Laws of motion – The problem of descending balloon.

A balloon is descending with a constant acceleration ‘a’ less than acceleration due to gravity. The mass of the balloon, with its basket and contents, is M. What mass m, of ballast(sand bags) should be released so that the balloon will begin to accelerate upward with constant acceleration ‘a’?

Problem from Ray Optics

A diverging beam of light from a point source S having divergence angle alpha falls symetricaally on a glass slab as shown in fig.The angles of incidence of the two extreme rays are equal.If the thickness of the glass slab is t and the refractive index is n,then the divergence angle of the emergent beam is,
a)0
b)alpha
c)sin inverse 1/n
d)2 sin inverse 1/n
