With this app students learn about the life and contributions to our understanding of electromagnetism made by Michael Faraday. It discusses some of the early experiments that reveal the properties of electromagnetism and how electricity and magnetism are inextricably related. Diagrams are used to illustrate key concepts.

Michael Faraday proposed a theory to explain electromagnetism. Through his laboratory experiments he showed how a magnet can have an effect on the flow of a current.

The app presents a survey of the significant contributions that Michael Faraday made to further the development of modern chemistry and physics. He was the first to reveal the nature of electromagnetism. He showed through his famous 'ice pail' experiment that the charge of a circuit is influenced by charged metal sphere.

Students will enjoy using this graphically illustrated, interactive learning tool. The timeline feature presents key events in the history of chemistry and physics and tapping on timeline points brings up descriptions of each of the milestones that led to our modern understanding of electromagnetism. A quiz function helps students demonstrate their comprehension of the reading material. Key concepts related to electromagnetism are shown in colorful illustrations. We hope this app will inspire students to study chemistry, physics and science in general. The app shows that Michael Faraday certainly deserves a significant place in the history of electromagnetism.
