**Question-1 :-**

When a particle moves in a circle with a uniform speed

(a) its velocity and acceleration are both constant

(b) its velocity is constant but the acceleration changes

(c) its acceleration is constant but the velocity changes

(d) its velocity and acceleration both change.

**Answer-1 :-**

The option (**d) its velocity and acceleration both change**. is correct

**Explanation:**

In a circular motion, the direction of particle changes. Therefore, velocity, being a vector quantity, also changes.

As the velocity changes, acceleration also changes.

**Question-2 :-**

Tow cars having masses m_{1} and m_{2} moves in circles of radii r_{1} and r_{2} respectively. If they complete the circle in equal time, the ratio of their angular speed ω_{1}/ω_{2} is

(a) m_{1}/m_{2 }

(b) r_{1}/r_{2 }

(c) m_{1}r_{1}/m_{2}/r_{2 }

(d) 1.

**Answer-2 :-**

The option **(d) 1.** is correct

**Explanation:**

1. Time period (*T*) is same for both the cars.

We know that :

**Question-3 :-**

A car moves at a constant speed on a road as shown in figure. The normal force by the road on the car N_{A} and N_{B} when it is at the points A and B respectively.

Information to decide the relation of N_{A} and N_{B.}

(a) N_{A} = N_{B}

(b) N_{A} > N_{B }

(c) N_{A} < N_{B }

(d) insufficient

**Answer-3 :-**

The option **(c) N _{A} < N**

_{B }is correct

**Explanation:**

From the figure in the question, it is clear that *r B* > *r A*.

Here, normal reaction is inversely proportional to the centrifugal force acting on the car, while taking turn on the curve track. Also, centrifugal force is inversely proportional to the radius of the circular track.

Therefore, we have:

N_{A} < N_{B }

**Question-4 :-**

A particle of mass m is observed from an inertial frame of reference and is found to move in a circle of radius r with a uniform speed v. The centrifugal force on it is

(a) mv²/r towards the centre

(b) mv²/r away from the centre

(c) mv²/r along the tangent through the particle

(d) zero

**Answer-4 :-**

The option **(d) zero _{ } **is correct

**Explanation:**

The centrifugal force is a pseudo force and can only be observed from the frame of reference, which is non-inertial w.r.t. the particle.

**Question-5 :-**

A particle of mass m rotates with a uniform angular speed ω. It is viewed from a frame rotating about the Z-axis with a uniform angular speed ω_{0}. The centrifugal force on the particle is

(a) mω^{2}a

(b)

(c)

(d) mω ω_{0} a.

**Answer-5 :-**

The option **(b) _{ } **is correct

**Explanation:**

The centrifugal force on the particle depends on the angular speed (ω_{0}) of the frame and not on the angular speed (ω) of the particle. Thus, the value of centrifugal force on the particle is

**Question-6 :-**

A particle is kept fixed on a turntable rotating uniformly. As seen from the ground the particle goes in a circle, its speed is 20 cm/s and acceleration is 20 cm/s^{2}. The particle is now shifted to a new position to make the radius half of the original value. The new value of the speed and acceleration will be

(a) 10 cm/s, 10 cm/s^{2 }

(b) 10 cm/s, 80 cm/s^{2}

(c) 40 cm/s, 10 cm/s^{2}

(d) 40 cm/s, 40 cm/s^{2}

**Answer-6 :-**

The option **(a) 10 cm/s, 10 cm/s ^{2 }_{ } **is correct

**Explanation:**

It is given that the turntable is rotating with uniform angular velocity. Let the velocity be ω .

We have:

**Question-7 :-**

Water in a bucket is whirled in a vertical circle with string attached to it. The water does no fall down even when the bucket is inverted at the top of its path. We conclude that in this position

(a) mg =mv²/r

(b) mg is greater than mv²/r

(c) mg is not greater than mv²/r

(d) mg is not less than mv²/r

**Answer-7 :-**

The option **(c) mg is not greater than mv²/r _{ } **is correct

**Explanation:**

At the top of the path, the direction of *mg *is vertically downward and for centrifugal force (mv²/r) , the direction is vertically upward. If the vertically downward force is not greater, water will not fall.

**Question-8 :-**

A stone of mass m tied to a string of length l is rotated in a circle with the other end of the string as the centre. The speed of the stone is v. If the string breaks, the stone will move

(a) towards the centre

(b) away from the centre

(c) along a tangent

(d) will stop.

**Answer-8 :-**

The option **(c) along a tangent** ** **is correct

**Explanation:**

The stone will move in a circle and the direction of velocity at any instant is always along the tangent at that point. Therefore, the stone will move along the tangent to the circle at a point where the string breaks.

**Question-9 :-**

A coin placed on a rotating turntable just slips. If it is placed at a distance of 4 cm from the centre. If the angular velocity of the turntable is doubled, it will just slip at a distance of

(a) 1 cm

(b) 2 cm

(c) 4 cm

(d) 8 cm

**Answer-9 :-**

The option **(a) 1 cm** ** **is correct

**Explanation:**

Let the force of friction between the coin and the rotating turntable be *F*.

For the coin to just slip ,

we have : F = m ω²r

Here, m ω² r is the centrifugal force acting on the coin.

For constant ** F **and

**we have**

*m*,**: r∝1/ω²**

Therefore,

r′/r=(ω/ω′)**²**

⇒ r’ = 1 cm

**Question-10 :-**

A motorcycle is going on an over bridge of radius *R*. The driver maintains a constant speed. As the motorcycle is ascending on the over bridge, the normal force on it

(a) increases

(b) decreases

(c) remains the same

(d) fluctuates.

**Answer-10 :-**

The option **(a) increases** ** **is correct

**Explanation:**

** **

The normal force on the motorcycle , N = mgcosθ−mv²/R

As the motorcycle is ascending on the over bridge, *θ* decreases (from π/2 to 0).

So, normal force increases with decrease in *θ*.

**Question-11:-**

Three identical cars A, B and C are moving at the same speed on three bridges. The car A goes on a place bridge, B on a bridge convex upward and C goes on a bridge concave upward.
