A person trying to lose weight by burning fat lifts a mass of 10 kg upto a height of 1 m 1000 times. Assume that the potential energy lost each time he lowers the mass is dissipated. How much fat will he use up considering the work done only when the weight is lifted up ? Fat supplies 3.8×10^{7} J of energy per kg which is converted to mechanical energy with a 20% efficiency rate. Take g=9.8 ms^{−2}:
2.45 ×10^{−3} kg
6.45 x×10^{−3} kg
9.89 ×10^{−3} kg
9.89 ×10^{−3} kg
When a rubber band is strecthed by a distance x, it exerts a restoring force of magnitude F = ax +bx^{2}, where a and b are constants. The work done in stretching are unstretched rubber-band by L is
aL^{2} +bL^{2}
This question has statement 1 and statement 2. Of the four choices given after the statements, choose the one that best describes the two statements.
If two springs S_{1} and S_{2} of force constants k_{1} and k_{2}, respectively, are stretched by the same force, it is found that more work is done on spring S_{1} than on spring S_{2}.
Statement 1: If stretched by the same amount, work done on S1, will be more than that on S_{2}
Statement 2 : k_{1} < k_{2}
Statement 1 is false, Statement 2 is true
Statement 1 is true, Statement 2 is false
Statement 1 is true, Statement 2 is the correct explanation for statement 1
Statement 1 is true, Statement 2 is the correct explanation for statement 1
