Significant figures and error analysis

1. The limit of accuracy of a measuring instrument is equal to the least

count of the instrument.

2. When a quantity is squared, the number of significant digits is not

squared.

Algebraic operations with significant figures

General rule-

Final result shall have significant figure corresponding to the number of

significant digits in the least accurate variable.

(i) Addition and subtraction

Suppose in the measured values to be added or subtracted the

least number of significant digits after the decimal is n. Then

in the sum or difference also, the number of significant digits after

the decimal should be n.

Example: 1.9 + 2.77 + 3.456 = 8.126 | 8.1

(to correct significant digits)

Here the least number of significant digits after the decimal is one.

Hence, the result will be 8.1 (when rounded off to smallest number

of decimal places.)

Example: 17.36 - 11.4 = 5.96 | 6.0

(to correct significant digits)

Lakshya Educare

3 SPECIAL MODULE (PHYSICS)

(ii) Multiplication or division

Suppose in the measured values to be multiplied or divided the

least number of significant digits be n. Then in the product or

quotient, the number of significant digits should also be n.

Example: 2.5 u 13.41 = 33.525 | 34

(to correct significant digits)

The least number of significant digits in the measured values are

two. Hence the result when rounded off to two significant digits

become 34. Therefore the answer is 34.

3570

Example: = 313.157895 | 313

11.4

3. When two quantities are multiplied, the maximum relative error in the

result is the sum of maximum relative errors in those two quantities.

4. When we are considering result involving quotient of two quantities, the

maximum relative error in the result is the sum of maximum relative

errors in those quantities.

the body but it simply means that the net force (resultant of any number

of forces) acting on the body is zero.

3. Mass of a body is a measure of the resistance offered by the body to the

change in velocity of the body. In other words, it is a measure of inertia

of the body.

4. Whenever a body loses a contact with the surface, the normal force

becomes zero. In problems where a body loses contact, this concept

should be used.

5. Area under the force time graph gives magnitude of impulse of the given

force in given time.

6. Frictional force varies depending on whether the body is in motion or not

- If the body is at rest with respect to the surface then f < P s N

- If the body is just in motion with respect to the surface f P sN

- If the body is in motion with respect to the surface f Pk N

Collision

1. When a massive body suffers one dimensional elastic collision with a

stationary light body, the velocity of massive body remains practically

unchanged but light body begins to move with a velocity which is double

the velocity of massive body.

2. Momentum and total energy are conserved during elastic collisions.

3. The coefficient of restitution gives you an idea of the degree to which

kinetic energy is conserved.

4. When kinetic energy is conserved one can either use kinetic energy

equation or the coefficient of restitution formula.

5. In the perfectly inelastic collision, the relative velocity of the bodies after

the collision is zero.

Work, Power, Energy

1. For conservative forces work done along a closed path is Zero.

2. For non conservative forces work done along a closed path is not equal

to zero.

3. Work done against friction depends on the path followed. Viscosity and

friction are non-conservative forces.

4. Work done by electric force and gravitational force does not depends

upon path followed. They are called as conservative forces.

5. Work done depends on the frame of reference.

6. Conservative laws can be used to describe the behavior as mechanical

system even when the exact nature of forces is not known.

7. Kinetic energy is always +ve

8. Kinetic energy of a body cannot change if the force acting on a body is

perpendicular to the instantaneous velocity.

9. In case of conservative force (power is not dissipated), work does not

depend upon the path followed. It depends upon initial and final

position of the body

dA L

Here, L is the angular momentum of the planet about sun.

2. Most of the problems of gravitation are solved by two conservation laws:

(i) Conservation of angular momentum about Sun and

(ii) Conservation of mechanical (potential + kinetic) energy [If drag is

negligible]

Hence, the following two equations are used in most of the cases.

mvr sin T = constant (i)

1 GMm

mv2 - = constant (ii)

2 r

At aphelion and perihelion position T = 900

Hence, equation (i) can be written as,

mvr sin 90o = constant

or mvr = constant (iii)

Further, since mass of the planet (m) also remains constant, equation (i)

can also be written as

vr sin T = constant (iv)

or v1r1 = v2r2 ( T = 900)

? r1 ! r2

v1 v2

3. Applying the above mentioned conservation laws in aphelion and

perihelion positions with

12. Trajectory of a body projected from point A in the direction AB with

different initial velocities: Let a body be projected from point A with

velocity v in the direction AB. For different values of v the paths are

different. Here are the possible cases

(i) If v = 0, path is straight line from A to O

(ii) If 0 v v 0 , path is an ellipse with centre o of the earth as a focus

(iii) If v = v0, path is a circle with O as the centre

A o v 0 v v e

(v) If v = ve, body escapes from the gravitational pull of the earth and

path is a parabola

Note:

1. From case (i) to (iv) total energy of the

body is negative. Hence these are the

closed orbits. For case (v) total energy

is zero and for case (vi) total energy is

positive. In these two cases orbits are

open.

2. If v is not very large the elliptical orbit

will intersect the earth and the body

will fall back to earth.

13. If the rate of rotation of the earth increases, the value of acceleration due

to gravity decreases at all places on the surfaces of the earth except of

poles.

5. The focal length of a lens depends upon P . Actually v P 1 . The

f

refractive index will be different for different colours. Hence the focal

length of a lens is different for different wavelengths. For red colour it is

maximum and for violet colour it is minimum irrespective of the nature

of lens.

Lakshya Educare

20 SPECIAL MODULE (PHYSICS)

6. If a lens is made of a number of layers of

different

refractive indices, then for a given wavelength

of light, the

lens will have as many focal lengths as the

number of P 's .

7. When an equi-convex lens of focal length f is cut into two equal parts by

a horizontal plane as shown in figure below,

then focal length of each part remains the same

but intensity of image formed by each part is

reduced to half.

8. When a equi-convex lens is cut into the two equal parts by a vertical

plane CD (see figure). Then the focal length of

each part (f) becomes twice. i.e., f = 2f

(A) The lens should be thin so that the separation between the two

refracting surface should be small.

(b) The medium on either side of the lens should be same.

If any of the limitation is violated then we have to use the refraction at

the curved surface formula for both the surfaces.

that on left side of it is air ( P1 = 1) and that on the right side is water P 2 .

decreases. But nature of the lens remain unchanged.

(B) If P P m , thenis infinite. So focal length will become infinite

(C) When the lens is placed in a medium for which P is greater then

that of the lens, the nature of the lens changes.

For illustration, in figure A, the currents going in arms AB, AD, and AL

In Fig. B, the currents, in arm AB and AL will be same as the end points
