Einstein never learned to drive.  Ironically, it turns out that his special theory of relativity has a key role in the long-used lead-acid battery. The large positive charge on the Pb nucleus causes electrons near it to move rapidly, with up to 60% of the speed of  light and also to draw closer to the

Unformatted text preview: nucleus. The net effect is to increase the EMF between the Pb and PbO2 electrodes up to 2.05 V, whereas without the relativistic contribution it would be much smaller, only about 0.4 V. See Economist article, 15 Jan 2011, p. 89-90 and Phys. Rev. Lett. 106 , 018301 (2011)....
