Rockets work on the principle of conservation of:
The law of conservation of momentum holds for:
A gun of mass 5kg fires 50gm bullet with a velocity of 200m/s. Find the recoils velocity of the gun.
M of bullet = 50g= 50/1000 = 0.05kg
u= 200m/s , v=0m/s
m of gun = 5kg
u= 0m/s , v= ?
p of bullet before firing = 0.05x200 = 10kgm/s
p of gun before firing = 5*0 = 0kgm/s
Total p before firing = 10 + 0 = 10kgm/s
p of bullet after firing = 0.05x0 = 0kgm/s
let recoil velocity of gun = v m/s
p of gun after firing = 5v kgm/s
total p after firing = 5v + 0 = 5v kgm/s
According to law of conservation of momentum(p)
total p before firing = total p after firing
10 = 5v
10/5 = v
2 = v
∴ recoi v of gun = - 2 m/s
negative sign indicates the opp. direction of motion
Which of the following implies the greatest precision?
The law of conservation of momentum states that the sum of momenta of two objects before collision is equal to the sum of momenta after the collision provided that ______
The law of conservation of momentum states that for two objects colliding in an isolated system, the total momentum before and after the collision is equal. This is because the momentum lost by one object is equal to the momentum gained by the other.
The momentum of a body of given mass is proportional to:
A ball of mass 5 kg moving at 3 m/s collides with another ball of mass 3 kg moving at 5 m/s in the same direction. If the balls move together after the collision in the same direction, find their common velocity.
Two objects each of mass 1.5 Kg are moving in the same straight line but in opposite directions. The velocity of each object is 2.5m/s before the collision during which they stick together. What will be the velocity of the combined object after the collision?
A machine gun of mass 24 kg fires 20g bullets at the rate of 8 bullets per second, with a speed of 250 m/s. The force required to hold the gun in position is:
The momentum of an isolated system remains conserved provided:
