Q1: Assertion: The dimensions of angular velocity are [M0L0T-1].
Reason: Angular velocity is a scalar quantity.

Q2: Assertion: Two physical quantities having the same dimensions are always equal. Reason: Dimensions are just labels and do not affect the numerical value of a quantity.

### Section E. Case Based Questions

Case 1: A student measures the length of a pencil using two different rulers. Ruler A has a least count of 0.1 cm, and ruler B has a least count of 0.01 cm. The student obtains measurements of 7.2 cm using ruler A and 7.25 cm using ruler B. Calculate the percentage error in each measurement and discuss the precision of each ruler.

Case 2: A student measures the time taken for a pendulum to complete 10 oscillations. He records three sets of measurements as follows: 14.5 s, 14.3 s, and 14.4 s. Calculate the mean time and the absolute error in the measurement.

### Section H. Numericals

Q1: Find the dimensions of (a/b) in the equation: where P is pressure, x is distance and t is time.

Q2: Find an expression for viscous force F acting on a tiny steel ball of radius r moving in a viscous liquid of viscosity η with a constant speed ν by the method of dimensional analysis.

Q3: Suppose there existed a planet that went around the sun twice as fast as the earth. What would be its orbital size as compared to that of the earth?

Q4: A great physicist of this century (P.A.M. Dirac) loved playing with numerical values of Fundamental constants of nature. This led him to an interesting observation. Dirac found that from the basic constants of atomic physics (c, e, mass of electron, mass of proton) and the gravitational constant G, he could arrive at a number with the dimension of time. Further, it was a very large number, its magnitude being close to the present estimate on the age of the universe (15 billion years). From the table of fundamental constants in the book, try to see if you too can construct this number (or any other interesting number you can think of). If its coincidence with the age of the universe were significant, what would this imply for the constancy of fundamental constants?
