#### Question 1:

Is it always true that the molecules of a dense liquid are heavier than the molecules of a lighter liquid?

#### Answer:

Density is defined as mass per unit volume. It tells how closely packed are the molecules inside an object. When molecules are tightly packed, we say that the object is dense; when molecules are far apart, we say that the object is light.

The density of a liquid depends on the mass of the molecules that make up the liquid and the closeness of the molecules of the liquid. It is not always true that the molecules of a dense liquid are heavier than the molecules of a lighter liquid.

For example, alcohol is less dense than oil. Alcohol molecules are mostly carbon and hydrogen atoms, so they are similar to oil. But they also contain an oxygen atom, which makes them a little heavy. For this reason, you might think that alcohol is denser than oil. But because of their shape and size, alcohol molecules do not pack as efficiently as oil molecules. This property of molecules makes alcohol less dense than oil.

#### Question 2:

If someone presses a pointed needle against your skin, you are hurt. But if someone presses a rod against your skin with the same force, you easily tolerate. Explain.

#### Answer:

We know that pressure is the application of force over a particular area. In mathematical terms, pressure is equal to force divided by area; that is, with more force comes more pressure and with more area comes less pressure. An iron rod has more surface area than the pointed tip of a needle. That is why the pointed needle exerts more pressure than the iron rod (with the same force) when pressed against our skin.

#### Question 3:

In the derivation of *P*_{1} − *P*_{2} = ρ*gz*, it was assumed that the liquid is incompressible. Why will this equation not be strictly valid for a compressible liquid?

#### Answer:

In case of an incompressible liquid, the density is independent of the variations in pressure and always remains constant. But it is not so in case of a compressible liquid. Thus, the given equation will not be strictly valid for a compressible liquid.

#### Page No 270:

#### Question 4:

Suppose the density of air at Madras is ρ_{o} and atmospheric pressure is *P*_{0}. If we go up, the density and the pressure both decrease. Suppose we wish to calculate the pressure at a height 10 km above Madras. If we use the equation *P*_{o} − *P* = ρ_{o}*gz*, will we get a pressure more than the actual or less than the actual? Neglect the variation in *g*. Does your answer change if you also consider the variation in *g*?

#### Answer:

Using the equation *P*_{o} − *P* = ρ_{o}*gz*, we get:

*P* = *P*_{o} − ρ_{o}*gz*

The pressure calculated by using this equation will be more than the actual pressure because density at a height of 10 km above Madras will be less than ρ_{o}.

Yes, the answer will change if we also consider the variation in *g*. Because *g* decreases with height, it will have the same effect on pressure as that of density.

#### Question 5:

The free surface of a liquid resting in an inertial frame is horizontal. Does the normal to the free surface pass through the centre of the earth? Think separately if the liquid is (a) at the equator (b) at a pole (c) somewhere else.

#### Answer:

Yes, the normal to the free surface of the liquid passes through the centre of the Earth. Because of the gravitational force, the free surface of the liquid takes the shape of the surface of the Earth. Also, because the gravitational force is directed towards the centre of the Earth, the normal to the free surface also passes through the centre of the Earth (in all cases).

#### Question 6:

A barometer tube reads 76 cm of mercury. If the tube is gradually inclined keeping the open end immersed in the mercury reservoir, will the length of mercury column be 76 cm, more than 76 cm or less than 76 cm?

#### Answer:

The length of the mercury column will be more than 76 cm. The pressure depends on the height of the highest point of the mercury from the ground and not on the length of the liquid column.

$\mathrm{Let}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}l=\mathrm{Length}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{mercury}\mathrm{column}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\theta =\mathrm{Angle}\mathrm{at}\mathrm{which}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{tube}\mathrm{is}\mathrm{inclined}\mathrm{with}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{vertical}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Given}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}h=76\mathrm{cm}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}l\mathrm{cos}\theta =h\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{or},l=\frac{h}{\mathrm{cos}\theta}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore lh\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

Or,

*l* > 76 cm

#### Question 7:

A one meter long glass tube is open at both ends. One end of the tube is dipped into a mercury cup, the tube is kept vertical and the air is pumped out of the tube by connecting the upper end to a suction pump. Can mercury be pulled up into the pump by this process?

#### Answer:

No, mercury cannot be pulled up into the pump by this process. The level up to which mercury can rise is 76 cm (to maintain equal pressure at points A and B).

#### Page No 270:

#### Question 8:

A satellite revolves round the earth. Air pressure inside the satellite is maintained at 76 cm of mercury. What will be the height of mercury column in a barometer tube 1 m long placed in the satellite?

#### Answer:

Pressure at point A is 76 cm of mercury. Therefore, mercury will rise to full length of the tube, i.e., 1 m, to maintain equal pressure at points A and B. Inside the satellite, ${\mathrm{g}}_{\mathrm{effective}}=0$, so the pressure due to height of the mercury column will be zero.

#### Page No 270:

#### Question 9:

Consider the barometer shown in figure. If a small hole is made at a point *P* in the barometer tube, will the mercury come out from this hole?

**figure**

#### Answer:

Two pressures are acting upon point P:

(1) Pressure due to mercury level above point P equals to *P*_{1} (say)

(2) Atmospheric pressure = *P*_{0} (inwards)

And,

*P*_{0}_{ }> *P*_{1}

As the inward pressure is more, the mercury will not come out of the hole.

#### Question 10:

Is Archimedes' principle valid in an elevator accelerating up ? In a car accelerating on a level road?

#### Answer:

Archimedes' principle is not valid in case of an elevator accelerating upwards, but it is valid for a car accelerating on a level road.

According to Archimedes' principle,

Buoyant force, *B *= Weight of the substituted liquid

Or,

*B = mg *

The above principle is satisfied in case of a car accelerating on a level road.

In case of an elevator, the buoyant force will be as below:

*B = mg + ma* (If the elevator is going upwards with an acceleration *a*)

Thus, Archimedes' principle is not valid in this case.

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 11:

Why is it easier to swim in sea water than in fresh water?

#### Answer:

Whether an object sinks or floats in a liquid depends upon the density of the two. We know that sea water has dissolved salts in it, which increase its density. So, sea water exerts more buoyancy force (in the upward direction) on the swimmer than that exerted by fresh water. This helps the person to swim easily in sea water compared to fresh water.

#### Question 12:

A glass of water has an ice cube floating in water. The water level just touches the rim of the glass. Will the water overflow when the ice melts?

#### Answer:

The water of mass equal to the mass of the ice cube will take less volume compared to the ice cube. The water will not overflow when the ice melts because the ice will displace the space it would take if it were in a liquid state.

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 13:

A ferry boat loaded with rocks has to pass under a bridge. The maximum height of the rocks is slightly more than the height of the bridge so that the boat just fails to pass under the bridge. Should some of the rocks be removed or some more rocks be added?

#### Answer:

Some rocks should be added to increase the force acting in the downward direction. It will help the boat to pass under the bridge. If some rocks are removed, the upthrust of water on the boat will be greater than the weight of the boat. So, the boat will rise in water and will fail to pass under the bridge.

#### Question 14:

Water is slowly coming out from a vertical pipe. As the water descends after coming out, its area of cross section reduces. Explain this on the basis of the equation of continuity.

#### Answer:

Let *a* be the area of cross section and* **v *be the velocity of water.

According to the equation of continuity,

*av* = Constant

or, $v\alpha \frac{1}{a}$

It means the larger the area of cross section, the smaller will be the velocity of liquid and vice versa.

Thus, as the water comes out of the vertical pipe, its velocity increases and area of cross section decreases.

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 15:

While watering a distant plant, a gardener partially closes the exit hole of the pipe by putting his finger on it. Explain why this results in the water stream going to a larger distance.

#### Answer:

According to the equation of continuity, if the exit hole of the pipe is partially closed, the water stream comes out with more velocity due to decrease in area. This results in the water stream going to a larger distance.

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 16:

A Gipsy car has a canvass top. When the car runs at high speed, the top bulges out. Explain.

#### Answer:

This can be explained through Bernoulli's principle, which states that the higher the air speed, the lower the pressure in that area. Because the air inside the car does not move, the pressure in the car is atmospheric. Because air moves outside the car (directly above it), the pressure is low. The canvas top of the Gipsy car is pushed upwards because the pressure inside the car is greater than the pressure directly above the car.

#### Question 1:

A liquid can easily change its shape but a solid can not because

(a) the density of a liquid is smaller than that of a solid

(b) the forces between the molecules is stronger in solid than in liquids

(c) the atoms combine to form bigger molecules in a solid

(d) the average separation between the molecules is larger in solids

#### Answer:

(b) the forces between the molecules is stronger in solids than in liquids

The forces between the particles of a solid are stronger than those between the particles of a liquid, so the particles cannot move freely but can only vibrate. Thus, a solid has stable, definite shape and volume. A solid can only change its shape by force (when broken or cut), whereas a liquid can easily change its shape because of weak inter-particle forces.

