Exotic scenes from Kavaratti Island Lakshadeep

I had an opportunity to visit Kavaratti, Lakshadeep and stay there for two weeks. I had a wonderful experience there. The photos are just exotic. Just return around and click, every time I get excellent sceneries. Beautiful ones. The greenish blue sea is just marvelous. The corals, coconut trees, friendly people, freak and tasty fish especially the tunas… Just incredibly the best experience I had ever.
He are some photos of Kavaratti and Agatti islands.

Want to learn fast? Be SMART!

 

In this busy world everyone wants to save time. Being students, learning is our primary job. To save time, we need to learn faster. But how?

 

The first step is to have a SMART goal!

 

S – Specific

 

Time Management

 

M – Measurable

 

A –  Achievable

 

R – realistic

 

T – Time Bound

 

Having a Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic and Time Bound – SMART goal will increase your efficiency to grasp ideas faster.

 

While all of you may be having a long term goal, usually what you want to become after studies, you should have a short term goal, an objecting for every sitting of your studies too.

 

Have a Time Table – be specific what to study and when.

 

In the time slot for each, decide what and how much to study before you start. Know the outcome expected of you as a result of reading the portion. If it is not mentioned already, it is better to have a look at the questions based on the portion at hand before you actually read the topic.

 

Learn to read fast. Don’t go word by word while you read. Try to grasp a group of words at a go concentrating on the idea contained. Concentrate fully keeping in mind the objectives/ the questions you read based on the portion.

 

Do not reread or skip back until you have completed

 

After you have completed the reading check your comprehension by answering the questions.

 

Practice this daily and try to improve your reading and comprehension skills. This will certainly help you to score more as well as to live well in times to come.

 

 

 

Some Physicists and their contributions

Physicists outside India

 

  • Galileo – (formulated the basic law of falling bodies, constructed a telescope and discovered four moons revolving around Jupiter)

    Picture of Isaac Newton, Galileo Galilei and A...

    Picture of Isaac Newton, Galileo Galilei and Albert Einstein

  • Archimedes: Archimedes Principle and theory of floatation, Principle of levers)
  • Albert Einstein: Theory of relativity, (Special and General)
  • Isaac Newton: Laws of motion, The method of Calculus
  • Michael Faraday: Electromagnetic induction, dynamo

 

Physicists from India

 

    • CV Raman – (studied light scattering and discovered the Raman effect)
    • JC Bose – (pioneered the investigation of radio and microwave optics)
    • SN Bose –English: Satyendra Nath Bose in Paris 1925

      (worked out statistical method of handling bosons)

    • MN Saha – (best known for his development of the Saha equation, used to describe chemical and physical conditions in stars.)
    • HJ Bhabha (initiated nuclear research programs in India; carried out experiments in cosmic rays; calculated cross section for elastic electron-positron scattering)
    • Subramanyan Chandrasekhar:-Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar in his later years

      (won the 1983 Nobel Prize for Physics for key discoveries that led to the currently accepted theory on the later evolutionary stages of massive stars. The Chandrasekhar limit is named after him.)

 

Limitations of Homogenity

Paraser asked

“What are the limitations of homogenity?”

The question is acutually”What are the limitations of dimensional analysis?”

The dimensional analysis is based on the principle of homogenity of dimensions. The question is already discussed earlier  HERE

Ask Physics has a new look now

As per the requests and suggestions by the members and students, the look and feel of Ask Physics is changed now. Hope you like it.

Your suggestions for further improvements are always welcome.

Now users at Ask Physics can add equations to their comments and questions.

Ask Physics has installed the Latex server and now users can type latex code to insert complex equations to their comments or questions.

If you are not familiar with latex code, use the following site to generate the code for the equation that you need.

http://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php

When you visit the above site you can edit and view the result of the code generate. You have the option to copy the image of the equation or to copy the code itself (what you typed for getting the image equation; not the html code supplied) and paste the code in your comment.

Go, Try it Now!
(a+b)^{2}=a^{2}+b^{2}+2ab

Future Plans @ AskPhysics

AskPhysics is keenly looking forward to integrate the following services at the website.

  1. Video Lessons explaining the answers to questions by its users and students
  2. Live chat with Teacher(s)
  3. Group Chat for registered members.
