J. Robert Oppenheimer Imagine how famous you would be if you were intelligent enough to help hundreds of scientists and physicists assemble nuclear weapons? Physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer must have felt the same way During World War II. Julius Robert Oppenheimer was born on April 22, 1904, in New York City. He was known as "The Father of the Atomic Bomb" because of his assistance with assembling nuclear weapons during World War II. He is also known for the Born-Oppenheimer Approximation; the assumption that the electronic motion and the nuclear motion in molecules can be separated.
Einstein was born at Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879 b. Who was Albert Einstein/Achievements to the scientific world? i. Are you familiar with his contributions do science? 1. developed the theory of relativity, he was a mathematician and he’s greater known in theoretical physics.
“Satisfaction of one's curiosity is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life.” This is a quote by Linus Carl Pauling an American chemist who has made many beneficial scientific finding. Linus Pauling was a curious child and set off to satisfy that growing hunger for knowledge. Pauling’s curiosity in science, specifically chemistry, became one of the greatest sources of happiness in his life like he said. Pauling’s interest in science and his need to satisfy it ended him up with two Nobel Prizes in his lifetime, a rare feat. Linus Pauling curiosity of science, has jumped-started the world of modern chemistry and molecular biology and has made important advances in medical research.
His accomplishments in the field of science truly changed the way people saw the world. Franklin’s kite experiment proved to us that lightning is in fact electricity. He invented the lightning rod soon after which protected homes and buildings from lightning (History.com). Ben wrote a book about his experiments on electricity, that became extremely popular and even formed the basis of modern day electricity theory (Compton’s, p. 382). Not only did Franklin leave a great legacy as a scientist, but he also changed the course of American
Immigrants have positively affected America today in areas of technology/science, jobs, and religion. One immigrant that has positively affected science in America was Albert Einstein. His numerous scientific discoveries revolutionized the foundation of science. One major discovery he made was his general theory of relativity. He predicted that the force of gravity causes a curvature in space and time.
Thesis Statement and Supporting Reasons Thesis: As a result of the urgency of World War II, an immense amount of resources were provided to the Manhattan Project that ultimately lead to success in America’s creation of an atomic weapon. Reasons: Assembled together for the Manhattan Project, scientists from several different nations banded together to research and design the atomic bomb. Scientists came from America, Germany, Italy, and Austria Many fled in danger of religious or ethnic persecution (Roleff 57). The scientists were able to enlist the help of Albert Einstein in order to gain support for the Manhattan Project (McKain 18). Enrico Fermi and Leo Szilard created the first nuclear pile in Chicago, 1942 (Roleff 54).
He made a book called, “Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica” which was published in 1687. He also made pathbreaking contributions to optics that he shares credit with Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz for developing the infinitesimal calculus. Newton formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation that dominated other scientists’ views on the physical universe for the next 300 years. Using the same principles to account for the trajectories of comets, the tides, etc; Newton removed the last doubts
Tycho Brahe was an eminent danish astronomer and alchemist. He developed various instrument such as great globe in the 1580, armillary sphere in 1581, triangular sextant in 1582, use for astronomy. He was born at Khutstorp castle, Scania in 1546. He received his early education in a Latin school. Brahe stepped into university of Copenhagen when he was only twelve years old.
In 1939, the scientific community, specifically German physicists had learned the secrets of splitting a uranium atom (The Manhattan Project” 2015). America realized that Adolf Hitler’s Germany obtained a massive amount of scientific talent. With their access had necessary raw materials and knowledge of the splitting of the uranium atom, they had the industrial capacity to produce an atomic bomb(“Manhattan Project”2014). The atomic bomb would eventually become the turning point of weaponry during World War II. On October 11, 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt received a letter from Albert Einstein about the splitting of the uranium atom which could be beneficial in developing weapons for America during World War II.
The Unintentional Murder Do you believe in superstitions? Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat” gives us accounts of bad luck and death often thought of as being associated with a black cat. The narrator, imprisoned for murder, struggles with the evil inside of him which leads to animal cruelty and eventually the barbaric murder of his adored wife. Alcoholism, mental instability, and increased violent behavior lead to the unintentional murder of his wife. The narrator suffers from alcoholism.
At a young age, Franklin was a determined. He would become his brother’s apprentice in his printing press company. This would inspire him to establish his own printing press which would be well known throughout all the colonies. He was then given the rank of postmaster, which made him the head of all the post offices in the colonies. He was very interested in pursuing science and enjoyed inventing; this curiosity of science would lead him to be the first to discover electricity.
Tyge (Latinized as Tycho) Brahe was born on 14 December 1546 in Skane, then in Denmark, now in Sweden. He was the eldest son of Otto Brahe and Beatte Bille, both from families in the high nobility of Denmark. He was brought up by his paternal uncle J rgen Brahe and became his heir. He attended the universities of Copenhagen and Leipzig, and then traveled through the German region, studying further at the universities of Wittenberg, Rostock, and Basel. During this period his interest in alchemy and astronomy was aroused, and he bought several astronomical instruments.
This would not have happened if it wasn’t for a Hungarian physicist named Leo Szilard and Albert Einstein. Szilard was born in the year 1898, and he served World War I before moving to Berlin to study physics. The beginning of the century, Germany was the Mecca of scientist, and in 1933, won ninety-nine Nobel Prizes for science with eighteen for England, and six for the United States. Szilard saw their work and went to London, where he brought a refugee scientist to British university. Same year, Hitler came to power, where he took over Germany and killed the Jewish.
German scientists like Albert Einstein, Neils Bohr, and Ernest Rutherford were the first to aid in splitting the uranium atom that was necessary in creating the atomic bomb. These scientist were Jews, therefore during the Holocaust, they had to flee from Germany to America. The American scientists, many of whom came from fascist regimes in Europe, organized a project to exploit the new fission process for military purposes. This took place in 1939 when a conference between Enrico Fermi and the Navy Department was arranged. By the summer of 1939, Albert Einstein presented to Pres.
Rough Draft Jacob Berry In 1941, is the year the Atomic bomb changed warfare and human life forever. Many projects around the United States worked on the race to create the atomic bomb. One project, The Manhattan Project, led by Julius Robert Oppenheimer, created enough U-235 to create one of these deadly weapons. The Atomic bomb should be eliminated and banned around the world to stop the potential destruction of our world. Julius Robert Oppenheimer, a scientist from New York, grew up in a rich household with access to the best schools.
