VISCOSITY

MEANING OF VISCOSITY Viscosity is the internal friction which exists between layers of the molecules of a fluid (liquid or gas) in motion. The viscosity of a fluid can also be defined as the measure of how resistive the fluid is to flow. It is a vector quantity & measured in pascal-seconds(pa.s). It can be […]

WORK, ENERGY AND POWER

WORK Work is said to be done whenever a force moves a body through a certain distance in the direction of force.  Work done can be defined mathematically as the product of the force and the displacement. It is a scalar quantity & measured in Joules W = F X d ……………………………………….1. W = mgh

DENSITY & RELATIVE DENSITY

DEFINITION OF DENSITY The density of a substance is the mass per unit volume of the substance. Density = mass of a given substance Volume of the substance Density is scalar quantity& measured in kgm-3 (kilogram per cubic meter)   Determination of Density The determination of density involves the determination of a mass and a

FRICTION

DEFINITION OF FRICTION Friction (Fr) is defined as a force which acts at the surface of separation between two objects or two bodies in contact and tend to oppose the motion of one over the other. It is simply force of opposition. We have two types of friction: (a) Static friction, Fs (b) Dynamic friction,

MOTION IN NATURE

FUNDAMENTALS OF MOTION Many scientists have studied motion and its properties because of its importance to life. The Italian, Galileo Galilei, who lived from 1564 to 1642, did the first systematic study of motion. The science of the study of motion done by Galileo is known as kinematics. Isaac Newton was another scientist who did

INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICS

MEANING OF PHYSICS Physics is the scientific study of matter and energy and how they interact with each other. This energy can take the form of motion, light, electricity, radiation, gravity etc. Physics deals with matter on scales ranging from sub-atomic particles (i.e. the particles that make up the atom and the particles that make
