**3. A man walks for 1 minute, at a speed of 1 m/s, along a straight track. The total distance covered by him is 1 m.**

**4. An object, moving along a straight line, is said to be in uniform motion if it covers regularly increasing distances in equal intervals of time.**

**5. The time period of a simple pendulum, that takes 42 seconds to complete 20 oscillations, equals 2.1 seconds.**

**6. The distance-time graph, for a car kept parked on a side road, is a straight line parallel to the time axis.**

**Answer:** (1) False (2) True (3) False (4) False (5) True (6) True

**C. Tick the correct option.**

**Answer:**

1. distance = speed x time

2. 30 minutes

3. 15 km

4. option (a)

5. 4 (t_{1}+t_{2})

6. m/second

**D. Answer the following questions in brief.**

**Q. 1. A boy walks to his school with a constant speed of 4 km/h and reaches there in 30 minutes. Find the distance of the school from his house.**

**Answer:**

Speed = 4 km/h

Time taken = 30 minutes = ½ h = 0.5 h

Therefore,

Distance = speed x time

= 4 km/h x ½ h

= 2 km

Hence, distance of school from his house is 2 km.

**Q. 2. The distance between two stations is 216 km. A bus takes 4 hours to cover this distance. Calculate the average speed of the bus in km/hour.**

**Answer:**

**Q. 3. Two Cars, A and B. (starting, at the same time, from the same point) are moving with average speeds of 40 km/h and 50 km/h, respectively, in the same direction. Find how far will Car B be from Car A after 3 hours.**

**Q. 4. A car moves with a speed of 40 km/h for 15 minutes and then with a speed of 60 km/h for the next 15 minutes. Find the total distance covered by the car in these 30 minutes.**

**Answer:**

Distance covered in 1st 15 minutes = 40 km/h x 15 minutes

= 40 km/h x ¼ h

= 10 km

Distance covered in 2nd 15 minutes = 60 km/h x 15 minutes

= 60 km/h x ¼ h

= 15 km

Therefore, Total distance covered = 10 km + 15 km

= 25 km

**Q. 5. Define the term ‘Periodic motion. Give two examples of periodic motions that can be used to measure time.**

**Answer:**

Periodic motion – motion, which repeats itself after a regular interval of time, is called periodic motion.

Examples: (1) motion of the hands of a clock.

(2) motion of the moon around the earth.

**Q. 6. Distinguish between uniform and non-uniform motion. Give one example of each.**

**Answer:**

**Uniform motion**

An object is said to be in uniform motion when it moves along a straight path, and covers equal distances in equal intervals of time, howsoever small these intervals of time may be.

Example: Motion of a body along a straight path covering equal distances in equal intervals of time.

**Non-uniform motion**

When an object, (1) moving along a straight path, covers unequal distances in equal intervals of time or (2) does not move along a straight path, its motion, is called a non-uniform motion.

Example: Motion of a free-falling object.

**Q. 7. Draw the shape of distance-time graph for:**

**(a) a man, waiting for a bus, standing at one point, on a bus-stand.**

**Answer:**

**(b) a man, walking on a level, straight and narrow road, with a constant speed.**

**Answer:**

**E. Answer the following questions.**

**Answer 1:**

Motion of the farmer – non-uniform, as he covers unequal distances in equal intervals of time.

Average speed of the farmer = total distance covered/time taken

= 240 m/16 min.

= 240 m / 960 seconds {change min. into second}

= ¼ m/s

= 0.25 m/s

**Answer 2:**

Speed of sound = 340 m/s

Time taken = 6 seconds

Therefore, distance = 340 m/s x 6 seconds

= 2040 m

= 2.04 km

Hence, thundering sound was produced at a distance of 2.04 km from Shivam.

**Answer 3:**

(a) A simple pendulum can be made by a metal ball attached to taut light string, or thread, that is fixed rigidly at one end.

(b) Number of complete oscillations = 5

Total time taken = 10 seconds

Time period of the pendulum = 10/5 = 2 seconds

**Answer 4:**

Object A is in uniform motion as it covers equal distances in equal intervals of time.

Object B is in non-uniform motion as it does not cover equal distances in equal intervals of time

**Answer 5:**

(1) Value of ‘P’ = 3 m, Value of ‘Q’ = 12 m

(2) Value of ‘R’ = 12 seconds
