				   . A ball is dropped from a height of 20 m above the surface of water in a lake. The refractive index of water is 4/3. A fish inside the lake, in the line of fall of the ball, is looking at the ball. At an instant, when the ball is 12.8 m above the water surface, the fish sees the speed of ball as 

(A) 9 m/s

(B) 12 m/s

(C) 16 m/s

(D) 21.33 m/s

Answers : (1)


fish will see the image of ball after reraction through water surface...


             n2/v - n1/u = n2-n1/R

R for plane surface is infinity & n2(refrative index of water) , n1(refractive index of air)

         4/3v - 1/u = 0

         v = 4u/3  ..........1

now differentiating eq 1 wrt t

  (velocity of image)dv/dt = 4/3.(du/dt) (velocity of object)

now when ball has fallen 12.8m then its velocity is U..

 so velocity of ball as seen by fish is (4/3) .U

        V = 4/3. (U) =4/3 (sqrt2g(H-h))                                    (change in height (H-h) = 7.2m)

An object moving with the speed of 6.25m/s, is decelerated at a rate given by:dv–2.5vdt?where v is the instantaneous speed. The time taken by the object, to come to rest would be?
dv = – 2.5 v dt integerating both sides, dv/v = -2.5dt logv = -2.5t to come to rest velcity should be zero and log0 = – infinity therefore, from the concept the object would never stops .
