Q
##### Motion

Question:

Fig 8.11 shows the distance-time graph of three objects A, B and C. Study the graph and answer the following questions: (a) Which of the three is travelling the fastest?

(b) Are all three ever at the same point on the road?

(c) How far has C travelled when B passes A?

(d) How far has B travelled by the time it passes C?

(a) Slope of graph

Speed = slope of the graph

Since slope of object B is greater than objects A and C, it is travelling the fastest.

(b) All three objects A, B and C never meet at a single point. Thus, they were never at the same point on road.

(c) On the distance axis:

7 small boxes = 4 km

1 small box = km

Initially, object C is 4 blocks away from the origin,

Initial distance of object C from origin

Distance of object C from origin when B passes A = 8 km

Distance covered by C

Hence, C has travelled a distance of 5.714 km when B passes A.

(d) Distance covered by B at the time it passes C = 9 boxes

Distance

Hence, B has travelled a distance of 5.143 km when B passes A.
