BC: The End!

FC: Einstein's Big Idea

1: This is story about Einstein and other scientists that came before him, that help him by going through long hours in the lab on hard experiments work, that led toEinstein well-known equation E=mc2.

2: E is Energy

3: Before Einstein time, | A man named Michael Faraday was very in love with scienceHe is one of the first to come up with undiscovered theories as he worked alongside a head chemist, Sir Humphry Davy

4: vcvbcxvbv | Michael Faraday worked on a lot of experiments with electricity through batteries, wires, magnets, and lights to uncover more about objects and their energy.

5: While playing with an electric wire and compass, Faraday realized that electricity affected magnets and that electricity and magnetism were not two separate parallels in the world, but rather they were two forces that could come together and created energy.

6: He also learned that electricity did not only travel in straight lines but in all directions which he called "invisible line"

7: Although he didn't realize at the time, Faraday created the electric motor. He had proven that many forces had things in common. His world of invisiible forces led to a whole new deep understanding of energy.

8: M is Mass

9: Antoine Lavoisier: established the principle of conversation of mass through many of his experiments.

10: His wife, Marie-Ann Pierette Paulze, contributed a lot to his works. She helped him discover one of the important parts of the later E=mc2 equation, m for mass.

11: C is for Celeritas

12: Einstein was very captivated by light. Light become a major part of his equation.

13: Michael Faraday played a big part in Einstein equation...He try to get many people to believe light was an electromagnetic wave but he had a hard time proving it because he was not great at math.

14: James Clark Maxwell was good at math and could prove that light was an electromagnetic wave and he did. He helped prove Faraday was right and also brought speed of light into Einstein equation.

15: Einstein took a great deal of time with studying Maxwell's work, He begin to realize that light was not like any other wave because it combine with many forces.

16: 2 is for squared

17: Emilie du Chatelet: studied the works of many scientist

18: She later discovered that energy of an object is a function of square of its speed. It was the last part of the equation E=mc2

19: Einstein had taken light's speed as a fact. He understood that if something was to approach light it speed of time slowed down.

20: After his findings he published four papers about how light forced energy and mass together to created fixed speed. Then he published another paper which was is 5th paper.

21: . In the 5th paper it concluded that each, Mass and Energy could be converted into each other. That is when he finished his equation E=mc2.

22: E=mc2 showed us how each and every piece of matter is stored into energy.

23: Einstein big discovery was not as successful the first time around it took time and he was later appointed to prestigious positions in physics.

24: Inspired by her teacher, physicist Ludwig Boltzmann, Lisa Meitner studied physics and became the second woman to obtain a doctoral degree in physics at the University of Vienna in 1905 ( | After E=mc2

25: During the first years she worked together with chemist Otto Hahn and discovered with him several new isotopes.

26: She was forced to flee Nazi Germany because of her Jewish ancestry. Soon after leaving Berlin, she received some reports from Hahn about the latest experimental data. | With her nephew, physicist Otto Robert Frisch, Meitner was the first to understand that uranium nuclei could be split when bombarded by neutrons. Meitner and Frisch calculated how much energy would be released each time a uranium nucleus underwent fission, a dramatic example of E = mc2 at work. | (

27: Theory of Relativity | This does not have a major impact on a person's day-to-day life since we travel at speeds much slower than light speed. For objects travelling near light speed, however, the theory of relativity states that objects will move slower and shorten in length from the point of view of an observer on Earth. | (

28: Atomic Bomb | The physicist Albert Einstein did not directly participate in the invention of the atomic bomb. But bombs were not what Einstein had in mind when he published this equation. | They will tell you that a nuclear explosion is "caused by the transformation of matter and energy" according to Einstein's formula, and that the gigantic conversion factor c2 is responsible for the immense power of such weapons.
