    An object is released from the top of a tower. Which of the following statement is correct about the time taken by the particle in falling through the successive distance of 1 m each? 

    • A.

      All will be equal

    • B.
    • C.
    • D.

      None of These

    Correct Answer
    C.
    Explanation
    Time taken by an object falling under gravity is given by to cover first n meter:Time taken by an object falling under gravity is given by to cover first (n+1) meter: ySo time taken by the object falling under gravity is given by to cover (n + 1)th meter:So the required ratio will be:

    A heavy stone is dropped into a well in which the water level is at depth H below the ground level. If the speed of the sound is ‘v’ then the time after which the splash is heard will be given by

    Correct Answer
    B.
    Explanation
    The time in which the sound of splash will be heard is equal to the total of the time taken by the stone to reach the water level & the time taken by the sound to come out of the well

    The height of a container is 1.5 m is being lifted up by a crane, with an acceleration of 2 m/s2. One second after the start, a bolt from the roof of the container starts falling. What will be the displacement of the bolt before touching the floor of the container?  

    • A.

      3/5

    • B.

      3/8

    • C.

      2/3

    • D.

      1/4

    Correct Answer
    D. 1/4
    Explanation
    From the diagram it is clear that when the ball has reached the floor of the elevator, some upward distance has been travelled by the elevator as well. The ball is falling under gravity whereas the lift has the acceleration ‘a’. The displacement of the ball X = H – X’. The ball is moving in the opposite direction of elevator then the displacement = – X = – (H – X’). At the time of release of ball let the velocity of elevator was v0 and at time T ball touches the floor of the elevator.
    For the motion of ball:
