• An object with a constant speed might be accelerated.
• When a body is accelerated, its speed may or may not be changed.
• Dirty cloths containing grease and oil are cleaned by adding detergents to water. The detergents reduce drastically the surface tension between water and oil and strains are removed.
• Motion of a oscillating liquid column in a U-tube is periodic but not simple harmonic.
• A monkey sits on the pan of a spring scale kept in an elevator. The reading of the spring scale would be maximum when the elevator accelerates upward.
• A ball is thrown vertically upwards assuming the air resistance to be constant and considerable, the time of ascent < time of descent.
• A man in a train moving with constant velocity drops a ball on the platform. The path of the ball seen by an observer standing on the platform is a parabola.

• A car accelerates from rest with acceleration 1.2m/s^2. A bus moves with constant speed of 12m/s in a parallax lane. The car then would take 20s from its start to meet the bus,
• The value of specific gravity remains same in all system of units.
• 2 teams are pulling a rope with equal and opposite forces each of 5KN in a tug of war so that a condition of equilibrium exists. The tensile force in the rope would be 5KN.
• A body moves with a constant speed along a curved path in acceleration is perpendicular to its velocity.
• Under non contract forces electrostatic and gravitational forces come. If the KE of a body is increased by 300%, the momentum would increase 100%.
• If the momentum of a body is increased by 50%, then its KE would increase to 125%.
• A body is lifted by a man to height of 1m in 30 s. Another man lifts the same mass to the same height in 60 s. Then the work done by them are in 1:1 ratio.
• The distance between two crests in a wave is given by wavelength.
• If a bomb dropped from an airplane explodes in mid-air, its KE (Kinetic Energy) increases.
• A light body A and a heavy body B have equal KE of transaction. Then B has larger momentum than A.
• When two bodies stick together after collision, it is said to be completely inelastic.
• A bullet hits and gets embedded in a solid block resting on a horizontal friction less table. Then momentum is conserved.
• A rocket works on the principle of conservation of linear momentum.
• A particle revolves round a circular path with a constant speed the acceleration of the particle is along the radius.
• Roadways are banked on curves so that the wear and tear of tyre may be avoided.
• If a gymnast, standing on a rotating stool with his arms and stretched, suddenly lowers his arm his angular velocity remains constant.
• When the external torque on a system is zero, there will be the conservation of its total energy.
• If the radius of the earth were shrink by 1%, its mass remaining the same, the value of g on the earth’s surface would increase by 2%/
• The weight of the body at the center of the earth is 0.
• Weightlessness experienced in spaceship is due to absence of gravity.
• Satellite having same orbital period as the period of rotation of the earth about its own axis is known as Geostationary satellite.
