Techkriti Science Quiz Mains

  1. 1. Round 1. Fight!!!Host: Shashank Pisupati
  2. 2. Infinite Bounce Clockwise Passing+10 for each correct answer
  3. 3. 1. X and Werner Heisenberg enjoyed at first a strongrelationship. It began as one between a mentor and his protégé. X had become aware of Heisenbergs talent during a lecture Heisenberg gave in Göttingen in 1922. Heisenberg, like most of Xs assistants, learned Danish. Heisenbergs uncertainty principle was developed during this period, as was Xs complementarity principle
  4. 4. •Neils Bohr
  5. 5. 2.•X’s Y is a thought experiment, usually described as aparadox, devised by Austrian physicist X in 1935. Itillustrates what he saw as the problem of theCopenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanicsapplied to everyday objects. Although the original"experiment" was imaginary, similar principles havebeen researched and used in practical applications. Inthe course of developing this experiment, X coined theterm Verschränkung (entanglement).•Identify the Experiment talked about ?
  6. 6. •Schrodinger’s Cat

The Syracusia is said to havebeen the largest ship built in classical antiquity.Since a ship of this size would leak aconsiderable amount of water through the hull,the__________ was purportedly developed inorder to remove the bilge water. Xs machinecould also be used to transfer water from a low-lying body of water into irrigation canals.

  29. 29. •al-Khwārizmī•His works in arabic introduced the western world to Indian mathematics including the place valueand system systematic solutionof linear and quadratic equations. Because of thishe was considered the father of modern algebra.
  30. 30. Infinite BounceCounter-Clockwise Passing+10 for each correct answer
  31. 31. 1.Identify X. •X is a theoritical physicist and creator of the X variables.•X is one of the founders of loop quantum gravity and its subfield loop quantum cosmology. •In 1999, X and his colleagues were able tocalculate the entropy for a black hole, matching a legendary 1974 prediction by Hawking.
  32. 32. •Prof. Abhay Asthekar
  33. 33. 2. What is being talked about ? Alternatively give X & Y •It is a Machian theory of gravity proposed by Xand Y that fits into the quasi steady state model of the universe. •Y is known for his work in championing models alternative to the popular Big Bang model.•It proposes that the inertial mass of a particle is a function of the masses of all other particles, multiplied by a coupling constant, which is a function of cosmic epoch. •In cosmologies based on it, the gravitational constant G decreases strongly with time.

In ourexperiments, a beam of sunlight was converged successively by atelescope objective of 18 cm. aperture and 230 cm focal length, andby a second lens was placed the scattering material, which is eithera liquid or its dust-free vapour……… A blue-violet filter, whencoupled with a yellow-green filter and placed in the incident light,completely extinguished the track of the light through the liquid orvapour. The reappearance of the track when the yellow filter istransferred to a place between it and the observers eye is proof ofthe existence of a modified scattered radiation.

  45. 45. 2. Identify.
  46. 46. 3.Identify X.Physics journals refused to publish Xs paper. Various editors ignored his findings, contending that he had presented them with a simple mistake. Discouraged, he wrote to Y, who immediately agreed with him. His theory finally achieved respect when X sent his own paper in support of Y’s to Zeitschrift fürThe reason Xs "mistake" produced accurate results was that since photons are indistinguishable from each other, one cannot treat any two photons having equal energy as being two distinct identifiable photons. By analogy, if in an alternate universe coins were to behave like photons, the probability of producing two heads would indeed be one-third (tail- head = head-tail).
  47. 47. 4. What is X? It is suggested that all particles had no mass justafter the Big Bang. As the Universe cooled and the temperature fell below a critical value, an invisible force field called the ‘X’ was formed together withthe associated ‘Y’. The field prevails throughout the cosmos: any particles that interact with it are given a mass via the Y. The more they interact, the heavier they become, whereas particles that never interact are left with no mass at all.
  48. 48. 5. Identify X. •The term X was introduced by Lev B. Okun in a plenary talk at the 1962 International Conference on High Energy Physics. •X is a composite particle made of quarks heldtogether by the strong force. Xs are categorized into two families: baryons (made of three quarks) and mesons (made of one quark and one antiquark).
