AIEEE 2005

A $20$ $cm$ long capillary tube is dipped in water. The water rises up to $8$ $cm.$ If the entire arrangement is put in a freely falling elevator the length of water column in the capillary tube will be
A
$10$ $cm$
B
$8$ $cm$
C
$20$ $cm$
D
$4$ $cm$

Explanation

In freely falling elevator $g$ = 0

Water fills the tube entirely in gravity less condition. Hence, length of water column in the capillary tube is 20 cm.

AIEEE 2005

If $S$ is stress and $Y$ is young's modulus of material of a wire, the energy stored in the wire per unit volume is
A
${{{S^2}} \over {2Y}}$
B
$2{S^2}Y$
C
${S \over {2Y}}$
D
${{2Y} \over {{S^2}}}$

Explanation

Energy stored per unit volume of wire,

$E = {1 \over 2} \times \,stress\, \times \,strain$

$\therefore$ $E = {1 \over 2} \times \,stress\, \times \,{{stress} \over Y} = {1 \over 2}{{{S^2}} \over Y}$

[ As Young's modulus(Y) = ${{Stress} \over {Strain}}$

$\therefore$ Strain = ${{Stress} \over Y}$ ]

AIEEE 2004

A radiation of energy $E$ falls normally on a perfectly reflecting surface. The momentum transferred to the surface is
A
$Ec$
B
$2E/c$
C
$E/c$
D
$E/{c^2}$

Explanation

Momentum of photon $= {E \over c}$

Change in momentum $= {{2E} \over c}$

$=$ momentum transferred to the surface

(the photon will reflect with same magnitude of momentum in opposite direction)

AIEEE 2004

If two soap bubbles of different radii are connected by a tube
A
air flows from the smaller bubble to the bigger
B
air flows from bigger bubble to the smaller bubble till the sizes are interchanged
C
air flows from the bigger bubble to the smaller bubble till the sizes become equal
D
there is no flow of air.

Explanation

Pressure inside the bubble, P $= {p_0} + {{4T} \over R}$

So $P \propto {1 \over R}$ where R is the radius of the bubble. It means pressure inside a smaller bubble is greater than the inside of a bigger bubble.

So when two bubbles are connected by a tube, air will flow from smaller bubble to bigger bubble and the size of bigger bubble will increase.
