A truck is moving with a uniform velocity of 10 m/s.A leak occurs in the water tank of the truck at the rate of 2 kg/s.What is the speed of the truck after 50 seconds if the mass of the truck was 100 kg and mass of water in the tank initially was 100 kg?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you tell me what would be the mass of the truck after 5o seconds??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0100kgs.. all of sand will leak. right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, you are losing 2kg/s so in 50 seconds you will lose 2kg/sec * 50sec = 100kg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont no if it can be solved because there is two variable P(momentum) and v(velocity) in the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, since the problem gives the truck as moving with a uniform velocity, you know that it is not accelerating, meaning that it is not speeding up or slowing down. So after 50 seconds its momentum has changed but by definition its velocity has not.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the velocity is the same 10m/s but the momentum will be 1000 Ns

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is how I read the question, yes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but the asnwer given is 15m/s ..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@eSpex also the velcoty cannot be 10m/s. since no external force is acting on the system conservation of momentum has to stand. i think the question is wrongly drafted.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0NO.. THE QUESTION is right.. use conservation of momentum!! initial mass = 200kg and initial velocity = 10m/s hence initial momentum = 2000kgm/s final mass = 100kg and final velocity = v .. but final momentum = 2000kgm/s itself hence 100v = 2000 or v = 20m/s!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but when the water leaks the leaking water also has some momentum.. so in that case i really dunno how to solve the problem !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@mashy will the system accelerate?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it depends..i mean for example when the water leaks.. if i said that since the water has its inertia.. after it is seperated from the truck it continues to move along with the truck at same speed.. then the velocity wouldn't change!!.. and truck wouldn't accelerate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the word uniform velocity in the sumin the first line is before the leak occurs, right?
