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.?”

(Answer)

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

Answer:

18 gauge corresponds to a diameter of 1.22 mm

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

10 gauge means diameter 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

$\LARGE \bg_white R=\frac{\rho l}{A}$
Which gives
$\LARGE \bg_white \frac{l_{1}}{A_{1}}=\frac{l_{2}}{A_{2}}$
As resistivity is same.

$\LARGE \bg_white l_{2}=\frac{l_{1}A_{2}}{A_{1}}=\frac{l_{1}r_{2}^{2}}{r_{1}^{2}}$

Substitute the values and you will get the answer.
