    Input and output voltages of a transformer?

    Heres how u do the problem.... First let me tell u the basics of a transformer. A transformer is a mutual inductance based device that transfers power from one part to the other. It does so by virtue of stepping up the voltage or the current. i.e VI = constant. So if the input voltage...

    Electron movement between atoms

    Jumping... (or discrete Energy levels) This phenomenon is explained by the laws of Quantum Physics which state that any particle can only take discrete values of energies. i.e It can only take certain values of energies.For example if an electron can take the energy values 10 ev, 40 ev and 160...

    A wave in two different strings

    or you can look at the problem like this... Total Energy is conserved in both the regions of the rope. Thus, consider the wave from the lighter density rope as the incident wave. When this incident wave meets the higher density rope, a part of it gets reflected and a part of it gets...

    Uniform circular motion question

    .... As u said you must substitute 1/4\Pi\epsilon_{0} = 8.99 * 10^9 in the numerator. i.e. 8.99*10^9 * (e^{2})/r = 1/2 * mv^2 Sridhar

    Uniform circular motion question

    ... What you should do is equate the electric potential energy to the kinetic energy of the electron...Thats all that you need to do and lo behold you have the answer. i.e. (e^2)/(4\Pi \epsilon_{0}r) = 1/2*(mv^2 ) From the above equation you can find the velocity... Sridhar

    Big bang worries

    Calculate the magnitude of this torque

    Heres how u do it... Since the mass of the bridge is concentrated at its centre, you can assume this to be a problem where the bridge is a single mass (do not consider length initially) connected to a rope making an angle of 30 degrees to the horizantal with a mass of 110 kg connected to the...

    Big bang worries

    Classical Electrostatics problem

    .. when a charge is kept at some distance from the sphere, the electric field would act on the sphere. This electric field is going to induce charges of opposite polarity on the charge. Now any spherical charge distribution will act like a point charge. Thus, equate the electric field due to a...

    Question about infinity

    There is a limit to how much we can measure. In fixing this limit we also fix our approximations. When there are infinites of nine we say that it is very close to one and hence approximate it to 1. We could approximate 0.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999... to 0.9, but...

    Speed of Light?

    The speed of light is always a constant irrespective of the frame of reference or medium. The apparent slowing down of light due to refraction is due to the fact that the atoms inside the medium absorb the light and then emit the light after some time delay. This time delay in the transmission...
