MECHANICAL PROPERTIES

OF SOLIDS AND FLUIDS

developed inside the body. The restoring force per

unit area of the body is called stress.

Deforming force : External force which tries to

change in the length, volume or shape of the body

is called deforming force.

Elasticity : It is that property of the material of a

body by virtue of which the body opposes any

change in its shape or size when deforming forces

are applied to it, and recovers its original state as

soon as the deforming forces are removed.

Perfectly elastic body : The body which perfectly

regains its original form on removing the external

deforming force, is defined as a perfectly elastic

body, e.g., quartz is very nearly to a perfectly elastic

body.

Plastic body : The bodies which remain in deformed

state even after removal of the deforming force are

defined as plastic bodies.

Internal restoring force : When an external force

acts at any substance then due to the intermolecular

force there is an internal resistance produced into

the substance called internal restoring force.

At equilibrium the numerical value of internal

restoring force is equal to the external force.

is called longitudinal stress. It is of two types :

When the force is acting all

volume stress. The effect

of pressure is to produce

change in volume. The shape

of the body may or may not change depending

upon the homogeneity of body.

Dependence of breaking stress : Nature of

material, temperature, impurities.

Independence of breaking stress : Cross

sectional area or thickness, applied force.

Maximum load (force) applied on the wire

depends on cross sectional area or thickness,

The ratio of the change in configuration (i.e., shape,

length or volume) to the original configuration of

the body is called strain.

is called breaking point. At this position the stress

acting in that wire is called breaking stress and

strain is called breaking strain.

Elastic after effect or Elastic relaxation : The

property, by virtue of which a body does not regain

its original form immediately after removing the

deforming force but gains it after some time, is

defined as elastic relaxation.

Elastic fatigue : It is defined as the loss in the

strength (elasticity) of a material caused due to

repeated alternating strains to which the material

is subjected.

Elastic hysteresis : The

strain persists even when

the stress is removed. This

lagging behind of strain

is called elastic hysteresis.

This is the reason why the

values of strain for same

increasing the load and

while decreasing the load.

Metals with small plastic deformation are

called brittle while metals with large plastic

deformation are called ductile.

Elasticity

restoring forces are strictly

conservative only when the elastic hysteresis

is zero, i.e., the loading and unloading stress strain curves are identical.

The material which have low elastic hysteresis

have also low elastic relaxation time.

instrument called Gauge pressure.

in a fluid, it experiences an upward force due to the

fluid surrounding it. This phenomenon of force

exerted by fluid on the body is called buoyancy and

force is called buoyant force or upthrust.

Buoyant force, FB = rVg

r = density of fluid, V = volume of displaced fluid

Archimedes principle : It states that the buoyant

force on a body that is partially or totally immersed

in a liquid is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced

by it.

Buoyant force acts vertically upward through the

centre of gravity of the displaced fluid. This point

is called centre of buoyancy. It depends upon the

effective acceleration.

If a lift is accelerated downwards with

acceleration a(a < g) then FB = rV(g a)

If a lift is accelerated downwards with a = g

then FB = rV(g a) = 0

If a lift is accelerated upward with acceleration

a then FB = rV(g + a)

Due to upthrust, the weight of the body decreases.

Wapp = W FB (W is the true weight of the body)

Decrease in weight = W Wapp = FB = Weight of

the fluid displaced

Using Archimedes principle, we can determine

relative density (R.D.) of a body as

This is known as law of floatation.

The floating body will be in stable equilibrium

when the metacentre lies above centre of gravity

of body.

The floating body will be in unstable equilibrium

when the metacentre lies below centre of gravity

of body.

The floating body will be in neutral equilibrium

when the metacentre coincides with centre of

gravity of body.

If a person floats on his back on the surface of

water, the apparent weight of the person is zero.

) Equation of continuity

14

the fluid characteristics like velocity, pressure and

density at a point do not change with time.

In steady flow, all the particles passing

through a given point follow the same path and

hence a unique line of flow. This line or path

is called a streamline. Streamlines do not

intersect each other.

In an unsteady flow, the velocity, pressure and

density at a point in the flow varies with time.

Laminar flow is the flow in which the fluid particles

move along well-defined streamlines which are

straight and parallel. In this flow, the velocities

at different points in the fluid may have different

magnitudes, but their directions are parallel.

Turbulent flow is an irregular flow in which the

particles can move in zig-zag way due to which

eddies formation take place which are responsible

for high energy losses.

