#### Question B.5:

36 km/h is same as

(a) 36 m/s

(b) 3.6 m/s

(c) 10 m/s

(d) 0.36 m/s

#### Answer:

(c) 10 m/s

Given: 36 km/h

Converting 36 km to m:

1km = 1000 m****

36 km = 36 $\times $ 1000 = 36000 m

Also, 1h = 60 min

1 min = 60 s

1 h = 60 $\times $ 60 = 3600 s

Hence,

$\frac{36000}{3600}\mathrm{m}/\mathrm{s}=10\mathrm{m}/\mathrm{s}$

#### Question B.6:

A car moves with a speed of 40 km/h for 15 minutes and then with a speed of 60 km/h for the next 15 minutes. The total distance covered by the car is

(a) 100 km

(b) 25 km

(c) 15 km

(d) 10 km

#### Answer:

(a) 100 km

Distance covered by car for first 15 mins = d_{1}_{ }= 40 km/h

Distance covered by car for next 15 mins = d_{2}_{ }= 60 km/h

Total distance travelled by car = d_{1} + d_{2}

= 40 km/h + 60 km/h

= 100 km/h

#### Question 3:

Given along-side is the distance-time graph of two cars A and B. Which of the car has more speed? Justify your answer.

Figure

#### Answer:

The line representing the distance covered by car A is steeper than that representing the distance covered by car B. Based on this, we can say that car A is travelling faster than car B.

The slope of the distance versus time plot on a graph is equal to the speed of the object. The faster an object travels, the greater the distance covered in a given interval of time, and consequentially, the greater the slope.

#### Question 4:

A stone is dropped from a height 100 m above the ground. Will it have uniform or non-uniform speed as it moves towards the ground?

#### Answer:

A stone dropped from a height of 100 m experiences acceleration due to gravity, which is constant. Under this constant acceleration, the speed of the falling body will increase. Therefore, the motion is non-uniform, assuming that we neglect air resistance.

#### Page No 200:

#### Question 5:

Given along-side is the distance-time graph of the body. With the help of this graph, plot the speed-time graph of the body.

figure

#### Answer:

Given:

Distance covered by body in 20 secs = 40 m

Speed = $\frac{\mathrm{Distance}\mathrm{travelled}}{\mathrm{Time}\mathrm{taken}}$ = $\frac{40\mathrm{m}}{20\mathrm{sec}}$ = $\frac{2\mathrm{m}}{1\mathrm{sec}}$

Therefore, the speed of the body is 2 m/sec.

Hence, the speed-time graph of the body can be plotted as shown:

#### Answer:

A body is said to be either at rest or in motion when it does not change its position with respect to a reference stationary object.

Take for example, a person standing inside a moving bus. He is at rest with respect to another person standing inside the bus. However, because the bus is moving, he will be in motion with respect to a person standing outside the bus. Hence, we can say that the state of rest and motion are relative terms.

#### Question C.3:

Express the difference between speed and velocity. Can speed and velocity be same?

#### Answer:

Speed |
Velocity |

Speed measures the distance travelled by a body in unit time. | Velocity not only measures the speed but also indicates the direction of motion of a body. |

Speed is a scalar quantity. | Velocity is a vector quantity. |

Speed and velocity appear to be the same as the magnitude of both are the same. However, they are two different physical quantities as speed has only magnitude but velocity has both magnitude and direction.

#### Page No 203:

#### Question C.4:

Why is speed called a scalar quantity?

#### Question E.2:

Find the distance between New Delhi and USA, if an aeroplane moving with a speed of 900 km/h takes 12 hours to complete the trip.

#### Answer:

Given:

Speed of aeroplane = 900 km/h

Time taken to complete the journey = 12 hrs

Speed of the body is calculated using the expression:

$\mathrm{Speed}=\frac{\mathrm{Distance}\mathrm{travelled}}{\mathrm{Time}\mathrm{taken}}$

Distance travelled by aeroplane = speed $\times $ time taken

= 900 $\times $12

= 10800 km

Therefore, the distance between New Delhi and USA is 10800 km.

#### Page No 204:

#### Question E.3:

An automobile travelling at an average speed of 75 km/h takes 5 hours to reach town B from town A. Calculate the distance between A and B.

