In 1843 James Joule read his paper to the British Association, entitled "On the Calorific Effects of Magneto-Electricity and on the Mechanical Value of Heat." This paper described the physical constant that showed that heat was a form of energy. This constant is known as "J", or "Joule's Equivalent." The unit of heat, work and internal energy are measured in joules (J). James Prescott Joule died October 11 in 1889.
Born on June 26th 1824 in Belfast Ireland, William Thomson was one of many children. He was primarily raised by his father, James Thomson, as his mother died when he was six. James Thomson raised his family in a strict Presbyterian fashion. Although his father was strict and demanding, William mangaed to maitain a close relatioship with his father. James Thomson was the professor of engineering in Belfast and later was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the University of Glasgow.
Werner Heisenberg was a German physicist and one of the most important key people involved with quantum mechanics. He was born on December 5, 1901 in Würzburg, Germany. He lived with his father Dr. August Heisenberg and his wife Annie Wecklein. His father was a professor of middle and Modern Greek languages at the University of Munich. Because of his father’s success, this is what inspired him to work harder and find solutions to physics and atomic theory.
Dmitri Mendeleev is a Russian chemist and professor who is the originator of the first Periodic Table. Dmitri is the father of the Periodic Table and the Periodic Law. He industrialized the modern and past ideas of general chemistry and revolutionized the area of science forever. Dmitri is also notorious for his textbook called,” The Principles of Chemistry”. He created this book to teach his classes in his later years of instruction.
His father also was nominated twice for the Nobel Prize in physics. His Father’s ambitions in physics sparked Niels Bohr’s interest in physics. Niels Bohr received his master’s degree in physics in 1909 from the University of Copenhagen and then achieved his doctor’s degree in 1911. He became a professor at the University in 1916, and then founded the university’s Institute of Theoretical physics in 1921. His mother, Ellen, was the daughter of a prominent-Jewish banker.
On 1893, he graduated with Mathematics and Physical Science degree. Later, he continued research on the same college receiving the B.Sc. Also received the Exhibition Science Scholarship in 1851 and was prized with the B.A. research Degree in Trinity College which is quite fascinating for his young age. Moved to Canada for a vacant spot in the Macdonald chair.
