Ques 1: When a man moves down the inclined plane with a constant speed 5 ms^{1} which makes an angle of 37° with the horizontal, he finds that the rain is falling vertically downward. When he moves up the same inclined plane with the same speed, he finds that the rain makes an angle with the horizontal. The speed of the rain is
(c) 5 ms^{1}
Ans:
Sol: Applying sine for mula in Δ AOB
Applying sine formula in
Δ AOB'
Comparing Eqs. (i) and (ii)
sin α  cos α tan 37°
or 4 sin α  3 cos α = 32 cos α  28 sin α + 24 sin α + 21 cos α
or 32 cos α + 21 cos α + 3 cos α = 28 sin α  24 sin α + 4 sin α
or 56 cos α = 8 sin α
tan α = 7/1
From Eq. (i)
∴
Option (b) is correct.
Ques 2: Equation of motion of a body is dv/dt = 4v + 8 where v is the velocity in ms^{1} and t is the time in second.

(b) the terminal speed is 2 ms^{1}
(c) Both (a) and (b) are correct
(d) Both (a) and (b) are wrong

A swimmer swims (with respect to water) perpendicular to the current with acceleration a = 2t (where t is time) starting from rest from the origin O at t = 0. The equation of trajectory of the path followed by the swimmer is
Ans:
Sol: Displacement along yaxis at time t
or ∫ dv_{y} = ∫ 2t dt
or v_{y} = t^{2} + C_{1}
At t = 0, v_{y} = 0 (given)
∴ C_{1} = 0
∴ v_{y} = t^{2}
⇒
or ∫ dy = ∫ t^{2} + C_{2}
or
At t = 0, Y = 0 (given)
∴ …(i)
Displacement along xaxis at time t:

(b) 2βv^{3}
(c) 2αβv^{3}
(d) 2β^{2}v^{3}
Ans: 2αv^{3}
Sol: t = ax^{2} + bx
Differentiating w.r.t. time t
or v (β + 2α × x ) = 1
or v = (β + 2α × x )^{}^{1}
∴
∴ Retardation = 2αv^{3}
Option (a) is correct.

∴
or
or
As at x = 0 car is at rest C = 0
∴
For v to be maximum.
i.e., a  bx = 0
or x = a/b
Substituting x = a/b in Eq. (i),

(a) y^{2} = 4x
(b) y = 2x
(c) x^{2} = y/2
(d) None of these
Sol:
or ∫ dx = ∫(4 + 4t) dt
and ∫ dy = ∫ 4t dt
or x = 4t + 2t^{2} + C_{1}
∴ C_{1} = 1
Thus x = 4t + 2t^{2} + 1 …(i)
and y = 2t^{2} + C_{2}
At t = 0 x = 1
and at t = 0, y = 2
∴ C_{2} = 0
Thus y = 2t^{2} + 2 …(ii)
Substituting value of t in Eq. (i) in terms of y using Eq. (ii) we won’t get relationship as mentioned in option (a), (b) or (c).
∴ Option (d) is correct.

Ques 16: Two particles are moving along two long straight lines, in the same plane with same speed equal to 20 cms^{1}. The angle between the two lines is 60° and their intersection point is O. At a certain moment, the two particles are located at distances 3m and 4m from O and are moving towards O. Subsequently, the shortest distance between them will be
(a) 50 cm
Ans:
Sol: From Δ OAB
∴ OA^{2} + OB^{2}  AB^{2} = OA × OB
i.e., AB^{2} = OA^{2} + OB^{2}  OA × OB
= (4  0.2t)^{2} + (3  0.2t)^{2} + (4  0.2t) (3  0.2t)
or AB^{2} = 16 + 0.04t^{2}  1.6t + 9 + 0.04t^{2}  1.2t + 12  1.4t + 0.04t^{2}
or AB^{2} = 0.12t^{2}  4.2t + 37
For AB to be minimum
0.24t  4.2 = 0
or t = 17.5 s
∴ (AB)^{2}_{min} = 0.12(17.5)^{2}  4.2 × (17.5) + 37
= 36.75  73.5 + 37
(AB)^{2}_{min} = 0.75 m^{2}
= 7500 cm^{2}
Option (d) is correct.

(a) 73.65 m
(b) 116.25 m
(c) 82.56 m
(d) 63.25 m
Ans: 82.56 m
Sol: Velocity of ball w.r.t. ground (v_{BE})
= (15 + 10) m/s
= 25 m/s
Now v^{2} = u^{2} + 2as
∴ 0^{2} = (25)^{2} + 2( 10) H

Maximum height by ball as measured from ground = 31.25 + 2 + 50
= 83.25 m
