    De morgan's laws

    In my textbook, the proof for demorgan's law, (AintersectionB)* = A*unionB* [*=complement] starts with,saying that for all x belongs to (AintersectionB)* , x is not a member of AunionB. But how can we say that, for example, if A = {1,2,3} and B = (2,3,4,5} and U = {1,2,3,4,5}...

    Absence of an electron at a point creates a positive charge

    I can't understand how does the absence of an electron at a point creates a positive charge there. In my opinion, it is wrong on account of conservation of charge. Because if we consider an electron(at a point A) as a system, and if the electron get displaced to another point B(in the system)...

    Exam question

    Q:Prove that a square matrix A is invertible iff A is non singular. My Ans: Since the inverse of a square matrix is given by, A^ = (1/|A|)adj.A (Where A^ is A inverse) If |A|=0, A^ is not defined. i.e, A^ exist only if A is non singular. In other words, a square matrix...
