Difference between conductors and insulators with examples

The difference between conductors and insulators is that conductors are those materials that conducts electric current easily while insulators are those materials which do not conduct current easily. Conductors A conductor is a material that easily conducts electrical current.Most metals are good conductors.The best conductors are single element materials,such as copper(Cu),silver(Ag),gold(Au),which are characterized by atoms with only one valence electron ...

What is the difference between emf and potential difference?

The emf (electromotive force) is the the potential difference between the terminals of a battery when no current is flowing through an external circuit when the circuit is open.Potential difference is the voltage across the terminals of the battery when the current is being drawn from it to an external. If you want to learn difference between emf and potential ...

Pascal law and its applications

What is Pascal’s Law and how do we use it? An external force applied on the surface of a liquid increases the liquid pressure at the surface of the liquid. This increase in liquid pressure in transmitted equally in all directions and to the walls of the container in which it is filled. This result is called Pascal’s principle which ...

How does a Diffraction grating work?

“The diffraction grating is a useful device for analyzing light sources.It consists of a large number of equally spaced parallel slits.”Its working principle is based on the phenomenon of diffraction.The space between lines act as slits and these slits diffract the light waves thereby  producing a large number of beams which interfere in such a way to produce spectra. A ...

What is difference between electric potential and potential difference?

Electric potential at a point in an electric field is equal to the amount of  work  done in bringing a unit positive charge from infinity to that point.While Potential difference is the work done in carrying a unit positive charge from one point to another point while keeping the charge in equilibrium.Electric potential and potential difference both have same unit ...

Difference between mutual and self induction

image of self induction of a coil

The process in which a changing current in one coil induces emf in other coil,is called mutual induction.While the phenomenon in which a changing current in a coil induces an emf in itself is called self induction. What is Mutual induction? “The process of inducing e.m.f in the secondary coil by changing the magnetic flux of the primary coil with ...

Difference between centripetal and centrifugal force with examples

Centripetal force definition “The force which is directed towards the centre of circle is called centripetal force.” Explanation: Consider a body moving with uniform speed in a circular path.In this case velocity changes only in direction and not in magnitude.Applying Newton’s first law of motion we find that some external force must be acting on the particle.Without presence of external ...

bohr atomic model and theory for hydrogen atom with postulates

 Bohr’s theory of the  hydrogen atom The Rutherford model of the atom and the experimental formula of atomic spectra helped Bohr is solving the problem of atomic structure.In 1913 he proposed a model for the structure of a hydrogen atom based on his experimental observations.  Bohr atomic model postulates Neil Bohr based his theory of hydrogen atom on the following ...
