A closely wound solenoid of 2000 turns and area of cross -section 1.5 x 10^{-4} m^{2} carries a current of 2.0 A. It is suspended through its centre and perpendicular to its length, allowing it to turn in a horizontal plane in a uniform magnetic field 5 x 10^{-2} T making an angle of 30^{o} with axis of the solenoid. The torque on the solenoid will be
3 x 10^{-3} N-m
1.5 x 10^{-3} N-m
1.5 x 10^{-2} N-m
1.5 x 10^{-2} N-m

A student measures the distance traversed in free fall of a body, initially at rest in a given time. He uses this data to estimate g, the acceleration due to gravity. If the maximum percentage errors in measurement of the distance and the time are e_{1} and e_{2} respectively, the percentage error in the estimation of g is
e_{1} - e_{2}
e_{1} + 2e_{2}
e_{1}+ e_{2}
e_{1}+ e_{2}
The dependence of acceleration due to gravity g on the distance r from the centre of the earth assumed to be a sphere of radius R of uniform density is as shown in figure below
The correct figure is

If C_{p}- C_{v} denote the specific heats (per unit mass) of an ideal gas of molecular weight M
Here R is the molar gas constant
C_{p}-C_{V} = R/M^{2}
