## State and Prove Impulse Momentum Theorem with derivation of equation

In this post, we will State and Prove the Impulse Momentum Theorem with the derivation of the equation. As evident, this theorem or principle is related to impulse and momentum. Hence a prior knowledge of these two will help.Related study links are provided here: Read about Momentum and here you can read about Impulse as […]

## Solution of Physics Numericals for class 9 (set 1 Q14)

Problem Statement A body of mass 500 g, initially at rest, is acted upon by a force which causes it to move a distance of 4 m in 2 sec. Calculate the force applied. Solution: mass=m = 500 g = 0.5 kg Initial velocity = u = 0 Distance travelled = s=4 m Time duration […]

## Solution of Physics Numericals for class 9 (set 1 Q11)

Problem Statement A force acts for 10 s on a stationary body of mass 100 kg after which the force ceases to act. The body moves through a distance of 100 m in the next 5 s. Calculate (i) the velocity acquired by the body, (ii) the acceleration produced by the force, and (iii) the […]

## Physics Numericals class 9 (CBSE/ICSE)–problem set2

Here we present another set of physics numerical for class 9. You can also get the solutions for this set of physics numerical for class 9. The Links to the solution are given beside the problems. You can try first try and then check the solutions. Or you can also directly refer to the solutions […]

## Friction definition | contact force as the cause of friction

Friction / Friction definition: If we either slide or attempt to slide a body over a surface, the motion is resisted by a bonding (cold-weld) between the body and the surface. The resistance is considered to be a force called either the frictional force or simply friction. This force is directed along the surface, opposite […]

## Newton’s Second Law and equation of Force

Newton’s Second Law states that the rate of change of momentum of a body is directly proportional to the net force applied on it, and this change in momentum takes place in the direction of the applied force. Mathematically it can be stated this way: F∝ (mV-mU)/t. Here, F is the net force acting on the […]

## Physics problems with pseudo force and solutions

Physics problems with pseudo force with solutions- these problems are going to be related to the noninertial frame of reference. Let’s solve an interesting numerical. A smooth inclined plane with an angle of inclination 30 o is moving with a constant acceleration a (as shown in the figure). When a block is placed on the […]

## Contact Forces between blocks – Application of Newton’s laws

Application of newton’s laws: Newton’s laws of motion give us concepts of force (first law), measurement of force with its equation (second law), and the reaction of force (3rd law). Today we will discuss an interesting topic of mechanics – the application of Newton’s laws. It will cover a few interesting applications of Newton’s Laws […]

## Pushing a car, Newton’s 3rd Law and Friction

Hope you have seen people pushing their car when it’s not starting due to some issue. When someone is pushing a car or something like that, he first pushes the ground or floor obliquely backwards with his feet. Following the ‘3rd law of Newton‘ the ground also exerts an equal and opposite force obliquely on […]

## Freefall in physics

In this post, we will find out (a) how to find the weight of a freely falling body (b) How the velocity of a freely falling body changes every second if we ignore air drag force (air resistance)? (c) Why do we feel weightless during freefall (d) Kinetic energy of a body under free fall (e) Applicability of Law of conservation of energy for free fall (e) how distance traveled per second varies
