  • How Did Albert Einstein Influence Astronomy

    mathematics and physics. He got his PHD in 1905. He also created the theory of relativity. A lot of people thought that his theory was wrong but gamma rays prove that he was right. In 1921 he won the nobel prize in physics, for his work on the photoelectric effect. he thought that light consisted of particles called protons. The speed of of…

  • Plastic Water Bottles Research Paper

    Goodbye Plastic Water Bottles In the United States, Americans use 50 billion plastic bottles a year. To put that in perspective, Americans consume about 1500 plastic water bottles per second. That is way too much to be using just to use something to drink out of. The United States has some of the safest drinking water in the world, so why do we need to have bottled water that claims to be “purified” or from some springs? The answer is we don’t. In Austin, Texas we have already banned…

  • Photovoltaic Cell Essay

    Photovoltaic cells produce direct current flow of electricity that is proportional to the amount of solar radiation hitting the cell. This is possible through the photoelectric effect, where light penetrates a surface and emits electrons. A standard silicon based photovoltaic cell will have a thin, negatively charged phosphorus-doped silicon wafer on top of a positively charged thicker boron-doped silicon layer. Excess electrons…

  • What Is Magnetic Resonance Imaging?

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical technology that uses magnetic fields to interact with protons in the human body, producing an image that allows doctors to diagnose disease and/or injuries (DiGiuseppe, Haberer, Salciccioli, Sanader, & Vavitsas, 2012). The idea of MRI technology had come from Raymond Damadian who was a medical professor and had founded the company that manufactured MRI scanners (Bergman PH. D, 2015). In the beginning, Damadian had been using Nuclear Magnetic…

  • The Importance Of Mathematical Predictionss For Hydrogen

    – equation (2 gives info on location of electron in terms of probability density - wave functions are called orbitals – [pic], where E is energy, e2 is electric potential, r is orbital radius and h is Planck’s constant 1925 Wolfgang Pauli – each orbital has only 2 electrons is now explained due to direction of spin of electrons. Spinning electrons create magnetic field. Only 2 electrons of opposite spin in an orbital referred to as Pauli exclusion principle Hund’s rule – half fill…

  • How Did Reb Saunders Influence Albert Einstein

    March 14, 1879, a baby boy has been born in the small town of Ulm Germany. After frequently moving around as a child, he ended up going to college and barely passing, in Switzerland. His teachers wouldn’t recommend him for any jobs, unaware that he would become one of the greatest scientists in history. His name is Albert Einstein. As Mr. David Malter, a character from Chaim Potok’s novel The Chosen, explains to his son, Reuven, while talking about Reb Saunders “Reb Saunders is a great man,…

  • Pros And Cons Of Renewable Awakening

    many years, but are they safe and lasting? Renewable energy, on the other hand, has been around for centuries. From the water wheels and mills of the Middle Ages to the photoelectric effect in solar panels of the early 1900’s, renewable energy is constantly being renovated and improved upon. Due to fossil fuels’ negative effects on the environment and lack of supply, renewable energy should be used in substitute. When fossil fuels are burned, greenhouse gases are released into the…

  • John Logie Baird: Early Life

    Initial development TV - The enchanted time transient box that transmits pictures and sound, affected some way or another into our lives after it was produced 80 years back. It is a standout amongst the most critical innovations of the twentieth century, changing and molding the brains of individuals amazingly. The early advancement of TV can be followed back to the revelation of the photoconductivity of the component selenium by Willoughby Smith in 1873, the creation of a checking plate by Paul…

  • Advantages Of Hybridization Of Wind And Wind Energy

    Chapter 5 Hybridization of Wind With Solar Using Cuk and Sepic Converters This chapter presents a hybrid model of solar and wind energy. This gives the hybridization of wind with solar using the CUK and SEPIC converters. In this model the solar PV panel source is connected to the CUK converter and correspondingly the wind turbine source is given to the SEPIC converter. Solar energy and wind energy are the two renewable energy sources most common in use. Hybridizing solar and wind power sources…
