Kids - Albert Einstein Biography Albert Einstein was born as the first child of the Jewish couple Hermann and Pauline Einstein, nee Koch, in Ulm on March 14, 1879. When Albert’s grandmother saw him for the first time she is said to have cried continuously: "Much too thick! Much too thick!" But despite all fear the development of young Albert was a normal one. In November 1881 Albert’s sister Maria – called Maja – was born. A short time later the Einstein family went to Munich where Albert first attended elementary school and subsequently Luitpold grammar school. He moved to Bern and was given work at the Patent Office. Einstein’s famous formula: In this mathematical equation, E stands for energy, m for mass and c for the speed of the light in a vacuum (ca. 300,000 km/s). In 1903 he married his college mate Mileva Maric. After Einstein had separated from his wife Mileva he married his cousin Elsa Löwenthal in 1919. Einstein spent the last years of his life reclusively in Princeton.

Food Chains, Trophic Levels and Energy Flow in an Ecosystem Video - Lesson and Example Food Chains The Sonoran Desert in the Southwestern United States may seem like a desolate place, but looks can be deceiving, because a wide array of wildlife can be found in this very dry environment. You might wonder how animals can make a living in the desert - after all, what is there for them to eat? Just like in every other ecosystem, all animals must eat other organisms, or, at the very least, secretions of other organisms, to acquire energy. Since a food chain follows the sequence of organisms that feed on each other, it always starts with an organism that gets its energy from an abiotic source, which is usually light from the sun. In turn, the squirrel can be eaten by another consumer, the diamondback rattlesnake, and the rattlesnake can then be eaten by a roadrunner? The roadrunner itself can also be eaten by yet another predator: the Red-tailed hawk. Trophic Levels Energy Flow Through a Food Web Now, let's look at how much energy actually flows through the food web.
