Solution 20

No the distance covered by a body cannot be less than the magnitude of its displacement.

Solution 21

Solution 28

Solution 29

Solution 30

Solution 31

Frank Modern Certificate Solution for Class 9 Physics Chapter 2 - Motion in One Dimension Page/Excercise 79

Solution 1

Speed of a body can be defined as distance covered by the body in unit time.

Solution 2

Average speed of a body can be defined as ratio of total distance covered by a body In total time.

Solution 3

Both speed and average speed  have same unit and that is ms-1.

Solution 4

No speed and average speed  of a body have different meaning.

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.

Solution 6

20m/s can be converted inti km/hr as
20 m/s = (20 X 3600)/1000 = 72 km/hr.

Solution 7

Solution 8

SI unit of velocity is ms-1.

Solution 9

No as their direction is different  they don't have same velocity.

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.

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).

Solution 12

Yes uniform speed and constant speed have same meaning.

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).

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.

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.

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.

Solution 17

Speed and velocity of a moving body become equal when the body moves in a straight line.

Solution 18

When the velocity of a moving body doesn't change with time then the velocity of the body is said to be constant or uniform.Yes uniform velocity and constant velocity are one and the same thing.

Solution 19

Acceleration of a body is rate of change of its velocity with respect to the time.

Solution 20

SI unit of acceleration is ms-2.

Frank Modern Certificate Solution for Class 9 Physics Chapter 2 - Motion in One Dimension Page/Excercise 80

Solution 21

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.

Solution 22

No the relation S = v X t cannot used to find the total distance covered by a body moving with non-uniform speed.

Solution 23

Yes area under a speed time graph in a given interval gives the total distance covered by a body.

Solution 24

Yes the motion is uniform and the uniform speed is given by area under speed time graph divided by time interval.
So speed = 500/20 =25 m/s.

Solution 25

Positive acceleration corresponds to situation when velocity is continuously increasing with respect to the time.

Solution 26

Negative acceleration corresponds to situation when velocity is continuously decereasing with respect to the time.

Solution 27

If a body falls towards earth then it would have a positive  acceleration.

Solution 28

If a body has acceleration of 8.5 ms-2 then it means its velocity is increasing at a rate of 8.5 ms-1 per second.

Solution 29

SI unit of retardation is ms-2.

Solution 30

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.

Solution 31

-30 m/s is speed.

Solution 32

Velocity corresponds to the rate of change of displacement.

Solution 33

No the speed of a body cannot be negative.

Solution 34

A flying bird most likely to have a non uniform velocity.

Solution 35

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.

Solution 36

Equation of motion gives us the picture of motion of moving body.

Solution 37

First equation of motion is v = u + at.
Second equation of motion is s= ut + 1/2a t2.
Third eqution of motion is v2 - u2 =2as.

Solution 38

Four variables are present in each equation of motion.

Solution 39

Four variables are present in each equation of motion and if any of three is known to us then fourth can be easily find with the help of these equation of motion.

Solution 40

SI unit of acceleration and retardation is ms-2.

Solution 41

Distance is the physical quantity  which is equal to the area under speed-time graph.

Solution 42

A uniformly accelerated motion is one in which speed is constantly increasing or decreasing with time while a non uniform motion is one in which speed is not constantly changing with time.

Solution 43

No we cannot use this relation for a body moving with uniform acceleration.

Solution 44

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.

Solution 45

(i) Motion of blades of an electric fan.
(ii) Motion of moon around earth.

Solution 46

A straight line curve on speed time graph indicates that acceleration of the body is uniform  and a zigzag or curved line indicates that acceleration of a body is not uniform.

Solution 47

Two quantities are directly proportional to each other.

Solution 48

As we distance = speed  X  time.
Speed = 42 km/hr.
Time = 10 m = 1/6 hr.
Distance = 42 X 1/6 =7 km.

Solution 49

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.

Solution 50

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.

Solution 51

Solution 52

No a body cannot have a speed negative.

Solution 53

No2 distance covered by body during nth second is not more than the distance covered in n seconds.

Solution 54

Solution 55

Solution 56

If speed time graph is moving upward then the body is accelerating and if it is starting from origin then it means the body has initial velocity =0.

Solution 57

Speed time graph is moving upward then the body is accelerating and if it is not starting from origin then it means the body has some initial velocity.

