Service Delivery vs. Service Excellence explores the opposing forces at work during the patient healthcare journey and the measures that can be taken to create caring cultures that result in highly satisfied patients. You too can create outstanding patient experiences.< Less
The Equivalence Of Gravitational Field And Time III By Ilija Barukcic
eBook (PDF): $3.00
Albert Einstein’s historically very important attempt to unify gravitation and electromagnetism ended without a real breakthrough. Unfortunately, the attempts to unify gravitation with the... More > other known fundamental forces of nature are still unsuccessful, a solution of this problem is not in sight. Must we accept at the end that something like a unified field theory is not possible, even in principle? According to Einstein, gravitation, which is something like a manifestation of curved space and time, is caused by the presence of matter. In other words matter and gravitational field are determined by each other. But gravitational field and time are related too. A new understanding of the relationship between time and gravitational field can enable a new starting point of a successful unified field theory. In so far, the purpose of this paper is to use scalars and to make the prove that time is equivalent to the gravitational field and vice versa.< Less
