At what temperature will the Celsius scale coincide with the Fahrenheit scale? | Physics Past Questions

The relation between the Fahrenheit and Celsius scale is given by the equation.
⇒(∘F−32)180=∘C100

Now, let us assume that Fahrenheit and Celsius scale coincide at x∘
Therefore,
⇒(∘x−32)180=∘x100
ON solving,
We get,
⇒59(∘x−32)=∘x
Therefore,
⇒x=−40∘
Therefore, Celsius and Fahrenheit scale coincide at -40 degrees. Bebe replied to Victor Titus 3 months ago Bebe provided a contribution 3 months ago

A 500kg truck moving with a velocity of 6m/s collides with a stationary 100kg car… | Physics Past Questions

Mass of truck, m¹=500kg
Velocity of truck, v¹=6m/s
Mass of car, m²=100kg
Velocity of car, v²=0m/s
m¹v¹+m²v²=(m¹+m²)V
Where V is the common velocity after collision
(500*6)+(100*0)=(500+100)V
3000+0=600V
V=$$\cfrac{3000}{600}$$
V=5m/s Bebe provided a contribution 3 months ago

A gas which obeys Charles law exactly has a volume of 283cm$$^{3}$$ at 10$$^{\circ}$$C. what is the volume at 30$$^{\circ}$$C?… | Physics Past Questions

Volume, V¹=283cm³
Temperature, T¹=10°C
Converting 10°C To Kelvin =10+273=283K
Volume, V²=?
Temperature, T²=30°C
Converting 30°C To Kelvin=30+273=303K

$$\cfrac{V¹}{T¹}=\cfrac{V²}{T²}$$
$$\cfrac{283}{283}=\cfrac{V²}{303}$$
$$V²=\cfrac{283*303}{283}$$
V²=303cm³ Bebe provided a contribution 4 months ago

Which of the following instruments would be best suited in studying the stars? | Physics Past Questions

The telescope operates at optical to mid-infrared wavelengths, but has an especially powerful capability to image large areas of the sky at optical wavelengths. Astronomers use these images to economically estimate the distances and properties of galaxies. Bebe provided a contribution 4 months ago

Let the number of images formed be n
And the angle of inclination be $$\theta$$
n=360/$$\theta$$
If n is even, we subtract one
But if n is odd, we leave it
Now, n=360÷180
n=3
Now, n is even so we subtract one from it
n=3-1

A ball is projected horizontally from the top of a hill with a velocity of 20m/s…. | Physics Past Questions

Initial velocity, u=20m/s
Time, t=4s
Acceleration due to gravity, g=10m/s²
Height of the hill, h=?
h=ut$$\pm$$½gt²
h is positive because the body is falling down
h=ut+½gt²
h=(20$$\times$$4)+½$$\times$$10$$\times$$4²

If the linear expansivity of a metal rod is 4 $$\times$$ 10$$^{-5}$$ per $$^{\circ}$$C, what will be the new length of the rod if it is heated from 15$$^{\circ}$$C t… | Physics Past Questions

Coefficient of linear eapsnsivity,$$\alpha=4\times10^-⁵$$
Change in temperature, $$\Delta\theta=95°C-15°C =80° C$$
Original length, l¹=20cm
Final length, l²=xcm
$$\alpha=(l²-l¹)÷l¹\Delta\theta 4\times10^–⁵=(x-20)÷(20\times80) x=20.064cm$$ Bebe provided a contribution 4 months ago

Initial velocity, u=40m/s
Time, t=20s
Final velocity, v=0m/s since the truck is coming to a halt
Acceleration, a=?
But,
v=u+at
0=40+a(20)
0=40+20a
20a=-40
a=-2m/s²
To find the distance traveled,
v²=u²+2as
0²=40²+2(-2)(s)
0=1600-4s
4s=1600
