1.   The mass of cyclist together with the bike is $90$ kg. Calculate the increase in kinetic energy if the speed increases from $6'0$ km/h to $12$ km/h.

$M$ = $m_c$ + $m_b$ = $90kg$ $\\$ $u$ = $6 km/h$ = $1.666 m/sec$ $\\$ $v$ = $12 km/h$ = $3.333$ m/sec $\\$ $increase$ in $K.E.$ = $\frac{1}{2}$ $Mv^2$ - $\frac{1}{2}$ $Mu^2$ $\\$ = $\frac{1}{2}$ $90$ $\times$ $(3.333)^2$ - $\frac{1}{2}$ $\times$ $90$ $\times$ $(1.66)^2$ = $494.5$ - $124.6$ = $374.8$ $\approx$ $375J$

$increase$ in $K.E.$ = $\frac{1}{2}$ $Mv^2$

2.   A block of mass $2.00$ kg moving at a speed of $10.0$ m/s accelerates at $3.00$ m/s for $5.00$ s. Compute its final kinetic energy.

$m_b$ = $2kg$ $\\$ $u$ = $10 m/sec$ $\\$ $a$ = $3 m/aec^2$ $\\$ $t$ = $5 sec$ $\\$ $v$ = $u$ + $at$ = $10$ + $3 I 5$ = $25 m/sec$ $\\$ $\therefore$ $F.K.E$ = $\frac{1}{2}$ $mv^2$ = $\frac{1}{2}$ $\times$ $2$ $\times$ $625$ = $625 J$

3.   A box is pushed through $4.0$ m across a floor offering $100$ N resistance. How much work is done by the resisting force ?

$F$ = $100 N$ $\\$ $S$ = $4m,$ $\theta$ = $0^o$ $\\$ $\omega$ = $F.S$ = $100$ $\times$ $4$ = $400$ $J$

4.   A block of mass $5.0$ kg slides down an incline of inclination $30°$ and length $10$ m. Find the work done by the force of gravity.

$m$ = $5kg$ $\\$ $\theta$ = $30^o$ $\\$ $S$ = $10$ $m$ $F$ = $mg$ $\\$ $ So$ $work$ $done$ $by$ $the$ $force$ $of$ $gravity$ $\\$ $\omega$ = $mgh$ = $5$ $\times$ $9.8$ $\times$ $5$ = $245$ $J$

5.   A constant force of $2.50$ N accelerates a stationary particle of mass $15$ g through a displacement of $2.50$ m. Find the work done and the average power delivered.

$F$ = $2.50N$ , $S$ = $2.5m,$ $m$ =$15g$ = $0.015kg$ $\\$ $So,$ $w$= $F$ $\times$ $S$ $\Rightarrow$ $a$ = $\frac{F}{m}$ = $\frac{2.5}{0.015}$ = $\frac{500}{3}$ $m/s^2$ $\\$ = $F$ $times$ $S$ $cos$ $0^o$ $($ $acting$ $alone$ $the$ $same$ $line$$)$ $\\$ $2.5$ $\times$ $2.5$ = $6.25$ $J$ $\\$ $Let$ $the$ $velocity$ $of$ $the$ $body$ $at$ $b$ = $U.$ $Applying$ $work$ $energy$ $principle$ $\frac{1}{2}$ $mv^2$ - $0$ = $6.25$ $\\$ $\Rightarrow$ $V$ = $\sqrt{\frac{6.25 \times 2}{0.015}}$ = $28.86$ $m/sec$ $\\$ $So$ $time$ $taken$ $to$ $travel$ $from$ $A$ $to$ $B.$ $\\$ $\Rightarrow$ $t$ = $\frac{v-u}{a}$ = $\frac{28.86 \times 3}{500}$ $\\$ $\therefore$ $Average$ $Power$ = $\frac{W}{t}$ = $\frac{6.25 \times 500}{(28.86) \times 3}$ = $36.1$

6.   A particle moves from a point $\vec{r_1}$ = (2 m)$\vec{i}$ + (3 m)$\vec{j}$ to another point $\vec{r_2}$ = (3 m)$\vec{i}$ + (2 m)$\vec{j}$ during which a certain force $\vec{F}$ = (5 N)$\vec{i}$ + (5 N)$\vec{j}$ acts on it. Find the work done by the force on the particle during the displacement.

