Albert Einstein


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

    As a result, inaccurate data is obtained from the experiment. Hence the calculated gravitation acceleration is inaccurate. To get rid of such error, we choose a less elastic or non-elastic string instead of using the old one. On top of that, there is reaction time error.

  1. Physics a Nuclear Bomb

    One of our most commonly used energy sources, most would agree to be, petrol. It's used in most combustible engines, and is precious fossil fuel which is slowly running out. The sad truth is that we only use around 1 billionth of the fuels energy because of our primitive combustion methods.

    [23] 4) If employee did not comply with the quality system of the hospital the first step of disciplinary will receive verbal reprimand from his/ her supervisor to stop the behaviour or improve the performance. Second step is written later to the employee asking the employee to stop the behaviour or improve

  1. Role of the RAF in second world war

    The Allied pilots were familiar with the terrain, cities and countryside so that if they were forced to "bail out," the chances of them returning to combat were much higher than Luftwaffe pilots. The Luftwaffe had to worry about one more problem that was hardly bothering allied air forces.

  2. Investigating the acceleration of Connected Particles

    Pulling Forwards = ? Cos ? Pulling Down = ? Cos ? * No Swaying - In the mathematical model I am going to assume that the falling mass does not sway. This uses the same concept as the rope not being parallel to the trolley.

  1. The physics involved with a rollercoaster.

    The peak value is the product of the acceleration generated by gravity and the sine of the slope of the track. Part 1 - Physics involved There are number of physics aspects I could generate form the 'Tidal wave'. However I will only discuss the two most relevant and these are the acceleration and the gravitational potential energy.

  2. The Physics of an Atomic Bomb

    Anytime a neutron or proton is captured by an atomic nucleus, the nucleus rearranges its structure. If energy is released by the rearrangement, the binding energy decreases. If energy is absorbed, the binding energy increases. The isotopes important for the large scale release of energy through fission are uranium-235 (U-235), plutonium-239 (Pu-239), and uranium-233 (U-233).
