## 2. (c) Time taken by ball to reach maximum height, v = u - gt

at maximum height, final speed is zero i.e. v = 0
So,
u = gT
u
T=
g
In 2 s, u = 2 9.8 = 19.6 m/s
If man throws the ball with velocity of 19.6 m/s, then after 2 s it will
reach the maximum height. When he throws 2nd ball, 1st is at top.
When he throws third ball, 1st will come to ground and 2nd will be
at the top. Therefore only 2 balls are in air. If he wants to keep
more than 2 balls in air he should throw the ball with a speed
greater than 19.6 m/s.

Tension is maximum when cos q = + 1

## As the magnitudes of OA and OB are equal,

60
the components of OA and OB along the
wall are equal and in the same direction,
while those perpendicular to the wall are
A
equal and opposite. Thus, the change in
momentum is due to only the change in
direction of the perpendicular components.
Hence,
DP = OB sin 30 - ( - OA sin 30 )
= mv sin 30 - ( - mv sin 30 )
= 2 mv sin 30
Its time rate will appear in the form of average force acting on the
wall.

F t = 2 mv sin 30

F=

Given,

30

v = 10 2 m/s
So, speed of heavier part of a fragment is 10 2 m/s.

## The vector OA represents the

momentum of the object before the collision
and the vector OB that after the collision.
The vector AB represents the change in
momentum of the object DP

cos q = sin q
q = 45
Thus,
AOC = BOC = 180 - 45 = 135

## Equating the momentum of the system along OA and OB to zero,

we get

m 30 - 3 m v cos q = 0
... (ii)
m 30 - 3 m v sin q = 0
From Eqs (i) and (ii), we get
3 mv cos q = 3 mv sin q

## m = 0.5 kg, v = 12 m/s, t = 0.25 s

q = 30

## The potential difference across V will be same as the terminal

voltage of either cell. Since current is drawn from the cell of 18 V,
hence, V1 = E1 - i r1 = 18 - (2 2 ) = 18 - 4 = 14 V
Similarly, current enters in the cell of 12 V, hence V2 = E 2 + i r2
= 12 + 2 1 = 14 V

diode, the forward resistance is zero. Therefore, entire applied

## 1. (b,c,d) If the particle is projected with velocity u at an angle q, then

equation of its trajectory will be

## The speed of boat B with respect to ground v B = v 2 - u 2

gx 2

y = x tan q -

2 u 2 cos 2 q
dy
We know slope is given by, m =
dx
gx
Therefore, slope, m = tan q u 2 cos 2 q
It implies that the graph between slope and x will be straight line
having negative slope and a non-zero positive intercept on y-axis.
But x is directly proportional to the time t, therefore the shape of
graph between slope and time will be same as that of the graph
between slope and x. Hence, only option (a) is correct i.e.
options (b), (c) and (d) are incorrect.

vA > vB
To the ground observer, since the boat moves normal to the river
currents therefore, it reaches the point exactly opposite point to
the starting one.
The velocity of boat A with respect to ground is more that of boat
B. Therefore A travels longer distance with respect to ground
frame. The downward distance travelled by A

## where, f is the frictional force exerting between x and y is required

to keep the blocks stationary and T is tension in the string.
Then, for the equilibrium of the blocks
(i)
m y g sin q = T + f
and
(ii)
m x g sin q = T - f
Solving Eqs (i) and (ii), we get,
( m - m x ) g sin q

The blocks will remain stationary for this condition otherwise not.
When, m x = m y , f = 0 and T = m x g sin q and the system is in
equilibrium. If m y < m x , the blocks will move only when
m ( m x - m y )tan q / 2 m x .

## 7. (a, b, c) As we know that the change in internal energy during a

cyclic process is zero. This implies, that the heat supplied to the
gas is equal to work done by the gas.

Now, the work done during process CA is zero, because the

Therefore, 8300 + WBC = - 1000 J WBC = - 9300 J

10. (a, d) When proton enters the magnetic field induction region with
some inclination with it. The velocity has two components i.e. the
component of velocity parallel to induction is
v|| = 2 10 5 cos 45 = 2 10 5 m/s
and the component of velocity perpendicular and the magnetic
induction, v ^ = 2 10 5 cos 45 = 2 10 5

When the cylinder starts moving on the plank rolling as well as
rotational motion will be retarted. Initially block is having

where, (C is critical

refracted, but H1 is not

the minimum height. H3
For ray 3 with angle of
incidence i 3( i 3 < C ) the ray will get reflected
(due to
phenomenon of TIR), now for light ray 2 with angle of incidence i 2
( i 2 = C ) the ray will just refracted (limiting ray) and corresponding
H 2 will be minimum height so, that light will just refracted. For TIR
at that point of incidence on curved surface. We can early say
that, as h increases i decreases and for TIP at the point of
incidence minimum value of i should be C and corresponding to
that h will be minimum for refraction.

