Albert Einstein

His Affect on Life Today

Einstein's Early Life

To the right is a picture of Albert Einstein working with one of many equations.


Albert Einstein was born on March 14'th, 1879 in Ulm, Germany. When Albert Einstein was only two years old, he was wanting to speak using sentences, which is sensational for a two-year-old. When Albert was in school, he was considered a slow learner. He was enrolled at a Catholic school in Munich, Germany, very well-known for their education. Albert Einstein was a very quiet and determined kid when he was a kid.

College Education

Most of Albert Einstein's greatest ideas and theories came during his time at college. Albert attended The University of Zurich, which is a very well known and historic university located in Switzerland. While attending The University of Zurich, he came up with a theory called the theory or relativity.

The Theory of Relativity

In 1905, Einstein theorized that while the speed of light is constant, other things that seem constant can not. The theory of relativity determined that the laws of physics are the same for all non-accelerating observers. Einstein's ideas had implications for science and how people viewed the world.

Einstein's Famous Formula: E=MC2

This formula shows that the increased mass of a body comes from the energy of motion of the body, kinetic energy, divided by the speed of light squared. This formula was a big part of Einstein's explanation of the theory of relativity. This formula expresses that mass and energy are the same physical entity, meaning they can be changed into each other.

Albert Einstein Biography

Albert Einstein's Death

On April 17'th, 1955 one of the greatest philosophers passed away. His cause of death was an aneurysm, which is when an artery vessel bursts and causes a blood clot in your body. The interesting part about Einstein's death was that he was offered a surgery that would solve his health problems, but yet he refused to have the surgery done on him. To this day, there is no clear answer to why he wouldn't want the surgery done.

My Reaction

During this project, I really enjoyed looking into how Albert Einstein thought and what he accomplished. I thought it was really interesting when he denied the surgery that could have saved his life. Also, being able to research more about the theory of relativity was very interesting. Albert Einstein had a different way of seeing things in life, and it was very intriguing seeing how he explained his theories and formulas.
