Albert Einstein's Life and Accomplishments

- The face of physics was revolutionized by a man’s outrageous idea of relativity. He did what no one else had done by making an equation that was simple and true connecting energy and mass. He became known for his intelligence and his outspoken views, but the genius behind the theorem is what makes him so amazing. To better understand Albert Einstein, a person should examine his personal life, achievements, and his brain. Albert Einstein’s personal life was not what some would expect to be the life of a genius....   [tags: physics, relativity, einstein]

Einstein's Relativity, Literature and Perception

- Einstein's Relativity, Literature and Perception The effect relativity had on literature was that it gave a new way of viewing objects moving at speeds near light. What a person sees depends on their viewpoint. Relativity states that as an object moves faster from a relatively stationary point the object becomes warped, or a plane that flies 'straight" over a merry-go-round would appear curved to the rider. These are two examples of the way relativity causes someone to think. The biggest direct effect on literature was that relativity made time travel possible....   [tags: Physics Relativity Einstein Research Papers]

Einstein's Theory of Relativity

- Motion and time are fundamental components of life. Finding himself late to work, an employee will drive faster, which in turn, will reduce the time needed to commute to his job. The rules of motion and time are known intrinsically to every person on the planet. As children, these “Laws” become common sense. No explanation is needed when a sleeping student falls out of his desk onto the floor. Motion and time were always considered to be self-explanatory and obvious parts of everyday life. This was true until a group of scientists who deemed themselves “Physicists” began challenging the known rules of motion and explaining them using mathematics and experimentation....   [tags: physics Albert Einstein theory relativity]

- Einstein on Relativity The theories of relativity were revolutionary. Everybody agrees that Einstein brought about this revolution. Even the people that claim that Einstein just tweaked the theories of Lorentz and Poincaré, admit that Einstein was the first to recognize the physical meaning of the formulations. He understood that the terms and concepts like those of absolute space and absolute time must lose there meaning and other concepts had to replace them, if we were to be able to understand the phenomena of electrodynamics....   [tags: Papers]

Einstein in love

- Einstein in Love: A Scientific Romance When I first heard saw the title of this book, I was immediately intrigued. How could Romance be scientific. It’s one thing to have science involved in romance, or to be a romantic scientist, but as much as I played with the semantics of the title I found myself being curiously sucked into its storyline. The basic premise of this book, as one might expect from the obvious title, is young Albert Einstein’s perspective of love and romance. I suppose that is entirely plausible for even a physicist to fall in love, but, rather than detail all of the gritty mathematics of physics it portrays how even the brightest, most ingenious of us all merely seek...   [tags: essays research papers]

Theory of Relativity and the Special Theory of Relativity by Albert Einstein

- ... Particularly, the General Theory of Relativity describes the curvature of space and time as directly related to the energy and momentum of whatever matter and radiation are present. This relation is mostly specified by Einstein’s field equations which is a system of partial differential equations. The predictions of general relativity have huge differences than those of classical physics. Some of the predictions of general relativity that differ than those of classical physics are the passage of time, the geometry of space, the motion of bodies in free fall, and the propagation of light....   [tags: quantum mechanics, gravitational theories]

Instantly recognizable, like Charlie Chaplin's Little Tramp, Albert Einstein's shaggy-haired visage was as familiar to ordinary people as to the matrons who fluttered about him in salons from Berlin to Hollywood. Yet he was unfathomably profound — the genius among geniuses who discovered, merely by thinking about it, that the universe was not as it seemed.

- As the familiar story goes, Sir Isaac Newton was lounging under an apple tree on a beautiful day in the seventeenth century. Without any warning, a rogue apple fell from a high branch and struck him on the head. Despite the resulting head trauma, Newton spontaneously concluded that some force, which he named gravity, must have caused the apple to fall and thus he formulated his Universal Law of Gravitation. According to Newton, gravity acted as an instantaneous attraction between two objects that could occur over a distance of any size....   [tags: Einstein, physics]

Time Travel: The Theory of Relativity

- Those wishing to preserve the possibility of time travel must discard any hope of traveling to the past, which we will henceforth refer to as “past-travel,” due to the paradoxical problems involved in the journey. Of the many paradoxes that plague theories of past-travel, the double occupation paradox proves most severe, not only due to its underlying physics violations, but also the fact that those who argue against the paradox have failed to acknowledge its severity. The paradox holds that a time machine cannot past-travel because it would collide with its past self, as no two things can inhabit the same place at the same time....   [tags: Einstein, paradox]
