a small block b is placed on a block a of mass 5kg and lenght 20cm.initially block b is near the right end of block a.

a constant horizontal force of 10newton is applied on block a

all the surfaces are assumed frictionless

find the time elapsed before the block b seperates from block a





plz help me

Answers : (1)


let the mass of block b is mb....

force on lower block is F=10N....

accleration of system is a...

    (mb+5)a = 10

         a= 10/(mb+5) m/s2

now a seudo force acts on the upper block in opposite direction and its magnitude is f=(mb)a...

 due to this force block moves in opposite direction with accleration a1....



when the block covers a distance of 20cm then it separates out...

   0.2 = a1t2/2

   t2  =  (0.4/a1)=[0.04(5+mb)]

   t=  0.2(5+mb)1/2

An aluminium rod has a breaking strain 0.2%. The minimum cross sectional area of the rod in m2 in order to supporta load of 104N is if young`s modulus is 7×109Nm-2
From Young’s Modulus formulae: Y = Fl’/Al where l’ = 2l/1000 putting all the values we get, 7 x 10^9 = 10^4 * 2l/1000*A*l solving we get, A = 1/1400 m^2.
