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

    If we find that the bob does not move in the same plane, we should stop and redo the experiment again until the bob moves in the same plane. Secondly, the angle to vertical sometimes is larger than 10 degree.

  1. Physics a Nuclear Bomb

    2 As we know, the speed of light is a rather large number being roughly 3x108m/s, therefore, C2 is equal to 9x1016m/s. 1, 2 With this in consideration, Einstein leads us to believe that even the smallest amounts of matter, in fact, hold an incredible amounts of energy.

  2. 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.

  1. The physics involved with a rollercoaster.

    As more cars reach the downward slope the acceleration increases. The reason is the cars at top of the hill have a high potential energy which means a low kinetic energy. The cars at the bottom of the loop have a high kinetic energy, but a low potential energy.

  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.
