  4. 4. 1884• Einstein saw a wonder whenhe was four or five yearsold: a magnetic compass.• The needles northwardswing, guided by aninvisible force, impressedhim.• The compass convinced himthat there had to be"something behind things,something deeply hidden."www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  5. 5. Albert - as a Student• Einstein knew, from thenon, that he wanted toteach math and Science ata University someday.• The problem was, hewasn’t a very good test-taker and could not get ajob at a Universitybecause of it.• Rumor has it that he hadeven failed a Math test,but some people questionthat because of the waygrades were assignedback then.www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  6. 6. 1905• Albert Einsteindevelops his SpecialTheory of Relativity.• He did this whileworking as a PatentClerk in Germany.• He wasn’t really evena scientist at the time.www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  7. 7. Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity• Relative to who iswatching, spaceand time aretransformed nearthe speed of light:distances appear tostretch; and clockstick more slowlywww.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  8. 8. Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity• Einstein’s theory meantthat Newton’s Lawsneeded to be modified.• Space and time are notabsolute - and theuniverse we live in is notactually the one Newton"discovered.www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  9. 9. Einstein in 1905• Einstein uses the ideathat light exists as tinypackets, or particles, thatwe now call photons.•• His work anchors themost shocking idea intwentieth centuryscience: we live in auniverse built out of tinybits of energy and matter.www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  10. 10. Einstein in 1905• Next, in April and May, Einsteinpublishes two papers.• In one he invents a new method ofcounting and determining the size of theatoms or molecules in a given space.• In the other he explains the phenomenonof Brownian motion.• The net result is a proof that atomsactually exist - still an issue at that time.www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  11. 11. Einstein in 1905• And then, in June,Einstein completesspecial relativity - whichadds a twist to the story:special relativity seeslight as particles and acontinuous field ofwaves.www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  12. 12. Einstein IN 1905• And of course, Einstein isntfinished. Later in 1905 comesthe most famous relationshipin physics: e=mc2.• The energy content of a bodyis equal to the mass of thebody times the speed of lightsquared.• At first, even Einstein does notunderstand the fullimplications of his formula. 2mce =www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  13. 13. • In 1907, Einsteinbegins to apply thelaws of gravity to hisSpecial Theory ofRelativity.• In 1911, he finally getsa job as a Professor ofPhysics at theGerman University.Einstein IN 1907www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for
  14. 14. 1910-1913• In 1910, Einsteinaddressed a basicquestion: "Why is the skyblue?"
