Introduction

Albert Einstein

image00.jpg

Albert Einstein is renowned for developing revolutionary theories of physics such as the general theory of relativity this is why he is inspirational and also because he did not do very well at school, but yet came up with revolutionary ideas. He also possessed a keen sense of social responsibility. His humanitarian efforts assisted Jews who had escaped from the clutches of Nazi Germany during World War II.  Albert was intrigued by the needle of the compass. He wondered what forces were at work to make the needle always point north. The compass made a deep and lasting impression on him.Einstein was interested in the relationship between electricity and magnetism (electromagnetism) because

  1. Factors affecting the speed of a trolley Travelling down a ramp.

    Acceleration and force are vectors; in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector. The trolley is pulled towards earth by the force of gravity. The direction of gravity is downwards, the direction that the trolley is going is also downwards.

  2. The physics involved with a rollercoaster.

    At E, the car has the greatest slowing. (See the graph of acceleration and velocity) The slope of the velocity-time graph is the acceleration. As the graph shows when the velocity increases and the slope of the graph is positive, the acceleration is positive, such as in sections A, D and E When the velocity decreases and the slope of the graph is negative, the acceleration is negative.

  1. Objectives: To determine the center of gravity of a body of irregular shapes

    I think that the reason is the size and the shape of the board. The L-shaped board is much wider than normal one: Normal one experiment As a result, the center of gravity of the L-shaped board used in the experiment is inside the board body.

  2. Investigating the acceleration of Connected Particles

    To accelerate the trolley a light inextensible string will be attached to the trolley, which will then be run over a smooth pulley. At this end of the string masses ranging from 20g - 80g will be attached which will accelerate the trolley.

  1. Physics a Nuclear Bomb

    These ejected electrons are called the beta particles. 1, 7 To understand the immense power withheld in Atomic bombs such as Little boy and Fat boy the best place to look is at Einstein's relationship between Mass and Energy E=MC2, where E=Energy (J), M=Mass (Kg), and C=the speed of light (m/s).

  2. Role of the RAF in second world war

    The high Luftwaffe casualties in comparison to allied forces were a large advantage for the Royal Air Force and its allies. The only objective for scrambled Allied fighter pilots was to intercept inbound Luftwaffe air raids while the Luftwaffe fighters had to stay with the bombers to provide escort.
