LIGO in India? You must be kidding … Reply

I was pleasantly surprised that this experiment is slated to come up in India, yes, with a whopping 250 million dollars investment into science in India is perhaps the only 2nd instance of massive science euphoria.

And they are both directly or immediately so, in my field of research, although the first one INO isn’t seeming to be coming of age, while collaborations and Physics and engineering as such have been extensively laid out in the ground, the lab the much coveted international particle physics lab that is, hasn’t come.

(Surprise me, if work has already begun in Madurai, we have been struck by paranoia of environment so much that the elephants have the right of way more than the most innocuous science commies out there, pardon me, that’s a pun, no disrespect to elephants, no offense to commies.) More…

Blackholes and the Action Principle. Reply

This is not an article that purports to establish any link between what I have to say about Blackholes and what I have to say about Action Principle.

First off there are always a connection between action principle and anything else in Physics. Everything in principle can be derived from the action principle. The action principle is the general principle of all sorts of mechanics in Physics and has the weird power of superiority over everything else, at-least in principle. So if you want to claim something is inconsistent in Physics, take a piece of chalk and chalk out how it is that the action principle is inconsistent with anything that you want to discard. The action principle has the key to proving how consistent or inconsistent Physics is.

And I am not stating the action principle much, either. I just wish to mention two ideas that have no explicit connection to be brought out by this article. Hence they are to be read without any purported conjunctions of one with the other. More…

Whats up with Gravity? 2

The basic difference is a Gravity Force/Field is experienced by huge objects which are not operating in the quantum scales and for a unification with all other 3 forces which are quantum-scale forces one must be in such a scale. How can you have a qunatum-particle communicate information to large objects such as a ball or a satellite or an earth?

And Gravity is not observed for quantum-particles, they have mass which is energy and their energy is satisfied for other forces so we do not know Gravity is a quantum-force or not that is, present at that scale as a smaller or larger value wrt the other forces. May be we can just live without unification and mind it without quantization.

Only finding something by observation can chage such knowledge. More…

Gravity warps space-time !! 1

Since flat space-time can be thought of in Newtonian mechanics as an absence of force or potential of gravity, the presence of such forces is ipso-facto a curvature of space and time, therefore space-time. Thats just another two lines to prove what I claimed, ideally and intuitively. More…

Since flat space-time can be thought of in Newtonian mechanics as an absence of force or potential of gravity, the presence of such forces is ipso-facto a curvature of space and time, therefore space-time. Thats just another two lines to prove what I claimed, ideally and intuitively.

” eg when earth occupies the space-time around it, its effect, interaction or force is larger at a distance which is closer to the surface and smaller at a distance which is farther away, the force decreases radially-linearly, not linearly as such. So there are equipotential surfaces of gravity which are merely concentric spherical enclosures, one at each value of r=distance. This is tricky because its a potential energy where the reference can be chosen arbitrarily in a given situation. In other words, potential energy being negative, its the absolute or modulus of the energy we are talking about. In essence this is to say, the force without the direction specified.

Its interesting to note, thats so because force is a vector and associated with direction and energy being an integral of force, energy has to go on decreasing if energy continues to produce a force. This is again similar to a situation where like a bank account, the more time you spend in a pub the more you have to spend. ” More…
