Mechanics is the study of motion of objects and its causes in relation with the force and displacement. It also deals with the subsequent effects of forces on the bodies and its environment. Classical mechanics relates motion of objects with the application of various external forces and quantum mechanics describes the phenomena of motion at atomic level.
Question 1: Which equation of Impulse is derived from Newton's third law of motion?
a) F.dt = m.da b) F.dt = m.dv
c) F.dt = ma.dv d) F.dt = mv.dv
Answer: b) F.dt = m.dv
Explanation: According to Newton’s second law, Momentum P = mv