$\vec{r_1}$ = $2\hat{i}$ + $3\hat{j}$ $\\$ $r_2$ = $3\hat{i}$ + $2\hat{j}$ $\\$ $So,$ $displacement$ $vector$ $is$ $given$ $by,$ $\\$ $\vec{r}$ = $\vec{r_1}$ - $\vec{r_2}$ $\Rightarrow$ $\vec{r}$ = $(3\hat{i} + 2\hat{j})$ - $(2\hat{i} + 3\hat{j})$ = $\hat{i} - \hat{j}$ $\\$ $So,$ $Work$ $done $ = $\vec{F}$ $\times$ $\vec{s}$ = $5 \times 1 + 5(-1) = 0$

$m_b = 2kg,$ $s = 40m,$ $a = 0.5m/sec^2$ $\\$ $So, force applied by the man on the box$ $\\$ $F = m_b a = 2 \times (0.5) = 1 N$ $\\$ $\omega = FS = 1 \times 40 = 40J$

10.   A block of mass $m$ is kept over another block of mass $M$ and the system rests on a horizontal surface (figure 8-E1). A constant horizontal force $F$ acting on the lower block produces an acceleration $\frac{F}{2(m + M)}$ in the system, the two blocks always move together. (a) Find the coefficient of kinetic friction between the bigger block and the horizontal surface. (b) Find the frictional force acting on the smaller block.

12.   A block of weight $100$ N is slowly slid up on a smooth incline of inclination $37°$ by a person. Calculate the work done by the person in moving the block through a distance of $2.0$ m, if the driving force is (a) parallel to the incline and (b) in the horizontal direction.

w = 100 N, $\theta$ = $37^o$, s = 2m $\\$ Force F = mg sin $37^o$ = 100 $\times$ 0.60 = 60 N $\\$ So, work done, when the force is parallel to incline. $\\$ w = Fs cos $\theta$ = 60 $\times$ 2 $\times$ cos $\theta$ = 120 J $\\$ In $\Delta$ABC AB = 2m $\\$ CB = $37^o$ $\\$ So, h = c = 1m $\\$ $\therefore$ work done when the force in horizontal direction $\\$ W = mgh = 100 $\times$ 1.2 = 120 J

If the friction coefficient between the table and the block is $0.1,$ how far does the block move before coming to rest ?

Given m = 250 g = 0.250 kg, $\\$ u = 40 cm/sec = 0.4 m/sec $\\$ $\mu$ = 0.1 , v = 0 $\\$ Here, $\mu$ R = ma {where a = deceleration} $\\$ a = $\frac{\mu R}{m} = \frac{\mu mg}{m} = \mu g = 0.1 \times 9.8 = 0.98 m/sec^2$ $\\$ S = $\frac{v^2 - u^2}{2a} = 0.082m = 8.2 cm$ $\\$ Again, work done against friction is given by $\\$ - w = $\mu$ RS cos $\theta$ $\\$ = 0.1 $\times$ 2.5 $\times$ 0.082 $\times$ 1($\theta = 0^o$ ) = 0.02 J $\\$ $\Rightarrow$ W = -0.02 J

h = 50 m, m = $1.8 \times 10^5$ kg/hr, P = 100 watt, $\\$ P.E. = mgh = $1.8 \times 10^5 \times 9.8 \times 50 = 882 \times 10^5 J/hr$ $\\$ Because, half the potential energy is converted into electricity, $\\$ Electrical energy $\frac{1}{2}$ P.E. = 441 $\times 10 ^5 J/hr$ $\\$ So, power in watt (J/sec) is given by = $\frac{441 \times 10^5}{3600}$ $\therefore$ number of 100 W lamps, that can be lit $\frac {441 \times 10^5}{3600 \times 100} = 122.5 \approx 122$

