The Miracle Year of 1905
>>>>>Over the last few months he worked on multiple papers that came to be known as the Annus Mirabilis Papers, “year of wonders”, and submitted it to the IUPAP (International Union of Pure and Applied Physics). The paper consisted of four different papers; Photoelectric effect, Brownian effect, Special theory of Relativity, and Matter and Energy equivalence. Einstein took theories from other scientists and explained why the results of their tests happen.
>>>>>The first paper, the Photoelectric effect, named “On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light”, which Einstein proposed energy quanta. The quanta energy theory was a strong proof of wave-particle duality; this states that physical systems can display both wave-like and particle-like properties.
>>>>>The second paper, the Brownian Motion, named “On the Motion Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid”. The theory explains that since atoms move at a fast enough speed that you can count atoms thru a microscope. Before scientists thought that atoms was just a concept, but the scientific world would debate whether atoms really exist until later in the century.
>>>>>The third paper, the Special Theory of Relativity, named “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies” better known as the Special Theory of Relativity. The special theory of relativity was based on experiments conducted by other physicists; The Trouton-Noble experiment, showed that the torque on a capacitor is independent on position and inertial reference frame and the Michelson-Morley experiment demonstrated the directional invariance of the two-way speed of light. Recent information from Einstein’s letters has suggested that Mileva had a role in the creation of the relativity paper.
>>>>>The fourth paper, Matter and Energy Equivalence, named “Does the Inertia of the Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?” This paper is famous for the equation E=mc2. You can read more about this paper under the E=mc2 tab.
