Transcript of Albert Einstein

What was the effect of Einstein's Theory of Relativity on the world? "Albert Einstein - Life and Discoveries." English- Online. N.p.. Web. 25 Nov 2012. <http://www.english-online.at/people/albert-einstein/albert-einstein-life-and-discoveries.htm>. Sources Used Some inventions that we may not have today if it had not been for Albert Einstein Without Albert Einstein, we probably would not have most of the things listed above. How do Einstein's discoveries affect us today? Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity is what allows us to see such sharp and precise images on our televisions today. Albert Einstein About Einstein Albert Einstein was a theoretical physicist who greatly effected the scientific community with his theory of relativity Einstein's Discoveries Einstein discovered the equation that proves mass can be converted into energy. This equation is E = mc^2 Einstein was born in Württemberg, Germany Einstein died on April 18, 1955 Instead of finishing high school, Einstein went to the Polytechnic Institute in Zurich, Switzerland Albert Einstein's teachers thought of him to be lazy, and didn't see him going anywhere with his life Born on March 14, 1879 Einstein played a major role in the creation of the atomic bomb, he was the man who wrote a letter to the president stating that the Germans were attempting to create a nuclear bomb By Miranda Stark Rosenberg, Jennifer. "Albert Einstein The Humble Genius." About.com 20th Century History. N.p.. Web. 25 Nov 2012. <http://history1900s. about.com/od/people/a/Einstein.htm>. "Albert Einstein - Biography." Nobleprize.org. 25 Nov 2012. <http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/1921/einstein-bio.html>. Albert Einstein developed the theory of relativity What was Einstein's Theory of Relativity? Einstein's theory of relativity is actually broken up into two separate theories: Special Relativity and General Relativity. Special Relativity states that it is impossible to conclude if you are moving, unless you can look at another object.
Special Relativity also states that light has a constant speed. General Relativity states that it is impossible to determine the distinction between gravity and the force of inertia from a moving object.
General Relativity also states that larger objects cause space to bend more than that of smaller objects. Einstein's Intentions of Atomic Energy Einstein wanted to use atomic energy for peaceful purposes. "The Theory of Relativity." KidsAstronomy.com's Online Astronomy Academy. N.p.. Web. 25 Nov 2012. <http://www.kidsastronomy.com/academy/lesson210_assignment3_8.htm>. When Einstein found out that the atomic bombs were used to end the war against Japan, he was devastated. How did the Atomic Bomb impact the world? The dropping of the atomic bombs had both pros and cons The surrender of the Japanese in World War 2
It gave the US an upper hand on the world, being the first country to create and use atomic energy Pros Cons Thousands of innocent Japanese were killed
Future generations suffered radiation poisoning and cancer
Allowed other countries to begin building up their nuclear arm supply How did E=mc^2 change the world? Before Einstein created this equation, the world believed that there was two 'realms' in the universe. One was the realm of energy, the other was the realm of mass. This equation proved that energy and mass are not from different 'realms,' and actually had very much to do with one another. Bodanis, David. "Everything Equals E=mc2." The Guardian. The Guardian, 29 Apr 2008. Web. 25 Nov 2012. <http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2008/apr/30/peopleinscience.energy>. The theory changed the concept of Newton's laws, Einstein's theory proposed the idea that nothing in space can be considered at rest. These things changed people's view on the world. The reference frames of special relativity had to be limited to local areas where large masses do not distort the light and masses. A conversion of light into electricity, which comes from Einstein's equation E=mc^2 allows us to use our digital cameras. Einstein's thoughts on light, space, and time allowed scientists to create many technological innovations that today we consider to be normal. Without Albert Einstein, we may not have such advanced technology. Television
