Solution 4
No speed and average speed  of a body have different meaning.
Question 5
Which is greater?
(i) 60 km/hr
(ii) 15 m/s
Solution 5
60 km/hr can be converted into m/s to compare with 15m/s.
60 km/hr = (60 X 1000)/3600 = 16.66 m/s. so speed 60 km/hr is greater.
Question 6

Question 10
Arrange the following speeds in the increasing order:
(i) A bicycle moving with a speed of 36 km/h.
(ii) A car moving with a speed of 2 km/min.
(iii) An athlete running with a speed of 7 m/s.
Solution 10
we convert all the speeds in m/s to compare them.
36 km/hr = (36 X 1000)/3600 = 10m/s.
2 km/min = (2 X 1000)/60 = 33.3 m/s.
7 m/s = 7 m/s.
So increasing order of speed is 7m/s < 10m/s <33m/s.
Question 11
A boy covers half of his journey with a uniform speed of u and the other half with a uniform speed of v. What is the average speed for the whole journey?
Solution 11
let  total distance be S.
Boy covers distance S/2  with speed  u then time taken by him to cover this distance would be T1 =S/2u.
Again boy covers rest of the distance S/2 with speed v then time taken by him to cover this distance would be T2  =S/2v.
So total time taken by boy to cover the distance S is T = T1 + T2.
Total time T= S/2 (1/u +1/v) = s(u+v)/2uv.
And average speed  = S/T = 2uv/(u+v).
Question 12
Does uniform speed mean constant speed?
Solution 12
Yes uniform speed and constant speed have same meaning.
Question 13
A body goes from P to Q with a uniform speed of u and immediately returns back to P at a uniform speed of v. What is the average speed for the whole journey?
Solution 13
let S be the distance between P and Q.
Body covers forward journey distance S  (P to Q) with speed  u then time taken by him to cover this distance would be T1 =S/u.
Again body covers backward journey distance S (Q to P) with speed v then time taken by him to cover this distance would be T2  =S/v.
So total time taken by body to cover the distance S is T = T1 + T2.
Total time T= S (1/u +1/v) = s(u+v)/uv.
And average speed  = 2S/T = 2uv/(u+v).
Question 14
In Q. 13 above, what is the average velocity for the whole journey?
Solution 14
As body goes from P to Q and then return back to P so the displacement of the body would be zero and hence average velocity would also be zero.
Question 15
A car travels from P to Q at a uniform speed of 20 ms-1 and immediately turns back and travels towards Q with a uniform speed of 30 ms-1. What is the average speed for the whole journey?
Solution 15
let distance between P and Q is S.
Speed of car while travelling from P to Q is 20 m/s.
Let car take time T1 to travel from P to Q then T1= S/20.
Speed of car while travelling from Q to P is 30 m/s.
Let car take time T2 to travel from Q to P  then T2= S/30.
Total time = T1 + T2 =  S/20 +S/30 =S/12.
So average speed of journey = total distance/ total time = 2S/(S/12) = 24 m/s.
Average speed of journey is 24 m/s.
Question 16
How does speed differ from velocity?
Solution 16
Speed is a scalar quantity whereas velocity is a vector quantity. So speed doesn't have its direction and velocity has a particular direction.
Question 17

Chapter 2 - Motion in One Dimension Excercise 80

Question 1
The acceleration of a moving body is constant in magnitude and direction. Must the path of the body be a straight line? If not, given an example.
Solution 1
If the acceleration of a moving body is constant in magnitude and direction then the path of the body must not be a straight line because in circular motion also acceleration of a body is constant in magnitude and always directed towards the centre.
So the path of the body may be a straight line and may be a circular one.
Question 2
Solution 2
No the relation S = v X t cannot used to find the total distance covered by a body moving with non-uniform speed.
Question 3
The area under a speed-time graph in a given intervals gives the total distance covered by a body irrespective of its motion being uniform or non-uniform.

