y,
From equation (i) and (ii)

On a planet a freely falling body takes 2 sec when it is dropped from a height of 8 m, the time period of simple pendulum of length 1 m on that planet is


On a planet, if a body dropped initial velocity (u = 0) from a height h and takes time t to reach the ground
then h=(1/2)gpt2
or gp=4m/s2
T=3.14 sec

A car is moving with uniform velocity on a rough horizontal road. Therefore, according to Newton's first law of motion
(a) No force is being applied by its engine
(b) An acceleration is being produced in the car
(c) The kinetic energy of the car is increasing
(d) force is surely being applied by its engine

Solution4: d Since, force needed to overcome frictional force

Question 5:
A particle is projected upwards. The times corresponding to height h while ascending and while descending are a and b respectively.Find the velocity of projection

If a and b are time of ascent and descent respectively then time of flight

Now T=2u/g

So u=g(a+b)/2
