6. The total work done on a particle is equal to the change in its kinetic energy. This is applicable-

  • Always
  • Only if the conservative forces are acting on it
  • Only in inertial frames
  • Only when pseudo forces are absent
Click for Answer/Explanation

Always

7. Potential energy is defined – 

  • Only in conservative fields
  • As the negative of work done by conservative forces
  • As the negative of work done by external forces when ΔK = 0
  • All of these
Click for Answer/Explanation

Only in conservative fields

9. Two springs have force constants K1 and K2 (K1 > K2). Each spring is extended by the same force F. If their elastic potential energy is E1 and E2 then E1/E2 is?

  • K1 / K2
  • K2 / K1
  • v(K2 / K1)
  • v(K1 / K2)
Click for Answer/Explanation

K2 / K1

10. An unloaded bus can be stopped by applying brakes on a straight road after covering a distance x. Suppose, the passenger add 50% of its weight as the load and the braking force remains unchanged, how far will the bus go after the application of the brakes?
