Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 1

### The basic difference between a scalar and vector is one of

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 1

Scalar quantity gives you an idea about how much of an object there is, but vector quantity gives you an indication of how much of an object there is and that also in which direction. So, the main difference between these two quantities is associated with the direction, i.e. scalars do not have direction but vectors do.

Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 2

### Which is a constant for a freely falling object?

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 2

Explanation:An object that falls through a vacuum is subjected to only one external force, the gravitational force, expressed as the weight of the object. An object that is moving only because of the action of gravity is said to be free falling and its motion is described by Newton's second law of motion. With algebra we can solve for the acceleration of a free falling object. The acceleration is constant and equal to the gravitational acceleration g which is 9.8 meters per square second at sea level on the Earth. The weight, size, and shape of the object are not a factor in describing a free fall.

Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 14

A sports car has a “lateral acceleration” of 0.96g = 9.4 m s−2. This is the maximum centripetal acceleration the car can sustain without skidding out of a curved path. If the car is traveling at a constant 40 m/s on level ground, what is the radius R of the tightest unbanked curve it can negotiate?

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 14

Explanation:

The car is in uniform circular motion because it’s moving at a constant speed along a curve that is a segment of a circle. Hence we know

This is the minimum turning radius because arad is the maximum centripetal acceleration.

Which of the following physical quantities a scalar?

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 16

Work is the energy transferred to an object by force. It is a scalar quantity because it's the product of force and displacement. Work is not the same thing as force, which is a vector quantity, because work is the result of force.

Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 17

In a harbor, wind is blowing at the speed of 72 km/h and the flag on the mast of a boat anchored in the harbor flutters along the N-E direction. If the boat starts moving at a speed of 51 km/h to the north, what is the direction of the flag on the mast of the boat?

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 17

Explanation:The flag is fluttering in the north-east direction. It shows that the wind is blowing toward the north-east direction. When the ship begins sailing toward the north, the flag will move along the direction of the relative velocity (vwb) of the wind with respect to the boat.

Hence, the flag will flutter approximately due east.

Explanation:Acceleration is a vector quantity because it has both magnitude and direction.When an object has a positive acceleration, the acceleration occurs in the same direction as the movement of the object.When an object has a negative acceleration (it's slowing down), the acceleration occurs in the opposite direction as the movement of the object.

Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 28

We can define the difference of two vectors A and B as the

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 28

Explanation:

Vector subtraction is defined in the following way.

• The difference of two vectors, A - B , is a vector C that is, C = A - B
• The addition of two vector such that C = A + (-B). B has been taken in opposite direction.

Thus vector subtraction can be represented as a vector addition.

Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 29

Three girls skating on a circular ice ground of radius 200 m start from a point P on the edge of the ground and reach a point Q diametrically opposite to P following different paths as shown in Figure. What is the magnitude of the displacement vector for each ? For which girl is this equal to the actual length of path skate ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion in a Plane - 1 - Question 29

Explanation:

(i) PQ = diameter = displacement for each girl = 2r = 2 x 200 = 400 m

Since, displacement vector does not depend upon the actual path length and it is the shortest distance between initial and final position, so in the case of each girl the displacement is 400 m.

(ii)This is equal to the actual length of the path skated by girl B.
