#### Question

A three-wheeler starts from rest, accelerates uniformly with 1 m s^{–2} on a straight road for 10 s, and then moves with uniform velocity. Plot the distance covered by the vehicle during the n^{th }second (n = 1,2,3….) versus n. What do you expect this plot to be during accelerated motion: a straight line or a parabola?

A player throws a ball upwards with an initial speed of 29.4 m s^{–1}.

(a) What is the direction of acceleration during the upward motion of the ball?

(b) What are the velocity and acceleration of the ball at the highest point of its motion?

(c) Choose the *x *= 0 m and *t *= 0 s to be the location and time of the ball at its highest point, vertically downward direction to be the positive direction of *x*-axis, and give the signs of position, velocity and acceleration of the ball during its upward, and downward motion.

(d) To what height does the ball rise and after how long does the ball return to the player’s hands? (Take *g *= 9.8 m s^{–2} and neglect air resistance).

Two trains A and B of length 400 m each are moving on two parallel tracks with a uniform speed of 72 km h^{–1} in the same direction, with A ahead of B. The driver of B decides to overtake A and accelerates by 1 m/s^{2}. If after 50 s, the guard of B just brushes past the driver of A, what was the original distance between them?

A car moving along a straight highway with a speed of 126 km h^{–1} is brought to a stop within a distance of 200 m. What is the retardation of the car (assumed uniform), and how long does it take for the car to stop

Figure gives the *x-t *plot of a particle executing one-dimensional simple harmonic motion. Give the signs of position, velocity and acceleration variables of the particle at *t *= 0.3 s, 1.2 s, – 1.2 s.

A boy standing on a stationary lift (open from above) throws a ball upwards with the maximum initial speed he can, equal to 49 m/s. How much time does the ball take to return to his hands? If the lift starts moving up with a uniform speed of 5 m/s and the boy again throws the ball up with the maximum speed he can, how long does the ball take to return to his hands?
