Lately I viewed a video from physics professor Stephen Blundell and I more or less thought like ‘may be something for a new post on magnetics’? And yes why not? Not that people like Stephen will react on this post: lately I arrived at the conclusion that physics professors are more or less the same as math professors and as such they are a bunch of overpaid incompetent shitholes. After having said that, the video is relatively good and can give a lot of thoughts to ponder.
It is important to stress that I do not want to insult Stephen Blundell, there is no reason for that at all. If Stephen thinks electrons are bipolar little magnets, he is for sure an idiot but again this is not an insult. It is just an objective observation: If a person takes for true things that are not logical on all levels of thinking, you can observe that and simply say ‘Likely just another idiot doing electron spin’.
The main reason for me picking this video is because Stephen is more or less a high IQ person, he does not use it but he is relatively smart. I also viewed a video where some other idiot explained the magnetic properties of iron by the fact that iron atoms were bound by unpaired electrons…
And compared to Stephen Blundell that is another level of how dumb can you be? It made me wonder: why do people make video’s about magnetism if they do not understand anything from magnetism? But those persons often think ‘I understand’ it is ‘unpaired electrons’…
Heisenberg magnets. I never heard from this concept of Heisenberg magnets. They are just a bunch of horizontal spins and all spins are pointing up and of course Stephen does not explain it but this should be the so called ‘ground state’. That was more or less the reason I decided to write the post of 10 pictures long. Heisenberg lived in the beginning of the 20th century so why do people still repeat weird stuff from that guy? Very simple: this is the Heisenberg from the Heisenberg uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics. Now should you worry that this important principle is also totally idiot? No, the uncertainty principle is more or less a consequence of Fourier transformations and as such you can trust that part of the science of physics.
But what you cannot trust is people like professor Stephen Blundell explaining that electrons are magnetic dipoles without giving any experimental proof at all. Gauss died long before the first electrons were discovered so can you apply the Gauss law for magnetism to electrons? Only if you have plenty of experimental evidence & proof that indeed the Gauss law for magnetism is valid for electrons.
Hey try to explain that to idiots like Stephen, what will he say after recieving such a quest for an explanation? He will simply remark that this is not needed because ‘everybody knows’ that electrons have magnetic spin and that is bipolar by definition.
By saying Stephen is an equivalence class on his own I mean that he represents the collective of physics professors that believe electrons are little magnets with a north and a south pole. Basically that is 100% of all physics professors out there because you will never ever get a physics professorship if you think that it is ´just not logical´ that electrons are magnetic dipoles. Only when you are willing to think as an idiot you can become a member of this club of physics idiots.
This post is 10 pictures long but all in all I more or less concentrated upon how Stephen explains permanent magnets. Again it is not an insult but the idiot explanation is that it is alignment of unpaired electrons. About four years back I did some experiments with that myself, after all if it is just a matter of unpaired electrons to align themselves in that case always with a strong magnet you can change a weak magnet. All this nonsense that unpaired electrons will align or anti/align themselves with an applied magnetic field faded into nonsense with my small experiment.
May be you have heard from the g-2 experiment from Fermilab that came out a few weeks ago. If you see video’s from that experiment (it is with muons and not with electrons) it all looks so highly convincing. It looks like a lot of high class physics people doing their thing and they are smart! But are they? Every time an electron or a muon enters a magnetic field they claim the spin axis starts to wobble until the spin is aligned (or anti aligned). So what to think of that? Below you see my own 100% amateur experiment where the weak magnets are hold in place with some wood. And after 24 hours waiting, non of the electrons in the weak magnet has ‘flipped’. So I wonder one more time: Why do the people from Fermilab talk about a ‘wobble’ of an electron or a muon? I don’t know and only look in bewilderment at their explanations…
Ok, like said before, this post is 10 pictures long so lets get started:
In the process of making permanent magnets in the industry, the metal is heated above the Curie temperature. A strong magnetic field is applied all the time while the metal slowly cools. After cooling down the permanents magnets are ready for use. That is one way of making permanent magnets. Another ways is the application of a very strong magnetic field for a short time, it is more like a magnetic pulse, and after that the permanent magnet is ready. This is nicely in line with electrons being magnetic monopoles.
Why do you make so much noise?
What you say, I can’t hear you!
Oh magnetic monopoles should be treated the Paul Dirac way?
Well I wish you luck with that one…
In picture number 10 you will find an important secret as why permanent magnets are permanent: The unpaired electrons are locked inside the inner shells of for example iron atoms. I hope you understand as why this is logical while the explanation given by that idiot Stephen Blundell with all electron spins aligned is something only other idiots will find ‘logical’.
I skipped an awful lot while writing this post. For example silver has only one unpaired electron and in the old Stern-Gerlach experiment from 1922 the beam of silver atoms was split in two. Silver has about 107 protons and neutrons and as such the mass of the nucleus is about 200 thousand more. Yet that lonely unpaired electron is capable of splitting the beam of silver atoms in two…
The retarded overpaid physics professors still try to explain this via inhomeogenous magnetic fields. It only makes we wonder: How can you be a full century ultra stupid?
Well my dear Stephen, why ten years in the future you will still think electrons are bipolar little magnets? In my view it is because the physics professors are mostly make up of sino’s. And a sino is a Scientist In Name Only.
After having said this all you can now enjoy the wisdom of physics professor Stephen Blundell in the next Youtube video:
Ok, that was it for this post. See you around and try to prevent this utter stupidity as people like Stephen Blundell have with all this bipolar nonsense.
