===========================

(1a)

water passes through a dam, and into a river below. The more water that passes through a

dam, the more energy is produced. Once a dam is

built, an artificial man-made lake is created behind the dam. Electricity is produced by a device called a turbine.

Turbines contain metal coils surrounded by magnets. When the magnets spin over the metal coils, electricity is produced. Turbines are located inside dams. The falling water spins the magnets.

Given:

M=10

U=?

V=mu

F=+5cm

V=10u(virtual image)

using the real is positive convention

1/f=1/u+1/v

1/5=1/u-1/10u

1/5=10-1/10u

1/5=9/10u

10u=45

u=45/10

u=4.5cm

The object must be placed 4.5cm from the microscope.

==========================================

(2)

The distance covered S by a body with initail speed U and final speed V in time t is

distance = average speed x time

S = (u+v/2)t

first equation

acceleration = change in velocity/time

a=v-u/t

v-u=at

v=u+at

putting the first equation into S = (u+v/2)t we have

S = (u+u+at/2)t

S = (2u+at/2)t

S = (u+at/2/2)t

S = ut+1/2at^2

This is the second equation

Time taken for ball to fall is the same as when the ball is dropped from that height

Hence:

t^2=20/5

t^2=4

t= √4

t=2secs

(i) Heat is nothing but the amount of energy in a body. As against this, temperature is something that measures the intensity of heat.

(ii) Heat measures both kinetic and potential energy contained by molecules in an object. On the other hand, temperature measures average kinetic energy of molecules in substance.

(iii) The main feature of heat is that it travels from hotter region to cooler region. Unlike temperature, which rises when heated and falls when cooled.

Show that the escape velocity(Ve) of an object from the earth surface is √2Gme/r

To prove the escape velocity (Ve) of an object from the earth surface we can say let the kinetic energy of the object of mass M is

Ek=1/2MVe^2

When an object is at any given point P which is at a distance X from the centre of the earth the force of unity between the object and earth is

F=Gmm/X^2

Work done is taken the body against gravitational attraction DW=Fdx=Gmm/X^2 DX

Where W=work done in taking the body against gravitational attraction

W={R DW= {R Gmm/X^2 DM

=Gmm {R X^2 DM = Gmm [X^2/Y {R

= -Gmm [1/X]R = – Gmm [1/~ – 1/R]

Or, W=Gmm/R

For the object to escape from the earth surface
