Assertion and Reason

Pitch

=

Number of divisions of circular scale

Less the value of pitch, less will be least

count of screw gauge leading to len

uncertainty that is more accuracy in the

measurement.

From the above relation we conclude that

least count of screw gauge is inversely

proportional to the number of divisions of

circular scale.

Thus reason is false.

Introductory Exercise 3.1

1. Suppose

constant velocity v (along the axis of x).

Displacement of particle in time t1 = vt1

Displacement of particle in time t2 = vt2

Displacement of the particle in the time

interval t ( = t2 t1)

= vt2 vt1

= v ( t2 t1)

Average velocity in the time interval

v ( t2 t1)

t =

( t2 t1)

=v

Now, as the particle is moving with

constant velocity (i.e., with constant speed

in a given direction) its velocity and speed

at any instant will obviously be v.

Ans. True.

(b) (i) No. In curved path there will always

be acceleration. (As explained in the

previous answer no. 3)

(ii) Yes. In projectile motion the path of

the particle is a curved one while

acceleration of the particle remains

constant.

(iii) Yes. In curved path the acceleration

will always be there. Even if the path

is circular with constant speed the

direction of the acceleration of the

particle would every time be changing.

Assertion and Reason

4. In circular motion only the work done by

1. P = Fv

must also be constant. Thus, assertion is

false.

According to 2nd low of motion, net

constant force will always produce a

constant acceleration. Reason is true.

Correct option is (d).

2. As displacement is opposite to force

negative.

Thus, Assertion is true. Further, as reason

is the correct explanation of the Assertion.

Correct option is (a).

3. Conservative force has nothing to do with

acts on a particles, there would be loss of

KE). Thus, assertion is false.

Work done by conservative force decreases

PE (reason is true).

A

false, centripetal force acts towards centre

while the velocity acts tangentially.

Reason is true.

Correct option is (d).

5. As the speed is increasing (slope of graph

in the +ive direction of displacement.

Thus, work done to all forces will be

positive, Assertion is true and also as

explained above reason besides being true

is the correct explanation for the

Assertion.

Correct option is (a).

W = mgh

If PE at A is zero.

The PE at B would be mgh.

Correct option is (d).

W AB = F s = F s cos

Similarly, W AC = F s

= F s cos (90 + )

= F s sin

WCD = F s = F s cos

WDB = F s cos(90 )

= F s sin

W AC + WCD + WDB = F s cos = W AB

Work done by a constant force is path

independent. thus, Assertion is true.

The Reason is false. Kinetic frictional

force remains constant but is a

non-conservative force.

Correct option is (c).

in reason.

N

B

explained in the answer to question no. 2

of introductory exercise 6.2.

Earth is non-inertial which is also true is

a separate issue and has nothing to do

with the assertion.

Thus, option (b) would be the answer.

8. When block is depressed the excess of

and will bring the block up. The velocity

gained by block will take the block above

its equilibrium and the block will oscillate

about its equilibrium position (as given in

reason). Thus, the block will be in

equilibrium in the vertical direction.

Thus, assertion is also true and the reason

being correct explanation of the assertion.

Correct option is (a).

9. As displacement ( = s2 s1) is not equal to

be zero. Therefore, assertion is false.

Work done by all the forces is equal to

change in KE is as per work-energy

theorem. Thus, reason is true.

Correct option is (d).

10. When the block comes down the wedge,

actually displacement of normal force will

not be along the wedge (see chapter on

CM). It will along AB as shown in figure.

Thus, the angle between N (normal force

on block) and its displacement AB will be

be negative and that by N (on wedge) will

be positive as given in assertion.

Reason also being the correct explanation

of the assertion.

11. There will be increase in length of the

elastic cord.

f1 (on block) = f1s

Work done by static force

f1 (on plank) = + f1s

Work done by static force f1 on the

system (block + plank + cord) = 0

Thus, reason is true.

The work done by the force F will be used

up in doing work against friction f2 and

also increasing the elastic potential

energy of the cord. Thus, assertion is true.

Further, as the reason is the correct

explanation of the assertion.

Objective Questions (Level 1)

Single Correct Option

1. Momentum remains conserved. Decrease

sand while KE does not remain conserved

as it gets used up in doing work against

friction.

2. Fext

= M aCM

net

If Fext

= 0,

aCM = 0

d

i.e.,

v

=0

dt CM

or

vCM = constant

Option (a) is correct.

3. The forces acting on the blocks would be

equal and opposite as per Newton's 3rd

law of motion. Acceleration of the blocks

will depend upon their masses as per

Newtons 2nd law of motion. Accelerations

being different velocities will be unequal.

