# Free Objective Test 01 Practice Test - 11th and 12th

### Question 1

A force F=−K(yi+aj) (where K is a positive constant) acts on a particle moving in the xy-plane. Starting from the origin, the particle is taken along the positive x-axis to the point (a, 0) and then parallel to the y-axis to the point (a, a). The total work done by the force F on the particles is

−2Ka2

2Ka2

−Ka2

Ka2

#### SOLUTION

Solution :C

While moving from (0,0) to (a,0)

Along positive x-axis, y = 0 ∴→F=−kx^j

i.e. force is in negative y-direction while displacement is in positive x-direction.

∴W1=0

Because force is perpendicular to displacement

Then particle moves from (a,0) to (a,a) along a line parallel to y-axis (x = +a) during this →F=−k(y^i+a^j)

The first component of force, −ky^i will not contribute any work because this components is along negative x-direction (−^i) while displacement is in positive y-direction (a,0) to (a,a).

The second component of force i.e. −ka^j

∴W2=(−ka^j)(a^j)=(−ka)(a)=−ka2

So net work done on the particle W=W1+W2

=0+(−ka2)=−ka2

### Question 2

Which of the following is a scalar quantity

Displacement

Electric field

Acceleration

Work

4 times

#### SOLUTION

Solution :A

Work = Force × Displacement

If unit of force and length be increased by four times then the unit of energy will increase by 16 times.

### Question 4
