    Troublesome problem with finding the electric current

    In this problem we have A wire with resistance per unit length of 32 Ω/m that is bent at a right angle. The second straight fragment of the same wire (The blue one) moves at the top of the first one at a speed of v = 4 m/s. The whole system is located in a magnetic field with an induction of B =...

    Finding the electric field along the line between charges

    Hey So I've been asked this question as part of my physics assignment (Its an advanced section question so significantly harder than the normal questions) and I've been stuck, my intuition tells me there should be two zero points, and initially I found a formula that only found one, however...

    Finding new Reynold's Number (Re) with decrease and increases in percentages

    This is the OG question: "A small hose in a machine carries a viscous fluid. When the machine is first turned on the fluid flows through the hose and the Reynold's number is 1800. As it warms up, there is a reduction of the density of the fluid of 1.61%, a reduction in the viscosity of...

    Finding density of an object with the weight and density of fluid?

    Hello, I am a bit stuck with a question "A large container of water initially reads 0.485 kg. A ball is hung in the air from another set of scales which initially read 0.112 kg. The ball is lowered until it is fully submerged. The readings on both scales are now 0.496 kg and 0.101 kg...

    Finding the power used to change phase?

    I have figured the heat added to the system so far, but can't figure out where to go from here to get the change in internal energy to work out the work(W)? https://imgur.com/a/4SiM6fd It is question number 3 right at the bottom of the photo. Thank you for any help.

    (Photoelectric effect) Finding velocity of ejected electron given wavelengths

    Hey, I'm in my senior year of highschool and I'm stuck on this problem that deals with things I haven't even learned (Canadian education system for ya). It has to do with the photoelectric effect. Given the wavelengths of an X-ray before and after it strikes an unknown metal...

    Finding area of solar collector

    Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me with this question: The total electric generating capacity of Canada is 81GW. What is the area (in km^2) of horizontal photovoltaic solar collector that could satisfy this need? Note the average insolation on a horizontal surface is 4.8kWh/m^2 for a...

    Finding a position vector of a pivot on a lever from its torque

    Hi guys, I have a problem here which I'm really stumped on. I have a rigid rod of 3.1m length, with two equal masses at either end. The pivot is placed so that the total torque is 25k N.m about the pivot, and I need to find it's location. I've drawn a diagram, a basis, calculated that the...

    Finding the mass of the planet

    Hi, I'm doing an independent course, so whenever I need help with a question it is very difficult to find it. The lesson I am on now has given me a question that I have no clue how to begin working on. Basically, a team of space explorers lands on a planet with a radius of 7.5*10^6 m. A...

    Finding an expression for the velcoity v as a function of time.

    Here's the problem: Suppose an object with mass m is projected with initial velocity v 0 along the horizontal direction. Assume quadratic air resistance of the form F drag = αv^2 , where F drag is the magnitude of the drag force. Find an expression for the velocity v as a function of time...
