Why is Maxwell considered at Newton’s and Einstein’s level?
Why is Maxwell considered at Newton’s and Einstein’s level?. Do You Mrs or Mr own that kind of problem?, If do then please check the good soution right after this line:
When Einstein was asked, “Did you stand on the shoulders of Newton?”, he said “No, I stood on the shoulders of Maxwell.” Einstein always had the highest admiration for Maxwell.
One of the reasons that Maxwell did not get more public recognition is that he died relatively young of the same cancer that killed his mother at the same age, and so never became an “elder statesman” in physics.
Maxwell could likely have lived for another 30 years but for the cancer. As he was a brilliant experimenter as well as a theoretician, he or one of his students then could have been the one to discover the electromagnetic waves he predicted, that were later discovered by Hertz.
