II. Short Answer Questions:

Question 1.

Explain how the definition of work in physics is different from general perception.

Answer:

The term work is used in diverse contexts in daily life. It refers to both physical as well as mental work. In fact, any activity can generally be called work. But in Physics, the term work is treated as a physical quantity with a precise definition. Work is said to be done by the force when the force applied to a body displaces it.

Question 2.

Write the various types of potential energy. Explain the formulate.

Answer:

The energy possessed by the body by virtue of its position is called potential energy.

The various types of potential energies are

1) Gravitational potential energy :

The energy possessed by the body due gravitational force gives gravitational potential energy

u = mgh.

where

u → Gravitational potential energy

m → Mass of the body

g → acceleration due to gravity

h → displacement produced

2) Elastic potential energy :

The energy due to spring force and other similar forces give rise to elastic potential energy

u = 1/2² Where

U → elastic potential energy

K → spring constant

x → elongation produced

3) Electrostatic potential energy

The energy due to electro static force on charges give rise to electrostatic potential energy

U = K \(\frac{\mathrm{q}_{1} \mathrm{q}_{2}}{\mathrm{r}}\) where

K = \(\frac{1}{4 \pi \varepsilon_{0}}\) Constant

q_{1}, q_{2} – magnitude of charges

d – displacement made by any one of the charges or by both charges.

Question 3.

Write the differences between conservative and non-conservative forces. Give two examples each.

Answer:

Conservative forces:

A Force is said to be a conservative force if work done by or against the force in moving the body depends only on the initial and final positions of the body and net depend on the nature of the path followed between the two positions

Examples:

Elastic spring force, electrostatic force, magnetic force, gravitational force.

Non-conservative force:

A force is said to be non-conservative if the work done by or against the force in moving a body depends on the path between initial and final positions. This means the value of work-done is different in different paths.

Examples:

- Frictional forces are non-conservative forces as the work done against friction depends on the length of the path moved by the body.
- The force due to air resistance, viscous forces are also non conservative forces because work done by or against these forces depends upon the velocity of motion.

Question 4.

Explain the characteristics of elastic and inelastic collision Elastic collision:

Answer:

In a collision, the total K.E of the bodies before collision is equal to the total K.E. of the bodies after collision, then it is an elastic collision.

Total K.E. before collision = Total K.E. after collision

Inelastic collision:

In a collision, the total K.E. of the bodies before collision is not equal to total K.E. after collision then it is called as inelastic collision Even though K.E. is not conserved but total energy is conserved. After collision of the two colliding bodies stick together such collision are called as perfectly inelastic a plastic collision.

Question 5.

Define the following

Answer:

a) Coefficient of restitution

b) Power

c) Law of conservation of energy

d) Loss of Kinetic energy in inelastic collision

Answer:

a) Coefficient of restitution :

Coefficient of restitution defined as the ratio of velocity of separation (after collision) to velocity of approach (before collision)

The coefficient of restitution =

b) Power :

Power is defined as the rate of work done or energy delivered

P = \(\frac { W }{ t }\) = \(\vec{F}\).\(\vec{V}\)

c) Law of conservation of energy :

Law states that “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It may be transformed from one to another but the total energy of an isolated system remains constant”

d) Loss of kinetic energy in inelastic collision

The difference in total K.E. before collision and total K.E. after collision’s is equal to loss of K.E. during collision.

∆Q = Total K.E. before collision – Total K.E. after collision.

III. Long Answer Questions:

Question 1.

Explain with graphs the difference between work done by a constant force and by a variable force.

Answer:

a) Work done by a constant force:

When a constant force ‘F’ acts on a body the small work done (dw) by the force in producing a small displacement ‘dr’ is given by dw = (F cos θ) dr.

The total W.D in producing a displacement from initial position r_{i}, to final position r_{f} is,

The graphical representation of the W.D by constant force is shown below

The area under the graph shows the work done by constant force.

b) Work done by a variable force :

When the component of a variable force F acts on a body, the small work done (dw) by the force in producing a small displacement dr is given by dw = (F cos θ) dr [ Here F cos 0 is the component of variable forces]. where F and 0 one variables To total W.D for the displacement from initial position r_{i} to final position r_{f} is given by the relation.

