Can the frictional electricity produced during landing of a plane be used for constructive purposes?
As we know that in aeroplane during landing the charged produced in it due to the friction with ground are earthed through its wheels; can this charge be stored with the help of a capacitor and used for useful purpose?
I feel that this is a metter for research.
If you feel otherwise and know some method to tap this potential, please post.
Why do we need Higg’s Boson? Helen Heath explains why the Standard Model needs the Higgs boson.
Gordon Fraser and Michael Riordan argue that the boson discovered at CERN should be known not as the Higgs boson, but the “higgson”

I want to ask this questions to students in open. Any student can join the discussion. Whatever you post, let it be your own genuine answer.
Here are the question for students.
If you get good marks in Physics, is it because of your teacher or because of your own effort?
If you don’t get good marks in Physics, is it because of your teacher or because of your own lack of practice?
Teachers are also welcomed to post their response.

How would I calculate the charge on a small sphere with an excess of 5.0 x 10 14 electrons?
Asked Kaitlin Thomas
We know that charge on an electron is (-) 1.6 x 10-19 C
If the sphere has 5.0 x 10 14 electrons in excess then the body has a net negative charge and is given by q = ne
Charge on the sphere = 5.0 x 10 14 x (-) 1.6 x 10 -19 = 8 x 10 -5 C
It’s the time of AISSCE Practical Examination.
How was your Physics Practical Examination and Viva?
Which questions were asked to you?
Which were the experiments and activities you were asked to perform?
How farely did you do it?
Share your experience here as comments to this post. Your responses will be a boon for the others.
You can post the questions you were asked during Viva so that others can find the answers to them and learn for the Viva during their turn.
