### KSEEB Solutions for Class 9 Science Chapter 8 Intext Questions

Question 1.

An object has moved through a distance can it have zero displacement? If yes, support your answer with an example.

Answer:

In the figure distance of an object moved from 0 to A is 60 km and distance travelled is 60 km and displacement is 60 km. From 0 to A and back to B, distance travelled is 60 km + 25 km = 85 km. But displacement (35 km) is not equal to distance travelled (85 km). If we observe like this, displacement of a body is zero, but distance travelled is not zero, starting from point ‘0’ and returning back to ‘O’ final position is mixing with initial point. Hence displacement is zero.

Question 2.

A farmer moves along the boundary of a square field of side 10 m in 40s. What will be the magnitude of displacement of the farmer at the end of 2 minutes 20 seconds from his initial position?

Answer:

A farmer moves along the boundary of a square field of side 10 m in 40s

2 minutes 20 seconds means 140 seconds.

Distance travelled by farmer

= \(\frac{40}{40}\) × 140 m

= 140 m.

∴ Farmer moves for 2 minutes 20 seconds. It means \(\frac{140}{40}\) = 3.5 rounds

From the original point, he moves for 2 minutes 20 seconds.

Case i)

Original point means any point in the corner of the field. In this case he moves for 2 min 20 seconds from the diagonal of the field.

Displacement is equal to diagonal of the field displacement

= \(\sqrt{10^{2}+10^{2}}\)

= 14.1 m.

Case ii)

Original point means any point in the middle of the side of the field.

∴ Displacement is equal to any side of the field = 10 m.

It means displacement is between any original point ie in between 14.1 m and 10 m.

Question 3.

Which of the following is true for displacement?

a) It cannot be zero.

b) Its magnitude is greater than the distance travelled by the object.

Answer:

b) Its magnitude is greater than the distance travelled by the object.

Question 4.

Distinguish between speed and velocity

Answer:

Speed | Velocity |

1. Scalar quantity | Vector quantity |

2. Distance travelled in a given time. | Distance travelled along with a path with the given time. |

3. It is always is + ve. | It is + ve or – ve |

Question 5.

Under what condition (s) is the magnitude of the average velocity of an object equal to its average speed?

Answer:

If the speed of the object changing uniformly, the magnitude of the average velocity of an object equal to its average speed.

Question 6.

What does the odometer of an automobile measure?

Answer:

Odometer measures the speed of the vehicle.

Question 7.

What does the path of an object look like when it is in uniform motion?

Answer:

When the object is in uniform motion, it covers equal distance at equal intervals of time.

Question 8.

During an experiment, a signal from a spaceship reached the ground station in five minutes. What was the distance of the spaceship from the ground station? The signal travels at the speed of light, which is 3 × 10 ms^{-1}.

Answer:

Time taken by the signal to reach the ground station from the spaceship = 5 min = 5 × 60 = 300 seconds

Speed of the signal = 3 × 10^{8} m/s.

Speed = \(\frac{\text { Total distance travelled }}{\text { Total time taken }}\)

∴ Distance travelled = speed × time taken

= 3 × 10^{8} × 300

= 9 × 10^{10}m

∴ Distance of change of velocity = 9 × 10^{10} m

Question 9.

When will you say a body is in

- Uniform acceleration?
- non-uniform acceleration?

Answer:

- If the object covers equal distances in equal intervals of time, it is added to be in uniform motion.
- If the object covers unequal distances in equal intervals of time, it is said to be in non-uniform motion.

Question 10.

A bus decreases its speed from 80 km h^{-1} to 60 km h^{-1} in 5s. Find the acceleration of the bus.

Answer:

Initial velocity of the bus u = 80 kmh^{-1}

Final velocity, V = 60 km/h

time taken to decrease the velocity of bus, t = 5 seconds

acceleration, a = 5 seconds

= -1.112 ms^{-2}.

Question 11.

A train starting from a railway station and moving with uniform acceleration attains a speed 40 km h^{-1} in 10 minutes. Find its acceleration.

Answer:

Initial speed of the train u = 0

∴ acceleration of a train = 0.0185 ms^{-2}.

Question 12.

