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 (πr2) or the circumference of a circle (2πr). It has many uses throughout mathematics from calculating the area of certain shapes to the Gaussian integral in complex analysis. π is irrational and is represented by the small letter π in the Greek alphabet.

2.     or Euler’s constant (~2.71828):

 

is also called the exponential growth constant. It is a very interesting number that shows very interesting properties. e is used in calculus. It is a very amazing number in general. The value of e can actually be calculated with compound interest. Imagine you have one rupee in the bank. The bank gives a compound interest of 100% per annum. So at the end of the year you will have 2 rupees. Imagine the bank, instead of giving you 100% per annum, gave 50% per six months. This is not equal to the above value. Therefore the final amount will be equal to 2.25 rupees (do the math). The value received has increased even though the principal is same. Imagine that for 33% per 4 months. The final value would be 2.36 rupees. Therefore it keeps on increasing. Then imagine how much you could get from 1/infinity % per 12/infinity months. You don’t have to. That number is e.

 

The formula is as follows:





e is also used in many other mathematical fields. It is used in Bernoulli trials, derangements, asymptotics, standard normal distribution and calculus.

 

If a graph is made with y=ex, it will show some unique properties too. At any point on the curved line formed on the graph, the y value of the point and the area under it are equal.

 

3.     i or the imaginary number (-10.5):

 

i is a very interesting variable. It’s value is the square root of -1. It falls into the category of imaginary numbers, in contrast to real numbers. Being a quadratic equation with a multiple root, i is not calculable. But other relations for i can be seen.

 

i= -1

i= i2i = (-1)i = -i

i4 = (-1)2 = 1

i= i3i2 = (-i)(-1) = i

 



It follows a certain pattern. The pattern is (-1, -i, 1, i). This is only applicable if we start with i4n+2. This leads to the conclusion that i= in mod 4 . ‘Mod’ refers to the modulus function.

 

 

 4.     √2 or “root 2” or Pythagorean constant (~1.414213):

√2 is a very well known mathematical constant. It is the ratio between the diagonal and side of a square. √2 is calculated by square rooting 2. It is based around the Pythagoras’ Theorem.

 

Let us assume x represents length of one side of a square. Let y assume the length of the side adjacent to it. x = y. Let z represent length of diagonal. x2 +  y2 = z2. This simplifies into 2x2 = z2. Therefore z = √2x. So the ratio z : x becomes √2x : x, which leaves you with √2.

Therefore √2 can be very easily proved geometrically. It is also a number whose infinite tetrate is equal to its square. This means:

√2 raised to the power to √2 raised to the power of √2 raised to the po……. infinitely = 2 or √22.

    skincare wholesale We first started just as a lattice shop in Hong Kong. If you don't know what that is, it simply refers to a small area divided from the shelf , and we owned one of them.

    We were small, but we were serious about finding reliable suppliers.

    It wasn't plain sailing. Spammers, overpriced or expired products, inauthentic items, orders that took forever to ship, irresponsible outsourcing partners, dubious companies... you name it, we have experienced them all.

    So we thought, why don't we build our own trustworthy one-stop beauty platform? Not only for our retail customers but also those businessmen who are serious about finding reliable wholesalers as we did.

    And here we are, Carsha.

    Our Mission
    We aspire to build an all-in-one beauty marketplace for our retail customers by gathering together a diverse range of products, from global-leading brands to indie beauty brands. Towards our B2B customers, we aim to become their most transparent, accessible, best-price and supportive beauty wholesaler.

    Our Vision
    Our goal is to provide our customers with a personalized, informative, and supportive shopping and purchasing experience. We also empower people, including our employees and companies of all sizes, to achieve beauty, confidence, and success. Finally, we hope that Carsha can evolve alongside the rest of the world.

    Our Promise
    We guarantee that we treat you just like how we treat ourselves - that means that all our products will be 100% authentic. On top of that, our collections will expand from day to day to assure you to be able to find the most suitable cosmetics, skincare products, or fragrances for you and your business. Last but not least, our customer service will remain the best all the time.

    Our Impact
    Over 1500 customers were able to save money thanks to our beauty deals. Over 100 businesses benefited from our products and were inspired by our one-of-a-kind and personalized business strategies. More than 20 employees benefited from our environment and learned from us. In the future, we hope to give back to society by focusing on orphanages, homelessness, and mental illness.

