## Since, the body is at rest at x = 0 and x = 1. Hence,

## a x and vy becomes zero (because cos /2 = 0)

only vx and a y are left.
or we can say that velocity is along negative x-axis
and acceleraion along y-axis.
Hence, a t = /2p velocity and acceleration of the
particle are normal to each other. So, option (b) is also
correct.

## If height and base is fixed, area is also fixed

In case 2 : Acceleration = Retardation = 4 m/s 2
In case 1 : Acceleration > 4 m/s 2 while
Retardation < 4 m/s 2

Statement-II, is formula of relative velocity. But it does
not explain statement-I correctly. The correct
explanation of statement-I is due to visual perception
of motion. The object appears to be moving faster,
when its angular velocity is greater w.r.t. observer.

(b)

## Relative velocity of B with respect to A ( v BA ) should

r
be along OA for the ball to hit the trolly. Hence, v BA
will make an angle of 45 with positive x-axis.
