Diamagnetic and Paramagnetic Simple Pendulum Time Periods

If we have 3 simple pendulums of different material. One of them is dimagnetic one is paramagnetic and another one is of ferromagnetic material. What type of change in their periodic time they will show, if there masses are identical?

Asked Akshay

The Time period of a simple pendulum does not depend on the material of the bob

current electricity physics

Why is it so that current through external resistance is maximum when total internal resistance of the circuit is equal to external resistance?

Asked Shiny

Please refer to the following

  1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_power_transfer_theorem

Projectile motion

A person observe a bird on tree 39.6m high and at distance of 59.2m. With what velocity the person should throw an arrow at an angle of 45°so that it may hit the bird.

Asked Khusi

momentum, inertia and an interesting question

Hello, I have asked several engineers this question but none of them can give me an answer.  my question is: Suppose we had two guns, one with a barrel length of 20 inches and one with a barrel length of 10 inches.  if they both fired the same type of bullet projectile with the necessary differing powder charge to give those bullet projectiles muzzle velocities of 3000 feet per second, from both guns, at the same time, would the bullet from the shorter barrel slow down first?



boat crossing river relative velocity

During the entire motion of a boat crossing a river, what would be the minimum time to cross the river along the shortest path possible? (I.e., considering both minimum time and shortest distance of approach)

Asked Namisha

Resultant Velocity – A motor boat is racing towards north

A motor boat is racing towards north at 25kmh-1 and the water current in that region is 10kmh-1 in the direction of 60° east of south. Find the resultant velocity of the boat.

Calculate the force on the Hammer

A hammer of mass 400 grams moving at a speed of 50 ms-1 strikes a nail . The nail stop the hammer for small interval of time i.e. 0.025 seconds . What is the change of momentum suffered by hammer also calculate the force of the hammer on the nail . What will be the force on hammer
