The First Electrical Theorists

The historical development of science often depends upon the contributions of individual scientists and researchers who being unaware of each other oftentimes work within the same field . Such phenomenon is not deductive to any of the scientists ' credit but complimentary to his or her thoughts manifestations . In other word , if knowledge of one scientist is unknown to another , his or her inventions might have been never seen the light of day . The subfield of physics , known as electrical

phenomenon , is an example of such . Through and with mutual contributions of many scientists , we , today , enjoy practical applications of Coulomb law , Ohm 's law , Ampere 's relationship between electricity and magnetism , and Volta 's law of capacitance

Charles Augustine de Coulomb (1736-1806 ) is known to be a discoverer of HYPERLINK "http /en .wikipedia .org /wiki /Coulomb 27s_law " Coulomb 's law . Coulomb law defines the force of electrostatic attraction and repulsion . The SI unit of electrostatic charge was named in his honor In his pursuit for knowledge he studied electricity and magnetism . His investigations included such famous work as Thyorie des machines simples , en ayant ygard au frottement de leurs parties et a la roideur des cordages (which covered the laws of friction . His contemporaries considered him the father of mathematical theory that described the laws of electrical and magnetic force . He became known due to the research he did in Richefort . That research won him the double first prize in 1781 at the academy in France . After that , he developed 25 scientific s from 1781 to 1806 . After his travel (on business ) to England , he was elected to the position of the president of the Institute de France After the Revolution , he resumed his research and was elected as member for physique experimentale in the new Institute of France . He was later appointed (1802 ) as the Inspector General of Public Instruction . He served in this position until his death (Michels , 1956

HYPERLINK "http /en .wikipedia .org /wiki /Count " Count Alessandro Giuseppe Antonio Anastasio Volta ( HYPERLINK "http /en .wikipedia .org /wiki /1745 " 1745 - HYPERLINK "http /en .wikipedia .org /wiki /1827 " 1827 ) was an HYPERLINK "http /en .wikipedia .org /wiki /Italy " Italian HYPERLINK "http /en .wikipedia .org /wiki /Physics " physicist known primarily for inventing an electric battery . He named his invention electrophorus which he described as the device producing a static electric charge . He was also known to work with chemistry of gases producing the effect of ignition . Later , in his life , he came up with what we know today as capacitance discovering the proportional law that is known as Volta 's Law of HYPERLINK "http /en .wikipedia .org /wiki /Capacitance " Capacitance . His work is most known as his development of the concept of state saturation of bodies (Michels , 1956 . According to Lenard (1933 , in the year of 1775 , he was awarded the professorship of experimental physics . Because of the influence of another scientist , Volta changed his concept of natural saturation...
