When an object is shot from the bottom of a long, smooth inclined plane kept at an angle of $$60^\circ$$ with horizontal, it can travel a distance $$x_1$$ along the plane. But when the inclination is decreased to $$30^\circ$$ and the same object is shot with the same velocity, it can travel $$x_2$$ distance. Then $$x_1:x_2$$ will be:
1. $$1:2\sqrt{3}$$
2. $$1:\sqrt{2}$$
3. $$\sqrt{2}:1$$
4. $$1:\sqrt{3}$$

If a stone is projected vertically upward from the ground at a speed of 10 m/s, then it's: (g = 10 $\mathrm{m}/{\mathrm{s}}^{2}$)

1.  Potential energy will be maximum after 0.5 s

2.  Kinetic energy will be maximum again after 1 s

3.  Kinetic energy = potential energy at a height of 2.5 m from the ground

4.  Potential energy will be minimum after 1 s

A spherical ball of mass 20 kg is stationary at the top of a hill of height 100 m. It slides down a smooth surface to the ground, then climbs up another hill of height 30 m and finally slides down to a horizontal base at a height of 20 m above the ground. The velocity attained by the ball is:

 1 $$10 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$$ 2 $$10 \sqrt{30} \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$$ 3 $$40 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$$ 4 $$20 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$$
