Q.21 A mass of 60 kg is on the floor of a lift moving down. The
lift moves at first with an acceleration of 3 m/sec

, then
with constant velocity and finally with a retardation of
3m/sec

Q.22 A mass of 10 kg is hung to a spring balance in lift. If the
lift is moving with an acceleration g/3 in upward &
downward directions, choose the correct options related
to the reading of the spring balance.
(1) 13.3 kg (2) 6.67 kg (3) 32.6 kg (4) 0
Q.23Choose the correct options
(1) A reference frame in which Newton’s first law is valid
is called an inertial reference frame.
(2) Frame moving at constant velocity relative to a known
inertial frame is also an inertial frame.
(3) Idealy, no inertial frame exists in the universe for
practical purpose, a frame of reference may be
considered as inertial if its acceleration is negligible
with respect to the acceleration of the object to be
observed.
(4) To measure the acceleration of a falling apple, earth
cannot be considered as an inertial frame.
DIRECTIONS (Q.24-Q.26) : Read the passage given below
and answer the questions that follows :
Pseudo force is an imaginary force which is recognised only by a
non-inertial observer to explain the physical situation according
to newton’s laws. Magnitude of pseudo force F
p
is equal to the
product of the mass m of the object and the acceleration a of the
frame of reference. The direction of the force is opposite to the
direction of acceleration, F
p
= –ma

on it. The cloth can be pulled out without dislodging the
dishes from the table.
Statement-2 : To every action there is an equal and oppo-
site reaction.
Q.28 Statement-1 : If the net external force on the body is zero
then its acceleration is zero.
Statement-2 : Acceleration does not depend on force.
Q.29 Statement-1 : The slope of momentum versus time graph
give us the acceleration.
Statement-2 : Force is given by the rate of change of
momentum.
