Which of the following statements is false for a particle moving in a circle with a constant angular speed?
For a particle moving in a circle with constant angular speed, the velocity vector is always tangent to the circle and the acceleration vector always points towards the centre of the circle or is always along the radius of the circle. Since, the tangential vector is perpendicular to radial vector, therefore, velocity vector will be perpendicular to the acceleration vector. But in no case acceleration vector is tangent to the circle.
Which motion does not require force to maintain it?
Uniform straight line motion is a type of linear motion. It works according to Newton's First law of motion i.e. objects that do not experience any net force will continue to move in a straight line with a constant velocity until they are subjected to a net force.

Two trains are each 50 m long moving parallel to each other at speeds 10 m/s and 15 m/s respectively, at what time will they pass each other?
As both the trains are moving in the opposite direction, the relative speed of each train with respect to each other be, v=10+15=25m/s
Here distance covered by each train = sum of their lengths =50+50=100m
∴ Required time=100/25=4sec
Two cars are moving in same direction with speed of 30 kmph. They are separated by a distance of 5 km. What is the speed of a car moving in opposite direction if it meets the two cars at an interval of 4 min?
Lets say the speed of second car be v. Now with respect to car 1, speed of car 2 is v - 30. Now if the cross each other at just after 4 min then the distance traveled by car 2 relative to car 1 is (v -30) x 4/60 and we know the distance travelled relatively is 5km
Thus we get
(v -30) x 4/60 = 5
V = 300/4 - 30
= 45 km/h

A man can row a boat in still water with a velocity of 8 kmph. Water is flowing in a river with a velocity of 4 kmph. At what angle should he row the boat so as to reach the exact opposite point?
A man can swim in still water at a speed of 6 kmph and he has to cross the river and reach just opposite point on the other bank. If the river is flowing at a speed of 3 kmph, and the width of the river is 2 km, the time taken to cross the river is (in hours)
To reach the exact opposite end the parallel component of velocity would nullify the velocity of the river, hence we get 6.sin a = 3 , where a is the angle with perpendicular to river flow.
Thus we get sin a = ½ and cos a =√3/2
Thus the perpendicular component of velocity, 6.cos a = 3√3
Thus time taken is 2 / 3√3
