What is Hemisphere: Definition and 159 Discussions
The Western Hemisphere is a geographical term for the half of Earth which lies west of the prime meridian (which crosses Greenwich, London, United Kingdom) and east of the antimeridian. The other half is called the Eastern Hemisphere. In geopolitical terms, the context in which the term is most often used, the Encyclopedia Britannica defines it as "North and South America and the surrounding waters. Longitudes 20°W and 160°E are often considered its boundaries." It may be used in a cultural or geopolitical sense as a synonym for the "New World".
Hello everyone,
I was trying to find volume of a sphere by doing some calculus, the area of a circle is ##{\pi}r^2##
So I thought I would calculate the volume of one hemisphere and then multiply by two, but I got a different result than the standard formula, the standard formula is ##\frac 4 3...
My thought: First of all, I find the upper hemisphere (with a total charge +Q): ##ρ(\vec r)=\frac {V} {Q}## where V is the volume of the upper hemisphere = ## \frac {2} {3} \pi R^3##. Secondly, find the lower hemisphere (with a total charge −Q): ##ρ(\vec r)=\frac {V} {Q}## where V is the volume...
Problem:
I have done part a) in spherical polar coordinates.
For part b) I thought it would be just:
$$\sigma = -\epsilon_0 \frac{\partial V}{\partial r}$$
But I got confused by "You may want to use different coordinate systems .." So I assume partial derivative w.r.t to r is the spherical...

I tried approaching this question like this:
F_N - mgcos(theta) = -mR(theta_dot)^2
and theta_dot = v/R since R is constant
F_N = m(gcos(theta) - (v - v_0)^2/R) (with v being final velocity and v_0 being the initial velocity from the impulse)
and then using energy conservation:
at t = 0: E =...

And the fact that if alpha is less than pi/2 we can say that we have two parts with angle alpha and one other part which has a normal field at the center.

Let the radius of the small sphere = r
3r = 1 → r = 1/3
##x=\sqrt{4r^2-r^2}=r\sqrt{3}##
Volume of pyramid:
$$=\frac{1}{3} \times (2r\sqrt{3})^2 \times r$$
$$=\frac{4}{27}$$
So m + n = 31, but the answer is 29.

a) From impulse-momentum theorem I have: ##J=mv## so ##v=\frac{J}{m}## and since the ball doesn't slip ##v=\Omega b## so ##\Omega=\frac{J}{mb}## and ##\dot{\theta}=\frac{v}{a+b}=\frac{\Omega b}{a+b}##.
b) I considered the angular impulse: ##-J(a+b)=I_0 \Omega_0 \Rightarrow...
I recently learned how to calculate the centroid of a semi-circular ring of radius ##r## using Pappus's centroid theorem as

Here is what the solution says:
As usual, quote the general potential formula: $$V(r,\theta)=\sum_{l=0}^{\infty}(A_lr^l+\frac{B_l}{r^{l+1}})P_l(cos\theta)$$
The potential outside the sphere is: $$V(r,{\theta})=\sum_{l=0}^{\infty}\frac{B_l}{r^{l+1}}P_l(cos\theta)$$, which makes sense to me...
My attempt is for part a
a. The electric field is into the base of the hemisphere and the area vector is coming out of the base

∅ = E*π*(0.0568^2)*cos(180) = -2.5*π*0.00322= - 0.0253N.m2/C;
b. For the part...