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 2:

Consider the equations

$P=\underset{\u2206s\to 0}{\mathrm{lim}}\frac{F}{\u2206S}\mathrm{and}{P}_{1}-{P}_{2}=\rho gz.$

In an elevator accelerating upward

(a) both the equations are valid

(b) the first is valid but not the second

(c) the second is valid but not the first

(d) both are invalid

#### Answer:

(b) the first is valid but not the second

For a point inside the elevator, pressure can be defined as $P=\underset{\u2206s\to 0}{\mathrm{lim}}\frac{F}{\u2206S}$. It is independent of the acceleration* *of the elevator.

The modified form of the second equation, which will be valid in the given case, is given by

${P}_{1}-{P}_{2}=\rho (g+{a}_{0})z\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

Here, acceleration* **a*_{0}_{ }(say) due to elevator accelerating upwards is also taken into account.$$

#### Question 3:

The three vessels shown in figure have same base area. Equal volumes of a liquid are poured in the three vessels. The force on the base will be

(a) maximum in vessel *A*

(b) maximum in vessel *B*

(c) maximum in vessel *C*

(d) equal in all the vessels

**Figure**

#### Answer:

(c) maximum in vessel C

Here, the height of the liquid column is maximum in vessel C. Thus, the force on the base of vessel C, i.e., $F={P}_{0}+h\mathrm{\rho}g$ where *P*_{0} is atmospheric pressure, is maximum.

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 4:

Equal mass of three liquids are kept in three identical cylindrical vessels *A*, *B* and *C*. The densities are ρ_{A}, ρ_{B}, ρ_{C} with ρ_{A} < ρ_{B} < ρ_{C}. The force on the base will be

(a) maximum in vessel *A*

(b) maximum in vessel *B*

(c) maximum in vessel *C*

(d) equal in all the vessels

#### Answer:

(d) equal in all the vessels

The force on the base is given by

$F=h\rho g\times A\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow F=\left(hA\rho \right)g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \mathrm{F}=(\mathrm{Volume}\times \mathrm{Density})\times \mathrm{g}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow F=\mathrm{mg}$

In the question, the masses are equal. So, the force on the base is the same in all cases.

#### Question 5:

Figure shows a siphon. The liquid shown is water. The pressure difference *P _{B}* −

*P*between the points

_{A}*A*and

*B*is

(a) 400 Nm

^{−2}

(b) 3000 Nm

^{−2}

(c) 1000 Nm

^{−2}

(d) zero

**figure**

#### Answer:

(d) zero

At both points A and B, pressure is equal to atmospheric pressure.

$\mathrm{Thus},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{have}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{P}_{\mathrm{A}}={P}_{\mathrm{B}}={P}_{\mathrm{atm}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {P}_{\mathrm{B}}-{P}_{\mathrm{A}}=0$

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 6:

A beaker containing a liquid is kept inside a big closed jar. If the air inside the jar is continuously pumped out, the pressure in the liquid near the bottom of the liquid will

(a) increase

(b) decrease

(c) remain constant

(d) first decrease and then increase

#### Answer:

(b) decrease

As the air inside the jar is pumped out, the air pressure decreases. Thus, the pressure in the liquid near the bottom of the beaker decreases.

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 7:

The pressure in a liquid at two points in the same horizontal plane are equal. Consider an elevator accelerating upward and a car accelerating on a horizontal road. The above statement is correct in

(a) the car only

(b) the elevator only

(c) both of them

(d) neither of them

#### Answer:

(b) the elevator only

The two points in the same horizontal line will not have equal pressure if the liquid is accelerated horizontally. There should be vertical acceleration.

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 8:

Suppose the pressure at the surface of mercury in a barometer tube is *P*_{1} and the pressure at the surface of mercury in the cup is *P*_{2}.

(a) *P*_{1} = 0, *P*_{2} = atmospheric pressure

(b) *P*_{1} = atmospheric pressure *P*_{2} = 0

(c) *P*_{1} = *P*_{2} = atmospheric pressure

(d) *P*_{1} = *P*_{2} = 0

#### Answer:

(a) *P*_{1} = 0, *P*_{2} = atmospheric pressure

The upper part of the tube contains vacuum as the mercury goes down and no air is allowed in. Thus, the pressure at the upper end, i.e., at the surface of mercury in a barometer tube is zero (*P*_{1}_{ }= 0). However, the pressure at the surface of mercury in the cup or any another point at the same horizontal plane is equal to the atmospheric pressure.

#### Page No 271:

#### Question 9:

A barometer kept in an elevator reads 76 cm when it is at rest. If the elevator goes up with increasing speed, the reading will be

(a) zero

(b) 76 cm

(c) < 76 cm

(d) > 76 cm

#### Answer:

(c) < 76 cm

If the elevator goes up at an increasing speed, then the effective value of *g *increases.

We know:

$P=\mathrm{\rho}gh$

So, *h* will have a lesser value for the same value of *P* if *g *increases.

#### Page No 272:

#### Question 10:

A barometer kept in an elevator accelerating upward reads 76 cm. The air pressure in the elevator is

(a) 76 cm

(b) < 76 cm

(c) > 76 cm

(d) zero

#### Answer:

(c) > 76 cm

When the elevator is going upwards with acceleration *a*, the effective acceleration is *a' =* (*g* + a).

Thus, pressure is given by

$P=h\mathrm{\rho}\mathit{(}g\mathit{+}a\mathit{)}\mathit{}$

Air pressure in the elevator = $P=h\text{'}\mathrm{\rho}g$

Because the pressure is the same,* h' > h.*

∴ Air pressure > 76 cm

#### Page No 272:

#### Question 11:

To construct a barometer, a tube of length 1 m is filled completely with mercury and is inverted in a mercury cup. The barometer reading on a particular day is 76 cm. Suppose a 1 m tube is filled with mercury up to 76 cm and then closed by a cork. It is inverted in a mercury cup and the cork is removed. The height of mercury column in the tube over the surface in the cup will be

(a) zero

(b) 76 cm

(c) > 76 cm

(d) < 76 cm

#### Answer:

(d) < 76 cm

Because of the trapped air, the pressure at the upper end of the mercury column inside the tube is not zero.

In other words, ${\mathrm{P}}_{0}>0$.

Using this relation, we get:

${P}_{\mathrm{atm}}={P}_{0}+\mathrm{\rho}gh\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Here},\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{\rho}=\mathrm{Density}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{mercury}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}h=\mathrm{Height}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{mercury}\mathrm{column}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\because {P}_{0}0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{And},\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{P}_{\mathrm{atm}}\mathrm{\rho}gh\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore 76\mathrm{cm}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{Hg}\mathrm{\rho}gh\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{or},h76\mathrm{cm}$

#### Question 12:

A 20 N metal block is suspended by a spring balance. A beaker containing some water is placed on a weighing machine which reads 40 N. The spring balance is now lowered so that the block gets immersed in the water. The spring balance now reads 16 N. The reading of the weighing machine will be

(a) 36 N

(b) 60 N

(c) 44 N

(d) 56 N

#### Answer:

(c) 44 N

Upthrust exerted by the water on the block = Change in the reading of the spring balance

= (20 − 16) N = 4 N

Downthrust = 4 N

Actual weight of the beaker containing water = 40 N

∴ Effective weight = (40 + 4) N = 44 N

#### Question 13:

A piece of wood is floating in water kept in a bottle. The bottle is connected to an air pump. Neglect the compressibility of water. When more air is pushed into the bottle from the pump, the piece of wood will float with

(a) larger part in the water

(b) lesser part in the water

(c) same part in the water

(d) it will sink

#### Answer:

(c) same part in the water

When more air is pushed into the bottle from the pump, the pressure of air increases on the wood as well as on the water surface with the same amount. So, the level of water and wood does not change. Thus, the piece of wood floats with the same part in the water.

#### Page No 272:

#### Question 14:

A metal cube is placed in an empty vessel. When water is filled in the vessel so that the cube is completely immersed in the water, the force on the bottom of the vessel in contact with the cube

(a) will increase

(b) will decrease

(c) will remain the same

(d) will become zero

#### Answer:

(c) will remain the same

In the absence of water, the force acting on the bottom of the vessel is due to the air and the cube. Now, when water is filled in the vessel, the force due to the water and the cube is greater. The extra force is balanced by the buoyant force acting on the cube in the upward direction.

#### Page No 272:

#### Question 15:

A wooden object floats in water kept in a beaker. The object is near a side of the beaker. Let *P*_{1}, *P*_{2}, *P*_{3} be the pressures at the three points *A*, *B* and *C* of bottom as shown in the figure.

