A lift ascends from rest with uniform acceleration of 4m/s^2, then it moves with uniform velocity and finally comes to rest with uniform retardation of 4m/s^2. If the total distance covered during ascending is 28m and total time taken for ascending is 8s respectively. Find the time for which the lift moves with uniform velocity .Also find its uniform Velocity.

**Answer Strategies and trick by Manish sir**(it will help you to solve it by yourself)

field intensity at distance x from m = Gm/x^{2} - G4m/(r-x)^{2}

compare it to 0 and find x

then calculate gravitational potential at the point

**During motion of a planet from perihelion to aphelion the work done by gravitational force of sun on it is positive or negative.**

**Asked By: SWATI KAPOOR**5 year ago

**submit your answer**

**Answer Strategies and trick by Manish sir**(it will help you to solve it by yourself)

change in K E = work done by all the forces

and **from perihelion to aphelion velocity decreases**

**so work done will be negative**

from ground to that point

1/2 m[√(2gR)/2]^{2 } + [-GMm/R] = 0 + [-GMm/(R+h)]

solve for h
