Equations. Only if they were true..

Here are two equations that are supposed to be somekind of mathematical crank. I only hope if it is true. One of the equation relates the golden ratio and pi. While second one relates pi with most of the physical constants.

Too good to be true!

Too good to be true.And finally, who said that Mathematics can be a bore. Look at the following puzzle from Mahavira from 9th century (India).

One nigt, in a month of the spring season, a certain young lady was lovingly happy with her husband in a big mansion, white as the moon, set in a pleasure garden with trees bent down with flowers and fruits, and resonant with the sweet sounds of parrots, cuckoos and bees which were all intocixcated with the noney of the flowers. Then, on  love-quarrel arising between husband and wife, her peral necklace was broken. One third of the pearls were collected by the maid-servant, one sixth fell on the bed-then half of what remained and half of what remained thereafter and again one half of what remained thereafter and so on, six times in all, fell scattered everywhere. 1,161 pearls were still left on the string; how many pearls had there been in the necklace?

    Arunn. True it can be done with any one of those constants out there. People are obsessed with pi due to it’s history and age I belive.

    …and if you pick any of the non-dimensional groups that we know of in our physics classes, we can relate them to what ever number we want to, and don’t have to restrict to pi alone I guess… 😉

    In Tamil we know of மொட்டைத் தலைக்கும் முழங்காலுக்கும் முடிச்சு போடுவது போல் (like connecting a tonsured/bald head to the knee cap – implying there is no apparent connection)… 😉
