  4. Acceleration


Q1. Differentiate between following:

  1. Distance& Displacement
  2. Uniform acceleration & Variable acceleration
  3. Speed& velocity

Q2. A bullet of mass 0.006 kg travelling at 120 m/s penetrates deeply into a fixed target and is brought to rest in 0.01 s. Calculate:

  1. The distance of penetration in the target, and
  2. The average retarding force exerted on the bullet.

Q3. Derive an expression for the distance covered in the nth second by a body moving with uniform acceleration.

Q4. A train is moving with a velocity of 90 km/h. When the brakes are applied, the retardation produced is 0.5 m/s2. Find (a) the velocity after 10s (b) The time taken by the train to come to rest.
