An introduction to the life of albert einstein

The bitter ending of the Great War was still fresh and there was resentment brewing in the hearts of many Germans.

His first theoretical paper — on the capillary forces of a straw — was published in a respected journal that same year and by he was awarded his doctorate by the University of Zurich.

After finding a position as a clerk at the Swiss patent office in Bern, Einstein married Maric in ; they would have two more children, Hans Albert born and Eduard born From untilhe was professor of theoretical physics at the ETH Zurichwhere he taught analytical mechanics and thermodynamics.

However, it was not given for his most famous work, that of relativity, because it remained too controversial. One of his sons, Eduard, was diagnosed with schizophrenia. This led him to renounce his citizenship in and move to America as the Professor of Theoretical Physics at Princeton University.

This led to an all-out U. In he married Mileva and had 2 sons by her over the next few years. He would never again enter the country of his birth. He was guided by the thought that if the liquid in which the particles are suspended is made up of atoms, they should collide with the particles and set them into motion.

Born in a country that for decades would be a hot spot for war and human atrocities which were not thought of at this time, Einstein would be a player in much of it.

This theory found that gravity, as well as motion, can affect time and space. His decision to move to Berlin was also influenced by the prospect of living near his cousin Elsa, with whom he had developed a romantic affair.

Einstein tried to enter the Federal Institute of Technology FIT in Zurich, Switzerland, but his knowledge of subjects other than mathematics was not up to par, and he failed the entrance examination. Einstein later became fluent in English and German though he was a horrible speller in English — there is hope for all of us spelling challenged people out there.

But there must have been something to that man. After his first public lecture, he met the emperor and empress at the Imperial Palacewhere thousands came to watch.

Six months later he married Mileva Maric, a former classmate in Zurich. Inthat prediction was confirmed by Sir Arthur Eddington during the solar eclipse of 29 May In upon his divorce, he quickly married his cousin, Elsa Lowenthal.

In Einstein was appointed to a lifelong honorary visiting professorship at the University of Leiden in Holland. Inafter serving as a lecturer at the University of Bern, Einstein was called as an associate professor to the University of Zurich. But on the whole it is a well written article.

Albert Einstein: a short biography

Throughout the last years of his life, Einstein continued his quest for a unified field theory. The great realisation is how science links up with politics but one wonders if his participation in the development of the atomic bomb ever made him reflect back on his X-tian morals.

They are modest, intelligent, considerate and have a feel for art. The Story of Albert Einstein. He was greeted as if he were a head of state, rather than a physicist, which included a cannon salute upon arriving at the home of the British high commissioner, Sir Herbert Samuel.

In AprilEinstein discovered that the new German government had passed laws barring Jews from holding any official positions, including teaching at universities. Einstein also became known as not having a very good memory. During this period, Einstein tried to develop a unified field theory and to refute the accepted interpretation of quantum physicsboth unsuccessfully.

Byhis groundbreaking theories had transformed the basics of modern physics and he was awarded the Nobel Prize.
