The difference between success and failure is your attitude towards
success and the strategies that you employ to achieve it. The difference
between success and failure is only a few minutes or a few hours
everyday. You have to keep on striving for success at every
conceivable opportunity. Never postpone your happiness and zest for
life and work. You should make it a habit to enjoy your profession and
your job all the time. Never be a quitter because a quitter can never be
a winner.
You should always remember that People live not by the reason of any
care they have for themselves but by the love for them that is in other
people. Have only those people for friends and companions who do
their best to bring out the best in you. They will be of unlimited worth
to you. Such persons understand what life means to you and your goal.
They feel for you as you feel for yourselves. They are the ones who
are bound to you in triumph and disaster. They provide a purpose to
live and break the spell of loneliness. A true friend is worth befriending
as he will always stand by you. But before you expect others to be the
right person to be your friend you must also become one.
Be always committed to your cause. Be so engrossed in your work
that you have hardly any time to think of anything else. The great
secret of success is to do whatever you are to do and do it
wholeheartedly. Make yourself the star of your workplace. For this you
must have clear and precise objectives to be achieved within a definite
timeframe. Always respect and value time. Be resultoriented and
keep track of the hours. Respect the time of others as well as your
own. Be always organized and write down everything you want to
accomplish.
Always make an assessment of yesterday's "To Do" list to crosscheck
how realistic it has turned out to be today. This will help you to avoid
or rectify mistakes, if any, in your planning. Keep on visualizing your
goals and lists of the task to be done.
Forever presenting positive ideas to your success.
Yours truly

IIT Delhi to hone marketing
skills at tourism ministry
NEW DELHI: The tourism
ministry has, for the first time,
organised a threeday training
programme for its overseas
officials by experts at the
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)
Delhi in an effort to sharpen their
marketing skills.
Talking about the programme,
Tourism Minister Kumari Selja
said that the ministry's officials will
be trained to promote India
better.
'Our overseas officials who
promote India as an ideal travelling
destination will get this training on
better
and
more
effective
marketing
and
promotion
3
technique from IIT Delhi's
management wing. It will be a
threeday training programme,'
Selja said at the inaugural function
of the ministry's twoday overseas
marketing
meet
here.
'After this, we are planning a
similar training programme for our
domestic officials as well,' Selja
added.
Twenty tourism officials will
attend the first programme.
'This meet is very important,
especially in the light of the global
meltdown and its drastic effects
on tourism. From January to June
this year our foreign tourist arrival
fell by 9.3 percent as compared to
last year,' Selja said.
'However, our efforts to bring
India back on the tourists' map,
the several roadshows in different
countries and promotion of niche
tourism products has ensured that
in June this year there was a
positive growth of 0.2 percent in
the foreign tourist arrival to India,'
she added.
Selja further said that the meet,
which will see overseas tourism
officials and the private sector
here interacting, is bound to
throw up innovative ideas to
attract more travellers to the
country.
More than 500 candidates
refused to get into IITs
Mumbai: To get into Indian
Institutes of Technology (IITs) is
considered as "one of the hardest
nuts to crack", but this year more
than 500 students have refused to
get into IITs after qualifying for the
Joint Entrance Test, conducted by
IITs.
All students have their own
reason to refuse to study in IITs.
Some of them have no confidence
SEPTEMBER 2009
in the new IITs, while some of
them did not get their own choice
of streams. An IIT official said,
"This experience might force HRD
minister Kapil Sibal to do a rethink
on his expansion plans for the
IITs."
In addition to existing seven IITs,
eight IITs that are more new have
been added during the eleventh
fiveyear plan in the country.
After not getting sufficient number
of qualified student for the reserve
categories, IITs have transferred
1100 reservedcategory seats to
the oneyear preparatory course.
The oneyear 'prep course' trains
quota students to bring them up
to the mark.
But this year more than 500
candidates who have refused
admission to IITs are from open
category.
IT BHU soon to become IIT
New Delhi: The Institute of
Technology,
Banaras
Hindu
University (IT BHU) will soon join
the league of Indian Institute of
Technology (IIT).
The Ministry of Human Resource
Development
(MHRD)
has
decided to convert IT BHU into
an IIT.
The decision was conveyed in the
Lok Sabha on Monday by D.
Purandeswari, Minister of State for
HRD.
The decision was conveyed when
she replied to a question on
whether the government has
taken any steps in developing
technology institutions across the
country on the lines of IITs.
For a long time, IT BHU had been
in a process of upgrading itself into
an IIT.
The admission process for
students is already being done
through the IIT Joint Entrance
Examination (IIT JEE).
As per S.N. Upadhyaya, Director,
IT BHU, "The IIT status will not
only improve the infrastructure
and academics of the institute but
XtraEdge for IITJEE
will also get better students and
attract bright faculties".
"With more academic freedom,
the institute will be able to
introduce
interdisciplinary
courses that were not possible
earlier as we were tied up with
the rules and regulations of the
university, to go through various
councils to get a new academic
programme passed. But the status
of IIT will enable us to introduce
new courses without these
limitations"
he
added.
"Appointing faculties will also
become much easier," he avers.
Seven other institutes comprising
of Bengal Engineering College;
Howrah, Cochin University of
Science and Technology; Kochi,
Engineering
and
Technology
Department
of
Jadavpur
University and Zakir Hussain
College of Engineering and
Technology;

