Why a standard unit is need to measure a quantity correctly.
Ans:
Various units have been in use in different times in different parts of the world. The fast means of communication
systems have changed the world into a global village. Due to this reason an international system of units for mutual
business became essential.
The eleventh general conference of weights and measures recommended that all the countries of world should adopted a
system of same kind of standard units, consisting of seven base units known as international system of units (SI) and
derived units.

Q: What is meant by base and derived units? Give three examples of derived units and explain how they are
derived from base units.

Q: Explain the statement “A micrometer screw gauge measures more accurately than a vernier caliper”?
Ans.
Least Count: The minimum length which can be measured accurately is called least count of any measuring device.

The least count of micrometer screw gauge is 0.01 mm and that of Vernier calliper is 0.1. cm. So a micrometer screw
gauge measures more accurately than a vernier calliper.
Significant figures:
All accurately known digits and the first doubtful digit in an expression are called significant figures. It reflects the
precision of a measured value of a physical quantity.
RULES TO FIND THE SIGNIFICANT FIGURE IN A MEASUREMENT:
(i) Digits other than zero are always significant.
27 have 2 significant digits.
275 have 3 significant digits.
(ii) Zeroes between significant digits are also significant.
2705 have 4 significant digits.
(iii) Final zero or zero after decimal are significant.
275.00 have 5 significant digits.
(iv) Zero used for spacing the decimal points is not significant.
Here zero is place holders only.
0.03 has 1 significant digit.
0.027 has 2 significant digits.
(v) In whole numbers that end in 1 or more zero without a decimal point. These zeroes may or may not be significant. In
such cases, it is not clear which zero serve to locate the position value and which are actually parts of measurements. In
such a case, express the quantity using scientific notation to find the significant zero.
APPLICATION OF PHYSICS
Physics play an important role in our daily life. We hardly find a device where physics is not involved. Consider pulleys
make it easy to left heavy loads. Electricity is not used only to get light and heat but also mechanical energy that derives
fans electric motors ctc.Consider the means of transportation such as car and aeroplanes domestic appliances such as
air conditioners refrigerators vacuum cleaners washing machine and micro wave ovens etc.Similarly the means of

Derivation of Equation of Motion (Graphically)


First Equation of Motion

Consider an object moving with a uniform velocity u in a straight line. Let it be, given a uniform acceleration at time, t = 0
when its initial velocity is Vi. As a result of the acceleration, its velocity increases to Vf (final velocity) in time t and s is the
distance covered by the object in time t. The figure shows the velocity-time graph of the motion of the object.

Asif Rasheed BS (HONS) Physics # 0344 78 46 394


Ideal Science Academy
Slope of the Vf - t graph gives the acceleration of the moving object.
Thus, acceleration = slope = AB = BC/AC
Where BD=Vf, CD=Vi, AC= OD=t BC=BD-CD
(Average,acceleration(aav)= ChangeinVelocity/time)
Slope=AB= Vf - Vi/ t
a = Vf - Vi/ t

Vf – Vi = at
Vf = Vi + at ........................................................(1)

Second Equation of Motion


Let Vi be the initial velocity of an object and 'a' the acceleration produced in
the body. The distance travelled s in time t is given by the area enclosed by
the velocity-time graph for the time interval 0 to t.
Distance travelled S = area of the trapezium ABDO
Total aera of OABD= area of rectangle ACDO + area of ΔABC

Third Equation of Motion
Let 'vi' be the initial velocity of an object and a be the acceleration produced in the body. The distance travelled’s’ in time’t’
is given by the area enclosed by the speed (v) - t graph.
S= area of the trapezium OABD.

