Read each statement below carefully and state with reasons and examples, if it is true or false ;
A particle in one-dimensional motion
(a) with zero speed at an instant may have non-zero acceleration at that instant
(b) with zero speed may have non-zero velocity,
(c) with constant speed must have zero acceleration,
(d) with positive value of acceleration must be speeding up.
Explanation: When an object is vertically thrown upwards, at maximum height its velocity becomes zero. However, its acceleration remains constant (acceleration due to gravity).
Explanation: Speed and velocity have same magnitude for a body. So, If a body is having zero speed it should have zero velocity.
Explanation: Acceleration is defined as change in velocity with respect to time. Thus, If change in velocity is zero acceleration is also zero.
Explanation: When a body is vertically thrown upwards. Even though positive acceleration the body have it will slowly speeding down due acceleration due to gravity.
Explanation: When a body is freely falling from a height. Acceleration due to gravity speedup the body.

A ball is bouncing elastically with a speed 1 m/s between walls of a railway compartment of size 10 m in a direction perpendicular to walls. The train is moving at a constant velocity of 10 m/s parallel to the direction of motion of the ball. As seen from the ground,Physics - Exemplar
A bird is tossing (flying to and fro) between two cars moving towards each other on a straight road. One car has a speed of 18 m/h while the other has the speed of 27km/h. The bird starts moving from first car towards the other and is moving with the speed of 36km/h and when the two cars were separated by 36 km. What is the total distance covered by the bird? What is the total displacement of the bird?Physics - Exemplar
