Transcript of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen

Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen By: Sean Lacsamana Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen was the person who found electromagnetic radiation in a wavelength. Today this is known as x-ray. Childhood Wilhelm was born in the city of Lennep in Rhenish Prussia on March 27 1845. He was an only child and he was the son of a cloth maker. In 1848, Wilhelms family moved to Apeldoorn and went to Institute of Martinus Herman van Doorn boarding school. Later in 1861, Wilhelm went to ambachts school. He was soon expelled from this school because he wouldn't tell who drew a embarrassing picture of a teacher. After this, Wilhelm was not allowed to go to any gymnasiums (secondary school.) In collage he went to University of Zurich where he got a Ph.D and studied mechanical engineering. After collage, Wilhelm was a lecturer at Strasbourg University in 1874. The next year, Wilhelm was a professor at the Academy of Agriculture which was in the University of Hohenheim. And the year after that, Wilhelm was a professor of physics back at Strasbourg. Early Life Experiments Some of the early recorded
experiments was with the thermal conductivity of crystals and the study of the characteristics of quartz and more. The X-ray http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/1901/rontgen-bio.html Wilhelm was most famous for making the x-ray. On November 8, 1895 Wilhelm used a discharge tube, a thick black carton, barium platinocyanide, a paper plate, and cathode rays. If he covered one side of the plate with barium platinocyanide that is in front of the cathode ray the ray became lit. Wilhelm did many experiments with this. In this process, Wilhelm discovered that many objects that were put between the ray then they turned see thrrough. Later, Wilhelm's wife put her hand in front of a photographic plate that was placed in between the rays and it showed her hand's bones and the ring she was wearing. Awards After people discovered Wilhelm's discovery, he had cities and streets were named after him. Including to many city and street names Wilhelm also had ALOT of awards. The most famous award Wilhelm recived was the nobel prize in physics in 1901. FaSt FaCtS - Wilhelm was born on March 27, 1845 and dided on February 10, 1923. Wilhelm was a shy
person and he liked to work alone. http://photohist.blogspot.com/2009/06/wilhelm-conrad-rontgen-hand-of-mrs.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_R%C3%B6ntgen http://www.nndb.com/people/550/000071337/ bibliography
