Faraday begins his long, eventful, and important life.
Humphry Davy takes Faraday as an assistant.
Humphry Davy had damaged his eyesight, and chose Faraday as his assistant after he had sent him a 300 page book of notes he had taken in Davy's lectures.
Faraday discovers electromagnetic induction.
August 29, 1831
Induction is the production of voltage from movement. An example is a card reader, which gets electronic signals from the black bar on the card.
Faraday earns Doctorate of Civil Law from Oxford.
He was also offered to be knighted around this time, but turned it down.
Faraday writes his Laws of Electrolysis.
This discovery led to the modern-day Lithium-Ion batteries.
Faraday discovers diamagnetism
He didn't really discover it, but he found that every material reacted to a magnetic field, and the previous scientist only tested on bismuth. Diamagnetism is the property of elements to be repelled by a magnetic field.
August 25, 1867
On this day, a very important life came to an end.
