### Eating food during Eclipse

I heard that we ought not eat anything in eclipse hours. Is there any scientific reason for that?

There is no scientific reason behind it. Earlier it was thought that more harmful rays are reaching earth from sun at the time of eclipse. But actually it is less at the time of eclipse as they are blocked by moon coming in its path.

### Force on a current carrying conductor

"if we are given an irregular shaped wire carrying current provided its cross sectional area is constant then we can find the net force on that conductor by joining the two ends of the conductor and thinking that joined part as a conductor and current should be flown in the same sequence then the force experienced by that conductor in magnetic field will give us the net force on that conductor. it is an easy method to find force on any shaped conductor........its my own theory with some examples too"

### WHAT IS PHYSICS?

The word physics is derived from the Greek words ‘physikos’ meaning “natural” and “physis” meaning nature. So we can say that physics is the study of the natural universe dealing with the fundamental constituents of the universe, the forces they exert on one another and the results produced by these forces.

The dictionary definition of Physics is “the study of matter, energy and the interaction between them”

In Physics we study a wide range of physical phenomena spanning all length scales: from subatomic particles from which all ordinary matter is made to the behavior of the material universe.

Physics doesn’t deal with just theoretical concepts. It is applied in every sphere of human activity.

Physics is basically a problem solving discipline. It solves not only the problems – numerical and conceptual in Physics but solves many problems of our life also. Just look around the many facilities we are enjoying- the television, DVD, speakers, computer… Most of them are because of Physics. Think of it.

PHYSICS is a dynamic and exciting field of science. It is not just a collection of independent ideas, but is really an interconnected whole.

Out of the other branches of science, Physics is the most basic science; not just a part of the Physical Sciences. An understanding of Science begins with an understanding of Physics.

“There is no field in Science that speaks more intimately than Physics, of man’s speculative inquiry into the natural world” – Frederick Seitz (Rockfeller University)

Physics can be enjoyable if it is understandable

Physics is a scientrific endeavour. It is a human activity in which new ideas are constantly being tried and in which scientific truth is never absolute.

Physics is the body of knowledge about nature that represents the collective efforts, findings, insights and wisdom of the human race. It is a human activity with the functions of discovering the orderliness of nature and finding the causes that govern this order.

Why students find Physics difficult?

Just have a look at the questions commonly discussed in Physics

How did the universe begin?

How will the universe change in coming days?

What keeps the sun shining?

……… And the list of questions is endless.

If these questions fascinate you, you will certainly like Physics.

Physics can be enjoyable if it is understandable

The main reason why students look upto physics with a sense of fear is mainly due to the fact that they fail to see the big picture. This in turn is due to the fact that they study Physics not as a whole but in small chunks and many cues to the puzzle are misplaced or forgotten. To appreciate the beauty a frequent look back is required to bring the pieces together.

The students in a hurry to score marks and to complete their task of preparing for exams, they fail to enjoy the beauty and flavor. To enjoy a gfame one must understand the rules governing the game.

Physics is all around us.

Physics deals with the laws governing the nature and to enjoy life and its various activities to its fullest we must know the laws and rules of nature as well as the nature of these laws.

And the interesting fact is that there are not too many laws.

Albert Einstein commented “The eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility”. This really explains the beauty of the subject, just by using a hand ful of laws we can explain the very many complex phenomena of the universe. Isn’t it fascinating? If your answer is yes, then you will really like physics, if not love it.

### Difference between Conservative force and Non Conservative force

The basic difference between conservative force and non conservative force is that

• The work done in a closed loop is zero for conservative forces. That is, the work done is independent of path. Gravitational force and electrostatic force are examples. In the case of a non conservative force, the work done in a closed loop is not zero. In other words, for a non conservative force, the work done depends on path followed. Frictional force is an example for non conservative force.

### Proportionality relation in electric power

Power is directly proportional as well as inversely proportional by two formulae.How does one justify?
P=V2/R as well as p=I2 R.

This means that for a given current, (i.e, when current is kept constant) Power is directly proportional to resistance.

eg, when a number of appliances are connected in series, the same current passes though all and the power dissipated  in each will be directly proportional to their resistances.

