Work, Energy and Power- Objective Questions

These Objective Questions on Work, Energy, and Power (Class XI, Physics) will help you in preparing for different examinations like AIEEE, AIPMT, IIT, and other +2 level competitive exams, and will also help in many government exams that ask the basics of physics.

  • 100
  • 200
  • 400
  • 800
Click for Answer/Explanation


2. Two bodies of masses m1 and m2 are moving with the same kinetic energy. If P1 and P2 are their respective momentum, the ratio P1 P2 is equal to –

  • m1/m2
  • sqrt(m1/m2)
  • sqrt(m2/m1)
  • m2/m1
Click for Answer/Explanation


3. KE acquired by a mass m in traveling a certain distance d, starting from rest, under the action of a constant force F is?

  • Directly proportional to m

4. A simple pendulum with the bob of mass m and length x is held in position at an angle θ1 and then angle θ2 with the vertical. When released from these positions, speeds with which it passes the lowest positions are v1 & v2 respectively. Then, v1/v2 is-

  • 1-cos θ1/1-cos θ2
  • sqrt(1-cos θ1/1-cos θ2)
  • sqrt(2gx(1-cos θ1)/1-cos θ2)
  • sqrt((1-cos θ1)/2gx(1-cos θ2))
Click for Answer/Explanation

sqrt(1-cos θ1/1-cos θ2)

5. A U–238 nucleus originally at rest, decays by emitting an a-particle, say with a velocity of v m/s. The recoil velocity (in m/s) of the residual nucleus is?

  • -4v/234
  • v/234
  • v/4
  • 4v/238
