Physics

Asked by OPHER,

How do physics and technology are connected with each other?

Physics has vast applications and one of them is in the field of technology. An example would be the technologies such as nuclear reactors which can be utilised to generate huge amounts of energy are based on the principles of nuclear physics. If you wanna explore this more, here is a quick read which you might find interesting: https://www.europhysicsnews.org/articles/epn/pdf/2018/05/epn2018495p... more

Asked by Katie

How is the conservation of energy apply to a pendulum swinging

In the rest position (at equilibrium) before the pendulum is swinging its KE = 0 and the GPE = 0. As the pendulum moves upwards it gains both KE and GPE and at its max height GPE = maximum, but there is a small moment when at the max height the pendulum does not move, so even though as the pendulum climbed upwards it gained KE, right at the top where it halts for just a split second, whilst GPE... more

Asked by Mamata

Different between potential difference and current

Current: The rate of flow of charges Potential difference: Work done to move a unit charge between two points in an electrical circuit. in very very very simple terms: Current: how quickly the charges (electrons) are moving in a circuit Potential difference: how much energy is needed to move these charges between 2 points in a circuit. Any more questions? Feel free to message me :)

Asked by Kas

Good day . I’ve been asked to calculate theoretical deflection My load = 0.981 N , length =560mm , youngs modulus = 207GN/m^2 , breath = 19.36, depth=3.07. Someone please assist me . My answer was incorrect.

deflection can be calculated by taking the double integral of the Bending Moment Equation, M(x) divided by EI (Young's Modulus x Moment of Inertia).

Asked by Lottie

A space shuttle has an acceleration of 29 m/s2 . The initial velocity is 2 m/s. Calculate the velocity of the shuttle after 8 seconds.

Given Data: Acceleration = a = 29 m/(s)^2 Initial Velocity = Vi = 2 m/s Time = t = 8 sec Final Velocity = Vf = ? Solution: According to Newton’s First Law of Motion, Vf = Vi+at -------eq(1) Put the values from given data in eq(1), we get, Vf = 2+(29)(8) = 234 m/s

Asked by Eva

A Diesel engine is supplied with 6000j of chemical energy and usefully transfers 2100j what is the efficiency

efficiency = useful power out/total power in 2100/6000=0.35 could also be written as a percentage so 0.35=35%
