On the Theoretical Foundations of the Polemical Titius-Bode Law (Ii) Exoplanetary SystemsNyambuya, G. G.; Jigu, D.; Nyathi, A. N.; Dube, A.; Sibanda, B.; Musosi, G., 2018-06-10Using the Solar system as our standard calibration system, we device a ‘one-size-fits-all ’ procedure
to fit exoplanetary semi-major axis onto ‘quantized’ nodes relative to their central host star. The
idea is to fit the exoplanet’s semi-major axis[more...]
On the Gravitomagnetic Origins of the Spiral Character of GalaxiesNyambuya, G. G., 2018-05We here demonstrate that the proposed hitherto unknown
gravitomagnetic dark-force (Nyambuya 2018) that hypothetically
explains the Flat Rotation Curves of Spiral Galaxies –
this same force, explains very well, the logarithmic spiral shapes
of spi[more...]
Faint Young Sun Paradox and the Expanding Earth HypothesisNyambuya, G. G., 2018-06We present a plausible solution to the so-called Faint
Young Sun Paradox (FYS-Paradox) within the context of the Expanding
Earth Hypothesis (EEH). We show that if — as the current
state of the art ITRF observations seem to indicate — the
Earth is[more...]
Effect of the Darkforce on the Extra-Anomalous Apsidal Precession of Solar PlanetsNyambuya, G. G., 2018-05We demonstrate that, while the proposed Gravitational
Dark-force Theory (of Nyambuya 2018a, hereafter Paper I) predicts
an extra-anomalous apsidal precession for Solar planets due
to the gravitational dark-force on the orbits of these planets, the[more...]
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...]
