If the radius of the smaller drop is 1 mm, find the radius of the larger drop. Also find the ratio surface area of the larger drop to the total surface area of all the drops. Equal volumes of two miscible liquids of relative densities 6 and 2 are mixed to form a homogenous mixture. A cube floats on this liquid mixture with half its volume submerged. If instead equal masses of these liquids were mixed, find the fraction of the volume of the cube that would submerge in the mixture. A car travels between places A and B coveringpart of the distance at 40 kmph in 1 hour and the remaining distance at 30 kmph in 2 hours. In the return journey from B to A along a different pathwhich is 3/2 times longer the speed is 75 kmph for the entire journey. Find the average speed of the car for the round trip An electric train is moving at 36 kmph. When its power is turned off, it stops in 20 s. If the train were moving at 54 kmph, find how far ahead of the station should the power be turned off, to halt the train at the station. Assume same uniform retardation in both the cases. |
