This ebook will increase a student's take hold of of the legislation of physics by way of making use of them to useful events, and difficulties that yield extra simply to intuitive perception than brute-force equipment and intricate arithmetic. those interesting difficulties, selected nearly completely from classical (non-quantum) physics, are posed in available non-technical language requiring the coed to pick the proper framework during which to examine the location and judge which branches of physics are concerned. the extent of class had to take on lots of the 200 difficulties is that of the outstanding tuition pupil, the great undergraduate, or useful graduate scholar. The booklet could be helpful to undergraduates getting ready for 'general physics' papers. it really is was hoping that even a few physics professors will locate the tougher questions not easy. in contrast, mathematical calls for are minimum, and don't transcend simple calculus. This fascinating booklet of physics difficulties should still end up instructive, tough and enjoyable.

Example text

What path does the body follow if it is also acted upon by a homogeneous horizontal magnetic field? P185* A long, thin, vertical glass tube is surrounded by a much wider coaxial glass tube of outer radius r. Wound on the wider tube there are 46 200 Puzzling Physics Problems many separate circular conducting loops, each of resistance R and spaced a distance h apart. If a small magnet bar of mass m and magnetic moment 11 is dropped into the thin tube, after a relatively short time it reaches a constant terminal velocity vo, with which it then sinks uniformly.

Small liquid drops of various sizes are in a closed container, to whose walls the liquid does not adhere. Over a sufficiently long time, the size of the smallest drops is found to decrease whilst that of the larger ones increases, until finally only one large drop remains in the container. What is the explanation for this phenomenon? P132** 32 200 Puzzling Physics Problems P133 A horizontal frictionless piston, of negligible mass and heat capacity, divides a vertical insulated cylinder into two halves.

What would be the equivalent inductance if the elements were inductors of inductance L? ) is made up of identical, say 1-Q, resistors. What is the equivalent resistance between two neighbouring grid points? P161 The previous two problems were calculations about electrical networks consisting of identical resistors (an infinite grid or a regular polyhedron).
