He was struck by lightning which can be up to 3,000,000 volts and can travel in under a second. That day he learned some basic fundamentals of electricity like how it can travel at the speed of light and that it will always try to get close to the ground by striking something higher up like his kite which is why he was struck. Electricity was first used in 1879 when Thomas Edison created the electric lightbulb. Since then ingenious inventors like Nikola Tesla, Michael Faraday, and Thomas Edison and many others have been engineering electronics for years and have helped pave the way to the modern technology that we have
Nikola Tesla vs. Thomas Alva Edison: Who was better? Nikola Tesla was an unfamed Serbian-American inventor who made many inventions based on the use of electricity more efficiently and contributed to many advances in the use of non-wired transmission of electricity as well as other methods of the transmission of electricity. His more famed rivalry, Thomas Alva Edison, was an American inventor who invented many famous inventions also based on the use of electricity, the transmission of electricity, and electrical devices. Both inventors of the ninetieth and twentieth century redefined and expanded the uses and the understanding of electricity. Both of Tesla’s and Edison’s inventions are very important to acknowledge because without them, we
Thanks to “Thomas Alva Edison” who invented electricity to illuminate the whole world. Now a days we can’t even think life without electricity. In big cities everything depends upon electricity. The use of electricity has made our life comfortable. From the use of a small LED to a huge satellite system, we depend on the “lifeblood” of electricity.
It gets energy from an electric grid. Since electric vehicles do not require burning fuel, therefore, tailpipe emission is nonexistent. These are the reasons why people like to buy the hybrid and electric vehicles as an environmentally friendly transportation. However, consumers do not realize the resources the automobile manufacturers to produce the hybrid and electric automobiles and how the lithium-ion battery creates a bad effect on the environment. All these positive aspects are shielding the truth.
Some say that we should use hydroelectric power because we have a large amount of water. Some say that we should use wind power because we can’t run out of wind. And other’s believe that we should depend on solar power to power and fuel our cars and houses. But I believe that we should use nuclear power for many reasons. Today I will first explain what nuclear power is, then I will explain to you some of the benefits of it, and finally we’ll discuss why
Without them, America might not be the same. Immigrants positively influenced the fields of science, music, and entertainment to help shape America to what it is today. Many brilliant immigrants have contributed to the field of science. However, one scientist in particular
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.
“Thomas Edison’s inventions have made profound impacts on society. Many of Thomas Edison’s inventions are held in such high regard. He is considered the greatest inventor of all time.” (Edison Innovation Foundation
Electrical & Electronic Engineering is my little dream – my goal of what I wanted to do as a career for my future undertaking. Many a time, I would ponder in admiration at the numerous engineering feats that have surfaced from time to time to continuously change the ways we do things and to improve the qualities of life of humankind. I am intrigued by the various principles of physics that created these engineering marvels and I am even more eager to know if there is anything that could be done to make them even better. As a result of self-realization and reflection, I believe Electrical & Electronic Engineering is the right choice for me. I aspire to be a part of the global community who would, perhaps, come up
ASSIGNMENT 3 Discuss the roles of technologies in promoting the scientific literacy. 1.0 INTRODUCTION Human have been evolving throughout the century, each century has given us so many inventions that bring human life forwards and thus giving us so much opportunity to make use of these inventions in future. The introduction of technology in modern life is most likely affecting all living things especially human being. The roles of technologies broaden almost every aspect in our life such as lifestyle, education, knowledge and many more. Technology comes in handy especially when it comes to promoting scientific literacy among students, educators or scientist.
