MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

A $$2$$ $$kg$$ block slides on a horizontal floor with a speed of $$4m/s.$$ It strikes a uncompressed spring, and compress it till the block is motionless. The kinetic friction force is $$15N$$ and spring constant is $$10, 000$$ $$N/m.$$ The spring compresses by

A

$$8.5cm$$

B

$$5.5cm$$

C

$$2.5cm$$

D

$$11.0cm$$

Let the block compress the spring by $$x$$ before coming to rest.

Initial kinetic energy of the block $$=$$ (potential energy of compressed spring) $$+$$ work done due to friction.

$${1 \over 2} \times 2 \times {\left( 4 \right)^2} = {1 \over 2} \times 10000 \times {x^2} + 15 \times x$$

$$10,000{x^2} + 30x - 32 = 0$$

$$ \Rightarrow 5000{x^2} + 15x - 16 = 0$$

$$\therefore$$ $$x = {{ - 15 \pm \sqrt {{{\left( {15} \right)}^2} - 4 \times \left( {5000} \right)\left( { - 16} \right)} } \over {2 \times 5000}}$$

$$\,\,\,\,\, = 0.055m = 5.5cm.$$

Initial kinetic energy of the block $$=$$ (potential energy of compressed spring) $$+$$ work done due to friction.

$${1 \over 2} \times 2 \times {\left( 4 \right)^2} = {1 \over 2} \times 10000 \times {x^2} + 15 \times x$$

$$10,000{x^2} + 30x - 32 = 0$$

$$ \Rightarrow 5000{x^2} + 15x - 16 = 0$$

$$\therefore$$ $$x = {{ - 15 \pm \sqrt {{{\left( {15} \right)}^2} - 4 \times \left( {5000} \right)\left( { - 16} \right)} } \over {2 \times 5000}}$$

$$\,\,\,\,\, = 0.055m = 5.5cm.$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

The potential energy of a $$1$$ $$kg$$ particle free to move along the $$x$$-axis is given by $$V\left( x \right) = \left( {{{{x^4}} \over 4} - {{{x^2}} \over 2}} \right)J$$.

The total mechanical energy of the particle is $$2J.$$ Then, the maximum speed (in $$m/s$$) is

A

$${3 \over {\sqrt 2 }}$$

B

$${\sqrt 2 }$$

C

$${1 \over {\sqrt 2 }}$$

D

$$2$$

Velocity is maximum when kinetic energy is maximum and when kinetic energy is maximum then potential energy should be minimum

For minimum potential energy,

$${{dV} \over {dx}} = 0 $$

$$\Rightarrow {x^3} - x = 0 $$

$$\Rightarrow x = \pm 1$$

$$ \Rightarrow$$ Min. Potential energy (P.E.) =$$ {1 \over 4} - {1 \over 2} = - {1 \over 4}J$$

$$K.E{._{\left( {\max .} \right)}} + P.E{._{\left( {\min .} \right)}} = 2\,$$ (Given)

$$\therefore$$ $$K.E{._{\left( {\max .} \right)}} = 2 + {1 \over 4} = {9 \over 4}$$

$$\therefore$$ $${1 \over 2}mv_{\max }^2$$ = $${9 \over 4}$$

$$ \Rightarrow {1 \over 2} \times 1 \times {v^2}_{\max .} = {9 \over 4}$$

$$ \Rightarrow {v_{\max }} = {3 \over {\sqrt 2 }}$$ m/s

For minimum potential energy,

$${{dV} \over {dx}} = 0 $$

$$\Rightarrow {x^3} - x = 0 $$

$$\Rightarrow x = \pm 1$$

$$ \Rightarrow$$ Min. Potential energy (P.E.) =$$ {1 \over 4} - {1 \over 2} = - {1 \over 4}J$$

$$K.E{._{\left( {\max .} \right)}} + P.E{._{\left( {\min .} \right)}} = 2\,$$ (Given)

$$\therefore$$ $$K.E{._{\left( {\max .} \right)}} = 2 + {1 \over 4} = {9 \over 4}$$

$$\therefore$$ $${1 \over 2}mv_{\max }^2$$ = $${9 \over 4}$$

$$ \Rightarrow {1 \over 2} \times 1 \times {v^2}_{\max .} = {9 \over 4}$$

$$ \Rightarrow {v_{\max }} = {3 \over {\sqrt 2 }}$$ m/s

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

A particle of mass $$100g$$ is thrown vertically upwards with a speed of $$5$$ $$m/s$$. The work done by the force of gravity during the time the particle goes up is

A

$$-0.5J$$

B

$$-1.25J$$

C

$$1.25J$$

D

$$0.5J$$

Kinetic energy at point of throwing is converted into potential energy of the particle during rise.

$$K.E = {1 \over 2}m{v^2} = {1 \over 2} \times 0.1 \times 25 = 1.25\,J$$

$$W = - mgh = - \left( {{1 \over 2}m{v^2}} \right) = - 1.25\,J$$

$$\left[ \, \right.$$ As we know, $$mgh = {1 \over 2}m{v^2}$$ by energy conservation $$\left. \, \right]$$

$$K.E = {1 \over 2}m{v^2} = {1 \over 2} \times 0.1 \times 25 = 1.25\,J$$

$$W = - mgh = - \left( {{1 \over 2}m{v^2}} \right) = - 1.25\,J$$

$$\left[ \, \right.$$ As we know, $$mgh = {1 \over 2}m{v^2}$$ by energy conservation $$\left. \, \right]$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

A ball of mass $$0.2$$ $$kg$$ is thrown vertically upwards by applying a force by hand. If the hand moves $$0.2$$ $$m$$ while applying the force and the ball goes upto $$2$$ $$m$$ height further, find the magnitude of the force. (consider $$g = 10\,m/{s^2}$$).

A

$$4N$$

B

$$16$$ $$N$$

C

$$20$$ $$N$$

D

$$22$$ $$N$$

According to energy conservation law,

Work done by the hand and due to gravity = total change in the kinetic energy

Initially the the ball is at rest and finally at top its velocity become zero so total change in kinetic energy $$\Delta K$$ = 0

$${W_{hand}} + {W_{gravity}} = \Delta K$$

[Here distance covered would be 0.2 meter for force by hand as force is applied while ball is in contact with hand.

And gravity will still work while ball is in contact with hand so total distance due to gravity would be 2 + 0.2 = 2.2 meter.]

$$ \Rightarrow F\left( {0.2} \right) - \left( {0.2} \right)\left( {10} \right)\left( {2.2} \right)$$ $$ = 0 \Rightarrow F = 22\,N$$

$$\therefore$$ Option (D) is correct.

$$\therefore$$ Option (D) is correct.
