Today we will understand why some elements undergo nuclear fission reaction while other undergo fusion reaction to form heavy element. It has to do with a curve in nuclear physics we call the binding energy curve. Where the Binding energy per Nucleon is plotted versus the Nucleon number.
The journey to understand the nature of light evolved from conflicting models to the realization of wave-particle duality. From Descartes’ particles to Huygens’ waves, Young’s experiment, Maxwell’s electromagnetic waves, Planck’s quanta, and De Broglie’s dual nature, the intertwined dance of light and matter led to a unified understanding of fundamental physics
Do laws governing science allow us to predict the future? The short answer no, and yes. In principle , the laws allow us to predict the future. But in practice the calculations are often to difficult.
Where does the difference between past and future come from? Why do we remember the past but not the future? Why does the entropy always increase in the universe? What exactly is The Arrow Of time? These are some the questions we are going to ponder upon today. So let’s begin!
