A truck starts from rest and accelerates uniformly at 2.0 m s–2. At = 10 s, a stone is dropped by a person standing on the top of the truck (6 m high from the ground). What are the (a) velocity, and (b) acceleration of the stone at = 11 s? (Neglect air resistance.)

Given,

Initial velocity of the truck, u = 0

Acceleration, a = 2 m/s2

Time, t = 10 s

a)

According to the equation of motion, we have

v = u + at

= 0 + 2x10

= 20 m/s

The final velocity of the truck and hence, of the stone is 20 m/s.

At t = 11 s, the horizontal component (vx) of velocity, in the absence of air resistance, remains unchanged.

i.e.,                vx = 20 m/s

The vertical component (vy) of velocity of the stone is given by the first equation of motion as,

vy = u + aδ

where,

δt = 11 – 10 = 1 s, and

a
y = g = 10 m/s

∴           vy = 0 + 10 × 1

= 10 m/s

The resultant velocity (v) of the stone is given as:

Let,  be the angle made by the resultant velocity with the horizontal component of velocity vx,

Therefore,

b)

When the stone is dropped from the truck, the horizontal force acting on it becomes zero. However, the stone continues to move under the influence of gravity. Hence, the acceleration of the stone is 10 m/s2 and it acts vertically downward.

Define inertia.

The property by virtue of which the body cannot change its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line, unless an external force is acting on the body is called as Inertia.

When the branches of an apple tree are shaken, the apples fall down. Why?

The apple fall from an apple tree when it shaken because of inertia of rest. Apple is in a state of rest and when the tree is suddenly shaken, apples still tends to remain in it's same state of rest whereas branches move.

So, the apples fall down.
