The magnet will drop under the influence of gravity ignoring air resistance.

In diagram (b)
When the magnet falls, the conductor experience a change in magnetic field.
According to Faradays Law, a current will be induced in the conductor
..(1)

According to Lenzs Law the direction of current induced in the conductor will produce a
magnetic field that causes a force that acts upwards on the magnet.
.(1)

The nett force acting downwards will be smaller than in figure (a) .(1)

According to Newtons second law of motion
Its acceleration downwards will also be smaller. ..(1)

Thus the time taken will be longer.

11. (a) A body is in simple harmonic motion if its acceleration is directly proportional to its
displacement x from a fixed point and is constantly directed towards its fixed point.
Acceleration = -
2
x
2
= constant (2)
or
Simple harmonic motion is a periodic oscillation.
(i) The acceleration is always directed to the the equilibrium position. .(1)
(ii) The acceleration is directly proportional to the displacement (1)

(b) (i) The maximum displacement x should not exceed the Hookes limit i.e. x should
not exceed Mg / k / The system is conservative ,i.e there is no friction or only
light damping ..(1)
(ii) At equilibrium T = Mg = ke
When the mass is displaced x downwards where x < e
k(e+x) Mg = - Ma .(1)
ke + kx Mg = -Ma
kx = - Ma
acceleration of a spring on mass is a = - kx / M (1)
since a / x = -

therefore

= k /M
but = 2f ...(1)
so f = 1/2 k / M

7.0 = 5.0 + 3.0 sin (2t / 45600)
sin (2t / 45600) = 2/3 = 0.6667 ................................................(1)

(2t
