## Carl David Anderson: Physicist

Subject: Physics | Topics:

Carl David Anderson, Physicist was born Sept. 3, 1905, New York, U.S. He studied physics and engineering at Caltech (B.S., 1927); and received his Ph.D. in 1930. Having studied X-ray photoelectrons since 1927, he began research in 1930 on gamma rays and cosmic rays. He is best known for his discovery of the positron in 1932, an achievement for which he received the 1936 Nobel Prize in Physics, and of the muon in 1936. Anderson spent all of his academic and research career at Caltech. He was also elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1950.

### Assignment on fundamental sciences

Fundamental sciences is the study of material things was treated as a single aspect of human thought and called natural philosophy. But as knowledge increased it was found necessary to divide the study of nature into two main branches. They are  two main fundamental sciences are- A. Physical sci.....

### Assignment on Refraction of Light

Reflection of Light The bouncing off of light or any wave at the face or boundary between two medium is called refraction.The figure above illustrates the regular reflection of a light ray. MM` represents the surface of a plane mirror. AO is the incident ray i.e. the direction in which light fall.....

### Experiment Study of Wein Bridge Oscillator

Prime objective of this case study is to experiment on Wein Bridge Oscillator. The oscillator is a circuit where a balanced bridge is used because feedback network is Wien Bridge oscillator. The aim of this experiment is to check the operation of the Wien Bridge. To explain this experiment here .....

### What is Wave

Wave is a form of disturbance which travels onward due to repeated periodic motion of the medium particles. Energy is transferred during wave motion. Types of wave Mechanical wave: This type of wave motion requires material medium to propagate. For example ripples on water surface, vibration of a.....

### Experiment Study of Class-C Tuned Power Amplifier

Primary objective of this case study is to experiment on Class-C Tuned Power Amplifier. Here focus on an amplifier that has tuned collector load and active device transistor operating at Class- C mode and observe the output voltage and current relationship at different harmonics. To experiment .....
