One end of a string of length l is connected to a particle of mass ‘m’ and the other end is connected to a small peg on a smooth horizontal table. If the particle moves in circle with speed ‘v’, the net force on the particle (directed towards centre) will be (T represents the tension in the string)
T
The x and y coordinates of the particle at any time are x = 5t – 2t^{2} and y = 10t respectively, where x and y are in meters and t in seconds. The acceleration of the particle at t = 2 s is

Suppose the charge of a proton and an electron differ slightly. One of them is –e, the other is (e + Δe). If the net of electrostatic force and gravitational force between two hydrogen atoms placed at a distance d (much greater than atomic size) apart is zero, then Δe is of the order of [Given mass of hydrogen