**Figure**

(a) *P*_{1} = *P*_{2} = *P*_{3}

(b) *P*_{1} < *P*_{2} < *P*_{3}

(c) *P*_{1} > *P*_{2} > *P*_{3}

(d) *P*_{2} = *P*_{3} ≠ *P*_{1}

#### Answer:

(a) *P*_{1} = *P*_{2} = *P*_{3}

If the fluid is in equilibrium, then the pressure is the same at all points in the same horizontal level.

#### Question 16:

A closed cubical box is completely filled with water and is accelerated horizontally towards right with an acceleration α. The resultant normal force by the water on the top of the box

(a) passes through the centre of the top

(b) passes through a point to the right of the centre

(c) passes through a point to the left of the centre

(d) becomes zeros

#### Answer:

(c) passes through a point to the left of the centre

When the box is accelerated towards right, the water in the box experiences a pseudo force (*ma*) towards left, where *m* is the mass of water. So, the resultant normal force by the water on the top of the box passes through a point to the left of the centre.

#### Page No 272:

#### Question 17:

Consider the situation of the previous problem. Let the water push the left wall by a force *F*_{1} and the right wall by a force *F*_{2}.

(a) *F*_{1} = *F*_{2}

(b) *F*_{1} > *F*_{2}

(c) *F*_{1} < *F*_{2}

(d) the information is insufficient to know the relation between *F*_{1} and *F*_{2}

#### Answer:

(b) *F*_{1} > *F*_{2}

When the box is accelerated towards right, the water in the box experiences a pseudo force (*ma*) towards left, where *m* is the mass of water. So, the force *F*_{1}_{ }exerted by the water on the the left wall of the box is greater.

#### Page No 272:

#### Question 18:

Water enters through end *A* with a speed *v*_{1} and leaves through end *B* with a speed *v*_{2} of a cylindrical tube AB. The tube is always completely filled with water. In case *I* the tube is horizontal, in case *II* it is vertical with the end *A* upward and in case *III* it is vertical with the end *B* upward. We have *v*_{1} = *v*_{2} for

(a) case *I*

(b) case *II*

(c) case *III*

(d) each case

#### Answer:

(d) each case

This happens in accordance with the equation of continuity.

As the area of the cross section of cylindrical tube AB is constant, the velocity of water will also be the same. The equation is derived from the principle of conservation of mass and it is true for every case, i.e., when the tube is either horizontal or vertical.

#### Page No 272:

#### Question 19:

Bernoulli theorem is based on conservation of

(a) momentum

(b) mass

(c) energy

(d) angular momentum

#### Answer:

(c) energy

The principle behind the Bernoulli theorem is the law of conservation of energy. It states that energy can be neither created nor destroyed; it merely changes from one form to another.

#### Question 20:

Water is flowing through a long horizontal tube. Let *P _{A}* and

*P*be the pressures at two points

_{B}*A*and

*B*of the tube.

(a)

*P*must be equal to

_{A}*P*.

_{B}(b)

*P*must be greater than

_{A}*P*.

_{B}(c)

*P*must be smaller than

_{A}*P*.

_{B}(d)

*P*=

_{A}*P*only if the cross-sectional area at

_{B}*A*and

*B*are equal.

#### Answer:

(d) *P*_{A} = *P*_{B} because the cross-sectional areas at A and B are equal.

According to Bernoulli's theorem, pressures at points *A* and *B* of the horizontal tube will be equal if water has the same velocity at these points.

Also, according to the equation of continuity, velocity at points *A* and *B *will be equal only if the cross-sectional areas at *A* and *B* are equal.

So, *P _{A}* =

*P*only if the cross-sectional areas at

_{B}*A*and

*B*are equal.

#### Question 21:

Water and mercury are filled in two cylindrical vessels up to same height. Both vessels have a hole in the wall near the bottom. The velocity of water and mercury coming out of the holes are *v*_{1} and *v*_{2} respectively.

(a) *v*_{1} = *v*_{2}

(b) *v*_{1} = 13.6 *v*_{2}

(c) *v*_{1} = *v*_{2}/13.6

(d) ${v}_{1}=\sqrt{13.6}{v}_{2}$

#### Answer:

(a) *v*_{1} = *v*_{2}

The velocity of efflux does not depend on the density of the liquid. It only depends on the height *h* (given same in the question) and acceleration due to gravity *g* (constant value here).

${v}_{1}={v}_{2}=v=\sqrt{2gh}$

#### Page No 272:

#### Question 22:

A large cylindrical tank has a hole of area *A* at its bottom. Water is poured in the tank by a tube of equal cross-sectional area *A* ejecting water at the speed *v*.

(a) The water level in the tank will keep on rising

(b) No water can be stored in the tank

(c) The water level will rise to a height *v*^{2}/2*g* and then stop

(d) The water level will oscillate

#### Answer:

(c) The water level will rise to a height *v*^{2}/2*g* and then stop.

From the principle of continuity and Bernoulli's equation, â€‹we have:

${v}^{2}=2gh\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow h=\frac{{v}^{2}}{2g}$

So, *h* is the maximum height up to which the water level will rise if the water is ejected at a speed *v.*

#### Question 1:

A solid floats in a liquid in a partially dipped position.

(a) The solid exerts a force equal to its weight on the liquid.

(b) The liquid exerts a force of buoyancy on the solid which is equal to the weight of the solid.

(c) The weight of the displaced liquid equals the weight of the solid.

(d) The weight of the dipped part of the solid is equal to the weight of the displaced liquid.

#### Answer:

(a) The solid exerts a force equal to its weight on the liquid.

(b) The liquid exerts a force of buoyancy on the solid which is equal to the weight of the solid.

(c) The weight of the displaced liquid equals the weight of the solid.

Force exerted by any solid on a liquid = *F = mg = W* = Weight of the solid

According to Archimedes' principle, any object, wholly or partially immersed in a fluid, is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.

Also, any floating object displaces its own weight of fluid. Thus, we can say that the weight of the object is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced.

#### Question 1:

The surface of water in a water tank on the top of a house is 4 m above the tap level. Find the pressure of water at the tap when the tap is closed. Is it necessary to specify that the tap is closed?

#### Answer:

Given:

Height of the water tank above the tap level, *h* = 4 m

Acceleration due to gravity, *g* = 10 m/s^{2}

Density of water, *ρ* = 10^{3} kg/m^{3}

When the tap is closed, the pressure of the water in the tap is

*P* = *hρg*

On substituting the respective values in the formula, we get:

*P *= 4 × 10^{3} × 10

= 40,000 N/m^{2}

It is necessary to specify that the tap is closed because if the tap is open, then the pressure gradually decreases as *h* decreases and also because the pressure in the tap is atmospheric.

#### Question 2:

The heights of mercury surfaces in the two arms of the manometer shown in figure are 2 cm and 8 cm.

Atmospheric pressure = 1.01 × 10^{5} N^{−2}. Find (a) the pressure of the gas in the cylinder and (b) the pressure of mercury at the bottom of the U tube.

Figure

#### Answer:

(*a*) Given:

Height of the first arm, *h*_{1} = 8 cm

Height of the second arm, *h*_{2} = 2 cm

Density of mercury, *ρ*_{Hg} = 13.6 gm/cc

Atmospheric pressure, *p*_{a} = 1.01 × 10^{5} N/m^{2} = 1.01 × 10^{6} dyn/cm^{2}

Now,

Let *p*_{g} be the pressure of the gas.

If we consider both limbs, then the pressure at the bottom of the tube will be the same.

According to the figure, we have:

${p}_{g}+{\rho}_{\mathrm{H}g}\times {h}_{2}\times g={p}_{a}+{\mathrm{\rho}}_{\mathrm{Hg}}\times {h}_{1}\times g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {p}_{g}={p}_{a}+{\mathrm{\rho}}_{\mathrm{H}g}\times g({h}_{1}-{h}_{2})\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=1.01\times {10}^{6}+13.6\times 980\times (8-2)\mathrm{dyn}/{\mathrm{cm}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=(1.01\times {10}^{6}+13.6\times 980\times 6)\mathrm{dyn}/{\mathrm{cm}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=1.09\times {10}^{5}\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{m}}^{2}$

(*b*) Pressure of the mercury at the bottom of the U-tube:

*p*_{Hg} = *p*a + *ρ*_{Hg}× *h*_{1} × g

$=1.01\times {10}^{6}+13.6\times 8\times 980\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=1.12\times {10}^{5}\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{m}}^{2}$

#### Question 3:

The area of cross section of the wider tube shown in figure is 900 cm^{2}. If the boy standing on the piston weighs 45 kg, find the difference in the levels of water in the two tubes.

