Vertical Motion

A boy is standing on top of a tower of height 85m and throws a ball in the vertically upward direction with a certain speed. If 5.25 secs later he hears the ball hitting the ground, then the speed with which the boy threw the ball is ( take g=10m/s2, speed of sound in...

Speed of ball thrown down from height

A boy is standing on top of a tower of height 85m and throws a ball in the vertically upward direction with a certain speed. If 5.25 secs later he hears the ball hitting the ground, then the speed with which the boy threw the ball is ( take g=910m/s2, speed of sound...

Motion under Constant Gravity

A person throws vertically up n balls per second with the same velocity. He throws a ball whenever the previous one is at its highest point. The height to which the balls rise is (a) g/n2 (b) 2gn (c) g/2n2 (d) 2gn2 Solution: We know v=u-gt. v is zero at the highest...
Motion of an Elevator

Motion of an Elevator

  An elevator of mass M is accelerated upwards by applying a force F. A mass m initially situated at a height of 1m above the floor of the elevator is falling freely. It will hit the floor of the elevator after a time equal to √(2M/F+mg) √(2M/F-mg) √2M/F...