20.   A person is painting his house walls. He stands on a ladder with a bucket containing paint in one hand and a brush in other. Suddenly the bucket slips from his hand and falls down on the floor. If the bucket with the paint had a mass of $6.0$ kg and was at a height of $2.0$ m at the time it slipped, how much gravitational potential energy is lost together with the paint ?

m = 6kg, h = 2m $\\$ P.E. at a height '2m' = mgh 6 $\times$ 9.8 $\times$ 2 = 117.6 J $\\$ P.E. at floor = 0 $\\$ Loss in P.E. = 117.6 - 0 = 117.6 J $\approx$ 118 J

t = 1 min 57.56 sec = 11.56 sec, p = 400 w, s = 200m $\\$ p = $\frac{w}{t}$, work w = pt = $460 \times 117.56 J$ $\\$ Again W = FS = $\frac{460 \times 117.56}{200} = 270.3 \approx 270 N $

(a) Calculate the kinetic energy of Griffith-Joyner at her full speed. (b) Assuming that the track, the wind etc. offered an average resistance of one tenth of her weight, calculate the work done by the resistance during the run. (c) What power Griffith- Joyner had to exert to maintain uniform speed ?

S = 100 m, t = 10.54 sec, m = 50 kg $\\$ The motion can be assumed to be uniform because the time take for acceleration is minimum. $\\$ a) Speed v = $\frac{S}{t} = 9.487$ $e/s$ $\\$ So, K.E. = $\frac{1}{2} mv^2 = 2250J$ $\\$ b) Weight = mg = 490 J $\\$ given R = mg /10 = 49 J $\\$ So, work done against resistance $W_f = - RS = - 49 \times 100 = - 4900 J$ $\\$ c) To maintain her uniform speed , she has to expert 4900 j of energy to overcome friction $\\$ P = $\frac{W}{t} = 4900 / 10.54 = 465 W$

$ m_1 = 4 kg, m_2 = 1 kg, V_2=0.3m/sec, V_1= 2\times (0.3) = 0.6 m/sec $ $\\$ $(v_1 = 2x_2$ m this system) $\\$ h = 1m = height decent by 1 kg block $\\$ $s = 2 \times 1 = 2 m$ distance traveled by 4 kg block $\\$ $u = 0$ $\\$ Applying change in K.E. = work done (for the system)$\\$ $[(1/2)m_1v_1^2 + (1/2)m_2v_m^2] - 0=(-\mu R)S + m_2g \qquad$ $\\$ [R = 4g = 40 N] $\\$ $\Rightarrow \frac{1}{2} \times 4 \times (0.36) \times \frac{1}{2} \times 1 \times (0.09) = - \mu \times 40 \times 2 + 1 \times 40 \times 1$ $\\$ $\Rightarrow 0.72 + 0.045 = - 80 \mu + 10$ $\\$ $\Rightarrow \mu \frac{9.235}{80} = 0.12$

32.   A block of mass $100$ $g$ is moved with a speed of $5.0$ $m/s$ at the highest point in a closed circular tube of radius $10$ $cm$ kept in a vertical plane. The cross-section of the tube is such that the block just fits in it. The block makes several oscillations inside the tube and finally stops at the lowest point. Find the work done by the tube on the block during the process.

