Hi and welcome back to your Science Tuition. We hope you have been enjoying our chemistry lessons on the famous chemists.
In this Science Tuition lesson, we are continuing with our topic and taking our delve into the life of Pierre Curie.
Pierre was born on May 15th, 1859. He was a French physicist, physical chemist as well as a Nobel laureate. You might have heard his wife’s name (Marie Curie) as he was a major contributor to her theory as well. He initiated his scientific research in the fields of magnetism, radioactivity, piezoelectricity, and crystallography. He is known in the chemistry world as he and his wife discovered the elements radium and polonium. He also developed an instrument known as the Curie Scale to calculate the accurate data. The element curium with the atomic number 96, is named in honor of Pierre and Marie Curie.
That is all for today on Science Tuition. Stay tuned to learn more.