A graphical representation of the work done by a variable force is shown below. The area under the graph gives the W.D. by variable force.

Question 2.

State and explain work energy principle Mention any three examples for it.

Answer:

Law:

Work done by a force on the body changes the kinetic energy of the body, ie change in K.E. = work done. This is called work energy theorem.

Proof:

Consider a body of mass m at rest on a frictionless horizontal surface. The work done (W) done by the constant force (F) for displacement (S) in the same direction is W = FS → (1)

The constant force is given by F = ma → (2)

We know that v² = u² + 2a

W = 1/2 mv² – 1/2 mu²

Here the term 1/2 mv² indicates K.E.

1/2 mv² – 1/2mu² = ∆K (change in K.E.)

∵ W = ∆K

Hence proved

Examples:

- A moving hammer drives a nail into the wood. Being in motion, it has K.E. or ability to do work.
- A fast moving stone can break a windowpane. The stone has K.E. due to its motion and so it can do work.
- The kinetic energy of air is used to run windmills.

Question 3.

Arrive at an expression for power and velocity. Give some examples for the same.

Answer:

Power is defined as the rate of work done or energy delivered. P = \(\frac { w }{ t }\)

Relation between power and velocity:

The work done by a force F for a displacement \(\overline{dr}\) is dw = \(\overline{F}\).\(\overline{dr}\)

Examples:

1) A 100 Watt bulb consumes 100 joule of electrical energy in one second

2) Electrical motor supply enough power to bring water from a bore well.

Question 4.

Arrive at an expression for elastic collision in one dimension and discuss various cases.

Answer:

Consider two elastic bodies of masses m_{1} and m_{2} moving in a straight line (along positive direction) on a frictionless horizontal surface. In order to have collision assume m_{1} moves faster than m_{2}.

Let U_{1} and _{1} be the initial velocities of m_{1} and m_{2} respectively. (u_{1} > u_{2}). After collision let the masses m_{1} and m_{2} moves with velocities v_{1} and v_{2} respectively.

Incase of elastic collision both linear momentum and kinetic energies are conserved

∴ from law of conservation of linear momentum

Total momentum before (Pi)

collision = Total momentum afer collision (Pf)

m_{1}u_{1} + m_{2}u_{2} = m_{1}v_{1} + m_{2}v_{2} → (1)

m_{1}(u_{1} – v_{1}) = m_{2}(v_{2} – u_{2} → (2)

Further

Total K.E. before collision (KE_{i}) = Total K.E. after collision (KE_{f})

rearranging

u_{1} – u_{2} = – (v_{1} – v_{2}) → (5)

From this it is dear that for any elastic collision, relative speed of two elastic bodies after the collision has the same magnitude as before collision but in opposite direction.

Rewriting the above equation for v_{1} & v_{1}

v_{1} = v_{2} + u_{2} – u_{1} → (6)

(or)

v_{2} = v_{1} + u_{1} – u_{2} → (7)

To find velocities of v_{1} & v_{2}

Substituting (7) in (2)

m_{1}(u_{1} – v_{1}) = m_{2}(v_{1} + u_{1} – u_{2} – u_{2})

m_{1}(u_{1} – v_{1}) = m_{2}(v_{1} + u_{1} – 2u_{2})

m_{1}u_{1} – m_{1}v_{1} = m_{2}v_{1} + m_{2}u_{1} – 2m_{2}u_{2}

m_{1}u_{1} – m_{2}u_{1} + 2m_{2}u_{2} = m_{1}v_{1} + m_{2}v_{1}

u_{1}(m_{1} – m_{2}) + 2m_{2}u_{2} = v_{1}(m_{1} + m_{2})

Case 1:

When bodies have same mass is m_{1} = m_{2} = m

The velocities get interchanged.

Case 2:

When both bodies have same mass m_{1} = m_{2} = m, but second body at rest in u_{2} = 0

v_{1} = 0, v_{2} = u_{1}

After collision the first body comes to rest and the second body moves with the velocity of first body.

