A body travels 100m in first 2 seconds and 104 in the next 4 second.how far will it gimove in the next four second if the acceleration is uniform?

A body travels 100m in first 2 seconds and 104 in the next 4 second.how far will it move in the next four seconds if the acceleration is uniform?

A Problem from Motion

Sandeepan Asked:

“Q. Velocity of a moving particle is given by v = t2 – 4. Find out:-
(i) Time at which velocity is zero.
(ii) Acceleration at which t= 1s
(iii) What type of motion uniform or non-uniform.”



In the equation, put v=0 to find the time at which velocity equals zero

Differentiate the equation and then put t=1 to find acceleration at t=1s since a = dv/dt

The motion is non uniform as its velocity varies with time.

A Few Problems from Kinematics

  1. A body falling freely from rest has velocity v after it falls a height h . Calculate the distance it should fall down further for its velocity to become double
  2. A particle in uniform acceleration in a straight line has a speed of v m/s at position x meter is given by √(25-16x). What is the acceleration of the particle

Motion of a charge particle in an electric field – Numerical Problem

At t=0 a very small object with mass 0.400mg and charge +9.00μC is travelling at 125 m/s in the -x-direction. The charge is moving in a uniform electric field that is in the +y-direction and that has magnitude E= 895 N/C. The gravitational force on the particle can be neglected. How far is the particle from the origin at t= 7.99 ms.

Hint for solving the above problem:

displacement along X direction; x=-uxt=125 x 7.99/1000

Displacement along Y direction, y=0.5 ay t2



Just substitute the values and get the answer

Chemical effects of current

How much Ag can be deposited as uniform layer on a metallic vessel using 0.2 Ampere current passed through silver salt solution for 3 hours.(1 mol of Ag=108g)



Speed Velocity and acceleration

Sir ir it true or false – “the speed of particle remains constant.this means that no unbalanced force acts on it.” (Purshkar  asks)

Answer: If velocity remains constant, then we can say that no unbalanced force acts on it.

If a body moves with uniform speed with its direction changing with time, as in the case of uniform circular motion, the net unbalanced force is not zero, as a net force is required to change the direction of motion

Newton’s Laws of motion

First Law: Every body continues to be in its state of rest or state of uniform motion in a straight line unless an external force complels it to do so.

Second Law: The rate of change of momentum of a body is directly proportional to the net external force acting on it and the change in momentum takes place in the direction of motion

Third Law: To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
