As linear momentum = mass × velocity, therefore linear momentum
of a body changes in a circle.
Assertion and Reason On the other hand, if the body is moving uniformly along a
straight line then its velocity remains constant and hence
acceleration is equal to zero. So force is equal to zero.

14. (a) As the fuel in rocket undergoes combustion, the gases so
produced leave the body of the rocket with large velocity and
give upthrust to the rocket. If we assume that the fuel is burnt
at a constant rate, then the rate of change of momentum of the
rocket will be constant. As more and more fuel gets burnt, the
mass of the rocket goes on decreasing and it leads to increase
of the velocity of rocket more and more rapidly.
15. (c) The apparent weight of a body in an elevator moving with
downward acceleration a is given by W  m (g  a).

For downward accelerated motion,
Apparent weight < Actual weight

18. (a) By lowering his hand player increases the time of catch, by
doing so he experience less force on his hand because
F  1/dt .
19. (b) According to Newton’s second law,
F  ma  a  F / m
For constant F, acceleration is inversely proportional to mass
i.e. acceleration produced by a force depends only upon the
mass of the body and for larger mass acceleration will be less.
20. (c) In uniform circular motion, the direction of motion changes,
therefore velocity changes.
As P = mv therefore momentum of a body also changes in
uniform circular motion.
21. (e) According to third law of motion it is impossible to have a
single force out of mutual interaction between two bodies,
whether they are moving or at rest. While, Newton’s third law
is applicable for all types of forces.
22. (d) An inertial frame of reference is one which has zero
acceleration and in which law of inertia hold good i.e. Newton’s
law of motion are applicable equally. Since earth is revolving
around the sun and earth is rotating about its own axis also,
the forces are acting on the earth and hence there will be
acceleration of earth due to these factors. That is why earth
cannot be taken as inertial frame of reference.
23. (b) According to law of inertia (Newton’s first law), when cloth is
pulled from a table, the cloth come in state of motion but
dishes remains stationary due to inertia. Therefore when we
pull the cloth from table the dishes remains stationary.
24. (e) A body subjected to three concurrent forces is found to in
equilibrium if sum of these force is equal to zero.
  
i.e. F1  F2  F3  .....  0.
25. (e) From Newton's second law
Impulse = Change of momentum.
So they have equal dimensions
