## 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}
≤ - 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

1. 2. 3. ### Piezoelectric Crystal

Piezoelectric Crystal {literally_pressing electricity} Ever wondered what it might be like to live in dark or sleep in a hot summer day without an AC ? Absurd, isn't it ? But with the rate at which we are using our resources, it may not be long before it actually happens. Scientist across the globe are searching for new resources, stocks and technology to prevent the near, unpleasant future of current and the next gen. One of these, an unexploited tech is that of Piezoelectricity. Piezoelectricity is an ability of some special materials (like crystals of quartz, ceramics of lithium niobite, gallium arsenide, zinc oxide) to trigger an electric charge when supposed to mechanical stress. These materials are available in basic instruments that we use in our daily life like microphones, quartz watch, gramophones. All these materials are run by the piezoelectric current. But how does it work? When you apply force (mechanical force) on it, an electric potential, on eit

### 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.

### High School Pedia

It is an initiative by some students to spread the light of knowledge to everyone and everywhere. It was started in the year 2015 and has grown rapidly in the past few months. By the means of this website, we try to provide information on every topic that we can reach up to. You can find different articles on this website. All these articles are written in simple language so that everyone can understand it and learn from it. We at High School Pedia believe in creative learning and this is the reason why we add our own edited graphical representations in every article. Once a very learned man said, “Knowledge increases by not keeping it to yourself but by sharing it with others”. And we follow the same motto “Share to Learn”. The team of High School Pedia tries its best to provide you with the best and original content. Unlike many other websites, High School Pedia is famous for its original and inspiring content.

### 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.

### Levitation 2

LEVITATION II To be completely honest I was going to start this with a pun. I did think of one but it doesn’t float… I am sorry I just had to. Anyway, this is the second part to the article on super cool ways of making things levitate. Go check the first part out if you haven’t already. Actually, the first part may have become repulsive with all the magnets and stuff, but I promise this will be more attractive. Get it? No? I’ll stop now. I am just going to jump straight into it. 1.    Electrostatic Levitation I know you are probably sick and tired of magnets but they are the best way you know… This method is somewhat similar. You remember that cool science experiment you did with two straws attracting or repulsing each other based on their charge? So basically using the same principle we can make a charged object levitate. But before you try it, let me tell you it won’t be easy. Even impossible according to our Mr. Earnshaw. He even made a law (the law is

### 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.

### Upcoming Marvel Movies

Hey, guys! Today we are going to talk about the 5 most awaited and upcoming marvel movies. Everyone is eagerly waiting right ?!            1) GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY vol.2 (2017) Last month marvel shared the first teaser of Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2   describing it as the official sneak-peak. All five main characters- star lord, gamora, rocket, Drax and 'baby' groot . It is set two months after the first movie where the ravagers find out that peter quill double crossed them about the infinity stone (orb). That's all. Everything else is yet to be discovered.
