    AskPhysics Blog Feed Dear students, CBSE has given you more time for exams. We have approximately 7 days before the Physics exams. How to use this seven days effectively for a thorough revision is very important. 7-8 days of sleeping is a must. One hour of exercise 1 to 2 hours for break fast lunch […]
  • Dreams come true only for those who do their part
    AskPhysics Blog Feed I was recently narrating the life story of a girl from Dindigul who got married to a police constable at the age of 14. She was not even reached class 10. She became the mother of two kids by the age of 18. During that time she had to accompany her husband […]
  • “DID THOSE PHILOSOPHERS WORK IN VAIN”
    AskPhysics Blog Feed “The Philosophers who worked in search of the Philosophers’ stone and those set themselves dedicated to find the elixir of life”The works of those in search of the Philosopher’s stone didn’t go in vain, They made the beginning. The beginning itself was so wonderful that anyone who got touched by the idea […]
  • Quarks, conservation, entanglement
    AskPhysics Blog Feed Doubt from AskPhysics.comI have heard the following statements-> 1. Quarks always exist in a group of 2 or 3, and can not stand alone. 2. Protons are made up of 2 up quarks, and 1 down quark. 3. Quantum mechanics allows us to entangle a particle by somehow dividing it into 2(For […]

Can the frictional electricity produced during landing of a plane be used for constructive purposes?

As we know that in aeroplane during landing the charged produced in it due to the friction with ground are earthed through its wheels; can this charge be stored with the help of a capacitor and used for useful purpose?

Answer:

I feel that this is a metter for research.

If you feel otherwise and know some method to tap this potential, please post.

Doubts on electric field lines and flux

English: Field of a positive point charge. Thu...
English: Field of a positive point charge. Thumbnail version (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Q1.Is the number of electric feild lines due to a charge DEFINITE?
Q2.If it is infinite, then the electric flux due to a charge should be infinite(flux gives the num. Of elctric feild lines passing through an area)?
AND
Flux should be equal irrespective of the magnitude of charge.
Q3.If it is definite,then it will always be a natural number and cannot be a decimal,but when we take out flux for an Electron,it yeilds a decimal value.
E.flux~ magn. Of charge

What is the mechanical energy of a bird on top of a moving Ship?


A bird is at rest on d top of a stick of moving ship….!! what is the mechanical energy that exists in the bird ???” – This question was posted by Fatima

Answer: The mechanical energy of the bird is both Potential and Kinetic as the bird is at a height with respect to ground and the bird is in motion along with the ship.

(Any deeper discussion is welcome)


A bullet of mass 20g enters into a fixed block with aspeed 40m/s and stops in it. find the change in internal energy during the process.

A bullet of mass 20 g enters into a fixed block with a speed 40m/s and stops in it.
find the change in internal energy during the process?

Harsh Asked.

The question is open to visitors to post answer as comment

Differences between mass and charge

  1. Charge is of two types, mass is only of one kind
  2. There are two types of forces (attraction and repulsion) between charges, but there is only one kind (attraction) between masses
  3. Charge is quantized, but quantization of mass is not established so far
  4. Charge has SI unit coulomb, the SI unit of mass is kg
  5. Charge is conserved, but mass alone is not conserved (Mass + Energy is conserved)
  6. Charge cannot exist without a mass, but mass can exist without a net charge

Geothermal Energy

p.tejaswini asked

“Why is geothermal energy an alternative source of nuclear energy?”

There is some problem with the doubt you asked. It is correct to say “Geothermal energy and Nuclear energy are alternative sources of energy

Sun is the ultimate source of energy for earth. The energy of fuels, wind energy, water energy, food – all these are derived from sun. But Geothermal energy and nuclear energy are not derived from solar energy.

Geo Thermal Energy
Geo Thermal Energy

The centre of the Earth is around 6000 degrees Celsius – easily hot enough to melt rock. Even a few kilometres down, the temperature can be over 250 degrees Celsius if the Earth’s crust is thin. In general, the temperature rises one degree Celsius for every 30 – 50 metres you go down, but this does vary depending on location

In volcanic areas, molten rock can be very close to the surface. Sometimes we can use that heat.

Geothermal energy has been used for thousands of years in some countries for cooking and heating.

The name “geothermal” comes from two Greek words: “geo” means “Earth” and “thermal” means “heat”.

Waking up the quantum vacuum

A quantum field propagating in a curved spacetime can have fluctuations in its vacuum energy density that are large enough to completely dominate its classical energy density.
