### Numerical on Apparent Weight

Ch-6 Newton Laws of Motion Class-11 ISC Nootan Solutions Kumar and Mittal Physics of Nageen Prakashan

**Question-11: The strings of a parachute can bear a maximum tension of 72 kg-weight. By what minimum acceleration can a person of 96 kg descend by means of this parachute?**

**Answer- **96g – 72g = 96a

=>24g = 96a

=>a = 24 / 96 g

=> g/4 = **2.45 m/s²**

**Question-12: A 70 kg person in sea is being lifted by a helicopter with the help of a rope which can bear a maximum tension of 100 kg-weight. With what maximum acceleration the helicopter should rise so that the rope may not break?**

**Answer- **In case of going up T>mg

∴ T -mg = ma

100g – 70g = 70a

30g = 70a

a = **4.2 m/s**

**Question-13: A lift of mass 400 kg is hung by a wire. Calculate the tension in the wire when the lift is (a) at rest, (b) moving upward with a constant velocity of 1.0 m/s, (c) moving upward with an acceleration of 2.0 m/s² and (d) moving downward with an acceleration of 2.0 m/s².**

**Answer- **(a) At rest T -400g = 0

=>T = mg = 400 kg x 9.8 = **3920 N.**

(b)again T -400g = 400 x 0 {a = 0}

=> T = 400 x 9.8 = **3920 N.**

(c) T – mg = ma

=>T = m (g + a) = 400 kg × (9.8 +2.0) m/s² = **4720 N.**

(d) mg – T = ma

=>T= m (g-a)= 400 kg × (9.8-2.0) m/s² = **3120 N**

**Question-14: A body of mass 10 kg is hung by a spring-balance in a lift. What would be the reading of the balance when (i) the lift is ascending with an acceleration of 2 m/s², (ii) descending with the same acceleration, (iii) descending with a constant velocity of 2 m/s? (g = 10 m/s²)**

**Answer- **(i) W’ – mg = ma

=>W’ = m(g +a) = 10 x 12 = **12 kg-wt**

(ii) W’ = m(g + a)

=>W’ = 10 x 8 = **8 kg-wt**

(iii) Since acceleration = 0

=>W’ = W = **10 kg-wt**

**Question-15: A lift is going upwards with an acceleration of 4.9 m/****s². ****What will be the apparent weight of a 60 kg man in the lift? What when the lift rises up with a uniform velocity of 4.9 m/s? If the rope of the lift is broken, then?**

**Answer- **W’/W = g + a / g

where W’ = apparent weight

W = real weight

a = acceleration

for going upward (a = +ve)

∴ W’ / W = 9.8 + 4.9 / 9.8 = 1.5

=>W’ = W x 1.5 = 60 x 1.5 =** 90 kg-wt**

for uniform velocity a = 0

=> W’ / 60 = g/ g => W’ = **60 kg-wt**

for lift falling freely a =(-9.8)

=> W’ / W = 9.8 – 9.8 / 9.8

=>W’ = **0.**
