Attended the lectures of Humphry Davy at the Royal Institution
Faraday hired by Davy at the Royal Institution
Faraday invents the electric motor
Becomes the "father" of cyrogenics after producing lab temperatures that were below freezing.
Discovered how to liquify carbon dioxide, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, and hydrogen bromide gases by placing them under pressure.
Davy takes credit
Discovers "benzene" (his greatest contribution to chemistry)
Faraday's laws of electrolysis
the mass of the substance liberated at an electrode during electrolysis is proportional to the amount of electricity going through the solution; and the mass liberated by a given amount of electricity is proportional to the atomic weight of the element liberated and inversely proportional to the "combining power" of the element liberated.
