1 pointsTwo identical particles move towards each other with velocity 2v and v respectively. The velocity of their centre of mass is
CorrectWe have, Mass of first particles (m_{1}) = m; Mass of second particle (m_{2}) = m; Velocity of first particle (v_{1}) = 2v and velocity of second particle (v_{2}) = v (Minus sing due to opposite direction).
We know that velocity of their centre of mass (v_{cm}) = (m_{1} v_{1} + m_{2} v_{2})/(m_{1} + m_{2}) = [(m × 2v) + m(v)]/(m+m) = (2mv – mv)/ 2m = mv/2m = v/2.IncorrectWe have, Mass of first particles (m_{1}) = m; Mass of second particle (m_{2}) = m; Velocity of first particle (v_{1}) = 2v and velocity of second particle (v_{2}) = v (Minus sing due to opposite direction).

6. Question
1 pointsConsider a system of two particles having masses m_{1} and m_{2}. If the particle of mass m_{1} is pushed towards the mass centre of particles through a distance d, by what distance would the particle of mass m_{2} move, so as to keep centre of the particles at the original position?
CorrectGiven: Mass of first particle = m_{1}; Mass of the second particle = m_{2}; Distance through which the first particle is pushed toward which the first particle is pushed towards mass centre (d_{1}) = d.
Let distance of first particle from mass centre = a and distance of second particle form mass centre = b (Minus sign due to opposite side of second particle from mass centre)
We know that sum of moments of masses about mass centre is zero.
Therefore initial sum of moments of mass = m_{1}a + m_{2}(b) = 0 or m_{1}a – m_{2}(b) = 0
Similarly, final sum of moments after the mass m_{1} is pushed = m_{1 }(ad_{1}) + m_{2}(bd_{2}) = 0
d_{2} = m_{1}d / m_{2}
(Where d_{2} is the distance moved by second particle towards the mass centre and negative sign indicates direction of movement of second particle).IncorrectGiven: Mass of first particle = m_{1}; Mass of the second particle = m_{2}; Distance through which the first particle is pushed toward which the first particle is pushed towards mass centre (d_{1}) = d.

1 pointsTwo blocks of masses 10Kg and 4Kg are connected by a spring of negligible mass and placed on a friction less horizontal surface. An impulse gives a velocity of 14ms^{1} to the heavier block in the direction of the lighter block. The velocity of the centre of mass is
CorrectGiven that Mass of the first block (m_{1}) = 10 Kg; Mass of second block (m_{2}) = 4 Kg; Velocity of first block due to impulse (v_{1}) = 14 ms^{1} and velocity of second block (v_{2}) = 0 (because the impulsive force acts only on the first block).
We know that the velocity of the centre of mass (v_{cm}) = (m_{1} v_{1} + m_{2} v_{2})/(m_{1}+m_{2}) = [(10×14) + (4×0)]/(10+4) = 140/14 = 10 ms^{1}.IncorrectGiven that Mass of the first block (m_{1}) = 10 Kg; Mass of second block (m_{2}) = 4 Kg; Velocity of first block due to impulse (v_{1}) = 14 ms^{1} and velocity of second block (v_{2}) = 0 (because the impulsive force acts only on the first block).
We know that the velocity of the centre of mass (v_{cm}) = (m_{1} v_{1} + m_{2} v_{2})/(m_{1}+m_{2}) = [(10×14) + (4×0)]/(10+4) = 140/14 = 10 ms^{1}.UnattemptedGiven that Mass of the first block (m_{1}) = 10 Kg; Mass of second block (m_{2}) = 4 Kg; Velocity of first block due to impulse (v_{1}) = 14 ms^{1} and velocity of second block (v_{2}) = 0 (because the impulsive force acts only on the first block).
