6. A force F = -K(yi + xj)  (where K is a positive constant) acts on a particle moving in the XY-plane.

The total work done by the force F on the particles is
Ans:  -Ka2
Solution:
While moving from (0, 0) to (a, 0)
Along positive X-axis, y = 0
i.e. force is in negative Y-direction while displacement is in positive X-direction.

W1 = 0
Because force is perpendicular to displacement
Then particle moves from (a, 0) to (a, a) along a line parallel to Y-axis (x = +a) during this
The first component of force,  will not contribute any work because this component is along negative X-direction  while displacement is in positive Y-direction (a, 0) to (a, a). The second component of force i.e.  will perform negative work

Solution:
Shell is fired with velocity v at an angle ​ with the horizontal.

Solution:
Let two pieces are having equal mass m and third piece have a mass of 3m.

According to law of conservation of linear momentum. Since the initial momentum of the system was zero, therefore final momentum of the system must be zero i.e. the resultant of momentum of two pieces must be equal to the momentum of third piece. We know that if two particle possesses same momentum and angle in between them is 90° then resultant will be given by
Let the velocity of mass 3m is V. So

Solution:
When particle moves away from the origin then at position x = x1 force is zero and at x > x1, force is positive (repulsive in nature) so particle moves further and does not return back to original position.
i.e. the equilibrium is not stable.

Reason : If two bodies stick to each other, after colliding, the collision is said to be perfectly elastic.
Ans: If  the assertion and reason both are false.

Solution: In an elastic collision both the momentum and kinetic energy remains conserved. But this rule is not for individual bodies, but for the system of bodies before and after the collision. While collision in which there occurs some loss of kinetic energy is called inelastic collision. Collision in daily life are generally inelastic. The collision is said to be perfectly inelastic, if two bodies stick to each other.

Solution: Work done and power developed is zero in uniform circular motion only.

84. Assertion : A kinetic energy of a body is quadrupled, when its velocity is doubled.
Reason : Kinetic energy is proportional to square of velocity.
Ans: If  both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.

Reason : The rate of change of momentum determine that force is small or large.
Ans: If  both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.

Solution: In a quick collision, time t is small. As F t = constant, therefore, force involved is large, i.e. collision is more violent in comparison to slow collision.

86. Assertion : Work done by or against gravitational force in moving a body from one point to another is independent of the actual path followed between the two points.
Reason : Gravitational forces are conservative forces.

89. Assertion : Heavy water is used as moderator in nuclear reactor.
Reason : Water cool down the fast neutron.
Ans: If  assertion is true but reason is false.

Solution: When two bodies of same mass undergo an elastic collision, their velocities get interchanged after collision. Water and heavy water are hydrogenic materials containing protons having approximately the same mass as that of a neutron. When fast moving neutrons collide with protons, the neutrons come to rest and protons move with the velocity of that of neutrons.

90. Assertion : Mass and energy are not conserved separately, but are conserved as a single entity called mass-energy.
Reason : Mass and energy conservation can be obtained by Einstein equation for energy.
Ans: If  both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.
Solution: From Einstein equation
it can be observed that if mass is conserved then only energy is conserved and vice versa. Thus, both cannot be treated separately.

91. Assertion : If two protons are brought near one another, the potential energy of the system will increase.
Reason : The charge on the proton is + 1.6 × 10-19 C.
Ans: If  both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of the assertion.
Solution: If two protons are brought near one another, work has to be done against electrostatic force because same charge repel each other. This work done is stored as potential energy in the system.

92. Assertion : In case of bullet fired from gun, the ratio of kinetic energy of gun and bullet is equal to ratio of mass of bullet and gun.
Reason : In firing, momentum is conserved.
Ans: If  both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.

Solution:

93. Assertion : Power of machine gun is determined by both, the number of bullet fired per second and kinetic energy of bullets.
Reason : Power of any machine is defined as work done (by it) per unit time
Ans: If  both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.
Solution: K.E. of one bullet = k  K.E. of n bullet = nk
According to law of conservation of energy, the kinetic energy of bullets be equal to the work done by machine gun per sec.

94. Assertion : A work done in moving a body over a closed loop is zero for every force in nature.
Reason : Work done does not depend on nature of force.
Ans: If  the assertion and reason both are false.
Solution: Work done in the motion of a body over a closed loop is zero only when the body is moving under the action of conservative forces (like gravitational or electrostatic forces). i.e. work done depends upon the nature of force.

95. Assertion : Mountain roads rarely go straight up the slope.
Reason : Slope of mountains are large therefore more chances of vehicle to slip from roads.
Ans: If  both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.
Solution: If roads of the mountain were to go straight up, the slope θ would have been large, the frictional force   would be small. Due to small friction, wheels of vehicle would slip. Also for going up a large slope, a greater power shall be required.

96. Assertion : Soft steel can be made red hot by continued hammering on it, but hard steel cannot.
Reason : Energy transfer in case of soft iron is large as in hard steel.
Ans: If  both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.
Solution: The rise in temperature of the soft steel is an example of transferring energy into a system by work and having it appear as an increase in the internal energy of the system. This works well for the soft steel because it is soft. This softness results in a deformation of the steel under blow of the hammer. Thus the point of application of the force is displaced by the hammer and positive work is done on the steel. With the hard steel, less deformation occur, thus, there is less displacement of point of application of the force and less work done on the steel. The soft steel is therefore better in absorbing energy from the hammer by means of work and its temperature rises more rapidly.
