Laws of Motion Quiz

1. A ship of mass 3×107 kg initially at rest, is pulled by a force of 5×104 N through a distance of 3 m. Assuming that the resistance due to water is negligible, the speed of the ship is

 
 
 
 

2. A block of mass 0.1 Kg is held against a wall applying a horizontal force of 5 N on the block. If the coefficient of friction between the block and the wall is 0.5, the magnitude of the frictional force acting on the block is

 
 
 
 

3. A car is moving in a circular horizontal track of radius 10 m with a constant speed of 10 m/s. A plumb bob is suspended from the roof of the car by a light rigid rod. The angle made by the rod with the vertical is (Take g= 10 m/s²)

 
 
 
 

4. During paddling of a bicycle, the force of friction exerted by the ground on the two wheels is such that it acts

 
 
 
 

5. A block of mass 2 Kg rests on a rough inclined plane making an angle of 30° with the horizontal. The coefficient of static friction between the block and the plane is 0.7. The frictional force on the block is