IITD to conduct annual
convocation in Aug
New Delhi: The Indian Institute of
Technology, Delhi (IITD) will
award 180 PhD degrees to
students,the highest ever. Scholars
will be awarded their degree at
the convocation taking place next
month on August 8 and 9 in the
campus.
Last year 147 students were
awarded PhD.
IITD has taken several steps to
make the institute as a reputed
research centre in the country and
attract students towards research
programme.
Undergraduate and Postgraduate
students will also be awarded their
degrees during the convocation
IITDelhi to spend Rs.1
crore on tightening security
New Delhi: Trespassing is pass at
the Indian Institute of Technology,
Delhi (IITD) as the institute is all
geared up to tighten their security
levels.
4
IITD is planning to shell out Rs.1
crore on enhancing the level of
security within next few months.
This will include installation of
close circuit television (CCTV)
cameras, introducing electronic
access system in hostels, academic
areas such as library, reading
room
and
canteen.
"The raising number of population
in the campus made us take this
step. This being an educational
campus it was practically not
possible to keep a vigil on all those
entering or leaving the campus.
The new measures will help us in
safeguarding the campus," said
Surendra Prasad, Director, IITD.
The surveillance at all the five
entry gates of the campus by 17
CCTV cameras, will ensure that
the 325 acres of the campus which
is pretty permeable to the people
from the neighbouring villages,
cannot be easily breached.
With the new security measures,
the institute hopes to overcome
the menace of trespassers and
petty thefts at the campus.
Nearly 5,500 students of IITD will
be issued new identification cards
before the end of this year.
"The new cards will act as a single
admit card to the library, hostel
and reading room. Instead of the
current cards that act as their
identity cards as well as the library
card. This will limit the entry and
exit of the outsiders in the
academic areas," said Captain B.N.
Yadav, Security Officer, IITD.
Three
new
MTech
programmes at IIT this year
CHENNAI: Three new M.Tech
programmes
in
Catalysis
Technology, Nuclear Engineering
and Petroleum Engineering will be
offered at IITMadras in the
200910 academic year, director
M S Ananth announced on Friday
Delivering the director's report at
the 46th convocation of the
institute here on Friday, he said a
fiveyear integrated dual degree
programme would also be
introduced in these disciplines.
SEPTEMBER 2009
"IITMadras is establishing a
research park adjacent to its
campus in Chennai, the first of its
kind in the country. For this
purpose, IITM has obtained 11.42
acres of land from the state
government,"
he
added.
Pointing out that the facility was
likely to be inaugurated in
September, professor Ananth said
they hoped to have the prime
minister, the Tamil Nadu chief
minister and Union Minister for
Human Resource Development
(MHRD) Kapil Sibal at the
inaugural
event.
A total of 1,439 students received
degrees 162 were awarded Ph.D,
121 M.S., 354 M.Tech, 83 M.Sc, 62
MBA, 313 B.Tech awards and 172
got
dual
degrees.
Professor Jagdish N Bhagwati of
the department of economics at
Columbia University, who was
conferred the degree of Doctor of
Science (Honoris Causa) by the
institute
on
the
occasion,
delivered the convocation address.
"You should have learnt from your
IIT
education
that
great
universities teach you two things:
creation of knowledge and the
practice of virtue. As scientists,
you must imbibe knowledge and
seek to extend its frontiers. As
part of humanity, you must also
learn to put it to good use," he
said.
In addition to instructing students
on the need for them to
periodically adjust and revise their
knowledge, professor Bhagwati
reminded his audience that each of
them owed his/her success equally
to
their
parents.
"Great
opportunities are open now to
put your knowledge, and your
ingenuity, at the service of India
and
her
poor,"
he
said.
Touching on the problem of
limited availability of qualified
faculty in the higher education
system today, R Chidambaram,
principal scientific advisor to
Government
of
India,
and
chairman, board of governors, IITMadras, said online teaching could
be one way of ensuring quality
XtraEdge for IITJEE
technical
education.
"An
alternative to the required growth
in
brickandmortar
through
expansion and addition is a
massive online education system.
A country like India therefore has
no
choice.
The
National
Programme
on
Technology
Enhanced
Learning
(NPTEL),
liberally funded by the MHRD, is
an opportunity to provide quality
online engineering education," he
said.
Bill Clinton to address IIT
summit in Chicago
Former American President Bill
Clinton will be among many top
leaders to address the seventh
PanIIT Global Conference being
held in Chicago in October.
Kapil Sibal, Indian minister for
human resource development;
Sam Pitroda, Indian Knowledge
Commission chairman; Aneesh
Chopra,
America's
chief
technology officer; and Meera
Shankar, Indian ambassador in the
US, will be among other keynote
speakers at the PanIIT Global
Conference to be held in Chicago
from Oct 911.
According to conference chairman
Ray Mehra, 'Entrepreneurship and
Innovation in a Global Economy' is
the theme of this year's techie
summit. Over 3,000 IITians from
around the world will attend the
annual gathering to be opened by
Sibal. Chopra will deliver the
keynote address.
"We have invited President
Clinton since the goals of his
William J. Clinton Foundation and
the PanIIT conference are the
same. We have common areas like
energy, climate change, health care
and education to work on,'' Mehra
told IANS.
"The president and other global
leaders in their fields will discuss
how we can transform ideas into
action on both sides of the ocean
(in the US and India),'' he said.
Mehra said the PanIIT summit will
take a holistic approach to
problems in areas like health and
energy in India.
"We will discuss how the public
health system (PHS) in India can
be steered with inputs from the
PHS in the US which is under
massive changes now,'' he said.
Mehra said the conference will
also discuss its proposal called
Panch Ratnas submitted to the
Indian
government
to
revolutionize higher education in
the country.
"We presented a white paper
titled PanIIT Panch Ratnas to
President Pratibha Patil last
month, proposing a fivepoint
action plan to make India the
global hub for knowledge creation
and talent development by 2022.
We will debate this in detail in
Chicago,'' he said.
PanIIT's Panch Ratnas include
implementation
of
wholesale
policy reforms in education,
quality control and increase
capacity,
and
'quantum
improvement in faculty service
conditions,
deployment
of
technology for teaching and
collaborative research, and the
establishment of an industryacademia interface, according to
Mehra.
Other prominent speakers at the
summit include James Owens,
chairman and CEO of Caterpillar
Inc., Sharon Oster, dean of the
Yale School of Management, Tulsi
Tanti, chairman of Suzlon Energy,

Prof Raghuram G Rajan of the
University of Chicago and former
chief economist of the IMF. There
are said to be an estimated 35,000
IITians in the US.
Science learning materials
on Net soon
By the end of this year,
elementary school teachers and
students can find an interactive,
experiential
science
learning
programme
developed
in
association with IITMadras, freely
available on the Internet. The
SEPTEMBER 2009
Kuruvila Jacob Initiative for
promoting excellence in school
education, which was set up in
memory of the headmaster of the
Madras Christian College High
School, has been running a
programme
to
develop
multimediaenhanced
science
learning materials for Classes VI to
IX, in partnership with IITMadras
since February 2007.
At the sixth annual function of the
Initiative, launched on Kuruvila
Jacobs birth centenary, IITM
Director M.S. Ananth launched
the latest DVDs of Physics and
Chemistry
material,
and
announced that the whole project
would be ready for a Web launch
by the end of 2009.
From the very beginning, it was
decided to make it available in the
public domain, said Dr. Ananth,
explaining how the modules were
developed
using
the
same
equipment and team which are
putting IITs engineering courses
on YouTube.
About 80 teachers, from 22
schools in the city, were involved
in developing the materials. An
experiment showing how the
electron moves is worth three
lectures in quantum mechanics,
said Dr. Ananth, discussing the
experiential and demonstrative
mode of teaching that the project
has attempted to use in each
module. He believes that distance
education can help fill the gaps in
the Indian school education
system, just as it is starting to do
in higher education as well.
The ratio of teachers to students
is 1:100 or worse, he pointed
out. We are moving from a
gurukulam education at the home
of the guru to what I call
sishyakulam at the homes of the
sishyas, no matter how scattered
they may be, he said, explaining
that the Internet version of these
science modules would allow
students to study from the
comfort of their own homes.
Earlier, historian and writer
Ramachandra Guha delivered the
XtraEdge for IITJEE
keynote address at the function,
on the topic Why India is the
most interesting country in the
world.
He explained that the country was
undergoing
simultaneous
revolutions in at least five areas
industrial,
urban,
national,
democratic and social in a way
that was unprecedented in
international history.
IITK disappointed over
rejection of setting up of
nreactor
In a disappointment to the officials
of IIT Kanpur, the Department of
Atomic Energy has rejected the
college's proposal of setting up of
a small nuclear reactor in its
campus citing security reasons.
However, the officials of IIT
Kanpur said they were trying to
clear the doubts and will try to
convince the Department of
Atomic
Energy
at
the
'International Nuclear Meet' in
November.
Director of IIT Kanpur Prof Sanjay
Govind Dhande said that the
college asked for a permission
from the Department of Atomic
Energy, Mumbai to set up a
nuclear reactor for M.Tech
students, who are doing Nuclear
Engineering.
"We have asked for the
permission from the Department
of Atomic Energy, Mumbai, for a
small reactor in the campus. But
due to security reasons as cited by
the Department it has been
rejected,"
he
said.
He said the college was hopeful of
a positive reply after India signed
the 123 agreement with the US.
According to the college officials,
since the last 35 years the college
has been providing Nuclear
engineering course to 15 students
each year but they were able to
give
only
theory
classes.
"The college has been giving only
theory classes to the students.
Due to the lack of a nuclear
reactor facility in the college, the
students are devoid of any
practical training.
6
He added the Department has not
only cited security problems but
has also mentioned about the lack
of nuclear fuel in the country.

