Physics is not a discipline, but a way of looking at the world. See if you can use your sense of the world to explain everyday phenomena.

Recordings that get played speakers can be very detailed, consisting of tens or hundred of distinct sound sources, each of which contribute a continuum of frequency components. Yet there is only one speaker. How is it possible for a single speaker to faithfully reproduce complex sounds?

In atoms, electrons jump between energy levels, and they absorb or radiate energy in the form of light (photons). An electron falls to a lower energy level when it radiates a photon, and jumps to a higher energy level when it absorbs a photon.

Find the wavelength of the photon that radiates when an electron jumps from the \(n = 3\) energy level down to the \(n = 2\) energy level. Where is this photon in the electromagnetic spectrum?

**Assumptions**

- \(h\) (Planck's constant) = \(4.14 \times 10^-15\) eV s.
- \(c\) (Speed of light) = \(3 \times 10^8\) m/s.
- All values are approximate.
- Assume that this is a hydrogen atom.

Suppose that an infinitely long straight current-carrying wire has a uniform linear charge density \(\lambda.\) Let this wire be on the \(y\)-axis of the \(xy\)-plane, and let \(x > 0\) be the distance between the \(y\)-axis and a point \(P\) on the \(xy\)-plane. What is the strength of the electric field at the point \(P?\)

Note: \(\epsilon_0 \) in the choices below denotes the electric constant.

An electron, practically at rest is initially accelerated through a potential difference \(100 \text{ V}\). It then has a de Broglie wavelength of \(x_1\).

It then gets retarded through \(19 \text{ V}\) and has a wavelength of \(x_2\).

A final retardation through \(32 \text{ V}\) changes the wavelength to \(x_3\).

What is \(\displaystyle\frac{x_3-x_2}{x_1}\) as a percentage?
