#### Question 1. Define a contact Force.

Answer:  contact force is any force that occurs as a result of two objects making contact with each other.

#### Question 2. Define a non-contact Force.

Answer: A non-contact force is a force applied to an object by another body that is not in direct contact with it. Non-contact forces come into play when objects do not have physical contact between them or when a force is applied without any interaction.

#### Question 3. Classify the following amongst contact and non – contact forces:

(a) Frictional force

(b) Normal reaction force

(c) Force of tension in a string

(d) Gravitational force

(e) Electrostatic force

(f) Magnetic force

Contact force: (a) frictional force (b) normal reaction force (c) force of tension in a string

Non-contact force: (d) gravitational force (e) electric force (f) magnetic force

#### Question 4. Give one example in each case where :

(a) The force is of contact, and

(b) Force is at a distance

(a) Force exerted on two bodies during collision.

(b) Magnetic force between magnetic poles.

#### Question 5. State one factor on which the magnitude of a non-contact force depends. How does it depend on the factor stated by you?

The magnitude of non-contact force on two bodies depends on the distance of separation between them.

The force decreases as the distance of separation increases.

The force is inversely proportional to the square of the distance of separation.

#### Question 6. The separation between two masses is reduced to half. How is the magnitude of gravitational force between them affected?

The magnitude of gravitational force between two masses will become four times as gravitational force varies inversely as the square of distance of separation.

#### Question 7. Give one example in each of the following cases where a force:

(a)Stops a moving body.

(b)Moves a stationary body.

(c) Changes the size of a body.

(d) Changes the shape of a body.

(a)A fielder on the ground stops a moving ball by applying a force with his hands.

(b) The pull exerted by horse makes a cart moves.

(c) In a cycle pump, when the piston is lowered, the air is compressed to occupy a less volume.

(d) On pressing a piece of rubber, its shape changes.
