Question

# A potential divider is used to give outputs of 2V and 3V from a 5V source, as shown in figure. Which combination of resistances, R_{1} , R_{2} and R_{3} gives the correct voltages?

## The correct answer is:

### For resistors in series connection, current (I) is the same through the resistors. In other words, ratio of the voltage drop across each resistor with its resistance is the same.

That is

A block of mass m1 lies on top of fixed wedge as shown in figure-1 and another block of mass m2 lies on top of wedge which is free to move as shown in figure-2. At time t = 0, both the blocks are released from rest from a vertical height h above the respective horizontal surface on which the wedge is placed as shown. There is no frcition between block and wedge in both the figures. Let T1 and T2 be the time taken by block in figure-1 and block in figure-2 respectively to just reach the horizontal surface, then :
