**Question 1.** You find your mass to be 42 kg
on a weighing machine. Is your
mass more or less than 42 kg?

**Question 2.** You have a bag of cotton and an
iron bar, each indicating a mass
of 100 kg when measured on a
weighing machine. In reality, one
is heavier than other. Can you
say which one is heavier
and why?

NCERT Solutions Exercises Questions

**Question 1.** How does the force of gravitation between two objects change
when the distance between them is reduced to half ?

**Question 2.** Gravitational force acts on all objects in proportion to their
masses. Why then, a heavy object does not fall faster than a
light object?

**Question 3.** 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 × 1024 kg and radius of the earth is 6.4 × 106 m.)

**Question 4.** The earth and the moon are attracted to each other by
gravitational force. Does the earth attract the moon with a force
that is greater or smaller or the same as the force with which
the moon attracts the earth? Why?

**Question 5.** If the moon attracts the earth, why does the earth not move
towards the moon?

**Question 6.** What happens to the force between two objects, if

(i) the mass of one object is doubled?

(ii) the distance between the objects is doubled and tripled?

(iii) the masses of both objects are doubled?

**Question 7.** What is the importance of universal law of gravitation?

**Question 8.** What is the acceleration of free fall?

**Question 9.** What do we call the gravitational force between the earth and
an object?

**Question 10.** Amit buys few grams of gold at the poles as per the instruction
of one of his friends. He hands over the same when he meets
him at the equator. Will the friend agree with the weight of gold
bought? If not, why? [Hint: The value of g is greater at the
poles than at the equator.]

**Question 11.** Why will a sheet of paper fall slower than one that is crumpled
into a ball?

**Question 12.** Gravitational force on the surface of the moon is only
1
6
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?

**Question 13.** A ball is thrown vertically upwards with a velocity of 49 m/s.
Calculate

(i) the maximum height to which it rises,

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

**Question 14.** A stone is released from the top of a tower of height 19.6 m.
Calculate its final velocity.

**Question 15.** A stone is thrown vertically upward with an initial velocity of
40 m/s. Taking g = 10 m/s2, find the maximum height reached
by the stone. What is the net displacement and the total
distance covered by the stone?

**Question 16.** Calculate the force of gravitation between the earth and the
Sun, given that the mass of the earth = 6 × 1024 kg and of the
Sun = 2 × 1030 kg. The average distance between the two is
1.5 × 1011 m.

**Question 17.** A stone is allowed to fall from the top of a tower 100 m high
and at the same time another stone is projected vertically
upwards from the ground with a velocity of 25 m/s. Calculate
when and where the two stones will meet.

**Question 18.** A ball thrown up vertically returns to the thrower after 6 s.
Find

(a) the velocity with which it was thrown up,

(b) the maximum height it reaches, and

(c) its position after 4 s.

**Question 19.** In what direction does the buoyant force on an object immersed
in a liquid act?

**Question 20.** Why does a block of plastic released under water come up to
the surface of water?

**Question 21.** The volume of 50 g of a substance is 20 cm3. If the density of
water is 1 g cm–3, will the substance float or sink?

**Question 22.** The volume of a 500 g sealed packet is 350 cm3. Will the packet
float or sink in water if the density of water is 1 g cm–3? What
will be the mass of the water displaced by this packet?