In compressible flow, the density of fluid varies

from point to point, whereas in incompressible

flow, the density of the fluid remains constant

throughout. Liquids are generally incompressible

while gases are compressible.

energy is a function of temperature only, so it will

remain constant during an isothermal change.

As DT = 0, so DU = CV DT = 0

(b) Adiabatic expansion : For an adiabatic change,

DQ = 0, so from first law of thermodynamics,

DQ = DU + DW = 0 or DW = DU

During adiabatic expansion, work is done by a

gas i.e., DW is positive, so DU must be negative.

Hence internal energy of a gas decreases during an

adiabatic expansion.

fall of the water, the major part of its potential

energy is converted into kinetic energy of the water.

However, on striking the ground, a part of it is

converted into heat and sound. It is not possible to

convert the heat and the sound produced along with

the kinetic energy of water into potential energy so

that the water can not rise back to its initial height.

Therefore, water fall is not a reversible process.

(b) Rusting of iron : During rusting, iron gets

oxidised by the oxygen of the air. Since it is a

chemical change so it is not a reversible process.

velocity of air molecules on the moon is smaller than

that on the earth. As the moon is in the proximity of

the Earth as seen from the sun so solar irradiance

on the moon surface is same as that of the earth.

Escape velocity of the particle on the moon is

2.38 km s1. The rms speed of the constituents of

air (O2, N2, CO2 and water vapour) lies between

0.4 km s1 to 0.8 km s1, which is smaller than

2.38 km s1. Inspite of this a significant number

of molecules have speeds greater than 2.38 km s1

arrange the speed distribution for the equilibrium

temperature. Again a significant number of

molecules get their speeds greater than 2.38 km

s1 and escape. Due to this continuous process, the

moon has lost its atmosphere over a long period of

time.

(b) We know, E = U + K = constant

As the molecules move higher their potential

energy (U) increase but and kinetic energy (K)

decrease and hence fall in temperature. At greater

height more volume is available for gas to expand

and hence some cooling takes place i.e., a fall in

temperature.

15. (a) The two bodies may have different masses and

different materials i.e., they may have different

26

equal thermal capacities, they would settle at

the mean temperature (T1 + T2)/2.

(b) The purpose of a coolant is to absorb maximum

heat with least rise in its own temperature. This

is possible only if specific heat is high because

Q = mc DT. For a given value of m and Q the

rise in temperature DT will be small if c is large.

This will prevent different parts of the nuclear

reactor from getting too hot.

(c) The relative humidity of a harbour town is more

than that of a desert town. Due to high specific

heat of water, the variations in the temperature

of humid air are less. Hence the climate of a

harbour town is without the extreme of hot or

cold.

16. (a) When the stopcock is suddenly opened, the

volume available to the gas at 1 atm becomes

twice the original volume and hence pressure

becomes half the original volume (Boyle's law).

Hence the pressure of the gas in each of the

cylinders A and B is 0.5 atm.

(b) As the system is thermally insulated, so DQ = 0.

Also, the gas expands against zero pressure, so

DW = 0. Hence by first law of thermodynamics,

DU = 0 i.e., there is no change in the internal

energy of the gas.

(c) As there is no change in the internal energy of

the gas, so the temperature of the gas remains

unchanged.

(d) No. The free expansion of the gas is very

rapid and hence cannot be controlled. The

intermediate states are non-equilibrium states

and do not satisfy the gas equation. In due

course, the gas returns to equilibrium state

which lies on P-V-T surface.

(b) Yes. Some work is done by the man in shaking

the coffee against the forces of viscosity i.e., DW

is negative.

(c) By first law of thermodynamics, DQ = DU + DW.

As DQ = 0 and DW is negative, so DU is positive

i.e., internal energy of the coffee increases.

(d) Because of the increase in internal energy of the

coffee, the temperature of the coffee will also

increase.

towards the ball with a speed v relative to the

wicket, then the relative speed of the ball to bat

is v + u towards the bat. When the ball rebounds

(after hitting the massive bat) its speed, relative

to bat, v + (v + u) = 2v + u, moving away

from the wicket. So the ball speeds up after

the collision with the bat. For a molecule,

this would imply an increase in temperature.

(b) When a gas in cylinder is compressed by

pushing in a piston, the speed of the molecules

or their kinetic energy increases. This increases

the temperature of the gas.

(c) When a compressed gas pushes a piston out, the

speed of the molecules or their kinetic energy

decreases. This decreases the temperature of

the gas.

The values displayed by the teacher are providing

(b) Boyle's law is valid for a fixed mass of a gas.

