5.

Is it possible to have an accelerated motion with a constant speed? Explain. 


Yes. The velocity of particle in circular motion is variable or the circular motion is accelerated even though the speed of particle is uniform. 

The velocity vector is constant in magnitude but changing in direction. Since the direction changes, acceleration is not unifrom.

i) When does a force do work?

ii) What is the work done by the moon when it revolves around the Earth? 

i) Work is said to be done only when the force applied on a body makes the body move, that is, there is displacement of the body.

ii) The work done by the moon when it revolves around the earth is zero. This is because the work done for a closed path is zero.

Calculate the change in kinetic energy of a moving body if it’s velocity is reduced to 1/3rd of the initial velocity. 


Given:

Initial velocity = v

Final velocity = v/3

Initial kinetic Energy, K subscript 1 equals 1 half mv squared
Final Kinetic Energy, K2 = Error converting from MathML to accessible text. equals space 1 over 9 cross times 1 half straight space mv squared
Change in Kinetic energyequals 1 half straight space mv squared space minus space 1 over 9 cross times 1 half mv squared

A force is applied in i) a non- rigid body and ii) a rigid body. How does the effect of the force differ in the above two cases? 


A force when applied on a rigid object does not change the inter-spacing between its constituent particles and therefore it does not change the dimensions of the object, but causes motion in it.

On the other hand, a force when applied on a non-rigid object, change the inter-spacing between its constituent’s particles and therefore cause a change in its dimensions.
