We talk about the beginning of imaginary numbers and the set of rules that come with them. We show how an error that occurred in an equation started the discovery of these. These numbers also help us achieve a better perspective towards the parabolas we see every day. At the end, you can see how these new numbers found the perfect place on the number line and fit in well with different categories we all know.</p> Misha Nikouravan ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2019-03-31 2019-03-31 9 1 1 5 10.14331/ijfps.2019.330121 Palchoudhury Gas Theory and Role of Heat Engine https://fundamentaljournals.org/index.php/ijfps/article/view/165 <p><a title="View Counters"><img title="free counter" src="https://counter6.wheredoyoucomefrom.ovh/private/freecounterstat.php?c=6ap8jn6jf6c3j98um68r9hmf26tby4fd" alt="free counter" border="0">&nbsp;</a><strong>View</strong></p> <p>Palchoudhury gas theory is capable of describing the function of a heat engine. The capacity of a heat engine can be measured in two ways. (1) The product of pressure and inner surface area (2) The product of the gas constant, number of moles, outer surface area and temperature.</p> Sankar Palchoudhury ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2019-03-31 2019-03-31 9 1 10 13 10.14331/ijfps.2019.330123‎ Effects of Seasonal Change on the Levels of Geogenic Radionuclides in Sand and Rocks from Tyaa River deposit in Kitui County https://fundamentaljournals.org/index.php/ijfps/article/view/188 <p><a title="View Counters"><img title="website counters" src="https://counter6.wheredoyoucomefrom.ovh/private/freecounterstat.php?c=ykmf7xy6ymyk8w4csrkp1syenscxlebr" alt="website counters" border="0"></a></p> <p>A total of 56 samples of raw building materials (26 rocks and 30 sand samples) each weighing 500g were randomly sampled along the riverine for the alternate rainy and dry seasons. Gamma-ray spectrometric analysis of rocks sampled during the rainy season reports an average activity concentration of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K of 22±1.1 BqKg-1, 46±2.3 BqKg-1, and 659±33 BqKg-1 respectively, while the sand collected during the same season revealed a mean activity of 27±1.4 BqKg-1, 49±2.5 BqKg-1and 824±41 BqKg-1 for 226Ra, 232Th and 40K respectively. A repeat study during dry season reported higher activities for 226Ra, 232Th, and 40K for most samples. The corresponding dose rates and radiological indices estimated from specific activities of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K showed an upward trend as seasons changed from rainy to dry. However, both seasons reported radiation doses below the permissible limits.</p> Stanley Muthama Matsisti J. M. Linturi J.M. Kebwaro O. M.

Therefore this paper tries to individually examine the role of each of the abovementioned factors in amalgamation of village areas into city districts. This research uses analytic method and documentary research including extensive field observation, and questionnaires which were completed by 220 households and it highlights that even though there are not significant social and managerial differences between Islamshahr city and Shatereh village, when considering cultural, economic and physical factors in these areas the difference is substantial thus, the results indicates that these differences are the consequence of the amalgamation of the villages into the cities.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="https://doi.org/10.14331/ijfps.2013.330044">https://doi.org/10.14331/ijfps.2013.330044</a></p> Naghmeh MohammadPourlima Ali NooriKermani Ali Akbar Rezaei ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2019-01-28 2019-01-28 9 1 5 8 10.14331/ijfps.2013.330044 Innovative extracting of optimum operational diagrams for a CW sealed CO2 laser based on the evolutionary genetic algorithm https://fundamentaljournals.org/index.php/ijfps/article/view/pdf <blockquote> <p style="text-align: justify;"><sub><img title="free website hit counter" src="http://www.free-website-hit-counter.com/c.php?d=5&amp;id=121001&amp;s=16" border="0"></sub>&nbsp;&nbsp;<small></small><strong>Views&nbsp; </strong></p> <p>Some innovative diagram for the optimum parameters in operation of a sealed CW CO<sub>2</sub> laser was extracted by using the evolutionary genetic algorithm.
