History of Michael Faraday

History of Michael Faraday

Michael Faraday FRS ( 22 September 1791 - 25 August 1867) was an English scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry.

His main discoveries include the principles underlying electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis.

Although Faraday received little formal education, he was one of the most influential

scientists in history. It was by his research on

the magnetic field around a conductor

carrying a direct current that Faraday established the basis for the concept of the electromagnetic field in physics. Faraday also established that magnetism could affect rays

of light and that there was an underlying relationship between the two phenomena.

He similarly discovered the principles of

electromagnetic induction and diamagnetism,and the laws of electrolysis. His inventions of electromagnetic rotary devices formed the foundation of electric motor technology, and it was largely due to his efforts that electricity became practical for use in technology.
