A boy playing on the roof of a 10 m high building throws a ball with a speed of 10 m/s at an angle of 30° with the horizontal. How far from the throwing point will the ball be at the height of 10 m from the ground? [g = 10 m/s2, sin 30° = 1/2, cos 30° = √3/2]

[AIEEE 2003]

Detailed Solution for Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 6

We have to simply calculate the range of the projectile.
► R = u2sin2θ/g
► R = (10)2 * sin (2 * 30º) / 10
► R = 10 * (√3/2) = 8.66 m

Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 7

A car moving with a speed of 50 km/h, can be stopped by brakes after at least 6 m. If the same car is moving at a speed of 100 km/h, the minimum stopping distance is:

[AIEEE 2003]

Detailed Solution for Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 7

We know that retardation of a car with an initial speed of 50kmph stops after 6 m.
We know that v2 - u2 = 2as  (third equation of motion)
► 0 - 502 = 2 * a * 6
► a = - 502 / 12
Hence when the initial speed is 100 kmph
We get,
► -1002 = 2 * a * s
► 2 * s = 12 * (1002 / 502)
Thus we get s = 24 m.

Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 8

A ball is thrown from a point with a speed v0 at an angle of projection θ. From the same point and at the same instant, a person starts running with a constant speed v0 / 2 to catch the ball. Will the person be able to catch the ball? If yes, what should be the angle of projection?

A particle is acted upon by a force of constant magnitude which is always perpendicular to the velocity of the particle. The motion of the particle takes place in a plane, it follows that:

[AIEEE 2004]

Detailed Solution for Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 9

When a force of constant magnitude acts on the velocity of a particle perpendicularly, then there is no change in the kinetic energy of the particle. Hence, kinetic energy remains constant.

Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 10

An automobile travelling at a speed of 60 km/h, can apply the brake to stop within a distance of 20 m. If the car is going twice as fast, i.e. 120 km/h, the stopping distance will be:

[AIEEE 2004]

Detailed Solution for Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 10
• We know that with retardation of a car with an initial speed of 60 kmph stops after 20m.
• We know that v2 = 2as  (third equation of motion). Thus we get that for some constant retardation, stopping distance is proportional to the square of the initial speed.
• Hence when the initial speed is 120kmph we get,
s = 20 x (120/60)2
s = 80 m

A body is at rest at x = 0. At t = 0, it starts moving in the positive x-direction with a constant acceleration. At the same instant, another body passes through x = 0 moving in the positive x-direction with a constant speed.

Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 21

Consider a rubber ball freely falling from a height h = 4.9 m onto a horizontal elastic plate. Assume that the duration of the collision is negligible and the collision with the plate is totally elastic. Then the velocity as a function of time the height as a function of time will be:
[AIEEE 2009]

Detailed Solution for Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 21
• We know, v = u + gt
As the ball is dropped, v = gt.
When coming down, v increases then makes collision, the value of v becomes +ve, then value of v decreases, becomes zero and then increases.
• The change from +v to –v is almost instantaneous. Using -ve signs when coming down, so option c is correct.
Further h = (1/2) gt2  is a parabola. Therefore (c) is correct.
Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 22

A particle has initial velocity (2i + 3j) and acceleration (0.3i + 0.2j). The magnitude of velocity after 10 s will be:

Detailed Solution for Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 22

From the equation of motion, we knows,
v = u + at  ...(1)
► u = (2i + 3j)
► a = (0.3i + 0.2j)
► t = 10 s
On putting these values in first equation we get:
v = (2i + 3j) + (0.3i + 0.2j) * 10
v = 5i + 5j
|v| = 5√2

A particle is moving with velocity where k is a constant. The general equation for its path is:

[AIEEE 2010]

Detailed Solution for Previous Year Questions: Motion in a Straight Line - Question 24

As, v = k(yi + xi)
vx = Ky → dx/dt = Ky

► ydy = xdx
Integrating the equation,
► y2/ 2 = x2/2 + c
► y= x+ constant
