Hello Priya,

Let us assume two forces F1 and F2.

In the question , there are two conditions given and accordingly we need to solve the equations by forming two equations.

In the first condition, the angle between two forces is 90 degree so apply the formula for the resultant which is =

F1^2 + F2^2 +2F1F2 *cos 90 = 10^2 - - - (i)

In the second condition the equation will come out to be :-

F1^2 + F2^2 + 2 F1F2 cos 60 = (√13)^2 - - - 2

So from the first get the value of F1 in terms of F2 and substitute in the second equation and a quadratic equation will be formed.

Hello aspirant,

Yes, if you are registered with the state bar council, you can practice law before clearing AIBE . However, in such a case, you will have to clear AIBE within two years from the date of registration at the state bar council. Since you have mentioned that you have cleared LLB in 1996, then it is not compulsory for you to give AIBE.

In the State Bar Council Meeting, the Bar Council passed a resolution that the "Right to practice" exam, popularly known as AIBE, is no more mandatory for the lawyers registering themselves in any state of the country.

Furthermore, the eligibility criteria to give AIBE Exam is as mentioned below : Candidates should hold 3 years or 5 years LL. B. degree from a BCI recognized law school. One should note that there is no minimum percentage to qualify in the examination in order to register for the AIBE exam.

I hope that this will help.
