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 that contains a

THEORY OF RELATIVITY Throughout the course of life one stumbles on many questions about how things come to be and work. Asking questions is the simple part, analyzing them and formulating hypothesis/theories, is where the difficulty takes place. Many great minds of our past do this exactly, ask question, formulate theories, and perform experiments to test their theories. Great minds such as Bohr, Dalton, all the way down to Newton, have contributed to providing answers for some of

Isaac Newton Newton was born on the 25th December 1642 and died in 1727. He was born In Woolsthorpe in Lincolnshire. His father was a farmer but he died Three months before Newton was born. His mother remarried and Newton spent his childhood with his grandmother. At school he showed great skill in making model kites, sundials and windmills. In 1665 when he was 18 he went to study mathematics at Cambridge University. He continued his studies at home when the University closed be

One of the many interesting and fascinating items of modern physics is black holes. Complex and unusual, these objects have captivated many people. They have even been featured in many science fiction stories. In actuality, these objects, may be quite commonplace, and are not, in fact, a discovery of recent years. This essay will serve to describe how black holes were discovered, and briefly describe what they are. Black holes are not holes in space, nor are they uniform in size, they are unus

Research: Airplanes are an efficient way of traveling to far places. Airplanes are amazing if you know what and how the air keeps the plane airborne. There are three components of flight: aerodynamics, the Bernoulli principal and supersonic flight. Some other things about flight are the four forces, lift, drag, weight, and thrust. One of the basic things you need to know about airplanes is that the places where the plane can balance on one point called the center of gravity. The tail on the p

Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was a German-born American physicist best known for being the creator of the special and general theories of relativity and for this hypothesis concerning the particle nature of light. He is probably the most well known scientist of the 20th century. Einstein was born in Ulm on March 14, 1879 and spent his youth in Munich, Germany. Einstein was an amazing child and didn't speak till the age of three. Despite this he even showed brilliancy as a child a

Its Not Rocket Science, Its Racket Science Remember warm Sunday afternoons when everyone loaded into the car with the intention of spending some family time together? For me, being one of eight children, it was all too familiar. The entire trip was nothing but fighting over what we were going to get, and who got to pick the cereal. Once we got to the popular cereal isle my brothers, sisters, and I were in constant battle deciding between Cocoa Puffs and Trix. What did we end up with t

Page 1/3 F i b r e O p t i c s Preface Fibre optics is an emerging form of technology that uses minute fibres of glass or plastic to transmit light. The light source and method of delivery can be modified to transmit computer data, such as images and sound, or simply luminescent light. In recent years, the advancement of fibre optic technology has increased greatly. Many of these advancements, along with an explanation of the technology and societal implications will be discussed within

Genius Overlooked Jess Brock Algebra III Summer School Mr. Palumbo July 24, 1999 Stephen Hawking is, all in all, one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century. Dr. Hawking is a theoretical physicist. In his own words, "A theoretical physicist…[tries] to construct mathematical models which represent the universe." Sadly, though, his triumphs are often overshadowed by his illness. Dr. Hawking suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, an