But we know that a =( Vf - Vi )t


Or t = (Vf - Vi )a
Substituting the value of t in eq. (1) we get,

s = ( ) (Vi + Vf)( Vf − Vi)a = ( ) (Vf + Vi)( Vf − Vi)a

2as = (Vf + Vi) ( Vf - Vi )


(Vf + Vi)( Vf - Vi) = 2as [using the identity a2 - b2 = (a + b) (a - b)]
v2 - Vi 2 = 2as........... Third Equation of Motion

Acceleration Due To Gravity Or Free Falling Objects


“Galileo was the first scientist to observe that, neglecting the effect of air resistance, all bodies in free-fall close to the
Earth’s surface accelerate vertically downwards with the same acceleration: namely 9.8 m/s 2″
Example
If a ball is thrown vertically upward, it rises to a particular height and then falls back to the ground. However this is due to
the attraction of the earth which pulls the object towards the ground”
Characteristic Of Free Falling Bodies
1. When a body is thrown vertically upward, its velocity continuously decreases and become zero at a particular height
During this motion the value of acceleration is negative and Vf is equal to zero

1. FORCE
The Force is an agent which produces or tends to produce a motion in a body or it stops or tends to stop the motion of a
body. In simple words we can also say that force is an agent which changes or tends to change the state of an object.
UNIT
The unit of a Force in M.K.S System is Newton
2. MASS
The quantity of matter contained in a body is called mass. It is a scalar quantity.
FORMULA
F = ma
m = F/a
UNIT
The unit of mass in M.K.S System is Kilogram (kg).

UNIT
The unit of weight in M.K.S System is Newton (N).
INERTIA
Definition
“Inertia is the tendency of a body to resist a change in its state.”
Examples
Cover a glass with a post card and place a coin on it. Now strike the post card swiftly with the nail of your finger. If the
stroke has been made correctly, the postcard will be thrown away and the coin will drop in the glass.
If a moving bus stops suddenly, the passenger standing in it feels a jerk in the forward direction. As a result he may fall. It
is due to the fact that the lower part of the standing passengers comes to rest as the bus stops. But the upper portion
remains in motion due to inertia.
Difference between Mass and Weight
Mass
1. The quantity of matter present in a body is called mass.
2. The mass of a body remains constant everywhere and does not change by change in altitude.
3. It is a scalar quantity.
4. Mass can be determined by a physical balance.
Weight
1. The force with which the earth attracts a body towards its centre is called the weight of the body.
2. The weight of a body is not constant. It is changed by altitude.
3. Weight is always directed towards the center of the earth. So it is a vector quantity.
4. Weight can be determined by only a spring balance.

LAW OF MOTIONS
Newton formulated three laws of motion in his book.
NEWTON FIRST LAW OF MOTIONS
Newton’s first law of motion is also known as the Law of Inertia.
STATEMENT
“Every body continues its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line until it is acted upon by an external or
unbalance force to change its state of rest or uniform motion”.
EXPLANATION
This law consists of a two parts
(a) When body is at rest
(b) When body is moving with uniform velocity
(a). When a body is at rest
Newton’s Law states that when a body is at rest, it continues its rest unless we apply a force on it. When we apply a force,
it changes its state of rest and starts moving along a straight line.
(b) When body is moving with a uniform velocity
Newton’s Law states that when a body is moving, it moves in a straight line with uniform velocity, but when we apply an
27

opposite force, it changes its state of motion and come to rest.

Examples
If a bus suddenly starts moving, the passengers standing in the bus will fall in the backward direction. It is due to the
reason that the lower part of the passengers which is in contract with the floor of the bus is carried forward by the
motion of the bus, but the upper part of the body remains at rest due to inertia and so the passengers fall in backward
direction.
If a bus suddenly stops moving, the passengers standing in the bus will fall in the forward direction. It is due to the reason
that the lower part of the passengers which is in contract with the floor of the bus is stopped with the bus, but the upper
part of the body remains moving due to inertia and so the passengers fall in forward direction.
SECOND LAW OF MOTION
STATEMENT
“When a force acts on an object it produces an acceleration which is directly proportion to the amount of the force and
inversely proportional to the product of mass”
EXPLANATION
When we push a body with greater force then its velocity increases and change of velocity takes place in the direction of
the force. If we apply a certain force F on a mass m, then it moves with certain velocity in the direction of the force. If the
force becomes twice then its velocity will also increase two times. In this way if we go on increasing the fore there will be
increase in velocity, which will increase the acceleration.
DERIVATION
According to the Newton`s Second law of motion when a force acts on an object it produces an acceleration which is
directly proportion to the amount of the force.

