1. Answer (2) 3. Answer (3)


From v = u + at Till both are in air (From t = 0 to t = 8 second)
v=0–g×t x = x2 – x1 = 30t
 v = –gt  x  t
And just after collision velocity is upwarded then When second stone hits ground and first stone is
after some time it becomes zero and then negative. in air x decreases.

For vernier scale with 1 MSD = 1 mm and
Available bandwidth = 10% of 10 × 109 Hz 9 MSD = 10 VSD,
