REALLY Fast & Accurate Multiplication!!!(Vedic math)

Multiplication- as it should be done (Vedic math)                   


Ever been thwarted by a math exam because of your slow or inaccurate multiplication, even when u know your trigonometry ratios. Here’s a method to uncomplicate your life and save you the invaluable time in your math exam

Principle:

This method mainly states multiply diagonally wherever possible and if not, multiply vertically

Brief history (as if you wanna know😏!):

This method was obtained from the Sanskrit Vedas, and therefore is considered a part of Vedic math but you don’t want me babbling about its history, so here is the method… 


Lengthy Tutorial:

1)      You would first want to take out a piece of paper 😛
Ok fine, I get it… for real now
1)      For this example, we’re going to multiply 141 and 132


2)      Then we’re going to consider the leftmost digit of both the numbers and multiply them. In this case 1x1. Write the product i.e. 1, underneath. Like this:



3)      Next, we take the 2 leftmost digits of both the numbers and multiply them diagonally, add both the products and write it alongside 1
4)      Now we consider all the digits, multiply the extremes diagonally, and multiply the middle digits vertically, and add all 3 products. As the sum is 15 we write the 1 subscripted to the 7 and the 5 underneath.
5)      Now we consider the digits at the ones and the tens unit of both the numbers and multiply them diagonally and do the usual (you must’ve got the hang of it by now).

6)      Now we consider the rightmost digits and multiply them vertically


7)      Now you got to add the carry overs. And voila!! You got your answer. Simple, right?
Same principle for a different number of digits… multiply diagonally whenever possible and vertically when not possible. This method also has another benefit. It gives you the most valued digit first, which can help you estimate and works a wonder in competitive exams!

Some words of caution:-

·        Take care of the place values. Tens should be under tens, hundreds under hundreds,
·        Make sure you add the products. Not multiply them.
you find it tedious to calculate the square root of numbers? Think its too long of a method? Here's something that might help!!!
This is my first article here, hope you guys like it. Comment below for help or what you wanna see me write next. Reviews are highly appreciated. Stay tuned for more awesome work from me…

Have a nice day showing off your super mathematical powers to your friends

Anode Ray Experiment

→Anode ray experiment was conducted by E Goldstein. →These rays are also known as canal rays. →This experiment helped in the discovery of the proton. Apparatus Used A discharge tube  was taken in which there were 2 electrodes i.e. Anode(+ve) and the cathode (-ve). The tube was filled with an inert gas. A perforated or porous cathode was used. A layer of zinc sulphide was placed at the back of the cathode. There was a vacuum pump in the tube. High voltage (5000v-10000v) was allowed to flow through the system. It was observed that when the gas was at 1atm(atmospheric pressure ) no change was seen in the tube.  When the   pressure   was decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass . They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same. But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different. As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons . Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.   Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

The Inverse & Reciprocal TRIGONOMETRIC Functions

So, this is my second post on trigonometry. In this post we're gonna cover the reciprocal and the inverse Trigonometric functions. If you haven't seen my first post you should definitely view it as it covers the basics of Trigonometry The Reciprocal Trigonometric Functions The reciprocal Trigonometric function of Sine is Cosecant, of Cosine is Secant & for Tangent it is Cotangent. Cosecant (Csc θ = 1/Sin θ) or (Hypotenuse/Opposite) Secant (Sec θ = 1/Cos θ) or (Hypotenuse/Adjacent) Cotangent (Cot θ = 1/Tan θ) or (Adjacent/Opposite) We can also represent Tan θ in another way. As Tan θ = opposite/adjacent  & Sin θ = opposite/hypotenuse  & Cos θ = adjacent/hypotenuse ∴ Tan θ = Sin θ/Cos θ (The hypotenuses cancel out) As Cot θ = 1/Tan θ  So, we can also represent Cot θ as Cos θ/Sin θ.

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first: Things You Must Know Some basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u. Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons. Alpha particles have an atomic mass  of 4u. Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets. Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles. He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results i

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897. This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen' This experiment helped to discover electron. According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles. He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Europe's biggest club soccer competition, The UEFA Champions League, takes place every year. The competition begins in September and ends in May. It is a classic tournament following a round-robin format after which the top teams qualify to the knockout stages. It includes 32 best clubs in different countries of Europe. Obviously teams from major countries like England, Spain, France, Germany and Italy qualify easily while teams from smaller countries like Ireland, Austria, Netherlands, Denmark have to go through a qualifying round. The teams who win the leagues in their countries qualify directly while in some countries even the second, third and fourth placed teams also qualify. Sometimes a team may qualify in the Champions League because they finished in the top-four. These clubs may or may not qualify through their leagues but their good performance may help them qualify. Even the champions of The UEFA Europa League, another prestigious league

Important Mathematical Constants!

Important Mathematical Constants Mathematical constants are those numbers that are special and interesting because they come up in the various fields of mathematics like geometry, calculus etc. These mathematical constants are usually named after the person who discovered it and they are represented by a symbol that is usually picked up from the Greek alphabet. Mathematical constants are by definition very important. In this article we will take a look at certain mathematical constants that are more commonplace than others. 1.       π (pi) or Archimedes constant (~3.14159):   π is defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. This is probably the most popular mathematical constant. So π is the circumference of the circle whose diameter is 1 unit. You might have seen it popping up when calculating the area of a circle (πr 2 ) or the circumference of a circle (2πr). It has many uses throughout mathematics from calculating the area of certain shap
