Velocity: Definition and Measurement

Velocity Speed in a particular direction is called Velocity. The units for velocity can be implied from the definition to be meters/second or in general......

Vibratory Motion

Vibratory motion is a type of motion in which a particle moves to and fro about a fixed point. It occurs at a fixed point as......

Periodic Motion: Experiment

Periodic motion is a physics term meaning the repetition of the same motion in the same amount of time. Observe the motion of the hand......

Translational Motion

Translational Motion Translational motion is the movement of an object from one point to another through space. An example of this is a bullet fired......

Define Triatomic Molecule (Non-linear type)

A triatomic Molecule non-linear molecule may rotate, about the three mutually perpendicular axes, as shown in Figure. Therefore, it possesses three degrees of freedom of rotation......

Define Triatomic Molecule (Linear type)

In the case of the triatomic molecule of linear type, the centre of mass lies at the central atom. It, therefore, behaves like a diamotic......

Define Diatomic Molecule

The diatomic molecule can rotate about an axis at right angles to its own axis. Hence it has two degrees of freedom of rotational motion......

Applications of Refraction of Sound

It is easier to hear the sound during night than during day-time. During day time, the upper layers of air are cooler than the layers......

What is Refraction of Sound

Refraction of sound or waves involves a change towards sound or waves as they pass in one medium to an additional. Refraction of the path......

Applications of Reflection of Sound Waves

Applications of reflection of sound waves (i) Whispering gallery: The famous whispering gallery at St. Paul’s Cathedral is a circular shaped chamber whose walls repeatedly......

What is Reflection of Sound?

The reflection of sound follows the law “angle of frequency equals angle of reflection”, it also called the law of reflection. Take two metal tubes......

Characteristics of Progressive Wave

Characteristics of progressive wave: Each particle of the medium executes vibration about its mean position. The disturbance progresses onward from one particle to another. The......