Question 16.

A bus starting from rest moves with a uniform acceleration of 0.1 ms^{-2} for 2 minutes. Find

(a) the speed acquired,

(b) the distance travelled.

Answer:

(a) Initial velocity of the bus u = 0 (Bus is at rest).

acceleration, a = 0.1 ms^{-2}

time t = 2 minutes = 120 seconds

Let the speed of bus be ‘V’

∴ v = 12m/s

(b) As per third law of motion:

v^{2} – u^{2} = 2as

(12)^{2} – (0)^{2} = 2(0. 1)s

∴ s = 720 m.

the speed of acquired by bus = 12 m/s.

the distance travelled = 720 m.

Question 17.

A train is travelling at a speed of 90 kmh^{-1} Brakes are applied so as to produce a uniform acceleration of -0.5 ms^{-2}. Find how far the train will go before it is brought to rest.

Answer:

Let the initial speed of the train be u = 90 Km/h

= 25 m/s.

Final speed of the train, v = 0 (train comes to rest)

acceleration a = 0.5 ms^{-2}

As per 3^{rd} law of motion

v^{2} = u^{2} + 2as

(0)^{2} = (25)^{2} + 2(0.5)s

s = train travelled distance

Train will travel 625 km before it is brought to rest.

Question 18.

A trolley, while going down an inclined plane has an acceleration of 2cms^{-2} what will be its velocity 3^{s} after the start?

Answer:

Initial velocity of a trolley, u = 0 (at rest)

acceleration, a = 2 cms^{-2} = 0.02 m/s^{2} time t = 3S

As per 1 st law of motion

v = u + at

Here V means velocity of a trolley after 3 s

V = 0 + 0.02 × 3

= 0.06 m/s.

∴ = 0.06 m/s.

Question 19.

A racing car has a uniform acceleration of 4ms^{-2}, what distance will it cover in 10s after start?

Answer:

Initial velocity of a racing car, u = 0 (at rest)

acceleration, a = 4 m/s^{2}

time t = 10 s

As per second law of motion

Here S means distance travelled by car after 10S

∴ Distance covered by car after 10 S = 200 m.

Question 20.

A stone is thrown in a vertically upward direction with a velocity of 5ms^{-1} If the acceleration of the stone during its motion is 10ms^{-2} in the downward direction, what will he the height attain by the stone and how much time will it take to reach there?

Answer:

The initial velocity of a stone, u = 5 ms^{-1}.

Final velocity of a stone v = 0 (at rest)

If the acceleration of the stone during its motion is = -10ms^{-2}.

Let the maximum height be ‘s’

v = u + at

0 = 5 + (-10)t

time taken by stone = 0.5s

As per 3rd Law of motion

v^{2} = u^{2} + 2as

(0)^{2} = (5)^{2} + 2(-10)s

The height attained by the store = 1.25 m.

Question 1.

An athlete completes one round of a circular track of diameter 200 m. in the 40s. What will be the distance covered and the displace¬ment at the end of 2 minutes 20s?

Answer:

Diameter of circular track, d = 200 m.

radius of the circular track,

r = \(\frac{\mathrm{d}}{2}\) = 100m

Circumference = 2πr = 2p(100) = 200πcm.

in 40s, athlete covers distance 200πm

in 1s, distance covered by athlete = \(\frac{200 \pi}{40}\) m

Athlete runs for 2 minutes 20s means 140s

∴ Displacement of all athlete is equal to the diameter of circle

= \(\frac{200 \times 22}{40 \times 7}\) × 140

= 2200 m

∴ Displacement = 200 m.

Question 2.

Joseph jogs from one end A to the other end B of a straight 300 M road in 2 minutes 30 seconds and then turns around and jogs 100 M back to point C in another 1 minute. What are Joseph’s average speeds and velocities in jogging (a) from A to B and (b) from A to C?

Answer:

a) from A to B distance covered by Joseph = 300 M.

Time taken to cover this distance

= 2 min 30 sec. = 150 seconds

Displacement = Nearest distance between A and B = 300 m.

Time taken = 150s

Average velocity = ygy = 2 m/s.

b) From A to C :

Total distance covered = Distance between A to B + distance between B to C

= 300 + 100 = 400 m.

