What effect does only distance travelled have on light?

1 Answer

Answer :

Light, like any other form of electromagnetic radiation, decreases in intensity the further it travels from the point of emission. The mathematical relation that describes this is an inverse square- that is to say the intensity of the radiation at distance x is proportional to the reciprocal of the square of x. This describes aggregate behavior. An individual photon or a collimated beam (like a laser) does not decay over distance according to the inverse-square relation, but some other.

Description : 2 bus start from A & B respectively and travel towards each other at a speed of 150 km/hr and 120 km/hr respectively. By the time they meet, the first bus has travelled by 300km more than the second. The distance between A & B is a) 2700 b) 2800 c) 2750 d) 2457

Last Answer : A At the time of meeting, Let the distance travelled by the second bus be xkm Then distance covered by the 1st bus is (x+300)km x/120= (x+300) /150 150x = 120(x+300) 150x = 120x +36000 30x = ... X=36000/30 X=1200 So the distance covered between A & B =(x+x+300) =(1200+1200+300) =2700km.

Description : Mr.Aneesh left for city 1 from city 2 at 3.00 pm. He travelled at the speed of 60km/hr for 1 and half hours. After that the speed was reduced to 15 km/hr.

Last Answer :  A Distance travelled in 1ST hour =55 km Speed of the van increases by 5 kmph after every one hour. Hence, distance travelled in 2nd hour =60 km distance travelled in 3rd hour =65 km and so on Total distance travelled =(55+60+……..+(8 terms)) =8/2(2*55+(8-1)5) =4(110+35) =580km
