Multiple Choice Questions: This section contains 20 multiple choice questions. Each question has 4 choices (1), (2), (3) and (4), out of which ONLY ONE is correct.

Choose the correct answer :

1. Identify the pair of physical quantities that have same dimensions :

(A) velocity gradient and decay constant

(B) wien’s constant and Stefan constant

(C) angular frequency and angular momentum

(D) wave number and Avogadro number

Answer (A)

Sol. Velocity gradient

\(\begin{array}{l}=\frac{dv}{dx}\end{array} \)

⇒ Dimensions are

\(\begin{array}{l}\frac{\left [LT^{-1} \right ]}{\left [ L \right ]}=\left [ T^{-1} \right ]\end{array} \)

Decay constant λ has dimensions of [T–1] because of the relation

\(\begin{array}{l}\frac{dN}{dt}=-\lambda N\end{array} \)

⇒ Velocity gradient and decay constant have same dimensions.

2. The distance between Sun and Earth is R. The duration of year if the distance between Sun and Earth becomes 3R will be :

(A) √3 years

(B) 3 years

(C) 9 years

(D) 3√3 years

Answer (D)

Sol. We know that

\(\begin{array}{l}T^{2}\propto R^3\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}\Rightarrow\left ( \frac{T’}{T} \right )^2=\left ( \frac{3R}{R} \right )^3\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}\Rightarrow \frac{T’}{T}=3\sqrt{3}\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}\Rightarrow T’=3\sqrt{3}\end{array} \)

3. A stone of mass m tied to a string is being whirled in a vertical circle with a uniform speed. The tension in the string is

(A) the same throughout the motion.

(B) minimum at the highest position of the circular path.

(C) minimum at the lowest position of the circular path.

(D) minimum when the rope is in the horizontal position.

Answer (B)


JEE Main 2022 June 24 Shift 2 Physics A3

At any θ:

\(\begin{array}{l}T-mg\ cos\theta=\frac{mv^2}{R}\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}\Rightarrow T=mg\ cos\theta+\frac{mv^2}{R}\end{array} \)

Since v is constant,

T will be minimum when cosθ is minimum.

⇒ θ = 180° corresponds to Tminimum.
