I challenge you to name at least one area of physics that the work of Einstein did not somehow affect. If you take this challenge, you, like your pathetic parents, are destined for failure.

well he didn't believe in quantum theory so i can't see how his ideas would be able to influence this field *runs and hides*
Hydrodynamics and fluid mechanics (its subset) both incorporate Fick's Law... a very basic mathematical principle. Could we really use Fick's Law in physics without the Einstein Relationship?Originally posted by bogdan
It could be hydrodynamics...fluid mechanics...probably...
But these examples are quite rare...
Why don't talk about phlogiston on a board where people still believe in ether, impetus, and cold fusion?Originally posted by Mr. Robin Parsons
Phlogiston.

Except for the fact that he got his Nobel prize for his explanation of the photoelectric effect, which became one of the foundations of QM.Originally posted by steppenwolf

what did einstein do in thermodynamics?

Well...Einstein did not work on the GUT...at least not for weak and strong interactions...
Before entropy gets in there with the knife, see his 1905 paper on the Brownian motion and Avogadro's constant.Originally posted by maximus
what did einstein do in thermodynamics?
Sure he did. First, he postulated the existence of the photon, which is on the list of "subatomic particles". Second, the Standard Model is a union of the electroweak theory and QCD, two relativistic quantum field theories. We all know the Standard Model won't last, but the candidates to take it over (namely String Theory and Loop Quantum Gravity) are also relativistic.Originally posted by einsteinian77
He never contributed to subatomic particle theory
but he predicted it.Originally posted by einsteinian77
He never contributed to the expanding universe that was observed by hubble too.