Given, m = 100g = 0.1 kg, v = 5m/sec, r = 10 cm. $\\$ work done by the block = total energy at A - total energy at B $\\$ $(1/2 mv^2 + mgh ) - 0$ $\\$ $\Rightarrow W = \frac{1}{2} mv^2 + mgh -0 = \frac{1}{2} \times (0.1) \times 25 + (0.1) \times 10 \times (0.2)$ [h = 2r = 0.2 m] $\\$ $\Rightarrow W = 1.25-0.2 \Rightarrow W = 1.45 J $ $\\$ So, the work done by the tube on the body is $\\$ $W_t = -1.45 J$

33.   A car weighing $1400$ $kg$ is moving at a speed of $54$ $km/h$ up a hill when the motor stops. If it is just able to reach the destination which is at a height of $10$ $m$ above the point, calculate the work done against friction (negative of the work done by the friction).

m = 1400 kg , v = 54 km/h = 15 m/sec, h = 10 m $\\$ Work done = (total K.E.) - total P.E.$\\$ $= 0 + \frac{1}{2} mv^2 - mgh = \frac{1}{2} \times 1400 \times (15)^2 - 1400 \times 9.8 \times 10 \\ = 157500 - 137200 = 20300$ $\\$ So, work done against friction, $W_t = 20300 J$

34.   A small block of mass $200$ $g$ is kept at the top of a frictionless incline which is $10$ $m$ long and $3.2$ $m$ high.

What will be the speed of the block when it reaches the ground, if (c) it falls off the incline and drops vertically on the ground (d) it slides down the incline ? Take $g$ = $10$ $m/s^2$

m = 200 g = 0.2 kg , s = 10 m, h = 3.2 m, g = 10 $m/sec^2$ $\\$ a) work done W = mgh = $0.2 \times 10 \times 3.2 = 6.4 J$ $\\$ b) work done to slide the block up the incline $\\$ $w = (mg \ sin \theta) = (0.2) \times 10 \times \frac{3.2}{10} \times 10 = 6.4 J$ $\\$ c) Let, the velocity be v when falls on the ground vertically, $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} mv^2 - 0 = 6.4 J \Rightarrow v = 8 m/s $ $\\$ d) Let V be the velocity when reaches the ground by liding $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} mV^2 - 0 = 6.4 J \Rightarrow v = 8 m/sec $ $\\$

35.   In a children's park, there is a slide which has a total length of $10$ $m$ and a height of $8.0$ $m$ (figure 8-E3). Vertical ladder are provided to reach the top. A boy weighing $200$ $N$ climbs up the ladder to the top of the slide and slides down to the ground. The average friction offered by the slide is three tenth of his weight. Find (a) the work done by the ladder on the boy as he goes up, (b) the work done by the slide on the boy as he comes down. Neglect any work done by forces inside the body of the boy.

$l$ = 10m, h = 8m, mg = 200 N $\\$ $f = 200 \times \frac{3}{10} = 60 N$ $\\$ a) work done by the ladder on the boy is zero when the boy is going up because the work is done by the boy himself. $\\$ b) work done against frictional force, $W = \mu RS = f l = (-60) \times 10 = -600 J $ $\\$ c) work done by the force inside the boy is $\\$ $W_b = (mg\ sin \theta ) \times 10 = 200 \times \frac{8}{10} \times 10 = 1600 J$

36.   36. Figure (8-E4) shows a particle sliding on a frictionless track which terminates in a straight horizontal section. If the particle starts slipping from the point A, how far away from the track will the particle hit the ground ?

H = 1m, h = 0.5m $\\$ Applying law of conservation of Energy for point A $\&$ B $\\$ $mgH = \frac{1}{2} mv^2+mgh \Rightarrow g = (1/2)v^2 + 0.5g \\ \Rightarrow v^2 2(g-0.59) = g \Rightarrow v= \sqrt g = 3.1 m/s$ $\\$ After point B the body exhibits projectile motion for which $\\$ $\theta = 0^o, v= -0.5 \\$ So, $-0.5 = (u\ sin \theta)t - (1/2) gt^2 \Rightarrow 0.5 = 4.9 t^2 \Rightarrow t = 0.31 sec \\$ So, $x = (4\ cos \theta)t = 3.1 \times 3.1 = 1m. \\$ So, the particle will hit the ground at a horizontal distance in from B.

