This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science
related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should
explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments
should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .

Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.

Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

@Steven Chase The answer given in back of the book is in 3 different cases
Like for $l<, l=, l>$
Which is possible.
So the author is. Careful while making them.

@Steven Chase Sir the problem which you have reported ,only that much information is given in the question in book.
I just notice now a solver. Is it you?

@Steven Chase sir i think you have solved my latest problem correctly.
Foolish learner has posted a report on it.
Can you post its solution, whenever you will be free.

@Steven Chase It was solved.

But thankyou so much for for still providing solution

@Steven Chase Have a look on this problem

Log in to reply

This would be a good problem for the E&M Section

@Steven Chase Yes I was thinking that only.

But i want to do it with pen.

Do you want to see my attempt.?

@Steven Chase in some condition there separation can be $\infty$ also may be.

Log in to reply

Yes, if $E = 0$, there is no finite maximum separation

@Steven Chase we are probably neglecting gravitational force,

If we take $G=1$ , the question will become more beautiful.

@Steven Chase i don't know why but, I am not able to think properly what will happen in different cases.

Log in to reply

Neither am I. Many of these problems are like that. I wonder if the authors have been careful enough in preparing them

Log in to reply

For all we know, the solutions might have entirely different forms, depending on the relative strengths of different constants.

Log in to reply

@Steven Chase I think except $E=0$ , there can also be some cases, when there will be $\infty$ separation.

@Steven Chase I am doing, adding the $(W)$work done by electric field and electrostatic force

And then $\frac{dW}{dx}=0$

Log in to reply

@Steven Chase In the meantime have a look on this problem

Log in to reply

@Steven Chase Hello, can you post a analytical solution for this problem

Thanks in advance.

Log in to reply

@Steven Chase Please take a look into this, and sorry for that if it hurt you.

Thanks in advance

Hope I am not disturbing you

@Steven Chase Sir the problem which you have reported ,only that much information is given in the question in book.

I just notice now a solver. Is it you?

Log in to reply

Interesting. No, it's not me

Log in to reply

Oh, I think I missed that the inductors are supposed to be identical. Let me try again with that constraint added

Log in to reply

Ok, that was the problem. I deleted the report. Thanks

Log in to reply

@Steven Chase hello sir ,can you help me in this problem

Or at least give me a reply that “I am busy, sorry i can't help”

It is a request

@Steven Chase are you comfortable with Fluid Mechanics? Can I ask doubt of that topic?

Thanks in advance