Question 4
The area of the right triangle under a speed-time graph is 500 m, in a time interval of 20 s. What is the speed of the body? Is the motion uniform or non-uniform?

Write the SI unit of retardation.
Solution 9
SI unit of retardation is ms-2.
Question 10
A car traveling at 60 km/h, stops on applying brakes in 10 seconds. What is its acceleration?
Solution 10
first convert 60 km/h in m/s.
60 km/hr =(60 X 1000)/3600 = 16.7 m/s.
This is initial velocity of car i.e u = 16.7 m/s.
As car stops in 10 seconds so final velocity is =0 m/s.
So acceleration = (v-u)/t = (0-16.7)/10 = -1.67 ms-2.
Acceleration of car is = -1.67 ms-2.

Question 15
Find the initial velocity of a car which is stopped in 10 seconds by applying brakes. Retardation due to brakes is 2.5 ms-2.
Solution 15
Let initial velocity be u.
Final velocity is v= 0 m/s.
Time taken by body to come to rest = 10 sec.
Retardation =2.5 ms-2.
We know v = u +at.
Then u = v - at.
u = 0 - (-2.5 X 10) = 25 m/s.
So initial velocity of the body is 25 m/s.
Question 16

Question 24
How does the slope of a speed-time graph give the acceleration of a body moving along a straight line?
Solution 24
Slope of a graph is given as rate of change of y coordinates to the x coordinate. In speed time graph speed is on the y axis and time is on the x axis. And we define acceleration as rate of change of speed with respect to time. So slope of a speed time graph gives acceleration.
Question 25

Question 28
A car travels at a uniform speed of 42 km/h. In 10 minutes, how much distance would it cover?
Solution 28
As we distance = speed  X  time.
Speed = 42 km/hr.
Time = 10 m = 1/6 hr.
Distance = 42 X 1/6 =7 km.
Question 29
The initial velocity of a car is 10 ms-1. It moves with an acceleration of 2 ms-2. What will be its speed after 10 seconds?
Solution 29
Initial velocity u =10 ms-1.
Acceleration a = 2 ms-2.
Time t = 10 s.
By using first equation of motion
V = u + at.
V = 10 + 2 X 10.
V (final velocity) = 30 ms-1.
Question 30
The speed of a car increases from 10 km/h to 64 km/h in 10 seconds. What will be its acceleration?
Solution 30
Initial velocity u = 10 km/hr. = (10 X 1000)/3600 = 8.33 ms-1.
Final velocity = 64 km/hr = (64 X 1000)/3600 = 17.77 ms-1.
Time = 10 s.
Acceleration = (v-u)/t = (17.77- 8.33)/10 = 9.44/10 = 0.94 ms-2.

Question 8
The average time taken by a normal person to react to an emergency is one fifteenth of a second and is called the 'reaction time'. If a bus is moving with a velocity of 60 km/h and its driver sees a child running across the road, how much distance would the bus had moved before he could press the brakes? The reaction time of the people increases when they are intoxicated. How much distance had the bus moved if the reaction time of the driver were 1/2 s under the influence of alcohol?
Solution 8
Bus is moving with initial velocity of u = 60 km/hr.
60 km/hr = ( 60 X 1000)/3600 = u = 16.66 ms-1.
Reaction time = t =1/15 sec.
Distance would the bus had moved before pressing the bus would be = u X t.
S = 16.66 X 1/15 = 1.1 m.
Now if the driver is intoxiacated then reaction time would be t = 1/2 seconds.
So S becomes S = u X t = 16.66 X 1/2 = 8.33m.
Question 9
A girl had designed a clap switch for a science exhibition that enabled her to switch on or off an alarm just with clapping of hands. While testing her device in a hall, she noticed that once the alarm has sounded it followed with another one due to echo of the clap, that is, the sound reflected by the walls. She recorded the two soundings of alarm with her tape recorder and found out that time difference in between them is 0.1 s. If the distance of the walls be 15 m, calculate the speed of sound.
Solution 9
Time difference of 0.1 s denotes the time taken by sound to go from device to wall and back to wall. As the distance between wall and device is 15 m so total distance covered by sound is 2 X 15 m =30 m.
So speed of sound is = total distance covered/time taken = 30/0.1 =300 ms-1.
So speed of sound is 300 ms-1.