When we pump air into a cycle tyre, air molecules

are pushed into the tyre and so the mass of the

air in the tyre increases. Hence Boyle's law is not

applicable under the given situation.

24. If some heat is supplied to a system which is capable

of doing work, then the quantity of heat absorbed by

the system will be equal to the sum of the increase

in its internal energy and the external work done by

the system on the surroundings.

Let

DQ = Heat supplied to the system by the surroundings

DW = Work done by the system on the surroundings

DU = Change in internal energy of the system

Then according to the first law of thermodynamics,

P

DQ = DU + DW

Area = A

Suppose the system is a

gas contained in a cylinder

provided with a movable

piston. Then the gas does work

in moving the piston. The work

Gas

done by the system against a

constant pressure P is

DW = Force Distance

Q

= PA dx

or DW = P DV

where DV = Adx = the change in the volume of

the gas.

So, the first law of thermodynamics takes the form,

DQ = DU + P DV

When the piston moves up through a small distance

dx, the work done by the gas will be

dW = PA dx = P dV

Limitations of the first law of thermodynamics are

as follows :

(i) It does not indicate the direction of transfer of

heat.

(ii) It does not tell anything about the conditions

under which heat can be converted into

mechanical work.

(iii) It does not indicate the extent to which heat

energy can be converted into mechanical work

An isothermal process is one in which the pressure

and volume of the system change but temperature

remains constant.

25. Carnot engine is an ideal reversible heat engine

that operates between two temperatures T1 (source)

and T2 (sink). The working substance is carried

through a reversible cycle of the following four

steps :

Step 1 : Isothermal expansion (AB). Place the

cylinder on the source so that the gas acquires the

temperature T1 of the source. As the gas absorbs the

required amount of heat from the source, it expands

isothermally. If Q1 heat is absorbed from the source

and W1 work is done by the gas in isothermal

to (P2, V2, T1), then

Work done by the gas when the piston moves up

through a small distance dx is given by

dW = PA dx = PdV

Area = A

where A is the cross-sectional

area of the piston and

dV = Adx, is the small

increase in the volume of the

gas. Suppose the gas expands

(P3, V3, T2), then

W2 =

Step 3 : Isothermal compression (CD). The gas

is now placed in thermal contact with the sink

at temperature T2. The gas is slowly compressed

so that as heat is produced, it easily flows to the sink.

The temperature of the gas remains constant at T2.

If Q2 heat is released by the gas to the sink and

W3 work is done on the gas by the surroundings

in the isothermal compression which takes its state

from (P3, V3, T2) to (P4, V4, T2), then

V

W3 = Q2 = nRT2 ln 3 = area CNLDC

V4

Step 4 : Adiabatic compression (DA). The cylinder

is again placed on the insulating stand. The gas is

further compressed slowly till it returns to its initial

state (P1, V1, T1).

If W4 is the work done in the adiabatic compression

from (P4, V4, T2) to (P1, V1, T1), then

nR(T1 T2 )

W4 =

(in steps 1 and 2)

Total work done on the gas = W3 + W4

But W2 = W4

\ W = W1 W3 = Q1 Q2

Also, W = area ABMKA + area BCNMB

or W = area ABCDA

Hence in a Carnot engine, the mechanical work

done by the gas per cycle is numerically equal to

the area of the Carnot cycle.

Efficiency of Carnot engine is defined as the ratio

of the net work done per cycle by the engine to the

amount of heat absorbed per cycle by the working

substance from the source.

Nuclear Force

F

It is the strongest force in the universe and acts only

between the nucleons.

Very short range : Only upto size of nucleus (3 or

4 fermi). More than this distance, nuclear force is

almost zero.

Very much depends upon distance : Small variation

in distance may cause of large change in nuclear

force while electrostatic force remains almost

unaffected.

Independent of charge : Interacts between n-n as

well as between p-p and also between n-p.

Spin dependent : It is stronger between nucleons

having same sense of spin than between nucleons

having opposite sense of spin.

minority carriers is much larger than the fractional

change in majority carriers in forward bias. So,

effect of intensity of light on the minority carriers

dominated reverse bias current is more easily

measurable than that in forward bias current.

3. High frequency carrier waves are used to increase

operating range, to reduce antenna length and

convert the wide band signal into narrow band

signal. Then the signal can be easily recovered and

distinguished from other signals at the receiving

station.

