    Mass Defect

    Also, do you think the mass defect should be left as a negative answer?

    Mass Defect

    The answers should be left to 3 significant figures. Thats why I can't seem to point out where I went wrong. My lecture notes did not mention anything about it.

    Energy efficiency, Transformer?

    Homework Statement A power plant produces energy at a voltage of Vi = 12693 V. Before being sent along long distance power lines this electricity is sent through a transformer with 166 turns in the primary coil and 6917 turns in the secondary coil. The voltage of the electricity sent through...

    Relationship between magnetic field strength and voltage

    So I'm really confused with the relationship between magnetic field strength and voltage. Say you have a battery (with a DC voltage) with 4 coils, when voltage increases, does magnetic field strength increase? Is there any law (i.e. Faraday's law) that supports this?

    Friction and mass of object

    Well I'm doing an experiment at home. So the point of this experiment is to use different masses of objects and record the angle of the slope at which the object first starts to slide down. So I've been increasing my object mass but my angles are decreasing.

    Friction and mass of object

    Hi guys. I was just wondering if someone could enlighten me on the relationship between friction and mass of object. For instance, if i have an object of mass 100g going down a slope… what happens if i increase the mass of object to 200g? will the angle of the slope increase or decrease for...
