Instant Expert: The equations that explain the universe

When: 2nd September

Equations are the bedrock of science, expressing how numbers or physical properties relate at a fundamental level. Without equations, most of our technology would never have been invented.

Equations have brought us radio and computers and sent us to the Moon, and are an ideal lens to view the key developments in science.

At this event, six expert speakers will guide you on a tour of the most fascinating equations that explain our universe. On the way you’ll learn why the Pythagorean theorem is so important, how Newton devised the law of gravity and all about the history of thermodynamics.
