A motorcycle drives from A to B with a uniform speed of 30 kmh^{1} and returns hack with a speed of 20 kmh^{1}. Find its average speed.

Answer:

Let distance AB = x km.

Time taken from going A to B; t_{1} = \(\frac {x}{30}\) h

Time taken from goingBto A; t_{2} = \(\frac {x}{20}\) h

Total time taken,t = t_{1} + t_{2} = \(\frac {x}{30}\) + \(\frac {x}{20}\) = \(\frac {x}{50}\) h

total distance = x + x = 2x km

∴ Average speed = 24 km/h

Answer:

When an object is moving in a circular path with a constant speed, the motion of an object is said to be uniform circular motion.

Question 8.

A person travels a distance of 4.0 m towards the east, then turns left and travels 3.0 m towards the north.

1. What is the total distance traveled by the person? North

2. What is his displacement?

Answer:

1. Total distance = OA + AB

= 4m + 3m

Total distance = 7m

2. Total displacement = OB = \(\sqrt{(O A)^{2}+(A B)^{2}}\)

=\(\sqrt{(4)^{2}+(3)^{2}}\) = \(\sqrt{25}\) = 5

Displacement = 5 m

Question 9.

A person travels on a semi-circular track of radius 50 m during a morning walk. If he starts from one end of the track and reaches the other end, calculates the distance traveled and displacement of the person.

Answer:

Let the person start moving from A and reach B via O.

The distance travelled by the person

= Length of track = πr

= \(\frac{22}{7}\) x 50 m = 157.14m

Distance = 157.14 m

The displacement is equal to the diameter of the semi-circular track joining A to B via O.

= 2r = 2 x 50 m = 100m

∴ Displacement = 100 m

Question 10.

Dinesh takes 20 minutes to cover a distance of 5 km on a bicycle. Calculate his average speed in

1. m/s

2. km/h

Answer:

1. Average speed in metre/second

Distance travelled by Dmesh = 5 km = 5 x 1000 m = 5000 m

time taken (t) = 20 min = 20 x 60 seconds = 1200 seconds

2. Average speed in kilometre/hour

Average speed = \(\frac{5 \mathrm{km}}{\frac{20}{60} \mathrm{h}}\) = 15 km/h

∴ Average speed = 15 km/h

Question 11.

A train starting from a railway station and moving with uniform acceleration attains a speed of 20 m/s in 10 seconds. Find its acceleration.

Answer:

Given,

initial velocity, u = 0 m/s

Final velocity, υ = 20 m/s

time taken, t = 10 s

Acceleration, a = \(\frac{v-u}{t}=\frac{20-0}{10}\)

∴ a = 2 m/s^{2}

Question 12.

A car moving with a speed of 72 km/h is brought to rest in 10 seconds by applying brakes. Find the magnitude of average retardation due to brakes and distance traveled by car after applying the brakes.

Answer:

Given, initial velocity = 72 km/h = 72 x \(\frac{5}{18}\) = 20 m/s

Final velocity = 0 m/s

Time taken = 10s.

1. Retardation

Acceleration, a = \(\frac{υ – u}{t}\)

a = \(\frac{0 – 20}{10}\) = -2m/s^{2}

∴ Retardation = 2 m/s^{2}

2. Distance travelled using equation, υ^{2} – u^{2} = 2as

(0)^{2} – (20)^{2} = 2 (-2)s

∴ s = 100 m

Question 13.

Question 15.

Obtain a relation for the distance traveled by an object moving with uniform acceleration in the time interval between the 4th and 5th seconds.

Answer:

Using equation, s = ut + \(\frac{1}{2}\) at^{2}

Distance travelled in 5 s; s_{1} = u x 5 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) a(5)^{2}

s_{1} = 5u + \(\frac{25a}{2}\)

Distance travelled in 4 s; s_{2} = u x 4 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) a(4)^{2}

s_{2} = 4u x 8a

Distance travelled in the interval between 4^{th} and 5^{th} sec.

= s_{1} – s_{1} = (5u + \(\frac{25a}{2}\)) – (4u + 8a)

∴ Distance travelled = u + \(\frac{9a}{2}\)

Here, u = 0, u = 20m/s and t = 2s

a = \(\frac {20 – 0}{2}\) = 10 m/s^{2}

(b) Here, u = 20m/s, υ = 20m/s and t = 8s

a = \(\frac {20 – 0}{2}\) = 0 m/s^{2}

Question 6.

An electron moving with a velocity of 5 x 10 ms^{1} enters into a uniform electric field and acquires a uniform acceleration of 10 ms^{2} in the direction of its initial motion.

1. Calculate the time in which the electron would acquire a velocity double its initial velocity.

2. How much distance would the electron cover in this time?

Answer:

Given, u =5 x 10 m/s^{2}

a = 10^{4} m/s^{2}

1. From υ = u + at

take υ = 2u

2u = u + at

u = at

5 x 10^{4} = 10^{4} x t

∴ t = 5s

2. From s = ut + \(\frac{1}{2}\) at^{2}

s = 5 x 10^{4} x 5 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) x 10^{4} x (5)^{2}

∴ s = 37.5 x 10^{4} m

Question 7.

