For Q15:

Resolve the 4 N force that is slanted and this is shown as red line arrows in the diagram.

When the respective red line arrows are translated horizontally and vertically to overlap the vertical 3 N force and horizontal 4 N force as shown as yellow line arrows in the diagram.

The non-overlap part in the horizontal and vertical direction is the components of the resultant force.

For Q28:

Note X and Y are in phase (make sure you know why). So Y will also travel downwards but the amplitude of Y should be less than 2 m.

For Q32:

Since the wires are in series with the kettle, you can form an equation using V = IRtotal as the first equation.
The power dissipated in the circuit is P = I2Rtotal and you use this equation to form the second equation. You have 2 unknowns with 2 equations, so you can solve the problem.

Q34

I attach the above diagram from the following link.

https://www.swtc.edu/Ag_Power/electr...l_circuits.htm

You can work out the current I1 and I2 or see the link.

Next work out the ratio of the resistances with respect to the ratio of current in each resistor.

You can then use similar analysis to attempt Q34.

Hmmmmm... well the thing is I know what todo but IDK which value to sub in .....
What I did was I find the I=10A ... after that step then I m confuse.....

The current in the kettle is 10 A.
Can you show how do you get the current as 10 A?

You can use Kirchhoff’s voltage rule to write an equation of the potential drop through the circuit to deduce the p.d. across the kettle.

One more thing, you should note that

Rtotal = 1.0 Ω + R
where R is the resistance of kettle.

pwer=2.4kW
voltagr=240
so P=VI
2.4k/240=10A

Ok, have a look at post #8 or the quote below.

Rtotal = 1.0 Ω + R

where R is the resistance of kettle.

When you multiply the current to the equation of total resistance, what do you get?

How do you interpret IR? and IRtotal?

alrite i got it!!! so just find the powerwhich is...
P=I^2R
=10^2(0.50+0.50)
=100W
So 2400W-100W=2300W
to find V
P=VI
2300W=V(10)
V=230V

As it may be long forgotten as no one was answering. It may be better you ask in the physics forum.

An old-fashioned 60W lamp converts 95% of its energy supply into heat. A 4.0W modern lamp
has the same power output of light as the old-fashioned lamp.
What is the efficiency of the modern lamp?
A 5.0% B 6.7% C 75% D 95%

ans c
can explain ?

For the old-fashioned lamp, how much power is converted into the useful output? Say x useful power.

For the efficiency of the modern lamp,

For the efficiency of the modern lamp,
so what is x?

so what is x?
If 95% of the energy is dissipated as heat, what is the % of useful output?

efficiency of 60W lamp is 5% as 95% is heat energy. So only 3W is power output. Therefore power output of 4W lamp is the same 3W as stated by question. 3/4 X100= 75%
