Q.1. A ball is released from a height h. If t1 and t2 be the time required to complete first half and second half of the distance respectively. Then, choose the correct relation between t1 and t2.     [(JEE Main 2022)]
(a) t1 = (√2)t2
(b) t1 = (√2 − 1)t2

Q.2. A juggler throws balls vertically upwards with same initial velocity in air. When the first ball reaches its highest position, he throws the next ball. Assuming the juggler throws n balls per second, the maximum height the balls can reach is     [(JEE Main 2022)]
(a) g/2n
(b) g/n
(c) 2gn
(d) g/2n
2

Ans. (d)
The juggler throws n balls per second.
∴ Interval between balls = 1 / n seconds
At maximum height velocity of first ball v = 0
Juggler throws all balls with same initial velocity = u
For 1st ball,
u =u, v1 = 0, a = −g, S = Hmax
Using formula,
v2 = u2 + 2as
0 = u2 − 2gHmax
⇒ Hmax = u2 / 2g ...... (1)
And using formula,
v = u + at
⇒ 0 = u −gt
⇒ t = u / g
∴ Time taken by ball 1 to reach maximum height (Hmax) =  / g
According to the question,
t = 1n
⇒ u / g = 1/ n
⇒ u = g / n ....... (2)
Putting value of u in equation (1), we get

The value of n is ___________ .     [(JEE Advance 2022)]

Ans. (0.93and 0.97)

So, after entering in the new region, time taken by projectile to reach ground

So, horizontal displacement done by the projectile in new region is

So, d′ = d / 2 + x
= 0.95d
So, n = 0.95d

Q.22. The ranges and heights for two projectiles projected with the same initial velocity at angles 42 and 48 with the horizontal are R1, R2 and H1, H2 respectively. Choose the correct option :     [(JEE Main 2021)]

(b) R1 = R2 and H1 < H2
(c) R1 < R2 and H1 < H2
(d) R1 = R2 and H1 = H2

Ans. (b)
Here, two projectiles are projected at angles 42∘ and 48∘ with same initial velocity.
As we know the expression of range of projectile,
Range = u2sin⁡2θ / g
AT θ1 = 42,
Range,
At θ2 = 48
Range,
The range of the projectile is same for the two projectiles.
Therefore, R1 = R2
Now, as we know the expression of height of the projectile,

Higher the value of θ higher the value of maximum height. Therefore, H1 < H2.

Q.53. A passenger train of length 60 m travels at a speed of 80 km/hr. Another freight train of length 120 m travels at a speed of the. The ratio of times taken by the passenger train to completely cross the freight train when (i) they are moving in same direction and (ii) in the opposite directions is  [JEE Main 2019]
(1) 11/5
(2) 5/2
(3) 3/2
(4) 25/11

Ans: (1)
Let passenger train and freight train be A and B and vA is the velocity of passenger train and vB is the velocity of freight train B.
Relative velocity of A with respect to B is (same direction)

Time taken by the train A to cross the train B

Train moving in opposite direction

Therefore, required ratio is

Q 54. A particle starts from the origin at time t = 0 and moves along the positive x-axis. The graph of velocity with respect to time is shown in figure. What is the position of the particle at time t = 5 s?    (JEE Main 2019)

(1) 10 m
(2) 6 m
(3) 3 m
(4) 9 m

Ans: (4)
As we know that, area under v-t curve gives displacement.
therefore,

Q 55. A particle is moving with a velocity  where K is a constant. The general equation for its path is    (JEE Main 2019)
(1) y = x2 + constant
(2) y2 = x + constant
(3) y2 = x2 + constant
(4) xy = constant

Ans: (3)
Equation for velocity of the particle is

Thus,

Now,

Integrating both the sides, we get
y2 = x2 + constant

Q 56.  The position coordinates of a particle moving in a 3D coordinate system is given by
x = a cos ωt
y = a sin ωt
and
z = aωt
The speed of the particle is    (JEE Main 2019)
(1)
(2) aω
(3)
(4) 2aω

Ans: (1)
Velocity coordinates of particle is obtained by differentiating the position coordinate with respect to time, Thus:

Hence, velocity of particle is

Q 58. Two guns A and B can fire bullets at speeds 1 km/s and 2 km/s respectively. From a point on a horizontal ground, they are fired in all possible directions. The ratio of maximum areas covered by the bullets fired by the two guns, on the ground is     (JEE Main 2019)
(1) 1 : 16
(2) 1 : 2
(3) 1 : 4
(4) 1 : 8

Ans: (1)
Area covered = πR2
A ∝ R
Thus, range

Therefore, required ratio is

Q.59. Two vectors   have equal magnitudes. The magnitude of

is n times the magnitude of  The angle between  is    (JEE Main 2019)
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)

Ans: (1)
We know that

According to the question

Squaring both the sides, we get

Q .60. A body is projected at t = 0 with a velocity 10 m/s at an angle of 60° with the horizontal. The radius of curvature of its trajectory at t = 1 s is R. Neglecting air resistance and taking acceleration due to gravity g = 10 m/s2, the value of R is     (JEE Main 2019)
(1) 2.5 m
(2) 2.8 m
(3) 10.3 m
(4) 5.1 m

Ans: (2)
At t = 1:

The radius of curvature of the trajectory is

= 2.77 m = 2.8 m

Q.61. A particle moves from the point  at t = 0 with an initial velocity  It is acted upon by a constant force which produces a consult acceleration  What is the distance of the particle from the origin at time 2s?    (JEE Main 2019)
(1) 15m
(2) 20√2m
(3) 5m
(4) 10√2m

Ans: (2)

Q.62. All the graphs below are intended to represent the same motion. One of them does it incorrectly. Pick it up.    (JEE Main 2018)

(1)

(2)

(3)

(4)

Ans: B
n graph ‘2’ initial slope is zero which is not possible, since initial velocity is non-zero in all other three graphs.

Q.63. An automobile, travelling at 40 km/h, can be stopped at a distance of 40m by applying brakes. If the same automobile is travelling at 80 km/h, the minimum stopping distance, in metres, is (assume no skidding):    (JEE Main 2018)
(1) 75 m
(2) 160 m
(3) 150 m
(4) 100 m

Ans: (2)

Q.64. The velocity-time graphs of a car and a scooter are shown in the figure. (i) The difference between the distance travelled by the car and the scooter in 15 s and (ii) the time at which the car will catch up with the scooter are, respectively.     (JEE Main 2018)

(1) 337.5 m and 25 s
(2) 225.5 m and 10 s
(3) 112.5 m and 15 s
(4)  112.5 m and 22.5 s

Ans: D
The distance traveled in 15 seconds by both will be given by area under curve.

Suppose after time t, they will meet, then distance traveled by both of them will be equal.

Q.65. Let  The magnitude of a coplanar vector  is given by:     (JEE Main 2018)