The motion of a train is described by the velocity-time graph as shown in the figure given below.

Find distance travelled by car between

1. 0 to 20 s

2. 20 s to 50 s

Answer:

Distance travelled = Area of velocity – time curve

1. For (0 to 20 s)

Distance = Area of ΔOAC = \(\frac{1}{2}\) x OC x AC = \(\frac{1}{2}\) x 20 x 10 = 100 m

2. For (20 s to 50 s)

Distance = Area of rectangle ABDC + Area of ΔBED

Distance = AC x CD + \(\frac{1}{2}\) DE x DB = 10 x (40 – 20) + \(\frac{1}{2}\) x 10 x 5 = 225m

### Motion Class 9 Extra Questions Long Answer Type

Question 1.

Derive an expression for three equations of motion for uniform accelerated motion graphically.

Answer:

Equation of motion by graphical method

Let us consider a body is moving with acceleration where u is initial velocity and u is final velocity, s is the displacement of object and t is a time interval.

1. υ = u + at

We know that slope of υ – t graph gives acceleration so slope

= a = \(\frac{v-u}{t-0}\)

a = \(\frac{v-u}{t}\)

∴ υ = u + at

2. s = ut + \(\frac{1}{2}\) at^{2}

We know that area under u – t graph gives the displacement.

Area = s = area of triangle CDE + area of rectangle ABCE

s = ut + \(\frac{1}{2}\) x t x (υ – u) from (υ – u = at)

Putting the value of υ – u

s = ut + \(\frac{1}{2}\) at^{2}

3. υ^{2} – u^{2} = 2as

We know that area under υ – t graph gives displacement

Area = s = area of trapezium ABDE

s = \(\frac{1}{2}\) x (υ+u) x t From I (t = \(\frac{υ – u}{a}\))

Putting the value of t.

υ^{2} – u^{2} = 2as

### Motion Class 9 Extra Questions HOTS

Question 1.

The distance-time graph of two trains is given below. The trains start simultaneously in the

same direction.

1. How much ahead of A is B when the motion starts?

2. What is the speed of B ?

3. When and where will A catch B?

4. What is the difference between speeds of A and B?

5. Is the speed of both the trains uniform or non-uniform? Justify your answer.

Answer:

- 100km
- Speed of B, υ = \(\frac{x_{2}-x_{1}}{t}\) = \(\frac{150-100}{2-0}\) = 25 km/h
- After 2 hours, A catches B at 2. i.e.,150 km from origin 0.
- The slope of the distance-time graph of A is greater than that of B. Therefore, the speed of A is greater than

speed B. Speed of A = Slope of OQ = \(\frac{150}{2}\) = 75 km/h

Difference between speed of A and B =75 km/h – 25 km/h = 50 km/h - The speed of both trains is uniform.

Question 2.

A car starts from rest and moves along the x-axis with constant acceleration 5 ms2 for 8 seconds. If it then continues with constant velocity, what distance will the car cover in 12 seconds since it started from rest?

Answer:

Given,

u = 0, a = 5ms^{-2}, t_{1} = 8s and t_{2} = 12s.

Total distance = distance travelled during acceleration + distance travelled during constant velocity

s = s_{1} + s_{2}

For S_{1}

s_{1} = u_{1}t_{1} + \(\frac{1}{2}\) \(a t_{1}^{2}\)

s_{1} = \(\frac{1}{2}\) x 5 x (8)^{2}

s_{1} = 160 m

For S_{1}

Applying υ = u + at

υ = 0 + (5 x 8)

u = 40 m/s

s_{1} = ut_{2}

s_{2} = 40 x 12

s_{2} = 480 m

Total distance, s = s_{1} + s_{2}

s = 160 + 480 = 640m

Question 3.

An object is dropped from rest at a height of 150 m and simultaneously another object is dropped from rest at a height 100 m. What is the difference in their heights after 2s if both the objects drop with the same acceleration? How does the difference in heights vary with time?

Answer:

At t = 0, difference in heights of two stones A and B

= 150 – 100 = 50 m

In t = 2s, distance through which each stone falls is –

s = ut + \(\frac{1}{2}\) at^{2} = 0 x \(\frac{1}{2}\) x 10 x (2)^{2} = 20m

∴ Difference in heights of two stones A and B

= (150 – 20) – (100 – 20) = 50

The difference in heights will remain the same at all times during their fall.

Question 4.

An object starting from rest travels 20 m in the first 2s and 160 m in the next 4s. What will be the velocity after 7s from the start?

Answer:

Given, the object travels 20 m first 2 s and 160 m in the next 4s.

From s = ut + \(\frac{1}{2}\) at^{2}

In first 2 s, s = 20 m

20 = 0 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) a(2)^{2}

20 = 2 a

∴ a = 10 m/s^{2}

Velocity at the end of 2s is υ = u + at

υ = 0 + 10 x 2 = 20 m/s

In next 4 s,

s = ut + \(\frac{1}{2}\) a’t^{2}

160 = 20 x 4 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) a’(4)^{2}

80 = 8 a’

a’ = 10 m/s^{2}
