Century is the century of electricity. Indeed, some say the space age, some say the atomic age, but all of this however the importance of - relatively little influence on the daily life. As with electricity. Unimaginable be like to live without electricity either way. Endlessly from morning to morning we took advantage of the power. The fact is, there is no type of technology is so widely dispersed rather than the use of electricity.

Many prominent contributor in terms of electricity: Charles Augustine de Coulomb, Count Alessandro Volta, Hans Christian Oersted and Andre Marie Ampere. Those magnate is among the best in the field of electricity. However, the peak bin is the culmination of all the British scientist Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell. While the work of two people relating to each other and a full-complement, but they are not within a team, each creating a personal, because it can be both a place of honor in this list.

Michael Faraday was born in 1791 in Newington, England. Origin of the family dispossessed and generally learn on their own. At the age of fourteen years he was an apprentice so builders volumes and selling books, and he used this opportunity many people read books like crazy. When stepping age twenty, he visited the lectures given by renowned British scientist Sir Humphry Davy. Faraday was fascinated and gaping-gaping. He wrote a letter to Davy and short stories lady luck accepted as his assistant. Within a few years, Faraday was able to make new discoveries on the results of his own creation. Although he did not have sufficient background in mathematics, as a natural scientist he was unchallenged.
Biography Of Michael Faraday (1791-1867)
Faraday first important discovery in the field of electricity occurred in 1821. Oersted two years earlier had found that the magnetic needle compass can be shifted if the normal electrical current flowed in the wire are not far apart. These make Faraday concluded, if the magnet diketatkan, moving it wires. Working on the basis of these allegations, he managed to make a clear scheme where the wire will constantly rotating magnet adjacent to all electrical power is applied to the wire. Indeed, in this case the Faraday had discovered the first electric motor, a first scheme uses an electric current to create something moving objects. No matter how primitive, Faraday's discovery of an "ancestor" of all electric motors used today's world.

This is an outstanding pacesetter. However, its practical usefulness is limited utility, as long as there is a method to drive electric current from the battery chemistry than simple at the time. Faraday sure, there must be a way of using magnets for electric drive, and he's constantly looking for a way how to find the method. Now, the magnetic sedentary does not affect the electric current adjacent to the wire. But in 1831, Faraday discovered that when a magnet passed through a piece of wire, current will flow in the wire while the magnet moves. This is called "electro magnetic influence," and this is called a "Faraday's law" and is generally considered the most important discoveries of Faraday and greatest.

This is a monumental discovery, for two reasons. First, the "Faraday's law" has a fundamental importance in relation to our theoretical understanding of electro-magnetic. Secondly, electro magnetic can be used to drive continuous electric current as demonstrated by the Faraday through manufacturing the first electric dynamo. Although the power generator to supply power our cities and factories today is much more perfect than what is done Faraday, but all based on a similar principle to the effect of electro-magnetic.

Faraday also contributed in the field of chemistry. He made a plan to change the gas so fluid, she finds various types of chemicals, including benzene. More importantly, the work of his efforts in the field of electro chemistry (chemical investigation due to electrical current). Faraday investigation with great precision to produce two laws "elektrolysis" which penyebutannya coupled with his name which is the basis of the electro chemistry. He also popularized a lot of the terms used in the field such as anode, cathode, electrode, and ion.

And it is likewise a Faraday introduced to the world of physics important ideas about the magnetic lines and electric power lines. With the emphasis that it is not the magnetic field itself but in between, he helped prepare the way for various kinds of advances in modern physics, including Maxwell's statement about the similarities between the two expressions through the sign (=) as 2x + 5 = 10. Faraday also discovered, if the light is passed through a blend of the two magnetic fields, combination of them will change. These findings have special significance, because this is the first clue that there is a relationship between light with magnet.

Faraday not only smart but also good-looking and had a style as speaker. However, he was modest, did not take care in terms of fame, money and adulation. He rejected been knighted and also refused to be president of the British Royal Society. Live long and happy marriage, but no children. He died in 1867 near the city of London.
