Newton’s Rings | Theory and Formula |

Newton’s rings

The thickness of the slowly increasing air film will form between the flat glass plate and the convex surface of the flat convex lens. The thickness of the air film will be zero at the point of contact and increases symmetrically as we move radially from the point of contact. The monochromatic wavelength light "λ" is allowed to fall normally on the lens with the help of a glass plate "P", which is held at 45 ° on the incident monochromatic beam. A portion of the incident light is reflected on the convex surface of the lens and the remaining light is transmitted through the air film. Then, a portion of this transmitted light is reflected from the upper surface of the glass plate (G).Both reflected rays combine to produce an interference pattern in the form of alternating flashes and a deep concentric ring known as Newton's rings.

Newton first demonstrated and demonstrated these rings. The rings are spherical because the air film has spherical symmetry. These rings can be viewed through the mobile microscope .

Newton’s rings by reflected light theory

Let's discuss the interference conditions for bright and dark stripes and also the space between Newton's rings. To obtain the relationship between the radius of Newton's ring and the radius of curvature of the lens, consider the diagram Let the lens contact the glass plate at O and let the radius of curvature of the lens be R. Let go of a perpendicular ray. Partially reflected and partially transmitted in 'P'. The transmitted light is again reflected on the glass plate g in q. Let the thickness of the air film be PQ (= t) at P and the radius of the Newton ring at Q be rn. The reflected beam in Q undergoes a phase change different from the change or path λ / 2. The total path difference between two rays reflected in P 'and is Q' is

Biasing of p–n Junction | Forward and Reverse-biased |

Biasing the p-n junction means applying some external voltage to both sides of the p-n junction. Reverse-biased junction and forward-biased junction are two types of biased junction. You should have also good understanding of  N-Type and P-Type Semiconductor before moving towards this topic.

Biasing of p–n Junction Biasing of a p–n junction means uses of some external voltage across the two sides of the p–n junction. It is divided into two groups 
Forward-biased junction : When the p-side of junction  is connected to the positive terminal of a battery and the n-side of junction is connected to the negative terminal, the p–n junction is said to be a forward-biased junction. Reverse-biased junction :If the positive terminal of the battery is connected to the n-side of junction and the negative terminal on the p-side, the p–n junction is said to be a reverse-biased junction.Now we will see about forward and reverse-biased junction in detail.

If you are search about how to study science so i am going to share with you some tips that help you to study science in effective way. In this post, we are going to see what you should keep in mind while studying science. Because of which you can complete the syllabus of your science subject in the least time and comfortably and can  study  well with full concentration. So I will tell you five such tips with which you can study science comfortably. 

How to study scienceWhether you are a student of class 10, whether in class 12 or any class, while studying science, these five tips will help you to get good score in science as well as improving your interests in science .

Goal Setting : By Goal Setting, I mean that when you sit for study, you have to set this target that today I will read so much chapter or today I will get up after reading so much content.This thing will do the work of positive motivation and will push you that we have to study till then. Until my target is achieved.
