A stone tied to a string of length l is whirled around a vertical circle with the other end of the string at the centre. At a certain instant of time the stone is at the lowest position and has a speed u. What is the magnitude of change in its velocity as it reaches a position where the string is horizontal?
Let’s assume that the potential energy at the lowest position be zero. So, when the string is horizontal, the stone has risen by a vertical height l, the length of the string which is also the radius of the vertical circle.
If v is the magnitude of velocity at the horizontal position, then according to the law of conservation of energy,
KE+PE at the lowest position = KE+PE at the horizontal position
From the equation above, v-u can be calculated.

Surya Kant Dwivedi asks: “I am always confused in Physics that how can i do my best in Physics. It is my weakest portion in ’PCM’. Please guide me.”
Excelling in Physics in IIT JEE requires systematic planned preparation. The first step is to make sure that you can solve all the exercises from NCERT text book (including the solved examples and additional exercises) confidently and completely. This ensures that you have sufficient exposure and you are up to the standard expected of you.
The next step is to get a good collection of questions asked previously in IIT JEE and solve them. If you are not able to solve a problem, you are welcome to post it here.

Consider the shown arrangement in which a thin rope ‘A’ with a linear density mA is connected to a thick rope ‘B’ with linear mass density mB. The thick rope passes over a pulley and is connected to a heavy block of mass M. The separation of fixed support S from a pulley is L. A stationary wave is setup in this composite string such that the joint remains a node. Given that mb = 4 kg/m, ma = 0.4 kg/m, M = 1 kg and L = 4l = 1 m. Under these conditions, find:
- The least possible frequency of vibration
- The total energy of vibration if the amplitude for both the string is A = 1 mm and the string vibrates at the frequency obtained in (a).
ELIGIBILITY FOR JEE-2010
Candidates must make sure that they satisfy all the eligibility conditions given below for appearing in JEE-2010:
Date of Birth
The date of birth of candidates belonging to GE, OBC and DS categories should be on or after October 1,1985. Whereas the date of birth of those belonging to SC, ST and PD categories should be on or after October 1,1980.
The date of birth as recorded in the high school/first Board/ Pre-University certificate will be accepted. If the certificate does not mention the date of birth, a candidate must submit along with the application, an authenticated document indicating the date of birth.
Year of passing Qualifying Examination (QE)
A candidate must have passed the QE for the first time, after October 1, 2008 or in the year 2009 or will be appearing in 2010.
Those who are going to appear in the QE later than October 1, 2010 are not eligible to apply for JEE-2010.
The qualifying examinations (QE) are listed below:
i) The final examination of the 10+2 system, conducted by any recognized central / state Board, such as Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi; Council for Indian School Certificate Examination, New Delhi; etc.
ii) Intermediate or two-year Pre-University examination conducted by a recognized Board / University.
iii) Final examination of the two-year course of the Joint Services Wing of the National Defence Academy.
iv) General Certificate Education (GCE) examination (London/Cambridge/Sri Lanka) at the Advanced (A) level.
v) High School Certificate Examination of the Cambridge University or International Baccalaureate Diploma of the International Baccalaureate Office, Geneva.
vi) Any Public School/Board/University examination in India or in any foreign country recognized as equivalent to the 10+2 system by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU).
vii) H.S.C. vocational examination.
viii) Senior Secondary School Examination conducted by the National Institute of Open Schooling with a minimum of five subjects.
ix) 3 or 4 year Diploma recognized by AICTE or a state Board of technical education. In case the relevant qualifying examination is not a public examination, the candidate must have passed at least one public (Board or Pre-University) examination at an earlier level.
Minimum Percentage of Marks in QE
Candidates belonging to GE, OBC and DS categories must secure at least 60% marks in aggregate in their QE. Whereas, those belonging to SC, ST and PD categories must secure at least 55% marks in aggregate in the QE.
The percentage of marks awarded by the Board will be treated as final. If the Board does not award the percentage of marks, it will be calculated based on the marks obtained in all subjects listed in the mark sheet. If any Board awards only letter grades without providing an equivalent percentage of marks on the grade sheet, the candidate should obtain a certificate from the Board specifying the equivalent marks, and submit it at the time of counselling/ admission. In case such a certificate is not provided then the final decision rests with the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE-2010.
4. Important Points to note
(i) One can attempt JEE only twice, in consecutive years. That means one should have attempted JEE for the first time in 2009 or will be appearing in 2010.
(ii) Those who have accepted admission after qualifying in JEE in earlier years by paying full fees at any of the IITs, IT-BHU, Varanasi or ISM, Dhanbad, are NOT ELIGIBLE to write JEE at all irrespective of whether or not they joined in any of the programmes.
(iii) The year of passing the Qualifying Examination is the year in which the candidate has passed, for the first time, any of the examinations listed above, irrespective of the minimum percentage marks secured.
(iv) The offer of admission is subject to verification of original certificates/ documents at the time of admission. If any candidate is found ineligible at a later date even after admission to an Institute, his/ her admission will be cancelled automatically.
(iv) If a candidate is expecting the results of the QE in 2010, his/her admission will only be provisional until he/she submits the relevant documents. The admission stands cancelled if the documents are not submitted in original to the concerned institute before September 30,2010.
(v) If a candidate has passed any of the examinations, listed in Sub-section III.2, before October 1,2008, he/she is not eligible to appear in JEE-2010.
(vi) If a Board invariably declares the results of the QE late (only after September 30, every year), the candidate is advised to attempt JEE in 2011 or later.
(vii) The decision of the Joint Admission Board of JEE-201 0 regarding the eligibility of any applicant shall be final.
