Part – C

III. Answer any FIVE of the following questions : ( 5 × 3 = 15 )

Question 19. Deduce the expression for horizontal range of a projectile. For what angle of pro jection does horizontal range become maximum?

Answer:

Expression for range of the projectile

We know that (v_{0 }cosθ) remains constant.

Instantaneous distance along the horizontal is given by x = (v_{0 }cosθ)t

for x = R (range of the projectile),

t = T= time of flight.

Hence R= \(\left(v_{0} \cos \theta\right)\left(\frac{2 v_{0} \sin \theta}{g}\right)\)

Note: R = \(=\frac{2}{\mathrm{g}} v_{0 \mathrm{x}} v_{0 \mathrm{y}}\)

i.e., R = \(\frac{v_{0}^{2} \sin 2 \theta}{g}\) where sin2θ = 2sinθ cosθ

Hence R ∝ v_{0}^{2 }for the given angle of projection.

Question 20.

Write any three laws of friction.

Answer:

- Limiting friction depends on the nature of the surfaces in contact but not on the surface area as long as normal reaction remains the same.
- Force of friction always acts tangential to the surface and opposite the direction of motion.
- The limiting friction is directly proportional to the normal reaction between two surfaces in contact.
- The kinetic friction becomes constant, once there is a relative motion between the two surfaces.
- μ
_{s}>μ_{k}> μ_{r}where μ_{s}, μ_{k}and μ_{r}are coefficient of friction due to static friction, kinetic friction and rolling friction respectively.

Question 21.

Y = \(\frac{\text { stress }}{\text { strain }}\) so that stress = (Y) (strain)

i.e. stress = Y ∝ ∆θ

where stress represents thermal stress, Y – Young’s Modulus of elasticity.

Question 26.

Show that specific heat capacity of a solid is equal to three times that of Gas constant (C = 3R).

Answer:

For solids U = 3RT.

At constant pressure, ∆Q = ∆U

∴C = \(\frac{\Delta \mathrm{Q}}{\Delta \mathrm{T}}\) = 3R .

Part – D

IV. Answer any TWO of the following questions : ( 2 × 5 = 10 )

Question 27.

What is velocity – time graph. Deduce x = v_{0}t +\(\frac{1}{2}\)at^{2} by using velocity-time graph.

Answer:

A graph of velocity of a particle plotted along the Y-axis and time along the X-axis is known as v-t graph and the curve is known as velocity time curve.

Let ‘v_{0}’ be the initial velocity of a particle. Let ‘a’ be the B uniform acceleration v – t graph gives a straight line with a constant slope, tanθ = m

i.e. a = \(\frac{v-v_{0}}{t}\)……..(1)

From the figure OABD is a trapezium.

Area of trapezium OABD = Area of rectangle OACD + Area of triangle ACB

The second term on the right indicates the additional distance covered by the particle due to acceleration.

i.e., area of trapezium = (OA)(OD) + 1/2 (AC)(BC) = v_{0}t + 1/2 t(v – v_{0}) by using (1)

Area of trapezium = v_{0}t + 1/2 at^{2}

From the dimensional analysis. the right hand terms indicate the distance travelled. From the principle of homogeneity, the left hand side term should indicate the distance covered.

Hence area of the trapezium = x = v_{0}t + 1/2 at^{2}

For a uniform motion, a = 0 and x = v_{0}t

For a particle starting from rest v_{0 }= 0, x = 1/2 at^{2}

in a vector form, \(\vec{x}=\vec{v}_{0} t+\frac{1}{2} \overrightarrow{a t}^{2}\)

Question 28.

State and illustrate the law of conservation of linear momentum for any two colliding particles in a closed system.

Answer:

Statement: In an isolated system of collision of bodies, the total linear momentum before impact is equal to the total linear momentum after impact.

Let m_{1} and m_{2} be the masses of two bodies moving along \(\vec{v}_{1 i}\) and \(\vec{v}_{2 i}\). Let \(\vec{v}_{1 f}\) and be the \(\vec{v}_{2 f}\) be final velocities after the impact.

At the time of impact the force of action acts on the body B and the force of reaction acts on A.

Applying Newton’s III law of motion

\( |Force of action on \mathrm{B}|=-| Force of reaction on \mathrm{A} |\)

This shows that the total final linear momentum of the isolated system equals its total initial momentum.

Question 29.

State and explain parallel axes and perpendicular axes theorems of moment of inertia.

Answer:

Statement: The moment of inertia of a body about any axis is equal to the sum of the moment of inertia of the body about a parallel axis passing through the centre of mass and the product of mass of the body and square of the distance between the two parallel axes.

I = I_{0} + Md^{2}.

Let ‘d’ be the distance between the two parallel axes. Let I be the moment of inertia about an axis passing through the centre of mass of a thin rod of length L.

We know that I_{0} = \(\frac{\mathrm{ML}^{2}}{12}\) and d = \(\frac{\mathrm{L}}{2}\)

Hence moment of inertia at one end = \(\frac{M L^{2}}{12}+M\left(\frac{L}{2}\right)^{2}\)

I = \(\frac{M L^{2}}{4}\left[\frac{1}{3}+1\right]=\frac{M L^{2}}{3}\)

Statement : The moment of inertia about an axis perpendicular to two other axes acting in the same plane with their point of intersection being a point on it and the (third) axis passing through the common point, is equal to the sum of moments of inertia about the two axes.

e.g: I_{z} = I_{x} + I_{y}.

