  • 18th Century Women

    New innovations and breakthroughs of the 17th and 18th centuries encouraged a small number of talented women scientists to create their own theories about the natural world. These women scientists carried out their own experiments; in addition to that they even published their results. Women in the Scientific Revolutionary era had very little proper training in the sciences, all the reading and studying was done on their own. As seen throughout time, these particular women were shamed, because it wasn’t a norm. We see a diverse fascination with natural sciences in Europe and America. These particular women can be seen shadowing male scientists during their time. Different fields of study were focused on: Botany, Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy, Mathematics, Medicine, Natural History, and so on. During this 18th century era especially, both men and women became interested in several scientific fields, this is where term naturalists came about. Naturalist will become a well known term that carries on to the…

  • Einstein's Accountability Of Education

    applied at the University of Berne, his application was returned with an insulting remark. When his reputation spread he went from becoming a full time professor in Prague and Zürich, to being appointed director of the Institute of Physics at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute. This position relieved Einstein of teaching duties, and he devoted this free time to his studies. The current education system is abysmal to American society. Teacher accountability has become unobtainable in American public…

  • Ultrafast Electron Microscopy Analysis

    Ultrafast Electron Microscopy has been demonstrated to be an effective table-top technique for imaging the temporally-evolving dynamics of matter with subparticle spatial resolution on the time scale of atomic motion. A stringent enhancement of the UEM temporal resolution is demanded for recording snapshots of the electron motion which will provide a real-time access to all microscopic motions outside the atomic core and radically change our insight into the workings of the microcosm. Here, we…

  • The Breakfast Club Problem Of Identity

    Identity has always been a problem in society. People create terms or stereotypes that become the identity of another individual. The 1985 movie The Breakfast Club showed the effects that stereotypes have on people. The five main characters were coined as a criminal, jock, basket case, brain, and princess (The Breakfast Club). All of these names that are supposed to represent their identity turned out to be wrong. At the end of the movie, the audience saw that every character was more than their…

  • Brahmagupta Research Paper

    Brahmagupta and His Significant Discovery Brahmagupta was born in 598 in Rajasthan, India and he was an Indian astronomer that may not get all the credit he deserves. Being an orthodox Hindu, he was very interested in the Hindu yuga system that focused on the measurement of the ages of mankind. Even though he mostly devoted his time to Indian astronomy, Brahmagupta when writing his books implemented a great amount of mathematics. This was seen especially in his most famous work…

  • The Time Machine Analysis

    The Time Machine H.G. Wells composed The Time Machine in 1895, a long time before time travel as we probably are aware it was even thought about. It is presumed that many would joyfully fight that The Time Machine is the first catalyst for the idea that would bring forth such well-known media as Dr. Who and the more extensive part of time travel seen in other sci-fi. That being stated, time travel isn't the purpose of Wells' novella. Rather, time travel is the casing through which he…

  • At What Position Will Its Kinetic Energy Equal Its Potential Energy?

    1. The pendulum of a clock swings back and forth. At what position will its kinetic energy be the greatest? At what position will its kinetic energy equal its potential energy? When the pendulum of a clock swings back and forth, the pendulum reaches its maximum potential energy at the top of the swing, and it reaches its maximum kinetic energy at the bottom of the swing. In the absence of frictional forces, the pendulum’s kinetic energy will be equal to its potential energy at the bottom of the…
