Newton's laws of motion.First law:- Every body continues in its state of rest or uniform motion unless compleeled by an external force to change its position.

Interestingly, this is *not* Newton's first law of motion. It is actually a restatement of his second law, *F*=*ma*.

Strangely enough, Newton made the oft repeated error when he stated the first law. However, in the pages of *Principia* immediately preceding his statement of the first law, he described the law as something substantially different.

The first law should be (and was *described* by Newton as):

*There exists a frame of reference in which an object continues in its state of rest or uniform motion unless a net external force is applied to that object.*

In fact, without this first law, the second law need not hold.

**The Sylow theorems** (group theory)

1. If *G* is a group of order *p[sup]n[/sup]k* (where *p* is a prime, *n* and *k* are positive integers and *p* is coprime with *k*) then *G* has a subgroup of order *p[sup]n[/sup]*, called a Sylow *p*-subgroup.

2. If *P* and *Q* are Sylow *p*-subgroups of *G*, there exists *g* ∊ *G* such that *gPg*[sup]−1[/sup] = *Q*.

3. The number of Sylow *p*-subgroups must divide the order of *G* and be congruent to 1 modulo *p*.

**Plancks radiation law**

The intensity per unit wavelength of the radiation of a black body of absolute temperature is given by

[align=center]

[/align]where is Plancks constant, is the speed of light in a vacuum, and is Boltzmanns constant.

From this, both **Stefans law** (which states that the intensity of the radiation of a black body is proportional to the 4[sup]th[/sup] power of its absolute temperature) and **Wiens displacement law** (which states that the maximum wavelength of the radiation of a black body is inversely proportional to its absolute temperature) can be derived.

To derive Stefans law, hold

constant and evaluate . For Wiens displacement law, set .**http://z8.invisionfree.com/DYK/index.php?showtopic=867**
