    How smart is Einstein?

    • 1617 Words
    • 4 Pages

    There is a parlor game physics students play: Who was the greater genius? Galileo or Kepler? (Galileo) Maxwell or Bohr? (Maxwell, but it's closer than you might think). Hawking or Heisenberg? (A no-brainer, whatever the best-seller lists might say. It's Heisenberg). But there are two figures who are simply off the charts. Isaac Newton is one. The other is Albert Einstein. If pressed, physicists give Newton pride of place, but it is a photo finish -- and no one else is in the race. Newton's claim

    the German physicist Werner Heisenberg made an unexpected trip to Copenhagen to see his Danish mentor, Niels Bohr. The two were close colleagues and had worked together in the 1920s on quantum mechanics and the uncertainty principle. The setting is established as the afterlife in the beginning of the play. The three characters in the play, Werner Heisenberg, Niels Bohr, and Margrethe Bohr, come together to focus on their relationships, how they unfolded and how they affected not only one another

    Copenhagen and they all involved Heisenberg. One event was when Heisenberg completed his doctorate, and decides to come Copenhagen in 1924 in order to research the quantum mechanics with the other character Niels Bohr. The second event was when Heisenberg goes to Copenhagen to visit Bohr, and they have a discussion which jeopardizes their friendship. The last major event was when Heisenberg returned to Copenhagen after his nation was defeated and readdresses the issues that had come up in his and

    Bohr's Atomic Model

    • 877 Words
    • 2 Pages

    The Bohr model is a big part of Chemistry history. Neils Bohr proposed this model in 1913. It states that electrons orbit the nucleus at set distances. The model was an expansion on the Rutherford model overcame (Coffey, Universe Today). Neils Bohr’s model was based on his observations of the atomic emissions spectrum of the hydrogen atom (Coffey, Universe Today). His findings said that the electron can move to a higher-energy orbit by gaining an amount of energy equal to the difference in energy

    Michael Frayn's Copenhagen

    • 2077 Words
    • 5 Pages
    • 3 Works Cited

    Michael Frayn's Copenhagen suggests an approach to reading the entire work that looks at the inseparable scientific and dramatic elements of the play. Heisenberg says that no one will ever fully understand the meeting in Copenhagen between himself and Bohr in 1941; Uncertainty forever preserves the moment. Therefore, it is Uncertainty that must guide the reading of the play. Understanding the basic principle of Uncertainty is necessary in understanding how Frayn uses it dramatically. Uncertainty states

    fate would have it, he dropped it because his math professor would not allow him into an advanced class. After he dropped math, he joined physics and instantly took to an interest in theoretical physics. Werner enjoyed working out problems using the Bohr model of the atom... ... middle of paper ... ...atural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.” Heisenberg died from cancer in 1976. Heisenberg’s research has helped us better understand the

    subatomic particles that circulate around the nucleus of an atom. The Bohr model gives this explanation, claiming that an atom looks akin to our solar system. Recently, more accurate models like the Schroedinger model have come through to state that the Bohr model is not entirely accurate, and that the existence of electrons around atoms in certain places is based on probabilistic models. Despite this new information, the Bohr model can still be used to explain electricity and the motion of

    His father was a professor at the University of Munich and undoubtedly greatly influenced young Werner, who was a student at the Maximilian Gymnasium. Heisenberg had the opportunity to work with many of the top physicists in the world including Niels Bohr and Max Born. Like many of the top physicists of the time Heisenberg received his doctorate at an early age. In Heisenberg's case he received it at the young age of twenty three. Heisenberg was not just a researcher. He was also a professor and author

    • 4 Pages

    By: Christopher Kellner James Frank and Gustav Hertz received the Nobel Prize in 1925 for the Frank-Hertz experiment done in 1914. This experiment helped confirm the Bohr model of the atom by discovering the laws which govern how an electron impacts an atom. Atomic physics was a new science created in 1913 by Niels Bohr. He did this by making several new hypotheses to explain several discrepancies of glowing bodies and the radiation they emit that could not be explained by classical physics
