SOLID HEMISPHERE OF RADII R EACH, are placed in contact with each other with each other with their flat faces on a rough horizontal surface. A sphere of mass m and radius R is placed symmetrically on top of them. The normal reaction between the top sphere and any hemisphere assuming the system to be in state equilibrium is
With what speed will a clock have to be moving in order to run at a rate that is one half the rate of a clock at rest?

Using the formula for Relativistic Time (according to Special Theory of Relativity)
√[1 – (v²/c²)] = ½ → v² = (3/4)c²
v = [√3/2]*c = .866c
A spacecraft starts from earth moving at constant speed to planet A which is 20 light-hour away from Earth.
It takes 25 hour (according to an earth observer) for a spacecraft to reach this planet. Assuming that clocks are synchronized at the beginning of the journey, compare the time elapsed in the spacecraft frame for this one-way journey with the time elapsed as measured by an earth-based clock?

What is the angle between the directions of acceleration and velocity at the highest point of projectile?
At the highest point of a projectile, the vertical component of velocity is zero and the velocity is entirely horizontal. The direction of acceleration (due to gravity) is vertically downwards throughout the motion of the projectile.
Therefore, the angle between the direction of acceleration and velocity at the highest point of a projectile is 90 °
A fly is sitting in the middle of a wall of a cubic room of side ’a’.If it flies and sit to one of opposite corner of the wall. Find its displacement?
The coefficient of kinetic friction between the 2.00-kg and 3.00-kg blocks
is 0.300. The horizontal surface and the pulleys are frictionless, and the masses are released from rest.
a) Draw a free-body diagram for each block.
b) Determine the acceleration of each block.
c) Find the tension in the strings.
