All nucleus are made up off protons and neutrons. A proton has the charge value equal to electron but the mass of electron is negligible as compared to protons and neutrons. In nuclear physics, each element is represent by where Z is the atomic number which is nothing but the number of protons and A is the mass number indicating the sum of numbers of proton and neutron and X represent the symbol…

Since the discovery of atomic nucleus in 1911 by Rutherford, the subject of Nuclear Physics has achieve a lot in the century. Rutherford demonstrated that the alpha particle scattering seen during his experiment can only be explained if there was a positively charged nucleus whose radius is of the order and the radius of the atom of the order . Along with this Rutherford also suggested that the…

A simple pendulum is a heavy mass (bob) suspended by very low weight inextensible and flexible string which undergo to and fro motion in a plane from mean position.

Circular motion refers to the movement of an object in a circular path. By circular we mean motion about a fixed point. The most suitable examples of circular motion includes motion of the planet around the sun (they are not exactly circular but calculation gets easier and we approximate them to be circular) and stone whirled in circle by attaching it to a string.

Angular DisplacementIn circular…

The value of g at the surface of the earth is given by the equation and its average value on the surface of the earth is about . But we have to remember that the value of g changes with R and some other factors which we will discuss below. Even from above equation we can tell that as the body moves above or below the surface of the earth, the value of g changes.

Variation of g above the surface…

The motion of heavenly objects like Planets, sun, natural satellites etc has drawn a lot of attention in the past the the mystery of their motion remain unsolved until 1665. Sir Issac Newton at the age of 23 made one of the biggest contribution to Physics by simply showing that the force by which moon revolves around the Earth is same force responsible for causing apple to fall to the ground. Sir…

Integral calculus the the reverse process of differentiation. So if differentiation of f(x) is g(x) then f(x) is called the integral or anti-derivative of g(x). It is written as

If , where C is any constant. Thus, if f(x) is the integral of g(x) then f(x)+1 or f(x)+5 or in general f(x)+C is also an integral of g(x). So, based on this fact we write where C is any constant.

Elastic collision in one dimension

Any collision is elastic if the total kinetic energy of the colliding particles remains conserved. Let us consider two bodies A and B with masses and are moving with the initial velocity and respectively in the same direction and same straight line. In this problem let us suppose that velocity of one object is greater than other and they are on the collision path. In this situation object A…

Projectile motion in Horizontal direction

Let us suppose that an object is thrown from a certain height ‘h’ above the ground in horizontal direction with initial velocity ‘u’. This horizontal velocity remains unaffected by the acceleration due to gravity. In this case ‘g’ remains constant throughout the motion. There are two way motion in the projectile, one is vertical motion and another is horizontal motion.

Vertical motion
