Two particles A and B start fro rest and move for equal time on a straight line. The particle A has an acceleration a for first half of time and 2a for the second half. The particle B has an acceleration 2a for the second half. The particle B has an acceleration 2a for the first half and a for the second half. Which particle has covered larger distance?

Answers : (1)


particle A ( accleration a for first half and 2a for second half)

particle B ( accleration 2a for first half and a for second half)

let the total time for complete journey be T

for particle A

     for first half  time (T/2 , accleration a)

                                       S1=ut+at^2/2       (u=0)


now particle has gained some velocity



       for second half time (T/2 ,accleration 2a)



     S=S1+S2=5aT^2/8   .............1( total distance moved for particle A )

for particle B

  for first half t=T/2 ,accleration=2a

             S1=Ut+2at^2/2       (u=0)


 now the particle is having velocity


 for second half  t=T/2 ,accleration =a

              S2  =ut+at^2/2

                    =aT.T/2 + aT^2/8


  S=S1+S2=7aT^2/8...............3 (total distance moved for particle B)

 so distance moved by B particle is greater

when we have a mass m on top of another mass M and we apply a force on the lower block (mass M) why is the the coefficient of static friction equal to that of coefficient friction?
simple reason: Due to Newton’s thord law of motion. that is: Every action has its equal and oppsoite reaction. Therfore that friction force acts on both blocks equal and opposite to each...

An object is kept at x = 0, a force on the object is F (constant) from t =0. Friction coefficient vary as μ=cx. Then the distance travelled by the block is
Distance travelled by the block => Net Force on block = > F – uMg = Ma a = acceleration of block. F = M[cgx + vdv/dx] vdv = Fdx/M – cgxdx integerating both sides, v^2/2 = Fx/M -cgx^2/2 v =...
