Max Planck and Werner Heisenberg
Max Planck was a German scientist born in April of 1858. Planck has contributed to theoretical science, but his biggest is the discovery of quantum physics. For this, he won a Nobel Prize. He was a specialist in the field of physics. Albert Einstein and Max Planck formed the basic theories of physics in the 1900s. Planck was a descendent of a knowledgeable, intellectual family too.
Planck went to Berlin to study in 1877. His famous quote when responding to the statement “in this field, in this field, almost everything is already discovered, and all that remains is to fill a few holes” by replying “I do not wish to discover new things, but only to understand the known fundamentals of the field.” A few years later, Planck released his Habilitation Thesis to graduate from school. Planck started his remarkable studious career by becoming an unpaid lecturer of science in Munich, Germany. After graduating from school, Planck started his remarkable career by becoming an unpaid lecturer of science in Munich, Germany, in attempts of getting a job in education. No jobs were offered. Later, Planck focused more on heat theory. In 1885, Planck finally got a job as a professor. The University of Kiel accepted him as the Associate Professor of Theoretical physics. After years of work, he published the Treatise on Thermodynamics. In 1892, after years of work, Planck finally became a fulltime professor. Planck would then become more focused on the case of blackbody research. Planck’s first solution would be called the principle of elementary disorder.
After tinkering with the solution, he had derived the Planck Postulate. In quantized form, the equation would be E=hv, where H would be called Planck’s Constant. As a result of the discovery of Planck’s Constant, Max Planck was capable of “defining a new set of physical units”Wikipedia. Planck had showed lots of courage as his wife passed after...
