A block of mass m=10 kg rests on horizontal table. The coefficient of friction between the block and the table is 0.05. When hit by a bullet of mass 50 g moving with speed \nu, that gets embedded in it, the block moves and comes to stop after moving a distance of 2 m on the table. If a freely falling object were to acquire speed \frac{v }{10} after being dropped from height H, then neglecting energy losses and taking g=10 ms-2, the value of H is close to :

  • Option 1)

    0.2 km

  • Option 2)

    0.3 km

  • Option 3)

    0.4 km

  • Option 4)

    0.5 km

As we learnt in

Kinetic or Dynamic Friction -

f_{K}\;\alpha\ R

f_{K}=\mu_{K} R

f_{K}= kinetic friction 

\mu_{K}= coefficient of kinetic friction

R = reaction

- wherein

f_{K}<F_{l}

\therefore\ \mu_{K}<\mu_{s}

\mu_{K}=depends on the nature of surface in contact.

 

 f=\mu(M+m)g\ \; \Rightarrow\ \; a=\frac{f}{M+m}=\frac{\mu (M+m)g}{(M+m)}=\mu g

a=0.05\tims 10=0.5 ms^{-2}

u=v_{0}=\frac{0.05v}{10.05}

v^{2}=u^{2}-2as\ \; \Rightarrow\ \; v^{2}+u^{2}=2as

v = 0       u2 = 2as

\left(\frac{0.05}{10.05} \right )^{2}=2\times0.5\times2\ \; \Rightarrow\ \; v=201\sqrt{2}

v^{2}=u^{2}+2gH\ \; \Rightarrow\ \; v^{2}=2gH=v=\sqrt{2gH}

\frac{v}{10}=\sqrt{2gH}\ \; \Rightarrow\ \; \frac{201\sqrt{2}}{10}=\sqrt{2\times 10\times H}

H = 40 m = H = 0.04 km