Solution 58

Solution 1

Displacement and velocity are two examples of vectors.

Solution 2

SI unit of retardation is ms-2.

Solution 3

Velocity is the physical quantity associated with the rate of change of displacement with time.

Solution 4


Solution 5

There are three types of rectilinear motion Translational , vibrational and rotational.

Solution 6

A body is said to have a uniform velocity if it covers equal displacement in equal interval of time.

Solution 7

Acceleration is a vector quantity.

Solution 8

Slope of speed time graph represents acceleration.

Solution 9

If a stone is dropped from a certain height then it undergoes non uniform velocity motion.

Solution 10

This means the body has a positive acceleration.

Solution 11

Solution 12

(i) No a body with constant acceleration cannot have a zero velocity.
(ii) No a body with an acceleration in vertical direction cannot move horizontally.
(iii) No in an accelerated motion a body cannot have a constant velocity.

Solution 13

Solution 14

(i) In displacement-time graph a straight line parallel to time axis shows that body is at rest position.
(ii) In displacement-time graph a straight line inclined to the time axis with an acute angle means body is moving with a positive velocity.

Solution 15

No a accelerating body cannot have constant speed.

Solution 16

(i) In displacement-time graph a straight line shows body is at rest if it is parallel to time axis and shows a body is moving with uniform velocity if it is inclined to x axis.
(ii) In velocity-time graph a straight line shows body is moving with uniform constant velocity if it is parallel to x axis and shows body is moving constant acceleration of it is inclined to x axis.

Solution 17

Average speed during different time intervals for a uniform motion is same.

Solution 18

Velocity of a stone thrown vertically upward at its maximum height is Zero.

Solution 19

Velocity of a stone  thrown vertically upwards decrease because acceleration due to gravity is acting on downward direction.

Solution 20

Linear velocity would be equal to linear speed if body is moving in a straight line.

Solution 21

Solution 22

Frank Modern Certificate Solution for Class 9 Physics Chapter 2 - Motion in One Dimension Page/Excercise 84

Solution 23

Solution 24

During circular motion
(a) Speed remains constant.
(b) Velocity changes continuously.

Solution 25

The statement is not correct , the correct statement is "the earth is moves round the sun with constant speed".

Solution 26

As in circular motion direction changes continuously with motion so after two complete revolutions we can say that direction has changed infinite times.

Solution 27

As after completing 3 revolution in circular motion the displacement is = 0. so the ratio of distance covered to the displacement is infinite.

Solution 28

The graph becomes straight line with positive slope with time axis and represents almost a constant acceleration.

Solution 29

Retardation is negative of acceleration so retardation the body is +3.4 ms-2.

Solution 30

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.

Solution 31

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 32


Solution 33

Solution 34

slope of velocity time graph represents acceleration of the body.

Solution 35

Solution 37

Solution 38

Solution 39


Solution 40

Solution 41

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).

Solution 42

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.

Solution 43

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.

Solution 44

Solution 45

Solution 46

Solution 47

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.

Solution 48

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.

Solution 49

(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.

Solution 50

initial velocity u = 20 m/s.
Acceleration = 5 m/s2.
T = 2 s.
We know v= u + at.
v= 20 + 5X2= 30 m/s.

Solution 51

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.

Frank Modern Certificate Solution for Class 9 Physics Chapter 2 - Motion in One Dimension Page/Excercise 86

Solution 52

Solution 53

Solution 54

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.

Solution 55

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.

Solution 56

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.

Solution 57

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.

Solution 58

Train travels first 30 km at speed of 30 km/hr.
Time taken by train to cover this distance is = distance/speed = 30/30 = 1 hr.
Let speed of train to cover next 90 km is v .
Then time taken by train to cover these 90 km is 90/v.
Total time becomes T = 1 +90/v = ( v + 90)/v.
Total distance= 120 km.
Average speed = 60 km/h  (given)
However  average is given by = total distance /total time.
So  (120 v)/(v +90) = 60
120 v = 60v +5400
60v = 5400
v= 5400/60 =90 km/hr.
so train has to cover those 90 km at a speed of 90 km/hr.

Solution 59

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.

Solution 60

(iv) Velocity of both the vehicles is 60 m/s when they meet.
(v) Vehicle B is ahead at the end of 7th sec and by 70 m.
