really really useful site i have ever visited! i like it very much

1. jack says:

rit

2. kuldeep says:

check problem 52 chapter 3 ans.given is wrong

2. shubhamgaurav says:

it is really a useful site for weak students.

1. sdcvsdcfsdfcdas says:

refer irodov

2. Rishikesh says:

irodov is a little tougher but ya we can clear jee with this book

3. abhi says:

so i think you are really weak.

3. rakesh mishra says:

4. Siri says:

In volume 1, chapter 3, problem no 31, why is the intial velocity of the elevator taken as zero?

because the elevator starts its motion at the moment when the coin is dropped. we consider the motion of elevator when coin is dropped.therefore u of both elevator and coin is taken zero.

2. kisha says:

arey yaar isme to pta ni kahan kahan se formula's utha k lga rkhe hain………really……..

3. SRAVAN says:

BECAUSE IT JUST STARTS FROM REST .

4. Mustafa says:

please read the question once again. coin is dropped when elevator just starts.
therfore u=0.

5. xyz says:

initial velocity of elevator is taken as 0 because elevator is starting from rest!

6. vidyalankar says:

bcauz in problem they have said that A PERSON IN ELEVATOR DROPS A COIN AT THE MOMENT THE ELEVATOR START… in problem they consider this condition hence the initial velocity(u)is zero……

5. Ruturaj says:

@Siri, Read the question very carefully, It says "a person in the elevator drops the coin at the moment the elevator starts." So u = 0(a body always start from rest… )

Can u help me with Laws Of motion Problem no.28.. In the solutions the equation for the third object is taken as
[t/2 – m3g – m3(a + a') = 0 ]
Why?

Shouldn't it be [m3g – t/2 – m3(a + a') = 0]

1. abhishek.sharma says:

check…it has relative acceleration a2,which is acting in upward diection……it,'s easy if you apply contraint relation…….

2. Raj says:

you can take is anyway…. it's just the matter of direction… in the end if u chose the wrong direction… u will get a -ve sign with ur answer….

3. Mustafa says:

acceleration of block is a+a' . force is m(a+a') and is taken on left.

6. saurabh says:

i hav such problems in ths books which are best examples for concept build up.

and i want to have my clear concepts on those problem.this website helped me so much in this situation.

7. dheshik says:

thanks

8. abi says:

sollutions are presented in an excelent way

1. bt sum ppl say doing this book only will not help u crack jee…………..:(((

1. bt i am not among those ppl…

1. kushagra says:

i really liked this book. it not only clears the doubt of students but also generates interest of student towards the physics

2. Mustafa says:

do this book once then go for resnick nd halliday. but don't read theroy of resnick hallidayas its theory is above jee level. problems are enjoyable

1. arceus_96 says:

Are you bloody crazy? Resnick and Halliday has a very, VERY lucid theory, definitely not above JEE level.
You must be crazy.

9. tweeny one says:

incredibly good site…….really helpful…concepts of physics – hc verma !!
thanks.!

17. ch 5 ques. 33, phy. volume 1 m not able to eliminate r,t and a……help me out…

1. Garima says:

Mg – T =Ma —— A
T – Rsin* = M'a ———–B
Rcos* = mg —-c
Rsin* – ma = 0 ———D
D in B
T – ma = M'a
=> T = (m+M')a ———-E
E in A
Mg = (m+M'+M)a ———F
c / D
tan* = a/g => a = gtan* ———G
G in F
Mg = (m+M'+M) gtan*
M(1- tan*) = M'+m
M= ((m+M')tan*)/ (1- tan*)
M = (m+M') / (cot* – 1 )

18. kartikey says:

ideal book for iit-jee

19. ch 6, q 22, b part.. 12 newton is not shown on lower block…y so?

1. Aravindravi says:

when 12 N is applied on lower block…..there are two forces in horizontal direction..so…..12N-friction force=ma………(note……in friction force..the friction is exerted by 2kg mass so…m=2kg)…but in ma ……m=4kg

20. srry silly mistake of mine…..pls dont bother about it..

