  • Isaac Newton's Second Law Of Motion

    Sir Isaac Newton was born on December 25th, 1642. As Newton grew up he was recognized as a very knowledgeable physicist, mathematician, author and astronomer. He excelled in both math and physics and has been developing theories since his early twenties. Isaac Newton attended a grammar school in Grantham near Lincolnshire, where as during this time Newton became very interested with chemicals. In 1664 Newton at that time was a student, he read up on work containing optics and light. He was…

  • John Dalton Research Paper

    “Matter, though divisible in an extreme degree, is nevertheless not infinitely divisible. That is, there must be some point beyond which we cannot go in the division of matter… I have chosen the word “atom” to signify these ultimate particles.” – John Dalton. John Dalton is a British chemist who was born in September 6, 1766 in Eaglesfield, England and died on July 26, 1844 in Manchester, England. At the age of 12, he started teaching at a Quaker school in Cumberland. Dalton worked as a farmhand…

  • The Theory Of The Cubical Atom: The Lewis Dot Structures

    Gilbert Lewis first introduced his theoretical dot structures in 1916. Today, these same dot structures are used to illustrate the chemical bonding nature of atoms. How did Lewis formulate these brilliantly simple representations of nature? The Lewis Dot Structures we know today actually derive their functionality from Lewis’ own model of the atom, the Theory of the Cubical Atom. This essay will explore the functionality of Lewis’ cubical atom and how this model led to the Lewis Dot Structures.…

  • Gold Foil Experiment Essay

    Asal Bahmani 12.20.16 Franey//Adams Chem P.6 Going back through history the experiments, discoveries, and works of past scientists such as Democritus, Dalton, Thomson, and Rutherford have afforded us the opportunity to draw from their ideas to formulate a modern view and accurate understanding of the atom. Thanks to the evolution of atomic models. In the beginning, Democritus viewed the atom as a tiny, solid, round sphere, that was unable to be cut. He created the first model of an atom, that…

  • What Are Albert Einstein's Laws Of Nature

    Albert Einstein designed his own laws of nature. He changed the way we use to see light, gravity, and time. Most scientists in our day in age agree with what Albert Einstein has declared, but some scientists seemed to not understand what he was saying. Albert Einstein gave scientists the ability to know that atoms and molecules exist through Brownian motion. Albert was one who experimented the photoelectric effect in which he established that light has both a wave and a particle. Light particles…

  • Alfred Wegener Theory

    Pangea! It was the supercontinent that existed about 300 million years ago. According to Alfred Wegener’s theory, long before us humans existed all of the continents used to be one large landmass. Who is Alfred Wegener you might ask? Alfred Wegener was a German polar researcher, geophysicist, and meteorologist born in Berlin on November 1, 1880. I chose to research about Alfred Wegener’s life and his struggles because we are currently focusing on the continental drift theory in science class. He…

  • Alice In Quantumland Summary

    Introduction: Quantum physics, also known as quantum mechanics, is the branch of physics that uses quantum theory to predict and describe the properties of a physical system. While chemistry is the science of composition, properties, structures, and reactions of matter; it is also known as the ‘central science’. While reading the book Alice in Quantumland by Robert Gilmore, one is able to link the two together, causing a curiosity to learn more. It is amazing to see how the two correlate and…

  • B Social Behavior: The Life Of Henry Cavendish

    Abstract Henry Cavendish was a man of extraordinary intelligence but had a crippling social anxiety condition that isolated him from most all human interaction. He was born into a family of English Dukes on both his father and mother’s side and later became one of the wealthiest people in England. He was well educated and attended the best English schools but did not hold any type of formal degree. After college, Henry began following his father’s scientific footsteps. Being a follower of…

  • Enrico Fermi: The Father Of The Atomic Bomb

    Being known as “The Father of the Atomic Bomb” is a great accomplishment. To have this association as well as being known as “The Pope,” “The Prophet,” and “The Admiral” to his associates, an individual must be intelligent and have a background that allowed them to grow and prosper in physics (Latil 113). The man with this honor is Enrico Fermi and without him, who knows what would have happened in World War II. Enrico Fermi had multiple experiences and obstacles in his life, but all of the…

  • Albert Einstein's Firewall Paradox

    General relativity is fundamentally incompatible with quantum mechanics- they have been at odds with each other since its discovery in 1915- relativity breaks down at the subatomic level and vice versa. A conjecture by two physicists may finally reconcile relativity with quantum mechanics and put an end to the chain of inconsistencies began by Hawking’s information paradox. Albert Einstein first discussed the concept of quantum entanglement in a 1935 paper co-written with his colleagues Boris…
