    theories about electromagnetism. One of the most popular ones is the Maxwell Equations. The Maxwell equations are equations explaining electromagnetism and how it works. These equations were formed by different equations and experiments. According to (Gale, 2001, WWW)Albert Einstein James Clerk Maxwell “”set the platform for physics and future scientists.” Maxwell’s theories were opposite from what other people thought. Maxwell´s theories also didn't have a lot of mistakes but there were quite

    Abstract: The purpose of this research paper is to demonstrate how much Wireless Technology has really improved, since the year James Clerk Maxwell developed and explained the theory of electromagnetic waves on 1865; And Heinrich Hertz put into practice Maxwell 's theory by experimenting with electromagnetic waves-measuring their speed and wavelength between the years 1885-1889; Until present days. As this type of technology grows, it is perceivable to what extent people have learned how to manipulate

    early pioneer in teaching methods and would not look out of place in schools and television today. However, chapter four comments about other lecturers' development of similar styles of teaching, or performing to entertain the audience, (Falconer,James, 2008). Therefore, one can only imagine that there was much competition and that Faraday was aware of that and would encourage him to find new ways to attract the audience, which in many ways is like a competition between television networks today

    ________________________________________________________________ What have been three technological changes to photography in the last 200 years? 1. Color Photography, known as the first durable color photograph taken by Thomas Sutton, but James Clerk Maxwell did the real work. James Clerk Maxwell was a mathematical physicist, he worked out everything to take this photograph of The Tartan Ribbon, Thomas simply pressed the shutter button. 2. The Polaroid, the first ‘real’ camera ever made, (meaning you didn’t need

    mathematician James Clerk Maxwell to contradict the second law of thermodynamics. For example, you have a box filled with a gas (a mixture of hot and cold molecules) at the same temperature. This means that the temperature can have an affect on an average speed of the molecules. Some of the molecules will move slower than average, and some will move faster than the average. Suppose that a divider is placed in the middle of the box separating the two sides into left and right compartment. Maxwell imagined

    Josiah willard gibbs spend his life studying thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. After gibbs’s discoveries albert einstein called him “The greatest mind in american history”. Mr gibbs lived from 1839 till 1903, and he was an american mathematical physicist whose work helped the development of physical chemistry as a science. Gibbs’ discoveries helped pave the way for einstein's later discoveries. One of the awards he received which he could not attend because he had died before then, was a

    increases linearly with the frequency of the light. (Chem Book 279) Einstein built on Max Planck’s idea of quantized energy packets called “quantum” and discussed that energy consists of discrete packets. However, since Einstein’s ideas contradicted James Clerk Maxwell’s widely accepted equations on electromagnetic behavior, he documented that the photoelectric effect depended on the wavelength and frequency of light as mentioned above in his observations. Einstein’s second paper on Brownian Motion is
