Albert Einstein Of all the physicists that have existed in the twentieth century, one of them stands out above all the rest for very good reasons. This physicist's name is Albert Einstein. This man's hard work revolutionized the manner in which scientists of today think about the natural universe. As we, the population of the world, march into the new millenium, Einstein will be the man to whom we look for guidance in further understanding this wide, confusing universe

Robert Hooke Robert Hooke lived during what some people call the scientific revolution. This was the era of Galileo, Newton, Decartes and Halley just to name a few. During this age, Physics as we know it was still in its infancy. At this time scientists were not as specialized as today. They often worked in many different areas, making small but important contributions to all of their specialities. Hooke was no exception. His interests spanned biology, anatomy, chemistry, astr

Through out the past few years lasers have been going through many innovations thus having a tremendous impact on technology . What is a laser? A laser is a special kind of light .The initials stand for ( L-A-S-E-R light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation)Only the light that is commonly know to us is the type that spreads out . Laser light is in a straight beam. There are many types of lasers , some make holograms , some have special features like long coherence length or an out

The Properties of Light Applied to Fibre Optics One of the basic properties of light is that it travels in straight lines and can have it's direction changed. This is the property which is applied to achieve the purpose of Fibre Optics which is to carry light from one place to another. The way this is done can be explained by the principle of refraction. This is the principle which governs the behaviour of light as it passes from one transparent substance to another. It state

Originaly handed in 11/6/98 Submitted to School Sucks 11/9/98 ALBERT EINSTEIN 1879-1955 Einstein 1879-1955 Probably the most recognized figure in the science world today is that of Albert Einstein. One of the few scientists who revolutionized the entire Physics field and the way we think, he is responsible for ideas as grand and complex as the relationships that exist between time and gravity, to why the sky is blue, an issue now considered to be fundamental. Albert Einst

English 301/901 Lesson 2 Chapter 13: Defining Torque Imagine pushing a door to open it. The force of your push causes the door to rotate about its hinges. How hard you need to push depends on the distance you are from the hinges (and several other things that will be regarded as negligible). The closer you are to the hinges (i.e. the shorter the distance you are from the hinges), the harder it is to push. This is what happens when you try to push open a door at the wrong end, too

Parallel Plate Capacitor and Dielectrics Different materials were placed in between the plates of a parallel plate capacitor and the change in capacitance for each of the materials was tested using a galvanometer. The results were studied to determine the dielectric constant for each of the dielectric materials and to determine the permittivity of air. By its self, results show that the parallel plate capacitor's capacitance is inversely proportional to the distance between the plates.

Human life is a very beautiful experience. The process starts with the fertilization of the egg, to the birth of a baby, through the life a person up until the death of that person. The life cycle of a star is a process that is just as beautiful and fascinating. Before the star begins its life, there are the components that will create the star. The components look as little like the star, then the sperm and the egg look like a baby. However, unlike the creation and life cycle of a human, the

Marie Curie 1867-1934 Polish-French chemist and physicist Marie Curie was born Marya Sklodowska, youngest child of mother Bronsitwa Boguska, a pianist, singer, and teacher, and father Ladislas Sklodowski, a professor of mathematics and physics. Bronsitwa Sklodowski died of tuberculosis when Marya was only 11 years old, leaving her father Ladislas Sklodowski as Marie's role model. This is where she became interested in the study of physics. Marya graduated at the top of her high school
