  • Of The Predictions Of General Relativity
    457 words
    Relativity and the Cosmos In November of 1919, at the age of 40, Albert Einstein became an overnight celebrity, thanks to a solar eclipse. An experiment had confirmed that light rays from distant stars were deflected by the gravity of the sun in just the amount he had predicted in his theory of gravity, General Relativity. General Relativity was the first major new theory of gravity since Isaac Newton's, more than two hundred and fifty years earlier. Einstein became a hero, and the myth building...
  • Einstein's Theory Of Special Relativity
    1,434 words
    Albert Einstein is known as one of the greatest scientists of all time. He has propose many great theories like the Special Theory of Relativity, the Theory of General Relativity, and E = mc 2. (Einstein is famous for these theories along with his help in developing the laser.) He also influences many other scientists in the study of quantum theory and the cosmos. Know one really will ever understand what went on in this man's mind but he was defiantly one of the greatest men of all times. The f...
  • 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 ...
  • Albert Einstein And His Theories Einstein
    2,044 words
    Albert Einstein and His Theories Einstein, Albert (1879-1955), German-born American physicist and Nobel laureate, best known as the creator of the special and general theories of relativity and for his bold hypothesis concerning the particle nature of light. He is perhaps the most well-known scientist of the 20th century. Einstein was born in Ulm on March 14, 1879, and spent his youth in Munich, where his family owned a small shop that manufactured electric machinery. He did not talk until the a...
  • Special Theory Of Relativity
    1,746 words
    REALM, S OF TIME AND SPACE The theory of relativity has been called the greatest triumph ever achieved by the disciplined imagination. When it was first proposed, in 1905, it shattered the traditional concepts of space-time, energy, and matter. Twelve years later its extended version challenged Newton's theory of gravity, replacing it with the concept of curved space. Its mathematical expressions disclosed some the nature's most intimate secrets. One of its equations became the backbone of the a...
  • Theory Of Relativity
    631 words
    Albert Einstein And The Theory Of Relativity Albert Einstein And The Theory Of Relativity Albert Einstein was known for The Theory of Relativity (E = mc^2) which in based on two principles: I. Principle of Special Relativity- All inertial observers are equivalent. II. Constancy of Velocity of light- The velocity of light is the same in all inertial systems. Albert Einstein was born on March 14th in Ulm, Germany. His mother was shocked to find out that he had a very big head. In the years to come...
  • Special Theory Of Relativity
    798 words
    My Albert Einstein Inventor Project My name is Albert Einstein. I was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany. I was not an inventor in the conventional sense. I was a physicist and theorist. My inventions were not tangible things, but ideas I put on paper and may later on have led to inventions. I was not a good student in school. I did not pay attention to teachers because I found their lectures and teachings boring. Often I would skip class to go study physics on my own. By the age of twelve I...
  • Special Theory Of Relativity
    709 words
    On March 14, 1879, I was born. My parents, Hermann and Poling Einstein, named me Albert. As a youth, I attended a Catholic primary school in Munich. I learned to play the violin at five and surpassed other kids in a lot of areas by the age of seven. Later, for college, I attended the Swiss Polytechnic Institute in Zurich where I studied math and physics. Had it not been for the help of other students, I probably would have never graduated and the world would not have known my name, Albert Einste...
