Albert Einstein


     Albert Einstein was born March 14, 1879 in Germany. His family owned a small
business that manufactured electric machinery. The business failed and they left

Germany. Albert was fifteen years old and he dropped out of school. When Albert
was five when he received his first compass and he began to investigate the
world. Little did he know that that compass would make him famous. By the age of
ten he becomes so fascinated by the world of science he self-educates himself to
learn as much as possible. Albert then went to a secondary school in

Switzerland. Albert felt that the academics and education were not satisfying
enough so he started cutting his classes and used all his free time to learn
about physics. He had learned so much that his career had already taken off
without him even realizing it yet. He became a substitute teacher and an actor
until 1902 when he secured a position as an examiner in a Swiss patent office.

Not long after he married Mileva Maric and had two sons. 1905 was the biggest
year for Einstein. It is called his "Miracle Year". He published a
paper on the Brownian Motion and the seminal papers on his theory of relativity.

He received his doctrine from the University of Zurich for a theoretical
dissertation of molecules. He published three very important papers to twentieth
century physics. The first paper on Brownian motion made significant predictions
on the motion of particles that are randomly distributed in a fluid, which were
later proved by an experiment The second paper on Photoelectric effect presented
a hypothesis on the nature of light. He proposed that under certain
circumstances light could be considered a particles. He also hypothesized that
the energy carried by a photon is depositional to the frequency of radiation.

The formula E= HU proves this. Virtually no one accepted this theory but thought
differently when Robert Andrews Millikan proved it. The third paper was on
electrodynamics of moving bodies. It became known as the theory of relativity.

It explains how matter and radiation interact with one another. With these well
thought out papers Albert Einstein had solved the unanswered problems of the
world. He wanted to learn more and began to try and answer the questions of the
universe. In 1939 Einstein connected with other scientists and wrote a letter to
the president, Franklin D. Roosevelt pointing out the possibility of making an
atomic bomb. Albert signed the letter and the sent it off. That is when the
first atomic bomb was ever made. Albert Einstein died 1n 1955 but during his
lifetime he filled so many blanks about our universe. Albert Einstein had a huge
positive impact on history. He changed the confused minds of people and answered
their questions. He dedicated his life to science and because of him our world
has started to come together. Without him scientists would still be trying to
figure out the speed of light, relativity, elements mass.... Etc. He educated
the world and encouraged more people to learn about the natures of earth. The
biggest thing Albert Einstein did was he discovered the connection between
energy and mass through the famous equation of E= MC2. Einstein's famous speech
about this equation states that mass and energy are both different
manifestations of the same thing. This equation helped the world today and will
continue to do so. Einstein was a great scientist with a brilliant mind.

Everyone uses the knowledge that Einstein created even if we don't realize it.

We know the speed of light, which helps us, because we can have more of it and
it follows along with the speed of sound and relativity. Einstein has done many
good things and has helped our world tremendously. If he did not dedicate his
life to science then all our minds would be overflowing with the unanswered
questions of the world. Also because of him our technology has improved. We have
telephones and computers and televisions and all the electronic devices that are
here because of Albert Einstein's theories. It was partly because of him that
the atomic bomb was made and that has helped us with the wars. It has made us
come to realize that someone's theory can be more powerful than thousands of
people.
