b) \[2\pi rad\diagup s\]

c) \[\pi rad\diagup s\]

d) \[\frac{\pi}{60}rad\diagup s\]

Explanation:

a) 1.66 rad/s

b) 10.47 rad/s

c) 10.47 deg/s

d) 60 deg/s

Explanation:

3. A body of mass 100 g is rotating in a circular path
of radius r with constant velocity. The work done
in one complete revolution is

a) 100 rJ

b) \[ \left(r\diagup100\right) J\]

c) (100/r) J

d) Zero

Explanation: Work done in circular motion is always zero

4. A particle comes round a circle of radius 1 m once. The time taken by it is 10 sec. The average velocity of motion is

a) \[0.2\pi m\diagup s\]

b) \[2\pi m\diagup s\]

c) \[2m\diagup s\]

d) Zero

5. An unbanked curve has a radius of 60m . The maximum speed at which a car can make a turn if the coefficient of static friction is 0.75, is

a) \[2.1 m\diagup s\]

b) \[14 m\diagup s\]

c) \[21 m\diagup s\]

Explanation:

6. A wheel completes 2000 revolutions to cover the 9.5 km. distance. then the diameter of the wheel is

a) 1.5 m

b) 1.5 cm

c) 7.5 cm

d) 7.5 m

Explanation: Distance covered in ‘n’ revolution = n 2 \[\pi\] r = n \[\pi\] D

2000 \[\pi\] D = 9500 [As n = 2000, distance = 9500 m]

\[D = \frac{9500}{2000\times\pi} = 1.5 m\]

b) vr

c) \[vr^{2}\]

d) \[v \diagup r\]

Explanation: \[v^{2} \diagup r\]

9. A cylindrical vessel partially filled with water is
rotated about its vertical central axis. It’s surface
will

a) Rise equally

b) Rise from the sides

c) Rise from the middle

d) Lowered equally
