1. Show that when masses P and Q are connected by a string over the edge of a table, the tension is the same wheter P hangs and Q is on the table or Q hangs and P is on the table.

1. Two balls impinge directly and the interchange their velocities after impact. Show that they are perfectly elastic and of equal mass.

PART – C

Answer any TWO questions:                                                                 (2 x 20 = 40 marks)

1. a) Two strings AB and AC are knotted at A, where a weight W is attached. If the weight

hangs freely and in the position of equilibrium, with BC horizontal,

AB : BC : CA = 2 : 4 : 3, show that the tensions in the strings are

1. b) A system of forces in the plane of D ABC is equivalent to a single force at A, acting

along the internal bisector of the angle BAC and a couple of moment G1.  If the moments

of the system about B and C are respectively G2 and G3,  prove that (b+c) G1 = bG2 + cG3.

(10 + 10)

1. a) Two unlike parallel forces P and Q (P>Q) act at A and B respectively. Show that if the

direction of P be reversed, the resultant is displaced through the distance .

1. b) A particle moving in a st. line is subject to a resistance KV3 producing retardation

where v is the velocity.  Show that if v is the velocity at any time t when the distance is

s,  and  where u is the initial velocity.                              (10 + 10)

1. Derive the equation to the path of the projectile in the form

1. A particle falls under gravity in a medium where the resistance varies as the square of the velocity. Discuss the motion.
