JEE Muliple Choice Questions

Question 1.
The radius vector of point x relative to origin varies with time as
$\mathbf{r}=a cos(kt)\mathbf{i}+b sin(kt)\mathbf{j}$
Where a and b are constants and i and j are vectors along x and y axis. Which one of the following is the mean velocity vector?
a. $ \frac {a cos(kt)\mathbf{i}- b sin(kt)\mathbf{j}}{t}$
b. $a cos(kt)\mathbf{i}+ b sin(kt)\mathbf{j}$
c. $a cos(kt)\mathbf{i}- b sin(kt)\mathbf{j}$
d. $ \frac {a cos(kt)\mathbf{i}+ b sin(kt)\mathbf{j}}{t}$


Average velocity vector is given as
$<\mathbf{v}>=\frac{\int \mathbf{v}dt}{t}$
Now given
$\mathbf{r}=a cos(kt)\mathbf{i}+b sin(kt)\mathbf{j}$
$\mathbf{v}= \frac {d\mathbf{r}}{dt}= - a sin(kt)\mathbf{i} + b cos(kt)\mathbf{j}$
Now we calculate Average velocity vector as
$<\mathbf{v}>=\frac{\int (- a sin(kt)\mathbf{i} + b cos(kt)\mathbf{j})dt}{t}$
$<\mathbf{v}>= \frac {a cos(kt)\mathbf{i}+ b sin(kt)\mathbf{j}}{t}$

Question 2.
A wind is blowing in the North direction at the speed of 5 km/hr. An airplane moves to a point in the East which is 2000 km away in 40 hr. Find the velocity of the airplane with respect to the wind.
Motion in plane Problems with Solutions for JEE Main & JEE Advanced


The situation is depicted in the figure below

Let take v as the velocity with respect to wind. Lets it makes an angle $\theta$ with the east direction
Velocity of the airplane with respect to ground=2000/40=50 km/hr
From the figure
$vsin \theta =5$
and $vcos \theta =50$
So $v= \sqrt {2525}$ and $\theta = tan^{-1} \frac {1}{10}$

Question 3.
Two cars A and B run at constant speed $u_1$ and $u_2$ along the highways intersecting at an angle $\theta$. They start at t=0 at the intersection point. Find the time required to have distance s between the two cars
Important Questions on Kinematics for JEE Advanced And Jee Main


Let us assume
$u_{12}$= Speed of second car with respect to first car
$u_{21}$= Speed of first car with respect to second car
also $u_{12}= u_{21}$
From the figure given below and from mathematics theorem

$u_{12}= \sqrt {u_1^2 + u_2^2 + 2u_1 u_2 cos \theta}$
Now time will given by
$t = \frac {s}{\sqrt {u_1^2 + u_2^2 + 2u_1 u_2 cos \theta}}$

Question 4.

A bar XY of length l which always remains in the same vertical plane has its ends X and Y constrained to remain in contact with the horizontal floor and in vertical wall as shown below in the figure.
The bar starts from a vertical position and end X is moved along the floor with a constant velocity v0 so that its displacement OX=v0t. The displacement time graph for Y end is
(a) Ellipse
(b) Circle
(c) Parabola
(d) Straight line


Choosing for the X-axis the vertical line of motion OY with the origin at O , we see from the figure that the displacement x of the end Y is given by the equation
$x = \sqrt {l^2 - (v_0 t)^2 }$
$x^2 = l^2 - v_0^2 t^2 $
$x^2 + v_0^2 t^2 = l^2$
$\frac {x^2}{l^2} + \frac {t^2}{(l\v_0)^2} = 1 $
This is the equation of an ellipse.

Question 5.
Three particles of mass m1,m2,m3 moves in plane with initial velocity v1 , v2 , v3 . A constant acceleration a acts on the three particles. At t=t0, there velocities becomes v1', v2' , v3' Which of the following expression are correct?
Important Questions on Kinematics for JEE Advanced And Jee Main


$\mathbf{v_1^{'}} = \mathbf{v_1} + \mathbf{a}t_0$
Multiplying by $m_1$ on both sides
$m_1 \mathbf{v_1^{'}} = m_1 \mathbf{v_1} + m_1 \mathbf{a}t_0 $ ----(1)
$m_2 \mathbf{v_2^{'}} = m_2 \mathbf{v_2} + m_2 \mathbf{a}t_0 $ ----(2)
$m_3 \mathbf{v_3^{'}} = m_3 \mathbf{v_3} + m_3 \mathbf{a}t_0 $ ----(3)
Adding (1) ,(2) and (3)
$ \frac {(m_1 \mathbf{v_1} + m_2 \mathbf{v_2} + m_3 \mathbf{v_3}) - (m_1 \mathbf{v_1^{'}} + m_2 \mathbf{v_2^{'}} + m_3 \mathbf{v_3^{'}})}{m_1 + m_2 + m_3} = - \mathbf{a}t_0$
Adding (1) and (2) only
$ \frac {(m_1 \mathbf{v_1} + m_2 \mathbf{v_2} ) - (m_1 \mathbf{v_1^{'}} + m_2 \mathbf{v_2^{'}} )}{m_1 + m_2 } = - \mathbf{a}t_0$
Now we have
$\mathbf{v_1^{'}} = \mathbf{v_1} + \mathbf{a}t_0$ -- (4)
$\mathbf{v_2^{'}} = \mathbf{v_2} + \mathbf{a}t_0$ -- (5)
$\mathbf{v_3^{'}} = \mathbf{v_3} + \mathbf{a}t_0$ --(6)
Adding (4),(5) and (6)
$ \frac {(\mathbf{v_1} + \mathbf{v_2} + \mathbf{v_3}) - (\mathbf{v_1^{'}} + \mathbf{v_2^{'}} + \mathbf{v_3^{'}})}{3} = - \mathbf{a}t_0$
Subtracting (4) and (6)
$ \mathbf{v_1^{'}} - \mathbf{v_2^{'}} = \mathbf{v_1} - \mathbf{v_2}$

