Einstein s genius changed science s perception of gravity Oct , Gravity made the universe go round Gravity s secrets succumbed to Einstein s general theory of relativity, unveiled in a series of papers submitted a How to Understand Einstein s Theory of Gravity Discover May , Einstein s general relativity may be complicated, but it s our best way of understanding the universe By Devin Powell May , AM A phenomenon known as an Einstein Ring created when light is bent by gravity around a large object. Gravity Equation Universe Today Feb , There is not one, not two, not even three gravity equations, but many The one most people know describes Newton s universal law of gravitation F Gmm r, where F is the force due to gravity General relativity General relativity, also known as the general theory of relativity, is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in and is the current description of gravitation in modern physics.General relativity generalizes special relativity and refines Newton s law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of Hole argument In general relativity, the hole argument is an apparent paradox that much troubled Albert Einstein while developing his famous field equations. Some philosophers of physics take the argument to raise a problem for manifold substantialism, a doctrine that the manifold of events in spacetime is a substance which exists independently of the metric field defined on it or the matter within it. General Relativity explained like you ve never seen before Of course, saying that gravity is the warping of spacetime is a whole lot easier than turning that insight into a quantitative theory Einstein labored for years to explain mathematically exactly how the distribution of mass and energy warps spacetime. Einstein s theory of general relativity Space Jun , General relativity is physicist Albert Einstein s understanding of how gravity affects the fabric of space time The theory, which Einstein published in , expanded the theory of special Einstein s Fridge How the Difference Between Hot and Cold Einstein s Fridge tells the incredible epic story of the scientists who, over two centuries, harnessed the power of heat and ice and formulated a theory essential to comprehending our universe Although thermodynamics has been studied for hundreds of years few nonscientists appreciate how its principles have shaped the modern world What Is Gravity NASA Space Place NASA Science for Kids Dec , Gravity in our universe Gravity is what holds the planets in orbit around the sun and what keeps the moon in orbit around Earth The gravitational pull of the moon pulls the seas towards it, causing the ocean tides Gravity creates stars and planets by pulling together the material from which they are made. Quantum Gravity Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy Dec , The difficulties in reconciling quantum theory and gravity into some form of quantum gravity come from the prima facie incompatibility of general relativity, Einstein s relativistic theory of gravitation, and quantum field theory, the framework for the description of the other three forces electromagnetism and the strong and weak nuclear

This book was fantastic for a detailed view into the history of Einstein s theories and the progression of natural sciences into what we know today as cosmology and particle physics In the chapters themselves he does not talk about dark energy, which is understandable because Dark Energy was not discovered confirmed until the 21st century However, I did like his mention of dark matter in the book If one reads further in the Afterword he confirms the Dark Matter exists and Omega equals 1 confirm [...]
The title does not quite match the contentIMO an unsatisfactory accounting of general relativity
Though I read this for a class, I pretty much enjoyed every page of it It s a bit out dated, as it lacks the relatively new discovery of the acceleration of the universe s expansion and dark energy However, it does cover a surprisingly large amount of physics.From the advent of modern physics with Newton to Einstein, it covers the wide scope that is gravity Zee goes into cosmological abstracts like cosmic strings and down to the extremely small, such as quarks and super string theory Gravity is [...]
I m never gonna finish this thing Science makes my head fall off.
