Pieter Zeeman Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Pieter Zeeman from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

The rotation of the polarization plane is extraordinarily small in all gases,
thus also in sodium vapour.
- Pieter Zeeman

Moreover, photography has made it possible to fix these
images and now provides us with a permanent record
of each observed spectrum,
which can be measured out at any time.
- Pieter Zeeman

On the basis of Lorentz's theory, if we limit ourselves
to a single spectral line,
it suffices to assume that each atom (or molecule)
contains a single moving electron.
- Pieter Zeeman

In the absence of a magnetic field the period of all
these oscillations is the same.
But as soon as the electron is exposed to the effect of a magnetic field,
its motion changes.
- Pieter Zeeman

 

Nature gives us all, including Prof.
Lorentz, surprises.
It was very quickly found that there are many exceptions
to the rule of splitting of the lines only into triplets.
- Pieter Zeeman

The magnetic cleavage of the spectral lines is dependent
on the size of the charge of the electron,
or, more accurately, on the ratio between the mass
and the charge of the electron.
- Pieter Zeeman

Now if this electron is displaced from its equilibrium position,
a force that is directly proportional to the displacement
restores it like a pendulum to its position of rest.
- Pieter Zeeman

I should point out, however, that at first some difficulty
was experienced in observing the phenomena predicted by the theory,
owing to the extreme smallness of the variations in
the period of oscillation.
- Pieter Zeeman

We studied the light source in the direction of the magnetic force,
we perforated the poles of the magnet;
but even in the direction of the magnetic lines of
force we found that our result was confirmed.
- Pieter Zeeman

Had we really succeeded therefore in altering the period of vibration,
which Maxwell, as I have just noted,
held to be impossible? Or was there some disturbing
circumstances from one or more factors which distorted the result?
- Pieter Zeeman

Now all oscillatory movements of such an electron can
be conceived of as being split up into force,
and two circular oscillations perpendicular to this
direction rotating in opposite directions.
- Pieter Zeeman

According to well-known electrodynamic laws,
an electron moving in a magnetic field is acted upon
by a force which runs perpendicular to the direction
of motion of the electron and to the direction of the magnetic field,
and whose magnitude is easily determined.
- Pieter Zeeman

I count myself fortunate to be able to contribute to this work;
and the great interest which the Royal Swedish Academy
of Sciences has shown in my work and the recognition
that it has paid to my past successes,
convince me that I am not on the wrong track.
- Pieter Zeeman

It was not simply out of a spirit of contradiction
that I exposed a light source to magnetic forces.
The idea came to me during an investigation of the
effect discovered by Kerr on light reflected by magnetic mirrors.
- Pieter Zeeman

As the Pentagon makes plans for the largest troop rotation since World War II,
I will work with the Armed Services Committee to help
make this proposal a reality.
- Mike Rogers

For a traveler going from any place toward the north,
that pole of the daily rotation gradually climbs higher,
while the opposite pole drops down an equal amount.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

I've learned over the years that it doesn't matter
where you pitch in the rotation.
For me, preparation is everything.
- Cory Lidle

I shall now recall to mind that the motion of the heavenly bodies is circular,
since the motion appropriate to a sphere is rotation in a circle.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

I spent some time at White Memorial Medical Center
as a senior medical student doing a rotation in surgery;
however,
I felt I wasn't getting enough time assisting.
- Samuel Wilson

One day I discovered that one could get the barrier
to internal rotation in ethane approximately right using this method.
This was the beginning of my work on organic molecules.
- Roald Hoffmann

I mean, I can actually say goodbye to the game of golf,
never hit another golf shot the rest of my life and
I'd be happy because I can get back in life without any rotation.
- Greg Norman

It does not seem, however, that organic chemists were
much worried about barriers to rotation in organic
molecules in general at that time because there was
no technique available to demonstrate the phenomenon experimentally.
- Derek Harold Richard Barton

And that format was - we'd been using that format,
I guess, since the late '70s, and it was starting to get very predictable.
In other words, certain songs would surface in the
same points in the set every so often;
it was like rotation.
- Phil Lesh

I think it makes people in the Pentagon kind of nervous
to know that chemical agents and environmental factors
could cause so much damage in terms of what may happen in the future.
- Bernard Sanders

The Pentagon still has not given a name to the Iraqi war.
Somehow 'Operation Re-elect Bush' doesn't seem to be popular.
- Jay Leno

The claim that the World Trade Center and the Pentagon
were attacked because fundamentalists hate our prosperity
and freedom is a ridiculous lie.
- L. Neil Smith

The vast amount of waste and sheer stupidity in government -
from the Pentagon to the Food and Drug Administration -
could fill committee agendas for years.
- Tom Coburn

We pretended there was no problem with Agent Orange

When cutting staff at the Pentagon, don't eliminate
the thin layer that assures civilian control.

It is rubble.
- Jeff Sessions

More has been screwed up on the battlefield and misunderstood

The Pentagon today will not allow any of these people
who work for the Pentagon,
to talk to the media.
They have gagged them from talking to members of Congress.

Well, it is true that they did - the Pentagon did impose
rules for governing the handling of the Koran in January of 2003,
after there had been complaints about the handling
of the Koran from detainees,
from the International Red Cross.
- Michael Isikoff

Fear is a great motivator.
Look at what 9-11 has accomplished -
My god.
It's slammed the economy, It's - I can't even begin
to detail all it's actually done,
other than bring down the buildings and hit the Pentagon.
It's stunned the entire nation.
- Art Bell

Since the Pentagon underestimated the number of troops
required after the end of hostilities,
we were not prepared to prevent looting or to guard
hundreds of weapons dumps spread throughout the country.
- John Spratt

Tonight, I concurred with President Bush when he stated
that the decisions on future involvement of U.S.
troops in Iraq should be left to the Pentagon and not
politicians in Washington.
- Howard Coble

The Pentagon said that these prisoners were kept in
accordance with the Geneva Convention,
and of course I was not reassured by that,
but I couldn't prove that that was wrong;
so we're clearer about that.
- Peter Singer

I visited the Pentagon a few days after September 11,
and I still remember so vividly the smell of terror
surrounding the entire building and complex.
I was angry that such a brutal act of violence was
committed against innocent people.
- Randy Forbes

Here at home, when Americans were standing in long
lines to give blood after the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon,
we squandered an obvious opportunity to make service a noble cause again,
and rekindle an American spirit of community.
- Joe Biden

People in the Pentagon had colleagues killed and maimed by bin Laden.
They're trying to find bin Laden and kill him and his cult.
Naturally they consider that a legitimate thing to do,
but they're having mixed success at the job.
- Bruce Sterling

I would say that the Pentagon Papers case of 1971 -
in which the government tried to block the The New
York Times and The Washington Post that they obtained
from a secret study of how we got involved in the war in Vietnam -
that is probably the most important case.
- Floyd Abrams

Yesterday, the Pentagon warned U.S.

don't tell Geraldo.'