A 5m long cylindrical steel wire with radius 2 103
m is suspended vertically from a rigid support and
carries a bob of mass 100 kg at the other end. If the
bob gets snapped, calculate the change in temperature
of the wire ignoring radiation losses. (For the steel
wire : Young's modulus = 2.1 1011 Pa; Density =
7860 kg/m3; Specific heat = 420 J/kgK). [IIT2001]
Sol. When the mass of 100 kg is attached, the string is
under tension and hence in the deformed state.
Therefore it has potential energy (U) which is given
by the formula.

A sample of hard water contains 96 ppm of SO42 and
183 ppm of HCO3, with Ca2+ as the only cation.
How many moles of CaO will be required to remove
HCO3 from 1000 kg of this water ? If 1000 kg of this
water is treated with the amount of CaO calculated
above, what will be concentration (in ppm) of
residual Ca2+ ions? (Assume CaCO3 to be completely
insoluble in water.) If the Ca2+ ions in one litre of the
treated water are completely exchanged with
hydrogen ions, what will be its pH ? (One ppm means
one part of the substance in one million part of water,

Sol. In 106g (= 1000 kg) of the given hard water, we will
have
Mass of SO42 ions = 96 g
Mass of HCO3 ions = 183 g
96 g
= 1 mol

When current flows in the circuit in steady state,
there is a power loss through the resistor. Also since
the rod is rotating in a vertical plane, work needs to
be done to keep it at constant angular speed.
Power loss due to current I will be
Amount of HCO3 ions =
= 3 mol
61g mol 1
These ions are present as CaSO4 and Ca(HCO3)2.
Hence,
Amount of Ca+ ions = (1 + 1.5) mol = 2.5 mol.
The addition of CaO causes the following reaction :
CaO + Ca(HCO3)2 2CaCO3 + H2O
To remove 1.5 mol of Ca(HCO3)2, 1.5 mol of CaO
will be required in the treated water. After this, the
solution contains only CaSO4. Thus, 1 mol of Ca2+
ions will be present in 106 g of water. Hence its
concentration will be 40 ppm.
Molarity of Ca2+ ions in the treated water will be 103
mol L1. If the Ca2+ ions are exchanged by H+ ions,
then
Molarity of H+ in the treated water = 2 103 M.
Thus, pH = log (2 103) = 2.7

The sodium salt of a carboxylic acid, A, was
produced by passing a gas, B, into an aqueous
solution of caustic alkali at an elevated temperature
and pressure. A, on heating in presence of sodium
hydroxide followed by treatment with sulphuric acid
gave a dibasic acid, C.A sample of 0.4 g of acid C, on
combustion gave 0.08 g of water and 0.39g of carbon
dioxide. The silver salt of the acid weighing 1.0 g on
ignition yielded 0.71 g of silver as residue. Identify
A, B and C.
[IIT 1990]
Sol. From the given data, we can determine the molar
mass of dicarboxylic acid. Since on ignition, 2 mol of
Ag ( 215.8 g Ag) will be left per mole of
dicarboxylic acid, we have
1.0 g of silver of dicarboxylic acid
215.8 g Ag
0.71 g Ag
= 303.94 g of silver salt of dicarboxylic acid.
Hence, Macid = 303.94 g mol1 2MAg + 2MH
= 303.94 g mol1 215.8 g mol1 + 2 g mol1
= 90.14 g mol1
Now, since the molar mass of two carboxylic groups
(2COOH) is 90 g mol1, the dicarboxylic acid (C) is
oxalic acid (HCOOH COOH). The nature of
dicarboxylic acid may be confirmed from the
combustion data.

Since air temperature is a powerful component of
climate, there will be unavoidable climate changes
in the future. Some climate changes involve
extreme weather disturbances such as more severe
hurricanes and longer droughts. There will be an
increased precipitation of snow and rain during
winter. The faster melting of snow during the

Experts Solution for Question asked by IITJEE Aspirants
A ball with mass M/2 filled with gas (whose mass is
M/2) is standing on a frictionless table. A bullet of
mass m = M/4 and velocity v0 x penetrates the ball,
and is rests inside at t = 0 (see figure). Assume that
the amount of gas emitted during the collision can be
neglected. The compressed gas is emitted at a
constant velocity v0/2 relative to the ball and at an
dM
even rate
= K(K is a positive constant).

The final velocity of the ball is determined according
to the time that passes until the force applied by the
emitted gas stops, or when the mass of the gas in the

ball is zero, 0 =

1. What is the velocity of the ball after the collision
with the bullet ?
2. Find the velocity of the ball v(t) as a function of
time. As same that the emission of gas starts at t = 0.
What is the final velocity of the ball ?
Note : The penetration of the bullet into the ball is
the horizontal plane.
Sol. 1. From the law of conservation of linear
momentum, we can write :
(m + M)v1 = mv0
we define v1 as the velocity of M + m (the ball, bullet
and all the gas).

(iii) What is the oscillation amplitude of (x2 x1) ?
Sol. The motion of the system of the two bodies can be
conveniently described by using the center of mass
frame of reference. The centre of mass moves in a
straight line with constant velocity, due to the
conservation of linear momentum. In the centre of
mass frame the two bodies perform simple harmonic
oscillations. Denoting the position of the masses m1
and m2 by x1 and x2, respectively, we can express the
distance between the masses as x2 x1. The change in
the length of the spring is then x = x2 x1 a.
(i) The forces applied by the spring on the two
systems are :

The signs are used according to the position of the

Eq. (2) by m1, and subtracting Eq. (1) from Eq. (2)
we have
m1m2( &x& 2 &x&1 ) = k(m1 + m2)x
...(3)
Since x = x2 x1 a, we have x& = x& 2 x& 1 . And
&x& = &x& 2 &x&1 . Therefore,
m1m2 &x& = k(m1 + m2)x

Where a force F = 2 Fmin is applied, the rod begins to
accelerate rightwards and due to its motion, an emf is
induced in it. According to Fleming's right hand rule
this induced emf tries to flow an anticlockwise
current in the circuit. It means induced emf reinforces
emf of the battery. Hence, leftward force on rod
increases or retarding force increases. Therefore,
acceleration of the rod decreases and it becomes zero
or velocity becomes constant when resultant force on
the rod become zero.

