a cube of ice floats partly in water and partly in oil .find the ratio of the volume of ice immersed in water to thatin oil. specific gravity of oil is 0.8 and that of ice is 0.9

Dear aastha

wieght of ice cube should be equal to the sum of wieght of oil replaced and  wight of water replaced by ice cube

let the volume in water is v1 and in oil is v2

0.9 * g * (v1+v2) =1* g*v1 + 0.8 * g* v2

or  0.9(v1/v2 +1) = v1/v2 +0.8

or v1/v2 =1

a ball is dropped on the ground from a height 10cm .if coifficient of restitution is 0.4, then find the height to which ball is rebound ?
Final velocity would be, v = root( 0 + 2g*10/100) = > root(2) m/s. From coeff. of restitution, v’ = ev = > 0.4*v Now let h be the height it rebounced then, 0^2 = (0.4v)^2 – 2gh h =...