Figure

#### Answer:

Given:

Area of the wider tube, *A* = 900 cm^{2}

Weight of the boy, *m* = 45 kg

Density of water, $\rho $ = 10^{3 }kgm^{−3}

Let *h* be the difference in the levels of water in the tubes and *p*_{a} be the atmospheric pressure.

As per the figure, we have:

${p}_{a}\mathit{+}h\rho g\mathit{=}{p}_{a}\mathit{+}\frac{mg}{A}$

$\Rightarrow h\rho g\mathit{=}\frac{mg}{A}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow h\mathit{=}\frac{m}{\rho A}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow h=\frac{m}{1000\times \mathrm{A}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{45}{1000\times 900\times {10}^{-4}}=\frac{1}{2}\mathrm{m}=50\mathrm{cm}$

#### Question 4:

A glass full of water has a bottom of area 20 cm^{2}, top of area 20 cm^{2}, height 20 cm and volume half a litre.

(a) Find the force exerted by the water on the bottom.

(b) Considering the equilibrium of the water, find the resultant force exerted by the sides of the glass on the water. Atmospheric pressure = 1.0 × 10^{5} N m^{−2}. Density of water 1000 kg m^{−2} and *g* = 10 m s^{−2}.

Figure

#### Answer:

Given:

$\mathrm{Atmospheric}\mathrm{pressure},{p}_{\mathrm{a}}=1.0\times {10}^{5}\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{m}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Density}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{water},{\rho}_{W}={10}^{3}\mathrm{kg}/{\mathrm{m}}^{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Acceleration}\mathrm{due}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{gravity},g=10\mathrm{m}/{\mathrm{s}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Volume}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{water},V=500\mathrm{mL}\approx 500\mathrm{g}\approx 0.5\mathrm{kg}$

Area of the top of the glass, *A = *20* *m^{2}

Height of the glass, *h = *20 cmâ€‹

(a) Force exerted on the bottom of the glass = Atmospheric force + Force due to cylindrical water column or glass

$={p}_{\mathrm{a}}\times A+A\times h\times {\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}\times g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=A\left({\rho}_{a}+h{\rho}_{w}g\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=20\times {10}^{-4}\left({10}^{5}+20\times {10}^{-2}\times {10}^{3}\times 10\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=204\mathrm{N}$

(b) Let* F*_{â€‹s }be the force exerted by the sides of the glass. Now, from the free body diagram of water inside the glass, we can find out the resultant force exerted by the sides of the glass.

Thus, we have:

${\mathrm{p}}_{\mathrm{a}}\times A+mg=A\times h\times {\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}\times g+{F}_{\mathrm{s}}+{\mathrm{p}}_{\mathrm{a}}\times A\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow mg=A\times h\times {\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}\times g+{F}_{\mathrm{s}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 0.5\times 1=20\times {10}^{-4}\times 20\times {10}^{-2}\times {10}^{-3}\times 10+{F}_{\mathrm{s}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {F}_{s}=5-4=1\mathrm{N}\left(\mathrm{upward}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

#### Question 5:

Suppose the glass of the previous problem is covered by a jar and the air inside the jar is completely pumped out. (a) What will be the answers to the problem? (b) Show that the answers do not change if a glass of different shape is used provided the height, the bottom area and the volume are unchanged.

#### Answer:

When the glass is covered by a jar and the air is pumped out of the jar, atmospheric pressure has no effect on the glass.

(*a*) Force exerted on the bottom:

$\left(h{\mathrm{\rho}}_{\mathrm{w}}g\right)\times A$

$=\left(20\times {10}^{-2}\times {10}^{3}\times 10\right)20\times {10}^{-4}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=4\mathrm{N}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\left(b\right)mg=h\times {\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}\times g\times A+{F}_{\mathrm{s}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {F}_{\mathrm{s}}=5-4=1\mathrm{N}$

(*c*) If we use a glass of different shape with same volume, height and area, then there will not be any change in the answer.

#### Question 6:

If water be used to construct a barometer, what would be the height of water column at standard atmospheric pressure (76 cm of mercury)?

#### Answer:

Case: When water is used in a barometer instead of mercury

Pressure exerted by 76 cm of mercury column,* P* = 76 × 13.6 × *g* dyn/cm^{2}

Density of water, ${\rho}_{w}$ = 10^{3} kg/m^{3}

Let* h* be the height of the water column

$\because P=h{\rho}_{w}g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore 76\times 13.6\times g=h\times {\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}\times g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow h=\frac{76\times 13.6}{1}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow h=1033.6\mathrm{cm}$

#### Question 2:

The weight of an empty balloon on a spring balance is *W*_{1}. The weight becomes *W*_{2} when the balloon is filled with air. Let the weight of the air itself be *w*. Neglect the thickness of the balloon when it is filled with air. Also neglect the difference in the densities of air inside and outside the balloon.

(a) *W*_{2} = *W*_{1}

(b) *W*_{2} = *W*_{1} + *w*

(c) *W*_{2} < *W*_{1} + *w*

(d) *W*_{2} > *W*_{1}

#### Answer:

(a) *W*_{2} = *W*_{1}

(c) *W*_{2} < *W*_{1} + *w*

According to the question, the density of air inside and outside the balloon is the same. So, the weight *w* of air inside the balloon is equal to the weight of displaced air. Thus, the spring balance will not register any difference because the balloon will experience buoyant force equal to *w* that cancels out the weight of the added air.

#### Question 3:

A solid is completely immersed in a liquid. The force exerted by the liquid on the solid will

(a) increase if it is pushed deeper inside the liquid

(b) change if its orientation is changed

(c) decrease if it is taken partially out of the liquid

(d) be in the vertically upward direction.

#### Answer:

(c) decrease if it is taken partially out of the liquid

(d) be in the vertically upward direction.

The force exerted by the liquid on the solid is the vertically upward force (buoyant force) that opposes the weight of the immersed solid.â€‹ As more and more volume of the solid is immersed in the liquid, the buoyant force increases.

Buoyant force depends on the weight of the displaced liquid. So, maximum upward buoyant force acts on the solid when it is completely immersed in the liquid. It decreases if the solid is taken partially out of the liquid. Once the object is immersed in the liquid, then pushing it further in the liquid does not increase the buoyant force.

#### Question 4:

A closed vessel is half filled with water. There is a hole near the top of the vessel and air is pumped out from this hole.

(a) The water level will rise up in the vessel.

(b) The pressure at the surface of the water will decrease

(c) The force by the water on the bottom of the vessel will decrease

(d) The density of the liquid will decrease

#### Answer:

(b) The pressure at the surface of the water will decrease.

(c) The force by the water on the bottom of the vessel will decrease.

As air is pumped out of the hole, there is a decrease in the atmospheric pressure above the water surface in the vessel. Due to this, pressure at the surface of the water decreases. Thus, the force exerted by the water on the bottom of the vessel also decreases.

#### Question 5:

In a streamline flow,

(a) the speed of a particle always remains same

(b) the velocity of a particle always remains same

(c) the kinetic energies of all the particles arriving at a given point are the same

(d) the momenta of all the particles arriving at a given point are the same

#### Answer:

(c) the kinetic energies of all the particles arriving at a given point are the same

(d) the momenta of all the particles arriving at a given point are the same

In a streamline flow, every fluid particle arriving at a given point has the same velocity *v.* Thus, the kinetic energies ($\frac{1}{2}m{v}^{2}$ ) and momenta (*mv*) of all particles arriving at a given point are the same, as the mass of a particle is constant.

#### Question 6:

Water flows through two identical tubes *A* and *B*. A volume *V*_{0} of water passes through the tube *A* and 2 *V*_{0}_{ }through *B* in a given time. Which of the following may be correct?

(a) Flow in both the tubes are steady.

(b) Flow in both the tubes are turbulent.

(c) Flow is steady in *A* but turbulent in *B*.

(d) Flow is steady in *B* but turbulent in *A*.

#### Answer:

(a) Flow in both the tubes are steady.

(b) Flow in both the tubes are turbulent.

(c) Flow is steady in *A* but turbulent in *B*.

In a steady flow, the velocity of liquid particles reaching a particular point is the same at all times, but if the liquid is pushed in the tube at a rapid rate, i.e., if the flow rate increases, then the flow may become turbulent. Here, the flow rate is the volume of fluid per unit time per unit area flowing past a point.

Large volume of water passes through tube *B* compared to tube *A. *Thus, the flow rate is greater in tube *B* than in tube *A*. So, if the flow is turbulent in *A*, then the flow in *B* cannot be steady. Therefore, the first three options are possible.

#### Page No 273:

#### Question 7:

Water is flowing in streamline motion through a tube with its axis horizontal. Consider two points *A* and *B* in the tube at the same horizontal level.

