Exam Questions NCERT Class 9 Science Chapter 11 work And Energy

Question: In a tug-of-war one team gives way to the other. What work is being done and by whom?
Answer : The winning team does work. The work is equal to the product of the resultant force and the displacement undergone by the losing team.

Question: What will cause greater change in kinetic energy of a body? Changing its mass or changing its velocity?

Question. List two essential conditions for work to be done.
Answer : (i) A force must act and
(ii) There should be displacement in the body.

Question: A force of 7 N acts on an object. The displacement is, say 8 m, in the direction of the force. Let us take it that the force acts on the object through the displacement . What is the work done in this case?
Answer : Given,
     displacement = 8 m,
                Force = 7 N
Now, Work done = Force × Displacement
                        = 7 × 8 = 56 J

Question: What is the work done by a coolie walking on a horizontal platform with a load on his head?
Answer : In order to balance the load on his head, the coolie applies a force on it in the upward direction, equal to its weight. His displacement is along the horizontal  direction. Thus, the angle between force F and displacement is 90°. Therefore, work done W = Fs cos q = Fs cos 90° = 0.

Question: Distinguish between work, energy and power. State the SI units for each of these quantities.
Answer : Work : It is defined as the product of force applied and the distance moved by the body on the application of the force. In SI unit it is measured in joule.
Energy : It is defined as the capacity of a body to do work. In SI unit it is measured in joule. 
Power : It is defined as the rate of doing work. It measures how fast or slow the work is done. In SI unit it is measured in watt unit.

Question:Define work. How is work measured? When is work done by a force negative?
Answer : Work is said to be done if force acting on an object displaces it through a certain distance.
It is measured as the product of force and displacement.
Work done is negative if force and displacement are in the opposite direction.
Question: What is the work done by the force of gravity in the following cases?

(a) Satellite moving around the Earth in a circular orbit of radius 35000 km.
(b) A stone of mass 250 g is thrown up through a height of 2.5 m.
Answer :
(a) Zero, as the displacement in one complete revolution is zero.
(b) Given m = 250 g = 0.25 kg, h = 2.5 m, g = 10
                                    ms–2, W = ?
                              Now, W = Fs = mg × h
                                                 = 0.25 × 10 × 2.5 = 6.25 J
Question: Define 1 J of work.

Answer : Work done = Force x Displacement Force, F = 1 N and displacement, s = 1 m, then the work done by the force will be 1 Nm or 1 J. Thus, 1 J is the amount of work done on an object when a force of 1 N displaces it by 1 m along the line of action of the force.

Question: What is the amount of work done by a force when a body moves in a circular path?
Answer :
Work done is given by the expression W = Fs cos q
. When a body moves in a circular path, then the
displacement (s) is zero. Therefore, work done is
W = F × 0 = 0.
