Albert Einstein. Who doesn’t know his name! Famous physicist, he changed our views on life, the way we see everything around us. He got the Noble Prize for physics and was called the person of the century by Times.
For sure you have heard about him and know all these as well as his merry face showing you a tongue… But do you know the Theory of Relativity?.. You sure?.. If you are interested, this book is for you.
In 1900 Max Planck introduced a quantum constant into his mathematical expression for the energy distribution of blackbody radiation. This book is a revolution in 20th century physics. The first fifty pages examine heat radiation from the perspective of classical optics, including topics like radiation at thermodynamic equilibrium, Kirchhoff's law, and blackbody radiation. The next fifty pages, deductions from electrodynamics and thermodynamics, were substantially more mathematical. Planck discussed the Stefan-Boltzmann law of radiation and the Wien displacement law in detail as well as spectral distribution of energy radiation. Section III presents a general procedure for calculating entropy and introduces his quantum hypothesis. This book is a great help for students studying physics, for teachers and for anyone interested in this science.

Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington, a British astrophysicist of the early 20th century, was the first to accomplish the experimental testing of one of the effect, forecasted by Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity. The author aimed to give an account of this theory without introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics or philosophy. He did not set forth this quite determined theory, but offers unprejudiced discussion of the possible objections and points out its weak spots. The book is aimed for a wide readership, though it can be of interest either for specialists – mathematicians, physicists and science historians.

By his theory of relativity, Albert Einstein has provoked a revolution of thought in physical science. The aim of this book is to give an account of Einstein's work without introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics, or philosophy.
We took then a long glass-tube, which, by a dexterous hand and the help of a lamp, was in such a manner crooked at the bottom, that the part turned up was almost parallel to the rest of the tube, and the orifice of this shorter leg of the siphon (if I may so call the whole instrument) being hermetically sealed, the length of it was divided into inches (each of which was subdivided into eight parts) by a streight list of paper, which containing those divisions, was carefully pasted all along it.
