List of Physics Scientists and Their Inventions

There is no doubt that all the scientific discoveries and inventions till date have revolutionized every aspect of our life. It has strongly influenced the way we think and live our life. Due to scientific inventions we were able to find answer to our question which we thought we can never answer, like people used to say that humans cannot fly but due to the advancements of scientific inventions we can now fly in the air with the help of an airplane.

Practise This Question

One end of a copper rod of length 1.0 m and area of cross-section 103 is immersed in boiling water and the other end in ice. If the coefficient of thermal conductivity of copper is 92cal/msC and the latent heat of ice is 8×104cal/kg, then the amount of ice which will melt in one minute is
