Significance of Infinity in Physics and Life
RKDas (MSc- Physics, Banaras Hindu University, India)
The author is trying to prove the existence of infinity and infinite energy in the entire universe. By doing so, he raises some basic questions against the profoundly established concepts of prevalent physics.
Introduction to Infinity
In Sanskrit, infinity is termed as ananta, which is something without any limit or end. It is synonymous with Sanskrit term puurna, the full and complete. There is a phonetically similar term apeiron in Greek that stands for potentially unlimited or indefinite.
A specific beauty of the concept of puurna is such that ‘even if a puurna is subtracted or taken out of the puurna, the remainder is but an unreduced puurna itself (puurnasya puurnam aadaaya puurnam eva avashishyate).’ Following the same ideology, a practical statement may be made: the infinity is a one single entity, if there are many infinities, where is the room for placing more than one such infinity? Possibility of multiple infinities defies the basic requirements of infinity, which is not finite or limited.
Review of Zero and Infinity
Zero is a number. The zero, just as a number does exist in reality. It is such a small number or the smallest possible quantity that it is equal to nothing. Zero is an imaginary concept. In reality, ‘zero content’ does not exist; the zero is a no entity; the zero is without a true existence. There is no true zero. Zero is like a pure untruth.
Zero is a greatly useful tool for arithmetic operations. Read more…
How was the CBSE Class 12 Physics Exam today?

The Physics CBSE exam was tough.It was not beyond the syllabus but it was confusing and was asked in a twisted manner.Almost all the students who prepared for the exams didnot leave any derivations,laws etc.But the saddest part was that they asked the big derivation for just one mark and only very few were asked.And most questions were unexpected ones.
It was painful when I saw that after the exam almost all the students were crying.Sitting for a whole night for studying the derivations,laws etc.. gave nothing to us other than tears.We were happy after the English exam but the Physics exam gave a terror over us about Board Exams.I think 90 % of the students could not complete saying that it was a lengthy paper.
During the exam I could see many sitting with great confusion while few others in a hurry to complete it and the rest of them sitting sadly.By the grace of God I completed 5 minutes before the alloted time and didn’t leave any question.I hope CBSE will consider us.
Mathew Abraham (A Physics Teacher in KVS) claims (on FaceBook) that faster than light communication and transfer of matter is possible and the fact will be revealed in near future.
See the transcript below.
I believe and maintain that “faster than light communication and transfer of matter is possible”. We have to find how?
Do you know there are a lot of Physics facts hidden behind a glass of beer.
Institute of Physics (UK) has launched a Christmas website based on beer, to help explain some of the more peculiar scientific phenomena hidden in a glass of beer.
The site explains many facts of Physics too based on the beer story.
It says that the bubbles are not rising but they are constantly falling in a g;ass of beer. Can’t believe? Visit the site to know more.
Do you find the site just monotonous and garby?
Just login and see the difference!
It just turns beautiful.