Question 6.
Two particles X and Y travel along the x and y axis with respective velocities
$\mathbf{v_1} = 2\mathbf{i}$ m/sec
$\mathbf{v_2} = 3\mathbf{j}$ m/sec
At t=0 they are at
$x_1 = -3m$ and $y_1=0$
$x_2= 0$ and $y_2=-3 m$
Find the vector which represents the position of Y relative to X as a function of t
i and j are respective unit vectors along x and y direction
a. $(3t -3) \mathbf{j} + (3-2t) \mathbf{i}$
b. $(3t +3) \mathbf{j} + (3+2t) \mathbf{i}$
c. $(3t -2) \mathbf{j} + (2-2t) \mathbf{i}$
d. None of the above


Position of X after time t
$\mathbf{r_1}=(-3 + 2t)\mathbf{i}$

Position of Y after time t
$\mathbf{r_2}=(-3 + 3t)\mathbf{j}$

Relative vector of Y w.r.t to X
$= \mathbf{r_2} - \mathbf{r_1}$
Or =$(3t -3) \mathbf{j} + (3-2t) \mathbf{i}$

(B) Two ring X and Y are put on two vertical stationary rods AB and AB. An inextensible thread is fixed at point A and on ring X and is passed through ring Y.

Let x be the distance of ring X from Fixed point A
Let y be the distance of ring Y from fixed point A'
Let L is distance between the two rods
Now length of the string remains constant
$ x + \sqrt {L^2 + (y-x)^2 } = C$

So, it is vertically upwards

Question 8

jee advanced questions on relative motion


Now velocity of Ring Y with respect to Ring X
$w_x = w -v = v - \frac {v}{cos \theta} -v = - \frac {v}{cos \theta}$
It is also vertically upwards

A man X can swim at a speed of 10 m/s with respect to river . He wants to cross the river which is 50 m wide and has a current of 5 m/s
If he wishes to land on the other bank at a point directly across the river from his starting point

River swimmer Problems with Solutions for JEE Main & JEE Advanced
Let $v_c$ -> Velocity of the current
$v_w$ -> Velocity w.r.t current
$v_s$ -> Velocity w.r.t shore
$\mathbf{v_w}=\mathbf{v_s} - \mathbf{v_c}$
$\mathbf{v_s}= \mathbf{v_w} + \mathbf{v_c}$

To directly cross the river
$ \mathbf{v_s} \perp \mathbf{v_c}$
$ sin \theta = \frac {v_c}{v_w} = \frac {5}{10} = \frac {1}{2}$
So $\theta = 30$°

So angle made with the current is 90+30=120 °

$v_s = v_w cos \theta = \frac {10 \sqrt {3}}{2}= 5 \sqrt {3} $ m/s
$t = \frac {d}{v_s} = \frac {50}{5 \sqrt {3}} = \frac {10}{ \sqrt {3}} $ seconds

Hence (d) is the correct answer

Question 10

b. 60°
c. 30°
d. 90°


Here (a) is the answer as solved above

b. 30° to current
c. 60 ° to current
d. none of these


To maximize the components of his velocity perpendicular to the river bank, the swimmer should head straight across the stream
Hence (a) is the correct option

Question 13.

T=50/10=5 sec

So that at any time $v_x=3 m/s$

Question 17.
Find the magnitude and direction of velocity at x=1/3 m
relative motion jee questions


$y=x^2$ -(1)
$v_x=\frac {dx}{dt}=3 $
Differentiating equation (1) w.r.t time
$ \frac {dy}{dt} = 2x \frac {dx}{dt}$
$ \frac {dy}{dt} = 2x \times 3 =6x$
So, at x=1/3
$ \frac {dy}{dt} = 2x \times 3 =6x =2$
$\frac {dx}{dt}=3 $
So, Magnitude and direction will be
$ \sqrt {13} ,tan^{-1} \frac {2}{3}$

Question 18
Find the acceleration at x=1/3 (both magnitude and direction)
a. 18 m/sec2 ,90°
b. 14 m/sec2 ,60°
c. 18 m/sec2 ,60°
d. 14 m/sec2 ,90°


$ \frac {dy}{dt} =6x$
$\frac {dx}{dt}=3 $
Differentiating equations w.r.t time
$ \frac {d^y}{dt^2}= 6 \frac {dx}{dt} = 18$
$ \frac {d^x}{dt^2}=0$
So magnitude and direction will be
18 m/sec2 ,900