A photon is a particle of light {wave packet}.
Large objects have very short wavelengths
when moving and thus can not be observed
behaving as a wave. (DeBroglie Waves)
All electromagnetic waves originate from
accelerating charged particles.
The frequency of a light wave determines its
energy (E = hf).
The lowest energy state of a atom is called the
ground state.
Increasing light frequency increases the kinetic
energy of the emitted photoelectrons.
As the threshold frequency increase for a
photocell (photo emissive material) the work
function also increases.
Increasing light intensity increases the number
of emitted photoelectrons but not their KE.
Centripetal force and centripetal acceleration
vectors are toward the center of the circlewhile the velocity vector is tangent to the

Review of Concepts :
Electric current is the rate of transfer of charge
through a certain surface.
The direction of electric current is as that of flow
of positive charge.
If a charge q cross an area in time t, then the
average current = q/t
Its unit is C/s or ampere.
Electric current has direction as well as
magnitude but it is a scalar quantity.
Electric current obeys simple law of algebra.

I1
A source of emf delivers power I into a circuit
when the current I runs through the source from
to +. The energy is converted from chemical
energy in a battery, from mechanical energy in a
generator, or whatever. In this case the source has
a positive power output to the circuit or,
equivalently, a negative power input to the
source.
I5
A source of emf power I from a circuit that is,
it has a negative power output, or, equivalently, a
positive power inputwhen currents passes
through the source in the direction from + to
.This occurs in charging a storage battery, when
electrical energy is converted back to chemical
energy. In this case the source has a negative
power output to the circuit or, equivalently, a
positive power input to the source.
No matter what the direction of the current
through a resistor, It removes energy from a
circuit at a rate given by VI = I2R = V2/R, where
V is the potential difference across the resistor.
There is also a positive power input to the internal
resistance r of a source, irrespective of the
direction of the current. The internal resistance
always removes energy from the circuit,
converting it into heat at a rate I2r.
You may need to calculated the total energy
delivered to or extracted from a circuit element in
a given amount of time. If integral is just the
product of power and elapsed time.
Step 4 Evaluate your answer : Check your results,
including a check that energy is conserved. This
conservation can be expressed in either of two forms:
net power input = net power output or the
algebraic sum of the power inputs to the circuit
elements is zero.

Step 2 Set up the problem using the following steps:
Problem solving st. : Kirchhoffs Rules :
Step 1 Identify the relevant concepts : Kirchhoffs
rules are important tools for analyzing any circuit
more complicated than a single loop.
Step 2 Set up the problem using the following steps :
Draw a large circuit diagram so you have plenty
of room for labels. Label all quantities, known
and unknown, including an assumed direction for
each unknown current and emf. Often you will
not know in advance the actual direction of an
unknown current or emf, but this does not matter.
If the the actual direction of a particular quantity
is opposite to your assumption, the result will
come out with a negative sign. If you are
Kirchhoffs rules correctly, they will give you the
directions as well as the magnitudes of unknown
currents and emfs.
When you label currents, it is usually best to use
the junction rule immediately to express the
currents of as few quantities as possible. For
example, fig (a) shows a circuit correctly labeled;
fig. (b) shows the same circuit, relabeled by
applying the junction rule to point a to eliminate I3.
Make a drawing of the resistor network.

direction.
Travel around the loop in the designated
direction, adding potential differences as you
cross them. Remember that a positive potential
and a negative potential difference corresponds to
a decrease in potential. An emf is counted as
positive when you traverse it from () to (+), and
negative when you go from (+) to (). An IR term
is negative if you travel through the resistor in the
same direction as the assumed current and
positive if you pass it in the opposite direction.
Figure. summarizes these sign conventions. In
each part of the figure travel is the direction
that we imagine going around a loop while using
Kirchhoffs loop law, not necessary the direction
of current.
Equate the sum is Step 2 to zero.
If necessary, choose another loop to get a
different relation among the unknowns, and
continue until you have as many independent
equations as unknowns or until every circuit
element has been included in a at least one of the
chosen loops.
Solve the equations simultaneously to determine
the unknowns. This step involves algebra, not
physics, but it can be fairly complex. Be careful
with algebraic manipulations; one sign error will
prove fatal to the entire solution.
You can use this same bookkeeping system to
find the potential Vab of any point a with respect to
any other point b. Start at b and add the potential
changes you encounter in going from b to a, using the
same sign rules as in Step 2. The algebraic sum of the
these changes is vab = Va Vb.
Step 4 Evaluate your answer : Check all the step in
your algebra. A useful strategy is to consider a loop
other than the ones you used to solve the problem; if
the sum of potential drops around this loop is not
zero, you made an error somewhere in your
calculations. As always, ask yourself whether is

Black HolesThe Most Efficient
Engines in the Universe
The scientists have just found the most energyefficient engines in the universe. Black holes,
whirling super dense centres of galaxies that suck
in nearly everything. Jets of energy spurting out of
older ultraefficient black holes also seem to be
playing a crucial role as zoning police in large
galaxies preventing to many stars from sprouting.
This explains why there are fewer burgeoning
galaxies chock full of stars than previously
expected.
For the first time, the scientists have measured
both the mas of hot gas that is being sucked into
nine older black holes and the unseen super speedy
jets of high energy particles split out, which
essentially form a cosmic engine. Then they determined a rate of how efficient these older black hole
engines are and were awestruck. These black
holes are 25 times more efficient than anything man
has built, with nuclear power being the most
efficient of manmade efforts, said the research's
lead author, Professor Steve Allen of Stanford
University.

This skeleton consists of twelve wires. Let the

because the resistance of each wire is the same. At B,
D and E, the current i/3 is divided into two equal
parts each having magnitude i/6. At the corners C, F
and H, the currents again combine to give currents,
each of magnitude i/3 along CG, FG and HG
respectively. At corner G, all these currents combine
so that the current leaving at G is i.

Black holes are the most fuelefficient
engines in the universe.
The results were surprising because the types of
black holes studied were older, less powerful and
generally considered boring, scientists said. But
they ended up being more efficient than originally
thought, possibly as efficient as their younger,
brighter and more potent black hole siblings called
quasars. One way the scientists measured the
efficiency of black holes was by looking at the jets
of high energy spewed out.

