Form of Kepler’s in a different universe!

Mukta asked:

“imagine a planetary system in which gravitational force varied as 1/r instead of 1/r2 .what relation would correspond to KEPLER’S THIRD LAW (SQUARE OF TIME PERIOD / CUBE OF SEMI MAJOR AXIS.?”


If the gravitational force varied as 1/r instead of 1/r2 , then Kepler’s Law of periods would have to be modified accordingly and it would give T proportional to r.

Wire Gauge and Resistance problem

I am using 18 gauge nicrome wire having ohm of 17.3 , 220 volt. I want to use 10 gauge wire how to decide the length?

Padmanava asked


18 gauge corresponds to a diameter of 1.22 mm

Therefore radius r1= 1.22/2=0.61 mm=0.00061m

10 gauge meansĀ diameterĀ is 3.25 mm

Radius r2 = 3.25/2=1.625mm=0.001625m

Sine the resistance needs to be the same, we can use the formula

Which gives

As resistivity is same.

Substitute the values and you will get the answer.
