**MP Board Class 9 Science Chapter 8 Question 2.**

A farmer moves along the boundary of a square field of side 10 m in 40 s. What will be the magnitude of displacement of the farmer at the end of 2 minutes 20 seconds?

Answer:

Suppose farmer starts from A of the square field.

Now, he covered 10 m in 40 sec.

Now, 2 minutes 20 seconds =140 sec.

So, he cover in 140 seconds = \(\frac { 10 }{ 40 }\) × 140 m

= \(\frac { 140 }{ 4 }\)m

= 35 m.

Now, in square field = 35m

AB + BC + CD + DE (\(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)AD)

So, he will reach at E.

Then, his displacement is AE = 5 m.

During an experiment, a signal from a spaceship reached the ground station in five minutes. What was the distance of the spaceship from the ground station? The signal travels at the speed of light, that is 3 × 10^{8} m/s.

Answer:

Time taken by signal to reach ground station = 5 minutes

= 5 × 60 sec.

= 300 seconds.

Speed of the signal = 3 × 10^{8} m/s.

∴ Distance between spaceship and ground station = speed × time

= 3 × 10^{8} × 300

= 9 × 10^{10 }m.

Question 1.

When will you say a body is in

- Uniform acceleration?
- Non-uniform acceleration?

Answer:

- A body is in uniform acceleration if its velocity changes uniformly with equal intervals of time. Example: Freely falling object.
- A body is in non-uniform acceleration if its velocity changes non-uniformly with equal intervals of time. Example: A bus running in a city.

**Class 9 Science Ch Motion Question Answer Question 2.**

A bus decreases its speed from 80 km/h^{-1} to 60 km/h^{-1} in 5 s. Find the acceleration of the bus.

Answer:

Initial velocity of the bus, u = 80 km/h

= \(\frac { 80\times 100 }{ 60\times 60 } \) m/s

u = \(\frac { 800 }{ 36} \) m/s

Final velocity of the bus, v = 60 km/h

= \(\frac { 60\times 100 }{ 60\times 60 } \) m/s

v = \(\frac { 600 }{ 36 } \) m/s

Time taken by bus to change its speeds, t = 5 seconds

∴ Acceleration, a = \(\frac { v-u }{ t } \)

= \(\frac { 600 }{ 36 } \) – \(\frac { 800 }{ 36 } \) ÷ 5

= \(\frac { 600-800 }{ 36 } \) ÷ 5

= \(\frac { 200 }{ 36 } \) × \(\frac { 1 }{ 5 } \) m/s^{2}

= \(\frac { -10 }{ 9 } \) m/s^{2}

a = -1.11 m/s^{2}.

Question 3.

A train starting from a railway station and moving with uniform acceleration attains a speed of 40 km/h^{-1} in 10 minutes. Find its acceleration.

Answer:

Initial velocity, u = 0

Final velocity, v = 40 km/h

= \(\frac { 40\times 1000 }{ 60\times 60 } \) m/s

= \(\frac { 400 }{ 36 } \) m/s

= \(\frac { 200 }{ 18 } \) m/s.

Time taken, t = 10 minutes

= 10 × 10 seconds = 100 seconds

a = \(\frac { v-u }{ t } \)

= \(\frac { 200 }{ 18 } \) – 0 ÷ 100

= \(\frac { 200 }{ 18 } \) ÷ 100

= \(\frac { 200 }{ 18 } \) × \(\frac { 1 }{ 100 } \) m/s^{2}

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 9 } \) m/s^{2}

a = 0.018 m/s^{2}.

**Motion Intext Questions Page No. 109 – 110**

Question 1.

A bus starting from rest moves with a uniform acceleration of 0.1 m/s^{2} for 2 minutes. Find

(a) the speed acquired,

(b) the distance travelled.

Answer:

Initial velocity, u = 0

Acceleration, a = 0.1 m/s^{2}

Time, t = 2 min = 2 × 60 seconds

= 120 seconds

(a) Velocity, v = ?

We know, v = u + at

v = 0 + 0.1 × 120 m/s

= 12 m/s.

(b) Distance, s = ?

We Know, s = ut + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) at^{2}

= 0 × 120 + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 0.1 × 120 × 120

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × \(\frac { 0.1 }{ 10 }\) × 120 × 120 m

= 720 m.

