Einstein left behind the biggest legacy ever not only did he change scientists thoughts on physics forever but he answered many questions scientists had based around physics and energy. Einsteins legacy also includes him indirectly helping Robert Oppenheimer create the atomic bomb with his special theory of relativity that helped because in a way it says a large amount of energy can be released from a small amount of
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.
For my hero I chose Albert Einstein, the German physicist and scientist who made many essential contributions to the scientific world. Albert Einstein was born in 1979 in Ulm, Germany to a poor family, his family was secular Jewish which would make a big difference in his life in the 1940’s. Albert Einstein is considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century with his theory of relativity and major contributions to the development of atomic energy. Einstein ended up helping everyone around the world, thanks to his theory of relativity almost everyone in the world can have electricity in their homes and workplaces. Albert Einstein also helped in the making of the atomic bomb during WWII which would eventually end the war and save many lives, also destroying entire japanese cities.
Do you ever tire? God, look at you, iron is what you are made of. Here we all are, half dead with weariness falling asleep over the cars and you say no landing-no firm island earth where we could make a quiet supper”(pg;839 L162-168). Many storms came and went so instead of wanting to stay there for two days, they stayed for two months. Eurylochus got what he deserved because Odysseus told them to swear they wouldn 't eat the cattle and they all told Odysseus they wouldn 't.
He regarded him as an accomplished experimentalist and also observed the muscle of his intuition. “I believe that Newton could hold a problem in his mind for hours and days and weeks until it surrendered to him its secret” (Keynes, 1942). Keynes believed that Newton was a magician. Newton imagined the universe as a riddle made to the whims of God, the Almighty, and left it to mankind to unravel the mysteries of this universe. The answers of these riddles could be revealed by applying pure thought by means of certain evidence.
Kira Farmer AP11 Research Paper 3.19.2015 Galileo: The Father of Modern Science Every day, students, teachers, doctors, and scientists ponder the great minds of the past with respect. Perhaps one would consider Albert Einstein, Aristotle, Archimedes, Nikola Tesla, or Sir Isaac Newton. How many of today’s world population would consider Galileo Galilei to be the world’s most renowned and influential scientist in world history? Not only did Galileo invent hundreds of things society still uses today. He also put his safety, sanity, and freedom on the line so that the rest of the world and the future world could have truth.
And finally Alan Turing he makes a new machine which can crack the Nazis code. He saved many peoples life and he made England win the war. So he is a big hero. But he is a homosexual and homosexual was illegal in England at that time. So is he criminal or is he a hero?
Ernest’s contributions include: the invention of the early detector of radios waves, discovered the principle of half-life and that atoms were indestructible, etc. In an article called “Ernest 10 Major Contributions to Science” by Anirudh it states that “Rutherford discovered that every atom contains a nucleus where its positive charge, and most of its mass, is concentrated. His model of the atom thus contained the new feature of a relatively high central charge concentrated in a small volume of the atom and responsible for most of its mass.” With the help of the gold foil excitements he was able to figure out that an atom had a nucleus with a mass and a positive charge. Anirudh’s article also states that, “In 1917, Ernest Rutherford became the first person to deliberately transform one element into another.” He was able to to create the first nuclear reaction by converting nitrogen atoms into oxygen atoms with the help of alpha radiation. This helped prove his theory of the proton’s existence because when the alpha radiation occurred it turned the old element into a new element by removing two protons.
Kurt Vonnegut is known to be one of the best American authors of all time. Critics not only love his writing style and his ability to tell a story, but they adore the way he can turn a simple story into a lesson that goes way beyond the pages. Born in Indianapolis, Vonnegut attend Columbia University and even spent some time in the military. He says this helped show him what war was like, and he hated it. Vonnegut’s hatred of war is a very common theme he expresses in many of his works.
Leonhard got his first education in mathematics at home from his dad, as his father was also interested in mathematics and studied from Jakob Bernoulli at university. At the age of 13 Euler entered the University of Basel and took courses from famous Professor, John Bernoulli, younger brother of Jakob Bernoulli. Euler was not limited to Mathematics; he also did Master’s degree in Philosophy. In 1727 he joined St. Petersburg Academy where he continued his research with Daniel Bernoulli in mechanics and physics and was able to publish his work in the respective field. Euler was dedicated to his work.
