Question and Answer

A magician during a show makes a glass lens with \(n_g=1{\cdot}47\)  disappear in a trough of liquid. What is the refractive index of the liquid? Could the liquid be water?


Let \(n_g=\)  ref. index of glass, \(n_l=\)  ref. index of liquid, \(f_l=\)  focal length of liquid
\(\frac 1{f_l}=\left(n_g-1\right)\left[\left(\frac 1{R_1}\right)-\left(\frac 1{R_2}\right)\right]\)
For \(f_l={\infty}\)  (to make glass disappear), \(n_g=n_l\) ,
\(n_l=1{\cdot}47\) , thus it will behave as a plane glass.
No, the liquid can not be water because it’s ref. index is not \(1.33.\)

Figure shows a circular coil of N turns and radius a, connected to a battery of emf ε through a rheostat. The rheostat has a total length L and resistance R. the resistance of the coil is r. A small circular loop of radius a‘ and resistance r‘ is placed coaxially with the coil. The centre of the loop is at a distance x from the centre of the coil. In the beginning, the sliding contact of the rheostat is at the left end and then onwards it is moved towards right at a constant speed v. Find the emf induced in the small circular loop at the instant the contact begins to slide and it has slid through half the length of the rheostat.
