1. W hat is the gravitational acceleration of a spaceship at a distance equal to two Earth's radius from the

centre of the Earth?

2. A boy on a cliff 49 m high drops a stone. One second later, he throws a second stone after the ftrst. They

both hit the ground at the same time. W ith what speed did he throw the second stone ?

3. A stone drops from the edge of the roof. It passes a window 2 m high in 01 s. How far is the roof above

the top of the window?

4. A particle is dropped from a tower 180 m high. How long does it take to reach the ground? What is the

velocity when it tourhes the ground ? Take g = 10 m/s 2 .

5. To estimate the height of a bridge over a river, a stone is dropped freely on the river from the bridge. The

stone takes 2 s to touch the water surface in the river. Calculate the height of the bridge from the water level.

Take g = 98 m/s 2 .

6. How much would a 70 kg man weigh on moon? What will be his mass on Earth and Moon? Given g on

Moon = 17 m/s 2 .

7. A body has a weight of 10 kg on the surface of Earth. W hat will be its mass and weight when taken to the

centre of Earth?

9. A force of 20 N acts upon a body whose weight is 98 N. W hat is the mas s of the body and how much is its

acceleration ?

10. A man weighs 600 N on the Earth. W hat is its mass? Take g = 10 m/s 2 . If he were taken on Moon, his

weight would be 100 N. What is his mass on Moon? What is acceleration due to gravity on Moon?

11. A car falls off a ledge and drops to the ground in 05 s. Let g = 10 m/s 2 (for simplifying the calculations).

(i) What is its speed on striking the ground? (ii) What is its average speed during 05 s ? (iii) How high is the

ledge from the ground?

12. An object is thrown vertically upwards and rises to a height of 10 m. Calculate (i) the velocity with which

the object was thrown upwards and (ii) the time taken by the object to reach the highest point.

14. An object weighs 10 N when measured on the surface of the Earth. What would be its weight when

measured on the surface of Moon ?

15. Calculate the value of acceleration due to gravity on Moon. Given mass of Moon = 74 10 22 kg, radius of

Moon = 1740 km.

16. Suppose a planet exists whose mass and radius both are half those of Earth. Calculate the acceleration

due to gravity on the surface of this planet.

17. A ball is thrown up with a speed of 15 m/s. How high will it go before it begins to fall? Take g = 98 m/s 2 .

18. A block of wood is kept on a tabletop. The mass of wooden block is 5 kg and its dimensions are 40 cm

20 cm 10 cm. Find the pressure exerted by the wooden block on the table top if it is made to lie on the table

top with its sides of dimensions (a) 20 cm 10 cm and (b) 40 cm 20 cm.

19. Relative density of silver is 10.8. The density of water is 10 3 kg m _3 . What is the density of silver in SI

unit

20. How does the force of gravitation between two objects change when the dist ance between them is

reduced to half?

21. Gravitational force acts on all objects in proportion to their masses. Why then, a heavy object does not

fall faster than a light object?

22. What is the magnitude of the gravitational force between the earth and a 1 kg object on its surface?

(Mass of the earth is 6 10 24 kg and radius of the earth is 6.4 10 6 m.)

23. Gravitational force on the surface of the moon is only as strong as gravitational force on the earth.

What is the weight in newtons of a 10 kg object on the moon and on the earth?

Calculate

(il) the total time it takes to return to the surface of the earth.

25. A stone is released from the top of a tower of height 19.6 m. Calculate its final velocity just before

touching the ground.

26. A stone is thrown vertically upward with an initial velocity of 40 m/s. Taking g = 10 m/s 2 , find the

maximum height reached by the stone. W hat is the net displacement and the total distance covered by the

stone?

27. Calculate the force of gravitation between the earth and the Sun, given that the mass of the earth = 6

10 24 kg and of the Sun = 2 10 30 kg. The average distance between the two is 1.5 10 11 m.
