Updated on 13-Oct-2022 11:19:47
Introduction According to Hooke’s Law, it can be stated that any kind of displacement and deformation that is noticed within an object seems to be directly proportional to the force applied upon the stated body of load. Following this principle, the spring balance will perform the practical experiment by determining the mass of two different bodies. In this device, a beam is placed in the centre with the support of an agate knife-edge, that rests on the vertical pillar. The device is appropriate for calibrating masses having a range of 10 mg to 1 kg. Theory Figure 1: Beam balance ... Read More

Introduction Identifying the path of the white light through a triangular prism is an important scientific experiment. It is used to exhibit the spectrum of visible light. Different types of light hold different colors when they pass through a triangular prism they are divided into multiple spectra and thus by this experiment is found that a mere white light possesses the different colors in it. This experiment was first done by Isaac Newton in 1665. Some significant facts of Triangular Prism Triangular prism is generally a polyhedron that has two parallel bases. When a particular ray of light divided into ... Read More

Introduction The nature of a light’s path-changing process is evaluated based on the experiment in which the path of light is traced when it crosses a glass slab. According to Snell’s law of refraction, the nature of light varies from its traveling medium. Interpreting the result helps an individual to understand the reason behind changes in the value of refraction. Figure 1: Light passing through a glass slab Aims The aim of this experiment is to trace the exact path in which light passes if it has to pass through a rectangular glass slab. Another aim of this experiment ... Read More

Introduction Theory of Boyle’s law is based on the properties of several gases and their laws. For any gaseous substances, it is stated that the gaseous matter does not have any proper shape or volume and it seems to adopt the shape where it is contained. The primary macroscopic properties of gases include their volume, pressure, mass and temperature respectively. All these properties of gasses can be easily explained by the theory of kinetic theory, where the respective motions and molecular composition of gases are considered. Theory of Boyle’s law Prior to defining of Theory of Boyle’s law, ... Read More

Introduction In order to get the measurement of a sheet made with any metal, different tools are used including screw gauge and Vernier Callipers. Using this particular measurement tool, one can be able to measure the width of a metal sheet in a more precise manner that is up to 0.005 mm. The screw gauge has two successive threads that are separated by a similar amount of space. Focusing on such a concept of physics, the current tutorial will explain the experiment for measuring the thickness of a sheet by using a screw gauge. Aim The core intention ... Read More

To find the value of V for different U values of Concave Mirror find Focal Length

Tutorialspoint
Updated on 13-Oct-2022 11:19:47
Introduction At the time when the subject is found in focus, the distance between the image sensor and the lens is considered the focal length of the lens. This concept is a crucial one as it helps to determine the nature of the mirror because it helps to understand the divergence and convergence of the light inside an optical system. In the cases where the focal length of the mirror is found to be positive, converge of light is found as well. Aim This experiment is conducted with the intention of finding the value of v in accordance with ... Read More

To find the weight of a given Body using Parallelogram Law of Vectors

Tutorialspoint
Updated on 13-Oct-2022 11:19:47
Introduction The use of the vectors law of the Parallelogram is helping in finding the direction of material and it can help develop the notion of an object’s weight. According to the parallelogram law for the addition of the vector, if two vectors can be expressed in extent and direction by the neighbouring sides of a parallelogram, then the consequence is expressed by the parallelogram’s oblique, in both direction and magnitude. This tutorial helps understand if vectors are illustrated in the same direction as slides and the results can appear as the parallelogram’s diagonal. One of the primary purposes of ... Read More

To find the Surface Tension of Water by Capillary Rise Method

Tutorialspoint
Updated on 13-Oct-2022 11:19:47
Introduction Capillarity is a combined function that helps determine the water’s surface tension with the utilisation of the method named the capillarity rise. In this method, the adhesive and the cohesive forces are the causing liquid or water to rise in the pipe to a tiny diameter. The cohesive force also functions at the same duration to underrate the length between the molecules of water by drawing the meniscus up to the bottom against the gravitational forces. In this tutorial, gaining knowledge on the surface tension with the utilisation of the method called the capillary rise. The usefulness of the ... Read More
