Download E-books Warum ist E = mc²?: Einsteins berühmte Formel verständlich erklärt PDF

By Brian Cox, Jeff Forshaw

E = mc² ist die berühmteste Formel der Welt. Mit ihr brachte Einstein es auf den Punkt: Energie und Masse sind zwei Seiten derselben Medaille und die Lichtgeschwindigkeit c ist ihr Wechselkurs. Doch warum besteht dieses so einfache Verhältnis? Wie ist Albert Einstein zu diesem Schluss gekommen? Und welche Folgen für das Verständnis des Universums ergeben sich daraus? Brian Cox, Professor für Physik und in England durch seine Sendungen auf BBC sehr bekannt, hat sich zusammen mit seinem Kollegen Jeff Forshaw, Professor für theoretische Physik, die scheinbar einfache Einstein-Gleichung vorgenommen, um sie mit viel Energie ausführlich und verständlich zu erklären.

Download E-books Relativity: The Special and General Theory PDF

By Albert Einstein, Robert W. Lawson

World-renowned theoretical physicist Albert Einstein was once attracted to explaining the idea of Relativity to those that weren't specially well-versed in larger mathematic recommendations and theoretical physics. His technique to this was once to write down the ground-breaking paintings, "Relativity: The unique and normal Theory." within the paper, Einstein lays out contradictory rules: a precept of relativity and a precept of sunshine. Einstein proposed that, instead of discarding those rules for being conflicting, the foundations of time and house may be thoroughly made over and rethought in an effort to have the option to make those rules paintings in concord. instead of simply explaining his new concept, although, Einstein writes precisely why those principles have to be replaced via explaining the inaccuracies and inadequacies positioned inside all the present theories. Albert Einstein is healthier identified for his paintings at the thought of Relativity, gaining him the identify of "Father of recent Physics." He additionally acquired the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics, and his paintings is attributed as an thought for the quantum conception in the box of physics. After immigrating to the US following Adolf Hitler's upward push to energy in Germany, Einstein famously warned the govt that Hitler was once making plans on making a weapon in response to nuclear fission, and voiced his powerful opinion opposed to the production of the atom bomb. His countless numbers of papers and books are hugely unique and clever, making him probably the most well-known and revered highbrow minds of the 20 th century.

Download E-books Einstein and the Quantum: The Quest of the Valiant Swabian PDF

By A. Douglas Stone

Einstein and the Quantum unearths for the 1st time the entire value of Albert Einstein's contributions to quantum thought. Einstein famously rejected quantum mechanics, staring at that God doesn't play cube. yet, in reality, he proposal extra in regards to the nature of atoms, molecules, and the emission and absorption of light--the center of what we now be aware of as quantum theory--than he did approximately relativity.

A compelling combination of physics, biography, and the background of technological know-how, Einstein and the Quantum stocks the untold tale of the way Einstein--not Max Planck or Niels Bohr--was the motive force in the back of early quantum thought. It paints a brilliant portrait of the enduring physicist as he grappled with the it sounds as if contradictory nature of the atomic global, within which its invisible materials defy the types of classical physics, behaving at the same time as either particle and wave. And it demonstrates how Einstein's later paintings at the emission and absorption of sunshine, and on atomic gases, led on to Erwin Schrödinger's step forward to the fashionable kind of quantum mechanics. The e-book sheds mild on why Einstein eventually renounced his personal exceptional paintings on quantum conception, because of his deep trust in technology as anything target and eternal.

A booklet in contrast to the other, Einstein and the Quantum deals a totally new viewpoint at the medical achievements of the best mind of the 20th century, displaying how Einstein's contributions to the advance of quantum idea are extra major, possibly, than even his mythical paintings on relativity.
