Solved Questions For You:
Question 1. Answer the following:
(a) You can shield a charge from electrical forces by putting it inside a hollow conductor. Can you shield a body from the gravitational influence of nearby matter by putting it inside a hollow sphere or by some other means?
(b) An astronaut inside a small space ship orbiting around the earth cannot detect gravity. If the space station orbiting around the earth has a large size, can he hope to detect gravity?
(c) If you compare the gravitational force on the earth due to the sun to that due to the moon, you would find that the Sun’s pull is greater than the moon’s pull. However, the tidal effect of the moon’s pull is greater than the tidal effect of the sun. Why?
(a) No, the gravitational force is a long-range force and we cannot escape from it.
(b) Due to the small space ship, the force of attraction between the earth and the ship is too less, the astronaut cannot detect gravity. If the size of the space station is very large, the magnitude of the gravity will also become appreciable and hence he can hope to detect it.
(c) Generally, the gravitational force of attraction between two bodies is directly proportional to their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. The gravitational force between the sun and the earth or between the moon and the earth varies inversely to the square of the distance. But due to the very large mass of the sun, the gravitational force on the earth due to the sun is about 7×10 times the force due to the moon on it.
The tidal effect varies inversely as the cube of the distance. Therefore, though the mass of the moon is quite small as compared to the mass of the sun, yet the tidal effect of moon’s pull is very large (as compared to that due to the sun) due to small distance between moon and earth.
Question 2: Which of the following symptoms is not likely to afflict an astronaut in space (a) swollen feet, (b) swollen face, (c) headache, (d) orientational problem.
(a) Legs hold the entire mass of a body in standing position due to gravitational pull. In space, an astronaut feels weightlessness because of the absence of gravity. Therefore, swollen feet of an astronaut do not affect him/her in space.
(b) A swollen face is caused generally because of apparent weightlessness in space. Sense organs such as eyes, ears nose, and mouth constitute a person’s face. This symptom can affect an astronaut in space.
(c) Headaches are caused because of mental strain. It can affect the working of an astronaut in space.
(d) Space has different orientations. Therefore, the orientational problems can affect an astronaut in space.
So, the correct option will be
(b) work done by gravitational force in the above case,(c) work done by friction on a body sliding down an inclined plane,
(d) work done by an applied force on a body moving on a rough horizontal plane with uniform velocity.
(e) work done by the resistive force of air on a vibrating pendulum in bringing it to rest.
Work done is considered positive when the displacement is in the same direction as that of the applied force and negative when the displacement is in the opposite direction of applied force.
In the given case, force and displacement are in the same direction. Hence, the sign of work done is positive. In this case, the work is done on the bucket.
In the given case, the direction of force (vertically downward) and displacement (vertically upward) are opposite to each other. Hence, the sign of work done is negative.
(c) As force and displacement are in opposite directions, work done is negative.
(d) As force and displacement are in the same direction, work done is positive.
(e) As force and displacement are in opposite directions, work done is negative.
Question 4: Give the magnitude and direction of the net force acting on
(a) A drop of rain falling down with a constant speed.
(b) A cork of mass floating on water.
(c) A kite skillfully held stationary in the sky.
(d) A car moving with a constant velocity of on a rough road.
(e) A high-speed electron in space far from all material objects, and free of electric and magnetic fields.
(a) As the raindrop is falling with a constant speed, its acceleration, . Hence net force .
(b) As the cork is floating on water, its weight is balanced by the upthrust due to water. Therefore, the net force on the cork is 0.(c) As the kite is held stationary, in accordance with the first law of motion, the net force on the kite is 0.
(d) Force is being applied to overcome the force of friction. But as the velocity of the car is constant, its acceleration, . Hence net force on the car .
(e) As the high-speed electron in space is far away from all gravitating objects and free of electric and magnetic fields, the net force on the electron is 0.
