Basic Procedure
The experiment basically involves finding the null point on the Carey Foster's bridge with the PRT as the unknown resistance and using a Resistance box as the variable resistance.
In the above diagram, P and Q are 2 fixed resistors of equal resistances.
For obtaining the first...
When monochromatic light is incident on a plano convex lens(as shown in the picture), these dark rings are produced which are observed with the help of a travelling microscope.
The procedure requires us to measure the diameter of each ring (We need to measure the diameter of at least 10...
So I have taken up this course on Electricity and Magnetism and we need to prepare a project as in not very broad as such but for example, attempting to solve a problem or something that is related to the subject but off the course. I'd like to involve computation too in some form or the other...
Homework Statement
Why working formula for transverse and longitudinal arrangement in melde experiment different in Melde's experiment ?
Homework Equations
None. The corresponding equations are all derived from the same fact.
The Attempt at a Solution
So, I have understood that the tuning...
So I'm an undergrad student from India pursuing physics, I'm currently in my first year and I'm really confused as to what I should do. I mean, I like physics, especially the computational aspect of it, but I don't know if I'll continue physics after three years. Summer's gonna start soon and I...
[Note from mentor: this lacks the homework template because it was originally posted in a non-homework forum.]
I know this seems like a very dumb question but every other error I think of has been covered in precautions and the only errors I can think of are dumb ones. Help ! I had to plot the...
So I've taken this Linear Algebra class as an elective. So there's stuff that is so obvious and logically/analytically easy to prove but I honestly don't understand how to prove them using the standard way. So what should I do about this ?
And I really like linear algebra so I don't want to mess...
Homework Statement
In the Fizeau's Experiment to determine the speed of light, let the gear have N teeth, the frequency of the rotating gear being f, the distance travelled by the light beam/ray L (distance b/w the gear and the mirror) and let there be n eclipses(blocking of the light beam)...
Homework Statement
A “superball” of mass m bounces back and forth with speed v between two parallel walls, as shown. The walls are initially separated by distance l. Gravity is neglected and the collisions are perfectly elastic.
If one surface is slowly moved toward the other with speed V...
So I tried solving the differential equation for a spring - mass system using Euler's Algorithm in Python. The equation being
d2x/dt2= -4π2x
(The equation was obtained by Dimensional Analysis)
here x and t are both dimensionless equivalents of position...
For example, in linear differential equations, there might be these questions where we'd directly use e∫pdx as the integrating factor and then substitute it in this really cliche formula but I never really understood where it came from. Help ?