    After many years of dreaming to have this first barbershop, it has finally come true. We are proud to announce that “The Good Barbers” has opened its doors for the first time at Alfred-Escher Strasse 66, 8002 Zürich, and this marks the beginning of our story.

    This dream involved many conversations, research and experience gained by working in some of the best barbershops located in Madrid, London and Zurich. We come from a family of entrepreneurs and have always had in mind that we should be taking risks whilst carefully deciding what the best business concept should be for this city that we call home.

    Hair Products for men We were clear that this business should be built with the following core foundations:

    - Tailored experience

    - Special care for the hygiene

    - Relaxing environment

    - Quality service, products and infrastructure


    With that in mind, one of the most important next steps was to find the first location for our business, we wanted it to be in the city, with good light and in a vibrant area. This search was found to be very challenging as we were not able to offer to the landlords any past record of us being successful as a company, and therefore it was the step that took us the longest to achieve. Thankfully, our chance arrived, and we were able to find a dream location for our business, it had everything we were looking for and more! Two stories, corner location, business hub, floor to ceiling windows…

    Once we were told we got this property, it was time to celebrate! But most importantly, it was time to start bringing to life all these concepts we had been discussing, creating, and modifying throughout these years. Thanks to all the preparation work we did; it was clear what the next steps were and how to execute them.

    Not to bore you with many details, but just to name a few of the concepts we had to now bring to life: furniture, company creation, suppliers, point of sale, software, webpage, talent… It took us many hours of thinking and execution, but we had a goal in mind all along, and it was to open our doors on March 1st, 2022. With project management skills, help from our loved ones and huge amounts of effort, we finally made it! And what a joyful moment it was to see the first client going into the barbershop the first day…


    We would like to take this opportunity, in our first blog post, to thank all of you who have supported us through this journey and also to all our clients who have been coming in or are planning to do so, and therefore giving us a chance. We know it’s challenging to trust a barbershop that has just opened with your hair, beard and facial needs and therefore why we are especially thankful to all of you.

    For any new customers, there is a ongoing offer of 15% discount in your first booking when done online. This offer lasts until 15th April 2022 and includes all services we offer. Definitely an offer not to miss out and that hopefully will bring an extra incentive to you for trying us out. We will do our best to give you a unique service experience in the best barbershop environment you will find in town.

    This is just the beginning of our dream, and we would love to continue sharing it with you all via our 1:1 appointments, social media (Instagram: the_good_barbers / Facebook: thegoodbarbersag) and through this blog.

    Your barbershop of reference in Zürich,

    The Good Barbers.

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

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.

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

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

2-D & 3-D GEOMETRY

2-D & 3-D GEOMETRY We all have some amount of geometry. We know that any line can be represented on the Cartesian plane. Any figure can be drawn on it. But can we represent a 3-d object on it. Yes we can. A Cartesian plane has 2 axis. While representing in 3-D we need to add a third axis. This axis does not come in between the axis or in the same plane. It appears to be coming out of the paper as we cannot represent a 3-d object on a 2-d surface. This new z-axis represents a line coming out of the screen. Before understanding 3-d geometry you need to imagine this axis coming out of the screen.  REMEMBER : all the three axis are perpendicular .i.e there an angle 0f 90 between them and they meet at the origin If you are unable to imagine you can take a thick book as an example. Any corner becomes it origin and the three edges as the three axis REPRESENTING 3-D GEOMETRY Like in 2-d geometry we represent the value of the different axis as (x,y) we use the same m

Animal and Plant Cells

 Cells Cells are the basic functional, biological and structural unit of life. The word cell is a Latin word meaning ‘small room’. Cells are also known as building blocks of life.  The branch of science that deals with the form, structure, and composition of a cell is known as Cytology. All organisms around us are made up of cells. Bacteria, ameba, paramecium, algae, fungi, plants and animals are made up of cells.  Cells together form tissues. And tissue together makes an organ. History Of Cell The cell was discovered by Robert Hooke in 1665. He assembled a simple microscope and observed a very thin slice of cork under his primitive microscope. The cork was obtained from the outer covering of a tree called bark. Robert Hooke observed many little-partitioned boxes or compartments in the cork slice. These boxes appeared like a honey-comb. He termed these boxes as the cell. He also noticed that one box was separated from another by a wall. What Ho