Solution 4

Question 5
Draw the distance-time graphs of the bodies P and Q starting from rest, moving with uniform speeds with P moving faster than Q.
Solution 5
Question 6
A body covers half the distance with the speed A and the other half with speed B. What will be the average speed for the whole journey?
Solution 6
let  total distance be S.
Boy covers distance S/2  with speed  A then time taken by him to cover this distance would be T1 =S/2A.
Again boy covers rest of the distance S/2 with speed B then time taken by him to cover this distance would be T2  =S/2B.
So total time taken by boy to cover the distance S is T = T1 + T2.
Total time T= S/2 (1/A +1/B) = s(A+B)/2AB.
And average speed  = S/T = 2AB/(A+B).
Question 7
A car travels 30 km at a uniform speed of 60 km/h and the next 30 km at a uniform speed of 20 km/h. What is its average speed?
Solution 7
Car travls 30 km distance with speed 60 km/hr
Time taken by car to travel this distance = 30/60 = 0.5 hr.
Car travels another distance of 30 km with speed of 20 km/hr.
Time taken by car to travel this distance = 30/20 = 1.5 hr.
Total time taken = 1.5 + 0.5 = 2 hr.
Total distance  = 30+ 30 = 60 km.
Average speed of car = 60/2 = 30 km/hr.
Question 8
On a 120 km track, a train travels the first 40 km at a uniform speed of 30 km/h. How fast must the train travel the next 80 km, so as to average 60 km/h for the entire trip.
Solution 8
Train travels first 40 km at speed of 30 km/hr.
Time taken by train to cover this distance is = distance/speed = 40/30 = 4/3 hr.
Let speed of train to cover next 80 km is v .
Then time taken by train to cover these 80 km is 80/v.
Total time becomes T = 4/3 +80/v = ( 4v + 240)/3v.
Total distance= 120 km.
Average speed = 60 km/h (given)
However average is given by = total distance /total time.
So (120 X 3 X v)/(4v +240) = 60
360 v = 240v +14400
120v = 14400
v= 14400/120 =120 km/hr.
so train has to cover those 80 km at a speed of 120 km/hr.

Question 11
Two friends leave Delhi for Chandigarh in their cars. A  starts at 5 am and moves with a constant speed of 30 km/h, whereas B starts at 6 am and moves with a constant speed of 40 kmh-1. Plot the distance-time graph for their motion and find at what time the two friends will meet and at what distance from Delhi.
Solution 11
Question 12
A car accelerates uniformly from a velocity of 18 km/h to 36 km/h in 15 min. What is its acceleration?
Solution 12
Initial velocity of car u = 18 km/hr.
Final velocity of car v= 36 km/hr.
Time taken by body = 15 min. = 1/4 hr
Acceleration of car a = ( v- u )/t = (36 - 18 ) X 4 = 72 kmh-2.
Question 13
A car is moving with a speed of 50 km/h. One second later, its speed is 55 km/h. What is its acceleration?
Solution 13
Initial speed of car u = 50 km/h.
Final speed of car v = 55 km/h.
Time taken by car to attain this speed is = 1 sec. = 1/3600 hr.
Acceleration of the car is = (55 - 50 )X 3600 = 18000 kmh-2.
Question 14
Convert the following accelerations:
(a) 7200 km/h2 into m/s2
(b) 1/36 m/s2 into km/h2
Solution 14
(a) 7200 km/h2 = ( 7200 X 1000)/(3600 X 3600) = 5/9 ms-2.
(b) 1/36 m/s2 = (1 X3600 X 3600)/(36 X1000) = 3600 kmh-2.
Question 15
A body moves along a straight road with a speed of 20 m/s and has a uniform acceleration of 5 m/s2. What will be its speed after 2 s?
Solution 15
initial velocity u = 20 m/s.
Acceleration = 5 m/s2.
T = 2 s.
We know v= u + at.
v= 20 + 5X2= 30 m/s.
Question 16
A car moving with a uniform acceleration of 10 m/s2 on a straight road changes its speed from 10 m/s to 30 m/s. Find the time lapsed for the change of speed.
Solution 16
acceleration of the car = 10 ms-2.
Initial velocity  u = 10 m/s.
Final velocity v = 30 m/s.
We v = u + at.
T = (v- u)/a
T = (30 - 10 )/10 = 2 sec.
Time taken by car is 2 sec.