4. A repeater is a combination of a transmitter, an

amplifier and a receiver which picks up a signal

from the transmitter, amplifies and retransmits it

to the receiver sometimes with a change of carrier

frequency. Multiple repeaters help in extending the

range of the communication system.

carriers (electrons or holes) entering into base from

the emitter will be neutralised due to recombination

of opposite charge carriers in base region. As a

result, (i) the collector current IC will decrease, but

(ii) base current IB will increase.

7. The component X in the figure is intermediate

frequency (IF) stage, which facilitates further

processing of the received signal by lowering the

carrier frequency.

The component Y is an amplifier, which amplifies

the detected signal so as to have a strong output.

current of few microamperes flows due to the drift

of minority charge carriers whose number density

remains constant, so the current under reverse bias

is almost independent of the applied potential upto

a critical voltage.

(ii) When the reverse voltage across the p-n

junction reaches a critical voltage, the reverse

current suddenly increases to a large value. It is

due to the increase in the number of minority

charge carriers because of the breakdown of the

diode. The avalanche breakdown occurs in lightly

doped diodes due to ionisation by collision. Zener

breakdown occurs at low voltages in heavily doped

diodes by field emission.

11. A full wave rectifier consists of a transformer, two

junction diodes D1 and D2 and a load resistance RL.

The input a.c. signal is fed to the primary coil P of the

transformer. The two ends A and B of the secondary

S are connected to the p-ends of diodes D1 and D2.

The secondary is tapped at its central point T which

is connected to the n-ends of the two diodes through

the load resistance RL, as shown in figure.

A (input of D1) and end B( input of D2) of the

secondary with respect to the centre tap T will

be out of phase with each other. Supposed during

the positive half cycle of a.c. input, the end A is

positive and the end B is negative with respect to

the centre tap T. Then the diode D1 gets forward

biased and conducts current along the path

AD1XYTA, as indicated by the solid arrows. The

diode D2 is reverse biased and does not conduct.

During the negative half cycle, the end A becomes

negative and the end B becomes positive with

respect to the centre tap T. The diode D1 gets

reverse biased and does not conduct. The diode

D2 conducts current along the path BD2XYTB,

as indicated by broken arrows. As during both

half cycles of input a.c. the current through load

RL flows in the same direction (X Y), so we

get a pulsating d.c. voltage across RL, as shown in

figure.

n-p-n transistor in CE configuration. Here RB is a

resistor in the input circuit and RC in the output

circuit.

V0 = VCC ICRC

...(i)

V0 = VCC

Active region : When Vi increases slightly above

0.7 V, a current IC flows in the output circuit

and the transistor is said to be in the active state.

From equation (i), as the term IC RC increases,

the output voltage V0 decreases. Now as Vi

increases, IC increases almost linearly and so V 0

decreases linearly till its value becomes less then

1.0 V.

Saturation region : When Vi is high i.e., the emitterbase junction is heavily forward biased, a large

collector current IC flows which produces such a

large potential drop across load resistance RC that

the emitter-collector junction also gets forward

biased. The output voltage V0 decreases to almost

zero. The transistor is said to be in the saturation

sate because it cannot pass any more collector

current IC.

13. In the following figure, the

transistor is a n-p-n

transistor with baseemitter junction forward

biased and the collector

reverse biased. Hence,

a base current IB and

consequently,

current IC flow in the circuit. If value of resistor

R is reduced, then IB and correspondingly IC will

increase. Due to increase in IC, the lamp will go more

brilliantly. Due to increase in current IC flowing

through lamp resistance the potential difference

across the lamp increases and consequently,

voltmeter reading will increase.

14. The given circuit includes an AND and an OR gate,

as shown in figure

from one form to another from.

(ii) Receiver : It is a device which recovers the

original message signal from the signal received at

the output of the communication channel.

(iii) Transmitter : It is a device which processes

the incoming message signal into a form suitable

for transmission through a channel and for its

subsequent transmission.

(iv) Bandpass filter : A bandpass filter blocks lower

In sky wave propagation,

by transmitting antenna are directed towards the

range 2 MHz to 30 MHz are reflected back by the

ionosphere.

transmitted to the stations which otherwise become

inaccessible to the ground due to curvature of

earth. Thus due to reflection by ionosphere, radio

wave signals can be transmitted virtually from any

one place to the other on surface of earth. So it is

useful for very long distance radio communication.

Thus for long distance radio broadcasts through sky

wave propagation, we use short wave bands.