Case 3 :

The first body very much lighter than the second body in m_{1} << m_{2}, \(\frac{\mathrm{m}_{1}}{\mathrm{~m}_{2}}\) << 1.

the ratio \(\frac{\mathrm{m}_{1}}{\mathrm{~m}_{2}}\) = 0 and also second body at rest, (u_{2} = 0)

Dividing numerator and denominator of equation 8 by m_{2}

Similarly dividing numerator and denominator of equation 9 by m_{1
}

From this, the conclusion arrived is the first body which is lighter returns back (rebounds) in opposite direction with the same initial velocity as it has a negative sign. The second body since it has heavier mars continues to remain at rest even after the collision.

Case 4 :

The second body is very much lighter than the first body.

m_{2} << m_{1} then the ratio = 0 \(\frac{\mathrm{m}_{2}}{\mathrm{~m}_{1}}\) and also if the target is at rest ie second body at rest (u_{2} = 0)

Dividing equation (8) both the numerator and denominator by m_{1}

This shows that the first body which is heavier continues to move with same velocity and the second body which is lighter will move with twice the initial velocity of the first body, ie lighter body is thrown away from the point of collision.

Question 5.

What is inelastic collision? In which way it is different from elastic collision mention few examples in day to day life for inelastic collision.

Answer:

In a collision, the total K.E. on the bodies before collision is not equal to the total K.E. after collision then it is called as inelastic collision, i.e

Total K.E after collision ≠ Total K.E. before collision

Whereas in case of elastic collision Total K.E. before collison is equal to total K.E after collision.

Example: Collision between two vehicles, collision between a ball and floor.

IV. Numerical Problems:

Question 1.

Calculate the work done by a force of 30N in lifting a load of 2kg to a height of 10m (g = 10ms^{-2})

Solution:

F = 30N

m = 2kg

s = 10 m

g = 10 ms^{-2}

θ = 0

W.D = ?

W.D = \(\overline{F}\).\(\overline{S}\) = FS cos θ

W.D = 30 x 10

= 300 J

Question 2.

A ball with a velocity of 5 ms^{-1} impinges at an angle of 60° with the vertical on a smooth Horizontal plane. If the coefficient of restitution is 0.5 find the velocity and direction after the impact.

Solution:

U_{1} = 5 ms^{-1}

θ = 60°

e = 0.5

v = ?

Initial momentum = final momentum along the original line of m of con.

∵ Coefficient of restitution is 0.5 (less than 1) the collision is inelastic

Applying component of velocities. The x component of velocity is

u sin θ = v sin Φ → (1)

But the magnitude of y component is not same using coefficient of restitution

Question 3.

A bob of mass m is attached to one end of the rod of negligible mass and length r, the other end of which is pivoted freely at a fixed center O as shown in the figure. What initial speed must be given to the object to reach the top of the circle?. (Hint: use law of conservation of energy). Is this speed less or greater than speed obtained in the section 4.2.9?

Solution:

T.E. at lowest point (E_{1}) = Total energy at (E_{2})

E_{1} = E_{2}

At the lowest point potential energy = u_{1} = 0

Kinetic energy = KE_{1} = 1/2 mv_{1}²

Total energy at lowest point = E_{1} = u_{1} + KE_{1}

E_{1} = 0 + 1/2 mv² → (1)

∴ E_{1} = mv²_{1} … (1)

At the top of circle:

Potential energy = u_{2} = 2mgr

K.E energy at top = 1/2mv_{2}²

Total energy at highest

point = 2mgr + 1/2 mv_{2}² → (2)

According to law of conservation of energy E1 = E2

Question 4.

Applying principle of conservation of momentum along y-axis

Question 5.

A bullet of mass 20g strikes a pendulum of mass 5 kg. The centre of mass of the pendulum rises at a vertical distance of 10 cm. If the bullet gets embedded into the pendulum, calculate its initial speed.

Solution:

mass of bullet m_{1} = 20 x 10^{-3}kg

mass of pendulum m_{2} = 5kg

Let the speed of the bullet = u_{1}

∵ The pendulum at rest u_{2} = 0

h = 10 x 10^{-2}m

Let v be the common velocity after the bullet embedded inside the bob.

This common velocity ‘v’ is the initial velocity of combined bullet and bob.

W.K.T

v² – u² = 2as

Here v = 6; u = 0, a = – g s = h

In inelastic collision total energy is only conserved but kinetic energy is not conserved. A part of kinetic energy is converted into some other form of energy such as sound, heat energy.

Note: The linear momentum is also conserved.

Question 3.

