- A football player kick a ball at an angle of 37° to the horizontal with an initial speed of 15 m/s. Assuming that the ball travels in a vertical plane, calculate (i) the time at which the ball reaches the highest point. (ii) the maximum height reached by the ball (iii) the horizontal range of the projectile and (iv) the time for which the ball is in air.

Fedor Bezrukov from the RIKEN–BNL Research Center and Mikhail Shaposhnikov from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne propose that the Higgs boson, which was recently confirmed to be the origin of mass, may also be responsible for the mode of inflation and shape of the Universe shortly after the Big Bang. “There is an intriguing connection between the world explored in particle…
Scientists in the Netherlands are all set to overriding one of Albert Einstein’s most famous objections to the implications of quantum mechanics, which he described as “spooky action at a distance.”

Unconditional quantum teleportation between distant solid-state quantum bits published in http://www.sciencemag.org/ says -

Yes! Neutrino detectors can be used to detect nuclear weapons. (Ref: The above story is based on materials provided by Virginia Tech. )
Physicists at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland look to subatomic particles called neutrinos to answer the big questions about the universe.
Neutrinos are produced by the decay of radioactive elements, and nuclear reactors produce large amounts of…
Everybody has to develop within the society and interact with others for the well – being og society in general.
Right from birth, the child is made to realize that his lot is tied on to that of the community which includes himself, the elders, the souls of the departed and the generations unborn
Learning is the process by which an organism, as a result of its interaction in a situation, acquires new mode of behaviour which tends to persist and affect the general behavioural pattern of the organism to some degree.
Learning is a process of acquiring and stabilizing of successful or rewarded responses and of eliminating the unsuccessful or unrewarded responses.
Jean Piaget was a Swish Psychologist. His work (based on observations made on the development of his own kids) has been enormously influential and has sparked numerous studies through out the world.
How Children Think?
According to Piaget, a child does not think like an adult in a less effective manner. The thinking process of children is qualitatively different from the thinking of adults.
