Nikola Tesla: Physicist

Subject: Physics | Topics:

Nikola Tesla, Physicist was born on July 10, 1856 in Smiljan, Lika, Austo-Hungarian Empire, region of Croatia. Tesla studied at the Realschule, Karlstadt in 1873, the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, Austria and the University of Prague. He began his career as an electrical engineer with a telephone company in Budapest in 1881. He was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. Tesla was renowned for his achievements and showmanship, eventually earning him a reputation in popular culture as an archetypal “mad scientist”. In 1894, he was given honorary doctoral degrees by Columbia and Yale University and the Elliot Cresson  medal by the Franklin Institute.  In 1934, the city of Philadelphia awarded him the John Scott medal for his polyphase power system.

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.....
