Question 14 of 25

14. The time rate of change of displacement is called velocity. As distance is to displacement, so speed is to velocity: the crucial difference between the two is that speed is a scalar and velocity is a vector quantity. In everyday conversation, we usually say speed when we talk about how fast something is moving. However, in physics, it is often important to determine the direction of this motion, so you’ll find velocity come up in physics problems far more frequently than speed.

How can velocity of a moving object be calculated?
A.  
B.  
C.  
D.

However, in physics, it is often important to determine the direction of this motion, so you’ll find velocity come up in physics problems far more frequently than speed.

If a body covers a displacement of 50 meters in 10 seconds. What is the velocity of the object?

Question 17 of 25

17. The maximum stress up to which a material can exhibit the property of elasticity is called the elastic limit. If the deformation forces applied cause the stress in the material to exceed the elastic limit, there will be a permanent set in it. That is the body will not regain its original shape and size even after the removal of the deforming force completely.

What could be the possible reason if a body is not regaining its original shape after the removal of deforming force?.
A.  
B.  
C.  
D.
