Back In Time Speed Of Light
488 wordsIt is believed that our universe is curved like a U shape (see figure 1 - 1). For a while, it was only believed that you could travel back in time. It was never thought that you could travel into the future. Stephen Hawking had a theory that there are loops or shortcuts in the universe that could warp you from one part of space to another. He called it a wormhole. Wormholes are also unstable. They can collapse at any time and pinch off into two separate singularities (see figure 1 - 3). A wormho...

1,069 wordsDo you think its possible to find aliens in your lifetime? The chances that an extraterrestrial civilization would actually come to the Earth are slim. However, if they did the best way to find extraterrestrial life is not by space exploration, but by electronic signals. Signals can carry words, numbers, and pictures cheaply and at the speed of light. The amount of time and energy required for the travel would be enormous. The amount of energy required to accelerate a spacecraft weighing several...

Speed Of Light Theory Of Relativity
1,257 wordsAlfred Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879. You might ask yourself, what would it be like to be born a genius? If you were anything like Albert Einstein you were a very quiet, secretive child who had trouble in school and against authority. And most of all, you would not be a child prodigy as some people might think. Some believed Albert Einstein was "backward" (Current Biography, 257) when he was young, because he could not speak fluently when he was nine. But even as young as f...

In the world today a paucity of these heroes is present. However, Albert Einstein can be considered a role model and hero. Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Germany where he developed his theories of relativity. In 1933 when Hitler came to power Einstein fled to the United States. At Princeton he continued his research on...

Another consequence of Einstein's quantum research in this area was interest of the scientific community in quantum mechanics, a science Einstein would dismiss as too in deterministic. From these discoveries, Einstein was to receive a Nobel Prize. Einstein regarded his second paper of 1905 as relatively unimportant. In it, he calculated a way of determining the size of molecules and found a value for Avogadro's number. By ana...

1,938 wordsThe Rise of Einsteinian Special Relativity In 1905, Einsteins Theory of Special Relativity was proposed. The reason that it is so special is because it was part of the more complex and extensive Theory of General Relativity, which was published in 1915. His theory reshaped the world of physics when it contradicted all previous laws of motion erected by Galileo and Newton. By mathematically manipulating these previous laws of motion, physicists in the nineteenth century were able to explain such ...

1,558 wordsBlack Holes Every day we look into the night sky, wondering and dreaming what lies beyond our galaxy. Within our galaxy alone, there are millions upon millions of stars. This may be why it interest us to learn about all that we cannot see. Humans have known the existence of stars since they have had eyes, and see them as white glowing specks in the sky. The mystery lies beyond the white glowing specks we see but, in the things we cannot see in the night sky such as black holes. Before I begin to...

1,594 wordsWhen astronomers gaze out to the heavens these days, they see planets, stars and other celestial bodies. They understand how they move in relation to one another and the space they are in. This is due to the works of Albert Einstein nearly a century ago. Before then they were limited to understanding the universe based on the predictions, observations and calculations of mainly Isaac Newton. They were the backbone of classical physics, defining the world using the simplest of calculations. Newto...

Electricity also can be transformed into other types of energy such as heat or light and is used to heat our homes, light our cities and towns and power the computers we are using. Electricity is the type of energy that is invisible. Its made of moving electrons that are so small and move so fast that we cannot see them. The elect...

1,124 wordsThe Properties of Light Applied to Fibre Optics One of the basic properties of light is that it travels in straight lines and can have it? s direction changed. This is the property which is applied to achieve the purpose of Fibre Optics which is to carry light from one place to another. The way this is done can be explained by the principle of refraction. This is the principle which governs the behaviour of light as it passes from one transparent substance to another. It states; if a ray of ligh...

1,099 wordsAlbert Einstein, a German-American physicist, gave so much to this country. Einstein was born in Ulm on March 14, 1879, and spent his youth in Munich, where his family owned a small shop that manufactured electric machinery. He died in Princeton, April 18, 1955. When repeated business failure led the family to leave Germany for Milan, Italy, Einstein, who was then 15 years old, withdrew from the schools of Munich. He stayed a year with his parents in Milan, then left to finish secondary school i...

363 wordsThe aim of this experiment is to measure the speed of light in an experiment available to do at school. The principle is quite simple. Let a ray of light strike a rotating mirror that reflects the light three meters away to a second mirror, so that the light is reflected back at the rotating mirror and back to the laser. The rotating mirror has during the time it took for the light to travel the six meters to the second mirror and back rotated some degrees and the light spot has moved from the o...

3,151 wordsI. Introduction 1. Theory of Black Holes Black holes are one of the least understood phenomenons in the galaxy yet the secrets contained within the black hole could revolutionize the field of physics. Black holes are formed when an enormously massive star, most likely a neutron star, collapses in on itself. This happens because when the star dies all the energy generated from the sun s fusion reaction that was formerly pushing outward suddenly stops. When the outward force stops, the sun has so ...
