  3. You can finish this test any time using the 'Submit' button.
1. If a machine is lubricated with oil
2. An ideal spring with spring constant k is hung from the ceiling and a block of mass M is attached to its lower end. The mass is released with the spring initially unstretched. Then the maximum extension in the spring is
3. A particle is acted by a force $F=kx$, where $k$ is a positive constant. Its potential energy at $x=0$ is zero. Which curve correctly represents the variation of the potential energy of the block with respect to $x$?

4. A force $\vec{F}=\left(5\hat{i}+3\hat{j}+2\hat{k}\right)N$ is applied over a particle which displaces it from its origin to the point $\vec{r}=\left(2\hat{i}-\hat{j}\right)m$. The work done on the particle (in joule) is
5. A particle of mass 100 g is thrown vertically upwards with a speed of 5 m/s. The work done by the force of gravity during the time the particle goes up is
6. A ball whose Kinetic Energy is $E$, is projected at an angle of ${45}^0$ to the horizontal. The kinetic energy of the ball at the highest point of its flight will be

7. The potential energy of a one Kg particle free to move along the x-axis is given by
$V\left(x\right)=\frac{x^4}{4}-\frac{x^2}{2}$ (in Joule)
The total mechanical energy of the particle is $2J$. Then maximum speed (in m/s) is
8. The block of mass $M$ moving on the frictionless horizontal surface collides with the spring of spring constant $k$ and compress it by length $L$.
The maximum momentum of the block after the collision is
9. A bomb of mass 16 Kg at rest explodes into two pieces of masses 4Kg and 12 Kg. The velocity of the 12 Kg mass is 4 m/s. The kinetic energy of the other mass is
10. A mass m moves with velocity v and collides elastically with another identical mass at rest. After the collision, the first mass moves with velocity v/\sqrt3 in a direction perpendicular to the initial direction of motion.

Find the speed of the second mass after the collision.
11. Statement 1: Two particles moving in the same direction do not lose all their energy in a completely inelastic collision.

Statement 2: Principle of conservation of momentum holds true for all kinds of collision.
12. A block is kept on an inclined plane of inclination $\theta$ and length $l$. The velocity of the particle at bottom of the incline (the coefficient of friction is $\mu$ ) is
13. A bullet hits and gets embedded in a solid block resting on a frictionless surface. In this process which one of the following is correct?
14. If a spring extends by $x$ on loading, then the energy stored by the spring is (if $T$ is tension in the spring and $K$ is spring constant)
15. Which of the following is true
16. Two particles are seen to collide and move jointly together after the collision, for the total system,
17. A ball is bouncing down the flight of stairs. The coefficient of restitution is $e$. The height of each step is d and the ball descends one step each bounce. After each bounce, it rebounds to a height $h$ above the next lower step. The height is large enough compared with the width of step so that the impacts are effectively head-on. Find the relationship between $h$ and $d.
18. In the following question, a statement of assertion is followed by a statement of reason.

Assertion: When a body moves along a circular path, no work is done by the centripetal force.

Reason: The centripetal force is used in moving the body along the circular path and hence no work is done.

Mark the correct choice as
19. In the following question, a statement of assertion is followed by a statement of reason.

Assertion: Mass and energy are not conserved separately, but are conserved as single entity called mass-energy.

Reason: Mass and energy are inter-convertible in accordance with Einstein’s relation, $E=mc^2$

Mark the correct choice as
20. In the following question, a statement of assertion is followed by a statement of reason.

Assertion: In elastic collision of two billiard balls, the total kinetic energy is conserved during the short time of collision of the balls (i.e., when they are in contact)

Reason: Energy spent against friction does not follow the law of conservation of energy.
Mark the correct choice as
21. In the following question, a statement of assertion is followed by a statement of reason.

Assertion: If the momentum of a body is increased by 50%, its kinetic energy will increase by 125%

Reason: Kinetic energy is proportional to square of velocity.
Mark the correct choice as
