|Abstract||It is shown that the Bekenstein limit, S/E< or =2..pi..R, for the entropy-to-energy ratio of matter confined by a box of size R is not needed for the validity of the generalized second law of thermodynamics. If one attempts to slowly lower a box containing rest energy E and entropy S into a black hole there will be an effective buoyancy force on the box caused by the acceleration radiation felt by the box when it is suspended near the black hole. As a result there is a finite lower bound on the energy delivered to the black hole in this process and thus a minimal area increase which turns out to be just sufficient to ensure that the generalized second law of thermodynamics is satisfied. By reversing this process, we can ''mine'' energy from a black hole. The nature of these processes is also analyzed from an inertial point of view and the mechanism by which energy is transported into and out of the black hole is explained. Analogous effects for accelerating boxes in flat spacetime are also analyzed.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
