Spherical Mirror Problem

A rear view mirror used in a bus has a radius of curvature 3.5 m. If the driver of the bus locates a car at 10.0m behind the bus, find the position, nature and size of the image of the car. Ans: f = r/2=-1.75 m u=-10m v=?

A Numerical Problem from Kinematics

A car starts motion from rest at uniform acceleration of 2m/sec 2 for 3 seconds, and then it maintains a constant speed for 2 seconds.Then the breaks are used to decelerate the car uniformly to rest during a time of 3 seconds. Draw the graph representing the journey of the car then calculate 1)the maximum speed … Continue reading A Numerical Problem from Kinematics

A simple numerical on momentum

Car mass is 1200 kg moving velocity is 108 km/hr. On applying brakes velocity reduced to 36 km/hr. Find change in momentum? (posted by Aditi) Answer: m=1200 kg u=108 x 5/18=30m/s v=36×5/18=10m/s Change in momentum = m(v-u) = 1200 x (30-10)=1200 ...
