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.

Use the concept of deviation caused by a convex lens. A ray of light reaching the lens at a distance 'y' from the optical axis suffers a deviation of delta=y/f . Now, the lenses are seperated by distance l by which you know the rate of change of slope which is delta/l. Set up the differential equation and you would get the result. @Richeek Das

- 2 years, 6 months ago

Log in to reply

Thanks a lot. I didn't know that deviation formula ∆ = y/f . Did you just derive it while doing this problem?

Are you in FIITJEE too?

Thanks again!

- 2 years, 6 months ago

Log in to reply

If I get 99.6 percentile in JEE Main January and again 99.6 percentile in JEE Main April, then due to different number of students appearing in two shifts,My AIR will be different,How will NTA then normalize this?Will they combine AIR of both or the NTA score ?Wouldnt it be unfair if they combine NTA score(for merit list) as the total students appearing will be different.

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

The total number of students appearing for JEE Mains 2019 will be the maximum of the number of students appeared on Jan and appearing on April. So your AIR won't be different as the total no.of students is the maximum appearing from the two shifts. Basically if 3 lacs appeared in Jan and 3.1 will appear in April, your rank will be out of 3.1 lac students and not 3 lacs. That is the reason they haven't revealed the rank after JEE mains Jan and so have decided to release the rank after JEE mains April. They won't combine your rank or anything from the two shifts. This is what I can guess with logic as of now :P

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

That implies, Most probably my rank would degrade :P

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

Your best percentile will be taken from the two shifts. AIR will depend on the number of students appearing for JEE Mains April, you have time so it's in your hand :P

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

If this is really the case then, this is the worst system ever devised for an examination of this scale. Are they treating it as a joke or what :O BTW, I won't even appear for April JEE Main :P

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

Really. You are correct. Number of student changes but still :((.... I dont see any intelligent work or mathematics in it

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

I guarantee that this system will get removed after 2019

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

It seems nonsensical... I mean... two JEEM system is okay... But this percentile normalization is bogus! I mean they set our percentile as per JEE Mains Jan version and then they use it for JEE Mains April(Where no. of studs are diff..), Now we are ahead of certain amount of students which gives us our percentile. What is the guarantee that our percentile wont increase if more students gave? It might be that the extra students who are giving are not giving JEE seriosuly!! Isnt it?

I tried it this way. Taking the lens to be thin. I found the number of lens it will overcome until it reaches 3.925cm . Now taking the equivalent of all those lenes we ge the point where the ray would have passed if there were no further lens cutting the principal axis (focal pt) . Ebar....Using perpendicular/base.... =Tan theta(theta is angle b/w ray and principal axis). We can find out the height. If I am wrong somewhere.... Plz correct me. My answer is not matching.

Hey.... We know that at freezing point.... The liquid is in equilibrium with the freezed solid. How can we calculate how much water has freezed?(Random qs.... It just came to my mind..... Idk :P)>> is it the same way we do for others... Like we need alpha and K?

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

In case of pure water, the whole of it will convert into ice at its freezing point. If there is any impurity in the water then the amount that has freezed can be calculated using Kf provided del Tf ( which says whether the freezing point has decreased/increased) is given. I hope it is clear?

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

Ya, But why do we say there's a dynamic equilibrium if whole of the pure water converts?

- 2 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

At freezing point, water starts to freeze then the temp will change only when whole water is converted to ice. Water freezes at the same rate as ice melts that's why there's a dynamic equilibrium . In my previous comment, I wrote that whole of it will convert into ice at freezing point was a mistake, sorry.

Log in to reply

@Md Zuhair Yes I am from CBSE board, the marking is alright but getting above 95 isn't easy at all!!! If you've solved the ten years questions then you must be knowing the question pattern . I can't say whether you'll get more or less than your expected marks because it depends on many factors like who will check your paper, a strict/lenient teacher and all other factors. Just study hard and give your best!

Ok.. but most of the cases.. I see KVPY SX toppers or even qualifiers go for IIT .. and you will get to learn physics in ECE or EE.. so you can take that up.. because thats based upon physics totally... CSE is kind of something else ..... not what we did for JEE till 12th.. but its something very different
