  1. When a person receives electric shock his body temperature falls suddenly. Thus the viscosity of the blood suddenly decreases and begins to clot. To avoid this his body is to massaged continuously.


Inertia of motion Inertia of rest







  1. m = 800 kg u = 15 m/s v = 0  t = 3s



(c) s = ut +  at2 = 15 ´ 3 +  ´ (-5) x 3 x 3

= 22.5 m

(d) F = ma

F = 800 x -5 = -4000 N

12 i     –     d    –      q

ii    –    a    –      r

iii   –    b    –      s

iv   –    c    –      p

  1. (a) Newton’s second law of motion. The rate of change of momentum of a body is directly proportion to the unbalanced external force acting on it.

(b) A body of mass ‘m’ is moving with a velocity ‘u’. A force ‘F’ acts for a time of ‘t’ seconds and the velocity changes to v

Initial momentum P1        =  mu

Final momentum P2 =      mv

Change of momentum

= P2 – P1 = mv – mu = m(v-u)

Rate of change of momentum=  = ma

According to Newton’s Second law

Force µ Rate of change of momentum

F µ ma

the value of k = 1 F = kma,

F = ma

  1. (a)Density of sea water is more than lake water. So buoyancy of sea water increases and the ship raises.

(b) Capillarity

(c)  Adhesion between paper, water and wall

(d) surface tension

  1. u = 0, t = 2s,   a = 10 m/s2

(a) s = ut + at2

= 0 ´ 2 +  ´ 10 ´ 2 ´ 2 = 20m

(b)From the graph

Displacement = Area of the trapezium

s = ´t´(u+v) ……….(1)

But a =

Substitute this value of a in equation (1) we get


                                2as = v2 – u2;                       v2 = u2 + 2as