17. In amplitude modulation, the amplitude of the

carrier is varied by the modulating signal and the

change in amplitude from the unmodulated value

is directly proportional to the instantaneous value

of the modulating signal but is independent of its

frequency. This is represented in figure.

Carrier wave

(a)

Amplitude-modulated wave

In frequency modulation, the instantaneous

frequency of the carrier is varied by the modulating

signal. The instantaneous deviation of frequency

from the unmodulated values is directly proportional

to the instantaneous value of the modulating

signal but is independent of its frequency. This is

represented in figure.

of reception and (iv) small operating range.

FM has : (i) very high efficiency, (ii) noiseless

reception, (iii) high fidelity and (iv) large operating

range.

Practically all natural and man-made noises result

in electrical amplitude disturbances (variation).

Since in FM modulation, the carrier amplitude is

kept constant, all the amplitude-sensitive noises are

eliminated because variations in amplitude due to

noise are not reproduce. To limit the FM signal to

constant amplitude, a limiter circuit is used in an

FM receiver.

18. Television frequencies lie in

the range 100 200 MHz.

Let T.V. signals be

transmitted

from

an

antenna of height PQ = hT.

Due to the curvature of the

earth, no direct signals are

possible beyond the points

S or T, as shown in figure.

Let PS = PT = d.

From right-angled DOTQ, we get

OQ2 = OT2 + QT2

Here, OQ = R + hT , QT = PT = d

OT = R = Radius of the earth

\ (R + hT)2 = R2 + d2

or R2 + hT2 + 2hTR = R2 + d2

hT

or d2 = hT2 + 2hTR = 2hTR 1 +

2R

But hT << R, therefore, d2 = 2hTR or d = 2hT R

Initial state

initial state. In this state, current in the circuit i is

maximum because there is no potential difference

across capacitor to oppose the applied voltage, i.e., it

behaves like being short circuited. If you wish to find

initial current, short the terminals of the capacitor.

Hence at t = 0 the circuit can be redraw as shown in

the figure.

VR also decreases gradually,

but instantaneous voltage

gradually till it reaches at its

maximum value or steady state value . Although VR and

VC are variable, their algebraic summation at any instant

always equal to , i.e., at any time t, = VR + VC .

Final state (Steady state)

gradually and it becomes zero at final state or steady

state, hence at steady state condition, the circuit appears

as an open circuit (i = 0), which implies VR = 0 and

VC = . At this state capacitor gets completely charged

and the value of charge becomes maximum and its

maximum value is q0 = C.

Consider a circuit in which a

resistor of resistance R is

A B

connected in series with a

i

capacitor of capacitance C,

the combination is connected

K

across a battery of emf .

to plate B as shown in the figure. The voltage across

capacitor rise to exponentially and not linearly.

Charging current i is maximum at the start, i.e., when

capacitor is uncharged, then it decreases exponentially

and finally ceases when potential difference across

capacitor plate becomes equal and opposite to the

battery voltage. Hence as charge q on capacitor increases,

current i in the circuit decreases. In other words, as

the time passes, potential difference across resistor

(V R) decreases and difference across the capacitor

(VC) increases.

Whenever a R-C circuit connected with a DC source,

goes from initial state to final state (steady state

condition), it passes through a transient state which is

of short duration. In fact transient state lies in between

initial state and final state (steady state condition).

Important points

Charge on the capacitor at time t is,

q = q0 (1 et/RC)

q0 is the maximum charge on the capacitor, i.e.,

charge on the capacitor at steady state.

\ q0 = C, where is the emf of the cell applied

to the circuit.

Here, = RC is the time constant of the R-C circuit.

Its unit is second.

Hence, charge at time t becomes,

q = q0(1 et/)

We know that charge in the circuit at time t is,

q = q0(1 et/)

If t = , i.e., after one time constant, charge in the

circuit is,

\ q = q0(1 e / )

= q0(1 e 1) = q0 1

e

\ q = 0.632 q0

defined as the time during which charge on the

capacitor actually rises from zero to 0.632 of its

final steady value (maximum value) of the charge.

It means after one time constant, 63% of total

charge is accumulated on the capacitor.

As, q = q0(1 et/)

At t = 0, q = q0(1 e0) = q0(1 1)

\ q=0

Hence at t = 0, capacitor can be treated as short

circuit, i.e., capacitor provides zero resistance.

At t = ,

q = q0(1 e) = q0 1

\ q = q0

Hence t = , i = 0, i.e., capacitor acts as an open

circuit.