**Class 9 Science Chapter 8 Motion Question 2.**

A train is travelling at a speed of 90 km/h^{-1}. Brakes are applied so as to produce a uniform acceleration of – 0.5 m/s^{2}. Find how far the train wilt go before it is brought to rest.

Answer:

Initial velocity, u = 90 km/h

= \(\frac { 90\times 5 }{ 18 } \) m/s

= 25 m/s

Final velocity, v = 0

Acceleration, a = -0.5 m/s^{2}.

Distance, s = ?

We know,

v^{2} = u^{2} + 2as

0^{2} = (25)^{2} + 2 × (-0.5) × s

0 = 625 – 1 × s

= 625 – 1 × s

= 625 – s

∴ s = 625 m.

∴ Distance travelled by the train = 625 m.

**Class 9 Science Chapter 8 Question Answer Question 3.**

A trolley while going down an inclined plane, has an acceleration of 2 cm/s^{2}. What will be its velocity in 3 s after the start?

Answer:

Acceleration, a = 2 cm/s^{2}

Time, t = 3 sec.

Initial velocity, u = 0

Final velocity, v = ?

Now, v= u + at

v = 0 + 2 × 3

= 6 cm/s.

Question 4.

A racing car has a uniform acceleration of 4 m/s^{2}. What distance will it cover in 10 s after start?

Answer:

Acceleration, a = 4 m/s^{2}

Time, t = 10 sec,

Initial velocity, u = 0

Distance, s = ?

Now, s = ut + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) at^{2}

s = 0 × 10 + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 4 × (10)^{2}

s = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 4 × 100 m

s = 200 m.

So, the distance covered is 200 m.

**Class 9th Science Chapter 8 Question Answer Question 5.**

A stone is thrown in a vertically upward direction with a velocity of 5 m/s^{-1}. If the acceleration of the stone during its motion is 10 m/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:

Initial velocity, u = 5 m/s

Final velocity, v = 0

Acceleration, a = -10 m/s^{2} (∴ It is from opposite direction)

Height attained, s = ?

Time taken, t = ?

Now, V^{2} = u^{2} + 2 as

(0)^{2} = (5)^{2} + 2 × (-10) × s

0 = 25 – 20s

⇒ 20s = 25

∴ s = \(\frac { 25 }{ 20 }\) = \(\frac { 5 }{ 4 }\) = 1025m

Now, v = u + at

0 = 5 + (-10) × t

0 = 5 – 10 × t

-5 = -10 × t

∴ t = \(\frac { -5 }{ -10 }\) = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) = 0.5 sec

So, height attained by the stone is 1.25 m and time taken to reach there is 0.5 sec.

### Motion NCERT Textbook Exercises

Question 1.

An athlete completes one round of a circular track of diameter 200 m in 40 s. What will be the distance covered and the displacement at the end of 2 minutes 20 s?

Answer:

Diameter of the track = 200 m

So, radius = \(\frac { 200 }{ 2 }\) m

= 100m

Circumference = 2πr

= 2 × \(\frac { 22 }{ 7 }\) × 100 m

= \(\frac { 4400 }{ 7 }\) m.

Now, athlete covers 200 m in 40 s.

So, rounds covered in 40 seconds = 1

Rounds covered in 1 sec = \(\frac { 1 }{ 40 }\)

Rounds covered in 140 sec = \(\frac { 1 }{ 40 }\) × 140

= 3.5 rounds

So, distance covered = 3.5 × circumference

= \(\frac { 3.5 }{ 10 }\) × \(\frac { 4400 }{ 7 }\) m

= 2200 m.

And, displacement after 3.5 rounds

= Diameter of track

= 200 m.

**Chapter 8 Class 9 Science Question 2.**

Joseph jogs from one end A to the other end B of a straight 300 m road in 2 minutes 30 seconds and then turns around and jogs 100 m back to point C in another 1 minute. What are Joseph’s average speeds and velocities in jogging (a) from A to B and (b) from A to C?

Answer:

(a) A to B,

Time taken, t = 2 min, 30 sec

= 150 sec.

= \(\frac { 300 }{ 150 }\) m/s = 2 m/s

= \(\frac { 300 }{ 150 }\) m/s = 2 m/s.