M1

M2

4. While colliding the balls will apply equal

other. Impulsive forces will change the

momentum of the balls but the total

momentum of the system of 2 balls will

remain conserved impulsive forces being

internal ones. Change in momentum of

the system will definitely be due to

external gravitational forces on the balls

but as the time of impact shall be very less

the impulsive force will over shadow the

weak gravitational force.

5. External force acting on the cannon shell

Now, as no extra net external force would

be act on the shell during collision the

momentum of the system shall remain

conserved and the CM of the system (now

broken in pieces) will also keep on

following the path which the shell would

have followed had the explosion not taken

place. Further, as the explosion would

never be super-elastic, the KE of the

system cant increase after explosion.

Option (d) is correct.

6.

Velocity of separation

=e

Velocity of approach

Velocity of separation < velocity of

approach

(when e = 0, the velocity of separation in

zero and the colliding bodies do not

separate from each other.)

Further, whether the collision in elastic or

inelastic the law of conservation of

momentum always hold gord.

Option (d) is correct.

p = p1 + p2 + p3 + ....,

Further, we define momentum for every

type of motion.

Option (d) is correct.

aCM =

188 | Mechanics-1

As F is constant, the value of aCM will

remain constant (Reason).

As CM is accelerated the velocity of CM

will obviously increase (Assertion).

Option (a) is correct.

3. As per assertion if force is applied on a

system must not remain conserved. But, it

will not be true if we apply two equal and

opposite external forces on the system as

then net external force on the system will

be zero and the linear momentum will

remain conserved as given under Reason

which is correct.

Option (d) is correct.

4. A rocket moves forward due to the thrust

law of motion (as given under Reason)

when gas inside (not the surrounding air

as given under assertion) it is pushed

backwards.

Option (d) is correct.

5. Linear momentum of a system remains

on the system i.e., only a net external force

on a system can change its linear

momentum. Inside a system internal

forces are always in pairs and as such

can't change linear momentum.

If two blocks connected by a spring placed

on a smooth surface are stretched apart

the internal restoring forces acting on

blocks will definitely increase the KE of

the system but this argument under

Reason has nothing to do with the nothing

under Assertion that internal forces can't

change linear momentum.

Option (b) is correct.

This is what is given in Assertion.

Thus, both Assertion and Reason are true

and also reason is the correct explanation

of the assertion.

Option (a) is correct.

7. As no net external force is acting there on

momentum of the system remains

conserved along horizontal direction but

as gravitational force (a net external force)

acts on block in the vertical direction

(downwards) the momentum of the system

does not remain constant along vertical

direction. As overall momentum of the

system does not remain constant,

Assertion is true.

As wedge is at rest, Reason is false.

Option (c) is correct.

8. In any collision, there is not change in the

reason, which is true.

i.e.,

p1 + p2 = 0

p1 = p2

(i)

Assertion is false.

Option (d) is correct.

9. Reason is true as explained in the answer

answer to question no. 8.

As KE is inversely proportional to mass,

K

the KE of the block of man 2m will be

Assertion is true.

Further, as Reason is the correct

would be (a).

10. Assertion is false as for example heat

11. As no external force would be acting on

the line joining electron and proton the

(a) (r)

When spring is released after compressing

it, the restoring on B will accelerate it

towards right while the reaction force on

A will apply a force on the wall which in

turn will apply equal and opposite force on

A and consequently A will travel towards

right. As both travel towards right the

velocity of CM will be maximum in the

beginning.

After this A will start compressing the

spring and at a certain instant when the

spring is compressed to maximum value

both the blocks will travel towards right

with a constant velocity and then the

velocity of CM will become constant.

(b) (q)

As the blocks will never move along

y-axis, the y-component of the CM of the

two blocks will not change.

(d) (p)

As the two blocks will keep on moving

towards right (surface below being

blocks will keep on increasing.

first particle will remain on ground at

rest.

Now, let us find the position of 2nd

particle at t = 5 s

Initial momentum

pCM = pA + pB

(b) (r)

Velocity given to block B will compress the

spring and this will gradually increase the

velocity of A. When the spring gets

compressed to its maximum both the

blocks will have the same velocities i.e.,

same momentum as both have same mass.

pA = pB

(at maximum compression of the spring)

But, pA + pB = initial momentum of B.

pA + pA = 2

i.e.,

pA = 1 kgms 1

(c) (q)

After the maximum compression in the

spring, the spring will gradually expand

but now the velocity of block A will

increase and that of B will decrease and

when the spring attains maximum

expansion the velocity of B will be zero

and so will be its momentum.
