## Sir William Lawrence Bragg: Physicist

Subject: Physics | Topics:

Sir William Lawrence Bragg, Physicist was born March 31, 1890, Adelaide, South Australia. Bragg went to the University of Adelaide at age 16 to study mathematics, chemistry and physics, graduating in 1908. Bragg entered Trinity College, Cambridge in the autumn of 1909 and received a major scholarship in mathematics, despite taking the exam while in bed with pneumonia. He was an X-ray crystallographer, discoverer (1912) of the Bragg law of X-ray diffraction, which is basic for the determination of crystal structure. He was joint winner (with his father, Sir William Bragg) of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915. He was knighted in 1941.

### 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 .....
