The Famous and Brilliant, Albert Einstein, was born in Germany in 1879. Einstein was born into a Jewish family, and grew up in Munich, Germany, where his father and uncle collectively ran a company that produced electrical equipment. Later in his childhood, Einstein’s family moved to Italy, then to Switzerland not long after. In 1896, Einstein renounced his German citizenship so that he would be able to avoid the Obligatory military service.

For the dissection of the Theory of Relativity, I will be focusing on two important concepts: that of spacetime as the 4th dimension and the speed of light. The fourth dimension is called space-time because the two elements cannot be separated: as I move in space, I also move forward in time. Spacetime as a unified dimension is a smooth constant. As 3D beings we only experience a “now” and Special Relativity says each person has their own relative time (CITE). If two people were observing the same event from two different locations, it would appear that the event happened at two different times. This is caused by the time it takes for light to travel through space to reach the observer. An example of this is two people standing half a mile away from one another and hearing the siren of an ambulance traveling on the road. The sound waves reach the observers at different times and fade away from their hearing at different times. The event being observed occurs at the same instant but is perceived relative to the observer.
Albert Einstein’s theories of relativity changed what we originally believed about the physics of our world, and also added new dimensions to our understanding of physics. Einstein combined two previous theories: the Theories of General Relativity and Special Relativity, to create his Theory of Relativity. This theory changed our ideas of how to do rational science. It also added to the basis of modern quantum mechanics by stating that light really comes in little bundles of energy called quanta.
Einstein's theory of relativity is a famous theory, but it's little understood. Essentially, the theory of relativity refers to two different parts of the same theory: special relativity and general relativity. The theory of special relativity was introduced first, and was later considered to be a special case of the more comprehensive theory of general relativity. During the nineteenth century, scientists believed that light is a wave. They reasoned that waves of light need a medium to travel through, so they invented the concept of "ether." Light was thought to transmit through the ether, which stands still while all matter moves through it. In order to measure the earth's speed through the ether, Albert A. Michelson and Edward Morley collaborated on an experiment in 1887. In the experiment, one beam of light took a route against the ether and back while the other was perpendicular to the ether. Michelson and Morley expected to calculate the speed of the earth through the ether, to their surprise, the beams of light completed the course in the same time. However, the well-known Michelson-Morley experiment had failed to detect Earth's motion relative to the ether and no one could explain why. Something was wrong with the traditional understanding of relativity as it applied to light. Within this essay we will further explain both parts of the theory of relativity and their relevance in our world.
1) A stationary body will stay stationary unless an external force is applied to it; 2) Force is equal to mass times acceleration, and a change in motion is proportional to the force applied; and 3) For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. (Bio.org, 2017) He invented the optics which he helped to inspire the build of the
The Theory of Relativity, proposed by the Jewish physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955) in the early part of the 20th century, is one of the most significant scientific advances of our time. Although the concept of relativity was not introduced by Einstein, his major contribution was the recognition that the speed of light in a vacuum is constant and an absolute physical boundary for motion. This does not have a major impact on a person's day-to-day life since we travel at speeds much slower than light speed. For objects travelling near light speed, however, the theory of relativity states that objects will move slower and shorten in length from the point of view of an observer on Earth. Einstein also
Karl Marx was a German philosopher, economist, and sociologist, as well as a political revolutionary. In 1843 he began constructing the “Communist Manifesto” alongside his companion Friedrich Engels. The Manifesto began by arguing class struggles and elaborating on the exploitation of one class from another throughout history. “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.” (__) Marx explains that throughout history we see the oppressor and the oppressed in constant opposition to one another—sometimes openly and others concealed. Each time the fight ends between the two either a revolutionary reconstruction is implicated or in the classes demise. The Manifesto continues to show that the modern bourgeoisie is the product of several of th...
What was General Relativity? Einstein's earlier theory of time and space, Special Relativity, proposed that distance and time are not absolute. The ticking rate of a clock depends on the motion of the observer of that clock; likewise for the length of a "yard stick." Published in 1915, General Relativity proposed that gravity, as well as motion, can affect the intervals of time and of space.
