(iv) A car is moving in a circular path of radius 50 m, on a flat rough horizontal ground. The mass of the car is
1000 kg. At a certain moment, when the speed of the car is 5 m/s, the driver is increasing speed at the rate

Q.3 Krrish is saving a child in a building caught by fire. He and child are trapped and he ties a rope and drops
it out of window. Unfortunately, the tensile strength of the rope is 900 N and Krrish & child's combine
mass is 100 kilograms. He therefore decides to let the rope slide through his hands, pulling just hard
enough on it so it doesn't break. What will be his speed at the bottomof the rope as he hits the ground?
Assume the rope is 12 meters long and that Krrish's vertical speed is zero as he leaves the window at the
top of the rope.
