NEET Questions Solved

NEET - 2014

Light with an energy flux of 25 x 104 Wm-2 falls on a perfectly reflecting surface at normal incidence. If the surface area is 15cm2 the average force exerted on the surface is

(a)1.25x10-6N

(b)2.50x10-6N

(c)1.20x10-6N

(d)3.0x10-6N

Energy flux=25x104/sm2

Force on unit area= momentum transferred in unit time on area=25x104/C

=250x104/3x108=8.3x10-4N/m2

Force on the 15x10-4m2 area 

=8.3x10-4N/m2x15x10-4m2 


=124.5x10-8N=1.2x10-6N
