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

    The gravitational acceleration calculated will be incorrect. To prevent such error, we should prepare a projector. When we move up the bob, another student should use the projector to measure the angle to ensure it is smaller than 10 degree.

  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.

  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.

  1. The physics involved with a rollercoaster.

    When it reaches the top, it no longer receives the energy and it is all transferred to Kinetic energy 9gravity) which pulls the train down the drop. If it goes up a hill it loses kinetic energy and slows down.

  2. Investigating the acceleration of Connected Particles

    If the mass sways, the falling mass is not using its full potential. Pulling Down = m Pulling Sideways = m Cos ? * Negligible Air-Resistance - This is due to the unique construction of the trolley; low frame, compact design and no extended parts or objects disrupting the aero-dynamics.

  1. Use of technology in a hospital radiology department. The department of imaging is one ...

    All types of radiation become less intense the further the distance from the radioactive material, as the particles or rays become more spread out. The ticker the substance the more the radiation is absorbed, therefore the above three types of radiation penetrate materials in deferent ways.

  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.
