The respective number of significant figures for the numbers 23.023, 0.0003 and 2.1 × 10–3 are
(i) All the non-zero digits are significant.
(ii) All the zeros between two non-zero digits are significant, no matter where the decimal point is, if at all.
(iii) If the number is less than 1, the zero(s) on the right of decimal point but to the left of the first non-zero digit are not significant.
(iv) The power of 10 is irrelevant to the determination of significant figures. According to the above rules, 23.023 has 5 significant figures. 0.0003 has 1 significant figures. 2.1 × 10–3 has 2 significant figures.
Let [ε0] denote the dimensional formula of the permittivity of the vaccum, and [μ0] that of the permeability of the vacuum. If M = mass, L = length, T = time and I = electric current :
A dense collection of equal number of electrons and positive ions is called neutral plasma. Certain solids containing fixed positive ions surrounded by free electrons can be treated as neutral plasma. Let 'N' be the number density of free electrons, each of mass 'm'. When the electrons are subjected to an electric field, they are displaced relatively away from the heavy positive ions. If the electric field becomes zero, the electrons begin to oscillate about the positive ions with a natural angular frequency 'wP' which is called the plasma frequency. To sustain the oscillations, a time varying electric field needs to be applied that has an angular frequency w, where a part of the energy is absorbed and a part of it is reflected. As w approaches wP, all the free electrons are set to resonance together and all the energy is reflected. This is the explanation of high reflectivity of metals.
Taking the electronic charge as 'e' and the permittivity as 'ε0', use dimensional analysis to determine the correct expression for wP.
