On the Hidden Beauty of Trigonometric Functions

Jiri Stavek


In the unit circle with radius R = E0 = mc2 = 1 we have defined the trigonometric function cos(Theta) = v/c. The known trigonometric functions revealed the hidden relationships between sensible energy, latent energy, sensible momentum and latent momentum of the moving object, and the absorbed momentum from outside and the available momentum in the outside of the moving object. We present the trigonometric concept inspired by the old Babylonian clay tablet IM 55357 and based on the knowledge of the School of Athens (the fresco of Raphael) and the work of many generations of the Masters of trigonometry. The concept of the Divided Line of Plato can be now quantitatively tested. For the experimental analysis of this concept we propose to study in details the very well known beta decay of RaE to determine the sensible and latent energy (heat) of those beta particles and the sensible and latent energy of the remaining nucleus. The longitudinal momentum and the transverse (latent) momentum can be studied on the effects of the slow neutrons. The longitudinal momentum and the transverse momentum of photons can be manipulated in a convenient medium in order to prepare slow photons. The photoormi effect might improve the efficiency of the light-to-electricity conversion and the efficiency of the light-to-heat conversion.
