Q. Consider the following statements with respect to “Einstein Tile”:
1.It explains the theory of relativity founded by Albert Einstein.
2.It will help physicists and chemists to understand the structure in which the atoms are ordered but do not have a repeating pattern.
Select the correct answer from the code given below:
Statement 1 is incorrect. Einstein Tile is a shape that could be singularly used to create a non-repeating (aperiodic) pattern on an infinitely large plane. The name bears no connection to Albert Einstein but means ‘one stone’ in German.
Statement 2 is correct. A group of four scientists have discovered an entirely new shape which has 13 sides and has named it “the hat”. It is the first ‘Einstein’ tile to have been found. Aperiodic tiling will help physicists and chemists understand the structures in which the atoms are ordered but do not have a repeating pattern.