21. q-27…..ch 7..vol. 1… y normal is taken towards center????

1. Aravindravi says:

the normal acts along the radial direction……………that is because the person is pushed towards the walls.hence the walls provide a force in the opposite direction….towards the center……….(actually its a cylinder…..)…..

22. mohan mukharjee says:

it's wonderful.

23. akash says:

kmhg

24. its a wonderful site

25. yusuf says:

26. subhashree says:

accurate(2 quite n xtent) n well organised..!
tnx!

1. aravind says:

its not accurate.some questions are wrong….i mean ans are given in a wrong fashion

27. UDAY says:

anybody can explain Q 14 CHAPTER 9 VOL 1 PLS PLS PLS PLS

1. Dhawal Harkawat says:

see uday,

first , in these type of problems , there is a shift in the centre of mass of the body– and whenever these type of problems comes, we generally use the formula —

dispalcement = CM1 – CM2

now in this situation , consider , the ballon as the origin (0,0) and the monkey's position to be (L,0) or (0,L) {whatever you please} as the monkey is away from the origin by a distance L (the length of the rope)…

so first of all , let us find the CM (centre of mass) when monkey is not moving i.e at rest —

so CM1 = (M1X1 + M2X2 / M1 + M2) = ml / M + m

WHERE M1 – mass of monkey
M2 – mass of ballon
X1 – L
X2 – 0

Now as soon as monkey starts moving towards the ballon ,, and finally reaches there ..,,, so X1 = 0 as new position of monkey becomes (0,0)

so ,, CM2 = 0

by applying the above mentioned formula ,, we grt the answer as —–

ml / M + m

where the symbols have been put according to the symbols used in the question,,,,,

DHAWAL HARKAWAT

28. devna says:

a person brings mass of 1 kg from infinity to a pt A .initially the mass was at rest but moves at a speed of 2m/s as it reaches A .the work done by person on the mass is -3 J .the potential at A is..?

29. archana says:

I don think I could hv solved all d qstns on my own. Thanks a lot…

one who solved both the books completely i can write and give he will crack iitjee!!!

31. amit kumar says:

32. SNEHA says:

THANKS ALOT THT WAS REALLY VERY HELPFUL….

33. aniket says:

its nice

34. vivek says:

i have a doubt in chapter 9 .3rd sum
if am wrong please notify me
what i think is :the mass i distributed along the length but,
according to the solution the entire mass is concentrated in the point L/10,L/2.————->just look for this m(L/2+L/10)
am i correct ?

1. chinmay says:

Luk vivek’
wt u r sayin is correct!!
bt as d rods r unifrm each of d rod has its COM at L/2.
(u cn asume d mass 2 b concntratd at COM)
& then u cn easily gt d positn of COM of whole systm!!

36. rajesh sherma says:

when a light beam passes through the glass slab first it reduceses it velocity and the get it again why this happends

1. rajesh says:

why

2. PARVEEN says:

VELOCITY DEPEND ON REFRACTIVE INDEX GLASS TO AIR REF. INDEX DECRSES SO VELOCITY INCREASES

3. Dharmik says:

take it this way…. u r runnin at ur max speed on a non crowded track… and u r runnin at ur maximum speed on a crowded track… obviously max speed on non crowded track > max speed on crowded track…. this is because density of the crowded place is more than density of non crowded place…. same happens in the case of light…. when it goes to a denser medium its max speed i.e 3.8 x 10 raise to power 8 decreases….

H.C.Verma, the best book of theory for IIT-JEE preparation….& secnd 2 Irodov as whole……..

