A zoom lens system is a combination of lenses that produces a variable magnification while maintaining fixed object and image positions. The magnification is varied by moving one or more lenses along the axis. While multiple lenses are used in practice to obtain high-quality images, the effect of zooming in on an object can be demonstrated with a simple two-lens system. An object, two converging lenses, and a screen are mounted on an optical bench. The first lens, which is to the right of the object, has a focal length of 5.00 cm, and the second lens, which is to the right of the first lens, has a focal length of 10.0 cm. The screen is to the right of the second lens. Initially, an object is situated at a distance of 7.50 cm to the left of the first lens, and the image formed on the screen has a magnification of +1.00.
(a) Find the distance between the object and the screen.
(b) Both lenses are now moved along their common axis, while the object and the screen maintain fixed positions, until the image formed on the screen has a magnification of +3.00. Find the displacement of each lens from its initial position in (a). Can the lenses be displaced in more than one way?
Zirconium has an HCP crystal structure and a density of 6.51 g/cm3.
(a) What is the volume of its unit cell in cubic meters?
(b) If the c/a ratio is 1.593, compute the values of c and a.
Zippydah Company has the following data at December 31, 2014.

Zippy Cola is a multinational soft drink manufacturer. The Australian plant, located at Deveton in Victoria is currently attempting to improve its performance through benchmarking activities. The best-performing plant in the Zippy Cola group is located in Seattle in the USA. The general manager of the Doveton plant has approved a bench-marking visit to the Seattle plant by a team of employees. The bench marking team consists of the manufacturing manager, two manufacturing team leaders, a member of a third manufacturing team and the plants human resources manager. The functions that the benchmarking team has identified for study include employment contracts, the operation of self-managed teams in manufacturing and the processes that have resulted in high safety performance and short cycle times at the Seattle plant.
1. What type of benchmarking is the Doveton plant planning to undertake?
2. Explain the advantages and limitations of this form of benchmarking.
3. What are the advantages of forming a multidisciplinary benchmarking team similar to the one used b the Doveton plant?
Zipper has N links: each link has a state in which it is closed with energy 0 and a state in which it is open with energy ε. We require, however, that the zipper can only unzip from the left end, and that the link number s can only open if all links to the left (1, 2 . . . s – 1) are already open.
(a) Show that the partition function can be summed in the form
Z = 1 – exp [–(N + 1)ε/τ] / 1 – exp (–ε/τ)
(b) In the limit ε >> τ, find the average number of open links. The model is very simplified model of the unwinding of two-stranded DNA molecules.
