Hi All,
Can we use one object in two applications?

Yes. Applications in Salesforce are really loose collections of tabs and objects. As long as the user accessing the app has access to the sobject (license and sharing) they will be able to use it in the app, regardless of whether it is custom or standard.

You can. The account object, for example, is used in a wide variety of applications on the Salesforce platform.

Ok...How we know in how many application an object is used?
bob_buzzardbob_buzzard
I don't think there's a way to do that - the object could be accessed via a Visualforce tab in an application, in which case the only way to find out that it is being used would be by examining the code.

Ok...So that means if we have multiple objects and application in an org then this will be very difficult for us to find which object is associated with which application.

It will be difficult to guarantee that, yes. In practice whoever is developing the application should keep track of the objects in use.

Why a custom is not deleted that was in relationship?

I don't understand that question I'm afraid.

First I created a Master-Detail relationship b/w two objects then I remove this relationship and try to delete detail object but I can't.
