## Motion Numericals Class 9 Physics – questions & answers [solved]

1) A boat has an acceleration of 4 m/s2. What would the final velocity of the boat be after 10 seconds if the initial velocity of the speedboat is 2 m/s?

Solution:

a = 4 m/s2
u = 2 m/s

t = 10 s

final velocity = v

v = u + at = 2 + 4×10 = 42 m/s

2) A vehicle has an acceleration of 10 m/s2. What would the final velocity of the vehicle be after 20 seconds if the initial velocity of the vehicle is 40 m/s? What is the displacement of the vehicle during the 20 s time interval?

Solution:

a = 10 m/s2
u = 40 m/s

t = 20 s

final velocity = v

v = u + at = 40 + 10×20 = 240 m/s
final velocity = 240 m/s

Displacement during the 20 s time interval = s

s = ut + (1/2)at2

=> s = 40×20 + (½)x10x202

=> s= 800 + 2000 = 2800 m

Displacement during the 10 s time interval = 2800 m

3) A child on a  flat board starts from rest and accelerates down a snow-covered hill at 1 m/s2. How long does it take the child to reach the bottom of the hill if it is 15.0 m away?

Solution: initial velocity u = 0
acceleration a = 1 m/s2
distance = s = 15 m
time taken t = ?

s= ut + (1/2)at2

As here, u = 0, so we can write:

s= (1/2)at2

=> t2 =(2 s /a ) = (2×15)/1 = 30
time t = 5.48 sec

4. A car starts from rest and accelerates at +2.50 m/s2 for a distance of 150.0 m. It then slows down with an acceleration of –1.50 m/s2 until the velocity is +10.0 m/s. Determine the total displacement of the car.

Solution:

First part:
displacement = s = 150 m

We need to find out the final velocity(v) of this accelerating part.

v2 = u2 + 2as
=> v2 = 0 + 2×2.5×150 = 750
=> v = 27.4 m/s

This velocity becomes the initial velocity of the second part of the journey.

Second part:

u = 27.4 m/s

a = -1.5 m/s2

v= 10 m/s

v2 = u2 + 2as
102 = 27.42 + 2.(-1.5).s
=> 100 = 750 – 3s

s= 650/3 = 216.7 m

Second part displacement = 216.7 m

Considering a straight-line journey without a change of direction,
total displacement = (150 + 216.7) m = 366.7 m

5. A car accelerates uniformly from a velocity of 21.8 m/s to a velocity of 27.6 m/s. The car travels 36.5 m during this acceleration.

a) What was the acceleration of the car?

b) Determine the time interval over which this acceleration occurred.

Solution:

a)

final velocity v = 27.6 m/s

initial velocity u = 21.8 m/s

distance traveled s=36.5 m

We will use this equation: v2 = u2 + 2as

a = ( v2 – u2) /(2s) = (27.62 – 21.82)/(2×36.5) = 3.92 m/s2

Acceleration = 3.92 m/s2

b) time interval over which this acceleration occurred = t

v = u + at

=> t = (v-u)/a = (27.6-21.8) / 3.92 = 1.48 seconds.
