Light rays Waves or particles

When we think of light a question comes to our mind whether it light is a wave or a particle. This discussion is very interesting and has got a long history. Newton the great physicist tried to understand travel of light in straight line assuming that a luminous body emits very minute and weightless particles called corpuscles travelling through empty space in straight line in all directions with the speed of light and carry kinetic energy with them.

Meter Bridge Experiment using Wheatstone Bridge Principle

What is Wheat Stone Bridge? A Wheatstone bridge is an electrical circuit used to measure an unknown electrical resistance by balancing two legs of a bridge circuit, one leg of which includes the unknown component. it was invented by Samuel Hunter Christie in 1833 and improved and popularized by Sir Charles Wheatstone in 1843.Although today …

Newton’s Third Law of motion (action-reaction and examples)

This article is about in-depth explanation of newton’s third law of motion. Here in this article I presume that you have a introduction of Newtons first law of motion and Newton’s second law of motion. Now Newtons first law and second law of motion deals with the effect of forces when they acts on a body. First law is about the change in the velocity of the body on the application of unbalanced forces and second law is gives the exact amount of the force needed to produce a given acceleration.

Circular Motion Physics : Detailed explanation

Circular motion is a very important concept in physics. Here in this page I would like to go through the concept of circular motion. You encounter circular motion in your day to day life. Many rides in amusement parks undergoes circular motion. Curves on highway are part of a circle and cars making a tun undergoes circular motion. Merry-go-Rounds in playgrounds offer further examples of uniform circular motion. Now let us learn more about circular motion.

How to solve electric force and field problems

This post is all about how you can easily solve electric force and electric field problems. At a glance problems of physics can seem to be scary and overwhelming for some students but do not worry all you need to do is your willingness to solve problem. So first of all you need to read your problem carefully and then start using following protocol to solve your problems. The procedure I am going to write is for calculating electric forces but you can use the same procedure to calculate an electric field by simply replacing the charge of interest, q, with a convenient test charge and dividing by the test charge at the end. So, to calculate the force,

Top Conceptual Questions for Rotational Mechanics

1) If the total external force acting on a rigid body is zero, then
(a) only linear momentum remains constant
(b) only angular momentum remains constant
(c) both linear momentum and angular momentum remains constant
(d) neither linear momentum nor angular momentum remain constant

2) A ball of mass M is tied to a string of length L is whirled round in a horizontal plane in a circle of radius R. The speed of the stone is increased beyond the maximum permissible value and the string breaks suddenly; then
(a) the stone will jerk radially outwards
