  • Forces Act As String Theory
    968 words
    String theory is defined by Merriam-Webster as, "A physical theory in which one-dimensional loops travel through space and also merge and lyse as time elapses. This is in contrast to ordinary quantum field theory, which predicts point particles that emit and absorb each other. String theory is a candidate for a Theory of Everything". String theory would solve the long fight between Einstein's theory of relativity and Quantum Physics. String theory proclaims that everything in our universe, from ...
  • Einstien's Theory Of Light Quanta
    868 words
    Albert Einstien (March 14, 1879 - April 18, 1955) was a physicist who first proposed the theory of relativity. He was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for his explanation of the photoelectric effect 'and other contributions'; however, the announcement of the award was not made until a year later, in 1922. His theoretical work suggested the possibility of creating an atomic bomb. His discovered equation, E = MC 2 is well known as one that changed the world. Einstien was born March 14, 1879 at Ulm in ...

    The Evolution of the Atomic Theory Rob CongroveB 4 10/23/00 The five atomic theory's of the past two centuries represent the sudden advancement of science in modern times. Begining with a basic theory on the behavior of atoms to the current model, some changes have been made, and some ideas are still the same. Ancient Greek philosophers be lived that everything was made up of invisible particles called at mos. Since then the theory of atoms did not progress untill 1803. John Dalton was the first...

    The Or gins of Atomic Theory By Levi PulkkinenThere is an eternal human compulsion to unlock the mysteries of our lives and our world. This search for knowledge has guided us to many beneficial new understandings. It has lead us into this new age where information is its own reward, an age where enlightenment is an end, not simply a means to an end. Enlightenment has been the aim of many great people. It has inspired many scientists and artists to construct articles of infinite beauty and value....
  • Atomic Theory Of Matter
    493 words
    John Dalton John Dalton was a great help to modern day chemistry. He was born in 1766 in the small town of Eagles field, Cumbria, NW England in the UK. He was a chemist that stated an atomic theory of matter, which is now the theory of modern day chemistry. Besides his theories, he published the first major book of the studies of color blindness; which affected him. The book was published in 1794. He first stated his theory in 1803: that each chemical element is composed of its own kind of atoms...
  • Sensed Object Causes Some Of The Atoms
    1,377 words
    Atomism: Democritus and Epicurus Philosophy 116 October 17, 1996 In the Atomists, we see pluralism taken as far as it could possibly go. We see Democritus and Epicurus divide all the world, as well as the universe, into two categories; atoms and empty space. Everything else is merely thought to exist. The atoms are eternal, infinite in size and number and they a removing through the empty space. There is no motion without empty space. Both Democritus and Epicurus agreed that motion was impossibl...
  • Particle Theory Of Light
    867 words
    Many incredible theories about the structure of the atom arose during the turn of the 20th century. Physicists from across the globe searched for answers to so many unknown ideas about the atom. Each time a new idea came about the questions would not stop there. It would only lead to another hypothesis and therefore lead to another quest to find answers. Though the rest of the world was reluctant to embrace the new ideas of the physicists of their time, the theories developed were important step...
  • Yen Atom And Yen Qi
    2,263 words
    Atom & Qi The atom is the smallest portion of a substance that is not perceivable by human senses. The notion of atoms was conceived by ancient Greeks and was developed over thousands of years of scientific inquiry. The concept of qi as the most basic substance of which the world (everything) is comprised, was understood by the ancient Chinese. Both! yen atom! | and! yen qi! | are believed to exist by human beings and both are considered to be unseen objects (until we could see atoms recently). ...
  • Dalton's Atomic Theory
    544 words
    John Dalton (1766-1844) Around September 2, 1766 John Dalton was born. He was born in Eagles field, England. Dalton was most known for the development of the modern atomic theory. Dalton was taught at his early ages of learning by his father and a Quaker teacher whom in 1778 Dalton would replace him after he retired. He quit that job and left his village to work with his cousin in Kendal, but he stayed a teacher. In 1793 he moved to Manchester, this is where he would remain the rest of his life....
  • Weight Theories Of The Atom
    588 words
    The notion of the atom all stared about 450 BC when a Greek scholar starting think when can something break on more, when are the pieces at their smallest, this mans name was Leucippus. Leucippus also had pupil who also thought the same way as Leucippus, his name was Democritus. They developed there ideas and when Democritus died his theory summed up briefly was that everything in the world was made of tiny pieced that could not be broken up any more. That how the word atom was derived from the ...
  • Fissionable Uranium 235 Atoms
    4,754 words
    I. Introduction Where did the atomic bomb come from? In this paper, I will look at the development of the ideas needed to create an atomic bomb. Specifically, what did scientists need to know for them to theorize that a cataclysmic explosion would result when a critical mass of certain elements undergo a chain reaction of nuclear fission. However, I will only look at scientific ideas generally, as they progressed towards fission. This development of ideas was propelled by genius, persistence and...
  • Theory Of Atoms In Molecules
    462 words
    The molecular structure hypothesis - that a molecule is a collection of atoms linked by a network of bonds - was forged in the crucible of nineteenth century experimental chemistry. It has continued to serve as the principal means of ordering and classifying the observations of chemistry. The difficulty with this hypothesis was that it was not related directly to quantum mechanics, the physics which governs the motions of the nuclei and electrons that make up the atoms and the bonds. Indeed ther...
  • Dalton's Atomic Theory John Dalton
    393 words
    Dalton's Atomic Theory John Dalton developed the first useful atomic theory of matter around 1803. In the course of his studies on meteorology, Dalton concluded that evaporated water exists in air as an independent gas. Solid bodies can't occupy the same space at the same time, but water and air could. If the water and air were made of discrete particles, evaporation might be viewed as a mixing of water particles with air particles. He performed a series of experiments on mixtures of gases to de...

  • Atomic Theory
    1,262 words
    In ancient Greek the word atom meant the smallest indivisible particle that could be conceived. The atom was thought of as indestructible; in fact, the Greek word for atom means "not divisible". Knowledge about the size and make up of the atom grew very slowly as scientific theory progressed. What we know / theorize about the atom now began with a core theory devised by Democritus, a Greek philosopher who proposed that matter consisted of various types of tiny discrete particles and that the pro...
  • Dalton's Work With The Atom
    695 words
    John Dalton once made this famous quote on his work concerning the atom, We might as well attempt to introduce a new planet into the solar system, or to annihilate one already in existence, as to create or destroy a particle of hydrogen. John Dalton was a British chemist and physicist, who developed the atomic theory upon which modern physical science is founded. Dalton, a Quaker, was born on September 6, 1766, in Eagles field, Cumberland County, England. He received education from the village s...
  • Einstein's Theory Of Relativity
    1,022 words
    Scientific development in the 1800's In the 1800's there were mainly five main areas of scientific development: knowledge about the atom, the quantum theory and Einstein's theories, knowledge about the cell, theories of evolution, genetics and medicine. In 1803 John Dalton was the first person to get experimental evidence of the atom's existence. He also developed a method for weighing atoms. In 1869 Dmitri Mendeleev made the first workable classification of the atoms, the precedent of the moder...

  • Energy Levels Of Electrons Outside The Nucleus
    948 words
    In the beginning of the 1800's John Dalton, an English scientist did work some work on gases, which lead him to the creation of a complex system of symbols for all known elements at the time. He took all the information he had collected, along with the Laws of Conservation of Mass, Definite Composition and Multiple Proportions and updated Aristotle's theory of matter with the Atomic Theory of Matter, which stated: – All matter is composed of tiny, indivisible particles called atoms. –...
