You need to calculate the maxheight attained from ground....you might have calculated it from top of the tower perhaps.....anyway don't worry it happens....exam pressure.....

Can anyone tell the solution of Q4. KVPY SA?

Anoushka Gupta - 11 months ago

Log in to reply

Apply Cauchy Schwarz inequality on LHS,you will observe that LHS is greater than equal to the RHS.Then apply the equality condition Cauchy Schwarz inequality( in Cauchy Schwarz inequality,the equality exists when the ratio of terms is constant).You will get that 1=a=b.Therefore (1,1) is the only solution.

Thanks a lot!

Anoushka Gupta - 11 months ago

Log in to reply

@Anoushka Gupta It can be done without the inequality also-

\((1+a+b)^2=3(1+a^2+b^2)\)

\(\iff 2a^2+2b^2-2a-2b-2ab+2=0\)

\(\iff (a-1)^2+(b-1)^2+(a-b)^2=0\)

Hence, \(a=b=1\) only.

Kindly confirm the answer for the conditions for current to flow in the wire connected to circuits.

I marked “current will flow if E1/R1 not equal to E2/R2.”

I know that if the wire connects 2 points, then those 2 points potential is same. But I got confused during exam and trusted "Kirchoff's law" for junctions.

Anoushka Gupta - 11 months, 1 week ago

Even I marked the same option :(

Hrishik Mukherjee - 11 months, 1 week ago

I barely completed the paper.. I don't remember exactly what I marked, what questions I marked.. So I didn't count..

How much are you scoring?

A E - 11 months, 1 week ago

Log in to reply

To make things simple think this way....the circuits are initially separate..consider any one of the circuit.... current is e/r....now connect them write Kirchoff's voltage law for the same circuit......did you find that the current again remains the same......so what can be concluded is that current did not flow through the wire.....

Prakhar Bindal - 11 months, 1 week ago

I expect 73.25 after the correct ans key...and you know in 2014 someone had scored 78 from our school and got air 8!!!!.

Spandan Senapati - 11 months, 1 week ago

Log in to reply

@Spandan Senapati actually 2014 paper was quite tough (cutoff was only 42). so scoring 78 in that is indeed an achievement

i got rank 59 last year coz the paper was slightly easier last year than 2014 . One of my friend got 82 last year still ended up on rank 14
