Question 1:

Write down two real-life examples where the object is moving with positive velocity but having negative acceleration?


1. Step on the breaks of your car you have positive velocity and negative acceleration assuming that your coordinate system is situated such that the direction you are traveling is positive.

2. Stone threw straight up. As long as it is climbing up, it has positive velocity and negative acceleration.

Question 2:

Read the following statements carefully, discuss which Newton's law of motion is applicable, and also explain the reason. 



Newton law of Motion 

The explanation according to Newton  

  1. A child riding a merry-go-round lets go and is thrown off ride.

Newton 1st law of  motion

The important part of Newton’s 1st  law of motion to recall is that objects will remain in motion in the same direction. The rotational motion of the child will result in the constant velocity in the direction tangent to the edge of the ride.

  1. You need more force to move and accelerate a heavier object than lighter object.

Newton's 2nd law of motion.

According to Newton's 2nd law of motion, acceleration is directly proportional to the net force.

Therefore, we need more force to move and accelerate a heavier object than lighter object.

  1. If you release a balloon in the air

Newton 3rd law of motion 

According to Newton's 3rd law of motion action and reaction are equal but in opposite directions.

The action is by the balloon that pushes the air out of it when set free.

The reaction of the air which escapes out from the balloon acts on the balloon. It is due to this reaction of the escaping air that moves the balloon forward.

Question 3:

In the given figure two objects are hung on a frictionless pulley. The block of mass (m1) moves down and the bucket of mass (m2) moves up. Find out the magnitude of acceleration (a) of these two objects and tension (T) in the string.  (Neglect the masses of pulley and rope)


The force that affects the bucket m2:

W2 --------weight

T---------------Tension force by which the rope affects the bucket 

The force that affects the block m1:  


T1 -------Tension force by which the rope affect the block

T2 -------Tension of force by which the rope affect the block

For bucket the equation to scalar form: 



Because we leave the mass of the pulley system and the rope out of the account, they have no moment of inertia and don’t affect the tension of the forces. The following hold for the magnitude of the tension force.


We write the above equation 

T-W2 =m2 a2 ------ 3

W1-2T=m1a1 ------- 4

Relation between the magnitude of the acceleration a1 and a2 

If the bucket goes up a distance S, the block goes down a distance S/2

S=a2 t2

=a1 t2

By above two-equation to get 


2a1=a2 ----- 5

So, the equation (3) and equation (4) can be written as 

T-m2 g=m22a1 ------- 6

m1g - 2T=m1a1 ------7

We have two equations (6) and (7) in two variables T and a1.

From them we can determine the magnitude of the acceleration a1 and the force T. we multiply equation (6) by 2 and both equations up:


(m1+2m2)g= (m1+4m2)a1

a1 = ------ 8 

According to equation 5 

a2= 2------ 9

The magnitude of the tension force T is given for example by the equation (6)



T= m22+m2g

After simplify we get


Put m1=30 kg, m2=15 kg and g=10m/s2 in equation (8) (9) and (10)




a2 = 2(6.67) =13.33m/s2


T= = 150N
