In physics, a number of noted theories of the motion of objects have developed. Among the best known are:
Classical mechanics
Newton's laws of motion
Euler's laws of motion
Cauchy's equations of motion
Kepler's laws of planetary motion
General relativity
Special relativity
Quantum mechanics
"Reversibility means that we never lose information, that at a fundamental level we can always retrodict the past as well as predict the future in the laws of physics".
Susskind in his Theoretical minimum Lecture 2 describes about the laws which are true and which are not. He tells the law of...
Hello to everyone :smile:
I'd like to study this problem.
You have a 2D guide, described by an equation y = y (x) in a reference interval x ∈ I = [a, b], placed in a cartesian vertical plane Oxy.
The guide is frictionless and the only force that is acting is the gravity force.
On this track, a...
Quantum mechanics has argued for years that space is not a vacuum.
Arguments attempting to brush aside quantum mechanics vacuum theory claiming, it's 'just a quantum mathematical theory' can now put to rest.
In this article, laboratory experimentation demonstrates that the Casimir Effect can...
I used work energy theorem between initial top point and point x along the incline(downwards) i got the expression of v then diffrentiated it to get a maxima but it gives me a wrong ans which is 10/6 but the actual ans is 10/3 please tell me what i did wrong
I tried making the fbd of both blocks the block on the incline will have mgsin30 friction force, tension and centrepetal force's cos component similarly second block will have mg tension and friction where normal will be centrepetal force after solving my ans is not matching
At the moment of throwing the ball the ball will have a vertical vel of 4 and horizontal of 3 wrt to elevator so as seen from inside the elevator the ball will behave like a projectile where g(eff) = 8 and with time period 1 sec hence range will be the displacement which should be 3 m but ans...

In the second question at 5:32,why doesn't the block have a spring force.In FBD of 2nd block it should have been mg-(T+kx)=ma right?
Imagine, There's a ball in deep space traveling with a constant velocity of 25m/s and is having mass 25kg.
Now as I said, ball is traveling with a constant velocity that simply means acceleration=0 and now if we calculate the force with F=ma we will end up with 0. But if that ball collide with a...

Suppose there is a beaker filled with water placed on a weighing machine. Suppose the reading is x kg. Now, if i immerse a solid block inside the beaker without touching the walls or the bottom of the beaker, will the reading given by the weighing machine increase or not?
Suppose there is a pulley(of negligible mass) and a string(of negligible mass) passes through the groove and two equal masses are attached to each end of the string. Now, if the whole arrangement is attached on a spring balance what will be the reading of the spring balance. Will it be zero?
