For the following questions answer them individually

Question 11

The reading ofa spring balance is from 0 to 200 N and is 10 cm long. A body suspended from the spring balance is observed to oscillate vertically at 2 Hz. The mass of the body is nearly

Video Solution

Question 12

A ball is dropped vertically from a height d above the ground. It hits the ground and bounces up to a height d/2. Neglecting the subsequent motion and air resistance, its velocity (v) varies with height (h) above the ground as

Question 13

A 10 kW drilling machineis used to drill a bore in a small aluminium block of mass 8 kg. How much is the rise in temperature of the block in 2.5 minutes, assuming 50% of power is used up in heating the block? (specific-heat of aluminum : 0.91 J/($$g^\circ C$$))
