    X-ray production and ionization energy

    I am confused with the Kvp and Kep. I know that In the x-ray tube, after heating the filament and the electron cloud if formed, then the step-up transformer is going to increase the voltage and reduce the current to produce a high potential difference to that electrons will accelerate from the...

    Rotational moment of inertia for 3 balls on a pipe

    Homework Statement Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution i just dont know from where to take the R which is colored with brown, in the 2(MR^2), what is the R here exactly, because i took the radius of the sphere , but i get different answer althought it's near.

    Will it rotate?

    Homework Statement Homework Equations torque= F*r*sintheta total force on y= 0 The Attempt at a Solution how come it will rotate in this situation?? espicially that he is ignoring the weight force of the rod! i knew that i ignored the mass of the rod when he said total force on y= F -F. if...

    Rotational inertia hoop around a central axis

    Homework Statement Homework Equations I= mr^2 for a hoop around a central axis I= 1/12 (m)(l)^2 for thin rod about axis through center perpendicular to lenght The Attempt at a Solution I am totally confused. i said first that the three masses each will make a hoop shape so i found I=mr^2...

    B When a particle is rotating about an axis "r" away, is its linear velocity constant?

    If talking about a particle rotating around an axis away from it by r. if the particle is moving with constant angular velocity ω. is the linear velocity constant or no? Now what I know is that since we have Vt= ωr, so r doesn't change, as well as ω, so Vt is said to be constant. but I think...

    Static equilibrium: Find the tension in a support cable

    Homework Statement Homework Equations Σtorque = 0 Σfx=0 Σfy=0 torque= F r sinθ (θ is the angle between the r and the F) The Attempt at a Solution OKay, now i know how to solve this, but it's like i asked myself, how to know if this is a question that i am supposed to use Σfx=0 and Σfy=0...

    B Tension of a massive rope

    [moderator: text edited to change the phrasing.] There is a question that that says: a 50 kg weight is suspended from the bottom part from a rope. If the rope has a weight of 100N. Then what is the tension at each end of the rope( the top part connected to the ceiling and the bottom part to...

    B Kinetic friction direction on two stacked blocks

    If i have two blocks on top of each other and there is friction between the two blocks and it's a kinetic friction ( given μk). if i was given the force applied on the lower block to the right direction for example. ignoring the friction between the lower block and the ground, i tried to draw...
