General Relativity Einstein
1,739 wordsThere is a parlor game physics students play: Who was the greater genius? Galileo or Kepler? (Galileo) Maxwell or Bohr? (Maxwell, but it's closer than you might think). Hawking or Heisenberg? (A nobrain er, whatever the bestseller lists might say. It's Heisenberg). But there are two figures who are simply off the charts. Isaac Newton is one. The other is Albert Einstein. If pressed, physicists give Newton pride of place, but it is a photo finish  and no one else is in the race. Newton's clai...

Roots Of Trigonometric Functions
816 wordsFinding roots of a function is often a task which faces mathematicians. For simple functions, such as linear ones, the task is simple. When functions become more complex, such as with cubic and quadratic functions, mathematicians call upon more convoluted methods of finding roots. For many functions, there exist formulas which allow us to find roots. The most common such formula is, perhaps, the quadratic formula. When functions reach a degree of five and higher, a convenient, rootfinding formu...

Old Ideas Of Newton And Locke
746 wordsHumanity's view of mankind and the universe around them has seldom remained constant for more than a generation or two. New technology reveals new aspects of the physical universe, and new ideas reveal the same in the human mind.

Wrong Root For The Function
387 wordsNewton's Method: A Computer Project Newton's Method is used to find the root of an equation provided that the function f [x] is equal to zero. Newton Method is an equation created before the days of calculators and was used to find approximate roots to numbers. The roots of the function are where the function crosses the x axis. The basic principle behind Newton's Method is that the root can be found by subtracting the function divided by its derivative from the initial guess of the root. Newton...
