In LCR circuit, the capacitance is changed from C to 4C. For the same resonant frequency the inductance should be changed from L to
For resonance:
X_{L} = X_{C}
ωL_{ }= 1/ωC
ω = 1/√2C
2πf = 1/√2C
For same resonant frequency:
LC should be constant.
So, LC = 4CL_{1}
⇒ L1 = LC/4C = L/4
A = N + Z, where A is mass number and Z is atomic number and N is number of neutrons
So A > Z except for Hatom in which A = Z as N = 0

Minimum no. of 8 μF and 250 V capacitors, used to make a combination of 16 μF and 1000 V, is
To have 1000 V tolerance, you need to stack up four 8μF capacitor in series. The equivalent capacitance of 4 such capacitors is:
⟹ Ceq = (8μF)/4 = 2μF
To make a total of 16 μF that tolerates 1000V, you need 8 set of them arranged in parallel such that
⟹Ceq′ = 8 × 2μF = 16μF
∴ Total number of capacitors = 8×4 = 32
A fireman of mass 60 kg slides down a pole. He is pressing the pole with a force of 600 N. The coefficient of friction between the hands and the pole is 0.5, with what acceleration will the fireman slide down (g=10m/s^{2})
Here mass, m = 60kg
and coefficient of friction, μ = 0.5
and g =10m/s^{2}
Force applied by fireman, F = 600N
Friction Force, f = μmg = 0.5×60×10 = 300N
Net movement force,

⟹ 600 − 300 = ma
⟹ a = 300/60
⟹ a = 5m/s^{2}
Hence the acceleration with which the fireman slide down is 5m/s^{2}

Given, Centripetal force = mv^{2}/r = k/r^{2}
Kinetic Energy = mv^{2}/2 = k/2r
Potential Energy = −∫^{r}_{∞ }Fdr
the lower limit has been taken as ∞ because potential energy is zero at infinty

⇒ −k r^{1}/1^{r}_{∞}
⇒ −k/r
Total energy = k/2r − k/r = −k/2r

If the equation of SHM is y = a sin (4 π t + φ) how much is its frequency?
Comparing with a standard Equation of SHM ,
y = a sin(wt + φ)
ω = 4π, and θ = φ = initial phase.
So frequency is as follows :
freq. = 4π/2π
⇒ f = 2 Hz
So final answer is 2 Hz frequency.
The phase difference between two points separated by 0.8 m in a wave of frequency 120 Hz is 90^{o}. Then the velocity of wave will be
Δϕ = 90^{∘ }= a/2
Δx = 0.8m
we know that Δϕ = (2π/α).Δx
So λ = (2π.Δx)/Δϕ = (2π×0.8)/(π/2)
⇒ λ = 3.2m
v = 120 Hz & v = vλ
velocity v = 120×3.2 = 384m/s

A particle of mass m moving with velocity ν collides with a stationary particle of mass 2 m and sticks to it. The speed of the system, after collision, will be
Mass of first particle is m_{1} = m and its velocity before collision u_{1 }= v
Mass of second particle is m_{2} = 2m and its velocity before collision u_{2} = 0
Let the velocity of combined system just after collision be V.
Using conservation of linear momentum :
m_{1}u_{1 }+ m_{2}u_{2} = (m_{1 }+ m_{2})V
∴ (m)(v) + (2m)(0) = (m + 2m)V
⟹ V = v/3
