Challenge problems

A coaxial cable has an inner conductor of radius a, and outer thin cylindrical shell of radius b. A current I flows in the inner conductor and returns in the outer conductor. The self-inductance of the structure will depend on how the current in the inner cylinder tends to be distributed. Investigate the following two extreme cases. (a) Let current in the inner conductor be distributed only on the surface and find the self-inductance. (b) Let current in the inner cylinder be distributed uniformly over its cross-section and find the self-inductance. Compare with your results in (a).

In a damped oscillating circuit the energy is dissipated in the resistor. The Q -factor is a measure of the persistence of the oscillator against the dissipative loss. (a) Prove that for a lightly damped circuit the energy, U , in the circuit decreases according to the following equation.

d U d t = −2 β U , where β = R 2 L .

(b) Using the definition of the Q -factor as energy divided by the loss over the next cycle, prove that Q -factor of a lightly damped oscillator as defined in this problem is

Q U begin Δ U one cycle = 1 R L C .

( Hint: For (b), to obtain Q , divide E at the beginning of one cycle by the change Δ E over the next cycle.)

A rectangular copper ring, of mass 100 g and resistance 0.2 Ω , is in a region of uniform magnetic field that is perpendicular to the area enclosed by the ring and horizontal to Earth’s surface. The ring is let go from rest when it is at the edge of the nonzero magnetic field region (see below). (a) Find its speed when the ring just exits the region of uniform magnetic field. (b) If it was let go at t = 0 , what is the time when it exits the region of magnetic field for the following values: a = 25 cm , b = 50 cm , B = 3 T , and g = 9.8 m/s 2 ? Assume the magnetic field of the induced current is negligible compared to 3 T.

Figure a shows a box with crosses in it. It is labeled t=0. An area within it is demarcated with breadth equal to a and length equal to b. Figure b shows the same box with crosses in it. It is labeled, “when ring exits”. The demarcated are from figure a is now below the box. There are two downward arrows labeled g and v.

the study of heat an other form of energy.
heat is internal kinetic energy of a body but it doesnt mean heat is energy contained in a body because heat means transfer of energy due to difference in temperature...and in thermo-dynamics we study cause, effect, application, laws, hypothesis and so on about above mentioned phenomenon in detail.
It is abranch of physical chemistry which deals with the interconversion of all form of energy

what is flux
Bundi Reply
Total number of field lines crossing the surface area
Basically flux in general is amount of anything...In Electricity and Magnetism it is the total no..of electric field lines or Magnetic field lines passing normally through the suface
what is temperature change
a bottle of soft drink was removed from refrigerator and after some time, it was observed that its temperature has increased by 15 degree Celsius, what is the temperature change in degree Fahrenheit and degree Celsius
process whereby the degree of hotness of a body (or medium) changes
where The letter "Q" is the heat transferred in an exchange in calories, "m" is the mass of the substance being heated in grams, "c" is its specific heat capacity and the static value, and "ΔT" is its change in temperature in degrees Celsius to reflect the change in temperature.
what was the temperature of the soft drink when it was removed ?
15 degree Celsius
15 degree
ok I think is just conversion
15 degree Celsius to Fahrenheit
0 degree Celsius = 32 Fahrenheit
15 degree Celsius = (15×1.8)+32 =59 Fahrenheit
I dont understand
the question said you should convert 15 degree Celsius to Fahrenheit
To convert temperatures in degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply by 1.8 (or 9/5) and add 32.
what is d final ans for Fahrenheit and Celsius
it said what is temperature change in Fahrenheit and Celsius
the 15 is already in Celsius
So the final answer for Fahrenheit is 59
