Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 1

### If a rock is brought from the surface of the moon

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 1

B is the correct option.If a rock is brought from the surface of the moon to the earth, its weight will change but not its mass. Mass is an invariant physical quantity whereas weight of a body (w = mg) is variable as the value of acceleration due to gravity (g) changes

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 2

### A body is weighed at the poles and then at the equator. The weight

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 2

A body weighs more at the poles than at the equator, because the earth is not a perfect square, but it is flattened at the poles. The distance between the equator and the center of the earth is less than at the poles; therefore the force of gravitation is more at the poles than at the equator; and so it weighs more at the poles than equator.
Hence, the weight of a body at the poles will be greater than at the equator.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 3

### Consider a satellite going round the earth in a circular orbit. Which of the following statements is wrong ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 3

Centripetal acceleration works on it.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 4

A missile is launched with a velocity less than the escape velocity. The sum of its kinetic and potential energy is

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 4
Kinetic energy would be obvious = 0.5mv^2
and the potential Energy would be= -Gm/r^2
Now total energy = 0.5mv^2 – Gm/r^2 hence would be negative as r approaches infinity.
Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 5

SI unit of g is

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 6

SI unit of G is

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 6

In SI units, G has the value 6.67 × 10-11 Newtons kg-2 m2. The direction of the force is in a straight line between the two bodies and is attractive. Thus, an apple falls from a tree because it feels the gravitational force of the Earth and is therefore subject to “gravity”.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 7

Choose the correct statement of the following:

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 7

So all objects, regardless of size or shape or weight, free fall with the same acceleration. In a vacuum, a beach ball falls at the same rate as an airliner. ... The remarkable observation that all free falling objects fall with the same acceleration was first proposed by Galileo Galilei nearly 400 years ago.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 8

Maximum weight of a body is

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 8

At the center gravity is 0 ,gravity decreases as we go down into the earth ,also it decreases as we go above the surface of earth.
So weight w = mg is maximum on the surface because at surface the value of g is maximum.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 9

If the distance between two masses be doubled, then the force between them will become

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 9

The Gravitational force between two objects is inversely proportional to the square of distance between them.
So, if the distance between two objects is doubled, then the gravitational force becomes 1 / 2x2.
That is ¼.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 10

A body falls freely towards the earth with

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 10

The correct answer is C as body falls freely towards the earth with uniform acceleration (g).

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 11

If the mass of a body is M on the surface of the earth, then its mass on the surface of the moon will be

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 11

The correct option is B.
Mass of the body is universally the same. It is not affected by acceleration due to gravity and thus is the same everywhere. Hence, mass of body will be same i.e. M at both earth surface & moon surface.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 12

Weight

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 13

The value of g near the earth's surface is

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 14

A geostationary satellite

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 14

A geostationary satellite revolves around the earth with the same angular velocity and in the same sense as done by the earth about its own axis, i.e. west-east direction. A polar satellite revolves around the earth's pole in north-south direction.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 15

The force of gravitation between two bodies depend upon

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 16

When an object is thrown up, the force of gravity

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 17

The force of gravitation exists

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 17

The correct answer is A as The force of gravitation exists Everywhere in the universe

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 18

1 kg wt is equal to

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 18 1 kg-wt and express it in newton. 1 kilogram weight is that gravitational force which acts on a body of mass 1 kg. This means that the weight of 1 kgmass is 9.8 N.
Hence the answer is option (a)
Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 19

Mass of oil is 11040 kg and volume is 12 m³, its density would be

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 19

Density,
ρ = M / V = 11040 / 12
= 920 kg/m³

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 20

The value of G does not depend on

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 21

The mass of the Jupiter is 1.9 × 1027 kg and that of the sun is 1.99 × 1038 kg. The mean distance of the Jupiter from the sun is 7.8 × 1011 m. Speed of the Jupiter is (assuming that Jupiter moves in a circular orbit around the sun)

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 21

F = GMm / r²
= 6.67×10-¹¹ × (1.99×10³⁰) × (1.9×10²⁷) / (7.8×10¹¹)²
= 4.14×10²³ N
Now let its speed of jupiter be v, then
F = mv² / R
⇒ v =√(FR / m)
=√{(7.8×10¹¹)×(4.10×10²³) / (1.9×10²⁷)}
= 1.304×10⁴ m/sec

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 22

The acceleration due to gravity

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 23

SI unit of weight is

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 23

Weight is nothing but the force of attraction exerted by the earth on a body.
Now since the SI unit of force is Newton and the weight is also a force, this means that the SI or weight is Newton as well.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 24

Gravitational force which acts on 1 kg is

Detailed Solution for Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 24

Gravitational force which acts on 1 kg is 9.8 N.

Test: Gravitation - 2 - Question 25

Weight is