Circular Motion, Rotational Motion
KEY CONCEPTS & PROBLEM SOLVING STRATEGY
Without centripetal force, a body can not move on a
circular path. Earth gets this force from the
gravitational attraction between earth and sun;
electron moves in circular path due to electrostatic
attraction between it and nucleus. A cyclic or car
while taking turn, gets the centripetal force from the
friction between road and type. To create this force,
the vehicle tilts itself towards the centre. If it makes
angle with the vertical in tilted position then than
= v2/rg. where v is its velocity and r is the radius of
the path. In order to avoid skidding (or slipping), the
angle of tilt with vertical should be less than angle
of friction . i.e.
tan < tan
Circular Motion :
When a particle moves on a circular path with
uniform speed, its is said to execute a uniform
circular motion.

angular displacements of the body. If the radial line

Motion in a vertical circle : When a body tied at one
end of a string is revolved in a vertical circle, it has
different speed at different points of the circular path.
Therefore, the centripetal force and tension in the
string change continuously. At the highest point A of

with uniform speed v in a circle of radius r it is acted
upon by an acceleration v2/r in the direction of centre.
It is called centripetal acceleration. The acceleration
has a fixed magnitude but its direction is
continuously changing. It is always directed towards
the centre of the circle.

This minimum speed is called critical speed (vc). If
the speed at A is less than this value, the particle will
not reach up to the highest point. To reach with this

the conservation laws viz.

Theorem of parallel axes : According to this
theorem, the moment of inertia I of a body about any
axis is equal to its moment of inertia about a parallel
axis through centre of mass IG plus Ma2 where M is
the mass of the body and a is the perpendicular
distance between the axes, i.e., I = IG + Ma2
Theorem of perpendicular axes : According to this
theorem, the moment of inertia I of the body about a
perpendicular axis is equal to the sum of moment of
inertia of the body about two axes right angles to
each other in the plane of the body and intersecting at
a point where the perpendicular axis passes, i.e.,
I = Ix + Iy

Motion of centre of mass :

at position vectors r1 and r2 respectively with respect
to origin. Now the position vector r of the centre of
mass is given by
...(1)
(m1 + m2)r = m1r1 + m2r2
Thus, the product of the total mass of the system and
position vector of the centre of mass is equal to the
sum of the products of the individual masses and
their respective position vectors. Hence

Moment of inertia and radius of gyration :
Moment of Inertia : The moment of inertia of a
body about an axis is defined as the sum of the
products of the masses of the particles constituting
the body and the square of their respective distance
from the axis.
Radius of Gyration : If we consider that the whole
mass of the body is concentrated at a distance K from
the axis of rotation, then moment of inertia I can be
expressed as
I = MK2
where M is the total mass of the body and K is the
radius of gyration. Thus the quantity whose square
when multiplied by the total mass of the body gives
the moment of inertia of the body about that axis is
known as radius of gyration.

In case of rotating body about an axis, the sum of the

particles about the axis of rotation is called angular
momentum about the axis.
Step1 : Identify the relevant concepts : The equation
= Iz is useful whenever torques act on a rigid
bodythat is, whenever forces act on a rigid body in
such a way as to change the state of the bodys
rotation.
In some cases you may be able to use an energy
approach instead. However, if the target variable is a
force, a torque, an acceleration, an angular
acceleration, or an elapsed time, the approach using
= I2 is almost always the most efficient one.
Step2 : Setup the problem using the following steps:
Draw a sketch of the situation and select the body
or bodies to be analyzed.
For each body, draw a freebody diagram
isolating the body and including all the forces
(and only those forces) that act on the body,
including its weight. Label unknown quantities
with algebraic symbols. A new consideration is
that you must show the shape of the body
accurately, including all dimensions and angles
you will need for torque calculations.
Choose coordinate axes for each body and
indicate a positive sense of rotation for each
rotating body. If there is a linear acceleration, its
usually simplest to pick a positive axis in its
direction. If you know the sense of z in advance,
picking it as the positive sense of rotation
simplifies the calculations. When you represent a
force in terms of its components, cross out the
original force to avoid including it twice.
Step3 : Execute the solution as follows :
For each body in the problem, decide whether it
under goes translational motion, rotational
motion, or both. Depending on the behavior of the
r
body in question, apply F = m a , z = Iz, or
both to the body. Be careful to write separate
equations of motion for each body.
There may be geometrical relations between the
motions of two or more bodies, as with a string
that unwinds from a pulley while turning it or a
wheel that rolls without slipping. Express these
relations in algebraic form, usually as relations
between two linear accelerations or between a
linear acceleration and an angular acceleration.
Check that the number of equations matches the
number of unknown quantities. Then solve the
equations to find the target variable(s).
Step4 : Evaluate your answer : Check that the
algebraic signs of your results make sense. As an
example, suppose the problem is about a spool of
thread. If you are pulling thread off the spool, your
answers should not tell you that the spool is turning
in the direction the results for special cases or
intuitive expectations. Ask yourself : Does this result
make sense ?

Problem Solving Strategy: Equilibrium of a Rigid Body
Step1 : Identify the relevant concepts : The first and
second conditions for equilibrium are useful
whenever there is a rigid body that is not rotating and
not accelerating in space.
Step2 : Set up the problem using the following steps:
Draw a sketch of the physical situation, including
dimensions, and select the body in equilibrium to
be analyzed.
Draw a freebody diagram showing the forces
acting on the selected body and no others. Do not
include forces exerted by this body on other
bodies. Be careful to show correctly the point at
which each force acts; this is crucial for correct
torque calculations. You can't represent a rigid
body as a point.
Choose coordinate axes and specify a positive
sense of rotation for torques. Represent forces in
terms of their components with respect to the axes
you have chosen; when you do this, cross out the
original force so that you don't included it twice.
In choosing a point to compute torques, note that
if a force has a line of action that goes through a
particular point, the torque of the force with
respect to that point is zero. You can often
eliminate unknown forces or components from
the torque equation by a clever choice of point for
your calculation. The body doesn't actually have
to be pivoted about an axis through the chosen
point.
Step3 : Execute the solution as follows :
Write equations expressing the equilibrium
conditions. Remember that Fx = 0, Fy = 0, and
z = 0 are always separate equations; never add
xand ycomponents in a single equation. Also
remember that when a force is represented in term
of its components, you can compute the torque of
that force by finding the torque of each
component separately, each with its appropriate
lever arm and sign, and adding the results. This is
often easier than determining the lever arm of the
original force.
You always need as many equations as you have
unknowns. Depending on the number of
unknowns, you may need to compute torques

A useful laboratory procedure for synthesizing

The ozonelayer is showing signs of recoring, but it
is unlikely to stabilise at pre1980 levels. The
depletion of the earth's protective ozonelayer is
caused by the chemical action of chlorine and
bromine
released
by
manmade
chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are used in
aerosol sprays and cooling equipments.
Ozonedepleting chemicals were banned by the
1987 Montreal Protocol which has now been
ratified by 180 nations. Ozonelayer is getting
better due to Montreal Protocol.
Dr. Weatherhead and Dr. Signe Bech Anderson of
the Danish Meteorological Institute in Copenhagen
analysed data from satellites and ground stations
and information from 14 modelling studies. They
found that ozone levels have stabilised or increased
slightly in the last 10 years. The full recovery is still
decades away.

