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 the angle is larger than 10 degree, the displacement is not equal to sin?, hence the motion of the bob does not obey to the definition of SHM. As a result, the bob does not perform SHM., the data and the equations are not suitable in the calculation process.

  1. 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.

    Receptionist this are who deal with client by giving information and directing client to get to the right department also assist people by arranging appointment for the next visiting to the hospital, register new client and put their detail in the hospital administration system confidentially, and welcoming people with grate altitude.

  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. The physics involved with a rollercoaster.

    "Phrases like, '...slow down..., ...speed up..., ...change speed... and change velocity...'are used to describe acceleration" (According to General)The cars are pulled by a chain to the top of the highest hill along the track. Then they are released from the chain. As the front car begins its decent, the unpowered cars have almost no speed and only a small acceleration.

  1. 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.

  2. The Physics of an Atomic Bomb

    The binding energy of these three isotopes is so low that when a neutron is captured, the energy released by rearrangement exceeds it. The nucleus is then no longer stable and must either shed the excess energy, or split into two pieces.
