Conceptual Questions

  1. Why shoulder bags are provided with broad straps and not thin straps
  2. Why the tools meant for cutting and piercing always have sharp edges
  3. Two women are of the same weight. One wears sandals with pointed heels while the other wears sandals with flat soles. Which one would feel more comfortable while walking on a sandy beach? Give reasons for your answer.
  4. Two persons are applying forces on two opposite sides of a moving cart. The cart still moves with the same speed in the same direction. What do you infer about the magnitudes and direction of the forces applied
  5. Why do deep-sea divers have to wear special suits before going for diving at the depths?


c. The woman wearing sandals with flat soles will feel more comfortable while walking on the sandy beach. The flat soles have larger area compared to the sandals with pointed heels. Since the two women are of the same weight, they will apply same force on the ground. Therefore, the pressure exerted by the pointed heels will be more compared to that with sandals having flat soles. As a result, the pointed heel sandals will sink more in the sand than the flat sole sandals. Hence, walking with flat sole sandals will be more comfortable.
d. Both the forces are of equal magnitudes and applied in the opposite directions.