1905, and published four of his major research papers, including his Theory of Special Relativity. This theory would later contribute to other ideas and discoveries, one of which would be the Mass-Energy Equivalence. Einstein was awarded a Nobel Prize for physics in 1921, and later immigrated to the United States in 1933, where he began his professorship at the Instit...
Since his birth, Albert Einstein has had the most beneficial effects on the events of the world. Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1979 and as a boy displayed an unquenchable curiosity for understanding science and all of its mysteries. As Albert Einstein’s life progressed, he found himself working as a patent clerk in Bern. While working as a patent clerk in Bern, Albert Einstein had a plethora amount of time which was devoted to formulating his theories. Also during this time, Albert Einstein received his Doctorate degree and started working on one of his most influential papers, which was the Special Theory of Relativity. After Einstein completed his Special Theory of Relativity, he moved onto creating the General Theory of Relativity which earned him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921. With the creation of both the General Theory of Relativity and the Special Theory of Relativity, Einstein was able to create his Theory of Relativity which comprises of both theories. Other scientific discoveries that Einstein made are the existence of the photon, the theory of Brownian motion, the concept of Mass-energy equivalence, the photoelectric effect, the first quantum theory of specific heats, the Einstein-Brilloui-Keller method for finding the quantum mechanical version of a classical system , Bose-Einstein statistics and Bose-Einstein condensates, the EPR paradox, and although his efforts were unsuccessful, in his last thirty years of life Einstein explored various classical unified field theories that could account for both electromagnetism and gravitation and possibly quantum mechanics.
Guilt is the sin that swallows the soul, darkens the mind, while piercing the heart of the beholder. Sin can not be hidden, broken, or undone. No matter if the effects are internal or external, sin has its consequences. A constant reminder of Hester’s sin is the scarlet letter, being a permanent reminder of Hester’s wrong doings. Along with this permanent symbol, Pearl, the daughter of Hester, is the outcome of Hester’s wrong doings. We confirm throughout the story that public humiliation can be the greatest form of punishment. The scaffold is the place of public humiliation for those who have sinned. Symbols in the Scarlet Letter are constant reminders of Hester’s sin, which are always playing a key role in the accumulation of guilt.
Albert Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity, or Special Relativity, was first published in 1905 in a paper with the title of “On the electrodynamics of moving bodies.” As the title suggests, Special Relativity is a theory of “moving bodies,” or motion. It is a theory of how motion is dependent on the frames of reference of the observer, which went against previous schools of thought. (Stephani, 2004) As such, special relativity is described as a theory of how space and time would be perceived differently by distinct observers from distinct location.
Athena also assisted Odysseus by disguising him as an old beggar; “She wrinkled the skin all over his body so he looked like an old man, and then she turned his clothes into tattered rags, dirty and smoke-grimed, and cast about him a great deerskin cloak with the fur worn off” (333; 448-453). Athena knew Odysseus would have been slaughtered if he had barged into his house undisguised. Similarly, Athena provides aid for Telemachus. She tells him to “sail to Pylos and ask godly Nestor [if he knows anything about your father], then go over to Sparta and red-haired Menelaus” (185; 302-303). She sends him on this journey so he can get away from the suitors and pass time by while he longs
A man. A man in jail awaiting his great fate sitting in jail just waiting because that is all he can do. He has nothing else that he can do but wait and think about what he has done to get himself in to this position. To fix it? Out of the question. He hears a door slam and footsteps as they walk down a deep empty lonely hall way. The sounds of a key unlock his dungeon door. You hear the creak as the rusty ungreased hinges squeak in agony as the door opens. In steps the bulk of the head prison guard. “Get up” he shouts, “Outside, let’s move.” Stepping outside in the first light seen in months the man covers his eyes because of the brightness. The guard gives a shove as he says, “Let’s move.” The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne is filled with symbolic elements. Three very important symbols are the imposing scaffold, alternating letter ‘A’ and the characters themselves Hester, Pearl, Dimmesdale and Chillingworth.