Process of Ozonelayer Healing
The research team leader Dr. S. B. Anderson said,
"The depletion has been most severe at the poles
and to a lesser extent at midlatitudes covering
bands of North America, South America and
Europe." Shifting temperatrues, green house gases,
nitrous oxide and atmospheric dynamics, which can
influence ozonelevels, are going to change inthe
future. Volcanic activities on the Earth can also
have an impact. The 1993 Mount Pinatubo eruption
in the Phillippines caLI sed ozonelevels to backslide
for several years.

Acidcatalyzed hydrolysis of 1,2epoxyclopentane
yields a trans diol, trans1,2cyclopentanediol. Water
acting as a nucleophile attacks the protonated epoxide
from the side opposite the epoxide group. The carbon
atom being attacked undergoes an inversion of
configuration. We show here only one carbon atom
being attacked. Attack at the other carbon atom of
this symmetrical system is equally likely and
produces the enantiomeric form of trans1,2cyclopentanediol :

Oxygen :
Oxygen occurs as two nonmetallic forms, dioxygen
O2 and ozone O3. Dioxygen O2 is stable as a diatomic
molecule, which accounts for it being a gas. The
bonding in the O2 molecules is not as simple as it
might at first appear. If the molecule had two
covalent bonds, then all electron would be paired and
the molecule should be diamagnetic.
O + O
CH CH
Singlet dioxygen may be involved in biological
oxidations.
Ozone O3 is the triatomic allotrope of oxygen. It is
unstable, and decomposes to O2. The structure of O3
is angular, with an O O O bond angle of 11648.
Both O O bond lengths are 1.28 , which is
intermediate between a single bond (1.48 in H2O2)
and a double bond (1.21 in O2). The older valence
bond representation as resonance hybrid now seldom
used. The structure is described as the central O atom
using sp2 hybrid orbitals to bond to the terminal O
atoms. The central atom has one lone pair, and the
terminal O atoms have two lone pairs. This leaves
four electrons for bonding. The pz atomic orbitals
from the three atoms form three delocalized
molecular orbitals covering all three atoms. One MO
is bonding, one nonbonding, and one antibonding.
The four electron fill the bonding and nonbonding
MOs and thus contribute one delocalized bond to
the molecule in addition to the two bonds. Thus the
bond order is 1.5, and the system is described as a
fourelectron threecentre bond.
Trioxides of Sulphur :
The only important trioxide in this group, SO3, is
obtained by reaction of sulfur dioxide with molecular
oxygen, a reaction that is thermodynamically very
favorable but extremely slow in the absence of a
catalyst. Platinum sponge, V2O5, and NO serve as
catalysts under various conditions. Sulfur trioxide
reacts vigorously with water to form sulfuric acid.
Commercially, for practical reasons, SO3 is absorbed
in concentrated sulfuric acid, to give oleum, which is
then diluted. Sulfur trioxide is used as such for
preparing sulfonated oils and alkyl arenesulfonate
detergents. It is also a powerful but generally
indiscriminate oxidizing agent; however, it will
selectively oxidize pentachlorotoluene and similar
compounds to the alcohol.
The free molecule, in the gas phase, has a planar,
triangular structure that may be considered to be a
or O = O
Dioxygen is paramaginetic and therefore contains
unpaired electrons. The explanation of this
phenomenon was one of the early successes of the
molecular orbital theory.
Liquid dioxygen is pale blue in colour, and the solid
is also blue. The colour arises from electronic
transitions which excite the ground state (a triplet
state) to a singlet state. This transition is 'forbidden'
in gaseous dioxygen. In liquid or solid dioxygen a
single photon may collide with two molecules
simultaneously and promote both to excited states,
absorbing red yellow green light, so O2 appears
blue. The origin of the excited singlet states in O2 lies
in the arrangement of electrons in the antibonding
*2py and *2pz molecular orbitals, and is shown
below.

Liquid SO3, which is a monomertrimer mixture,

Compounds of Sulphur and Nitrogen :
A number of ring and chain compounds containing S
and N exist. The elements N and S are diagonally
related in the periodic table, and have similar charge
densities. Their electronegativities are close (N 3.0, S
2.5) so covalent bonding is expected. The compounds
formed have unusual structures which cannot be
explained by the usual bonding theories.
Attempting to work out oxidation states is unhelpful
or misleading.
The best known is tetrasulphur tetranitride S4N4, and
this is starting point for many other S N
compounds. S4N4 may be made as follows :
S4N4 + 6NaOH + 3H2O Na2S2O3 + 2Na2SO3 + 4NH3
If S4N4 is treated with Ag2F in CCl4 solution then
S4N4F4 is formed. This has an eightmembered S N
ring, with the F atoms bonded to S. This results from
breaking the S S bonds across the ring. Similarly
the formation of adducts such as S4N4.BF3 or
S4N4.SbF5 (in which the extra group is bonded to N)
breaks the S S bonds and increases the mean S N
distance from 1.62 to 1.68 . This is presumably
because the electron attracting power of BF3 or SbF5
withdraws some of the electron density.
Reduction of S4N4 with SNCl2 in MeOH gives
tetrasulphur tetraimide S4(NH4). Several imides can
be made by reacting S4N4 with S, or S2Cl2 with NH3.
These imides are related to an S8 ring in which one or
more S atoms have been replaced by imide NH
groups, for example in S7NH, S6(NH)2, S5(NH)3 and
S4(NH)4.

S4N4 is a solid, m.p. 178C, It is thermochromic, that
is it changes colour with temperature. At liquid
nitorgen temperatures it is almost colourless, but at
room temperature it is orangeyellow, and at 100C it
is red. It is stable in air, but may detonate with shock,
grinding or sudden heating. The structure is a
heterocylic ring. This is cradle shaped and differs
structurally from the S8 ring, which is crown shaped.
The Xray structure shows that the average S N
bond length is 1.62 . Since the sum of the covalent
radii for S and N is 1.78 , the S N bonds seem to
have some double bond character. The fact that the
bonds are of equal length suggest that this is
delocalized. The S.....S distances at the top and
bottom of the cradle are 2.58 . The van der waals
(nonbonded) distance S ... S is 3.30 , and the single
bond distance S S is 2.08 .
This indicates weak S S bonding, and S4N4 is thus a
cage structure.
Many different sizes of rings exist, for example
cycloS2N2, cycloS4N2, cycloS4N3Cl, cycloS3N3Cl3. In addition bicyclo compounds S11N2,
S15N2, S16N2,S17N2 and S19N2 are known. The last
four may be regarded as two heterocyclic S7N ring,
with the N atoms joined through a chain of 1 5S
atoms.
S4N4 is very slowly hydrolysed by water, but reacts
rapidly with warm NaOH with the breakup of the
ring:

S
In view of this affinity of S in SO3 for electrons, it is
not surprising that SO3 functions as a fairly strong
Lewis acid toward the bases that it does not
preferentially oxidize. Thus the trioxide gives
crystalline complexes with pyridine, trimethylamine,
or dioxane, which can be used, like SO3 itself, as
sulfonating agents for organic compounds.
The structure of solid SO3 is complex. At least three
welldefined phase are known. Sulfur trioxide,
formed by condensation of vapors at 80C or
below, is an icelike solid containing cyclic trimers
with structure.

