Dignitories Present  : Prof. A.Yadav, Director, Vidya Vihar Institute of Technology, Purnea, Faculty members- All engineernig stream and Basic sciences. In the inaugural session Prof. A.Yadav, Director VVIT introdued me and explain the importance of Physics in engineering and Technology. I also share 30 minutes of time on Basic nanoscience and Quantum Confinement phenomenon. Later on I session started with Low cost experiments.

Demonstration of simple experiments:

Typical Expts: Black body radiation , Magetic Shielding,  warm water floats on cold water, Motion of a magnets in Al-tube, Water does not fall, key-bottle experiment, Law of conservation of angular momentum, Sky appears blue, Total internal reflection in meter scale and dettol bottle, Convergence lense diverges rays, Electromagnetic wave do not propogates in conductor, Force betweem two ring magnets,  How much  1N force, Chromatic abberation, Seeback effect






Feedback from participants: Several physics Teachers asked me to devloped a low cost experiment on Super conductivity phenomenon and persistent current. I told them with the help of liquid He, we can show the superfludity. Also they have requested to me for Visit of Prof. H.C.Verma to this instute. I assure them I will request to our sir Hon’ble Prof. H.C.verma, IIT kanpur. Hon’ble prof. H.C.verma have already visited this instute in 2011.
