Einstein theories

  • Einstein was best known for his theory of relativity . E=MC^2 , The formula was published 1905, relates energy of particles to its mass. The formula  states that particles energy is equal to its mass times its speed of light (3*10^8m/s)squared .The  theory gives the idea that energy can be converted from mass to energy and energy to mass. Relativity  theory revolutionized scientific thought with new conceptions of time ,mass, space ,motion and gravitation
  • The famous  equation e=mc^2 (energy equals mass times velocity of light squared ),became the new foundation stone in development of nuclear energy.
