    Why Groundwire at the Centre of Electricity pylon?

    We have noticed in various electricity pylons/towers that groundwire or shieldwire is always placed at the top and between the two conductors ? why is that so? If you look at the 220kV structures or 500kV structures of pylons, you will notice the groundwire is placed at the middle of...

    The value of spring constant in Mass spring system in an elevator

    A mass spring system is in elevator which moves upward with an acceleration "a" . What will be effect on the measured value of spring constant compared to its value when elevator is at rest. Since K= F/x At rest F=mg But with acceleration F=m(g+a) So I think the value is...

    Bernoulli principle or due to Viscosity?

    But if we apply bernoulli's principle here: I-e " where the pressure is high in a fluid there is low velocity and where the pressure is low in a fluid motion , velocity will be higher.. We know that at sides there is more pressure due to Adhesion and Cohesion forces hence speed is low...

    Bernoulli principle or due to Viscosity?

    Why the speed of water in the middle of the smooth flowing stream is high than its speed on the sides? Is it due to Adhesion or cohesion forces or viscosity or Bernoulli principle holds here? Kindly tell me exact reason .

    Law of conservation of momentum problem?

    P = momentum, m = mass and v= velocity, and P=m*v So before the collision we have a total momentum of (65*4.9) + (88*1.2) = 424.1Kg/ms^-1 After the collision, the momentum must be 424.1. This is equal to the combined mass of the man and the boat (65+88=153kg) multiplied by the final velocity...

    Newton's Third law of motion problem.

    Homework Statement An object is free to move on a table, ex- cept that there is a constant friction force f that opposes the motion of the object when it moves. If a force of 10 N pulls the object across the table, the acceleration is 2 m/s2. If a force of 20 N pulls the object across the...
