Show how negative results obtained from Michelson — Morley experiment were interpreted ?


What is time dilation is special relativity ? Obtain an expression for time dilation in regard to the time interval between two events measured from two different inertia frames

(b) A rocket ship is 100 meters long on the ground . When it is in flight its length is 99 meters to an observer on the ground ? What is its speed ?


Deduce the velocity at which the mass of a particle becomes 1.25 times its rest mass (C=3×108m/s)


Q2 (a) What are cardinal point of a co-axial lens system ? state their properties and show their positions in the diagram . Illustrate the use of these points in the formation if images by the lens system.


Explain the term : (i) reflection (ii) reverberation and (iii)  Echo of sound energy and then shown graphically , the ‘nature of  growth and decay” of sound energy in a hall due to  reverberation (Give rate of absorption of energy by walls = 1/4ECA, where E is energy density , C is velocity of sound  and A is total absorption).

(b)What are the properties of ultrasonic waves ?
