The History Of The Atomic Theory And Michael Farrady

569 words - 2 pages

Michael Faraday was a firm believer that solid experimentation was needed in order for a theory to be supported. Whilst experimenting with electrical currents in 1819, he discovered that when a current passed through wire, it deflected the directional needle of a compass. This was the first time magnetism had been linked to electricity. From these observations, Faraday came to conclusion that electricity created some sort of magnetic field. After much deliberation he decided that the converse must be true as well, that magnetism creates electricity. This theory however, took him nine years to prove. Faraday continued his experimentations with electromagnetism. He found that he could make and iron nail into a magnet by placing it inside a coil of wire with current running through it. This was the first electromagnet to be invented. It was not until the 29th of August 1831 when he discovered electro-magnetic induction. This was the principle behind the electric transformer and generator. He created a circuit using a soft iron core ring linked through two detached coils of wire. One coil of wire was attached to a Galvanometer , and the coil formed an open circuit that connected to a power source. When the circuit was shut off a momentary current was induced in the secondary coil. When the circuit was reopened the same results occurred. Faraday removed the iron ring, and discovered by accident that when the circuit is closed, and the two separated coils are close to each other, the magnetism which formed in the coil connected to the power source will induce magnetism in...

1289 words - 5 pages the 20th century, several have had far-reaching ramifications and altered the course of history. Those tremendous advances that were made in science had tremendous effects worldwide and laid the foundation for further scientific developments that were to come. Enrico Fermi's contribution to the area of physics, which led to the development of the first atomic bomb, opened up the secret of the atom, unleashing its tremendous power. The world lost its innocence and entered the atomic age. There would be no turning back.

Necessity of the Atomic Bomb

1232 words - 5 pages this atomic bomb led to the US getting a head start in the nuclear arms race and the Cold War. Overall, the usage of this bomb not only affected the outcome of World War II but also set the stage for the next forty years of history. If the bomb were not used, the development of so many nuclear arms, and weapons of mass destruction would not have been created. Because of this decision, there were many advances in science, and many other fields
