Q 13. Different points in the earth are at slightly different distances from the sun and hence experience different forces due to gravitation. For a rigid body, we know that if various forces act at various points in it, the resultant motion is as if a net force acts on the CM (centre of mass) causing translation and a net torque at the CM causing rotation around an axis through the CM. For the earth-sun system (approximating the earth as a uniform density sphere).

The torque is zero.

The torque cause the earth to spin.

The rigid body result is not applicable since the earth is not even approximately a rigid body.

The torque causes the earth to move around the sun.

Q 14. Both the earth and the moon are subject to the gravita- tional force of the sun. As observed from the sun, the orbit of the moon

will be elliptical.

will not be strictly elliptical because the total gravitational force on it is not central.

is not elliptical but will necessarily be a closed curve.

deviates considerably from being elliptical due to influence of planets other than the earth.

Q 15. Choose the wrong option.

Inertial mass is a measure of difficulty of accel- erating a body by an external force whereas the gravitational mass is relevant in determining the gravitational force on it by an external mass.

That the gravitational mass and inertial mass are equal is an experimental result.

That the acceleration due to gravity on the carth is the same for all bodies is due to the equality of gravitational mass and inertial mass.

Gravitational mass of a particle like proton can depend on the presence of neighbouring heavy objects but the inertial mass cannot.
