Galileo was punished by the church for teaching that sun is stationary and the earth moves around it. His opponents held the view that earth is stationary and sun moves around it. If the absolute motion has no meaning, are two viewpoints equally correct or equally wrong?

1) here what is the important thing is frame of reference. when we see from earth frame the sun is rotating around earth


2). when we see from sun frame the earth is rotating around sun

3) when we see them from indepedent of both frames. like we are seeing galaxy of sun system then we come to know that the earth is rotating around the sun.


so from both of point view is different galileo saw that  from indepedent of two frames. the church saw that in earth frame.

that is a nice question

Sir,The final velocity of a particle falling freely under gravity is given by V^2-u^2=2gx where x is the distance covered. If V=18kmph g=1000cms^-2 x=120cm the u = ms^-1
Just put all the values simply to get the value of u. Therefore, V^2 – u^2 = 2*g*x (18 * 1000 * 100/60*60)^2 = u^2 + 2*1000*120 u^2 = 250000 – 240000 u^2 = 10,000 u = 100 cm/s

Is at the minimum deviation, angle of deviation is equal to angle of prism??
No that’s not always true. The minimum deviation is given when angle of incidence and angle of refraction would be equal. And that is given as: S = 2i – A hENCE not same with prism angle.

it takes a block twice as long to slide down a plane inclined at 45 to the horizontal as it would take for it to slide down the same plane had the plane had the plane been frictionless....
Let coefficient of friction be q then T=√2d/gsin 45 nT = √2d/gsin45- qgcos45 Equationg this we get q= tan 45( n*n -1/ n* n) On solving we get q= tan 45(2*2-1/2*2) (4-1/ 4) (3/4) Cheers!!!
