    Definite Integration proof

    Hey guys! I'm looking for a rigorous proof which shows that the definite integral does indeed give us the area under a curve or which proves how is a definite integral a summation process. I already know that the any given function is the derivative of the function of its area but most of the...

    Hybridization of compounds

    I read somewhere on net that hybridization, which is a good model for most of the compounds, is not entirely correct i.e. some molecules show considerable deviation in there molecular geometry from the predictions of the hybrid model and we only use it because it is easier way to understand the...

    Momentum question.

    Oh my mistake. It is v=-eu. Original post edited. I asked this question because nowadays we are doing oblique collisions between a wall and a ball in mathematics. This is an example question(it appeared in exams a few years ago). Velocity of the ball=u angle which the ball makes with the...

    Momentum question.

    Guys I'm having a little problem in undersatnding a few things: We have a wall and a ball of mass 'm'. The ball is thrown towards the wall with speed u and rebounds with speed 'v'. The coefficient of restitution is, e is 1/3. The question is to find the value of 'v'. Thats how I think it should...

    A question about dy/dx

    I'm just a little confused about dy/dx. I read that its one entity not a fraction. Can someone please clarify why is this not a fraction? According to what I know (delta y)/(delta x) becomes equal to dy/dx as (delta x) appraches zero. If delta x apparaches to zero then delta y should alway have...

    Two Questions

    A system is developed as shown in the diagram attached. The ball is initially given a push so that it falls onto a turbine connected to generator which produces electricity. After rotating the turbine the ball fall down a narrow tube with a valve into the water again the ball rises again and is...

    Nuclear waste.

    I was just reading about transmutation. From what I have read, it seems like a very good way to deal with the long-lived radioactive waste. I've also read that during this process energy is released which can be used to produce electricity. If that's true why not US or other countries...

    Flemings Left Hand Rule

    Well I think when motion is produced by a current in a conduct, we use Flemings Left Hand rule to predict the direction of motion. Whereas, when motion is producing current we use FLEMINGS RIGHT HAND RULE. It’s same as Flemings Left Hand rule but this time you do it with your right hand to...

    E-4 Mensuration Question

    I worked on it and found out that maximum no. of spheres in only possible if they are placed directly on to each other. For this particular problem if the spheres are placed as you have said than there are two possibilities. Either the no. of spheres that can be packed is (81+100+81+100+81)=443...

    E-4 Mensuration Question

    Frequency of collisions of the gas

    They are directly proportional. I know that the pressure will increase but since the piston is friction less it will move outwards until the pressure inside the syringe is same as it is outside the syringe. But that's not my question.

    Frequency of collisions of the gas

    Some gas is put into a gas syringe with a frictionless piston which does not allow the escape of any gas. The gas is initially at 20C and is then heated to 100C. The piston is allowed to move. At 100C a time will come when the piston will stop moving outwards and become stationary(this will...
