An object is dropped from a height h from the ground. Every time it hits the ground it looses 50% of its kinetic energy. The total distance covered as t $$ \to $$ $$\infty $$ is :
A
3h
B
$$\infty $$
C
$${5 \over 3}$$h
D
$${8 \over 3}$$h

Explanation

Let,

Kinetic energy (k) = $${1 \over 2}$$ m $$\upsilon $$2 before it hit the ground.

After hitting the ground kinetic energy

(k') = $${1 \over 2}$$ m $$\upsilon $$$$_1^2$$

$$\therefore\,\,\,$$According to the question,

$${1 \over 2}$$ m$$\upsilon $$$$_1^2$$ = $${1 \over 2}$$ $$ \times $$ $${1 \over 2}$$ m$$\upsilon $$2

$$ \Rightarrow $$$$\,\,\,$$ $$\upsilon $$1 = $${v \over {\sqrt 2 }}$$

After hitting the ground the object will bounce

h' = $${{v_1^2} \over {2g}}$$ = $${{{v^2}} \over {4g}}$$ = $${h \over 2}$$ [ as    h = $${{{v^2}} \over {2g}}$$ ]

Total distance travelled from the time it first hits the ground to the next time it hits the ground is = $${h \over 2}$$ + $${h \over 2}$$ = h

So, this will create a infinite geometric progression with the common ration $${1 \over 2}$$.

$$\therefore\,\,\,$$ Total distance covered

= h (distance travelled by the obhect when first dropped, before it hits the ground)
+ (h + $${h \over 2}$$ + $${h \over 4}$$ + . . . . . . . .$$ \propto $$)

= h + $${h \over {1 - {1 \over 2}}}$$

= h + 2h

= 3h

Two particles A and B of equal mass M are moving with the same speed $$\upsilon $$ as shown in the figure. They collide completely inelastically and move as a single particle C. The angle $$\theta $$ that the path of C makes with the X-axis is given by :

A
tan $$\theta $$ = $${{\sqrt 3 + \sqrt 2 } \over {1 - \sqrt 2 }}$$
B
tan $$\theta $$ = $${{\sqrt 3 - \sqrt 2 } \over {1 - \sqrt 2 }}$$
C
tan $$\theta $$ = $${{1 - \sqrt 2 } \over {\sqrt 2 \left( {1 + \sqrt 3 } \right)}}$$
D
tan $$\theta $$ = $${{1 - \sqrt 3 } \over {1 + \sqrt 2 }}$$

Explanation



Using conservation of linear moments,

Along X-axis,

2MV'cos$$\theta $$ = MVsin30o $$-$$ MVsin45o . . . . . (1)

Along Y - axis,

2Mv' sin$$\theta $$ = Mv cos30o + Mv cos45o . . . . . (2)

Dividing (2) by (1), we get,

$${{\sin \theta } \over {\cos \theta }}$$ = $${{\cos {{30}^ \circ } + \cos {{45}^ \circ }} \over {\sin {{30}^ \circ } - \sin {{45}^ \circ }}}$$

= $${{{{\sqrt 3 } \over 2} + {1 \over {\sqrt 2 }}} \over {{1 \over 2} - {1 \over {\sqrt 2 }}}}$$

$$\therefore\,\,\,$$ tan$$\theta $$ = $${{\sqrt 3 + \sqrt 2 } \over {1 - \sqrt 2 }}$$

In a collinear collision, a particle with an initial speed v0 strikes a stationary particle of the same mass. If the final total kinetic energy is 50% greater than the original kinetic energy, the magnitude of the relative velocity between the two particles, after collision, is :
A
$${{{v_0}} \over {\sqrt 2 }}$$
B
$${{v_0}} \over 4$$
C
$$\sqrt 2 {v_0}$$
D
$${{v_0}} \over 2$$

Explanation

From conservation of linear momentum,

mv0 = mv1 + mv2

or v0 = v1 + v2 ........(1)

According to the question,

Kf = $${3 \over 2}$$Ki

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $${1 \over 2}mv_1^2 + {1 \over 2}mv_2^2 = {3 \over 2} \times {1 \over 2}mv_0^2$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$v_1^2 + v_2^2 = {3 \over 2}v_0^2$$

Using eq (1) $${\left( {{v_1} + {v_2}} \right)^2} = v_0^2$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$v_1^2 + v_2^2 + 2{v_1}{v_2}$$ = $$v_0^2$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$2{v_1}{v_2}$$ = $$v_0^2 - {3 \over 2}v_0^2$$ = $$ - {1 \over 2}v_0^2$$

Now, $${\left( {{v_1} - {v_2}} \right)^2}$$ = $${\left( {{v_1} + {v_2}} \right)^2} - 4{v_1}{v_2}$$

= $$v_0^2 - \left( { - v_0^2} \right)$$ = $$2v_0^2$$

$$\therefore$$ $${{v_1} - {v_2}}$$ = $$\sqrt 2 {v_0}$$
