Two blocks of mass $$2 \mathrm{~kg}$$ and $$4 \mathrm{~kg}$$ are connected by a metal wire going over a smooth pulley as shown in figure. The radius of wire is $$4.0 \times 10^{-5} \mathrm{~m}$$ and Young's modulus of the metal is $$2.0 \times 10^{11} \mathrm{~N} / \mathrm{m}^2$$. The longitudinal strain developed in the wire is $$\frac{1}{\alpha \pi}$$. The value of $$\alpha$$ is _________. [Use $$g=10 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}^2$$]

The depth below the surface of sea to which a rubber ball be taken so as to decrease its volume by $$0.02 \%$$ is _______ $$m$$.

(Take density of sea water $$=10^3 \mathrm{kgm}^{-3}$$, Bulk modulus of rubber $$=9 \times 10^8 \mathrm{~Nm}^{-2}$$, and $$g=10 \mathrm{~ms}^{-2}$$)

A big drop is formed by coalescing 1000 small identical drops of water. If $$E_1$$ be the total surface energy of 1000 small drops of water and $$E_2$$ be the surface energy of single big drop of water, then $$E_1: E_2$$ is $$x: 1$$ where $$x=$$ ________.

Each of three blocks $$\mathrm{P}, \mathrm{Q}$$ and $$\mathrm{R}$$ shown in figure has a mass of $$3 \mathrm{~kg}$$. Each of the wires $$\mathrm{A}$$ and $$\mathrm{B}$$ has cross-sectional area $$0.005 \mathrm{~cm}^2$$ and Young's modulus $$2 \times 10^{11} \mathrm{~N} \mathrm{~m}^{-2}$$. Neglecting friction, the longitudinal strain on wire $$B$$ is ________ $$\times 10^{-4}$$. (Take $$\mathrm{g}=10 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}^2$$)