Question 2
A car accelerates to a velocity of 30 m/s in 10 s and then decelerates for 20 s so that it stops. Draw a velocity-time graph to represent the motion and find:
(a) the acceleration,
(b) the deceleration,
(c) the distance travelled.
Solution 2
Question 3
A body moves along a straight track. Half of the distance it covers with a velocity of 40 ms-1 and the remaining half with a velocity of 60 ms-1. What is the average velocity for the whole journey?
Solution 3
Let total distance be S.
Body covers distance S/2 with speed 40 ms-1 then time taken by him to cover this distance would be T1 =S/2 X 40.
Again body covers rest of the distance S/2 with speed 60 ms-1 then time taken by him to cover this distance would be T2 =S/2 X 60.
So total time taken by body to cover the distance S is T = T1 + T2.
Total time T= S/2 (1/40 +1/60) = s(40+60)/2 X 40 X 60 = s/48.
And average speed = S/T = 48 ms-1.
So average speed is 48 ms-1.
Question 4
A body goes from A to B with a velocity of 30 ms-1 and comes back from B to A with a velocity of 20 ms-1. What is the average velocity of the body for the whole journey?
Solution 4
As  displacement for the motion from A to B and B to A is zero so the average velocity of the body would be zero.
Question 5
A body starts to slide over a horizontal surface with an initial velocity of 0.5 ms-1. Due to friction, its velocity decreases at the rate of 0.05 ms-2. How much time will it take for the body to stop?
Solution 5
Initial velocity of body u = 0.5 ms-1.
Final velocity of the body v = 0 ms-1 as body comes to rest finally.
Retardation of body = 0.05 ms-2.
We know that v = u + at.
0 = 0.5 - 0.05t
T = 0.5/0.05 = 10 sec.
Question 6
A train is moving at a speed of 90 km/h. On applying brakes, a retardation of 2.5 ms-2 is created. At what distance before, should the driver apply the brakes to stop the train at the station?
Solution 6
Initial speed of train = 90 km/hr
Speed of train imn m/s = ( 90 X 1000 )/3600 = 25 m/s.
Retardation of the train = 2.5 ms-2.
Final speed of train at platform = 0 m/s.
We know that v2 - u2 = 2as.
0 - 25 X25 = 2 X (-2.5) X s
S = 625/5 = 125 m.
So driver should apply the brakes 125 m before the platform.
Question 7
A 50 m long train passes over a bridge at a speed of 30 km/h. If it takes 36 seconds to cross the bridge, calculate the length of the bridge.
Solution 7
speed of train = 30 km/hr.
Speed in m/s = ( 30 X1000 )/3600 = 50/6 m/s.
Lenth of train = 50 m.
Let lenth of bridge be s metre.
Train has to cover total distance of 50 +s to cross that bridge.
Time taken by train to cover this distance = 36 sec.
So as time taken = total distance /total time taken.
36 = ( 50 +s ) X 6/ 50.
1800 = 300 + 6s
6s = 1500.
S = 1500/6 =  250m
Length of bridge is 250 m.
