1.

A boy weighs 360 N on Earth.

i) What would be his approximate weight on the moon?

ii) What is the reason for your answer?

i) Weight of the body on the moon is one-sixth of the weight of the body on the earth.

Weight of the body = 1/6 x Weight of moon = 1/6 x 360 = 60 N

ii) W = mg

And, acceleration due to gravity on moon as one-sixth that on the earth. Therefore, weight on the moon is also one-sixth of the earth.

i) Define the term momentum.

ii) How is force related to the momentum of a body?

iii) State the condition when the change in momentum of a body depends only on the change in its velocity. 


i) Momentum is defined as the product of mass and velocity of a body.

ii) Force  = Rate of change in momentum

straight F space equals space increment straight P divided by increment straight t space

iii) When velocity of the body is much smaller than the velocity of light, then the mass is constant.
