This essay will seek to cover Erwin Schrödinger’s early life which leads him to a major discovery, such as the creation of quantum physics theory, the invention of wave mechanics and how this changed quantum physics forever. Erwin Schrödinger was born in Vienna, Austria on August 12, 1887. His career started when he found a strong interest and desire for physics at the age of 11 years old by one of his private tutors. This desire was to lead him to many accomplishments and achievements throughout his life. He went to the University of Vienna, where he focused mainly on the study of physics and was strongly influenced by Fritz Hasenöhrl.
Name a famous physicist, did Albert Einstein come up in mind? If not that’s because Einstein is only famous for his E=MC2. Albert Einstein has done many wonderful things besides create a formula used for atomic weapons construction.Einstein had lived a great life he was struggling as a growing child. Even being an amazing physicist he was targeted by Adolf Hitler because he was Jewish. Einstein may be a pacifist but he still made Navy-Based weapon systems that were donated to the military that was worth millions.
Now, think about if we did not have power or air conditioning. Well, Tesla, with his inventions, helped to change that, along with legendary inventors like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, and others (“Nikola”, n.d.). He did develop many inventions, important inventions too (“Nikola Tesla”, 1998). He patented almost everything, too, and he died holding over 700 patents (“Nikola”, n.d.). As I mentioned earlier, he also could have been the inspiration for wireless transmission through his failed attempt to make it (“Nikola”,
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.
The perception of human existence and its core aspects have never been the same after the developments during the twentieth century. Together with discoveries in physics and chemistry, the century has witnessed two world wars which led to millions of human deaths and other human atrocities. One of the miracles of the twentieth century was the creation of a nuclear weapon. The development of the nuclear weapons followed with further research on the hydrogen bomb as well as all the controversies surrounding the creation of the weapon. These controversies can be directly linked to some issues of moral and ethical significance.
Not only did he attack the Church, he also criticized other philosophers and their works as well. As a man of science, Voltaire looked up to and respected the works of Isaac Newton, writing many documents about his work. His works of the Enlightenment era eventually shaped Western philosophy as we know it today. Voltaire, although insane, was one of the most influential writers of the
As a teenager, he was interested in the chemicals that compose fertilizers and the pigments and nutrients of plants that lead to his eventual pursuance of chemistry through college and eventually earning himself a PhD at UCLA. After that, he went to Switzerland for post-doctorate research. Before embarking on his famous research of the Heck reaction, Richard Heck moved from California to Delaware to work and research first at Hercules Corporation before being hired to the University of Delaware as a professor. His research on Heck reaction began in the late 1960’s until early 1970’s and was already published by the time his fellow Nobel Laureate winners, Ei-ichi Negishi and Akira Suzuki, presented a variant of the same Heck reaction which used the same palladium catalyst on different base reactants. Heck’s research was not recognized greatly during that time and due to that, he lost research granted money which prompted him to retire from research.
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.
Herbert George Wells is well known for The Time Machine; a science fiction novel which is often considered to be the first of its kind. Wells’s scientific background (having studied biology and being a science teacher (Nicholson)) helped creating this story and its genre. It also contains elements of the evolution theory which may have originated from having Thomas Henry Huxley, who was a strong advocate of Darwinism, as a teacher (Desmond). Therefore, The Time Machine is a scientific tale within the scientific paradigm of the evolution theory. However, the themes of degeneration and social inequality are being dramatized and create a social critique of the Victorian era; Wells expresses his opinions and critique on (the future of) mankind and its social degeneration by employing it to the fictional characters of the Eloi and the Morlocks.
Each and every scientist has different achievements and different impacts to the world. Otto Hahn, a German scientist, is also one of the scientists who created a great impact on the world. His discovery opened up a new era in human history. In this paper, you would find out what he did and how his discovery did creates an impact to this world; but first, let’s takes a look at how did he become a scientist. On March 8, 1879, a boy was born into a glazier family and was named Otto Hahn.
