Question:

Explain why some of the leaves may get detached from a tree if we vigorously shake its branch.

Answer:

The branches and leaves of the tree remain in rest. When the branch is shaken, that

branch becomes in motion and the leaves try to remain at rest due constant inertia.

The branches and leaves of the tree remain in rest. When the branch is shaken, that branch becomes in motion and the leaves try to remain at rest due constant inertia. Due to this a force is exerted on the leaves due to which some leaves break and fall down.
