Albert Einstein, Theoretical Physicist, famous for the Theory of Relativity
It’s not easy to write about someone whose life and works have been written numerous times over.
Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955), was a German-born physicist who discovered the theory of general relativity, that affected a revolution in physics. For this achievement, Einstein is often regarded as the father of modern physics. He received the 1921Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect”. Earlier in his career, he thought that the Newtonian mechanics was no longer sufficient to hold on the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. His scientific pursuits led to the development of his special theory of relativity.
Einstein also investigated the thermal properties of light that laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. Around 1917, Albert Einstein applied the general theory of relativity to model the structure of the universe.
