5 Famous Physicist

  1. 1. 5 FAMOUS PHYSICIST - PRATEEK SAXENA
  2. 2. 5 Famous Physicist • Galileo Galilei (1564 - 1642) • Isaac Newton (1643 - 1727) • Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790) • Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955) • Sir Chandrasekhar Vanuatu Raman (1888 - 1970)
  3. 3. GALILEO GALILEI(1564-1642)
  4. 4. GALILEO GALILEI(1564-1642) • An Italian genius, Galileo created the telescope and observed the galaxy in so much depth, that his ideas were deemed irrational. He not only discovered the phases of Venus, the four satellites of Jupiter: Io, Europa, Callisto, and Ganymede, but also proved that the ocean tides were caused due to the gravitational pull of the moon and not due to the earth's rotation. Compass and thermometer were also his inventions. This stalwart, who had magnified the galaxy a thousand times for us, died after he had turned completely blind.
  5. 5. ISAAC NEWTON (1643-1727)
  6. 6. ISAAC NEWTON (1643-1727) • Newton's Laws of Motion and universal gravitation laid the foundation for most of the modern physics. He was not only a physicist but also a Mathematics wizard. With equal originality, he also immersed himself in chemistry and left a few manuscripts on the subject, which later served as a base for the future scientists to develop on.
  7. 7. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN (1706-1790)
  8. 8. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN (1706-1790) • He was an American physicist who discovered two electric charges, 'positive' and 'negative'. Franklin was a fantastic inventor who never patented any of his inventions. Even today, his famous invention of the lightning rod, protects many buildings and ships from getting damaged by lightning. He was a versatile personality, being an author, satirist, diplomat, statesman, politician and musician, all into one.
  9. 9. ELBERT EINSTEIN (1879-1955)
  10. 10. ELBERT EINSTEIN (1879-1955) • A stalwart, who needs no introduction, Einstein put forth one of the pillars of modern physics, 'General theory of Relativity'. E=mc2 has been dubbed as the 'world's famous equation', and it also earned him a Nobel prize in 1921. In his lifetime, he published nearly 300 scientific papers. His exceptional wisdom has made the word 'Einstein' synonymous with 'intelligence‘.
  11. 11. SRI. C.V. RAMAN (1888-1970)
  12. 12. SRI. C.V. RAMAN (1888-1970) • His research on scattering of light and establishing the Raman effect got him a Nobel prize in 1930. He was an Indian physicist, who helped India grow by his influential work. He was the founder and editor of 'The Indian Journal of Physics'. He also carried out many other investigations, and also approached the basic problems of crystal dynamics with a different mindset.
