The Law of brainpower states that in a classroom, the amount of concentration that can be used on the matter at hand is:
b)directly proportional to its area,
c)inversely proportional to its strength, and
d)never big enough for the whole class
this can be shown through the equation:
n=number of students,
k= is the constant of proportionality, which can be defined as the value of discipline of the teacher
k rises as the teacher becomes more strict about discipline, and has a value of 0 when there is no teacher present.
Therefore, there is a set amount of concentration, or brain power, that can be used in a class at any one time. The law of brain power states that after the concentration limit is reached in any class, the rest of the students are distracted. If the actual concentration is greater than the theoretical limit, the one (or more) distracted students will disturb the rest of the class until the concentration is less than the limit.
To use an analogy, only a certain amount of individual brains can be switched on at any point in time. If an extra brain is switched on, another brain will switch off to compensate.
