## Inductance of a solenoid derivation

Inductance of a solenoid Now we will prove “Inductance of a solenoid derivation”. Consider a solenoid having n turns per unit length.When current passes through the solenoid, magnetic field is produced inside the solenoid which is directed along the axis of the solenoid.The magnetic field in space outside the solenoid is so weak that it is considered zero. The inductance ...

## Sound intensity level with examples

“Sound energy passing per second through a unit area held perpendicular to the direction of propagation of sound waves is called intensity of sound.”The sound waves transfer energy from the sounding body to the listener.The intensity of sound depends on the amplitude of sound waves.Intensity is a physical quantity and can be measured accurately.The unit of intensity of sound is ...

## Moment of inertia equation and formulas of rigid objects

Moment of inertia is defined as:”The sum of the products of the mass of each particle of the body and square of its perpendicular distance from axis.” Or : The product mass and the square of the perpendicular distance from the axis of rotation is known as moment of inertia.   I = mr² For a rigid body moving about ...

## Difference between density,mass and volume with examples

Mass and density are two physical quantities.Mass is the quantity of matter of an object while density is mass per unit volume.They are two different quantities but these quantities have relationships with each other, higher will be the mass higher will be the density. Now! We are going learn in detail about mass and density. What is mass? The mass of ...

## Kirchhoff’s voltage and current law with examples

What is Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law? Kirchhoff’s voltage law is a fundamental circuit law that states that the algebraic sum of all the voltages around a closed path is zero or, in other words,the sum of the voltage drops equals the total source voltage. Kirchhoff’s loop rule In an electric circuit, the voltages across the resistors(voltage drops) always have polarities opposite ...

## Difference between electric potential and electric potential energy

Electric potential definition “Electric potential at a point in electric field is the amount of work done to bring the unit positive charge from infinity to that point.” The gravitational potential at point in the gravitational field is the gravitational potential energy of a unit mass placed at that point.In this way ,the electric potential at any point in the ...

## Joules law of heating equation

State Joule’s law of heating “The heat produced in a conductor is: (1) Directly proportion the square of current passing through the conductor,(H ∝ I²) keeping R and t constant; (2) Directly proportion to the resistance of the conductor (H ∝ R) keeping I and t constant;and (3)Directly proportional to the time of flow of current (H ∝ t) keeping I and R ...

## Gravitational field strength:formula & definition

What is the Gravitational field? “The space around the earth in which earth can exert a force of attraction on other bodies is called gravitational field.”A basic fact of the gravitation is that to particles exerts forces on one another.This is a direct interaction between the two particles and is called the action at a distance because the two particles ...
