1. Napalm Death is a Band.. And an amazing one..

2. well, a photon does have mass when its moving. Only its rest mass is zero (rest mass = mass when it is not moving)

in the formula e=mc^2, we do not use rest mass. Insted we use the effective mass (mass:when its moving)

effective mass = rest mass * gamma

where gamma depends on the u :velocity(relative to the observer) of the particle in question.

gamma = 1/ [1-(u/c)^2] ;

for a photon, u = c

so gamma = infinity

so its effective mass = rest mass * gamma
= 0 * infinty

the mass of a photon is calculated as

E=mc^2 = hv ; where v=frequency

=> m= hv/(c^2) or h/(c*lambda) ; where lambda=wavelength.

hope it satisfies u

3. oops !!! my bad, thats the reply to some other post

sorry junta.

4. Thanks for the physics lesson Nitin

5. How bout "Escalator Safety" for a bands name. Not so serious but its hilarious. The other day, I was at the subway and I saw a palmflet for 'escalator safety'. lol. A whole palmflet on how to be safe when using an escalator. However, it can be useful. My grandmother is always afraid of using an escalator. Anyways, "ESCALATOR SAFETY"

6. oh, the name of a band that i am a part of is 'THE dhakkans'

7. Ok here you cannot reply to specific posts.. As in ythe post wont get inserted to the post which you reply to.. So its ok.. Anyways nice Dhakkan.. Are you from Pune??

9. lets not get into the photon mass thing again please....stick to band names, shall we ?........

10. Napalm is more of an Explosive material.. Not an Explossive as such.. Anyways No one can use that name cause its already used..

11. Theres a band here called "Mate,Kill,Feed,Repeat". I know its not their original, but it sounds cool. I might be a part of it soon.

12. nopes jayanth, i am in Kanpur :-)

napalm is an incindiery , burns very hot . is not an explosive at all . It does not expand in volume explosively .... therefore cannot be considered an explosive ... although its so hot that the air around the area it burns does expand rather quickly and is at a very high temperature ... it still cannot be considered an explosive as such ...

Just my two cents ... :-)

14. Napalm under a pressure of 62 atms Explodes your Face off..
