 # Specific Heat of Solids

Specific Heat of Solids For solids and liquids, we define the specific heat capacity as the quantity of energy that will raise the temperature of unit mass of the body by 1K. When a solid is heated through a small range of temperature, its volume remains more or less constant. Therefore, specific heat of a Read more about Specific Heat of Solids[…] # Menelaw’s Theorem

Proof: Let A (x₁, y₁), B (x₂, y₂) and C (x₃, y₃) be Let the transversal be ax + by + c = 0 BD/DC = The ratio in Read more about Menelaw’s Theorem[…] # Ceva’s Theorem

Ceva’s Theorem Theorem: If the lines joining any point P, to the vertices A, B, C of a triangle meet the opposite Sides in D, E, F respectively then (BD.CE.AF)/(DC.EA.FB)=1 Proof: Let A (x₁, y₁), B (x₂, y₂), and C (x₃, y₃) be the vertices. Let us consider point P is (0, 0) We know Read more about Ceva’s Theorem[…] # Elastic Properties of Matter

Elastic Properties of Matter 1) Elasticity: The property of matter by virtue of which a body tends to regain its original shape and size after the removal of deforming force is called as Elasticity. 2) Plasticity: The property of matter by virtue of which it does not regain its original shape and size after the Read more about Elastic Properties of Matter[…] # Inverse Trigonometric Functions – Form f(f⁻¹(x))

Inverse Trigonometric Functions – Form f(f⁻¹(x)) Function of the form f(f⁻¹(x)): where f(x) is Trigonometric Function (i)Consider function f(x) = sin(sin⁻¹x).