(a) The pressures at *A* and *B* are equal for any shape of the tube.

(b) The pressures are never equal.

(c) The pressures are equal if the tube has a uniform cross section.

(d) The pressures may be equal even if the tube has a nonuniform cross section.

#### Answer:

(c) The pressures are equal if the tube has a uniform cross section.

(d) The pressures may be equal even if the tube has a nonuniform cross section.

In streamline flow in a tube, every particle of the liquid follows the path of its preceding particle and the velocity of all particles crossing a particular point is the same. However, the velocity of the particles at different points in their path may not necessarily be the same. Thus, by applying Bernoulli's theorem and equation of continuity, we can say that if the tube has a uniform cross section, the pressures will be equal; and if the tube has a non-uniform cross section, the pressures may or may not be equal.

#### Question 8:

There is a small hole near the bottom of an open tank filled with a liquid. The speed of the water ejected does not depend on

(a) area of the hole

(b) density of the liquid

(c) height of the liquid from the hole

(d) acceleration due to gravity

#### Answer:

(a) area of the hole

(b) density of the liquid

The emergent speed *v* of the liquid flowing from the hole in the bottom of the tank is given by

$v=\sqrt{2gh}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

Here, *g* is acceleration due to gravity and *h* is height of the liquid from the hole.

Thus, it is clear from the above relation that the speed of the liquid depends on the height of the liquid from the hole and on the acceleration due to gravity. It does not depend on the area of the hole and the density of the liquid.

#### Question 7:

Find the force exerted by the water on a 2 m^{2} plane surface of a large stone placed at the bottom of a sea 500 m deep. Does the force depend on the orientation of the surface?

#### Answer:

Given:

Depth of the stone from the water surface, *h* = 500 m

Area of the plane surface of the large stone, *A *= 2 m^{2}

Density of water, *ρ*_{w} = 10^{3 }kgm^{−3}

^{â€‹}Force (*F*) is given by

$F=P\times A=\left(h{\rho}_{w}\times g\right)A\left(P=\mathrm{Pressure}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow F=\left(500\times {10}^{3}\times 10\right)\times 2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}={10}^{7}\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{m}}^{2}$

The force does not depend on the orientation of the rock when the surface area of the stone remains the same.

#### Question 8:

Water is filled in a rectangular tank of size 3 m × 2 m × 1 m. (a) Find the total force exerted by the water on the bottom surface on the tank. (b) Consider a vertical side of area 2 m × 1 m. Take a horizontal strip of width δ*x* metre in this side, situated at a depth of *x* metre from the surface of water. Find the force by the water on this strip. (c) Find the torque of the force calculate in part (b) about the bottom edge of this side.

(d) Find the total force by the water on this side.

(e) Find the total torque by the water on the side about the bottom edge. Neglect the atmospheric pressure and take *g* = 10 ms^{−2}.

#### Answer:

Dimensions of the rectangular tank:

Length, *l* = 3 m

Breadth, *b* = 2 m

Height, *h = *1 m

Area of the bottom surface of the tank, *A* = $2\times 3=6{\mathrm{m}}^{2}$

Density of water, *ρ*_{w} = 1000 kgm^{−3}

(a) Total force exerted by water on the bottom surface of the tank:

$\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}f=Ah{\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=6\times 1\times {10}^{3}\times 10\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=6\times {10}^{4}=60,000\mathrm{N}$

(b) Force exerted by water on the strip of width *δx**:*

$\mathrm{d}f=p\times A=\left(x{\rho}_{w}g\right)\times \mathrm{A}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=x\times {10}^{3}\times 10\times 2\times \delta x\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=20,000x\delta x\mathrm{N}$

(c) Inside the tank, the water force acts in every direction due to adhesion. Therefore, torque is given by

$di=F\times r\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=20,000\times \mathrm{\delta}x(1-x)\mathrm{N}$

(d) Total force exerted by water on the side about the bottom edge $\left(F\right)$:

$F={\int}_{0}^{1}20,000x\delta x\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow F=20,000{\left[\frac{{x}^{2}}{2}\right]}_{0}^{1}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=10,000\mathrm{N}$

(e) Torque by the water on the side $\left(\tau \right)$:

$\tau =20,000\times {\int}_{0}^{1}x\delta x\left(1-x\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=20,000{\left[\frac{{x}^{2}}{2}-\frac{{x}^{3}}{3}\right]}_{0}^{1}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=20,000\times \left[\frac{1}{2}-\frac{1}{3}\right]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{20,000}{6}\mathrm{Nm}=\frac{10000}{3}\mathrm{Nm}$

#### Question 9:

An ornament weighing 36 g in air, weighs only 34 g in water. Assuming that some copper is mixed with gold to prepare the ornament, find the amount of copper in it. Specific gravity of gold is 19.3 and that of copper is 8.9.

#### Answer:

Given:

Weight of the ornament in air, *m*_{1}*a* = 36 gm

Weight of the ornament in water, *m*_{2}*w* = 34 gm

Specific gravity (density) of gold, *ρ*_{Au} = 19.3 gm/cc

Specific gravity (density) of copper, *ρ*_{Cu} = 8.9 gm/cc

Using Archimedes' principle, we get:

Loss of weight = Weight of displaced water

= 36 − 34

= 2 gm

Let *m*_{Au} and *m*_{Cu} be the masses of gold and copper, respectively.

Now, the mass of the ornament $\left({m}_{c}\right)$ will be

*m*_{c} = *m*_{Au} + *m*_{Cu}= 36 gm ...(i)

Now, let the volume of the ornament in cm be *V*.

$\mathrm{Thus},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{have}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}V\times {\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}\times g=2\times g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow ({v}_{\mathrm{Au}}+{v}_{\mathrm{Cu}})\times {\mathrm{\rho}}_{w}\times g=2\times g\left({\rho}_{w}=\mathrm{Density}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{water}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(\frac{{m}_{Au}}{{\rho}_{\mathrm{Au}}}+\frac{{m}_{Cu}}{{\rho}_{\mathrm{Cu}}}\right){\rho}_{w}\times g=2\times g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(\frac{{m}_{Au}}{19.3}+\frac{{m}_{Cu}}{8.9}\right)\times 1=2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 8.9{m}_{\mathrm{Au}}+19.3{m}_{\mathrm{Cu}}=2\times 19.3\times 8.9\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=343.54...\left(\mathrm{ii}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{From}\left(\mathrm{i}\right)\mathrm{and}\left(\mathrm{ii}\right),\mathrm{we}\mathrm{get}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}8.9({m}_{\mathrm{Au}}+{m}_{\mathrm{Cu}})=8.9\times 36\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 8.9{m}_{\mathrm{Au}}+8.9{m}_{\mathrm{Cu}}=320.40...\left(\mathrm{iii}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{From}\left(\mathrm{ii}\right)\left(\mathrm{iii}\right),\mathrm{we}\mathrm{get}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}10.4{m}_{\mathrm{Cu}}=23.14\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {m}_{\mathrm{Cu}}=2.225\mathrm{gm}$

Therefore, the amount of copper present in the ornament is 2.2 gm.

#### Answer:

Given:

Mass of the metal piece, *m* =160 gm = 160 × 10^{−3} kg

Density of the metal piece, *ρ*_{m} = 8000 kg/m^{3}

Density of the water, *ρ*_{w} = 1000 kg/m^{3}

^{â€‹}Let *R *be the normal reaction and *U* be the upward thrust.

From the diagram, we have:

*mg* = *U* + *R*

$\Rightarrow $*R* = *mg* −*Vρ*_{w}*g* [*U* = *Vρ*_{w}*g*]

$\Rightarrow R=mg-\frac{m}{{\rho}_{m}}\times {\rho}_{w}\times g$

^{â€‹3}

(a) Let

*V*

_{1}be the volume of the boat inside the water. It is equal to the volume of the water displaced in m

^{3}.

As the weight of the boat is balanced by the buoyant force, we have:

$mg={V}_{1}\times {\mathrm{\rho}}_{w}\times g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 50={V}_{1}\times {10}^{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {V}_{1}=\frac{5}{100}=0.05{\mathrm{m}}^{3}$

(b) Let

#### Question 13:

A cubical block of ice floating in water has to support a metal piece weighing 0.5 kg. Water can be the minimum edge of the block so that it does not sink in water? Specific gravity of ice = 0.9.

#### Answer:

Given:

Specific gravity of ice, *ρ*_{ice} = 0.9 gm/cc

Weight of the metal piece, *m* = 5 kg

Density of water, ${\rho}_{w}$ = 10^{3} kg/m^{3}^{â€‹}

Let *x* be the minimum edge of the ice block in cm.

