While working eight hours days, six days a week at the Swiss patent office in Bern, he wrote four papers in his spare time that changed the course of physics.
Princeton, Massachusetts German-born American physicist and scientist The German-born American physicist one who studies matter and energy and the relationships between them Albert Einstein revolutionized the science of physics.
He is best known for his theory of relativity, which holds that measurements of space and time vary according to conditions such as the state of motion of the observer.
Early years and education Albert Einstein was born on March 14,in Ulm, Germany, but he grew up and obtained his early education in Munich, Germany. He was a poor student, and some of his teachers thought he might be retarded mentally handicapped ; he was unable to speak fluently with ease and grace at age nine.
Still, he was fascinated by the laws of nature, experiencing a deep feeling of wonder when puzzling over the invisible, yet real, force directing the needle of a compass. He began playing the violin at age six and would continue to play throughout his life.
At age twelve he discovered geometry the study of points, lines, and surfaces and was taken by its clear and certain proofs. Einstein mastered calculus a form of higher mathematics used to solve problems in physics and engineering by age sixteen. He disliked school, and just as he was planning to find a way to leave without hurting his chances for entering the university, his teacher expelled him because his bad attitude was affecting his classmates.
Einstein tried to enter the Federal Institute of Technology FIT in Zurich, Switzerland, but his knowledge of subjects other than mathematics was not up to par, and he failed the entrance examination. On the advice of the principal, he first obtained his diploma at the Cantonal School in Aarau, Switzerland, and in he was automatically admitted into the FIT.
There he came to realize that he was more interested in and better suited for physics than mathematics.
Einstein passed his examination to graduate from the FIT inbut due to the opposition of one of his professors he was unable to go on to obtain the usual university assistantship. In he was hired as an inspector in the patent office in Bern, Switzerland.
Six months later he married Mileva Maric, a former classmate in Zurich. They had two sons. It was in Bern, too, that Einstein, at twenty-six, completed the requirements for his doctoral degree and wrote the first of his revolutionary scientific papers.
Famous papers Thermodynamics the study of heat processes made the deepest impression on Einstein. From until he reworked the foundations of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics the study of forces and their effect on matter ; this work formed the immediate background to his revolutionary papers ofone of which was on Brownian motion.
In Brownian motion, first observed in by the Scottish botanist scientist who studies plants Robert Brown —small particles suspended in a liquid such as water undergo a rapid, irregular motion. He was guided by the thought that if the liquid in which the particles are suspended is made up of atoms, they should collide with the particles and set them into motion.
He found that the motion of the particles will in time experience a forward movement.Albert Einstein's name has become synonymous with genius, but few elementary students understand much about his methods or ideas.
This book portrays Einstein first and foremost as a curious thinker—someone whose ideas and imagery changed over time as he furthered and influenced scientific thought and understanding in profound ways.
Revolution in science – New theory of the Universe – Newtonian ideas overthrown. Honors and More Honors.
Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds of the 20th century, forever changed the landscape of science by introducing revolutionary concepts that shook our understanding of the physical world.
One of Einstein's most defining qualities was his remarkable ability to conceptualize complex scientific ideas by imagining real-life scenarios. Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was one of the greatest brains ever to come to the 20th century.
Einstein contributed to the 20th century more than any other scientist ever. His theory of relativity is held as the highest quality of a human thought ever to come. Einstein submitted one of his scientific papers to the University of Zurich to obtain a Ph.D.
degree in In he sent a second paper to the University of Bern and became lecturer there. In he sent a second paper to the University of Bern and became lecturer there.
It was a hundred years ago this November, and Albert Einstein was enjoying a rare moment of contentment. Days earlier, on November 25, , he had taken to the stage at .
