What is heat?

1)The mean energy transferred between the two system as a result of pure thermal interaction is called Heat.It is the transfer of energy from the higher temperature object to a lower temperature object.

2) The total amount of energy transferred as heat is conventionally written as Q for algebraic purposes. Heat released by a system into its surroundings is by convention a negative quantity (Q < 0); when a system absorbs heat from its surroundings, it is positive (Q > 0).

3) Heat is similar to work as both represent ways of transferring the energy.

Uses of Capacitor

1) The main purpose of the capacitor is to store charge . If an instantanous strong current is to be flown in a circuit,the best way would be to connect the terminals of the circuit to a charge capacitor

2 A capacitor can store electric energy when disconnected from its charging circuit, so it can be used like a temporary battery. Capacitors are commonly used in electronic devices to maintain power supply while batteries are being changed. (This prevents loss of information in volatile memory.)

How to find workdone by several forces acting on a object

This can be done in these simple steps

1) First draw a free body diagram of the body showing all the forces on it.

2) Carefully choose a X-Y coordinate system so that direction of the motion or direction of force lies in X or Y direction. This will simplfy the Problem

3) Applying Newton’s law find out any unknown forces

H.C Verma Concepts of physics OR NCERT physics books

Many times i have had users ask me a question which book to opt between H.C Verma Concepts of physics and NCERT physics books. My answer is you can keep both the books set for your preparation as NCERT is nice book to learn a good concepts and is according to the exam level of class 11 and class 12.

Physics books for CSIR-NET/JRF and GATE

This is the list of few books recommended for those preparing for net/jrf in physics . It is hard for a person to collect these many books so i would advise you to go through these books while doing your masters in physics and make yourself appropriate notes for further reference and study.