(b) A to C,

Time taken = Time from A to B + Time from B to C

= 2 min 30 sec + 1 min

= 150 sec + 60 sec

= 210 sec.

Total distance covered (AB + BC) = (300 + 100) m

= 400 m

Displacement = AC = (300 – 100) m

= 200 m

= \(\frac { 400 }{ 210 }\) m/s = 1.9 m/s

= \(\frac { 200 }{ 210 }\) m/s = 0.95 m/s.

**Motion Chapter Class 9 Questions And Answers Question 3.**

Abdul, while driving to school, computes the average speed for his trip to be 20 kmh^{-1}. On his return trip along the same route, there is less traffic and the average speed is 30 kmh^{-1}. What is the average speed for Abdul’s trip?

Answer:

Let the distance between Abdul’s home and school = x km.

Lets time taken from home to school = t_{1 }hr.

and time taken from school to home = t_{2 }hr.

Now,

∴ t_{1} = \(\frac { x }{ 20 }\) hr.

t_{2} = \(\frac { x }{ 30 }\) hr.

Now,

∴ Average Speed = \(\frac { 120 }{ 5 }\) 24 km/h.

Question 4.

A motorboat starting from rest on a lake accelerates in a straight line at a constant rate of 3.0 ms^{-2} for 8.0 s. How far does the boat travel during this time?

Answer:

Initial velocity, u = 0

Acceleration, a = 3.0 m/s^{2}

= 3 m/s^{2}

Time, t = 8 sec

Now,

s = ut + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) at^{2}

s = 0 × 8 + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 3 × (8)^{2}

= 0 + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 3 × 64

s = 96 m.

∴ Distance Travelled by Boat is 96 m.

**Chapter 8 Science Class 9 Question 5.**

A driver of a car travelling at 52 kmh^{-1} applies the brakes and accelerates uniformly in the opposite direction. The car stops in 5 s. Another driver going at 34 kmh^{-1} in another car applies his brakes slowly and stops in 10 s. On the same graph paper, plot the speed versus time graphs for the two cars. Which of the two cars travelled farther after the brakes were applied?

Answer:

We have,

Speed of first driver = 52 km/h

= \(\frac { 52\times 1000 }{ 60\times 60 } \) m/s = 14.4 m/s

Speed of second driver = 3 km/h

= \(\frac { 3\times 1000 }{ 60\times 60 } \) m/s = 0.83 m/s

Now, distance covered by first driver = Area of ΔAOB

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × OA × OB

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 14.4 × 5 = 36.1 m

Distance covered by second driver = Area of ΔMON

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × OM × ON

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × O.83 × 10 = 4.16 m

So, first driver covers more distance.

- B travelled around 5.5 km when it passes C.

**Class 9 Science Chapter Motion Question 7.**

A ball is gently dropped from a height of 20 m. If its velocity increases uniformly at the rate of 10 ms^{-2}, with what velocity will it strike the ground? After what time will it strike the ground?

Answer:

Distance, s = 20 m

Initial velocity, u = 0

Acceleration, a = 10 m/s^{2}

Now, s = ut +\(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) at^{2}

20 = 0 × t + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 10 × t^{2}

20 = 5 × t^{2}

∴ t^{2} = \(\frac { 20 }{ 5 }\) = 4

∴ t = 2 sec.

Also, v = u + at

v = 0 + 10 × 2

y = 20 m/s.

So, it will strike the ground after 2 seconds with the velocity of 20 m/s.

Question 8.

Answer:

(a) The distance travelled by car in first 4 seconds

= Area of triangular like region OAB

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × AB × OB = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 6.9 × 4

= 12 m (approximately).

(b) Part of the graph after 5.5 seconds shows the uniform motion.

**Motion Long Answer Type Questions**

Question 1.

How can we get speed from a distance-time graph?

Answer:

Let us assume that an object moves with a uniform speed. The distance-time graph will be a straight line.

Let d_{1} be the distance covered in time t_{1}.

Let d_{2} be the distance covered in time t_{2}.

∴ d_{2 }– d_{1} will be the distance covered in t_{2} – t_{2}.

But, here \(\frac { BC }{ AC }\) = slope of the graph.

