Fast Objects Appear shorter In his Special Theory of Relativity, Einstein stated that an object moving very fast, relative to an observer, would appear shorter to that observer than it would if it were standing still (relative to the observer). A train roaring through a station at nearly the speed of light would appear shorter than the same train sitting in a station. ” Consequences Once Einstein determined that time appeared to be different from two different he key word to keep in mind here is “appear,” for Einstein wasn’t saying that the fast-moving 41 train was shorter, only that it appeared shorter to the person in the station.

She was “old,” three whole years older than Albert, and Pauline thought she was unattractive. Once, while visiting his family, Einstein referred to Mileva as his wife, even though they had not married. Albert wrote to Mileva about what happened next: Mama threw herself on the bed, buried her head in the pillow, and wept like a child. ” Pauline Einstein’s fear soon became a reality. In the spring of 1901, Mileva Marić got pregnant. Albert and Mileva decided that Mileva would return to her parents’ home in Novi Sad to have the baby.

Planck was just trying to explain what he was seeing in the laboratory. ” He wasn’t neces- sarily saying that light was a bunch of packets. In 1905, however, Einstein did say that. Einstein’s paper convinced few scientists, including Planck. Most clung tightly to the wave theory. But Einstein had suggested that his theory could be verified through experimentation. It wasn’t until 1916 that Robert Millikan, while trying to disprove it, conirmed Einstein’s theory about the photoelectric efect. ” The Photoelectric Efect instein’s work on the photoelectric out?