We have:

*mg* + *W*_{ice} = *U*

Here,

*U* = Upward thrust

W_{ice} = Weight of the ice

$\mathrm{Thus},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{have}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}0.5\times g+{x}^{3}\times {\rho}_{ice}\times g={x}^{3}\times {\rho}_{w}\times g\left[\mathrm{Volume}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{liquid}\mathrm{displaced}={x}^{3}\right]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 0.5\times {10}^{3}+{x}^{3}\times (0.9)={x}^{3}\times 1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{3}\times (0.1)=(0.5)\times {10}^{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{3}=5\times {10}^{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=17.09\mathrm{cm}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=17\mathrm{cm}$

#### Answer:

Given:

Specific gravity of water, ${\rho}_{W}$ = 1 gm/cc

Specific gravity of ice, *ρ*_{ice} = 0.9 gm/cc

Specific gravity of kerosene oil, *ρ*_{k} = 0.8 gm/cc

Now,

*V*_{â€‹}_{ice }= *V*_{k} + *V*_{w}

Here,

*V*_{k} = Volume of ice inside kerosene oil

*V*_{w} = Volume of ice inside water

*V*_{ice}_{ }= Volume of ice

Thus, we have:

#### Question 15:

A cubical box is to be constructed with iron sheets 1 mm in thickness. What can be the minimum value of the external edge so that the cube does not sink in water? Density of iron = 8000 kg m^{−3} and density of water = 1000 kg m^{−3}.

#### Answer:

Given:

Density of iron, *ρ*_{I} = 8000 kg/m^{3} = 8 gm/u

Density of water, *ρ*_{w} = 1000 kg/m^{3} = 1 gm/u

Let *x* be the external edge of iron.

According to Archemedes' principle,

Weight displaced = Upward thrust

∴ *w* = *u*

For the given condition, we have:

Weight of the box = Buoyant force

⇒ *V*_{1}${\rho}_{I}$*g** *= *vρ*_{w}*g*

⇒ (*x*^{2} × (0.1) × 6) × 8 = *x*^{3} × 1 [Volume of iron = *v*_{1} = 6 times the volume of each sheet]

⇒ *x* = 4.8 cm

A cubical metal block of edge 12 cm floats in mercury with one fifth of the height inside the mercury. Water in it. Find the height of the water column to be poured.

Specific gravity of mercury = 13.6.

#### Answer:

Given:

Length of the edge of the metal block, *x* = 12 cm

Specific gravity of mercury, ${\rho}_{Hg}$= 13.6 gm/cc

It is given that $\frac{1}{5}$th of the cubical block is inside mercury initially.

Let *${\rho}_{b}$* be the density of the block in gm/cc.

$\therefore (x{)}^{3}\times {\rho}_{b}\times g=(x{)}^{2}\times \left(\frac{x}{5}\right)\times {\rho}_{\mathrm{Hg}}\times g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (12{)}^{3}\times {\rho}_{b}\times g=(12{)}^{2}\times \frac{12}{5}\times 13.6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {\rho}_{b}=\frac{13.6}{5}\mathrm{gm}/\mathrm{cc}$

Given:

Radius of the sphere,* r* = 5 cm

Mass of the maximum load, *m* = 0.1 kg

Let the weight of the sphere be *W*_{1} and the weight of the load be *W*_{2}.

#### Question 22:

A cylindrical object of outer diameter 20 cm and mass 2 kg floats in water with its axis vertical. If it is slightly depressed and then released, find the time period of the resulting simple harmonic motion of the object.

#### Answer:

Given:

Outer diameter of the cylindrical object,* d* = 20 cm

∴ Radius$,r=\frac{d}{2}=10\mathrm{cm}$

Mass of the object, *m* = 2 kg

When the object is depressed into water, the net unbalanced force causes simple harmonic motion.

Let *x* be the displacement of the block from the equilibrium position.

Now,

$\mathrm{Driving}\mathrm{force}=U=V{\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Here},\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}U\mathrm{is}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{upward}\mathrm{thrust}.\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}V\mathit{}\mathrm{is}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{volume}.\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}\mathit{}\mathrm{is}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{density}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{water}.\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Thus},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{have}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}ma=\mathrm{\pi}{r}^{2}\left(x\right)\times {\rho}_{\mathrm{w}}g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}a\mathit{=}\frac{\pi {r}^{\mathit{2}}{\rho}_{w}\mathit{9}x}{\mathit{2}\mathit{\times}{\mathit{10}}^{\mathit{3}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{T}=2\mathrm{\pi}\sqrt{\frac{\mathrm{Displacement}}{\mathrm{Acceleration}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=2\mathrm{\pi}\sqrt{\frac{\left(x\right)\times 2\times {10}^{3}}{\left(\mathrm{\pi}{r}^{2}{\mathrm{\rho}}_{w}g\left(x\right)\right)}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=2\mathrm{\pi}\sqrt{\frac{2\times {10}^{3}}{\mathrm{\pi}\times (10{)}^{2}\times 1\times 10}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=2\mathrm{\pi}\sqrt{\frac{2}{\mathrm{\pi}\times 10}}=0.5\mathrm{s}$

(a) Find the elongation of the spring in equilibrium condition. (b) If the object is slightly depressed and released, find the time period of resulting oscillations of the object. The spring constant = 500 N m^{−1}.

Figure

#### Answer:

Given:

Diameter of the cylindrical object, *d* = 10 cm

∴ Radius, *r* = 5 cm

Height of the object, *h* = 20 cm

Density of the object, ρ_{b} = 8000 kg/m^{3} = 8 gm/cc

Density of water, ρ_{w} = 1000 kg/m^{3}

Spring constant, *k* = 500 N/m = 500 × 10^{3} dyn/cm

(a) Now,

*F* + *U* = *mg* [*F* = *kx*]

Here, *U* is the upward thrust and *x *is the small displacement from the equilibrium position.

*kx* + *Vρ*_{w}g = *mg*

$\Rightarrow 500\times {10}^{3}\times \left(x\right)+\left(\mathrm{\pi}{r}^{2}\right)\times \left(\frac{h}{2}\right)\times 1\times 1000=\mathrm{\pi}{r}^{2}\times h\times {\mathrm{\rho}}_{b}\times 1000\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 500\times {10}^{3}\times \left(x\right)=\mathrm{\pi}{r}^{2}\times h\times 1000\left({\rho}_{\mathrm{b}}-\frac{1}{2}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\mathrm{\pi}\times (5{)}^{2}\times 20\times 1000\left({\rho}_{\mathrm{b}}-\frac{1}{2}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 50x=\mathrm{\pi}\times 25\times 2\times \left({\rho}_{\mathrm{b}}-\frac{1}{2}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}x=\mathrm{\pi}(8-0.5)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{or},x=\mathrm{\pi}\times 7.5=23.5\mathrm{cm}$

(b) We know that *X* is the displacement of the block from the equilibrium position.

#### Question 24:

A wooden block of mass 0.5 kg and density 800 kg m^{−3} is fastened to the free end of a vertical spring of spring constant 50 N m^{−1} fixed at the bottom. If the entire system is completely immersed in water, find (a) the elongation (or compression) of the spring in equilibrium and (b) the time-period of vertical oscillations of the block when it is slightly depressed and released.

#### Answer:

Given:

Mass of the wooden block, *m* = 5 kg

Density of the block, *ρ* = 800 kg/m^{3}

Spring constant, *k* = 50 N/m

Density of water, *ρ*_{w} = 1000 kg/m^{3}

(a) Using the free body diagram, we get:

*mg* = *kx* + *V*ρ_{w}*g* (Here, *Vρ*_{w}*g* > *mg*. So, there will be some elongation.]

*$\Rightarrow (0.5)\times (10+50\times (x\left)\right)=\left(\frac{0.5}{800}\right)\times {10}^{3}\times \left(10\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 50x=\left(0.5\right)\times \left(10\right)\times \left(\left(\frac{10}{8}\right)-1\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 50x=\left(\frac{5}{4}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=2.5\mathrm{cm}$*

(b) As the system is inside the water, the unbalance force will be the driving force, which is *kx* for* *SHM.

Hence, there will be no change in the buoyant force.

$\therefore ma=kx\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow a=kx/m\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {w}^{2}x=kx/m\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {\left(\frac{2p}{\mathrm{T}}\right)}^{2}=k/m\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow T=2\mathrm{\pi}\sqrt{\frac{m}{k}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=2\mathrm{\pi}\times \sqrt{\left(\frac{0.5}{50}\right)}=\frac{\mathrm{\pi}}{5}\mathrm{s}$

#### Question 25:

A cube of ice of edge 4 cm is placed in an empty cylindrical glass of inner diameter 6 cm. Assume that the ice melts uniformly from each side so that it always retains its cubical shape. Remembering that ice is lighter than water, find the length of the edge of the ice cube at the instant it just leaves contact with the bottom of the glass.