For a given constant voltage, the power is inversely proportional to resistance.

For eg; when a number of appliances are connected in parallel across the same voltage, then the power dissipated in each is inversely proportional to their resistances.

### The problem of a rock thrown vertically up

A rock is thrown vertically upward from the ground with an initial speed 15m/s.

a. how high does it go
b. how much time is required for the rock to reach its maximum height?
c. what is the rock’s height at t=2.00s?

(Posted by Merhawi)

(a)

u=15m/s

a=-10m/s2

v=0 m/s (at the max height)

S=?

v2-u2=2aS

S=v2-u2/2a

=225/20

=11.25 m

(b) From the above case

using v=u+at

t=v-u/a=1.5s

(c) Use S = ut + 1/2 at2

put t=2s, u = 15m/s, a=-10m/s2

S=30 – 20 = 10 m

(If you use g = 9.8 m/s2 The answers will be slightly different)

### Why protons attract inside a nucleus?

What is the reason for proton- proton attraction inside the nucleus according to nuclear physics? (Sanjeev Asked)

Answer: Inside the nucleus where the nucleons are very close to each other, the force which holds them together is the nuclear force, which is the strongest force in nature. The electrostatic force between protons is negligibly small compared to the nuclear force. But the nuclear force is of a very short range, 10^-15 m.

The nuclear force is charge independent, i.e; the nuclear force between proton and proton, proton and neutron as well as neutron and neutron are almost the same.

Yukawa’s meson theory suggest that the nuclear force is an exchange force. The nucleons are bound because of constant exchange of the mesons.

The nuclear force is only felt among hadrons. At small separations between nucleons (less than ~ 0.7 fm between their centers) the force becomes repulsive, which keeps the nucleons at a certain average separation, even if they are of different types. At distances larger than 0.7 femtometer (fm) the force becomes attractive between spin-aligned nucleons, becoming maximal at a center-center distance of about 0.9 fm. Beyond this distance the force drops essentially exponentially, until beyond about 2.0 fm separation, the force drops to negligibly small values.

At short distances (less than 1.7 fm or so), the nuclear force is stronger than the Coulomb force between protons; it thus overcomes the repulsion of protons inside the nucleus.

However, the Coulomb force between protons has a much larger range due to its decay as the inverse square of charge separation, and Coulomb repulsion thus becomes the only significant force between protons when their separation exceeds about 2 to 2.5 fm.

(There are many terms introduced in the explanation. You can discuss them as comments for obtaining further details, if required)

### Where is electricity stored after it is generated but before it is supplied? (Chat Transcript from FaceBook)

###### Where is electricity stored after it is generated but before it is supplied?
• Mahesh Sable Electrical power cannot be stored and,therefore,power plants must produce power as and when demanded.power stations r connected in parallel hence load is equally distributed,electric Power can be adjusted with help of step up or step down transformers.

• Mathew Abraham Transformer does not increase power

• Chitraja Rajan The demand for electricity varies randomly within a day itself...so there should be something which should be adjusted according to the demand.

• Vishnu Mohan G huge capacitors? i think i read somewhere like this.

• Rajat Sharma

Hi All, the question is very smart, i think electricity stored before generation is stored in Water(DAM), Uranium Rods(Nuclear), HydroCarbons(Coal, GAS). Electricity can only store when it is in Direct Current format like in Batteries, Capacitor(its a very small time to store/release) Well there are many source where we can store electricity. When electricity is in demand then Power generation takes place within huge Alternators, this powers generation takes places in terms of Phase Shift between all the power Houses across the country, if this phase shift is disturb then power grid fails. after this the transformers come into picture so as to reduce Resistance loses.

### Electric field inside a dielectric

Why does the electric field inside a dielectric decrease when it is placed in an external electric field?

The net electric field inside a dielectric decreases due to polarization. The external electric field polarizes the dielectric and an electric field is produced due to this polarization. This internal electric field will be opposite to the external electric field and therefore the net electric field inside the dielectric will be less
