Een spiraal van rechthoeken rond een vierkant
Een spiraal van rechthoeken rond een vierkant
Sinds enkele jaren ben ik op zoek naar eenvoudige wiskundige en fysische problemen die onverwacht gerelateerd zijn met het getal \(\pi\). In The bouncing balls and pi beschreef ik eerder al hoe de opeenvolgende decimalen van \(\pi\) kunnen berekend worden door twee ballen volledig elastisch tegen elkaar en tegen een muur te laten botsen. In dit artikel zal ik aantonen hoe het getal \(\pi\) tevoorschijn komt door een oneindige serie rechthoeken met oppervlakte 1 spiraalsgewijze aan elkaar te kleven. In een veralgemening van dit probleem duikt op een natuurlijke wijze de gammafunctie en de formule van Stirling op.

The Mechanics of a Spiral Water Pump
The Mechanics of a Spiral Water Pump
The fundamental necessity for water is a widespread issue affecting many communities across the globe. In this project, our team sought to provide an innovative solution to this problem for a small community with access to a relatively close source of flowing water. Resultant flow rate of water was calculated to be 0.498 L/min. Stress and strain analysis on individual subsections of the system were as follows: -44.2 MPa for bending moment in the rod; -7.04 MPa for shear stresses in the rod of the axis; -8.88E-5 for shear strain in the rod ; -1.11 MPa and .429 MPa of shear stresses in the L brackets; -0.123 MPa for radial stress of spiral, -0.422 MPa for hoop stress of spiral, -2.10 MPa for bending moment of spiral, and -0.176 MPa for the maximum shear stress of the spiral pump on the rotating wheel. The focus of the design remained fixated on water acquisition; however, further additions can be made for water purification.

The Quantum Wavefunction
The Quantum Wavefunction
When most people think of physics, they think of what they learned in high school physics: that the world is fundamentally predictable. Given the position and velocity of a particle in space, it should be possible to predict its position at any moment in the future---right? Though this was thought to be true for thousands of years, recent developments in the field of physics have shown that this isn't actually true. Instead of being fundamentally predictable, the universe is fundamentally unpredicable. However, this doesn't seem to make sense. What happened to the centuries of physics developed by Newton, Bernoulli, and Lagrange? Well, as it turns out, they weren't actually wrong. Their equations were actually an approximation of a formula called the wavefunction, which is the "Newton's Laws'' equivalent for modern physics. In this paper, we'll take a look at this peculiar wavefunction---and why our intuition about the world is completely wrong. \centerline{This is Quantum Physics.}

Ferromagnetism formal report
Ferromagnetism formal report
This report provides insight into the magnetic phenomenon of Hysteresis. Hysteresis is defined as a retardation effect where the magnetisation of a magnetic material lags behind the magnetizing force. Here we will explore the hysteresis loop for a silver steel ferromagnet and use this to discover it’s magnetic properties. The method used will be to place a ferromagnet inside a solenoid with an alternating voltage which will continually reverse the magnetic field and magnetism direction. The relation between these two quantities will be used to produce a hysteresis loop from which magnetic properties can be deduced. The results obtained were: saturation magnetisation = (8.4±0.5)(105)Am-1; remnant magnetisation = (5.9±0.5)(105)Am-1; coercive field: (4.3±0.5)(104)Am-1; energy expended per cycle per unit volume of material: (1.55±0.05)(103)Jm-3s-1; energy product: (8.7±3.0)(104)Jm-3.

The aim of this laboratory work is to design a strut/bracket assembly for aircrafts. Experiments are carried out to determine mechanical properties of certain materials.The material chosen is Mild Steel. Given the possible condition experienced by the material and the safety factor, the dimensions for the designs of the strut/bracket assembly for aircrafts are obtained to avoid failure by yield or fracture. The diameter of the pin, d ,which is subjected to shear stress should be larger than 14.56mm. The diameter of the rod, D, should be larger than 12.74mm. The thickness of the rod would be 10mm.
