Gravitational Potential Due to Point Mass and Uniform Ring

Last updated on August 29th, 2019 at 04:22 pmIn the main Gravitation¬†article, we have seen the expressions for the gravitational potential for different situations. Here we will rigorously derive expressions for the potential due to a Point Mass system and a Uniform Ring. The main idea for the calculation of gravitational potential is the calculation … Read moreGravitational Potential Due to Point Mass and Uniform Ring

Laws of Gravitation – Class 11 Physics

laws of gravitation

Last updated on September 6th, 2019 at 07:22 amGravitation or gravity is the most common of the four fundamental forces, we are familiar with. This is the force that acts on each and every single body having finite mass. On earth, gravity provides the weight to all physical objects and the moon’s gravity causes the … Read moreLaws of Gravitation – Class 11 Physics

Class 12 Physics: Electrostatics


Last updated on September 10th, 2019 at 05:19 amElectrostatics is a branch of physics that studies the properties of electric charges at a stationary position. Almost all of us are reasonably familiar with some of these electrostatic phenomena. Take the example of the attraction of small pieces of paper to the comb, after being used. … Read moreClass 12 Physics: Electrostatics

Class 11 Physics: Thermodynamics


Last updated on September 10th, 2019 at 05:30 amWhat is Thermodynamics? Thermodynamics is a branch of physics which is concerned with heat and its relationship with another form of energy. William Thomson first coined the term thermodynamics in the year 1749 in the context of heat flow. This branch of physics does not discuss the … Read moreClass 11 Physics: Thermodynamics

Conversion Factors in Physics

conversion factors in physics

Last updated on September 10th, 2019 at 03:22 amIn physics, you are frequently asked to convert between units of measurement. Conversion factors are therefore very important in physics. For example, you may be asked to measure the number of kilometers your school bus travels in an hour and may need to convert the result in … Read moreConversion Factors in Physics
