• ## Atoms: Negatively Charged Particles

Atoms are the most basic building blocks, everything around us are made out of atoms. Atoms are so small that it can’t be found under the finest microscopes. A tiny spec of dust contains millions of billions of atoms! Even though atoms are tiny, but it actually consist of three different particles: protons, neutrons, and electrons. In every atom, electrons move around the nucleus, the combination of protons and neutrons. The idea of an atom was first discovered by the ancient Greeks, they…

• ## How Did Albert Einstein Influence Astronomy

Albert Einstein's influence on astronomy. Albert had a big influence on Astronomy. He started to study mathematics, he was lured toward calculus around 1891. Albert originally wanted to be a electrical engineer. But he failed to do pass an examination which would have allowed him to study for a diploma at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule in Zurich. He made a plan of graduating as a teacher in mathematics and physics. He got his PHD in 1905. He also created the theory of relativity. A…

• ## How Did Edwin Hubble's Work

The life and works of Edwin Hubble Edwin Hubble was born november 20, 1889, in Marshfield Missouri. When he was a child he loved both books and sports.He had a chance to be a boxer but instead chose to be a scientist/ astronomer. He is famous for many discoveries and tools used today. He before becoming a scientist he was in a war of some sort I believe it to be world war 1. He also i’m sad to tell later in life had some medical problems which resulted in his death. When he was young he was a…

• ## The Intuition Of Science

Science is intuitive. The tallest hill can be the shortest mountain. It is through our intuition that we come to know that the big ones are mountains and the little ones are hills. In some ways, the same is true for science. Science encompasses everything ranging from chemistry to archaeology, microbiology to astronomy. There are so many different aspects to science that it is hard to boil down to one concrete and concise definition. Science is involved with the study of the natural world. This…

• ## Michael Faraday And Oersted Compare And Contrast

Jacob Schuster Comparing and Contrasting Michael Faraday and Hans Christian Orsted Michael Faraday and Hans Christian Oersted were both Chemists and Physicists in the 1800’s. They both discovered the connection between magnetism and electricity. This paper will give backgrounds on both Faraday and Oersted and will compare and contrast their works. Michael Faraday was born in London on September 22, 1791. He was the first person to produce an electric current from a magnetic…

• ## Atomic Spectra Lab Report

The purpose of this spectroscopy, atomic spectra, and light lab was to further your understanding of how different gases are given specific wavelengths based on the variety of color that their light gives off. (Grossie, 285). Every ion gives off a different light configuration based on the amount of energy they hold. (Grossie, 285). A spectroscope is used to break down the light given off by the gas into different colored lines in different areas on the scope. The measure of these lines is what…

• ## Superfluid Helium Or He II: Landau-Tisza Model

Superfluid helium or He II is a macroscopic quantum fluid that exhibits extraordinary properties. %By applying the limit of low flow velocities, The behavior of the fluid can be understood using a Landau - Tisza model, where He II is considered to be a two-component fluid with independent velocity fields: the inviscid superfluid of density $\rho_s$, and the normal fluid of density $\rho_n$, where the total density $\rho$ = $\rho_s$ + $\rho_n$ \cite{Tisza,Landau}. The superfluid has neither…

• ## Wind Energy: The Future Of Renewable Energy

In 1839, a French physicist Edmund Becquerel proposed that few materials have the ability to produce electricity when exposed to sunlight. But Albert Einstein explained the photoelectric effect and the nature of light in 1905. Photoelectric effect state that when photons or sunlight strikes to a metal surface flow of electrons will take place. Later photoelectric effect became the basic principle for the technology of photovoltaic power generation. The first PV module was manufactured by Bell…

• ## Electron Microscope

Electron microscope (Manning, n.d.) is the instrument used to magnify different scientific artifacts with the used of electron beams to create the illustration of the sample, and has the capacity to magnify two million times of the original specimen. The development of the electron microscope was first known in the year 1931 because Ernst Ruska and Maximoll Knoll magnified electron image successfully, but the equipment was actually constructed in 1933 (Innes, n.d.). The concept of the electron…

• ## Brain In A Vat Theory: An Analysis

Created in 1981 by Hilary Putnam the Brain in a Vat theory is about a science fiction possibility of our brains quite literally being in a vat. Hilary Putnam uses referencing or representation, the Turing Test, the rules of language and a host of examples to establish that the statement “we are brains in a vat” is a self-refuting statement. He asks the question “Could we, if we were brains in a vat in this way, say or think that we were?” (Putnam 1981, p7) and comes to the conclusion that we…