59. dhruv says:

I think a faster way to solve problem no 60 chapt9 will be to conserve energgy and momentum along X-axis = 0. Momentum along Y – Axis shall not be conserved since an external reactin force N is being applied on the system.

in chapter 10 Q no. 40 mei m1f*r3g 1 and 3 is in subscript… what is it

61. anirudh says:

in chapter 10 Q no. 68 mei rod ka moment of inertia about an end mr2 le kar solve kiya hai… magar ml2/3 karne par kuch aur ata hai….2 is in superscript

62. ashu says:

PLS ASK VERY SHORT ANSWER QUESTIONS TO ME BCOZ THEY ARE VERY GOOD TO SOLVE THAN EXERCISE

63. Parag says:

Irodov is d best book for IIT-JEE……

64. Nilabhra says:

I think the answer to problem 28 in chapter 5 is wrong. In the solution it is written :

T = 1g – 1a2 = 0 …(i) from fig (2)

which is impossible because the block moves up with acceleration a1.

65. Nilabhra says:

Let me rephrase that. The answer given is correct (of course) but the method of solving I find to be wrong.

66. Sir, I want the solution of sir H. C. Verma but I dont know how to get this. Can u plz give me ur mobile no.to talk in detail. Plz…

67. i want derivations for formulas

i just have 1 question : what is the difference between the triangle addition of vector law and the parallelogram addition of vector

78. it’s very good . dis is for all weak n intelligent students . thnxxxxxxxxxxx 2 h. c. verma

fantastic

79. naveen says:

see suyash………….

in traingle addition of vector law :-
if the two vectors AB & AC are strating from the same pt.A their resultant will be in
and the resultant of BC.
but in parellelogram law of vector addition:-
the resultant of AB & AC will be orginating from
from pt.A making some angle with AB and AC

84. IT HELPS A LOT TO GET THE IDEA!!!!!!! TO SOLVE THE PROBLMS….!!!! REDUCES THE STRESS…#!!!\$#!!!\$#!

in chapter 6(friction) in question 29.i dont understood what is written there in the solution.

86. arvind says:

chapter 6 problm 21 2 mistakes
1)at 3 last step it should b U-1 not u+1
2)T means max force where is tension because if no tension the block will nt experience = force from both sides and wl accelerate.please verify eating my head off.

87. bhargava says:

very very useful

88. Nilabhra says:

@Dimple Chouhan

Yep there is a much better way:

Use the vertical distance to calculate time (here initial velocity is zero, since it has only horizontal velocity)

Then use the time to find the horizontal velocity using the minimum horizontal distance (40cm)

135. Kautilya says:

the solutions given on this site is very complicated….
plzz do it in easiar way…!
i hav seen some known ans. of some question which u hav done it in a very complicated way!

1. You are always welcome to post alternate methods. Come on! Help the community.

2. vidyalankar says:

hey its not complicate… then u should refer resnick hallyday 8th edition to clear ur concepts…it will help u to solve the problem….

136. Kautilya says:

its not about the concept VIDYALANKAR
ok fine….take chapter no.9 Question no.42
we can directly put the distance travelled along the incline as 0 and solve it…
the answer to this question hardly completes in 4 to 5 line and u have done all that complicated maths calculation….H C Verma is a great book and we should answer it in a very simple way (logically)
but never mind!….some answers are done in a very good manner…!

can anyone answer this question..plz mail it to my email address nainam.007don@gmail.com

my question is:

a rod of length L is placed along x-axis at leftmost end its linear mass density is lemda1(^1)
and at right most end it is lemda 2 (^2)
as we move from left to right linear mass density increases LINEARLY from lemda 1 to lemda 2….find the COM of this rod?

143. Kartik says:

I have problem in Chap-5 , Ques 28.
I made equations as follows –

for mass , m1 –>
T – m1g = m1a1

for mass , m2 –>
T/2 – m2g = m2(a1 – a2 )

for mass , m3–>
m3g – T/2 = m3(a1 + a2)

but in the solution only my 2nd equation is correct..
mass m1 is going up so it should be T – m1g = m1a1 .. , right ??
and m3 is going down….. but in sol they have marked its acc. upwards… why so ???
