First, it is unscientific to accept any theory as fact. Afundamental rule of the scientific method is fallibilism, whichrecognizes that all knowledge we have is only the closestapproximation to the truth that we've found up to now. A great example of the need for this is uniformitarianism. What...

that acoustic signals could be transmitted in the form ofelectricity through wires.
He pioneered sterilizes milk for safe drinking. (Pasteurizing)
If you mean the microbiologist Louis Pasteur then no, since he was born a year after Napoleon died.
With the discovery of electricity, everybody expected that all cars would be electric and run on rechargeable batteries. Tesla had gone one better and actually produced a working automobile that ran on electricity taken from the surrounding ether like an antenna picks up radio waves. This would...
each newton of force equals 9.8 pounds .+++ .I am afraid you have mixed both units and systems there. Theyhave equivalents but are not equal. .The Newton is a unit of Force or "weight", not Mass. .The Kilogramme and the Pound are units of Mass, not Force, andby totally different systems of...

He proved that lighting is made up of electricity.
No-one "invented" electricity. It is a natural force. Howevermany people discovered its nature and laws, and it was MichaelFaraday who realised the relationships between electricity andmagnetism, hence making possible the generation of electricity, andthe electric motor.
Black Hawk was a war leader and warrior originated from SaukAmerican Indian Tribe which is the mid west of united states atpresent.
By looking at the equation F=ma we have two ways to increase acceleration. If we keep the mass constant and increase the force applied then the acceleration of the object will increase. If we keep the force constant and use a smaller mass then the mass will experience a greater acceleration...
The theory of endosymbiosis states that eukaryotic cells evolvedwhen some prokaryotes were engulfed by others and avoided beingdigested. The theory states that chloroplasts developed fromphotosynthetic bacteria and mitochondria from aerobic bacteria. Evidence in support of the endosymbiotic theory...

Nicola Tesla is best known for his dispute with Thomas Edisonconsidering alternate and direct current, respectively. Edison forexample tried to prove danger of alternate current by killing theelephant with the help of it but Nicola Tesla was the winner of thedispute.
Imagination and creativity is more important than knowledge.
I would ask him why he rejects certain experiments on light that goin circles.
They argued because Thomas Edison was supporting the electric flowof direct current, whereas Nikola Tesla wanted Alternating currentto catch on. Today, we generally use alternating current.
