About Albert Einstein


His wealth is a result of the patents and publications on his numerous well-known theories. Einstein’s inquisitive approach towards science started after his father showed him a pocket compass. He wanted to know what’s causing the needle to move. At the age of sixteen, he took the Swiss federal polytechnic exam, where he failed to acquire the qualifying marks. However, he performed exceptionally well in Mathematics and Physics.

On the advice of the principal, he completed his secondary education from the Argau Cantonal School. At the age of 17, he got enrolled as a student in a four-year Mathematics and Physics diploma course from the ETH Zurich. In his quest for knowledge, he came out with many theories like the “theory of relativity”, and the “quantum theory”, using which, the concepts of “particle theory” and the movement of molecules was discovered.