#### Answer:

Let the length of the edge of the ice block when it just leaves contact with the bottom of the glass be *x *and the height of water after melting be *h*.

Given:

Inner diameter of the cylindrical glass = 6 cm

∴ Inner radius, *r* = 3 cm

Edge of the ice cube = 4 cm

$\mathrm{Weight}=\mathrm{Upward}\mathrm{thurst}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x{)}^{3}\times {\rho}_{\mathrm{ice}}\times g=(x{)}^{2}\times h\times {\mathrm{\rho}}_{\mathrm{w}}\times g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow h=(0.9)x$

Again, volume of the water left from the melting of the ice is given by

$(4{)}^{3}-(x{)}^{3}=\mathrm{\pi}\times (r{)}^{2}\times h-{x}^{2}h[\mathrm{Amount}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{water}=\mathrm{\rho}({r}_{2}-{x}_{2})h]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (4{)}^{3}-(\mathrm{x}{)}^{3}=\mathrm{\pi}\times (3{)}^{2}\times h-{x}^{2}h\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Putting}h=0.9x,\mathrm{we}\mathrm{get}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}(4{)}^{3}-(\mathrm{x}{)}^{3}=\mathrm{\pi}\times (3{)}^{2}\times (0.9)\mathrm{x}$

Also,

*p*_{a} = Atmospheric pressure

*A* = Area of cross section

At Deoprayag (Garwal, UP) river Alaknande mixes with the river Bhagirathi and becomes river Ganga. Suppose Alaknanda has a width of 12 m, Bhagirathi has a width of 8 m and Ganga has a width of 16 m. Assume that the depth of water is same in the three rivers, Let the average speed of water in Alaknanda be 20 km h^{−1} and in Bhagirathi be 16 km h^{−1}. Find the average speed of water in the river Ganga.

#### Answer:

Given:

Average speed of water in Alaknanda = 20 kmh^{−1}

Average speed of water in Bhagirathi = 16 kmh^{−1}

Width of Bhagirathi = 8 m

Width of Alaknanda = 12 m

Width of Ganga = 16 m

Now,

Volume of water discharged from Alaknanda + Volume of water discharged from Bhagirathi = Volume of water flow in Ganga

Let:

*d* = Depth of the three rivers

⇒*V*_{A} × *d* × 12 + *V*_{B} × *d* × 8 = *V*_{G} × *d* × 16

Here, *V*_{A}, *V*_{B}_{ }and *V*_{G} be the average speeds of water in Alaknanda, Bhagirathi and Ganga, respectively.

Using the equation of continuity, we get:

$20\times 12+16\times 8={V}_{\mathrm{G}}\times 16\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {V}_{\mathrm{G}}\times 16=368\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {V}_{\mathrm{G}}=\frac{368}{16}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=23\mathrm{km}/\mathrm{h}$

Separation between the cross sections at *A* and *B* = 15/16 cm

Speed of water at A, *v*_{A} = 25 cm/s

Speed of water at B, *v*_{B} = 50 cm/s

(c) By Bernoulli's equation, we get:

$\frac{1}{2}p{v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}+\mathrm{\rho}g{h}_{\mathrm{A}}+{P}_{\mathrm{A}}=\frac{1}{2}p{v}_{\mathrm{B}}^{2}+\mathrm{\rho}g{h}_{\mathrm{B}}+{P}_{\mathrm{B}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {P}_{\mathrm{A}}\mathit{-}{P}_{\mathit{B}}=\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)p\left({v}_{\mathrm{B}}^{2}-{v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}\right)+\rho g\left({h}_{\mathrm{B}}-{h}_{\mathrm{A}}\right)[{h}_{\mathrm{A}}-{h}_{\mathrm{B}}=\left(\frac{15}{16}\right)\mathrm{cm}]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {P}_{\mathit{A}}\mathit{-}{P}_{\mathrm{B}}=\frac{1}{2}(2500-625)-1000\times \frac{15}{16}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=0$

#### Question 30:

Suppose the tube in the previous problem is kept vertical with *B* upward. Water enters through B at the rate of 1 cm^{3} s^{−1}. Repeat parts (a), (b) and (c). Note that the speed decreases as the water falls down.

#### Answer:

Water enters through B at the rate of 1 cm^{3}s^{−1}.

(a) Speed of water at A, ${\overrightarrow{\mathrm{V}}}_{\mathrm{A}}=25\mathrm{cm}/\mathrm{s}$

(b) Speed of water at B, ${\overrightarrow{\mathrm{V}}}_{\mathrm{B}}=50\mathrm{cm}/\mathrm{s}$

(c) By Bernoulli's equation, we have:

$\frac{1}{2}p{v}_{A}^{2}+\rho g{h}_{A}+{P}_{A}=\frac{1}{2}\rho {{v}_{B}}^{2}+\rho g{h}_{B}+{P}_{B}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {P}_{\mathit{A}}\mathit{-}{P}_{\mathit{B}}=\frac{1}{2}\times 1\times 1875+\frac{1}{2}\times 1000\times \frac{15}{16}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=1875\mathrm{dyn}/{\mathrm{cm}}^{2}=188\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{m}}^{2}$

#### Question 31:

Water flows through a tube shown in figure. The area of cross section at *A* and *B* are 1 cm^{2}^{ }and 0.5 cm^{2} respectively. The height difference between *A* and *B* is 5 cm. If the speed of water at *A* is 10 cm s^{−1} find (a) the speed at *B* and (b) the difference in pressures at *A* and *B*.

Figure

#### Answer:

Given:

Difference in the heights of A and B = 5 cm

Area of cross section at A, *a*_{a} = 1 cm^{2}

Area of cross section at B, *a*_{b} = 0.5 cm^{2}

Speed of water at A, ${v}_{A}$ = 10 cms^{−1}

$\left(a\right)\mathrm{From}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{equation}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{continuity},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{have}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\overrightarrow{V}}_{\mathrm{A}}\times {a}_{\mathrm{A}}={\overrightarrow{V}}_{\mathrm{B}}\times {a}_{\mathrm{B}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 10\times 1={\overrightarrow{V}}_{\mathrm{B}}\times 0.5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {\overrightarrow{V}}_{\mathrm{B}}=20\mathrm{cm}/\mathrm{s}$

The required speed of water at cross section B is 20 cms^{−1}

$\left(b\right)\mathrm{From}\mathrm{Bernoulli}\text{'}\mathrm{s}\mathrm{equation},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{get}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{1}{2}\rho {v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}+\rho g{h}_{\mathrm{A}}+{P}_{\mathrm{A}}=\frac{1}{2}\rho {v}_{\mathrm{B}}^{2}+\rho g{h}_{\mathrm{A}}+{P}_{\mathrm{B}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {P}_{\mathrm{B}}-{P}_{\mathrm{A}}=\frac{1}{2}\rho \left({v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}-{v}_{\mathrm{B}}^{2}\right)+\rho g\left({h}_{\mathrm{A}}-{h}_{\mathrm{B}}\right)$

Here,

*P*_{A} and *P*_{B} are the pressures at A and B, respectively.

*h*_{A} and *h*_{B} are the heights of points A and B, respectively.

*ρ *is the density of the liquid.

On substituting the values, we have:

${P}_{B}-{P}_{A}=\frac{1}{2}\times 1(100-400)+1\times 1000(5.0)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=-150+5000=4850\mathrm{Dyne}/{\mathrm{cm}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=485\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{m}}^{2}$

Therefore, the required pressure difference at A and B is 485 N/m^{2}.

#### Question 32:

Water flows through a horizontal tube as shown in figure. If the difference of heights of water column in the vertical tubes is 2 cm, and the areas of cross section at *A* and *B* are 4 cm^{2} and 2 cm^{2} respectively, find the rate of flow of water across any section.

Figure

#### Answer:

Given:

Difference in the heights of water columns in vertical tubes = 2 cm

Area of cross section at A, *a*_{A} = 4 cm^{2}

Area of cross section at B, *a*_{B} = 2 cm^{2}

Now, let *v*_{A}_{ }and *v _{B}*

_{ }be the speeds of water at A and B, respectively.

From the equation of continuity, we have:

${v}_{A}{a}_{A}={v}_{B}\times {a}_{B}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {v}_{\mathrm{A}}\times 4={v}_{\mathrm{B}}\times 2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {v}_{\mathrm{B}}=2{v}_{\mathrm{A}}...\left(\mathrm{i}\right)$

From Bernoulli's equation, we have:

$\frac{1}{2}\rho {v}_{A}^{2}+\rho g{h}_{A}+{p}_{\mathrm{A}}=\frac{1}{2}\rho {v}_{\mathrm{B}}^{2}+\rho g{h}_{B}+{p}_{\mathrm{B}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{1}{2}\mathrm{\rho}{v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}+{p}_{\mathrm{A}}=\frac{1}{2}\mathrm{\rho}{v}_{\mathrm{B}}^{2}+{p}_{\mathrm{B}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {p}_{\mathrm{A}}-{p}_{\mathrm{B}}=\frac{1}{2}\mathrm{\rho}\left({v}_{\mathrm{B}}^{2}-{v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}\right)$

Here,

*p*

_{A}and

*p*

_{B}are the pressures at A and B, respectively.