37.   A block weighing $10$ $N$ travels down a smooth curved track $AB$ joined to a rough horizontal surface (figure 8-E5). The rough surface has a friction coefficient of $0.20$ with the block. If the block starts slipping on the track from a point $1.0$ $m$ above the horizontal surface, how far will it move on the rough surface ?

mg = 10N, $\mu = 0.2,$ H = 1m, u=v=0 $\\$ change in P.E. = work done. $\\$ Increase in K.E. $\\$ $\Rightarrow w = mgh = 10 \times 1 = 10 J \\$ Again on the horizontal surface the frictional force $\\$ $F = \mu R= \mu mg= 0.2 \times 10 = 2N \\$ So, the K.E. is used to overcome friction $\\$ $\Rightarrow S = \frac{W}{F} = \frac{10J}{2N}=5m$

Let 'dx' be the length of an element at a distance x from the table $\\$ mass of 'dx' length = $(m/l)dx \\$ Work done to put dx part back on the table $\\$ $W = (m/l) dx \ g(x) \\$ So, total work done to put $l/3$ part back on the table $\\$ $W = \int_{0}^{\frac{1}{3}}(m/l)gx \ dx \Rightarrow w = (m/l)g \Bigg[ \frac{x^2}{2} \Bigg]_0 ^\frac{l}{3} = \frac{mgl^2}{18l} = \frac{mgl}{18} $

39.   A uniform chain of length $L$ and mass $M$ overhangs a horizontal table with its two third part on the table. The friction coefficient between the table and the chain is $11.$ Find the work done by the friction during the period the chain slips off the table.

Let, x length of chain is on the table at a particular instant . $\\$ So, work done by frictional force on a small element 'dx' $\\$ $dW_f=\mu Rx = \mu \Bigg( \frac{M}{L}dx \Bigg) gx \qquad$ [where $dx = \frac{M}{L}dx$] $\\$ Total work done by friction, $\\$ $W_f$ = $$\int_{2L/3}^{0} \mu \frac{M}{L}gx \ dx$$ $\\$ $\therefore W_f = \mu \frac{M}{L}g \Bigg[ \frac{x^2}{2} \Bigg]_{2L/3}^0 = \mu \frac{M}{L} \Bigg[ \frac{4L^2}{18} \Bigg] = 2\mu Mg \ L/9$

m = 5kg, x = 10cm = 0.1m, v = 2m/sec, $\\$ h = ? $G = 10m/sec^2 \\$ So, $k = \frac{mg}{x}= \frac{50}{0.1} = 500 N/m \\$ Total energy just after the blow $E = \frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 + \frac{1}{2} \ kx^2 \qquad$ ...(1) $\\$ Total energy a a height $h = \frac{1}{2} \ k (h-x)^2 + mgh \qquad $ ...(2) $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 + \frac{1}{2} \ kx^2 = \frac{1}{2} \ k (h-x)^2 + mgh$ $\\$ on solving we can get , $\\$ H = 0.2 m = 20 cm

m = 5kg, x = 10cm = 0.1m, v = 2m/sec, $\\$ h = ? $G = 10m/sec^2 \\$ So, $k = \frac{mg}{x}= \frac{50}{0.1} = 500 N/m \\$ Total energy just after the blow $E = \frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 + \frac{1}{2} \ kx^2 \qquad$ ...(1) $\\$ Total energy a a height $h = \frac{1}{2} \ k (h-x)^2 + mgh \qquad $ ...(2) $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 + \frac{1}{2} \ kx^2 = \frac{1}{2} \ k (h-x)^2 + mgh$ $\\$ on solving we can get , $\\$ H = 0.2 m = 20 cm

m = 250 g = 0.250 kg, $\\$ k = 100 N/m, m = 10 cm = 0.1 m $\\$ $g = 10 m/sec^2 \\$ Applying law of conservation of energy $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} \ kx^2 = mgh \Rightarrow h = \frac{1}{2} \Bigg( \frac{ kx^2 }{mg} \Bigg) = \frac{100 \times (0.1)^2}{2 \times 0.25 \times 10} = 0.2m = 20 cm$

