The wavelength of the first spectral line in the Balmer series of hydrogen atom is 6561 $$\mathop A\limits^o $$. The wavelength of the second spectral line in the Balmer series of singly-ionized helium atom is
A meter bridge is set up as shown, to determine an unknown resistance X using a standard 10 $$\Omega$$ resistor. The galvanometer shows null point when tapping-key is at 52 cm mark. The end-corrections are 1 cm and 2 cm, respectively, for the ends A and B. The determined value of X is
A metal rod of length L and mass m is pivoted at one end. A thin disk of mass M and radius R ( < L) is attached at its centre to the free end of the rod. Consider two ways the disc is attached : (case A). The disc is not free to rotate about its centre and (case B) the disc is free to rotate about its centre. The rod-disc system performs SHM in vertical plane after being released from the same displaced position. Which of the following statement(s) is(are) true?
A composite block is made of slabs A, B, C, D and E of different thermal conductivities (given in terms of a constant K) and sizes (given in terms of length, L) as shown in the figure. All slabs are of same width. Heat Q flows only from left to right through the blocks. Then, in steady-state