Let M be the mass of the disk of radius R.

M.I. about a point passing through the centre and perpendicular to the plane containing X and Y is I = \(\frac{M R^{2}}{2}\)

Since X and Y are in the same plane, I_{x} = I_{y}

∴ I_{z} = I_{x} + I_{y} becomes I_{z} = 2I_{x}

hence I_{x} = \(\frac{I_{Z}}{2}=\frac{M R^{2}}{4}\)

i.e. moment of inertia of a circular disc about the diameter \(\frac{I_{Z}}{2}=\frac{M R^{2}}{4}\)

V. Answer any TWO of the following questions: ( 2 × 5 = 10 )

Question 30.

State and explain the laws of thermal conductivity and hence mention the SI unit of coefficient of thermal conductivity.

Answer:

The quantity of heat conducted during the steady state is directly proportional to the,

(i) Area of cross-section of a conductor.

(ii) Temperature difference between the two points or ends (θ_{1} – θ_{2}).

(iii) Time of passage of heat (t) and inversely proportional to the thickness or distance between the two ends of the conductor (d).

i.e., Q = \(\frac{\mathrm{KA}\left(\theta_{1}-\theta_{2}\right) \mathrm{t}}{\mathrm{d}}\)

where ’K’ is thermal conductivity of the material of the conductor.

The SI unit of thermal conductivity is Wm^{-1 }K^{-1}.

Question 31.

Deduce the expression for energy stored in a body executing simple harmonic motion.

Answer:

We know that total energy of a particle executing SHM,

TE = KE + PE

where K.E= \(\frac{1}{2}\) mv^{2}

K.E = \(\frac{1}{2}\)mA^{2} cos^{2} (ωt + Φ)ω^{2}

and P.E = \(\frac{1}{2}\) ky^{2}

i.e., P.E = \(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2}. A^{2}sin^{2}(ωt + Φ)

Hence T.E = \(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2}. A^{2 }(cos^{2}(cost + Φ) + sin^{2} (ωt + Φ))

or T.E = \(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2}. A^{2}

Representing mω^{2 }= k

we get TE = \(\frac{1}{2}\) kA^{2}

K.E of the particle=\(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2}. A^{2 }– \(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2}. x^{2}

= \(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2}(A^{2 }-x^{2 })

where x = A cos (ωt + Φ)

Also K.E = \(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2}(A^{2})(1 – cos^{2}(ωt + Φ))

i.e., K.E = \(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2 }A^{2}sin^{2}(ωt + Φ)

K(t) – K.E of a particle.

U(t) of a particle.

T.E = K(t) + U(t) = \(\frac{1}{2}\) kA^{2}

where A – amplitude, k = mω^{2}, m – mass of the particle

ω = angular frequency = \(\frac{2 \pi}{\mathrm{T}}\)

T = Period of SHM

TE = KE + PE = \(\frac{1}{2}\)mω^{2} A^{2} cos^{2} (ωt + Φ) + \(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2 }A^{2}sin^{2}(ωt + Φ) = \(\frac{1}{2}\) mω^{2 }A^{2}

Question 32.

Discuss the mode of vibration of air columns in a closed pipe and hence define the fundamental frequency of vibration.

Answer:

Let ‘L’ be the length of the closed pipe. A pipe with one end closed is known as a closed pipe system. Le V be the velocity of sound in air. Length of half segment = \(\frac{\lambda_{0}}{4}\)

i.e., L = \(\frac{\lambda_{0}}{4}\) i.e., λ_{0} = 4L.

The least mode of vibration is called fundamental mode i.e.,

fundamental frequency f_{0} = \(\frac{\mathbf{v}}{\lambda}=\frac{\mathbf{v}}{4 L}\)

In the second mode of vibration.

i.e., f_{2 }= \(\frac{5 v}{4 L}\)

Hence f_{0} : f_{1} : f_{2} :……..: f_{n} : : 1 : 3 : 5 :………: (2n – 1)

Answer:

Given m = 0. 25 kg, R = 1.5 m, co = 40 rev. min^{-1}

i.e., ω = \(\frac{40 \times 2 \pi}{60}\) rad s^{-1}

ω = \(\frac{40 \times 2 \pi}{60}\)

ω = \(\frac{4 \times 3.14}{3}\) = 4.19 rad/s^{-1}

Linear speed = v = rw = 1.5 × 4.19 = 6.285 ms^{-1}

T = 6.584 N

Question 34.

h = 40 m, η = 30% , density ρ = 10^{3} kg m^{-3}, g = 10 ms^{-2}

Potential Energy = mgh = Vρgh = 30 × 10^{3} × 10 × 40

i.e. Work done = 12 × 10^{6}J.

Answer:

Given r = 0.2 m, F = 1 × 10^{-6} kgwt =1 × 10^{-6} × 9.8 = 9.8 × 10^{6 }N

G = 6.67 × 10^{-11} Nm^{2 }kg^{-2}, m_{1} = m_{2} = m

Answer:

V_{s} = 72 kmph = 20 ms^{-1 } f = 640 Hz, V = 340 ms^{-1}

W.K.T. apparent frequency
