Q- At a sand and gravel plant, sand is falling off a conveyor and onto a conical pile at a rate of 10 cubic feet per minute.  The diameter of the base of the cone is 3 times the altitude.  At what rate is the height of the pile changing when the pile is 15 feet high?

Magnetic Force

Q- A rectangular coil of wire, 22.0 cm by 35.0 cm and carrying a current 1.40 A, is oriented with the plane of its loop perpendicular to a uniform 1.50 T magnetic field in to the plane of the coil.

a) Calculate the net force and torque which the magnetic field exerts on the coil.

b) The coil is rotated through a 30.0º angle about the axis passing through center and parallel to smaller sides.  Calculate the net force and torque which the magnetic field exerts on the coil.


Refraction Through A Prism

Q- A horizontal beam of light that is incident on an equilateral prism. The base of the prism is horizontal. The prism (n = 1.40) is surrounded by a liquid whose index of refraction is 1.60. Determine the angle of emergence from the other surface, that is the exiting light makes with the normal to the right face of the prism.