## According to Snells law, we get

15. (3) It is based on the thermal conductivity of the material and bulk
modulus of elasticity. We can directly relate change in length of
steel bar with stress applied in bar and easily.
Consider an element of the bar of the length dx shown in figure.

## Change in length of element dx due to temperature difference is

dU = dx T

dU = dx 0 2

Integrating both sides, we get

1. (c) Let the heat produced be H, the current through the wire be I,
the resistance be R and the time be t. Since heat is a form of
energy, its dimensional formula is [ML2 T 2 ].
Let us assume that the required equation is
H = KI a R bt c ,
where, K is a dimensional constant.
Writing dimensions of both sides,
[ML2 T 2 ] =[ I a ][ML2I 2 T 3 ]b [Tc ]
= [M bL2b T 3b + c I a 2 b ]
Equating the exponents, we get
b =1
2b =2
3b + c = 2
a 2b = 0
Solving these, we get, a = 2, b = 1 and c = 1
Thus, the required equation is H = KI 2 Rt

2. (b) Velocity of the centre = v0 and the angular velocity about the
v0
. Thus v 0 > 0 r. The sphere slips forward and thus the
2r
friction by the plane on the sphere will act backward. As the
friction is kinetic, its value is N = Mg and the sphere will be
f
deacelerated by cm =
m
Hence,
f
...(i)
v(t ) = v 0 t

This friction will also have torque = fr about the centre. This
torque is clockwise and in the direction of 0 . Hence, the angular
acceleration about the centre will be

3. (a) The field is required at a point outside the sphere. Dividing the
sphere in concentric shells, each shell can be replaced by a point
particle at its centre having mass equal to the mass of the shell.
Thus, the whole sphere can be replaced by a point particle at its
centre having mass equal to the mass of the given sphere. If the
mass of the sphere is M, the gravitational field at the given point is
GM
GM
...(i)
E=

The mass M may be calculated as follows. Consider a concentric
shell of radius r and thickness dr

28

Its volume is
dV = ( 4 r 2 )d r
a
and its mass is dM = dv = 0 ( 4 r 2dr )
r
= 4 0 ardr
The mass of the whole sphere is

M = 4 0 ardr

Thus, Poutput = Vt Ia = 120 48 = 5760 W

5
a y = (1.5 m/s 2 )(sin 37 )
= (1.5 m/s 2 )
and

3
= 0.90 m/s 2
5
The initial velocity has components 4 x = 8.0 m/s
and
vy = 0
At
t = 0, x = 0 and y = 0
The x-component of the velocity at time t = 4.0 s is given by
v x = u x + a xt
= 8.0 m/s + (12
. m/s 2 )( 4.0 s )
= 1.5

## = 8.0 + 4.8 = 12 .8 m/s

The y-component of velocity at t = 4.0 s is given by
v y = u y + a yt
= 0 + ( 0.90 m/s 2 )( 4.0 s )
= 3.6 m/s 2
The velocity of the particle at t = 4.0 s is
v = v x2 + v y2 = (12 .8 m/s)2 + ( 3.6 m/s)2
= 13.3 m/s
The velocity makes an angle with x-axis where,

So, t = 10 5 10 5 loge 2 = 0.693 s
However in circuit (b) as capacitor is connected directly to the

Thus, within 400 nm to 700 nm, the integer n can have the values

For part (2) u < 0, v < 0, then it is real object and virtual image.
For part (3) u > 0, v < 0, so it is virtual object and real image.

or
v r = ( 1)
The angular dispersion produced by the crown prism is
( v r ) A = ( 1)A
Similarly, the angular dispersion produced by the flint prism is

## For achromatic combination, the net dispersion should be zero.

Thus,

A ( 1)

The deviation in the yellow ray produced by the crown prism is

deviation produced by the combination is
= ( 1) A ( 1) A
or
(ii)
1 = 0.517 A 0.625 A
Solving Eqs. (i) and (ii)
A = 4.8 and A = 2 .4 . Thus, the crown prism should have its
refracting angle 4.8 and that of the flint prism should be 2.4.