THIRD LAW OF MOTION
Statement:
“To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction ”
EXPLANATION
According to Newton’s Law of Motion, we have:
F(action) = – F(reaction)
The negative (-) sign indicates that the two forces are parallel but in the opposite direction. If we consider one of the
interacting objects as A and the other as B, then according to the third law of motion:
F(AB) = – F(BA)
F(AB) represents the force exerted on A and F(BA) is the force exerted on B.
Examples
We walk on the ground, we push the ground backward and as a reaction the ground pushes us forward. Due to this
reason we are able to move on the ground.
If a book is placed on the table, it exerts some force on the table, which is equal to the weight of the book. The table as a
29

reaction pushes the book upward. This is the reason that the book is stationary on the table and it does not fall down.

FRICTION

Definition
The force, which resists the motion of one surface on another
surface, is known as

friction.
Explanation
Suppose a wooden block is placed on a table and a spring balance is attached on it. If we apply a very small force of
magnitude F by pulling the spring gradually and increase it, we observe that the block does not move until the applied
force has reached a critical value. If F is less then critical value, the block does not move. According to Newton’s Third
Law of motion an opposite force balance the force. This opposing force is known as the force of friction or friction.

CausesofFriction
If we see the surface of material bodies through microscope, we observe that they are not smooth. Even the most
polished surfaces are uneven. When one surface is placed over another, the elevations of one get interlocked with the
depression of the other. Thus they oppose relative motion. The opposition is known as friction.

Factors on which Friction Depends


The force of friction depends upon the following factors:
1. Normal Reaction (R)
Force of friction is directly proportional to normal reaction (R), which act upon the body in upward direction against the
weight of the body sliding on the surface.
2. Nature of Surfaces
Force of friction also depends upon the nature of the two surfaces. It is denoted as u and has constant values for every
30

surface. It is different for the two surfaces in contact.

Coefficient Of Friction
The coefficient of friction is a number which represents the friction between two surfaces. Between two equal surfaces,
the coefficient of friction will be the same. The symbol usually used for the coefficient of friction is Greek letter µ, where 0
≤µ≤1. The
maximum frictional force (when a body is sliding) is equal to the coefficient of friction × the
normal reaction force. F=µ
R
Where µ is the coefficient of friction and R is the normal reaction force.
This frictional force, F, will act parallel to the surfaces in contact and in a direction to oppose the motion that is taking/
trying to take place.

Advantages of Friction
1. We could not walk without the friction between our shoes and the ground. As we try to step forward, we push our foot
backward. Friction holds our shoe to the ground, allowing you to walk.
2. Writing with a pencil requires friction. We could not hold a pencil in our hand without friction.
3. A nail stays in wood due to friction
4. Nut and bold hold due to friction
DISADVANTAGES OF FRICTION
1. In any type of vehicle–such as a car, boat or airplane–excess friction means that extra fuel must be used to power the
vehicle. In other words, fuel or energy is wasted because of the friction.
2. The Law of Conservation of Energy states that the amount of energy remains constant. Thus, the energy that is “lost” to
friction in trying to move an object is really turned to heat energy. The friction of parts rubbing together creates heat.
3. Due to the friction a machine has less efficiency less than 100%.
4. Due to friction machine catch fire.

