His science was his life, and his religion gave him insights as to how to approach science. By observing his innate curiosity, desire for simplicity and elegance, humble outlook, and desire to seek answers, we can see what elements reached the center of his being. Though Einstein was one of the greatest contributors to physical science of our times, he was by no means the most brilliant theorist or experimenter. Competent specialists within the field of physics could have better accomplished some of his mathematical deductions. In fact, he needed the assistance of a friend, mathematician Marcel Grossman, to wield the tools necessary to develop his general theory of relativity.
He studied at Harvard and was good in the classics, such as Latin, Greek, chemistry and Physics. He had published works in poetry and studied Oriental philosophy. He graduated in 1925, it took him only three years, and went to England to do research at Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. He didn’t like it there and left at the end of 1925. A man named Max Born asked him to attend Gottingen University where he met prominent European physicists.
During his undergraduate studies at Harvard University, Oppenheimer excelled in Latin, Greek, physics, and chemistry, published poetry, and studied Oriental philosophy. After graduating in 1925, he sailed for England to do research at the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, which, under the leadership of Lord Rutherford, had an international reputation for its pioneering studies on atomic structure. At the Cavendish, Oppenheimer had the opportunity to collaborate with the British scientific community in its efforts to advance the cause of atomic research. Max Born invited him to Göttingen University, where he met other prominent physicists, such as Niels Bohr and Paul Dirac, and where, in 1927, he received his doctorate. After short visits at science centres in Leiden and Zürich, he returned to the United States to teach physics at the University of California at Berkeley and the California Institute of Technology.
Because of his father’s success, this is what inspired him to work harder and find solutions to physics and atomic theory. Heisenberg attended a school in Munich until the year 1920. He went to school to study physics, later on got his Ph.D., and then got a job as an assistant for Max Born. In 1941, he was given professor of physics at the University of Berlin. When Heisenberg was only 23 years old, he discovered
During the beginning of World War II, Niels Bohr offered German-Jewish physicists refuge at the University of Copenhagen. Many of the physicists then fled to the United States in search of a safer refuge from the Germans. Denmark became occupied by Germany on April 9, 1940.... ... middle of paper ... ...ven his son Aage N. Bohr, was awarded the 1975 Nobel Peace Prize for Physics for the collective model of the atomic nucleus. His Quantum theory and atomic model are both huge impacts in the world of modern chemistry and physics. Even to the day Niels Bohr died on November 18, 1962 he was dedicated to his Open-World Vision on the safety of atomic power between nations.
His family would gift items such as his telescopes and compasses. His uncle would also, on occasional, teach him in algebra. The one man, however, who inspired him the most was Albert A. Michelson, a former navy student who refined the definition of the speed of light (Bowman 1). Later, he will be known the person whose work inspired Einstein (Bowman 1). In addition to his type of home-schooling, Einstein also went to a public school.
Rutherford stayed at Canterbury for a further year to study Physics in more detail, particularly how iron reacted in magnetic fields. He also researched electromagnetic (wireless) waves, shortly after they were discovered by the German Heinrich Hertz, and produced two papers on his findings, winning another scholarship in England. When he arrived in Cambridge in 1895, Ernest worked for J.J. Thomson, a lecturer at Cambridge’s ‘Cavendish Laboratory’. He often wrote letters to his girlfriend, Mary Nelson, and his mother, and in these he depicts how some members of Cavendish were jealous of him, or so he thought. Everywhere Ernest went, he was recognized as being a leader and thinker, with ‘amazing concentration’.
As a child Linus was always fascinated with reading and going to school. He would ask questions like “why is that?” (Marinacci) When he was young he wanted to be a druggist He would watch his father make pharmaceutical concoctions, and he said he was very fascinated at the job. He found the love of chemistry by playing with a friend’s chemistry set. He was not able to afford one so he made his own. Linus Pauling was born to Herman Pauling and Belle Darling.
While studying with Hermann von Helmholtz, James became greatly interested in the field of psychology, he was intrigued by the structure of personality, a new understanding of human potential and a field in which invigorating research was defining psychology as a new science. His work set him free from his depression which he had been suffering from, for quite some time. James went on to receive a Masters Degree from Harvard Medical School i... ... middle of paper ... ... James was awarded to lecture at Stanford University in 1906. Which is the same year he delivered the Lowell Lectures in Boston. Afterwards, publishing of Pragmatism: A New Name for Old Ways of Thinking came about in 1907.
He showed an early interest in the natural sciences, and a practical skill in building physics equipment in the family workshop. He was also an enthusiastic linguist, learning Arabic and Sanskrit. Three years later, he left schood and went to Frankfurt to gain practical experience as the beginning of a career in engineering. In 1876 He went to Dresden Ploytechnic to work. He entered Munich University to be a scientist rather than an engineer during a year of compulsory military service from 1876 to 1877.
