a cart moves on a smooth horizontal surface due to an external constant force F the intial mass of the the cart is M and the velocity is 0. sand falls on the cart with negligible velocity at constant rate U kg/s and sticks to the cart . find the velosity of the cart at the time T . ALSO FIND THE RATE OF INCREASE OF THE KINETIC ENERGY OF THE CART. please answer the above question in detail

at any time ,

a = F/(M+m),

where m = Ut,   [dm/dt = U]

now writing acceleration as dv/dt

dv/dt = F/(M+Ut)

now integrating both sides ,we get

V = F*ln(1+Ut/M)/U initial conditions are at t= 0,V=0, m = 0

now k.E , k = 0.5*(M+m)V2

rate of change of kE is dk/dt

dk/dt = 0.5*U*V2 + 0.5*(M+m)*2*V*dv/dt

dk/dt = 0.5*U*V2 + (M+m)*V*dv/dt

now just substituting the values of V , m, dV/dt

we can get the rate of change of kE

mass of system at any time t= M+Ut
as we know that
 mdv/dt =Fext. + Vrel.(of variable mass w.r.t.cart)dm/dt
 so, we can write
   (M + Ut)dv/dt = F + 0*U
  dv = int[dt/(M/F+Ut/F] limits 0 to t
 so, v = ln[(M/F+Ut/F)/(M/F)]
or v = ln[(M+Ut)/M]
  hence we can find K.E. & its rate of change
