If the net external force on the body is zero, its
As F = ma,
and F= 0,
therefore, a = 0 as m cannot be 0
When a bull pulls a cart, the force that helps the bull to move forward is the force exerted by
Bull exert the force on the ground , and ground exert equal force on cart and bull as well which help them to move forward
Dust can be removed out of a blanket using
When a blanket is bitten with a stick or something then particles of blanket come into motion while dust particles remains in rest thus comes out which shows law of inertia
Which law governs the phenomenon that a tablecloth is pulled out from under a setting of chinaware without damaging it?
According to Newton’s first Law, the cloth is set in motion but the chinaware continues to remain in its state of rest; and hence it is not damaged.
Two masses are in the ratio 1:5. What is ratio of their inertia?
Force of inertia = ma
Let the masses be 1x and 5x
Force of inertia for 1st body= 1x * a
Force of inertia for 2nd = 5x * a
Ratio= x * a / 5x * a = 1:5
We slip on a rainy day due to
In rainy day, the rain water forms a layer on the road. This layer works as a lubricant which decreases the friction. Due to less friction, we slip on rainy day.
Which law is in control of a spacecraft that cruises through space at a constant speed without using any fuel?
According to Newton’s first law the spacecraft will continue moving with constant speed unless an external opposite force is applied on it.
Passengers in a bus lean forward as bus suddenly stops. This is due to
This is due to the presence of inertia.
When the bus moves, the passenger's body comes in the state of motion but when the bus stops the lower part of the body which is in contact with floor comes in the state of rest whereas the upper part of body still remains in the state of motion and because of this the upper part of the body falls in the forward direction.
Who asserted that the natural state of body is the state of rest
Aristotle asserted that a body was in its natural state when it was at rest.
How is inertia used when riding a bicycle?
Even if we stop paddling due to inertia of motion we will continue to move forward upto a certain distance as friction will finally make us stop.
