  • Albert Einstein's Theory Of General Relativity

    Albert Einstein introduced his theory of General Relativity in 1915 (New Site). This theory includes a field equation for gravity, which consists of three terms: two tensors that represent space-time and the energy-momentum tensor. The energy momentum tensor represents the matter and energy in the universe which bends space-time to produce gravity (lecture 1). His equation is seen in Figure 1. Figure 1 On the right side of the equation is the matter and energy tensor and, on the left, are the two space-time terms (lecture 1). Despite the incredible paradigm shift this equation and the rest of General Relativity had, it also had a profound implication that tremendously bothered Einstein (New Site). Einstein’s field equation implies that…

  • Cesar Chavez Movement Research Paper

    alongside Cesar Chavez and hundreds of other protesters outside the Delano, California vineyards. The rays of the burning sun, searing their skin were the least of their concerns. Protesters were there to proclaim justice for all the farm workers that had been denied the right for proper working conditions in the fields. Bertha Silva came from a Mexican decedent, her parents moved to Delano, California when she was the age of 11. Soon after arriving, the family started working in the grape…

  • Representation In STEM

    times fewer women, especially minorities, have been involved in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). This information serves as a chilling contradiction to the late 1960s when technological jobs such as computer programming was deemed as something a savvy young woman could do even comparing computer planning to “planning a dinner”. This paper will analyze why there has been a decrease in the amount of women in the fields of STEM, ways to increase the percentage…

  • Braden River Soccer Field: A Short Story

    Walking out onto the green grass of the Braden River Soccer Fields, I have butterflies in my stomach. It was a hot, beautiful day with the sun beating down and not a cloud in the sky. I look at the small, red clubhouse building and see four of my teammates sitting down against the wall of it. I hardly knew anyone on my team, except a boy named Noah with blond, curly hair and pale skin. As my team showed up one by one, nobody said anything to each other. Before the game started, our coach, Coach…

  • Occupational Inequalities In Women

    on table 11.1, very few women worked in what were considered “men’s fields.” These fields consisted of civil engineers, auto mobile and mechanical, and dentistry field. In contrast, women tended to work as registered nurses, kindergarten and preschool teachers. Over the past 30 years, more women have migrated into what were once considered men’s jobs, but for most fields, these numbers are still statistically low. According to the U.S.…

  • Erwin Schrodinger: The Physics Of The Universe

    Erwin Schrödinger, an Austrian born chemist, gained his famed for his contributions to quantum mechanics. Some of his contributions to chemistry and quantum mechanics were his books describing his techniques and basic info behind his work, his paradox, Schrodinger’s cat, which created a lot of new discoveries in chemistry, and his equation that changed how many people viewed the atom and its electrons. At at young age, Schrodinger was strongly influenced by the philosophy of Austrian philosopher…

  • Cobalt Radiation Lab Report

    Objective The purpose of the experiment is to synthesize multiple cobalt complexes with various ligands and explain the ligand field transitions of these complexes using Ultraviolet-Visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy. The experiment provides insight into specific colors of certain molecular species and respective bonding information. Introduction Transition elements are defined by the IUPAC as atoms that have an incomplete d-subshell, most commonly referring to the d-block.1 When transition metals…

  • Essay On Backwards Causation

    The theory of backwards causation, or retro-causation, has been given much attention in the past twenty years. It has made waves in metaphysics, quantum physics, and even religion. In the case of religion, it pulls into question God’s divine foreknowledge, in other words omniscience. This is an attempt to reconcile the foreknowledge of God with the possibility of backwards causation. Thus if is it impossible to do so then the options present themselves as: God has no divine foreknowledge,…

  • De Broglie Hypothesis Lab Report

    The observed diffraction pattern matched the predictions of the de Broglie wavelength. De Broglie was awarded the 1929 Nobel Prize for the theory (this was the first time when he was awarded for a Ph.D. thesis) and Davisson/Germer together won it in 1937 for the experimental discovery of electron diffraction. All this proved the hypothesis to be…
