  • Alchemists Chemical Reaction

    Alchemists used to obsess over chrysopoeia, the transmutation of regular metals, such as copper, into gold. However, they were not aware at the time that copper and gold were two different atomic elements and instead believed them to be compounds. Thinking these metals could be changed chemically or physically in labs, alchemists pursued this dream to no advantage. Although it is not possible to change ordinary metals to gold through chemical reactions, physical reactions, radioactive decay, or nuclear fission, it is possible to change them through nuclear fusion. Common metal such as copper cannot go through physical reactions to turn into gold because the substance would only change phase. A physical reaction is the rearrangement of molecules…

  • What Is Albert Einstein's Contribution To Mathematics?

    thinking in pictures then understanding words . well okay that a little about his child hood. Albert’s Adult hood he publishes four ground breaking works in the “Annealed der Physic” and I guess that’s for like a physics around the 1900s Albert deuces the formula E=mc squared. In April Albert also hands in a physics work. In the middle of January Albert is awarded a doctorate by the University of Zurich and also in April he is promoted to be a second class technical expert at the patent office.…

  • The Importance Of Chemistry In Life

    Introduction Chemistry is one of the broadest scientific subjects that are primarily focused on the manner in which matter interacts with energy. However, chemistry tends to be more focused on the study of the properties of matter as well as the interaction between various types of matter. The interaction is often facilitated by the reactions that involve either electron loss or electron gain, as described by the American Chemical Society (2014). Unlike other sciences, such as physics, chemistry…

  • Personal Statement Of Purpose To Become An Astronomerist

    astronomer. Astronomers have to go through extensive schooling for ten years in order to achieve a PhD or Doctoral degree. Schooling requirements start in high school, and after high school they continue in four years of college and six years of graduate school. Even though a minimum of one year in science and two years of math are obligatory to be accepted into college, it is recommended to take classes up to pre-calculus and obtain a strong foundation in science and math. “ This gives students…

  • How Did Fritz Haber Contribute To Chemistry

    He ended up staying there for a year taking up a scientific career, working with Ludwig Knorr (Britannica encyclopedia 601). James 2 Haber had a difficult time deciding whether to focus on physics or chemistry, until he was offered a chemistry assistantship at Karlsruhe, Germany (located across the Rhine River from France), by Hans Bunte, the professor of physical chemistry. While in Karlsruhe, Haber was introduced to petroleum by Carl Engler and combustion chemistry by Bunte. Haber’s work…

  • How Did Niels Henrick David Bohr's Planetary Model

    1885. In 1911 he received his Ph.D. from Copenhagen University. Later on he moved to England to study under J.J. Thomson in Cambridge and under Ernest Rutherford in Manchester. In 1913 he published his model of the atom, which was based on Rutherford’s planetary model. After his publication of his model he received worldwide fame. Unfortunately, Bohr’s model worked only for hydrogen atoms. Which made the final atomic model yet to be developed. In 1922 he received the Nobel Prize for physics in…

  • 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…

  • Similarities Between Kuhn And Descartes 'Structure Of Scientific Revolution'

    Reflection prompt #3 Tareque Mehdi EDUC 800 Ways of Knowing Imagine a conversation between Kuhn and Descartes: what would Kuhn say to Descartes about his Discourse? Many have argued that Descartes created a scientific revolution. Does it meet Kuhn’s attributes? Why or why not? Additionally, note what specifically about Kuhn’s perspective helps you understand how we come to know? If I imagine a conversation between Kuhn and Descartes, upon closely looking at their publications, I believe…

  • 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…