The block compresses the spring by $20$ cm, stops momentarily and then rebounds through a distance of $1$ m up the incline. Find (a) the friction coefficient between the plane and the block and (b) the spring constant of the spring. Take $g$ = $10$ $m/s^2.$

m = 2kg, $s_1 = 4.8m,$ x = 20cm = 0.2 m, $s_2 = 1m,$ $\\$ sin $37° = 0.60 = 3/5,$ $\theta = 37°,$ cos $37° = .79 = 0.8 = 4/5$ $\\$ $g = 10m/sec^2 \\$ Applying work-Energy principle for downward motion of the body$\\$ $0-0=mg \ sin \ 37°\times 5 - \mu R \times 5 - \frac{1}{2} \ kx^2$ $\\$ $\Rightarrow 20 \times (0.60) \times 1 - \mu \times 20 \times (0.80) \times 1 + \frac{1}{2} \ k \ (0.2)^2=0 \\$ $\Rightarrow 60-80 \mu - 0.02k = 0 \Rightarrow 80 \mu +0.02k=60 \qquad$ ...(1) $\\$ Similarly, for the upward motion of the body the equation is $\\$ $0-0= (-mg \ sin \ 37°) \times 1 - \mu R \times 1 + \frac{1}{2} \ k \ (0.2)^2 \\$ $\Rightarrow -20 \times (0.60) \times 1 - \mu \times 20 \times (0.80) \times 1 + \frac{1}{2} \ k \ (0.2)^2 = 0$ $\\$ $\Rightarrow -12-16 \mu + 0.02 K = 0 \qquad$ ...(2) $\\$ Adding equation (1) $\&$ equation (2), We get $96\mu = 48$ $\\$ $\Rightarrow \mu = 0.5$ $\\$ Now putting the value of $\mu$ in equation (1) K = 1000 N/m

44.   A block of mass $m$ moving at a speed $v$ compresses a spring through a distance $x$ before its speed is halved. Find the spring constant of the spring.

Answer

44   None

Let the velocity of the body at A be v $\\$ So,the velocity of the body at B is v/2 $\\$ Energy at point A = Energy at point B $\\$ So, $\frac{1}{2} \ mv_A^2 = \frac{1}{2} \ mv_B^2 + \frac{1}{2} \ kx^{2+}$ $\\$ $\Rightarrow \frac{1}{2} \ kx^2 = \frac{1}{2} \ mv_A^2 - \frac{1}{2} \ mv_B^2 \Rightarrow kx^2 = m (V_A^{2+-} V_B^2) \\ \Rightarrow kx^2 = m \Bigg(v^2 - \frac{v^2}{4} \Bigg)\Rightarrow k = \frac{3mv^2}{3x^2}$

48.   Consider the situation shown in figure (8-E8). Initially the spring is unstretched when the system is released from rest. Assuming no friction in the pulley, find the maximum elongation of the spring.

Answer

48   None

49.   Consider the situation shown in figure (8-E8). Initially the spring is unstretched when the system is released from rest. Assuming no friction in the pulley, find the maximum elongation of the spring.

Mass of the body = m $\\$ Let the elongation be x $\\$ So, $\frac{1}{2} \ kx^2 = mgx \\$ $\Rightarrow x = 2mg/k$

50.   A block of mass $m.$ is attached to two unstretched springs of spring constants $k_1$ and $k_2$ as shown in figure (8-E9). The block is displaced towards right through a distance $x$ and is released. Find the speed of the block as it passes through the mean position shown.

