Solution and Explanation


F = m(v-u)/t

Substitution of values in this relation gives F = 10 N

Final velocity can be calculated by

v= u+at = 13 m/s.


Use F = ma, and solve it


Initial velocity- 108 km/h = 30 m/s, Final Velocity = 0 m/s

Use Eq. of motion and find a = -30/4 = -7.5 m/s2

Now, F = ma

Solve and get F = -7500 N (-ve sign means, force by brakes applied is opposite of the direction of motion)


Δv= 4m/s, t= 4 s, m=1kg

Acceleration is given by, a= Δv/t

a= 1 m/s2

Now force is given by

F= ma

F= 1 N


F1=ma1 and F2= ma2

So, Ratio of force exerted is given by = F1/F2= ma1/ma2 = a1/a2=1:2


Impulse= Change in momentum

I = Δp = mΔv = 0.12 kgm/s

Also, Impulse = F×t

Put value of t and get Force.


By the law of conservation of momentum,

m1u1+m2u2 = m1v2+m2v2

On substituting the values


Or, v2=1.165 m/s

It will move in the same direction after the collision


Initial Momentum


p1=10 kgm/s = 10 kgm/s

Now after the collision, they stick together to move with velocity V

Final Momentum

p2= (m1+m2)V = 6V

Now As per law of conservation of Momentum as External force is absent

Initial Momentum = Final Momentum

p1 = p2

10 = 6V

V=1.67 m/s

Now p2 = 6V = 10 kgm/s


Here m= 60 kg, u1= 18 km/hr = 5 m/s, M=100 kg, u2=0

Let v be the velocity with car start travelling


mu1+Mu2 = (M+m)v

60×5 = 160v

v = 1.875 m/s


Here m = 50 kg, u1 = 5m/s, M = 20 kg, u2 =  1.5m/s


mu1 + Mu2 = (M+m)v


or v = 4 m/s
