Micheal Faraday lived in London at 1791 to 1867. Micheal Faraday was born in a poor family. His father was a blacksmith who had migrated from the north of England earlier in 1791 to look for work. His mother was a country woman of great calm and wisdom who supported her son emotionally through a difficult childhood. Faraday was one of four children, all of whom were hard put to get enough to eat, because of his fathers illness.

Facts and Historical Timeline

- 1809 Career Philosophical Miscellany, he has begun to keep a 'philosophical miscellany' where he records what he reads and performs what experiments he can in the back of the shop.- 1810 Career Early Scientific Education Faraday begins to attend meetings at City Philosophical Society and lectures on scientific subjects including electricity by John Tatum.- July 12, 1812Career First recorded experiment Faraday decomposes sulphate of magnesium.- 1818 - 1822Career Steel alloys From 1818 to 1822 Faraday works on a project to improve the quality of steel alloys.- September 3, 1821Discovery/Invention Electro-magnetic rotations He discovers electro-magnetic rotations (which can be viewed as the principle behind the electric motor).- March 6, 1823 Discovery/Invention Liquefies a gas (chlorine) for the first time.- 1827Publication Publishes Chemical Manipulation, his only book His other publications are collections of papers and transcriptions of his lectures. He continues work on the glass project. From December, two thirds of his time is spent making and testing glass ingots.

Electromagnetic induction is an incredibly useful phenomenon with a wide variety of applications. Induction is used in power generation and power transmission, and it's worth taking a look at how that's done. There are other effects with some interesting applications to consider, too, such as eddy currents.
