Albert Einstein

BiographyHe was a physicist of German origin, very known by the theory of the relativity. He was born in 14 of March, 1879. and he dead in 18 of April, 1955.

Theory of relativityThe theory of special relativity, published in 1905, deals with the physics of motion of bodies in the absence of gravitational forces, in which Maxwell's equations of electromagnetism with a reformulation of the laws of motion were made compatible.

InterestingsFactsHe wrote his first scientific work which was named "The Investigation of the State of Aether in Magnetic Fields" in 1894. His next major contribution was in 1901 when he published a prestigious paper explaining the capillary forces of a straw.1905 is popularly called the "Wonder year" of Einstein. In addition to completing his Tel. D at the University of Zurich, for his thesis "A New Determination of Molecular Dimensions", he published four articles that are reputable and even today.The first was the law of the photoelectric effect of light for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1921. The second significant work was the Brownian motion, also called the particle theory which describes the possible movement of particles in random motion, either suspended in a liquid or a gas. This concept is still used in mathematical models to explain real-world applications like the fluctuation in the stock market. The third work was important to explain the theory of relativity and the fourth and most famous work to date is to explain the mass-energy equivalence equation: E = mcIn 1910, Einstein explained why the sky is blue through his works on the effect of light scattered by the molecules in the atmosphere. Furthermore, in 1912, along with his friend Marcel Grossmann mathematician, Einstein began a new phase of research called gravitational and published the theory of relativity in 1915.
