MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Two wires are made of the same material and have the same volume. However wire $$1$$ has cross-sectional area $$A$$ and wire $$2$$ has cross-sectional area $$3A.$$ If the length of wire $$1$$ increases by $$\Delta x$$ on applying force $$F,$$ how much force is needed to stretch wire $$2$$ by the same amount?
A
$$4F$$
B
$$6F$$
C
$$9F$$
D
$$F$$

Explanation


As shown in the figure, the wires will have the same Young's modulus (same material) and the length of the wire of area of cross-section $$3A$$ will be $$\ell /3$$ (same volume as wire $$1$$).
For wire $$1,$$
$$y = {{F/A} \over {\Delta x/\ell }}\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,...(i)$$
For wire $$2.$$
$$Y = {{F'/3A} \over {\Delta x/\left( {\ell /3} \right)}}........(ii)$$
From $$(i)$$ and $$(ii),$$ $${F \over A} \times {\ell \over {\Delta x}} = {{F'} \over {3A}} \times {\ell \over {3\Delta x}} \Rightarrow F' = 9F$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
A jar is filled with two non-mixing liquids $$1$$ and $$2$$ having densities $${\rho _1}$$ and $${\rho _2}$$ respectively. A solid ball, made of a material of density $${\rho _3}$$, is dropped in the jar. It comes to equilibrium in the position shown in the figure. Which of the following is true for $${\rho _1}$$ , $${\rho _1}$$ and $${\rho _3}$$ ?
A
$${\rho _3} < {\rho _1} < \rho {}_2$$
B
$${\rho _1} > {\rho _3} > \rho {}_2$$
C
$${\rho _1} < {\rho _2} < \rho {}_3$$
D
$${\rho _1} < {\rho _3} < \rho {}_2$$

Explanation

From the figure it is clear that liquid $$1$$ floats on liquid $$2.$$ The lighter liquid floats over heavier liquid. Therefore we can conclude that $${\rho _1} < {\rho _2}$$

Also $${\rho _3} < {\rho _2}$$ otherwise the ball would have sink to the bottom of the jar.

Also $${\rho _3} > {\rho _1}$$ otherwise the ball would have floated in liquid $$1.$$ From the above discussion we conclude that $${\rho _1} < {\rho _2} < {\rho _3}.$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
A capillary tube (A) is dipped in water. Another identical tube (B) is dipped in a soap-water solution. Which of the following shows the relative nature of the liquid columns in the two tubes?
A
B
C
D

Explanation

In case of water, the meniscus shape is concave upwards. Also according to ascent formula $$h = {{2T\,\cos \,\theta } \over {r\rho g}}$$

The surface tension $$(I)$$ of soap solution is less than water. Therefore rise of soap solution in the capillary tube is less as compared to water. As in the case of water. the meniscus shape of soap solution is also concave upwards.

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
A spherical solid ball of volume $$V$$ is made of a material of density $${\rho _1}$$. It is falling through a liquid of density $${\rho _2}\left( {{\rho _2} < {\rho _1}} \right)$$. Assume that the liquid applies a viscous force on the ball that is proportional to the square of its speed $$v,$$ i.e., $${F_{viscous}} = - k{v^2}\left( {k > 0} \right).$$ The terminal speed of the ball is
A
$$\sqrt {{{Vg\left( {{\rho _1} - {\rho _2}} \right)} \over k}} $$
B
$${{{Vg{\rho _1}} \over k}}$$
C
$$\sqrt {{{Vg{\rho _1}} \over k}} $$
D
$${{Vg\left( {{\rho _1} - {\rho _2}} \right)} \over k}$$

Explanation


The forces acting on the ball -

(1) mg = $$V{\rho _1}g$$ downward direction

(2) Thrust upward direction ( By Archimedes principle )

(3) Force of friction ( Buoynat force) upward direction

The ball reaches to its terminal speed $$\left( {{v_t}} \right)$$ when acceleration = 0.

So, weight $$=$$ Buoyant force $$+$$ Viscous force

$$\therefore$$ $$V\rho {}_1g = V{\rho _2}g + kv_t^2$$

$$\therefore$$ $${v_t} = \sqrt {{{Vg\left( {{\rho _1} - {\rho _2}} \right)} \over k}} $$
