Linear relationship

Linear Relationship

(a) Quantity B may represent time.

(b) Quantity A is velocity if motion is uniform.

(c) Quantity A is displacement if motion is uniform.

(d) Quantity A is velocity if motion is uniformly accelerated.

Answer: a, c, d

Q. 10 A spring with one end attached to a mass and the other to a rigid support is stretched and released.

(a) Magnitude of acceleration, when just released is maximum.

(b) Magnitude of acceleration, when at equilibrium position, is maximum.

(c) Speed is maximum when mass is at equilibrium position.

(d) Magnitude of displacement is always maximum whenever speed is minimum.

Answer: a, c

Q. 11 A ball is bouncing elastically with a speed 1 m/s between walls of a railway compartment of size 10 m in a direction perpendicular to walls. The train is moving at a constant velocity of 10 m/s parallel to the direction of motion of the ball. As seen from the ground,

(a) the direction of motion of the ball changes every 10 seconds.

(b) speed of ball changes every 10 seconds.

(c) average speed of ball over any 20 second interval is fixed.

(d) the acceleration of ball is the same as from the train

Answer: b, c, d
