• $\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$

• $\sqrt{2}$

3.

300 J of work is done in sliding a 2 kg block up an inclined plane of height 10 m. Taking g =10 m/s2, work done against friction is

• 200J

• 100 J

• zero

• 1000 J

4.

A particle moves along a straight line OX. At a time t (in second) the distance x ( in metre ) of the particle from O is given by x = 40 + 12 t - t3 . How long would the particle travel before coming to rest?

• 24 m

• 40 m

• 56 m

• 16 m

5.

• 0.4 cm

• 2.4 cm

• 1.8 cm

• 1.2 cm

6.

The displacement of particle is given by  .What is its acceleration?

• $\frac{2{\mathrm{\alpha }}_{2}}{3}$

• $-\frac{2{\mathrm{\alpha }}_{2}}{3}$

• ${\mathrm{\alpha }}_{2}$

• Zero

7.

The area of the acceleration-displacement curve of a body gives

• impulse

• change in momentum per unit mass

• change in KE per unit mass

• total change in energy

# 8.The speed of earth's rotation about its axis is o. Its speed is increased to x times to make the effective acceleration due to gravity equal to zero at the equator. Then x is1 8.5 17 34

C.

17

Earth rotates about its own axis in 24 h.

So,            T =24 x 60 x 60 s

So, angular speed of earth about its own axis

≈ 17

ω' = 17ω

So, value of x is 17.

9.

• 15 s

• 10.98 s

• 5.49 s

• 2.745 s

10.

A motor cycle is going on an overbridge of radius R. The driver maintains a constant speed. As the motor cycle is ascending on the overbridge, the normal force on it

• increases

• decreases

• remains the same

• fluctuates erratically
