are you asking 2 or 0.5?

It's one of the option

which one? please do say the options.

Can you explain it?

What I think is the conveyor belt is initially at rest. Gravel mass is 0.5 kg. Now given velocity is 2 m / s. So just multiplied using the force formula.

It is, but you need a reason behind it :D

I request others to check and criticize me if I am wrong.

force=momentum*time so momentum is given for unit time (1 second) determine it

AadarshBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So even my answer is correct I believe.

saliniBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the force is nevertheless 0.5N no matter how u speed up

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Momentum is mass*velocity

sry i dint read the question properly so yes first find momentum and then force

I could know that. U can even find such questions in BMA workbook.

AadarshBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yeah. Its actually 9th portion. Still u can try.

Write the net force as: \[\ F_{net}= F  F_{thrust} \] it is F_thurst because the mass in increasing The net force is zero because the system is not increasing or decreasing its velocity, that is the velocity is constant. Now, \[\ F_{thrust}=v\frac{dm}{dt}\] I think it is fairly easy to solve it now :D.

AadarshBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yeah. so my answer is correct.

change in mass per unit time or how much mass is added per second.

Even I will know the use of "d" in formulae in 11th grade. Can anyone explain it in detail?
 2 years ago

gogindBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
d is a symbol for a differential. It represents an infitesimal change of some quantity (you will get to that in calculus). It's like \[\ \Delta \] but infinitely small.

So, its a very tough concept. What about Calculus? I just know 2 words  Integration and Differentiation.

gogindBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Yes that's what you do in Calculus :D. If you are impatient to learn about it I would recommend "Calculus" by Gilbert Strang Link: http://ocw.mit.edu/ans7870/resources/Strang/Edited/Calculus/Calculus.pdf
