Explain why some of the leaves may get detached from a tree if we vigorously shake its branch.

Answers (1)

This can be explained with the help of the concept of inertia. When the tree is at rest, its leaves are also at rest. But when we bring the tree in motion by means of shaking it, due to the inertia of leaves they still tend to be in rest. Thus force is acting on leaves vigorously with changing direction rapidly. This results in detaching of leaves from the tree.
