    Abstract: The bondage between the long range elementary forces and the short range three planetary forces is called unified force. ‘Every particle feels the force of gravity according to its mass or energy’ (Hawking, 1996). ‘So the long range forces have appeal to the short range three planetary forces in inertia mass of the earth. The long range virtual par... Show More

    Abstract: This study deals with the assessment of natural radioactivity due to 226Ra, 232Th and 40K in bottled drinking water samples, marketed in Bangladesh. High purity germanium (HPGe) detector based spectrometry system coupled with Multi Channel Analyzer (MCA) was used to obtain gamma-ray spectra. The mean concentrations of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K were foun... Show More

    Abstract: Some phosphate glass samples containing 30 mol% blast furnace slag (as iron industrial waste) and 20 mol% heavy metal oxides (cadmium and lanthanium) have been prepared by the melt quenching method. It was found that as La2O3 was gradually increased at the expense of CdO, gamma-ray attenuation coefficient increased while the half value layer decrea... Show More

    Abstract: The new approach to geometrization of electromagnetic field is suggested, where previous author’s results on geometrical interpretation of quantum objects are taken into account. These results can be considered as a justification for considering of spaces with higher dimensions for geometrization of electromagnetic field. Electromagnetic fields and... Show More
