yellowish theme for today ft. gudetama pen & lip balm which my cutie bff bought from tokyo♡ so here’s my thai literature note as always lol it’s my fav subject tbh, bc it associated with history (☝︎ ՞ਊ ՞)☝︎
there’re accounting and chinese test next week and loads of work to send ;-; anyway, hope you guys having an amazing week!
Hey! Just wondering, how did a solar eclipse prove the theory of relativity?
According to the theory of relativity space is not static. The movements of objects can change the structure of space.
In Einstein’s view, space is combined with another dimension - time - which creates universewide “fabric” called space-time. Object travel through this fabric, which can be warped, bent and twisted by the masses and motions of objects within space-time.
One prediction of general relativity was that light should not travel in a perfectly straight line. When traveling through space-time and approaching the gravitational field of a mass object, the light must bend-but not too much.
Then the English astronomer Sir Frank Watson Dyson proposed that the total solar eclipse of 1919 could prove, because the Sun would cross the
bright Hyades star cluster. Star light would have to cross the gravitational field of the sun on the way to Earth, but would be visible due to the darkness of the eclipse. This would allow precise measurements of the positions displaced by the gravity of the stars in the sky.
Because of this, teams of researchers strategically positioned themselves in two locations that would initially provide the best conditions for observing the eclipse. One group stayed in Ilha do Príncipe, in São Tomé and Príncipe, and other researchers settled in Sobral, Ceará (Brazil).
Eddington, who led the experiment, first measured the “true” positions of the stars during January and February of 1919. In May, he went to remote Prince Island (in the Gulf of Guinea, on the west coast of Africa) to measure Positions of the stars during the eclipse, seen through the gravitational lens of the sun.
The total eclipse lasted about 6 minutes and 51 seconds, during those few minutes the astronomers captured several photos of the total eclipse.
When Eddington returned to England, his data from Príncipe confirmed Einstein’s predictions.
Eddington announced his discoveries on November 6, 1919.
Shoot when it’s light out for best quality photos, because natural lighting is honestly your best friend. Taking them when it’s lighter out will also make it easier to edit them.
** A lesser known tip that I’ve learned myself is to take photos in pure light. My room is pink, so unless I take pictured in the middle of my room at noon they turn out with an annoying purple tint. it’s hard to edit that out, so I sometimes go to other spots in my house to take photos.
EXTRA: If you’re taking photos with a screen turn down the brightness. High brightness gives the screen so much glare that you often can’t see anything other than a bright spot.
Taking the photos:
I’m using a colorful planner as an example, so I’m using a white background.
EXTRA: lots of pillowcases/sheets=lots of backgrounds!
I use Aviary and vsco, and I edit the brightness/exposure, contrast, saturation, warmth, and tint. On vsco I add either the filters A6 or OC and add on the following to fit.
Brightness/exposure: turn these up depending on how bright your original photos are
Contrast: turn this up for clarity
Saturation: turn the saturation up because photos will generally look washed out after you turn up the brightness (be careful that it doesn’t look unnatural)
Warmth: always turn this down, especially if you take pictures in artificial light.
Tint: this is what I use to correct the purple-y tint that a lot of my pictures cave because of the color of my walls (I turn it greener, but I imagine it’ll be opposite if you have a green/blue room).
You don’t have to do this at all to be a good studyblr. Plenty of amazing studyblrs don’t jump through this many hoops every time they want to post. I would actually encourage you to not do all of this every time you want to post. I used to spend hours agonizing over my photos, and, believe it or not, my grades went down! Now I know how to balance the aesthetic and actual studying, but I was so caught up in how my notes looked that I wasn’t studying them. If you like to take pretty notes and photographs, then have fun with it, but definitely don’t feel pressured to do all of this if you don’t want to.
here’s my accounting notes♡ taking a break after revising by reading ito makoto’s book, it is a great book btw ヽ(*´∀｀) i think this is the first time that my post matches with my blog’s colourrr *screaming at how beautiful the colour green is*
and my ask box is always opened, if you have any question, feel free to ask me♡ here
Apologies for the long/unexplained absence. I’ve not been doing very well recently and I haven’t quite had the time to be posting. However, a small update is that I’m struggling very much with my mental health but my studies are going very well. I just wanted to thank you all for your kindness and support and I will try update more regularly from now on!
I hope you are all well and looking after yourself, and I’m sending love, hugs and good study vibes 💗