Total time taken to cover from A to B + Time taken to cover from B to C

= 150 + 60= 210s.

Displacement from A to C

= AC + AB – BC

= 300 – 100

= 200m

Total time taken = Time taken to travel from A to B + Time taken to travel from B to C

= 210 s

∴ Average velocity = \(\frac{200}{210}\) =0.952 ms^{-1} .

Question 3.

Abdul, while during to school, computes the average speed for his trip to be 20Kmh^{-1} on his return trip along the some route, there is less traffic and the average speed is 30 Kmh^{-1}. What is the average speed for Abdul’s trip?

Answer:

i) Average speed of Abdul’s trip while driving to school = 20 Kmh^{-1}

Average speed = \(\frac{\text { Total distance }}{\text { Total time taken }}\)

Total distance = Distance travelled to reach school = t_{1}

∴ 20 = \(\frac{\mathrm{d}}{\mathrm{t}_{1}}\)

t_{1} = \(\frac{d}{20}\) …………… (i)

While returning from school

Total distance = Distance travelled while returning from school = d Now total time taken = t_{2}.

Question 4.

A motorboat starting from rest on a lake accelerates in a straight line at a constant rate of 3.0 ms^{-2} for 8.0 s. How far does the boat travel during this time?

Answer:

Initial velocity of motor boat, u =0

(at rest) ,

Accieratlon of a motor boat a = 3m/s^{2}

Time taken, t = 85

According to second equation of motion, s

S = 0 +\(\frac{1}{2}\) × (8)^{2 }= 96m.

∴ Motorboat travels = 96m.

Question 5.

A driver of a car travelling at 52kmh^{-1} applies the brakes and accelerates uniformly in the opposite direction. The car stops in 5s. Another driver going at 3kmh^{-1} in another car applies his brakes slowly and stop In 10s. on the same graph paper. Plot the speed versus time graphs for the two cars, which of the two cars travelled farther after the brakes were applied?

Answer:

initial velocity of A car u_{1} = 52 kmh^{-1}

= 14.4 m/s.

Time taken to stop car t_{1} = 5 s.

After 5s car comes to rest Initial velocity of B car, u_{2} = 3Kmh^{-1}

= 0.833 m/s. = 0.83 m/s.

Time taken to stop car t_{2} = 10s

After 10s car comes to rest.

Graph:

Area of ∆OPR = Area of ∆OSQ

When compared car A to car B, A car travelled father. After brake it travels 52 Kmh^{-1}

Question 6.

Fig 8.11 shows the distance-time graph of three objects A, B and C. Study the graph and answer the following questions.

a) Which of the three is travelled the fastest?

b) Are all three ever at the same point on the road?

c) How far has C travelled when B passes A?

d) How far has B travelled by the time passes C?

Answer:

Slope of B object is greater than slopes A and C. This is travelling fastest.

b) All three objects never meet at a point, hence these are not at the same point.

c) There are 7 boxes in X-axis = 4 Km

1 box = \(\frac{4}{7}\) Km

In the beginning, C object is 4 boxes away from 0

= \(\frac{16}{7}\) km

Distance to C from origin = Distance of C when it moves from B to A =8 Km

∴ Distance travelled by C when B passes A = 5.714 km.

d) Distance B travelled by the time it passes C = 9 boxes

∴ B has travelled 5.143 k.m. by the time when it passes C.

Question 7.

A ball is gently dropped from a height of 20 m. If its velocity increases uniformly at the rate of 10ms^{-1} with what velocity will it strike the ground? After what time will it strike the ground?

Answer:

Distance ball covers, S = 20 m

acceleration, a = 10Kmh^{-1} = 10 m/s

initial velocity, u = 0 (at rest)

When ball strikes, its final velocity,

According to 3rd law of motion

v^{2} = u^{2} + 2as

v^{2} = 0 + 2(10)(20)

v = 20 m/s.

According to 1 st Law of motion v = u + at

Time taken by ball to strike the ground, t,

20 = 0 + 10 (t)

∴ t = 2s

∴ 2s is required to ball for striking the ground and velocity is 20 m/s