The body is displaced x towards right $\\$ Let the velocity of the body be v at its mean position $\\$ Applying law of conservation of energy $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 = \frac{1}{2} \ k_1 x^2 \Rightarrow mv^2 = x^2 (k_1+k_2) \Rightarrow v^2 = \frac{x^2(k_1+k_2)}{m} \\$ $\Rightarrow v = x \sqrt{\frac{k_1+k_2}{m}}$

51.   A block of mass $m,$ sliding on a smooth horizontal surface with a velocity $\vec v$ meets a long horizontal spring fixed at one end and having spring constant $k$ as shown in figure (8-E10). Find the maximum compression of tin spring. Will the velocity of the block be the same as $\vec v$ when it comes back to the original position shown ?

Let the compression be x $\\$ According to the law of conservation of the energy $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 = \frac{1}{2} \ kx^2 \Rightarrow x^2 = mv^2/k \Rightarrow x= v \sqrt{(m/k)} \\$ b) No. it will be in the opposite direction and magnitude will be less due to loss in spring.

52.   A small block of mass $100$ $g$ is pressed against a horizontal spring fixed at one end to compress the spring through $5.0$ $cm$ (figure 8-E11). The spring constant is $100$ $N/m.$ When released, the block moves horizontally till it leaves the spring. Where will it hit the ground $2$ $m$ below the spring ?

m = 100g = 0.1 kg, $\quad$ x = 5cm = 0.05m, $\quad$ k = 100 N/m $\\$ when the body leaves the spring, let the velocity be v $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 = \frac{1}{2} \ kx^2 \Rightarrow v = x \sqrt{(k/m)} = 0.05 \times \sqrt{\frac{100}{0.1}} = 1.58 m/sec \\$ For the projectile motion, $\theta = 0^{\circ},$ Y = -2 $\\$ Now, y = (u sin $\theta$)t - $\frac{1}{2} \ gt^2 \\$ $ \Rightarrow -2 = (-1/2) \times 9.8 \times t^2 \Rightarrow t = 0.63 sec. \\$ So, x = (u cos $\theta$)t $\Rightarrow 1.58 \times 0.63 = 1m$

53.   A small heavy block is attached to the lower end of a light rod of length $l$ which can be rotated about its clamped upper end. What minimum horizontal velocity should the block be given so that it moves in a complete vertical circle ?

Let the velocity of the body at A is 'V' for minimum velocity given at A velocity of the body at point B is zero. $\\$ Applying law of conservation of energy at A $\&$ B $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 = mg \ (2l) \Rightarrow v = \sqrt{(4gl)} = 2 \sqrt{gl}$

54.   Figure (8-E12) shows two blocks $A$ and $B,$ each having a mass of $320$ $g$ connected by a light string passing over a smooth light pulley. The horizontal surface on which the block A can slide is smooth. The block $A$ is attached to a spring of spring constant $40$ $N/m$ whose other end is fixed to a support $40$ $cm$ above the horizontal surface. Initially, the spring is vertical and unstretched when the system is released to move. Find the velocity of the block $A$ at the instant it breaks off the surface below it. Take $g$ = $10$ $m/s^2$

m = 320g = 0.32kg $\\$ k = 40N/m $\\$ h = 40cm = 0.4m $\\$ g = 10 m/s$^2 \\$ From the free body diagram, $\\$ $kx \ cos \theta = mg \\$ (when the block breaks off R = 0) $\\$ $\Rightarrow cos \theta = mg/kx \\$ So, $\frac{0.4}{0.4+x} = \frac{3.2}{40 \times x} \Rightarrow 16x = 3.2x +1.28 \Rightarrow x = 0.1 m \\$ So, $s = AB = \sqrt{(h+x)^2-h^2} = \sqrt{(0.5)^2-(0.4)^2} = 0.3m \\$ Let the velocity of the body at B be v $\\$ Charge in K.E. = work done (for the system) $\\$ $\frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 + \frac{1}{2} \ mv^2 = -\frac{1}{2} \ kx^2+mgs $ $\\$ $\Rightarrow (0.32) \times v^2 = - \frac{1}{2} \times 40 \times (0.1)^2 + 0.32 \times 10 \times (0.3) \\ \Rightarrow v= 1.5 m/s. $