*h*

_{A}and

*h*

_{B}are the heights of water columns at point A and B, respectively.

*ρ*is the density of the liquid.

Thus, we have:

$\frac{1}{2}\times 1\times \left(4{v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}-{v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2\times 1\times 1000=\frac{1}{2}\times 1\times 3{v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}[{p}_{\mathrm{A}}-{p}_{\mathrm{B}}=2\mathrm{cm}=2\times 1\times 1000\mathrm{dyne}/{\mathrm{cm}}^{2}(\mathrm{water}\mathrm{column}\left)\right]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}=\sqrt{\frac{4000}{3}}=36.51\mathrm{cm}/\mathrm{s}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore \mathrm{Rate}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{flow}={v}_{A}{\mathrm{a}}_{\mathrm{A}}=36.51\times 4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=146{\mathrm{cm}}^{3}/\mathrm{s}$

Hence, the required rate of flow of water across any section is 146 cm

^{3}/s.

#### Question 33:

Water flows through the tube shown in figure. The areas of cross section of the wide and the narrow portions of the tube are 5 cm^{2} and 2 cm^{2} respectively. The rate of flow of water through the tube is 500 cm^{3} s^{−1}. Find the difference of mercury levels in the U-tube.

Figure

#### Answer:

Given:

Area of cross section of the wide portions of the tube, *a*_{a} = 5 cm^{2}

Area of cross section of the narrow portions of the tube, *a*_{b}= 2 cm^{2}

Now, let *v*_{a} and *v*_{b} be the speeds of water at A and B, respectively.

Rate of flow of water through the tube = 500 cm^{3}/s

$\Rightarrow {v}_{\mathrm{A}}=\left(\frac{500}{5}\right)=100\mathrm{cm}/\mathrm{s}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{From}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{equation}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{continuity},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{have}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{v}_{\mathrm{A}}{a}_{\mathrm{A}}={v}_{\mathrm{B}}{a}_{\mathrm{B}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{{v}_{\mathrm{A}}}{{v}_{\mathrm{B}}}=\frac{{a}_{\mathrm{B}}}{{a}_{\mathrm{A}}}=\frac{2}{5}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 5{v}_{\mathrm{A}}=2{v}_{\mathrm{B}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {v}_{\mathrm{B}}=\left(\frac{5}{2}\right){v}_{\mathrm{A}}...\left(\mathrm{i}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{From}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{Bernoulli}\text{'}\mathrm{s}\mathrm{equation},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{have}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{1}{2}\rho {v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}+\rho g{h}_{\mathrm{A}}+{p}_{\mathrm{A}}=\frac{1}{2}\rho {v}_{\mathrm{B}}^{2}+\rho g{h}_{\mathrm{B}}+{p}_{\mathrm{B}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {p}_{\mathrm{A}}-{p}_{\mathrm{B}}=\frac{1}{2}\left[p\left({v}_{\mathrm{B}}^{2}-{v}_{\mathrm{A}}^{2}\right)\right]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

Here,

*ρ *is the density of the fluid.

*p*_{A} and *p*_{B} are the pressures at A and B.

*h *is the difference of the mercury levels in the U-tube.

$\mathrm{Now},\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}h\times 13.6\times 980=\frac{1}{2}\times 1\times \frac{21}{4}(100{)}^{2}[\mathrm{Using}\left(\mathrm{i}\right)]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow h=\frac{21\times (100{)}^{2}}{2\times 13.6\times 980\times 4}[\because {p}_{\mathrm{A}}-{p}_{\mathrm{B}}]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=1.969\mathrm{cm}$

Therefore, the required difference is 1.969 cm.

#### Question 34:

Water leaks out from an open tank through a hole of area 2 mm^{2} in the bottom. Suppose water is filled up to a height of 80 cm and the area of cross section of the tanks is 0.4 m^{2}. The pressure at the open surface and at the hole are equal to the atmospheric pressure. Neglect the small velocity of the water near the open surface in the tank. (a) Find the initial speed of water coming out of the hole. (b) Find the speed of water coming out when half of water has leaked out. (c) Find the volume of eater leaked out using a time interval *dt* after the height remained is *h*. Thus find the decrease in height *dh* in terms of *h* and *dt*.

(d) From the result of park (c) find the time required for half of the water to leak out.

#### Answer:

Given:

Area of the hole of the water tank = 2 mm^{2}

Height of filled water, *h* = 80 cm

Area of the cross-section of the tanks, *A* = 0.4 m^{2}

Acceleration due to gravity,* g* = 9.8 ms^{$-2$}

Pressure at the open surface and at the hole is equal to atmospheric pressure.

(a) Velocity of water:

*v*$=\sqrt{2gh}$

$=\sqrt{2\times 10\times 0.80}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=4\mathrm{m}/\mathrm{sec}$

(b) Velocity of water when the tank is half-filled and *h* $\mathrm{is}\frac{80}{2},\mathrm{i}.\mathrm{e}.,40\mathrm{cm}:$

$=\sqrt{2\times 10\times 0.40}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\sqrt{8}\mathrm{m}/\mathrm{sec}$

(c) Volume:

$\mathrm{Volume}=Ah=Av\mathrm{dt}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=A\mathit{\times}\sqrt{2gh}dt\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathit{=}\left(\mathit{2}\mathit{}{\mathit{mm}}^{\mathit{2}}\right)\sqrt{2gh}dt$

Volume of the tank = *Ah* = *V* (say)

$\mathrm{i}.\mathrm{e}.,\frac{d\mathrm{V}}{dt}=A\frac{dh}{dt}$

${a}_{1}{v}_{1}=A\frac{\mathrm{d}h}{\mathrm{d}t}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2\times {10}^{-6}\sqrt{2gh}=0.4\frac{\mathrm{d}h}{\mathrm{d}t}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \mathrm{d}h=5\times {10}^{-6}\sqrt{2gh}\mathrm{d}t$

$\left(d\right)\because dh=5\times {10}^{-6}\sqrt{2gh}dt\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore \frac{dh}{\sqrt{2gh}}=5\times {10}^{-6}dt$

On integrating, we get:

$5\times {10}^{-6}{\int}_{0}^{t}dt=\frac{1}{\sqrt{28}}{\int}_{0.8}^{0.4}\frac{d\mathrm{h}}{\sqrt{h}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=5\times {10}^{-6}\times t=\frac{1}{\sqrt{28}}\times 2{\left[{h}^{\frac{1}{2}}\right]}_{0.8}^{0.4}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=5\times {10}^{-6}\times t=\frac{1}{\sqrt{28}}\times 2{\left[{h}^{\frac{1}{2}}\right]}_{0.8}^{0.4}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow t=\frac{1}{\sqrt{20}}\times 2\times \left[(0.4{)}^{1/2}-(0.8{)}^{1/4}\right]\times \frac{1}{5\times {10}^{-6}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow t=\frac{1}{4.47}\times 2\times \frac{2}{3.16}\times \frac{1}{5\times {10}^{-6}}\times \frac{1}{3600}\mathrm{h}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=6.51\mathrm{h}$

#### Question 35:

Water level is maintained in a cylindrical vessel up to a fixed height *H*. The vessel is kept on a horizontal plane. At what height above the bottom should a hole be made in the vessel so that the water stream coming out of the hole strikes the horizontal plane at the greatest distance from the vessel.

Figure

#### Answer:

It is given that H is the height of the cylindrical vessel.

Now, let *h* be the height of the hole from the surface of the tank.

The velocity of water $\left(v\right)$ is given by

$v=\sqrt{2g(\mathrm{H}-h)}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Also},\mathrm{let}t\mathrm{be}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{time}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{flight}.\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Now},\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}t=\sqrt{\frac{2h}{g}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Let}x\mathrm{be}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{maximum}\mathrm{horizontal}\mathrm{distance}.\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore x=v\times t\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\sqrt{2g(\mathrm{H}-h)}\times \sqrt{\frac{2h}{g}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\sqrt{4(\mathrm{H}h-{h}^{2})}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

For *x* to be maximum,

$\frac{d}{dh}\left(\mathrm{H}h-{h}^{2}\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 0=\mathrm{H}-2h\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow h=\frac{\mathrm{H}}{2}$