If S4N4 is vaporized under reduced pressure and
passed through silver wool, then disulphur dinitrogen
S2N2 is formed.
S4N4 + 4Ag S2N2 + 2Ag2S + N2
S2N2 is a crystalline solid, which is insoluble in water
but soluble in many organic solvents. It explodes
with shock or heat. The structure is cyclic and the
four atoms are very nearly square planar.
The most important reaction of S2N2 is the slow
polymerization of the solid or vapour to form
polythiazyl (SN)x. This is a bronze coloured shiny
solid that looks like a metal. It conducts electricity
and conductivity increases as the temperature
decreases, which is typical of a metal. It becomes a
superconductor at 0.26 K. The crystal structure shows
that the fourmembered rings in S2N2 have opened
and polymerized into a long chain polymer. The
atoms have a zigzag arrangement, and the chain is
almost flat. Conductivity is much greater along the
chains than in other directions, and so the polymer
behaves as a onedimensional metal. The resistivity is
quite high at room temperature.
Ortho and Para Hydrogen :
The hydrogen molecule H2 exists in two different
forms known as ortho and para hydrogen. The
nucleus of an atom has nuclear spin, in a similar way
to electrons having a spin. In the H2 molecule, the
two nuclei may be spinning in either the same
direction, or in opposite directions. This gives rise to
spin isomerism, that is two different forms of H2 may
exist. These are called ortho and para hydrogen. Spin
isomerism is also found in other symmetrical
molecules whose nuclei have spin momenta, e.g. D2,
N2, F2, Cl2. There are considerable differences
between the physical properties (e.g. boiling points,
specific heats and thermal conductivities) of the ortho
and para forms, because of differences in their
internal energy. There are also difference in the band
spectra of the ortho and para forms of H2.
The para form has the lower energy, and at absolute
zero the gas contains 100% of the para form. As the
temperature is raised, some of the para form changes
into the ortho form. At high temperatures the gas
contains about 75% ortho hydrogen.
Para hydrogen is usually prepared by passing a
mixture of the two forms of hydrogen through a tube
packed with charcoal cooled to liquid air
temperature. Para hydrogen prepared in this way can
be kept for weeks at room temperature in a glass
vessel, because the orthopara conversion is slow in
the absence of catalysts. Suitable catalysts include
activated charcoal, atomic hydrogen, metals such as
Fe, Ni, Pt and W and paramagnetic substances or ions
(which contain unpaired electrons) such as O2, NO,
NO2, Co2+ and Cr2O3.

A green coloured metallic chloride (A), when treated
with NaOH and H2O2, gives a yellow solution due to
the formation of compound (B). The colour of this
solution changes to orange when dil. H2SO4 is added
to it. It is due to the formation of compound (C).
When KCl is heated along with (C) in presence of
conc H2SO4, a red volatile liquid (D) is produced.
The compound (C) when reacted with NH4Cl gives
compound (E) which decomposes on heating giving a
colourless gas (F), water and a green residue (G).
When Mg is burnt in the presence of gas (F), a white
solid (H) is produced. The latter on hydrolysis forms
a gas (I) which give white fumes with HCl gas.

In the late 18th century, James Stirling, a Scottish
mathematician, developed an approximation for factorials
using the transcendental numbers 'Pi' and 'e':
n! (2 n)1/2 (n/e)n
The most famous formula for calculating Pi is Machin's
formula:
/4 = 4 arctan(1/5) arctan(1/239)
This formula, and similar ones, were used to push the
accuracy of approximations to Pi to over 500 decimal
places by the early 18th century (this was all hand
calculation!).
Interestingly, there are no occurrences of the sequence
123456 in the first million digits of Pi.  posted by George

Years ago, to puzzle his friends, a
scientist gave one of four containers
containing
blue
and/or
yellow
marbles to each of the friends; Tom,
Dick, Harry, and Sally.
There were 3 marbles in each
container, and the number of blue
marbles was different in each one.
There was a piece of paper in each
container telling which color marbles
were in that container, but the papers
had been mixed up and were ALL in
the wrong containers.
He then told all of his friends to take
2 marbles out of their container, read
the label, and then tell him the color
of the third marble.
So Tom took two blue marbles out of
his container and looked at the label.
He was able to tell the color of the
third
marble
immediately.
Dick took 1 blue marble and 1 yellow
marble from his container. After
looking at his label he was able to tell
the color of his remaining marble.
Harry took 2 yellow marbles from his
container. He looked at the label in
his container, but could not tell what
color the remaining marble was.
Sally, without even looking at her
marbles or her label, was able to tell
the scientist what color her marbles
were. Can you tell what color marbles
Sally had? Can you also tell what
color marbles the others had, and
what label was in each of their

as 1 6a 9a2 + 7 < 8 24a + 18a2 + 7

Birth of New Red Spot is the
Thunderstorm on Jupiter
During the past few months, the astronomers have
tracked an emerging second red spot on Jupiter, a
growing rival about onehalf the diameter of the
planet's Great Red Spot. The Hubble Space
Telescope has snapped the first detailed pictures of
what some observers now call Red Spot Jr.

of a building 10m high on which a flagstaff is

top of a mountain behind the building are along the

48 m he observes that now the top of the flagstaff and
the top of the mountain are along the same straight
line. If at both the locations, the flagstaff subtends the
same angle at the mans eye, find the height of
mountain.

Astronomers at the Space Telescope Science
Institute in Boltimore said this was the first time
scientists have witnessed the birth of these huge
oval spots, presumably a convective phenomenon
like a powerful thunderstorm. The Great spot was
already present when the observers first looked
with telescope at the planet some 400 years ago.
Red Spot Jr. appeared in nearinfrared images to be
as bright in Jupiter's cloudy atmosphere as its big
companion. The size of Red Spot Jr. is half the size
of its big companion. The scientists say the new
storm might rise higher above the main cloud deck
than the older spot.

In a New Light: Jupiter, with its second
red spot, in a picture released by NASA.
Current observations, including Hubble pictures
taken on May 12 and 18, show that the smaller red
spot is drifting eastward in the Jovian Southern
hemisphere and the Great Red Spot is moving
westward. They should pass one another in early
July. The pictures of the Red Spots are contrastenhanced images taken in visible light and at nearinfrared wave lengths. But the red spots, new and
old, are really red.

