Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. While he was in the middle of his studies on relativity, Albert Limestein had forgotten the well-known equation for mass-energy equivalence that he was famous for discovering. He decided that he would use a fruit-themed mnemonic device to help recall the letters!
By taking the first letter of each fruit to represent the letters in the equation, what did he come up with?
2. This Danish physicist was a part of the Manhattan Project and had an element as well as an atomic model named after him, which Wikipedia says "depicts the atom as a small, positively charged nucleus surrounded by electrons that travel in circular orbits around the nucleus". If his name were fruit-themed, who would it be?
3. Here we have Papayagoras, who is famous for his Papayagorean theorem. Even though the Babylonians had been familiar with this theorem previously, he was the first to create proofs for it.

What fruity geometric aspect reductively describes his approach?
10. Gregor Mangol was the father of the modern science of genetics, having successfully studied the concept of genetic variance and forming the idea Mangolian inheritance.
