Option A 2.0ms^2
Option B 3ms^2
Option C 4ms^2
Option D 5ms^2
solution
recall that acc = final velocity(v)  initial velocity(u) divided by change in time
i.e acc = (v  u)/t = (100  3)/35 = 2.8 = 3m/s^2
so correct option is B
Question 2 A body of mass 2kg moves round a circle of radius 2m with a constant speed of 10m/s. Calculate the force toward the centre..
Option A 40N
Option B 50N
Option C 80N
Option D 100N
solution
the force that acts toward the center is centripetal force
so F(c) = mv^{2}/r
m = 2kg, r = 2m and v = 10m/s
so F = 2*10^2/2 = 10^2 = 100N
so correct option is D
