Q. 1. A ball is travelling with uniform translatory motion. This means that

(a) it is at rest.

(b) the path can be a straight line or circular and the ball travels with uniform speed.

(c) all parts of the ball have the same velocity (magnitude and direction) and the velocity is constant.

(d) the centre of the ball moves with constant velocity and the ball spins about its centre uniformly

Answer: C

Q. 2. A metre scale is moving with uniform velocity. This implies

(a) the force acting on the scale is zero, but a torque about the centre of mass can act on the scale.

(b) the force acting on the scale is zero and the torque acting about centre of mass of the scale is also zero.

(c) the total force acting on it need not be zero but the torque on it is zero.

(d) neither the force nor the torque need to be zero.

Answer: b

Q. 5 Conservation of momentum in a collision between particles can be understood from

(a) conservation of energy.

(b) Newton՚s first law only.

(c) Newton՚s second law only.

(d) both Newton՚s second and third law.

Answer: d

Q. 6. A hockey player is moving northward and suddenly turns westward with the same speed to avoid an opponent. The force that acts on the player is

(a) frictional force along westward.

(b) muscle force along southward.

(c) frictional force along south-west.

(d) muscle force along south-west.
