#### Question

Two stones are thrown up simultaneously from the edge of a cliff 200 m high with initial speeds of 15 m/s and 30 m/s. Verify that the graph shown in Fig. 3.27 correctly represents the time variation of the relative position of the second stone with respect to the first. Neglect air resistance and assume that the stones do not rebound after hitting the ground. Take *g *= 10 m/s^{2}. Give the equations for the linear and curved parts of the plot.

A ball is dropped from a height of 90 m on a floor. At each collision with the floor, the ball loses one tenth of its speed. Plot the speed-time graph of its motion between *t *= 0 to 12 s.

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 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?
