Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 1

### Two balls are thrown simultaneously in air. The acceleration of the centre of mass of the two balls, while in air

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 1

The only force acting on the balls is force of gravity, so the acceleration of centre of mass is equal to g.

Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 2

### A shell following a parabolic path explodes somewhere in its flight. The centre of mass of fragments will continue to move in

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 2

The internal forces have no effect on the trajectory of centre of mass, and the forces due to explosion are the internal forces. So the centre of mass will follow the same parabolic path even after explosion.

Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 3

### Two particles A and B of mass ‘m’ move towards each other under a mutual force of attraction. If velocity of A is 2 v and that of B is v, calculate the velocity of centre of mass of the system.

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 3

The velocity of the centre of mass will be zero. The initial velocity of the particles were zero because both A and B were at rest so momentum will be zero. and it is given that there is no external force hence no change in momentum of the centre of mass and it will remain zero.
By the law of conservation of momentum, the momentum is zero, and mass is not zero, velocity must be zero

Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 4

Two bodies of masses m1 and m2 are moving such that their momentums are equal and opposite. The velocity of centre of mass of system of two bodies is:

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 4

As momentum is p = mv and a vector quantity, if both are moving in opposite direction then the net momentum will be mv –mv. The minus sign shows that it is in opposite direction.
So p(net) is 0.

Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 5

Two spheres of masses m1 and m2 (m1>m2) respectively are tied to the ends of a light, inextensible string which passes over a light frictionless pulley. When the masses are released from their initial state of rest, the acceleration of their centre of mass is:

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 5

If, r1 and r2 are position vectors of the centres of the positional vector of their centre of mass is given by R=(m1r1+m2r2)/ (m1 + m2)
R= (m1r2+m2r2)/m1+m2)
The acceleration of the centre of mass is given by:
A=d2R/dt
= [m1 d2r/dt+m2 d2r/dt2 ]/(m1+m2)
But, d2r1/dt2 and d2r2/dt2 are the accelerations of masses m1 and m2
Have the same magnitude (m1-m2)/(m1+m2) g
If we take acceleration of [m1(m1-m2)/ (m1+m2)g – m2(m1-m2)/ (m1+m2)/]/ (m1+m2)
On simplifying that we get,
a=[(m1-m2)/ (m1+m2)]2 g

Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 6

When a fire cracker initially at rest, explodes into a number of fragments, the centre of mass

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 6

When a fire cracker initially at rest, explodes into a number of fragments, the centre of mass remains stationary. This is analogous to the explosion of a ball while it is flying in a trajectory.

Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 7

A radioactive nucleus of mass M moving along the positive x-direction with speed v emits an alpha particle of mass m. If the alpha particle proceeds along the positive y-direction, the centre of mass of the system (made of the daughter nucleus and the alpha particle) will:

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 7

The momentum of the initial particle remains conserved. Hence the emitted particles’ COM will remain along +ve x-axis.

Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 8

Which of the following options are correct,
where i, j and k are unit vectors along the x, y and z axis?

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 8

Dot product of two different unit vectors is 0 and dot product of two same unit vectors is 1. Cross product of two different unit vectors taken according to right hand thumb rule is the other vector. Cross product of two same unit vectors is 0.

Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 9

There are two particles of masses m and 2m placed at a distance‘d’ apart on a smooth horizontal surface. Where will the collision occur (with respect to original positions), if they are allowed to move towards each other because of their mutual attraction?

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 9

Their collision will occur at their center of mass.
If we consider body of mass 'm' at origin & '2m' at distance "d" from 1st body on X-axis then, center of mass,
X = m1(x1)+m2(x2)/m1+m2
X = m(0)+2m(d)/m+2m
X = 2md/3m
X = 2d/3
Hence A is the correct answer.

Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 10

A proton and an electron, initially at rest, are allowed to move under their mutal attractive force. Their centre of mass will:

Detailed Solution for Test: Motion of Centre of Mass - Question 10

We require an external force to move the centre of mass of a system of particles. The mutual force of electrical attraction is an internal force which can not affect the position of the centre of mass of the system.
