Vimal Raj asks:
“A thick plane mirror forms a number of images of a point source of light . which image is brightest ?”
Answer: In the case of a thick plane mirror, reflection takes place at the two surfaces, (top and bottom surfaces) and images are formed due to both. The second surface is silvered and therefore the second image is the brightest. Further images are formed due to multiple reflections and due to absorption of light by medium the images become fainter.
If the front surface of the mirror is silvered, only one image will be formed.
1) A particle moves along a straight line parallel to the x-axis at a constant velocity, Its angular momentum about the origin?
2) Can a free electron moves from higher potential to low potential?
3) Progressive wave carries energy in a plane perpendicular to the plane wave front-is the statement true?
4) Why a heavier body doesn’t fall more quickly than a lighter body?
5) Is it possible to transfer electic charge from a body of a lower potential to a higher potential?
“A ball is projected vertically upwards with an initial velocity of 28m/s and is observed to pass a point 30m above the projection point,at what 2times does the ball pass these points?”
(Vimal Raj Answered)
ans : 1.356 sec and 1.444 sec .
from v=u+at we get t=2.8 . (time taken to reach the max height )
fm v2-u2=2aS we get S=39.2 m (max height reached)
observer at 30 m .
so , in btw distance btw observer and ball (at the top) =9.2 m
at top ball is at rest and time taken to reach the observer can be calculaed from S=ut + 1/2 at2 ,we get t=1.356s .
and next time can be calculated by 2.8 – 1.356 =1.444 sec .

Answer: Please refer to the following links for your answer.
“Both magnetic and electric feilds are perpendicular in a region.If we place an electron at rest in that region.what will be the path followed by that electron ?”
– asked Vimal
When the electron is at rest, it is not affected by magnetic field, but due to electric field, it will begin to move in a direction opposite to the field. This initial direction determines the plane of motion. Then it is acted upon by magnetic field as the motion starts
(The answer is incomplete. I am leaving it for the visitors to think and respond)
An experiment measures quantities a,b and c, and X is
if the percentage error in a,b,c are ±1%, ±5%, ±2% respectively, the percentage error in X will be
Percentage error = 1x percentage error in a + 2 x percentage error in b + 3 x percentage error in c
= 1×1 +2×5+3×2
SO there could be a misprint in the question posted by you.
