Sir.Isaac Newton Vs. Albert Einstein ?? who is the best in Physics and Math ??  ::) ???

so, PLz comment on it .. cos,.........
 Einstein showed this creativity using his Relativity!!!
 Newton proved his action with big reaction !!

Who is the best in Physics ?? and math ?? ..

and what if they both play chess ?? and who would win this awesome mind game ? and other mind games ... Plz comment on this ?? !!  ::)

I don't think there's any doubt that Newton was the better mathematician. In physics, I think Newton may still have the edge; but it's a close run thing.

Einstein was more of the Mind Game type thinker. I don't know about Chess. Einstein visualized himself traveling along with a photon and watching how it moved through space.

Chess is about more than just intelligence. It's like asking which of them would play the bassoon better.

I think that Newton was more of a trumpet man. Einstein was wicked with the spoons though.

Newton was certainly good at blowing his own trumpet. Einstein's prowess with the spoons was legendary.

Both of these people changed our view of physics in a radical way; they both introduced paradigm shifts in our view of how the universe worked.  I think I'd have to go with Newton too though.  Although Albert's achievements were as significant as Sir Isaac's, in his time, much of Einstein's achievement was in correctly interpreting a lot of stuff that had already been discovered, but not understood.  Newton, on the other hand, did as much discovery as interpretation.

Both were great thinkers.
Both built on others.

Einstein seemed cooler though:)
Newton was at times rather, ah, arrogant?
But he was so far past the others it seems at that place and age.
So maybe he's excused?

But Einstein had a very underhanded humor:)

The ordinary telegraph is like a very long cat.

You pull the tail in New York, and it meows in Los Angeles.
The wireless is the same, only without the cat.

I thought Einstein played the cello. Playing music helps you unwind and unwinding the mind is essential for their kind of thinking. Newton was nothing until he was forced to take a break in his studies due to the plague. He went off to the countryside, chilled and started to think clearly about gravity.
Who is the best well I'm fonder of Einstein as his thinking was truly bizarre. He asked the right questions which is sometimes more important than finding the right answers.

I agree, not just asking the right question but unraveling persistence that he had.

I heard that one of Einstein's theories disprove one of Newton's theory how true is this?
Einstein's theory if remember well is about the space pushing us to the earth, not the earth pulling us.  ??? ??? :D :D ;D ;D

Einstein showed that Newton's law of gravity was incomplete. However, Newton was close enough that it is his laws that we use for sending spacecraft to the moon and even to the far reaches of the solar system.

Newton's laws suffice to explain phenomena such as the orbits of planets, the trajectory of bullets, how fast objects will fall to Earth etc. General Relativity goes beyond that and explains gravity in terms of curvature of spacetime. Newton never thought of a connection between space & time.

yeah it's about gravity !!...... and don't consider modern knowledge of einstein cos .. during newtons times there was very less Knowledge ?? >>??
