    The forces of repulsion between two parallel wires carrying currents in opposite direction.

    The weight of a satellite and the centripetal force keeping the satellite in orbit.

    The forces of attraction between two gas molecules passing near each other.

    The forces of attraction between an electron and a proton in a hydrogen atom.

  • Q3

    Three blocks of masses 2.5 kg, 1.5 kg and 2.0 kg on a smooth surface are connected by two inelastic strings and pulled by a force of 15.0 N. The tensions in the strings connecting the blocks are T1and T2. What are the values of the tension T1and T2?

    Question Image

    T1 = 5.00 N; T2 = 10.0 N

    T1 = 2.50 N; T2 = 3.00 N

    T1 = 8.75 N; T2 = 5.00 N

    T1 = 7.50 N; T2 = 7.50 N

  • Q4
