It is not easy feat to become an inspiration of Albert Einstein, considering that he is one of the most famous and recognized scientist. Of three people whose picture hung on Einstein’s wall, Michael Faraday was one of them. Although Faraday had come from a lower class in the 1800s, his eagerness to learn more about the world propelled him to great discoveries that changed the world. One of the most important findings for the future of both technology and the field of physics was Faraday’s breakthrough of the electromagnetic induction and his discovery of the magnetic field. His concept of induction looks at the way changing magnetic fields can cause the current to flow in wires. Any change in the magnetic environment of a coil wire will cause a voltage to be induced in the coil. No matter how much is changed, a voltage will be generated. Faraday’s first set up of his lab did not induce current. He was able to hypothesize that a changing magnetic field was necessary to induce a current in a nearby circuit. He found the changes in the magnetic field and the …show more content…

He discovered that when an electrical conductor becomes charged, all of the extra charge sits on the outside of the conductor. This means that the extra charge does not appear on the inside of a room or cage made of metal. An external electrical field leads to rearrangement of the charges, and this cancels the field inside. Electric fields create forces on electrons in the conductor, creating a current, which will further the rearrangement. Faraday noticed that he conductor charge did not influence anything that was enclosed within. He even went as far as constructing a room that was coated with metal foil and used a electrostatic generator to create a high-voltage discharge that stroked the outside of his metal foil-coated room. Michael found no electric charge on the inside walls and had used an electroscope to prove

In this essay, the author

  • Describes the three people who inspired albert einstein, including michael faraday, who made the electromagnetic induction and magnetic field breakthroughs.
  • Explains how michael faraday's concept of induction looks at the way changing magnetic fields can cause the current to flow in wires.
  • Explains how faraday made a coil by wrapping wire and connecting it to the galvanometer, and moved the magnet back and forth inside the cylinder, indicating electromagnetic induction.