PROBABILITY
Mathematics Fundamentals
Probability :
In a random experiment, let S be the sample space
and E S, then E is an event.
The probability of occurrence of event E is defined as
Some Definitions :
Experiment : A operation which can produce some
well defined outcomes is known as an experiment.
Random experiment : If in each trail of an
experiment conducted under identical conditions, the
outcome is not unique, then such an experiment is
called a random experiment.
Sample space : The set of all possible outcomes in
an experiment is called a sample space. For example,
in a throw of dice, the sample space is {1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
6}. Each element of a sample space is called a sample
point.
Event :
An event is a subset of a sample space.
Simple event : An event containing only a single
sample point is called an elementary or simple event.
Events other than elementary are called composite or
compound or mixed events.
For example, in a single toss of coin, the event of
getting a head is a simple event.
Here S = {H, T} and E = {H}
In a simultaneous toss of two coins, the event of
getting at least one head is a compound event.
Here S = {HH, HT, TH, TT} and E = {HH, HT, TH}
Equally likely events : The given events are said to
be equally likely, if none of them is expected to occur
in preference to the other.
Mutually exclusive events : If two or more events
have no point in common, the events are said to be
mutually exclusive. Thus E1 and E2 are mutually
exclusive in E1 E2 = .
The events which are not mutually exclusive are
known as compatible events.
Exhaustive events : A set of events is said to be
totally exhaustive (simply exhaustive), if no event out
side this set occurs and at least one of these event
must happen as a result of an experiment.
Independent and dependent events : If there are
events in which the occurrence of one does not
depend upon the occurrence of the other, such events
are known as independent events. On the other hand,
if occurrence of one depend upon other, such events
are known as dependent events.

Notations :
Let A and B be two events, then
A B or A + B stands for the occurrence of at
least one of A and B.
A B or AB stands for the simultaneous
occurrence of A and B.
A B stands for the nonoccurrence of both A
and B.
A B stands for "the occurrence of A implies
occurrence of B".
Random variable :
A random variable is a real valued function whose
domain is the sample space of a random experiment.
Bays rule :
Let (Hj) be mutually exclusive events such that
P(Hj) > 0 for j = 1, 2, ..... n and S =

happening of the remaining
(B) Odd in favour and odds against an event : As a
result of an experiment if a of the outcomes are
favourable to an event E and b of the outcomes are
against it, then we say that odds are a to b in favour
of E or odds are b to a against E.
Thus odds in favour of an event E

Some important remark about coins, dice and playing
cards :
Coins : A coin has a head side and a tail side. If
an experiment consists of more than a coin, then
coins are considered to be distinct if not otherwise
stated.
P(A) + P( A ) = 1
0 P(A) 1
(D)
P() = 0
P(S) = 1
If S = {A1, A2, ..... An}, then
P(A1) + P(A2) + .... + P(An) = 1
If the probability of happening of an event in one
trial be p, then the probability of successive
happening of that event in r trials is pr.
If A and B are mutually exclusive events, then
P(A B) = P(A) + P(B) or
P(A + B) = P(A) + P(B)
If A and B are any two events, then
Dice : A die (cubical) has six faces marked 1, 2,
3, 4, 5, 6. We may have tetrahedral (having four
faces 1, 2, 3, 4,) or pentagonal (having five faces
1, 2, 3, 4, 5) die. As in the case of coins, If we
have more than one die, then all dice are
considered to be distinct if not otherwise stated.
Playing cards : A pack of playing cards usually
has 52 cards. There are 4 suits (Spade, Heart,
Diamond and Club) each having 13 cards. There
are two colours red (Heart and Diamond) and
black (Spade and Club) each having 26 cards.
P(A B) = P(A) + P(B) P(A B) or
P(A + B) = P(A) + P(B) P(AB)
If A and B are two independent events, then
In thirteen cards of each suit, there are 3 face cards or
coart card namely king, queen and jack. So there are
in all 12 face cards (4 kings, 4 queens and 4 jacks).
Also there are 16 honour cards, 4 of each suit namely
ace, king, queen and jack.

If we put x = 1 in (1), we get

Where n is any index (positive or negative)
If we put x = 1 and replace a by a, we get

Adding and subtracting (2) and (3), and then
dividing by 2, we get
This expansion is valid for x < 1 and first term
unity.
When x is small compared with 1, we see that the
terms finally get smaller and smaller. If x is very
small compared with 1, we take 1 as a first
approximation to the value of (1 + x)n or 1 + nx as
a second approximation.

where P refers to pressure, v for speed and h for
height of the fluid 1 and 2 are used for different
points in the system.
The equation of continuity expresses the law of
conservation of mass in a fluid dynamics. If a1, v1 and
be the area of cross section of the tube, velocity of
flow of the fluid particles and density of fluid
respectively at one point and a2, v2 and the similar
quantities at another point, then according to
continuity equation
a1v1 = a2v2
therefore, the equation of continuity states that as the
area of crosssection of the tube of flow becomes
larger, the liquid speed becomes smaller and vice
versa.

The energy of a body is defined as the capacity of
doing work. The energy possessed by a body by
virtue of its motion is called as kinetic energy and the
energy possessed by a body by virtue of its position
or configuration in some field is defined as potential
energy. When work is done on a body, its kinetic or
potential energy increases. On the other hand, when
the work is done by the body, its potential or kinetic
energy decreases. According to work energy
theorem, the workdone is equal to change in energy,
i.e., W = E.

higher the speed of the gas molecules, less are the
deviations. However, for every gas, there is a
particular temperature above which they show ideal
behavior over an appreciable range of pressure. This
temperature is called Boyle temperature. The plots of
compressibility factor versus pressure for a few gases

Passage : I (No. 15 to 17)
Redox reactions are those in which oxidation and
reduction take place simultaneously. Oxidising agent
can gain electron whereas reducing agent can lose
electron easily. The oxidation state of any element
can never be in fraction. If oxidation number of any
element comes out be in fraction, it is average
oxidation number of that element which is present in
different oxidation states.

A student wanted to apply his knowledge of
thermodynamics to obtain practical applications. He
performed a number of experiments. In one
experiment, he took a closed vessel in which he
dissolved 28 g of iron in hydrochloric acid at 27C.
In another experiment, he dissolved the same
amount of iron but in an open vessel. However, he
compressed the gas to 10 atm pressure at 27C and
then again allowed to expand it isothermally and
reversibly until the pressure fell down to 1 atm. In
one case, he used the work obtained to lift a heavy
body of mass 20 kg till the pressure fell down to
atmospheric pressure and in another case, he used
the work obtained to heat up 1 litre of water
(Assume that hydrogen behaves like an ideal gas).

Real gases show deviations from ideal behaviour.
Consequently, the observed molar volume of a gas is
found to be different from theoretically calculated
volume from ideal gas equation. The extent of
deviations is measured in terms of compressibility
factor, Z. It is found that gases which can be liquefied
