A top pan balance measures the force.So if I jump(or fall from a height) on it,Why does it show a greater value?(Acceleration and mass does not change,so the force is same)??
adjacent said:Oh,Momentum.Maybe I'll learn it later. :)
jfizzix said:A lot of the time the net force on an object is taught as equal to its mass times the derivative of its velocity instead of derivative of mass times velocity, especially at freshman level physics.
Momentum is more than just total of M*V. It is, "The thing which is conserved because of Newton's third law". Light has momentum, but we wouldn't describe its momentum as M times V.
quawa99 said:Yeah momentum is M*V/√(1-V^2/c^2) .So you expect a freshman level physics student to understand that and about how photon has momentum but can't expect him to know that force is the rate of change of momentum.ok :uhh:
A top pan balance is a type of weighing scale that has a flat, circular pan on top where objects are placed to be weighed. It is commonly used in laboratory settings to measure the mass of various substances.
Jumping on a top pan balance is not recommended because it can damage the delicate internal components of the balance, affecting its accuracy and potentially causing it to malfunction. Additionally, it can also be dangerous for the person jumping and others nearby.
Yes, jumping on a top pan balance can affect its calibration. The force from jumping can cause the balance to become misaligned, resulting in inaccurate measurements. It is important to handle a top pan balance with care to maintain its calibration.
Jumping on a top pan balance can cause physical harm to the person jumping and others nearby. It can also damage the balance itself, affecting its accuracy and potentially causing it to break.
Yes, there are alternative ways to check the accuracy of a top pan balance. These include using calibrated weights, performing regular calibrations, and ensuring the balance is placed on a level surface. Jumping on the balance is not a recommended method and can cause harm to both the balance and the person jumping.
