E = mc2 Remember this equation? Of course, how can anyone forget this small but highly complicated equation that we learned in our school days and many scholars are studying till yet and who discovered this equation – Sir Albert Einstein. The Nobel prize winner who is responsible for many crucial discoveries won Nobel Prize in Physics, not for his most famous equation as it is just the most famous because of its application in war. He got his Nobel prize for proving that light comes in quantum particles, not just waves.
In the world of science, Einstein successfully marked his place forever. He is the one who demonstrated the link between mass and energy that led to the nuclear energy today. He is the one who observed the zigzag movement particles in suspension, helped to prove the existence of atoms and molecules. He is the one who explained that time and motion are relative to their observers. He is the one behind the Manhattan project. These all are his masterworks that made him immortal and memorable forever. But, there is a lot to know about him, so let’s have a look at the story:
