## Chien-Shiung Wu: Physicist

Subject: Physics | Topics:

Chien-Shiung Wu, Physicist was born May 29, 1912, Liuhe, Jiangsu province, China. In 1929 Wu was admitted to the National Central University in Nanjing and graduated in 1936 and then traveled to the United States to pursue graduate studies in physics at the University of California at Berkeley, studying under Ernest O. Lawrence. After receiving a Ph.D. in 1940, she taught at Smith College and at Princeton University. She made significant contributions in the field of nuclear physics. Her expertise in experimental physics evoked comparisons to Marie Curie. Her nicknames include “the First Lady of Physics”, “the Chinese Madame Curie”, and the “Queen of Nuclear Research”.

### 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 .....
