JOHNANNES KEPLER Johannes Kepler was a German man, who was specialised in mathematics and astronomy. He is most famous for his work on the laws of planetary motion, where he used the same base works as Isaac Newton did about his theory of universal gravitation, while he was also one of the most key figures in the 17th century science revolution. During his lifetime he worked beside and with many royalties (Princes, Emperors…). And he also made an improved version of the refracting telescope. He was religious and therefore tried to connect his work to God by saying how he created the world for certain reasons.
Also, Tesla was a germaphobe and said Edison “lived in disregard of elementary rules of hygiene.” Tesla founded the Tesla Electric Light Company and developed several successful patents. He sold most of his patents to an inventor named George Westinghouse, who had also had a feud with Edison. Westinghouse eventually helped Tesla to create a power plant in
Edison VS Tesla Name Subject Date Professor University Many believe that Thomas Edison was the inventor of the incandescent light bulb and regards him as a symbol for electrical ingenuity. But to others, Thomas Edison was only the CEO of a corporation that invented and pioneered several electric components and devices as we know them today. Edison was not so much an inventor or innovator, but an entrepreneur and businessman. Of the thousands of engineers and employees under Edison, one of them stood out among the rest. His name was Nikola Tesla.
As explanation go, alchemy appears to have been one of the strangest sciences. Almost everybody has heard about the alchemists’ preoccupation with turning everything else into gold. Using various magical processes and potions, it was thought quite possible to achieve this. The fact that no one ever succeeded didn’t discourage the ‘prospectors’ and led to an evolution of the science of materials. Beginning with 1st century AD, atleast four different cultures had the stab of it.
For example, he put iron (Fe), which is a metal, in the same group as oxygen (0) and sulfur (S), which are two non-metals. As a result, his table was not accepted by other scientists. Mendeleev In 1869, just five years after John Newlands put forward his Law of Octaves, a Russian chemist called Dmitri Mendeleev published a periodic table. Mendeleev also arranged the elements known at the time in order of relative atomic mass, but he did some other things that made his table much more successful. He realised that the physical and chemical properties of elements were related to their atomic mass in a 'periodic' way, and arranged them so that groups of elements with similar properties fell into vertical columns in his table.
EINSTEIN'S INVENTIONS CHANGED SOCIETY. DISCUSS This essay is going to give a brief history of Albert Einstein, State his inventions and also state how they have changed the society. Who is Albert Einstein? Albert Einstein was born on the 14th of March 1879 at Ulm in Wurtemberg, Germany and died on the 18th of April 1955 at Princeton, New Jersey in the United States of America at the age of 76. Einstein was a physicist, He resided at many countries namely: Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Hungary, and The United States of America.
The majority of the chapter takes place during the mid-1900s and therefore, as one might imagine, anti-Semitism was omnipresent. In one specific case where anti-Semitism affected the scientific world, György Hevesy, a Jew who discovered radioactive element tracers and a way to detect if certain elements were present in matter, was prevented from winning a Nobel Prize due to the sole fact that he was Jewish. Additionally, many of his colleagues challenged his work and prevented one of his elemental discoveries from making Weinberg 2 it onto the table. Although one might assume that the periodic table is exclusively science related and has no connection with societal aspects, Kean proves with stories such as Hevesy’s that politics in addition to many other fields shaped the table’s path. Politics helped determine the outcome of the periodic table, or so Kean claims.
The statues were found in early 1970’s in a dark cavern in Xian, located in Shangxi province (Capek, 2008). Radiocarbon dating ascertains that the sculptures date back to the third century. The idea of recreating a whole army is incredible in the sense that no one remotely had thought of such an idea before. At first, the finding was kept in secret from the rest of the world, but it quickly turned out that archaeologists had run into a discovery that they claimed to be the most significant one in the history of sculpture (Man, 2008). This find caused fascination all over the world, since it was the only exact copy of a life-sized army created by humanity.
Subsequent steam engines were to power the Industrial Revolution The first safe and successful steam power plant was introduced by Thomas Newcomen before 1712. Newcomen apparently conceived the Newcomen steam engine quite independently of Savery, but as the latter had taken out a very wide-ranging patent, Newcomen and his associates were obliged to come to an arrangement with him, marketing the engine until 1733 under a joint patent.  Newcomen's engine appears to have been based on Papin's experiments carried out 30 years earlier, and employed a piston and cylinder, one end of which was open to the atmosphere above the piston. Steam just above atmospheric pressure (all that the boiler could stand) was introduced into the lower half of the cylinder beneath the piston during the gravity-induced upstroke; the steam was then condensed by a jet of cold water injected into the steam space to produce a partial vacuum; the pressure differential between the atmosphere and the vacuum on either side of the piston displaced it downwards into the cylinder, raising the opposite end of a
George Simon Ohm (1787-1854), a German physicist, in 1826 experimentally determined the most basic law relating voltage and current for a resistor. Ohm’s work was initially denied by critics. Born of humble beginnings in Erlangen, Bavaria, Ohm threw himself into electrical research. His efforts resulted in his famous law. He was awarded the Copley Medal in 1841 by the Royal Society of London.
