- Two cables hold a mass of 100kg, joining in the middle of the top of the mass. Two helicopters lift a cable each and hover so that the height of the mass is constant. Each cable makes an angle of 57° with the normal. Find the tension in each cable.
- A photon of wavelength 656.3nm is emitted in the Balmer series of a Hydrogen emission lamp. (a). Show that the frequency of the photon is 4.57*10^14 Hz. (b).Use the Planck-Einstein relationship to calculate the energy of the photon.
- A circuit with a cell of voltage 6V and two resistors of resistance 6 Ohms each connected in parallel. What is the current through the Cell?
- An exoplanet, 0.01% the mass of the Sun, orbits a star 2 times the mass of the Sun at a distance of 1AU = 1.5x10^8 km. Using Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation, determine the force between the exoplanet and the star. Mass of Sun = 2x10^30kg.
- What is a boson, as described by the standard model?
