Neutronium or Neutron?Nyambuya, G. G., 2017In the reading Nyambuya (2015), we proposed a hypothetical state of the Hydrogen atom
whose name we coined ¡®Neutronium¡¯. That is to say, in the typical Hydrogen atom, the
Electron is assumed to orbit the Proton, while in the Neutronium, the conve[more...]
On Einstein’s Rejected Field Equation of General RelativityNyambuya, G. G., 2017We show that Einstein (1915b)’s second equation
of general relativity that was swiftly rejected by himsoon after
it was pointed out that this equation was inconsistentwith
the law of conservation of energy-momentum, this equation
can be salvaged [more...]
On the Anomalous Electronic Heat CapacityNyambuya, G. G., 2017The experimentallymeasured and theoretically deduced
values of the
-coefficient of the electronic heat capacity
exhibit a clear discrepancy. This discrepancy is usually
attributed to the neglected effects such as the Electron
self-interaction a[more...]
On the Possible Origins of the Dirac Equation (II)Nyambuya, G. G., 2017In our previous instalment, we introduced a hypothetical neutrino field in-order to obtain
a Dirac particle with a stable non-zero mass. We here show that given a proper choice of the
Unitary matrix which is part and parcel of Dirac equation, this [more...]
Oscillating Massless NeutrinosNyambuya, G. G., 2017-12-02The phenomenon of neutrino oscillations requires that not only should neutrinos be massive
but that these masses be unique. How they acquire this mass remains an open question. Various
mechanisms have been proposed to explain this phenomenon of neu[more...]
Salvaging Newton’s 313 Year Old Corpuscular Theory of Light.Nyambuya, G. G.; Dube, A.; Musosi, G., 2017As is well known – Newton’s corpuscular model of light can explain the Law of Reflection and
Snell’s Law of Refraction. Sadly and regrettably – its predictions about the speed of light in different
mediums runs contrary to experience. Because of th[more...]
Wave Equation in a Reactive Medium and the Origins of InertiaNyambuya, G. G.; Musosi, G.; Dube, A., 2017We herein derive an equation for a wave travelling in a reactive medium, that is to say, a medium
which interferes with the travelling wave. The purpose of this derivation is to try and obtain new
insights into the origins of the mass term appearin[more...]
Microcontroller Based Wind Direction Measurement SystemMuchono, Blessed; Chifamba, Saymore; Kamunda, Caspah, 2016This paper reports on a microcontroller based wind
direction measurement system that displays wind direction in real
time. A W200P wind direction sensor manufactured by Vector
Instruments Ltd was used to measure the wind direction. The
microcode [more...]
A comparison of crystalline basement aquifers and Kalahari aquifers in exploration of groundwater occurrence in ZimbabweChuma, Constant; Hlatywayo, Dumisani J.; Midzi, Vunganai; Gumbo, Mervyn; Muchingami, Innocent; Mashingaidze, Robin T, 2016-07Exploration of groundwater occurrence becomes complex if there is inadequate information to explain the its dynamics. The paper compares the major aquifers found in Zimbabwe in order to maximise the exploration
of groundwater in the semi-arid region[more...]
Apsidal Precession of the Outer Solar Planetary Orbits due to the Pioneer AnomalyNyambuya, G. G., 2017-01Despite the now common position that the Pioneer
anomaly is not a real gravitational effect but an effect due to the
on-board thermal recoil forces – for curiosity’s sake, we here take
the suggestion of Nyambuya (2015) where it has been assumed th[more...]
Spatially Varying Stellar Opacity ModelNyambuya, G. G., 2017-04Using Larson (1982)’s empirical law as a solid foundational basis for our central
thesis – for a plausible solution to the radiation problem of massive star formation, we
argue in favour of a spatially varying dust-and-gas opacity. This spatially v[more...]
Plausible Dynamical Origins of Larson (1982)’s Empirical LawNyambuya, G. G., 2017-05We revisit Larson (1982)’s empirical law relating the maximum stellar mass and the
mass of the natal Molecular Cloud (MC). The aim of this journey back in-time is to
seek a fundamental origin of this law. Some researchers would want to believe that[more...]
Planck Radiation Formula for Massive PhotonsNyambuya, G. G., 2017-04Having demonstrated in earlier readings (Nyambuya, 2014, 2017) that massive photons should – inprinciple;
exist without any such problems as (1) violation of gauge symmetry, (2) they being short lived,
(3) they being short ranged, (4) they having a[more...]
On the Fundamental Theoretical Foundations of Newton’s Law of CoolingNyambuya, G. G., 2017-04Unlike the famous Stefan-Boltzmann Law (SBL),
one can safely say that Newton (1700)’s Law of Cooling
(NCL) is without any fundamental theoretical foundations
and that – no importance has been placed to seek the most
fundamental basis of this law.[more...]
Light Speed Barrier as a Cosmic Curtain Separating the Visible and Invisible WorldsNyambuya, G. G., 2017-01We argued earlier from a physical and number theoretic standpoint that an upper bound speed
limit such as the speed of light implies the existence of a lower limit to the duration of events in the
Universe [16]. Consequently, this leads to a minimu[more...]
Generalised Maxwell’s Equations Under the Coulomb GaugeNyambuya, G. G., 2017-02We provide amuch simpler proof to Hera’s Existence Theorem and using excerpts fromthe arguments
provided in the our alternative proof, we demonstrate that one can safely add a term to Maxwell’s
equations whereby one obtains a much more general set [more...]
