Brownian motion




Brownian movement

Botanist Robert Brown, while observing pollen on the water’s surface, He noticed that the pollen was constantly moving in random directions. At that time (1827), Brown believed that these movements were driven by special powers as a living being.

But later, it turned out that the pollen moves as it collides with small particles around it. Einstein proved the theory of Brown’s motion mathematically.
