Question 60

Interference of Light-Young's Experiment

Appeared in Year: 1999

Describe in Detail

Essay▾

What are the essential conditions for observing the interference of light? Two coherent sources with intensity ratio interfere. Find (20 Marks)

Explanation

It is not always necessary that two superimposing light waves always interfere and result in the redistribution of energy (fringes) . Only where these superimposing waves satisfy certain conditions the fringe pattern is observed on screen. These conditions are as follows:

  1. The phase difference between the two waves should not change with time. If the…

Question 62

Euler's Equation of Motion of a Rigid Body
Edit

Appeared in Year: 2015

Describe in Detail

Essay▾

Define coefficient of viscosity and kinematic viscosity of a fade. What are poise and stokes? (10 Marks)

Explanation

  • If F is the external force applied to plate P to maintain a laminar streamline flow of the liquid and v, the velocity of the uppermost layer, distant z from the lowermost or stationary layer, we have tangential or shearing stress applied = where A is the surface area of the layer.
  • Newton found that the shear strain is a function of the shearing st…

Appeared in Year: 1999

Describe in Detail

Essay▾

What is Compton Effect and Compton wave length? Determine Compton shift. Show that maximum Compton shift is twice the Compton wave length. (40 Marks)

Explanation

  • The Compton Effect experiment gives direct evidence that electromagnetic radiations consist of photons, which colliding with electrons, for example, like one billiard ball colliding with other billiard ball. In figure 1, we show, schematically, the experimental arrangement of Compton Effect. An X-ray bean of known single wavelength from source S fa…

Question 65

Conservation of Linear and Angular Momentum
Edit

Appeared in Year: 2015

Describe in Detail

Essay▾

Write down precisely the conservation theorems for energy, linear momentum and angular momentum of a particle with their mathematical forms. (15 Marks)

Explanation

  • Conservation of linear momentum: - It follows from Newton՚s second law of motion in the from
  • That is, if the total force F is zero then and the linear momentum is conserved. Obviously the conservation law is the result of the first integral of equation of motion. Conservation laws are thus also called the first integrals of equations of motion.
  • Con…
