  1. minus 0 + 0    
  2. + 0 + +    
  3. O A A B B C C D    
  4. minus 0 minus 0    

    Answer:The correct answer is: O A A B B C C DThe portion O A of the graphs is convex upward. It represents negative acceleration. The portion A B represents negative acceleration. The portion A B represents that x is not changing with time. Clearly, it is a case of zero acceleration. The portion B C of the graph is concave upward. It represents positive acceleration. The portion C D is a straight line sloping upward to the right. It represents uniform velocity and hence acceleration is zero

    A ball is thrown vertically upwards. Which of the following plots represents the speed-time graph of the ball during its flight if the air resistance is not ignored

    For upward motion
    Effective acceleration equals negative open parentheses g plus a close parentheses
    And for downward motion
    Effective acceleration equals left parenthesis g minus a right parenthesis
    But both are constants. So the slope of speed-time graph will be constant

    A stone dropped from a building of height h and it reaches after t seconds on earth. From the same building if two stones are thrown (one upwards and other downwards) with the same velocity u and they reach the earth surface after t subscript 1 end subscript and t subscript 2 end subscript seconds respectively, then

    If a stone is dropped from height h then
    h equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t to the power of 2 end exponent(i)
    if a stone is thrown upward with velocity u then
    h equals negative u blank t subscript 1 end subscript plus fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t subscript 1 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript(ii)
    If a stone is thrown downward with velocity u then
    h equals u t subscript 2 end subscript plus fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t subscript 2 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript(iii)
    From (i) (ii) and (iii) we get

    u t subscript 2 end subscript plus fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t subscript 2 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t to the power of 2 end exponent(v)
    Dividing (iv) and (v) we get
    therefore fraction numerator negative u t subscript 1 end subscript over denominator u t subscript 2 end subscript end fraction equals fraction numerator fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g left parenthesis t to the power of 2 end exponent minus t subscript 1 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript right parenthesis over denominator fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g left parenthesis t to the power of 2 end exponent minus t subscript 2 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript right parenthesis end fraction