Just at the start of the charging, charge on the

capacitor is zero. As, charging continues, charge

on the capacitor changes according to the equation

q = q0(1 et/). It becomes maximum (q0) when

t = , though it is almost charged to this value in

about five time constants (5).

Discharging of capacitor

is shorted after the capacitor is fully

charged and the capacitor is allowed

to discharge through a resistor or

through a resistor.

Suppose the key is closed at t = 0, let q be the charge

on the capacitor and i be the current in the circuit at

any instant of time.

q = q0 et/RC

q0 is the initial charge on the capacitor, i.e., charge

on the capacitor at t = 0.

Here, = RC is the time constant of the R-C circuit.

Its unit is second.

Hence, charge at time t becomes,

As, q = q0 et/RC

We know that charge in the circuit at time t,

q = q0 et/

If t = , i.e., after one time constant, charge in the

circuit is,

\ q = q0 e/; q = q0 e1 = 0.37 q0

Hence, the time constant of an R-C circuit is defined

as the time during which charge on the capacitor

falls to 0.37 of its initial value (maximum value)

of the charge. Time constant can also be defined

as the time in which charge on the capacitor falls

to 37% of its maximum value during discharging

process.

Method-II: Another method can be used to find

the charge on the capacitor of R-C circuit as a

function of time. Before going to the method-II,

we need to learn a very important concept related

to electrical circuit or network. This concept is not

only used to solve the problems of R-C circuit but

you can apply it any type of electrical circuit.

Y U ASK

WE ANSWER

Do you have a question that you just cant get

answered?

Use the vast expertise of our mtg team to get to the

bottom of the question. From the serious to the silly,

the controversial to the trivial, the team will tackle the

questions, easy and tough.

The best questions and their solutions will be printed in

this column each month.

cannot exist at the same place having exactly the

same properties. Electron, proton, neutron etc.

are fermions.

Bosons have whole number spins. These particles

can exist at same place and in same physical state.

Photons, mesons etc. are bosons.

Q2. We can tune radio only on a AC source, then

phones?

Seetharaman

Ans. Tuner receive a mixture of signals of different

frequencies and able us to choose a particular

frequency whereas detector is responsible for

separating audio information from the carrier

wave. For AM signals, this can be done with a

diode but for FM signals, the detector circuits

are specially designed. Detectors are basically

demodulators, FM demodulators convert

frequency variations of the input signal into

amplitude variations at the output.

Q3. Why does pizza develop a nicely melted cheese

surface, with lightly browned spots, if topped

with real cheese but not with fat-free cheese?

Harlin Engtipi, Guwahati

of infrared radiation from the oven walls

surrounding it, and convection of hot air across

its top (especially if the air is being forced to

move by a fan). As thermal energy is gradually

transferred to the interior, largely to cook the

dough, the cheese is supposed to melt uniformly

over the top and then lightly brown. The browning

occurs where bubbles form in the cheese (where

water vaporizes to form bubbles of steam inside

during bubble growth, the tops can absorb enough

thermal energy to turn brown.

If the pizza is topped with fat-free cheese, the water

evaporates very quickly from the cheese, and the

dried-out individual strands of cheese never melt

and fuse, but instead just burn. To remedy this,

fat-free or low-fat cheese is sprayed with an oil

film when the pizza is prepared. Then the oil film

slows the evaporation of water from the cheese, so

that melting, fusing, bubbling, and browning can

all occur.

Q4. When the sky is overcast, why is snow at the

horizon brighter than the adjacent sky?

Nustrat Khan, Hyderabad

brighter than the adjacent sky for three reasons

(1) Drops in the cloud scatter sunlight primarily

in a forward direction, and so you intercept more

light from the overhead portion of the overcast

sky than a portion near the horizon. Thus, the sky

near the horizon is comparatively dark.

(2) Snow scatters light strongly in all directions,

and so you intercept significant light from snow

near the horizon. Thus that snow is bright.

(3) When you view a border separating regions

differing in brightness, your visual system will

enhance that difference in order to make the

border more distinct.

Q5. Why are the hairs on polar bears hollow?

Deepika Tyagi, Surat

and infrared portions of sunlight, because those

portions are reflected and transmitted down into

the pelt to reach the skin. There it is absorbed which

increases the thermal energy of the skin. (The

ultraviolet portion of sunlight is also absorbed by

the hairs, but ultraviolet light contributes little to

the warming of a bear). The thermal energy of the

skin is maintained partially because the hairs are

hollow and conduct thermal energy poorly. (The

notion that the hollow hairs somehow function as

optical fibres is just a myth.)
