At a time when the distance between the rockets is observed to be , the clocks of the rockets and the Earth are synchronized to t = 0s. The time of collision (in seconds) of the two rockets as measured in rocket As frame is . What is x?

Q8. Two parallel rails of a railroad track are insulated from each other and from the ground.

The distance between the rails is 1 meter. A voltmeter is electrically connected between the rails. Assume the vertical component of the earth՚s magnetic field to the 0.2 gauss.

What is the voltage developed between the rails when a train travels at a speed of 180 km/ h along the track? Give the answer in milli-volts.

Q9. Consider a simple pendulum in three-dimensional space. It consists of a string length cm and bob mass m = 15kg attached to it as shown in the figure below The acceleration due to gravity is downwards as shown in the figure with a magnitude .
