Which of the following pairs does not have same dimensions?


ANSWER

moment of inertia and moment of force


SOLUTION
Moment of force  $$(\tau)$$ is equal to the product of moment of inertia $$(I)$$ and the angular acceleration $$(\alpha)$$ of the rotating body.
$$\therefore$$       $$\tau  = I \alpha$$
Hence  the dimensions of moment of force and moment of inertia must be different.

Q3 Single Correct Medium
A student performs an experiment to determine the Young's modulus of a wire, exactly $$2\ m$$ along. by Searle's method. In a particular reading, the student measures the extension in the length of the wire to be $$0.8\ mm$$ with an uncertainty of $$0.05\ mm$$ at a load of exactly $$1.0\ kg$$. The student also measures the diameter of the wire to be $$0.4\ mm$$ with an uncertainty of $$0.01\ mm$$. Take $$g = 9.8\ ms^{-2}$$ (exact). The Young's modulus obtained from the reading is
  • A. $$(2.0\pm 0.3) \times 10^{11} N\ m^{-2}$$
  • B. $$(2.0\pm 0.2) \times 10^{11} N\ m^{-2}$$
  • C. $$(2.0\pm 0.1) \times 10^{11} N\ m^{-2}$$
  • D. $$(2.0\pm 0.05) \times 10^{11} N\ m^{-2}$$
