(b)

TE at initial point

After collision,remaining energy

Hence,

(since after collision,it rebounds to same height )

m/s

The ball would rise to the same height after collision if the initial velocity was directed upwards instead of downwards. Since while returning to the same point, the body would possess the same velocity in the downwarddirection, hence  =10 m

 A man stands at one end of the open truck which can run on frictionless horizontal rails. Initially, the man and the truck are at rest. Man now walks to the other end and stops. Then which of the following is true? a) The truck moves opposite to direction of motion of the man even after the man ceases to walk b) The centre of mass of the man and the truck remains at the same point throughout the man’s walk c) The kinetic energy of the man and the truck are exactly equal throughout the man’s walk d) The truck does not move at all during the man’s walk