Conclusion:

To find the speed from a distance – time graph, we can get its slope which is equal to the speed of the object.

(c) Derive the unit for acceleration.

Answer:

(a) Motion: An object is said to be in motion when its position changes with time. We describe the location of an object by specifying a reference point. Motion is relative. The total path covered by an object is said to be the distance travelled by it.

(b) There are two types of motion: Uniform motion and non-uniform motion

- Uniform motion: When an object covers equal distances in equal intervals of time, it is said to be in uniform motion.
- Non-uniform motion: Motion where object cover unequal distances in equal intervals of time.

(c) Acceleration, ‘a’ is change in velocity per unit time.

Question 4.

(a) What is uniform circular motion?

(b) An athlete runs on a circular track, whose radius is 50 m with a constant speed. It takes 50 seconds to reach point B from starting point A. Find:

- the distance covered.
- the displacement.
- the speed.

Answer:

(a) When a body moves in a circular path with uniform speed, its motion is called uniform circular motion.

(b) Radius = 50 m

Time = 50 s

The distance covered by an athlete A to B i.e., semicircle of the track

∴ Circumference = 2πr

circumference half of = πr.

Question 5.

Derive the equation for velocity – time relation (v = u + at) by graphical method.

Answer:

Let, the initial velocity of a body be, u = OA = CD.

The final velocity of a body be, v = OE = CB

Time, t = OC = AD

AD is parallel to OC

BC = BD + DC

= BD + OA

v = BD + u

∴ BD =v – u …….. (1)

In a velocity-time graph, slope gives acceleration.

∴ a = \(\frac { BD }{ AD }\) = \(\frac { BD }{ OC }\) = OC = t

we get, a = \(\frac { BD }{ t }\)

∴ BD = at …….. (2).

Question 6.

A car accelerates uniformly from 20 km/h to 35 km/h in 5 s. Calculate (i) the acceleration and (ii) the distance covered by the car in that time.

Answer:

u =20 km/h = 5.5 m/s

v =35 km/h = 9.72 m/s

t = 5 s

a = \(\frac { v-u }{ t } \)

= \(\frac { 9.7-5.5 }{ 5 } \)

a = \(\frac { 4.2 }{ 5 } \)

= 0.84 m/s^{2}.

(ii) The distance covered by the car s = ut + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) at^{2
}= 5.5 × 5 + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)(0.84)(5)^{2}

= 27.5 + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 0.84 × 25

Answer:

Uniform acceleration – A body travels equal distances in equal intervals of time.

Non-uniform acceleration – A body travels unequal distances in equal intervals of time.

Uniform motion or zero acceleration A body moves with constant speed in same line.

Question 8.

How can you get the distance travelled by an object from its speed-time graph?

Answer:

Suppose an object is moving with a same speed v, the distance covered by this object when it was at (point A) t_{1} to t_{2} is:

AB = t_{2 }– t_{1}

AD = BC = v

= AD. AB

∴ s = Area of rectangle ABCD

∴ To find the distance travelled by a body from its speed – time graph, we need to find the area enclosed by the graph.

Question 1.

A blacksmith strikes a nail with a hammer of mass 500 g moving with a velocity of 20 ms^{-1}. The hammer comes to rest in 0.02 s after striking the nail. Calculate the force exerted by the nail on the hammer.

Answer:

m = 500 g = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) kg

u = 20 ms^{-1} , v = 0

t = 0.02 s, F = ?

Therefore, force exerted by nail on the hammer = 500 N.

**Motion Value Based Question**

Question 1.

A jeep was moving at a speed of 120 km/h on an highway. All of a sudden tyre of the jeep got punctured and burst The driver of the jeep did not apply sudden brakes but he slowed down its speed and finally stopped it at the road side. All the passengers in the jeep were shocked but happy with the driver’s decison.

- What would have happened if the driver applied sudden brakes?
- On applying brakes in which direction would the passengers fall?
- What value of driver is reflected in this act?

Answer:

- If the driver would have applied sudden brakes, then all the passengers would get hurt and even other vehicles moving on the highway would have collided with this jeep from behind.
- On applying brake, the passengers would fall in the forward direction.
- The driver showed the presence of mind, concern and responsible behaviour and quick decision taking capability.
