IN PHYSICS I OFTEN GET STRUCK OF A QUESTION OF NOT A SINGLE TEACHER OR MY FRIENDS COULD ANSWER ME THE QUESTION IS THAT
“IF SPEED OF LIGHT IS 3 x 108 METRE PER SEC, THAN WHAT IS THE SPEED OF DARKNESS????….”
Asked Taoqeer Nezam
Can you see your image when you are travelling at the speed of light?
Visitors and students are requested to respond and answer via comments.
Einstein’s Theory of relativity says:”The Laws of Physics are the same in any Inertial Frame of Reference.”
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.

What is the reason for proton- proton attraction inside the nucleus according to nuclear physics? (Sanjeev Asked)
Answer: Inside the nucleus where the nucleons are very close to each other, the force which holds them together is the nuclear force, which is the strongest force in nature. The electrostatic force between protons is negligibly small compared to the nuclear force. But the nuclear force is of a very short range, 10^-15 m.
The nuclear force is charge independent, i.e; the nuclear force between proton and proton, proton and neutron as well as neutron and neutron are almost the same.
Yukawa’s meson theory suggest that the nuclear force is an exchange force. The nucleons are bound because of constant exchange of the mesons.
The nuclear force is only felt among hadrons. At small separations between nucleons (less than ~ 0.7 fm between their centers) the force becomes repulsive, which keeps the nucleons at a certain average separation, even if they are of different types. At distances larger than 0.7 femtometer (fm) the force becomes attractive between spin-aligned nucleons, becoming maximal at a center-center distance of about 0.9 fm. Beyond this distance the force drops essentially exponentially, until beyond about 2.0 fm separation, the force drops to negligibly small values.
At short distances (less than 1.7 fm or so), the nuclear force is stronger than the Coulomb force between protons; it thus overcomes the repulsion of protons inside the nucleus.
However, the Coulomb force between protons has a much larger range due to its decay as the inverse square of charge separation, and Coulomb repulsion thus becomes the only significant force between protons when their separation exceeds about 2 to 2.5 fm.
(There are many terms introduced in the explanation. You can discuss them as comments for obtaining further details, if required)

Mohak Tandon Asks – “ “Is the acceleration due to gravity different in south pole and north pole?” Answer: As per theory, acceleration due to gravity changes with altitude, depth and latitude. If we consider that the variation of g with latitude is caused by rotation of earth only, then the value of g will be same for both [...]
