Q.20    Two physicists, both of mass 50 kg, climb up identical ropes suspended from the ceiling of a gymnasium. The ropes  are 15 m long. Physicist 1 reaches the top twice as quickly as Physicist 2 does.  After reaching at top, they argue about who did more work agaists gravity:


            Physicist 1:

            “ I did more work fighting gravity, because I was overcoming gravity more quickly. Your climb was lazier, and therefore, you did less work.”


            Physicist 2:

            “ No way. I did more work fighting gravity, because I spent more time climbing the rope.  Since we both ended up at the same height, but I spent more time getting there, I had to work harder .”


i) Which physicist, if either, did more work against gravity while climbing from floor to ceiling ?                        a)Physicist 1 did more work                           b)Physicist 2 did more work                                                                             c)Both did the same work                              d) Neither physicist did any work

iii) Physicist 1 started falling from ceiling  onto a heavily-padded cushion, safely coming to rest. Which of the following best expresses the net energy transfer during this process?                                                                                a)Chemical to kinetic to heat                          b)Potential to chemical to heat                                                                    c)Potential to kinetic to heat                           d)Kinetic to potential to chemical
