Q.1. A motorboat going downstream overcame a raft at a point A; τ = 60 min later it turned back and after some time passed the raft at a distance l = 6.0 km from the point A. Find the flow velocity assuming the duty of the engine to be constant. 
Ans. Let, Vbbe the velocity of motorboat
and, vw be the velocity of flow of water.
Let x be the distance travelled down stream by the boat.
Then, x = (vb + vw)τ ................................ (i)
After turning back, suppose the boat takes time t to meet the raft again.
Then, x - I = (vb - vw) t .......................... (ii)
Again, I = vw x (τ + t) ......................... (iii)
Here, vw is the velocity of the raft and (τ + t) is the total time taken by the raft to cover distance I.
From (i), (ii) and (iii) we get:
(vb + Vw)τ - vw (τ + t) = (v6 - vw)t
Solving, τ = f

Q.2. A point traversed half the distance with a velocity v0. The remaining part of the distance was covered with velocity v1 for half the time, and with velocity v2  for the other half of the time. Find the mean velocity of the point averaged over the whole time of motion. 
Ans. Let s be the total distance traversed by the point and t1 the time taken to cover half the distance. Further let 2t be the time to cover the rest half of the distance.

Therefore,

Q.3. A car starts moving rectilinearly, first with acceleration ω = 5.0 m/s2  (the initial velocity is equal to zero), then uniformly, and finally, decelerating at the same rate ω, comes to a stop. The total time of motion equals τ = 25 s. The average velocity during that time is equal to (v) = 72 km per hour. How long does the car move uniformly? 
Ans. 
As the car starts from rest and finally comes to a stop, and the rate of acceleration and deceleration are equal, the distances as well as the times taken are same in these phases of motion. 
Let Δt be the time for which the car moves uniformly. 
Then the acceleration/deceleration time is Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduReveach. 
So total distance is calculated as 
Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev
vmax  is calculated using Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev
Thus we get

Q.4. A point moves rectilinearly in one direction. Fig. 1.1 shows the distance s traversed by the point as a function of the time t. Using the plot find:
(a) the average velocity of the point during the time of motion;
(b) the maximum velocity;

Q. 5. Two particles, 1 and 2, move with constant velocities v1 and v2. At the initial moment their radius vectors are equal to r1 and r2. How must these four vectors be interrelated for the particles to collide?

Q.7. Two swimmers leave point A on one bank of the river to reach point B lying right across on the other bank. One of them crosses the river along the straight line AB while the other swims at right angles to the stream and then walks the distance that he has been carried away by the stream to get to point B. What was the velocity u of his walking if both swimmers reached the destination simultaneously? The stream velocity v0 = 2.0 km/hour and the velocity if of each swimmer with respect to water equals 2.5 km per hour.

Having moved off an equal distance from the buoy the boats returned. Find the ratio of times of motion of boats τAB  if the velocity of each boat with respect to water is η1 = 1.2 times greater than the stream velocity.

Q.9. A boat moves relative to water with a velocity which is n = 2.0 times less than the river flow velocity. At what angle to the stream direction must the boat move to minimize drifting? 
Ans. Let v0 be the stream velocity and v' the velocity of boat with respect to water.
At  Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev some drifting of boat is inevitable.

Q.12. Three points are located at the vertices of an equilateral triangle whose side equals a. They all start moving simultaneously with velocity v constant in modulus, with the first point heading continually for the second, the second for the third, and the third for the first. How soon will the points converge? 
Ans.  From the symmetry of the problem all the three points are always located at the vertices of equilateral triangles of varying side length and finally meet at the centriod of the initial equilateral triangle whose side length is a, in the sought time interval (say t ).

Q.13. Point A moves uniformly with velocity v so that the vector v is continually "aimed" at point B which in its turn moves rectilinearly and uniformly with velocity u< v. At the initial moment of time v ⊥ u  and the points are separated by a distance 1. How soon will the points converge?
Ans. Let us locate the points A and B at an arbitrary instant of time (Fig.).
If A and B are separated by the distance s at this moment, then the points converge or point A approaches B with velocity -ds/dt = v - ucosα where angle α  varies with time.

On intergating,

(where T is the sought time.)

Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev(1)

Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev

As both A and B cover the same distance in jc-direction during the sought time interval, so the other condition which is required, can be obtained by the equation

So, Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev   (2)

Solving (1) and (2), w e get Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev

One can see that if w = v, or u < v, point A cannot catch B.


Q.14. A train of length l = 350 m starts moving rectilinearly with constant acceleration w = 3.0.10-2  m/s2; t = 30 s after the start the locomotive headlight is switched on (event 1) , and τ = 60 s after that event the tail signal light is switched on (event 2) . Find the distance between these events in the reference frames fixed to the train and to the Earth. How and at what constant velocity V relative to the Earth must a certain reference frame K move for the two events to occur in it at the same point?
Ans. In the reference frame fixed to the train, the distance between the two events is obviously equal to l. Suppose the train starts moving at time t = 0 in the positive x direction and take the origin (x = 0) at the head-light o f the train at t = 0. Then the coordinate o f first event in the earth’s frame is

Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev

and similarly the coordinate of the second event is

Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev

The distance between the two events is obviously.

Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev

in the reference frame fixed on the earth..

For the two events to occur at the same point in the reference frame K, moving with constant velocity V relative to the earth, the distance travelled by the frame in the time interval T must be equal to the above distance.

Thus  Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev

So,  Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev

The frame K must clearly be moving in a direction opposite to the train so that if (for example) the origin of the frame coincides with the point x1 on the earth at time t, it coincides with the point x2 at time t + τ.


Q. 15. An elevator car whose floor-to-ceiling distance is equal to 2.7 m starts ascending with constant acceleration 1.2 m/s2; 2.0 s after the start a bolt begins falling from the ceiling of the car. Find: 

(a) the bolt's free fall time;
(b) the displacement and the distance covered by the bolt during the free fall in the reference frame fixed to the elevator shaft. 

Ans. Given that the distance between the elevator floor and ceiling, S = 2.7 m
Acceleration of the elevator, a = 1.2 m/s2.
Relative to the elevator the acceleration of the bolt = (g +a) = ( 9 8+1.2) =11 m/s2 
Let 't' be the time taken by the bolt to reach the floor of the elevator of height 2.7 m Relative to the elevator the velocity of the bolt = 0
So from the equation of motion
Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev
Here S = 2.7 m, a = 11 m/s2,u = 0
Substituting we get that:
Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev
∴ The free fall time of the bolt = 0.7 sec
(b)
Displacement:
When the bolt looses its contact from the ceiling of the elevator, it will aquire the velocity of the elevator The upward velocity of the elevator = at = 1.2 x2 = 2 4 m/s
Let us consider the position of elevator shaft as ground.
Therefore in the refrence frame attached to the elevator shaft in the upward direction: The position of the bolt after 0.7s will be:
Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev
So the displacement of the bolt = 0.7 m
Distance:
Distance travelled by the bolt will be different from its displacement as the bolt first travels upwards before it gets detached from the ceiling
The distance travelled upwards can be obtained from v2 = u2 -2gS
From this we get:
Kinematics (Part - 1) - Mechanics, Irodov JEE Notes | EduRev
The bolt thus has to travel a distance of 2S + 0.7m in total
i.e. 2x0.29 +0.7 =1.3 m