#### Answer:

Given:

Average speed of automobile = 75 km/h

Time taken to complete the journey = 5 h

The speed of the body is calculated using the expression:

$\mathrm{Speed}=\frac{\mathrm{Distance}\mathrm{travelled}}{\mathrm{Time}\mathrm{taken}}$

Distance travelled by automobile = speed $\times $ time taken

= 75 $\times $5

= 375 km

Therefore, the distance between A and B is 375 km.

#### Question E.4:

The distance between two stations is 1995 km. How much time will a car take to cover this distance at an average speed of 19 km/h?

#### Answer:

Given:

Speed of the car = 19 km/h

Distance between the two stations = 1995 km

The speed of the body is calculated using the expression:

$\mathrm{Speed}=\frac{\mathrm{Distance}\mathrm{travelled}}{\mathrm{Time}\mathrm{taken}}$

Time taken by car to cover the distance = $\frac{\mathrm{Distance}\mathrm{travelled}}{\mathrm{Speed}}$

= $\frac{1995\mathrm{km}}{19\mathrm{km}/\mathrm{h}}$

= 105 h

Therefore, the time taken by the car to cover the given distance is 105 hours.

#### Page No 204:

#### Question E.5:

A car takes 20 minutes to cover 15 km. Calculate its speed in km/h.

#### Answer:

Given:

Distance travelled by the car = 15 km

Time taken by the car to cover the given distance = 20 min

Converting the time taken from minutes to hours:

Time taken by the car = 20 min = $\frac{20}{60}$= $\frac{1}{3}$ hours

Speed of the body is calculated using the following relation:

$\mathrm{Speed}=\frac{\mathrm{Distance}\mathrm{travelled}}{\mathrm{Time}\mathrm{taken}}$

Speed = $\frac{15\mathrm{km}}{{\displaystyle \frac{1}{3}}\mathrm{h}}$

= 45 km/h

Therefore, the speed of the car is 45 km/h.

#### Question E.6:

Rohit cycles down from his house to his school at a speed of 18 km/h and reaches there in 30 minutes. How far is the school from his house?

#### Answer:

Time taken by Rohit to reach school from home = 30 min

Speed by which Rohit reaches school = 18 km/h

Converting the time taken from minutes to hours:

Time taken = 30 min = $\frac{30}{60}$= 0.5 h

Distance travelled = speed $\times $ time taken

= 18 km/h $\times $ 0.5 h

= 9 km

Therefore, the distance between Rohit's school and his house is 9 km.

#### Page No 204:

#### Question E.7:

A train is travelling at a speed of 100 km/h. How long will it take to complete a journey of 1000 km, without stopping in-between?

#### Answer:

Given:

Speed of the train = 100 km/h

Distance to be covered = 1000 km

Time taken = $\frac{\mathrm{Distance}\mathrm{travelled}}{\mathrm{Speed}}$

= $\frac{1000\mathrm{km}}{100\mathrm{km}/\mathrm{h}}$ = 10 h

Therefore, the time taken by the train to cover a distance of 1000 km, at a speed of 100 km/h is 10 hours.

#### Page No 204:

#### Question E.8:

Calculate the time period of a simple pendulum if it takes 48 seconds to complete 12 oscillations.

#### Answer:

Number of oscillations made by the simple pendulum = 12

Time taken by the pendulum to make 12 oscillations = 48 s

Time period of the simple pendulum is the time taken by the pendulum to make one oscillation.

Time period of the pendulum = $\frac{48}{12}=4s$

Therefore, time period of the pendulum is 4 seconds.

#### Page No 204:

#### Question E.9:

A car covers 20 km in first hour of its journey, 40 km in next hour and 30 km in third hour. Calculate its average speed.

#### Answer:

Average speed = $\frac{\mathrm{Total}\mathrm{distance}\mathrm{covered}}{\mathrm{Total}\mathrm{time}\mathrm{taken}}=\frac{20\mathrm{km}+30\mathrm{km}+40\mathrm{km}}{3\mathrm{h}}=\frac{90\mathrm{km}}{3\mathrm{h}}=30\mathrm{km}/\mathrm{h}$

The average speed of the car is 30 km/h.

#### Page No 204:

#### Question E.1:

A truck travels 540 kilometres in 4.5 hours. Calculate its speed.

#### Answer:

To calculate the speed of the truck, we use the following relation:

$\mathrm{Speed}=\frac{\mathrm{Distance}}{\mathrm{Time}}=\frac{540\mathrm{km}}{4.5\mathrm{h}}=120\mathrm{km}/\mathrm{h}$

Thus, the speed of the truck is 120 km/h.
