(vi) Motion of a train on a straight bridge

**Answer 1:-**

(i) Oscillatory motion

(ii) Straight line motion

(iii) Circular motion

(iv) Oscillatory motion

(v) Oscillatory motion

(vi) Straight line motion

**Question 2:-**

**Which of the following are not correct?**

(i) The basic unit of time is second.

(ii) Every object moves with a constant speed.

(iii) Distances between two cities are measured in kilometres.

(iv) The time period of a given pendulum is constant.

(v) The speed of a train is expressed in m/h.

**Answer 2:-**

The following statements are not correct –

(ii) Every object moves with a constant speed.

(iv) The time period of a given pendulum is constant.

(vi) The speed of a train is expressed in m/h.

**Question 3:-**

**A simple pendulum takes 32 s to complete 20 oscillations. What is the time period of the pendulum?**

**Answer 3:-**

Time period = time taken to complete oscillations/ Number of oscillations

Time period = 32/20 = **1.6 s**

**Question 4:-**

**The distance between two stations is 240 km. A train takes 4 hours to cover this distance. Calculate the speed of the train.**

**Answer 4:-**

**Given:** Distance between two stations = 240 km

Time taken to cover this distance = 4 hours

**Formula:** Speed= Distance Travelled/ Time taken

**Calculation:** Speed = 240/4 = **60 km/h**

** ****Question 5:-**

**The odometer of a car reads 57321.0 km when the clock shows the time 08:30 AM. What is the distance moved by the car, if at 08:50 AM, the odometer reading has changed to 57336.0 km? Calculate the speed of ****the car in km/min during this time. Express the speed in km/h also.**

**Answer 5:-**

**Given:**Reading of odometer at 08:30 AM = 57321.0 km

Reading of odometer at 08:50 AM = 57336.0 km

**Formula:** Speed = Distance travelled/ Time taken

**Calculation:** Distance travelled = (57336.0 – 57321.0) km = 15 km

Time taken = 20 min = 1/3 hour

Speed = 15 × 3 = **45 km/h**

Or

Speed = 15/20 = **0.75 km/min**

**Question 6:-**

**Salma takes 15 minutes from her house to reach her school on a bicycle. If the bicycle has a speed of 2 m/s, calculate the distance between her house and the school.**

**Answer 6:-**

**Given:**Time taken to reach school = 15 min

Speed of bicycle = 2 m/s

**Formula:** Distance = Speed × Time

**Calculation:** Time taken = 15 × 60 = 900 s

Distance = 2 × 900 = 1800 m = **1.8 km**

**Question 7:-**

**Show the shape of the distance-time graph for the motion in the following cases:**

**(i) ****A car moving with a constant speed.**

**(ii) ****A car parked on a side road.**

**Answer 7:-**

(i)

(ii)

**Question 8:-**

**Which of the following relations is correct?**

(i) Speed = Distance × Time

(ii) Speed = Distance/Time

(iii) Speed = Time/Distance

(iv) Speed = 1/ Distance × Time

**Answer 8:-**

**(ii) Speed = Distance/ Time**

**Question 9:-**

**The basic unit of speed is:**

(i) km/min

(ii) m/min

(iii) km/h

(iv) m/s

**Answer 9:-**

**(v) ****m/s**

**Question 10:-**

**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. The total distance covered by the car is:**

(i) 100 km

(ii) 25 km

(iii) 15 km

(iv) 10 km

**Answer 10:-**

**(ii) 25 km**

Formula: Distance = Speed × Time

Distance travelled first time = 40 × 15/60 = 10 km

Distance travelled first time = 60 × 15/60 = 15 km

Total distance travelled = **25 km**

**Question 11:-**

**Suppose the two photographs, shown in Fig. 13.1 and Fig. 13.2, had been taken at an interval of 10 seconds. If a distance of 100 metres is shown by 1 cm in these photographs, calculate the speed of the fastest car.**

**Answer 11:-**

The fastest car in image is the cyan car.

The distance travelled by fastest car in image is 1 cm.

According to scale, 1cm = 100 m

Therefore, total distance travelled = 100 m

Formula: Speed = Distance/Time = 100/10 m/s

= **10 m/s**

**Question 12:-**

**Fig. 13.15 shows the distance-time graph for the motion of two vehicles A and B. Which oneof them is moving faster?**

**Answer 12:-**

The slope of distance-time graph gives speed.

In the given graph slop of graph corresponding to vehicle A is greater than that of B. Hence, **vehicle A is moving faster.**

**Question 13:-**

**Which of the following distance-time graphs shows a truck moving with speed which is not constant?**

**Answer 13:-**

The graph given in **option (iii)** is not moving with constant speed.

The distance-time graph of object moving with constant speed is a straight line. Graphs given in option (i), (ii), (iv) are straight line graphs. Hence, (iii) is the answer.

**Topics Covered in Chapter 13 – Motion and Time ****Class 7 Science ****:-**

### Important Terms Relevant to understand NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Science **Chapter 13 – Motion and Time **: –

**Bar graph:** It is a type of graph in which data is represented by drawing rectangular bars.

**Graphs:** It is a method to represent data to make it look interesting and easy to interpret.

**Non-uniform motion:** The motion in which speed of an object varies with time is called non- uniform motion.

**Oscillation:** The to and fro motion of any object about an axis is called oscillatory motion.

**Simple pendulum:** It is an instrument that oscillates about an axis. It consists of a weight suspended from a point with the help of a string.

**Speed:** Speed of an object is the distance travelled by that object per unit time.

**Time period:** The time taken by a single oscillation of any instrument is called time period of that instrument.

**Uniform motion:** The motion in which the speed of an object remains constant with time is called uniform motion.

**Unit of time:** The SI unit of time is seconds. It is represented by s. Other units of time include minutes, hours etc.
