Here is a brief overview of some of the individuals who contributed to the revolution in physics and psychology. THE REVOLUTION IN PHYSICS & PSYCHOLOGYX-rays & irradiation On November 8, 1895, a German physicist named Wilhelm Roentgen accidentally detect x-rays. He fit(p) a vacuum tube with a wire attached to distributively end inside a black box, creating a discharge tube. He turned the lights off in the lab and turned on the galvanising current with a very high voltage across the tube. A short distance away he noticed a luminescence fluorescent light. Roentgen did not know the origin of these rays, therefore he called them x-rays. As he continued experimenting on these rays, he discovered that the rays could circularize books and wood. He concluded that these x-rays where from the discharge tube. When the discovery of x-rays was announced, stories and poems were published in magazines and newspapers. X-rays be used in many ways, much(prenominal) as in practic e of medicine ( CAT scans and MRIs), industry, science, etc. X-rays also have dangers and side effects such as cancer, skin burns, hair loss, and other serious conditions due to the exceedingly high voltage. In 1902, Ernest Rutherford discovered that at least two types of radiation existed. He labeled these types of radiation alpha particles and beta particles. Rutherford also discovered that radiation was caused by the disintegration of atoms and suggested that immense stores of energy were present deep down atoms. In 1911, he announced his version of the structure of the atom. He turn out that the atom has a very small, tightly packed, charged nucleus. With all of Rutherfords contributions and discoveries in science and radiation, he was president of the Royal Society, rece... ...ating force in homo life. This causes compensatory mechanisms that result in self-centered neurotic attitudes. Rank came up with a theory of neurosis, indicating all neurotic disturbances to the trauma of birth. The psychoanalytic movement unnatural work in psychology, sociology, anthropology, religious studies, history, and literary theory.
