(a) Work is done when a force applied on a body produces motion in it.
Formula for work done:
W = F x s
where W is the work done
F is force applied
S is the displacement of the body in the direction of force

Solution 53
(a) Work is said to be done when the force applied on a body produces motion in it.
Work done by a body in moving up is given by

Solution 57
(a) The energy of a body due to its position or change in its shape is known as its potential energy. E.g. a stretched rubber has potential energy due to change in its shape and water in the overhead tank has potential energy due to its height above the ground.
PE = m x g x h
where, PE is the potential energy of the body,
m is the mass of the body,
g is the acceleration due to gravity,
h is the height above the surface ofearth.
(b) Kinetic energy of a body is due to motion of the body while potential energy is due to position or change in shape of the body.
Kinetic energy is zero for a still body, while potential energy may or may not be zero for a still body.
Kinetic energy of a body is directly proportional to its speed while potential energy is directly proportional to the height to which the body is above the ground.

Speed v_{1} = 5 m/s
Speed v_{2} = 3 m/s
Solution 58
(a) The potential energy due to the position of the body above the ground is gravitational potential energy and the potential energy due to change in shape and size of the body is elastic potential energy. E.g. a stretched rubber has elastic potential energy due to change in its shape while water in the overhead tank has gravitational potential energy due to its height above the ground.
(b) Work done, W = 784 J
Mass, m = 20 kg
g = 9.8 m/s^{2}
W = m x g x h
784 = 20 x 9.8 x h

Solution 71
Work done is more on the bicycle because the truck does not move at all and the bicycle moves through a certain distance. And work is said to be done only when applied force produces motion in the body.
Page 149
Solution 72
The work done will decrease as the angle between the direction of force and direction of motion is increased gradually because
W= F cos θ x s
and cos θ decreases as the angle θ is increased.
Solution 73
The work done will be zero when angle between the direction of force and direction of motion is 90^{o}because
Solution 75
The work done is zero because the gravitational force acts along the radius of the circular path, at right angles i.e. 90^{o} to the motion of satellite.
Solution 76
Weight of man = Mg = 800 N
Weight of package = mg = 200 N
Total weight of man and package = Mg + mg = (M+m)g = 1000 N
Height of the summit, h = 1200 m
i) Work done = (M+m) x g x h = 1000 x 1200 = 12 x 10^{5} J
ii) Potential energy of the package = m x g x h = 200 x 1200 = 2.4 x 10^{5} J
Solution 77
Potential energy becomes maximum.
Solution 78
The work done by both X and Y are equal because irrespective of whether they reach the top of building by using a spiral or slanted ladder, the vertical distance moved by them against the gravity is same.
Solution 79
Yes, the kinetic energy of the ball thrown inside a moving bus depends on the
speed of the bus because the speed of the bus adds up to the speed with which
the ball is thrown inside the moving bus.

Here, initial velocity u = 400m/s
Final velocity = 0
Kinetic energy of the bullet is mainly converted into hear energy (by friction).
