  • Q8

    Tell which of the following statements will be True about the observation given here? If the gravitational attraction of Earth suddenly disappears, then(a) Both mass as well as the weight will be zero.(b) Weight of the body will become zero but the mass will remain unchanged.(c) Weight of the body will remain unchanged but the mass will become zero.(d) Neither mass nor weight will be zero

    Neither mass nor weight will be zero

    Weight of the body will remain unchanged but the mass will become zero

    Weight of the body will become zero but the mass will remain unchanged.

    Both mass as well as the weight will be zero.

  • Q9

     Tell which of the following statements are False?(a) A spaceship entering Earth’s atmosphere is likely to catch fire.(b) ve > v0 for Earth.(c) A surface at every point of which the gravitational potential remains same is called equipotential surface.(d) g at pole is lesser than at the equator.

    ve > v0 for Earth.

    Escape velocity  doesnot depend on mass of the body

    A spaceship entering Earth’s atmosphere is likely to catch fire.

    g at pole is lesser than at the equator.
