I have basic doubt about light propagation .So I'm hoping to get some help here.
The problem is ...Let us assume two frames, 'MOVING FRAME'[one moving with a certain velocity(constant)] and 'REST FRAME'[one wrt to which the first frame is moving]. If now moving frame emits a...
I have a problem with this image from the Michelson Morley experiment in which one tries to calculate the time taken by the light beam to traverse the arm of interferometer perpendicular to the velocity of the frame in 'ether'.
So the problem is, Are laws of reflection being...
I'm here just to know an answer to a question that is bothering me for a while now. We know that motion of a body under the influence of central force with given center [say A] is planar . I was thinking whether this is possible even when body is allowed to move under the influence...
Im familiar with the concept that electric field has associated energy with it
Now if in space an electron apppeared at some instant t=0 then electric field will not be established instantaneously but will propagate at speed of light through space
As electric field is bieng...
I have read in textbook that if a photon were to collide with a free electron it's an impossible situation for photon to get completely absorbed by an electron .
The situation seems possible by conservation of energy but im not able to understand the true reason behind the statement .is there...
I have read that color of light percieved by us depend on its wavelength since light is wave and also electron has wave like character that means electron has wavelength .Does that mean that electron has a color associated with it . I think its not but why .also I'm not able to understand...
Let's suppose we have a cuboidal tank filled with liquid of density rho,such that
Critical angle of medium is (Ic) now it's
Clear that light rays from the medium that strike at proper critical angle will
Graze along the surface
Now if someone would be along the path of the rays receiving...
I WAS THINKING ABOUT A REGION OF
SPACE WITH ELECTRIC FIELD ALONG
POSITIVE X DIRECTION AND Varying
WITH SPACE COORDINATE(x)
NOW IF ONE IMAGINES A CUBE IN SPACE
SUCH THAT FIELD CROSSES ITS TWO FACES
AT RIGHT ANGLES ,A SIMPLE Application of...