Is there any network done by external forces on a car moving at a constant speed along a straight road?

Answer:

Since the car is moving at a constant speed along a straight line, displacement is caused. So work in done by the force.

II. Additional Questions:

Question 1.

The sign of work done by a force on a body is important to understand. State carefully if the following quantities are positive or negative.

(a) Work done by man lifting a bucket out of the well by means of a rope tied to the bucket

Solution:

Work done is positive, because the bucket moves in the direction of force applied by the man.

(b) work done by gravitational of force in the above case.

Solution:

work done by gravitational force in negative because the bucket is moving upwards against gravitational force.

(c) Work done by friction on a body sliding down an inclined plane.

Solution:

Work done is negative, as frictional force is opposite to direction of motion.

(d) work done by the applied force on a body moving on a rough horizontal plane with uniform velocity.

Solution:

Work done is positive because the applied force acts in the direction of motion of the body

(e) Work done by the resistive force of air on a vibrating pendulum in bringing it to rest.

Solution:

Work done is negative, because the resistive force of air acts in a direction opposite to the direction of motion of the vibration pendulum.

Question 2.

Comets move around the sun in highly elliptical orbits. The gravitational force an the comet due to sun is not normal to the comet velocity in general. Yet the W.D by the gravitational force over every complete orbit of the comet is zero why?

Solution:

The gravitational force acting on the comet is a conservative force. The work done by the conservative force over any path is equal to the negative of change in potention energy. Over a complete orbit of any shape, there is no change in P.E of the comet. Hence no work is done by the gravitational force on the comet.

Question 3.

A body is moving unidirectionally under the influence of a source of constant power. How displacement (S) and time (t) are related?

Answer:

By work energy theorem

W = Pxt = 1/2 mv²

v² = \(\frac { 2pt }{ m }\)

Question 4.

A molecule in a gas container hits a horizontal wall with speed 200 ms^{-1} and angle 30° with normal and rebounds with same speed. Is momentum conserved in collision? Is the conserved is elastic or in elastic.

Solution:

Momentum is always conserved, whether collision is elastic or in elastic

Let m be the mars of the molecule and M be the mass of the wall. As the wall is heavy the molecule rebounding with same velocity does not produce any velocity to wall.

K.E. before collision = Ki = 1/2 m(200)² + 0

= 2 x 10^{4} x 1/2m – 3

K.E. after collision = Kf = 1/2 m(200)² + 0

= 1/2 x m x 2 x w^{4}

∵ Ki = Kf

Collision is elastic in nature

Question 5.

An elastic spring of force constant K is compressed by a amount x. Show that its potential energy is 1/2 kx².

Answer:

Consider the plot of spring force Fs versus displacement x of the block attached to free end of a spring.

According to Hookes law Fs = – k x_{m}

The work done by the spring force for an extension x_{m} is

Ws = Area ∆OBA = 1/2 AB x OB

= 1/2 Fs X_{m}

= 1/2 (-kx_{m}) x_{m}²

Ws = – 1/2 kx_{m}²

In order stretch the spring slowly an external force F equal to and opposite to Fs has to be applied. So work done by the external force F is

W = – Ws = + 1/2 kx_{m}²

This work done is stored as P.E of the spring

u = 1/2 kx²

Question 6.

Obtain the relation between momentum and K.E

Answer:

Consider an object of mass on moving with velocity v. Then its linear momentum is \(\overline{p}\) = \(\overline{mv}\) and its kinetic energy

k.E = 1/2 mv²

multiply and divide by m both numerator and denominator

Question 7.

Explain motion of a body in vertical circle.

Answer:

Consider a body of mass m attached to one end of marsless and inextensible string executes circular motion is a vertical plane with other end fixed at 0. The length of the string equal to radius.

There are two forces acting an mass m.

i) Gravitational force (mg) which acts downwards

ii) Tension along the string (T)

Applying Newtons II law

mg sin θ = m a_{t}

mg sin θ = – m\(\frac { dv }{ dt }\) → (1)

Where a_{t} = tangential acceleration

In the radial direction

T – mg cos θ = m a_{r}

T – mg cos θ = \(\frac{\mathrm{mv}^{2}}{\mathrm{r}}\)

Where a_{r} = \(\frac{\mathrm{mv}^{2}}{\mathrm{r}}\) = centripetal or radial acceleration from the above 2 equations four important facts to get understood are.

