Albert Einstein was the most influential person in the making of the atomic bomb. His theory of relativity E=MC2 and other theories he made were the most influential in discoveries scientists made about energy and its forms. Albert Einstein left behind the biggest legacy ever. Albert Einstein was born March, 14th 1879 in Ulm Württemberg Germany. Einstein’s parents Hiswere Hermann Einstein and Pauline Einstein.
Bohr’s atomic model was one of the best created and devised scientific models of the atom in his lifetime considering it brought a large amount of new knowledge to the scientific community. For the previous reasons that are stated above they show why his model of the atom and how everything works together couldn’t necessarily be the correct model because it didn’t follow the previous rules that were discovered and tested on the atom that were found to be
Albert Einstein by Karin Ireland tells the story of Albert Einstein’s life. Albert Einstein was an incredibly smart scientist who was born in Germany. He made many observations including finding a flaw in one of Isaac Newton’s laws, a law about gravity pulling on things without mass. After many years of hard work and negativity directed at him, he finally became successful and famous for all his findings and intelligence. Albert Einstein was a very successful man for being inquisitive, intelligent, and devoted.
His discovery of calculus has led the way to more powerful methods of solving many problems in Science and Mathematics. His work in optics included the study of white light and the discovery of the color spectrum. It was his experiments with different kinds light that first made him famous for what he is today. About twenty years later, Sir Isaac Newton presented the three laws of motion, that he came up with, in the Principia Mathematica Philosophiae Naturalis. We still use Sir Isaac Newton’s law everywhere.
The contributions 19th century physicist Lord Kelvin made in determining the age of the Earth is an example of how constructive disagreement was used to produce robust knowledge (Lamb). His findings were at odds with the ideas of 19th century geologists who believed that the Earth “had been around forever”, and although his estimates were not accurate, Kelvin’s methods paved the way for the future production of robust knowledge in the physics field (Lamb). From this example, it is evident that constructive disagreement is essential to the production of robust knowledge in the natural
Nikola Tesla dedicated his life to improving not just the scientific field of physics, but also how people lived their lives. Through his discoveries in commercial electricity, Tesla changed the world in the 20th century and molded the way technology was used. His contributions to electricity, most notably the alternative-current (AC) electrical system, are still widely-used today in contemporary society. Most people today have heard the Tesla name through the renowned Tesla motors, but few understand the impact that Nikola Tesla left in modern science and technology. Tesla was born on July 10, 1856 in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, what is now Smiljan, Croatia, to an Orthodox priest and a mother who invented home appliances.
Distinguished for his accuracy and precision, English scientist Henry Cavendish is one of the most influential experimental and theoretical chemist and physicist of the eighteenth century and has had a lasting impact on science today. Although born in Nice, France, Cavendish lived, and later died, in Great Britain, where he attended Cambridge, but left without a degree. Instead, he opted to conduct research in his father’s Lord Charles Cavendish laboratory, where he made most of his notable discoveries, although much of it went unpublished due to his shy personality, which has led many historians to believe that he had Aspergers (Kaufmann, 2008). However, his achievements in several areas of research, including chemistry, optics, electricity, physics, and mathematics, was later published posthumously by James Maxwell. Of these, the three that have a lasting impact on modern science is his discovery and detailed
Stuart Wire Hellard Pre-Ap Honors Chemistry 11/29/2015 Otto Hahn Otto Hahn was a German chemist that lived from 1879-1968. He discovered many important things including nuclear fission. He won the Nobel Peace Prize once and was nominated for the award several times. He is referred to as the Father of Nuclear Chemistry. Otto was born in Frankfurt Germany on March 8, 1879 and he died on July 28, 1968.
But let’s see if this method for our planet truly does work. Recycling wasn’t so very practical practice back then in the 18 th century why is this so certain simple fact that was the time the industrial age took flight at Europe but specifically in British colonies. But mankind gave no thought over the concept of recycling in that time of those early ages there was no need for that because earth would stay in optimal condition. Seeing the investments where all towards industries mankind competed nations against nations who would create more economy who would be the nation above all. Yes, it is a truly big step of advancement, but did it help our world did make it a better place for the future generations yet to come who will be the future of our times.
The 1910’s were a time of great change and exploration, and a time of immense competition among inventors and scientists. Undoubtedly one of the greatest races was the one to lead science and change the world with one’s mind. A particular invention, X-ray crystallography, revolutionized science starting in 1915 and continuing its impact to today. Beginning with Max von Laue, a struggling physicist, and falling into the hands of the father-son duo William Lawrence and William Henry Bragg, the two scrambled to formulate and advance the x-ray process. By crystallizing molecules and atoms, they were able to diffract light and produce three dimensional models of molecular structures.
