I am satisfied with what I have become; a student specializing in Physics with special interests in experimental Condensed Matter Physics. I grew up in a very small town. A town not fully developed; there were very few resources and not many quality schools to acquire a solid education. I had to pass an entrance exam to get into a good school for 8th grade at a time when most students in my town would drop out of school after 7th grade in order to search for work and support their families.
My parents could not complete their undergraduate studies because they had to work to support their families, but their emphasis on the importance of education, their dedication and massive effort

; (1910).The importance of Mme. Curie's work is reflected in the numerous awards bestowed on her. She received many honorary science, medicine and law degrees and honorary memberships of learned societies throughout the world. Together with her husband, she was awarded half of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903, for their study into the spontaneous radiation discovered by Becquerel, who was awarded the other half of the Prize. In 1911 she received a second Nobel Prize, this time in Chemistry, in recognition of her work in radioactivity. She also received, jointly with her husband, the Davy Medal of the Royal Society in 1903 and, in 1921, President Harding of the United States, on behalf of the women of America, presented her with one gram of radium in recognition of her service to science.

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the wonderful world of physics! It's pretty much the greatest thing ever. Physics is the study of everything.
Physicists want to understand how everything in the universe works, so there are many different branches of physics.
These topics may seem unrelated, but scientists believe that they are really all the same, and they hope to prove it in the
future. In this course, you will get a taste of most of these different topics. Students doing Higher Level (HL) and
Standard Level (SL) will get to study together, but the HL students will get to study a few extra topics, and will study a

theories that Newton proposed. The development of these theories founded what is now modern physics. These theories also gained Newton attention and credibility in the scientific community, which further helped spread his accomplishments.
The discovery of these laws, laid down a basic foundation for the physics of motion. Newton's three laws of gravity changed the way in which the world was perceived, because of their accuracy in describing many unexplained phenomenons.3 They explained what happens as a result of different variables, but most importantly, they explained why and how these actions happen. Like many of Isaac Newtons ideas and theories, the three laws of motion had a profound

Water and all forms of water travel have long fascinated man. With his fascination and the realization that humans are ill-suited for water travel that doesn't involve remaining on the surface, an appreciation for a fish's ability to move in three dimensions with relative ease was also devloped. Although we may not fully understand the physics involved how fish swim, it is obvious from the fascination and the breadth of reseach that it will remain a goal of the modern sicientist.
A fish's ability to propel itself efficiently through water is paramount to its likelihood to succeed. But before a fish need worry about any of the complications associated with moving through

The Alfvén model deals with the problem of cancellation by postulating that the regions of matter and anti-matter are larger than the presently observable universe, and are separated by double-layers in the plasma. Alfvén heavily stressed the importance of the cellular and filamentary nature of plasmas at any scale, from the laboratory to the galactic.Alfvén's model possesses a number of properties that were found appealing. First, it addresses the question of what happened before expansion. Alfvén estimated that the universe has always existed, and that the expansion we might now be seeing

Introduction Modern physics and philosophy both share their origin in ancient Greece, where there was little or no distinction made between them. At that point in time, both Physics and Philosophy were purely intellectual exercises of logic; conclusions drawn through physical investigation were seen to be less 'pure' than conclusions based on logic.Much of physics is now based on empirical data, and this data is required for any theory to be accepted by the scientific community. This expansion into empirical research can be seen as the sole reason physics has become more advanced (and therefore more powerful as a mental tool). Philosophy has never moved into specific empirical research in

And who indeed would have ever expected that the properties of light might affect whether or not we go on homicidal rampages? Perhaps Kurt Vonnegut did.

Catapulting though Time & Physics
Hurling an object towards one’s enemy may seem as old as time itself. People have hurled fists at each other, thrown spears, and launched giant rocks into enemy territory. The use of catapults, and other objects that hurl projectiles, also seem as old as human civilization itself. The effectiveness of the catapult in flinging objects over a great distance and causing destruction is due to a few basic physics principals that govern force, energy, motion, speed and mass to name a few. The design of the catapult denotes a change in modern warfare to the engineer behind weapons being just as important as the actual soldiers and people who use them

and observation, the general theory began to decline in importance, certainly compared to other emerging branches of physics, such as quantum, atomic and nuclear physics.Einstein himself turned most of his attention toward a quest, ultimately unfulfilled, for a unified field theory. By 1960, the general theory had been relegated to the backwaters of science. As famed general relativist Kip Thorne relates, it was during this period that a well-known Caltech astronomer advised him not to study relativity for his doctorate, because it had nothing to do with real physics and astronomy. (Thorne ignored the advice.)But during the next decade, everything changed. The 1960s are known as a decade of

The Physics of a Golf Ball
The first written reference of golf was in 1457. Golf balls have had extraordinary changes since that time; they've gone from leather pouches to dried gum to today's dimpled balls. These dimples help decrease the drag and increase the lift. Different forces are applied to the golf ball when struck by the club. Golf clubs have grooves to create backspin. And then there are different variables that affect how a golf ball will travel, these include: lie angle and the shaft length. A golfer must never forget about "the wind factor". And last but not least , a golfer must flat-out use his own judgment in the game of golf.

However, Einstein omitted gravity in his third paper. He put forth postulates explaining that the laws of physics are constant for any non-accelerating frame of reference. Einstein’s astounding proposal that the speed of light is fixed and not relative to the movement of the observer became a game changer for physicists. This paper became the basis for further calculations that would lead to the derivation of E=mc2 (Brown).

We Cannot Have A Successful Society If Zero Is Not Involved
The number zero may be thought to have very little importance, but it is actually of great value. Zero is the number that precedes 1 and follows –1 so it may represent the value of nothing. Zero is also important in holding a place value. It is a composite integer that is neither odd or even, though that fact can be debated. Zero is involved in many areas of study including modular arithmetic, computer sciences, and physics. There are also many properties that go along with zero, such as division by zero and the identities that go along with it. Zero, unlike many other numbers, has an interesting history.

He became known for his intelligence and his outspoken views, but the genius behind the theorem is what makes him so amazing. To better understand Albert Einstein, a person should examine his personal life, achievements, and his brain.
Albert Einstein’s personal life was not what some would expect to be the life of a genius. He was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany (“Einstein, Albert” 206). When Albert became old enough, he started going to the local school. He was not well liked by his teachers

If the reality we are attempting to measure is affected by us measuring it perhaps personal attributes affect have an affect on reality as well as knowledge.
