 # A monkey is decending from the branch of a tree with constant acceleration. If the breaking strength is 75% of the weight of the monkey, the minimum acceleration with which monkey can slide down without breaking the branch is     (a)    g    (b)    3g/4    (c)    g/4    (d)    g/2 Navjyot Kalra

(c)
Let T be the tension in the branch of a tree when monkey is descending with acceleration a. Then mg - T = ma; and T = 75% of weight of monkey
?    ma = mg - (75/100)  mg= (1/4)  mg
or a =g/4.

(c)
Let T be the tension in the branch of a tree when monkey is descending with acceleration a. Then mg - T = ma; and T = 75% of weight of monkey
?    ma = mg - (75/100)  mg= (1/4)  mg
or a =g/4.

As ma=mg _T ..so T=75%=2/3...
Now as a=g.
So put ma=mg ...mg=mg_2/3..mg cross on both sides ..so 1_0.75 ..as2/3 sequel to 0.75...so ans =0.25 or g/4

A body kept on a smooth inclined plane inclination 1 in x will remain stationary relative to the inclined plane if the plane is given a horizontal accleraaccel equal to

Here mg - T = ma
mg - (75/100)mg = ma
a = g/4
