QUESTION: 3

### A person brings a mass of 1 kg from infinity to a point A. Initially the mass was at rest but it moves at a speed of 2m/s as it reaches A. The work done by the person on the mass is –3J. The potential at A is

Solution:
QUESTION: 4
A body is suspended from a spring balance kept in a satellite. The reading of the balance is when the satellite goes in on orbit of radius R and is when it goes in an orbit of radius 2R.
Solution:
In either cases of different radii of R and 2R, the satellite behaves like a freely falling body. So, the acceleration in either cases = acceleration due to gravity (g). The reading of the spring balance is given by the expression W = m g Hence, the acceleration due to gravity remains the same for both and the reading of the spring balance remains same as well, in both the cases.

QUESTION: 5

A particle is kept at rest at a distance R(earth’s radius) above the earth’s surface. The minimum speed with which it should be projected so that it does not return is

Solution:

Using conservation of energy, QUESTION: 6
A uniform spherical shell gradually shrinks maintaining its shape. The gravitational poential at the centre.
Solution: AS it is maintaining its shape so its mass will remain constant which implies that if it shrinks then its volume decreases and to keep the mass constant ,its density increases.Also the gravitational potential at the centre of a uniform spherical shell is inversely proportional to the radius of the shell with a negative sign. When a uniform spherical shell gradually shrinks, the gravitational potential at the centre decreases (because of the negative sign in the formula of potential).
QUESTION: 7
A particle executes simple harmonic motion with a frequency v. The frequency with which the kinetic
energy oscillates is
Solution: As SHM is represented by
x=Asin (wt)
v=Awcos(wt)
so kE is=1/2mv^2
so kE is proportional to [cos(wt)]^2
If the time period of particle is T
Time period of x=T
Time period of kE=T/2 because:
[(cos)/(sin) function have time period 2π if their power is odd else their time period is π if power is even]
in KE the time period will be reduced to T/2 because the cos is in square while in x the sin has power one i.e the time period will be T
so v=1/T
v of KE=2/T=2v
QUESTION: 8

A particle executes simple harmonic motion under the restoring force provided by a spring. The time period is T. If the spring is divided in two equal parts and one part is used to continue the simple harmonic motion , the time period will

Solution:

Time period T =2pi under root l/gIf the length is halved then Time period t=2πunder root l/2gSo t=T/under root 2

QUESTION: 9
The free end of a simple pendulum is attached to the ceiling of a box. The box is taken to a height and the point, the box is released to fall freely. As seen from the box during this period, the bob will
Solution: At the bottom of the pendulum, the velocity is tangential and the string with no gravity the string will restrain it forcing it to travel in a circular path.

Solution:
QUESTION: 14

Consider two waves passing through the same string.Principle of superposition for displacement says that the net displacement of a particle on the string is sum of the displacements proudced by the two waves individually. Suppose we state similar principles for the net velocity of the particle and the kinetic energy of the particle. Such a principle will be valid for

Solution:
QUESTION: 15

QUESTION: 21

A small source of sound moves on a circle as shown in the figure and an observer is standing on O. Let n1,n2 and n3 be the frequencies heard when the source is at A, B and C respectively. Then Solution:

At point A, source is moving away from observer so apparent frequency n1<n (actual frequency) At point B source is coming towards observer so apparent frequency n2<n and point C source is moving perpendicular to observer so n3 =n Hence n2>n3>n1