Laws of Friction
Page

Asif Rasheed BS (HONS) Physics # 0344 78 46 394


Ideal Science Academy
Statement
The value of limiting friction increases proportionally with the increase in normal reaction. Hence, liming friction F(s) is
directly proportional to the normal reaction.
F(s) < R (Here < represents the sign of proportionality don’t’ write it in the examination paper.)
=> Fs = µ R ……….. (i)
u = F(s)/R
u is the constant of proportionality, which depends upon the nature of the surfaces of the two surfaces in contact. It is
known as the coefficient of friction. It is only a number without any unit. We know that the normal reaction is directly
proportional to the weight of the block, therefore,
R = W = mg
Substituting the value of R in equation (i)
=> Fs = µ mg
Rolling Friction
When a body rolls over a surface, the force of friction is called rolling friction. Rolling friction is much less than the sliding
friction. This is because the surfaces in contact are very much less.
LONG QUESTIONS
Question: Explain the Law of Conservation of Momentum?
This law states that
“When two or more bodies collide with one another the total momentum of the
system remains the same, provided no external force acts upon them.”
Explanation: -
The law of conservation of momentum is a fundamental law of nature, and it states that the total momentum of an isolated
system of objects (which has no interactions with external agents) is constant. One of the consequences of this is that the
of any centre of mass system of objects will always continue with the same velocity unless acted on by a force outside the
system.

Consider two balls of masses m 1 and m2 . They are initially moving with velocities u1and u2 in same direction on a straight
line. If u1 > u2 , then the balls will collide. Let their velocities becomes v1 and v2 after collision.
Total momentum of balls before collision = m1u1 + m2u2
Total momentum of balls after collision = m1v1 + m2 v2
According to Law of conservation of momentum
Total Momentum before collision = Total Momentum after collision
m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2 v2
Rockets and jet engines also work on the same principle. In these machines, hot gases produced by burning of fuel rush out
with large momentum. The machines gain an equal and opposite momentum. This enables them to move with very high
velocities.

Question: Define friction and describe the types of friction?


Question: What is force of friction? How friction can be reduced?
Friction: -
The force, which resists the motion of one surface on another surface, is known as
friction.
Methods to reduce friction: -
i) Sliding parts should be highly polished to reduce friction.
ii) Friction of liquids is less than solids. Therefore oil or grease is applied between the parts of machinery.
iii) Rolling friction is less then sliding friction. Therefore sliding friction should be converted to rolling friction by using ball
bearings.
iv) Front side of vehicles, aeroplanes and ships are shaped wedge like and pointed so that minimum friction is offered by
air.
Centripetal Force
Definition
“The force that causes an object to move along a curve (or a curved path) is called centripetal force.”
Mathematical Expression

the square of velocity and inversely proportional to the radius of the path Therefore,
a(c) ∝v2
a(c) ∝ 1/r
Combining both the equations:
a(c) ∝ v2/r
From Newton’s Second Law of Motion:
F = ma
=> F(c) = mv2/r
Where,
Fc = Centripetal Force m = Mass of object
v = Velocity of object r = Radius of the curved path

Banking of the roads Factors on which Fc Depends:


Fc depends upon the following factors:
Increase in the mass will increases Fc.
It increases with the square of velocity.
It decreases with the increase in radius of the curved path.

Examples
The centripetal force required by natural planets to move constantly round a circle is provided by the gravitational force
of the sun.
If a stone tied to a string is whirled in a circle, the required centripetal force is supplied to it by our hand. As a reaction
the stone exerts an equal force which is felt by our hand.

Centrifugal Force
Definition
“A force supposed to act outward on a body moving in a curve is known as centrifugal force.”
Explanation
Centrifugal force is actually a reaction to the centripetal force. It is a well-known fact that Fc is directed towards the
centre of the circle, so the centrifugal force, which is a force of reaction, is directed away from the centre of the circle or
the curved path.
According to Newton’s third law of motion action and reaction do not act on the same body, so the centrifugal
force does not act on the body moving round a circle, but it acts on the body that provides Fc.
Examples
If a stone is tied to one end of a string and it is moved round a circle, then the force exerted on the string on outward
direction is called centrifugal force.
The aeroplane moving in a circle exerts force in a direction opposite to the pressure of air.
When a train rounds a curve, the centrifugal force is also exerted on the track.

moves vertically and the other moves on A smooth horizontal surface

Consider two bodies A and B masses m1 and m2 respectively attached to the ends of an inextensible string as shown in the
figure above.Let the body A moves downwards with an acceleration a. Since the string is inextensible, therefore, body B
also moves over the horizontal surface with the same acceleration a. As the pulley is frictionless hence tension T will be

