Michael Faraday was an English scientist who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry (1791-1867).

He is best known for his discovery of the principle of electromagnetic induction and the laws of electrolysis. In Experimental Researches in Electricity, first published in three volumes between 1839 and 1855, Faraday discusses the inquiries that led to his development of the first dynamo (the precursor of modern dynamos and generators), and his establishment of the foundations of classical field theory. His descriptions contain scarcely a hint of mathematics, and he relates the progress of his experiments in direct, clear language. Using the primitive tools available to him in his time, in conjunction with his great imaginative gifts, Faraday explains how he arrived at his profound conclusions with stunning simplicity.

On The Various Forces Of Nature
Six lectures on gravitation, cohesion, chemical affinity, heat, magnetism, and electricity delivered by the author to a juvenile audience during the Christmas holidays of 1859-1860. A fascinating introduction to some of Faraday's most important work on the correlation between the physical forces of the universe. The subjects include the components, function, and weight of the atmosphere; capillary attraction; the carbon content in oxygen and living bodies; respiration and its analogy to the burning of a candle; and much more.