1) The mass is having tangential acceleration (g sin θ) for all values of 0 (expect θ =0°). It is clear that vertical circular motion is not a uniform circular motion

2) From (1) & (2) as the magnitude of velocity is not constant in the course of motion, the Tension in the string is also not constant.

3) From equ(2) T = mg cos θ + \(\frac{\mathrm{mv}^{2}}{\mathrm{r}}\), indicates that in section A and D (for – π/2 < θ < π/2) cosθ is five, ie the term mg cos θ is always > 0.

Hence Tension can not vanish even when the velocity vanishes.

4) The equation (2) \(\frac{\mathrm{mv}^{2}}{\mathrm{r}}\) = T – mg cos θ further indicates that in section B and C

(for π/2< θ < 3π/2) cosθ is negative.

(-mg con θ) is always greater than zero. Hence velocity cannot vanish even tension vanishes.

Consider two positions, lowest position (1) and the highest position 2.

Let v_{1} be the velocity at the lowest point 1.

Let v_{2} be the velocity at the lowest point 2.

The direction of velocity is always tangential to the circular path at all points.

Let T_{1} and T_{2} be the Tensions at lowest end highest point respectively. Tension at each point act towards the centre. Tension and Similarly velocity can be determined by applying the law of conservation of energy.

For the lowest point (1)

when the body is at its lowest point (1) the gravitational force mg which acts vertically downwards and Tension (T_{1}) vertically upwards.

For the highest point:

At the highest point (2) both gravitational force mg and tension T_{2} act vertically downwards.

Here the term can (v_{1}² – v_{2}²) be found by applying law of conservation of energy at point 1 and 2.

Total energy at 1 = Total energy at 2

E_{1} = E_{2}

P.E at 1, u_{1} = 0

K.E at 1, KE_{1} = 1/2 mv_{1}²

T.E at 1 = 1/2 0 + mv_{1}² = 1/2 mv_{1}² → (8)

Similarly

P.E at 2, u_{2} = mg(2r)

K.E at 2, K.E_{2} = 1/2 mv²

T.E at 2 = mg(2r) + 1/2 mv_{2}_{2} → (9)

equating (8) and (9)

(v_{1}² – v_{2}²) = 4gr → (10)

Substituting (10) in (7)

Minimum speed at the highest point (2)

In order to loop the circle, the body must have a minimum speed at point 2 – To find minimum speed at 2 consider 2.

Consider T_{2} = 0 in equation … (6)

At highest point 2 the body should have a minimum velocity v_{2} = \(\sqrt{gr}\) to stay in circular path.

Minimum speed at the lowest point:

From equation 10

v_{1}² – v_{2}² = 4gr

v_{1}² – gr = 4gr

v_{1}² = \(\sqrt{5gr}\)

The body must have a speed of \(\sqrt{5gr}\) at the lowest point 1.

ie v_{1} ≥ \(\sqrt{5gr}\) so that the mars can stay in circular path.

Comparing values of v_{1 }& v_{2} it is clear that minimum speed at the lowest point should be \(\sqrt{5}\) times more than the minimum speed at the highest point, so that the body loops in a vertical circle.

Question 8.

What is perfect in elastic collision?

Answer:

Obtain an expression for velocity after collision. A perfect or complete in elastic collision is the are in which the object stick permanently after collision such that they move with a common velocity.

Expression for common velocity:

Let two bodies of masses m_{1} and m_{2} move with initial velocities u_{1} and u_{2} respectively before collision. After perfect inelastic collision both two objects move together with a common velocity v.

Since linear momentum is conserved during collisions.

m_{1}u_{1} + m_{2}u_{2} = (m_{1} + m_{2})v

V = \(\frac{\mathrm{m}_{1} \mathrm{u}_{1}+\mathrm{m}_{2} \mathrm{u}_{2}}{\left(\mathrm{~m}_{1}+\mathrm{m}_{2}\right)}\)

This gives the expression for common velocity.

Question 9.

Obtain an expression for loss of K.E. in perfect elastic collision.

Answer:

Let KE_{i} be the initial total kinetic energy before collision and KE_{f} be the total final kinetic energy after collision.