Since body A moves downwards, therefore, its weight m1g is greater than the tension in T in the string.
Net force acting on the body A = m1g – T
According to the Newton’s second law of motion:
m1g – T = m1a ... ... ... (1)
The forces acting on the body are:
I. Weight m2g of the body B acting downwards.
II. Reaction R of the horizontal surface acting on the body B in the upward direction.
III. Tension in the string pulling the body B horizontally on the smooth surface.
As body B has no vertical motion, hence resultant of vertical forces (m2g and R) must be zero.
Thus the net force acting on the body B is T.
According to the Newton’s second law of motion:
T = m2a ... ... ... (2)
Adding eqs. 1 and 2, we get acceleration a as:

result of motion.
3.10. A horse pulls the cart. If the action and reaction are equal and opposite then the how does the cart move?
Ans: The horse applies action force by feet on the road the reaction is given by road on horse due to which the cart tied to
the horse also move.
3.11. What is the law of conservation of momentum?
Ans : “When two or more bodies collide with one another the total momentum of the
system remains the same, provided no external force acts upon them.”
According to Law of conservation of momentum
Total Momentum before collision = Total Momentum after collision
m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2 v2

3.12. Why is the law of conservation of momentum important?


Ans : by using law of conservation of momentum it is possible to calculate, force , velocity, acceleration of a body. Most of
elementary particles were discovered by this law.
3.13. When a gun is fired, it recoils. Why?
Ans : according law of conservation of momentum the momentum gained by fired bullet is neutralized by equal and
opposite momentum given to the gun recoils back.
3.14. Describe two situations in which force of friction is needed.
Ans: The friction between walking person and surface of earth is necessary for walking.
To stop a moving vehicle force of friction between tyre and road is required if this is reduced by putting oil on the road
then it would be impossible to stop a vehicles.
3.15. How does oiling the moving parts of a machine lower the friction?
Ans : by oiling the various parts of a matching of friction is reduced which increase its efficiency
3.16. Describe ways to reduce friction.
Ans: Methods to reduce friction: -
i) Sliding parts should be highly polished to reduce friction.
ii) Friction of liquids is less than solids. Therefore oil or grease is applied between the parts of machinery.
iii) Rolling friction is less then sliding friction. Therefore sliding friction should be converted to rolling friction by using ball
bearings.

iv) Front side of vehicles, aeroplanes and ships are shaped wedge like and pointed so that minimum friction is offered by
air.

3.17. Why rolling friction is lower than sliding friction?


Ans: the interlocking between ups and down of two surface need not be ruptured in case of rolling while in case of sliding
these are to be ruptured and result to increase in friction .
3.18. What do you know about the following?
(i) Tension in a string
Ans: Tension in string is to neutralize applied force on the string this prevents it from moving.
(iii) Limiting force of friction
Ans: The force of friction on the body at rest lying in a rough surface is called force of static friction its value increases
with the increase of applied force .The maximum possible value of static friction if applied force made grater then it body
starts moving is called limiting force of static friction
(iv) Braking force
Ans: the bracking force is the force between brake pushing and wheel of vehicle. It is help to stop the wheels.
(v) Skidding of vehicles
Ans: when a force of friction between tyre and road is small then applying brakes tyre slide over the road .it is called
skidding of vehicles
(vi) Seatbelts
Ans: The seat belts provide opposition against falling ahead when vehicle is stopped suddenly
(vii) Banking of roads
Ans: the outer edge of road is made higher to provide reactional force on tyre which prevents it from slopping. It is called
banking of road.
(viii) Cream separator
Ans: in a cream separator milk is rotated and lighter particles of cream come at the axis of rotation and are separated
from milk and collected through the pipe.
3.19. What would happen if all friction suddenly disappears?
Ans: when the frictional force suddenly disappears the motion of the object would never be stopped.
3.20. Why the spinner of a washing machine is made to spin at a high speed?
Ans: at very high spinning speed the water and dirt particles are separate from cloths to clean them inside washing
machine.
