Happy Diwali ! Reply

A very happy Diwali to all my readers and all those who I can’t directly wish so considering the vast gap that technology can still not measure up in connecting us all physically.

Diwali or Dipaballi as well know is an Indian celebration in the month of November although the dates might alter to nearing the months of October or December considering the fact that Indian vernacular calendar is measured wrt the motion of moon and not the modern solar calendar which is most precise for mos of civilian time measurements on our planets. That simply means celebrations such as this might alter to weeks if not months altogether. I don’t have a data centric information regarding how much Diwali alters though, in terms of a Julian Calendar.

Thankfully much of our important transactions are based on the sun based calculations which means, in modern times, a great deal of corrections coming from the sidereal constants of motion. A sidereal constant of motion refers to having to fix all references wrt to distant stars so that fluctuations coming from sun or Intra-solar objects such as planetary perturbations itself can be properly accounted for.

Now coming back onto the idea of Diwali I am not going to delve into how much we want to signify it as a victory of morality over evil, and how much myth is important in our philosophical and existential moorings, such as how a monster by the name of Holika — gender specifically the feminine form of evil was killed by Sri Krushna.

I never like to take exceptions to how much vilification outdated traditions of our heritage and culture entails, and robustly establishes into a modern and civic society, which aims to be progressive and free from malice at the same time. The reason is I never see much intellectual debates that are free from wishful thinking and hypocrisy on one extreme and blindfolded adherence and a ready to die or kill attitude of the right wing inclinations in support of the veracity and usefulness of such traditional ‘wisdom’ and folklore.

The Maxwell’s Equations, from nature to instruments. Reply

The beauty of Maxwell’s equations can be seen in how it helps us understand nature as well as instruments, at the same time. Medical devices are simply an advanced understanding that began with understanding electromagnetic waves through Maxwell’s equations.

Each of the following 4 equations has a different name, by which we call’em, but together they are called as the Maxwell’s equations. Together they constitute what I am inspired to say; the golden equations of Physics. If we do some easy tricks they will be converted into whats called as the Wave Equations (of motion) ! Yes, they describe the wave behavior “fully”.

— By that I don’t mean sound waves, but any sort of waves that move at the speed of light. Sound waves are ordinary pressure oscillations, that travel much slower than even rockets.
The 4 equations therefore describe how electromagnetic waves are created and broadcast. Hence TV radio and satellite communication were understood because these 4 equations were understood.

First two are time-independent or static equations.

The first equation is known as Gauss’s law of electrostatics and says “Electric fields (E), are a result of sources of electrostatic charge”.

The 2nd equation is analogous and called as Gauss’s law of static magnetic field. But it says “apparently there are no sources of magneto-static charge or single magnetic pole from which the magnetic field B is created”.

Then how are magnetic fields created? We needed to know further to find the answer. Lets look at the 3rd and 4th equations. More…

The Coriolis Effect

Coriolis Force; An interesting idea. 3

Coriolis Force

09th February 2015.

I have been thinking of writing a basic introduction, on this important physical concept — of, what’s a Coriolis Force.

Its one of the interesting ideas of physics, which does not get as much of a mention, unless you just happen to know this, because of your advance footing, in the discourses of Physics; perhaps because its two orders of magnitude smaller, in its strength, compared to relevant forces, in a situation, that involves this small — but, significantly measurable force.

So, what’s a Coriolis Force?

I presume that most of us would be aware of, what’s centrifugal force. Its in this connection, that, a Coriolis force is most understandable.

So, what’s a centrifugal force?

A Centrifugal force, comes into picture, every time a centripetal force comes into consideration. A centrifugal force is the corresponding pseudo force, of a centripetal force. So, for every centripetal force there would be a corresponding centrifugal force.

So, we need to shed light on a few things, before we understand, what are Coriolis Force. We need to therefore discuss; what are pseudo forces and what’s a centripetal or a centrifugal force, then a coriolis force would be clearer, to the root.

So lets begin with Force.

Force has a basic standing in Physics, in connection to, in what frames of reference we need to measure such a physical quantity, as are all other physical quantities to be measured, have a significance, as to; in what frames of reference we are measuring these quantities in. More…

The basics of Physics — is Gravity amenable to Quantization? 1

The basics of Physics — is Gravity amenable to Quantization?

This is a very detailed and long article, but written in a very simple language, as it seems to me, describing such concepts as; the basis of expectations of “Quantization of Gravity with other forces” which is colloquially known as Einstein’s dream of GUT — or, Grand Unified Theory, and whether such is possible or not and what we may be missing.

This article also describes briefly Pseudo Forces — check a detailed description here. (web-link)

In detail the basis of Physics Formalism — check a discourse here (web-link) and

What are waves and particle — (a link to an extensive discussion will be provided, upon further review), the discussion is in terms of a Formal POV of Physics — ‘slightly”, but much can be based and expanded on such.

This would be one of the most well written article by me as I would think.

So lets get back to the discussion of our original topic of interest.

The basics of Physics — is Gravity amenable to Quantization?

I like to speak first; about a development of Physics, in this article, that follows a chronological path, rather than, how we look at the cumulative understanding, in modern times, upon which we base our statements and help ourselves be inconsistent, because we forget or rather are oblivious; to the deeper framework, in which things were developed.

— Today I want to focus on Gravity. But before I talk about Gravity; I would like to speak something, on Physics itself. More…

What I criticize and what I don’t? Reply

Previous title; Who I criticize and who I don’t?

Casual heroes and heroins and their ripened silence and immature hypocrisy.

Friends this is a general comment of the purported political nature of some of my criticism posts — on social media, which consists, mainly, G+, twitter, FB and occasionally my own website, and these type of criticism is only perhaps 10%.

I am not keeping a tab of the composition, but if I post a link of some discovery or some events, that I do not follow myself greatly, but just want to share, I do so, and that perhaps covers more significant numbers of my posts, on such social issues. Also more than 75% of my posts are perhaps simply neutral from a preposterous political view point. See what I mean, here, here and here.

So my own criticism may be significant, but I share a lot of views and opinions and analyses from others. This is also a modus operandi of how and what I am willing to believe, as opposed to what party line I would lick with impunity.

There are tons of events or news from here and there and only few involves important issues, that are being discussed elsewhere. If you are one of my regular post comment-er I would take your comments with as much sincerity as they are made with. In other words my alarm bells would not be ringing “caution”, I have already some kind of trust working between you, my reader, and me, the post maker.

But a one time comment that simply picks up on a particularly psychic paranoia of one self and projects as a generic nature of my existence, may not be seen with much impunity. More…

What we fear? 1

Fear is an internal quotient of external situations, and it might only be unreal, if internal methods are brittle. We fear things that we don’t grow up with.

We are fearful of crime, but the criminal is not. But thats not why I said it although its applicable. Why I said it is because following.

A country is fearful of money, because of economic difficulties. Another is fearful of English because they were secluded from it for centuries. The American is fearful of confrontation, they grew up without anyone (outsiders) “telling” them.

Some people are fearful of maths, they did not grow with numbers and some are fearful of good behavior. I am eg fearful of bad behavior. I did not grow so much with it. More…
