Explain translatory motion and give example of various type of translatory motion.

Translatory Motion: The in which a body moves along a line without any rotation is called translatory motion.
In translatory motion the line may be straight or curved.
Types of Translatroy Motion: There are three types of Translatory Motion.
(a) Circular motion (b) Linear motion (c) Random motion
(a) Circular Motion:
The motion of an object in a circular path is known as circular motion.
Examples:
(a) A bicycle or a car moving along a circular track.
(b) The riders in a moving ferries wheel have circular motion.
(b) Linear Motion:
Straight line motion of a body is known as its linear motion.
Examples:
(a) Aeroplane flying straight in air is an example of linear motion
(b) Objects falling vertically down is an example of linear motion
(c) Random Motion:
The disordered or irregular motion of an object is called random motion.
Example:
(a) The motion of insects and birds is random motion.
(b) The motion of dust or smoke particles in the air is random motion.

Which of the following is obtained from speed-time graph of a body?

(i) Initial speed
(ii) Final speed
(iii) Distance covered in time t
(iv) Acceleration of motion
All the given factors can be obtained from speed-time graph of a body.

Can a body moving at a constant speed have acceleration?

Yes body moving at constant speed has acceleration if it changes its direction or moving in a circular path.

How do riders in a ferris wheel possess translatory motion but not rotator motion?

In circular motion the point about which a body goes around, is outside the body. In rotatory motion the line about which a body moves is passing through the body itself.
Riders in a ferris wheel have rotatory motion because the axis about which a rider moves is passing through the rider itself.

Why vector quantities cannot be added and subtracted like scalar quantities?

Scalar quantities are the quantities which can be described completely by magnitude while vector quantities need direction and magnitude for their complete description.
The quantities having direction cannot be added and subtracted like scalar quantities.

How are vector quantities important to us in our daily life?

Vector quantities are important to us in our daily life because a vector can be described completely by magnitude along with its direction. Examples of vectors are velocity, displacement, force, momentum, torque, etc. It would be meaningless to describe vectors without direction. For example, distance of a place from reference point is insufficient to locate that place. The direction of that place from reference point is also necessary to locate it.

What is meant by kinematics?

Kinematics is the study of an object without discussing the cause of motion.

Define rest and motion.

Rest:
A body is said to be at rest, if it does not change its position with respect to its surroundings.

A moving bus on the road is in a state of motion.

Differentiate between rotatory motion and vibratory motion.

Rotatory Motion:
The spinning motion of a body about its axis is called its rotatory motion.
The top spins about its axis passing through it and thus it possesses rotatory motion.
An axis is a line around which a body rotates.
Vibratory Motion:
To and fro motion of a body about its mean position is known as vibratory motion.
Consider the motion of a baby in a swing. It moves back and forth about its mean position. The motion of the baby repeats from one extreme to other extreme with the swing.

Differentiate between scalar and vector.

Scalars:
• A Scalar is described completely by its magnitude only.
• Mass, length, time, speed, volume, work and energy are some examples of scalars.
Vectors:
• A vector is described completely by its magnitude and direction.
• Velocity, displacement, force, momentum and torque are some example of vectors.

Differentiate between speed and velocity.

Speed:
The distance covered by an object in unit time is called its speed.
Speed can be calculated by given formula.
Speed = distance/time
Speed is a scalar quantity. Because it can be described completely by a magnitude only.
Velocity:
The rate of displacement of a body is called its velocity.
Velocity can be calculated by given formula.
Velocity = displacement/time taken
Velocity is a vector quantity. Because it can be described completely by a magnitude and direction.

• Displacement is a vector quantity because it can be completely described with the help of magnitude and direction.

Define Uniform acceleration.

A body has uniform acceleration if it has equal changes in velocity in equal intervals of time however short the interval may be.

Define acceleration.

Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity of a body.
Acceleration can be calculated as.
Acceleration = Change in velocity/ time taken
Unit of acceleration is meter per second per second ms-2

A sprinter complete its 100m race in 12 seconds. Find its average speed.

Total distance = 100m
Total time = 12 sec
Average speed = Total distance/Total time
Average speed = 8.33 ms-1

Differentiate between variable and uniform speed.

Variable:
A body has variable speed if it covers equal distance in unequal interval of time however short the interval may be.
Uniform speed:
A body has uniform speed if it covers equal distance in equal interval of time however short the interval may be. OR If the speed of a body does not vary and has the same value then the body is said to posses uniform speed.

A train is moving at a speed of 36kmh-1. What will be its velocity in ms-1?

36kmh-1 = 36 x 1000/3600ms-1 = 10ms-1

What is meant by positive and negative acceleration?

Positive acceleration:
Acceleration of a body is positive if its velocity increases with time.
The direction of this acceleration is the same in which the body is moving without change in its direction.
Negative Acceleration:
Acceleration of a body is negative if velocity of the body decreases.
The direction of negative acceleration is opposite to the direction in which body is moving.

Uniform speed:
A body has uniform speed if it covers equal distance in equal interval of time however short the interval may be. OR If the speed of a body does not vary and has the same value then the body is said to posses uniform speed.

Position: Position means the location of a certain place or object from a reference point. OR The term position describes the location of a place or a point with respect to some reference point called origin. Explanation: If someone wants to describe the position of his/her school from home Let the school be represented by S and home by H as shown in the figure.
The position of the school from home will be the distance and is represented by a straight line HS in the direction from H to S as shown in given figure below.

How can vector quantities be represented graphically?

Graphically a vector can be represented by a line segment with as arrow head. In the given figure the line AB with arrowhead at B represents a vector v. The length of the AB gives the magnitude of vector v on a selected scale.
While the direction of the line from A to B gives the direction of the vector v.

Sketch a distance-time graph for a body starting from rest. How will you determine the speed of a body from this graph?

Object is moving with constant speed.
The speed of an object is said to be constant if it covers equal distance in equal interval of time. The distance-time graph as shown in the figure is a straight line. It slope gives the speed of the object. Consider two points A and B on the graph: Speed of the object = Slope of line AB.
Speed of object = distance EF/time CD
Speed of object= 20/10=2ms-1
The speed found from the graph is 2ms-1.

What would be the shape of a speed-time graph of a body moving with variable speed?

When a body is moving with variable speed, the shape of its speed-time graph is not a straight line. You Can Learn and Gain more Knowledge through our Online Quiz and Testing system Just Search your desired Preparation subject at Gotest.
