Cool Physics!

“And We have not created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in vain.”
[Sad Chapter 38 : Verse 28]

As my first post, I thought I share with you some mind-boggling physics. Enjoy! Hopefully I will continue to add more to this collection over the coming weeks. You are most welcome to contribute, simply comment.

    1. Yes, some of them you can, though some you should ONLY try in a lab with proper equipment and safety gear! The Liquid Helium and Meissner effect experiments should be done in a lab for safety reasons.

      1. I wonder what would happen if we did these experiments with honey? I dont know much about this but just a thought. Have you come across any papers that might be of interest here.

      2. My memory might serve me wrong here, but wasn’t there some experiments that the Promised Messiah (a.s) did with honey and eggs, which produced some hardening effect on the egg?

      3. With honey! Nope no experiments like this. Honey is a liquid but not a super liquid. Well people have experimented on affect of temperature on honey but not extreme temperatures. That would just defeat the purpose as honey is for human consumption. Extreme temperatures denature the proteins within and effectively destroy its anti-bacterial properties.

  1. Hadhrat Aqdas the Promised Messiah also mentions that honey is not like other sugars and is actually beneficial for diabetics (Malfuzat 4. 191, 192). The experiment he conducted is mentioned in Malfuzat 3 p553 and I seem to recall that it is mentioned elsewhere in his writings as well. He says ‘Once I conducted an experiment with honey and was astonished to find that its yolk remained the same but the albumen became solid and hard as stone and was as difficult to break.’
