Ben Franklin left a long lasting legacy of the founding fathers. He showed Americans that if you try you can do anything that you want to create. He is certainly a hero of change because he invented many things that helped us back then and now. He also shows Americans about electricity. Perhaps if people were more like Franklin we would be very smart and could create things that we thought we could
At the age of 42 Benjamin 's interest in electricity ignited. He left his own printing business to focus more on scientific experiments. He handed the business over to a partner, not giving up on it entirely. Day after day Ben studied lightning and how that could go hand to hand with electricity. He put all his research into “Experiments and Observations on Electricity” published in 1752, one of the ways he prove that lightning is electricity (Biography.com).
Tesla was very clear in his determination that he was not simply an inventor, like his rival Thomas Edison, but was an innovator; he was a man who discovered new concepts and revolutionized old ideas to bring about change. Despite his self-confidence in his work, Tesla spent many years facing opposition of his ideas on alternating current. Tesla’s professor at one of the colleges he attended “who taught the courses on motors and generators claimed the development of AC motors and generators was an impossible idea” (Rybak 41). Many individuals would have given up on their hopes and dreams of making their creation come to life. Just imagine knowing that you had a revolutionary idea, yet, no one would truly listen.
Born in 1706 as the eighth of 17 children to a Massachusetts soap and candlestick maker, the chances Benjamin Franklin would go on to become a gentleman, scholar, scientist, statesman, musician, author, publisher and all-around general genius were astronomically low, yet he did just that. Franklin wrote in the Age of Enlightenment, an intellectual revolution in the 18th century. The ideals of the enlightenment are still thought of today, as they are a part of the United States’ Declaration of Independence and Constitution. When one remembers Benjamin Franklin very few people are aware of the fact that he worked as a printer until the age of 42. As a printer he had access to substantial amounts of literature.
While Franklin did indeed discover some unknown aspects of electricity, he did not actually invent electricity. Before his discovery, electricity was around and it was used, it just was not used in the same ways we use it today. Some would use electricity for their magic tricks to create special effects such as sparks. Many people believed that electricity was a strange force and that lightning was a sign of God's wrath. For the most part, electricity was not very important to the people, that is with the exception of Benjamin
The first way that the scientific revolution influenced American culture was through encouraging innovation. of knowledge started when many inventions across/came about; such as the telescope and microscope. Though these two marvelous machines, we have been able to discover the functions of gravity, magnetism, and other natural law. as some have said, we have seen the mysteries of God. In the field of science, Galvani discovered the connection between dead frog legs and electricity, in which he was able to make the legs twitch with a metal scalpel carrying an electrical shock.
Little Boy was one of the atomic bombs that were assembled this way and was powered by U-235. Thin Man was also a gun-type bomb, but unlike Little Boy, scientists strived to construct this bomb with a plutonium core (Pu-239), which did not work, so it was never
Some of his most famous works are On the sphere and cylinder, On floating bodies, and The Sandreckoner. General Marcellus’s idea for Archimedes gravestone orgininated from Archimedes studies and love for spheres and cyliders, as shown in On a Sphere and Cylinder. His other works consist of On Plane Equilibriums, Quadrature of the Parabola, On Spirals, On Conoids and Spheroids, Measurement of a Circle, and On the Method of Mechanical Problems. Though these are not his most famous works, they are still innovative writings that have shaped the mathmatical works we have today. These works tell stories of Archimedes findings and how he found them, as well as colorful stories and explanations to his
The importance of his existence remains and his name came be seen as towns, schools, and businesses, and his image appears on the hundred dollar bill. His brilliance with inventions, writing, science experiments, and stances in government enabled him to be able to do anything and become anyone he wanted. This being said, he became one of the most influential founding fathers and an easily recognizable figure of the United States, helping shape America into a great country while promoting peace for
