## Physics in Irrigation

Somnath asked:

“water in a canal 6m wide n1.5m deep is flowing with a speed of 10km/hr.How much area will it irrigate in 30min if 8cm of standing water is need”

Answer (to be posted soon)

## Question on distance, acceleration and velocity

Two cars start simultaneously form rest at the same place. one accelerate uniformly as 0.5m/s until it reaches a speed of 60m/s which it maintains steadily, the other accelarate uniformly at the speed of 80m/s which it maintained steadily. calculate

1. How many seconds will elapse before the cars are levelled and each travelling at equal speed.

2. the distance travelled by either car this time.

## A question from kinematics – motion in one dimension

Natasha Sehgal Asked:

“A stone is thrown in a vertically upward direction with a velocity of 5m/s. If the acceleration of the stone during its motion is 10m/s^2 in the downward direction , what will be the height attained by the stone and how much time will it take to reach there?”

Answer:

Take,

u=5m/s

a= -10 m/s^{2}

v=0 at the topmost position

S= H_{max} = ?

The eqn of motion to use

v^{2} – u^{2} = 2aS

Which gives H = 1.25 m

From the eqn

v=u + at

t= 0.5 s
