SETS, RELATIONS & FUNCTIONS

SETS, RELATIONS & FUNCTIONS

Sets are a fundamental part of mathematics and it’s knowledge is very important in present. It defines the concepts of relation and functions. These functions are also very essential for present day maths.

SETS

Sets are denoted by capital letters. They are similar to matrices whose elements are denoted by small letters. But in sets an element comes only at once. Sets are matrices which give a sense of belonging. This sense of belongingness is represented by   .We can write anything in a set like rivers of India, Wonders of the World .etc. 
For an example let there be a set of positive single digit. Let the set be denoted as A
Therefore, 8 A
 Also we can write, 17 A
Set can be represented by two types 

ROSTER

In roster form we write elements in curly brackets and separate them with comma. 
If there be set of positive integers less than 10. Therefore the set will be {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} 

SET- BUILDER FORM

In set-builder form we take a variable x and then gives its condition. For eg: we can write the above example as
{x: x is positive integer less than 7}
There are some standard symbols for specific sets like
N : set of all natural numbers
Z : set of all integers numbers
R : set of all real numbers
Z+/Z- : set of all positive/negative integers
Q+/Q- : set of all positive/negative rational numbers
R+/R- : set of all positive/negative real numbers

TYPES OF SETS 

There are various kind of sets. 
EMPTY SET
Set having no element is called an empty set
 For eg: {x: x < 0, x is a whole number }
Whole number is 0 and more than 0. Thus it is a empty set
FINITE AND INFINTE SETS
Sets which have limited elements are called finite set 
For ex: {x: 0 < x < 15}
Sets which have infinite number of sets are called infinite set 
For ex: {x: x R}
EQUAL SETS
Sets which have same elements are called equal sets. The elements can be in any order
For ex: {2, 5, 6, 7} and {5, 7, 6, 2} are equal sets
             {x: 0<x<11} and {x: x is an natural number less 11}
NOTE : in this articles I can use the following sign
              ≤ - more than or equals to 
              ≥ - less than or equals to
SINGELTON SETS
Sets having only single element are called singleton sets. 
For ex: {x: 1<x<3, x Z} is an singleton set.
SUBSET
Subset means when every element of a set A is in another set B. In this case we write … 
A B
If a A and A B then a B
if A is not a subset of B then we write
A B
For ex: A = {1, 3, 5} , B = {2, 3, 1, 6, 5, 7} then A B
If A B and B A then the two sets are equal
Remember A is a subset of B is not vice versa, which means that if A is a subset of B then it is not necessary that B is a subset of A.
Also, 
  • Every set is a subset of itself
  • Empty set is a subset of every set
  • The maximum number of subsets of a set having n elements is 2n

INTERVAL AS SUBSETS OF SETS OF REAL NUMBERS   
Let a, b R. Let a set is in the form
{y: a<y<b}
Then this is known as an open set which means that ‘a’ and ‘b’ are not included in the set. Such sets can be written as (a, b) with curly brackets.
If ‘a’ and ‘b’ are included in the set then we write [a, b] with square brackets
There can be set known as the semi-open set. In this set it is open at one end and closed at the other. Like … [a, b)…closing at ‘a’ and opening at ‘b’ or …(a, b]… opening at ‘a’ and closing at ‘b’
This can be represented in a number line with the help of filled and unfilled dots. Filled dots for closed and unfilled for opened 

POWER SET OF A SET

Power set is a set containing all the subsets of a set A. It is denoted by P(A). In P(A) all elements are sets. If A has n elements then P(A) has 2n elements
If A = {a, b} then P(A) = {φ, {a}, {b}, {a, b}}

UNIVERSAL SET

Out of given number of set if there is a set such that every other set is a subset of it then it is called a universal set
If there is are sets A, B, C, D
Such that A D, B D, C D then D is the universal set. It is represented by ‘U’

OPERATION OF SETS

UNION OF SETS
Union sets means that a set which contains all the elements of A + all the elements of B. If A and B have some common elements then we do not repeat them.
It can be represented by
A B {x: x A or x B}
The colored region is the desired set. 
INTERSECTION OF SET
Intersection of set is a set which have only the common elements of the two sets
It can be represented by , A B

the yellow region is the intersection of A and B
COMPLEMENT OF A SET
Complement of a set is the difference of the set and its union set
It is denoted by A
     A + A = U

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.

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

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.

Paid Apps For Free ??

Everyone wants to play a game like GTA on iPad, it is easy on a computer to download such games but difficult on smart devices like iPad, tablet,  or smartphones. We can buy them but not everyone can buy games. But no worries guys there is a solution to this problem where one can have fun of playing games without spending their precious money .(underlined apps have downloading links  given at the end) iOS There many apps through which you can download these paid games for free. Also, there are many sites for the same. One of the most helpful apps is a Chinese app.It is called haimawan. If on a ios device, then you just have to click install which will redirect to settings  add a profile  and boom enjoy it as you wish . but it does not always work, it might work for few days and then the verification problem which may not cure. One more app is tutu which is a fantastic app and always work (99.9% sure .. nothing is perfect). X cross was the perfect app but is closed now an

Plasma State

Plasma State Introduction An atom consists of 3 sub-fundamental particles:                   Electron - Present in the extra-nuclear part                   Protons - Present in the nuclear part                   Neutrons- Present in the nuclear part An Atom is electrically neutral this means the  number of electrons = number of protons. Any Atom that carries charge is known as an  ion. Plasma State →Plasma State is the 4th state of matter . →It is defined as a colletion or pool of highy charged or excited of gasses. →As the atoms of gas loose electrons, they become highly excited. →It can be also defined as a state of gas in which gases loose there electrons. →This state only exists at very high temerature. →The kinetic energy of the particles of the gas increases, due to which particles or atoms collide with each other with force. Examples Lightning... Ya guys ever wondered how the particles of air conduct electricity d
