The Solar constant is defined as the energy incident per unit area per second. The dimensional formula for solar constant is


ANSWER

$$[ML^0T^{-3}]$$


SOLUTION
Energy incident per unit area, per second in dimensions
$$\displaystyle =\dfrac {Energy}{Area\times second}=\dfrac {ML^2T^{-2}}{L^2T}=ML^oT^{-3}$$

Q1 Single Correct Medium
A highly rigid cubical block $$A$$ of small mass $$M$$ and side $$L$$ is fixed rigidly on to another cubical block of same dimensions and of low modulus of rigidity $$\eta$$ such that the lower face of $$A$$ completely covers the upper face $$B$$. The lower face of $$B$$ is rigidly held on a horizontal surface. A small force $$F$$ is applied perpendicular to one of the side face of $$A$$. After the force is withdrawn, block $$A$$ executes small oscillations, the time period of which is given by :
  • A. $$2\pi \sqrt{M\eta L}$$
  • B. $$2\pi \sqrt{\dfrac{M\eta}{ L}}$$
  • C. $$2\pi \sqrt{\dfrac{ML}{\eta}}$$
  • D. $$2\pi \sqrt{\dfrac{M}{L\eta}}$$

Q3 Subjective Medium
The pressure on a square plate is measured by measuring the force on the plate and the length of the sides of the plate by using the formula $$P = F/l^2$$. If the maximum errors in the measurement of force and length are $$4\%$$ and $$2\%$$, respectively, then what is the maximum error in the measurement of pressure?

Q4 Single Correct Medium
In the equation $$\displaystyle \left( \frac { 1 }{ P\beta  }  \right) =\frac { y }{ { k }_{ B }T } $$, where $$P$$ is the pressure, $$y$$ is the distance, $$\displaystyle { k }_{ B }$$ is Boltzmann constant and $$T$$ is the temperature. Dimensions of $$\displaystyle \beta $$ are:
  • A. $$\displaystyle { M }^{ 0 }{ L }^{ 2 }{ T }^{ 0 }$$
  • B. $$\displaystyle { M }^{ 1 }{ L }^{ -1 }{ T }^{ -2 }$$
