The Search for Electromagnetic Induction (1820-1831). Experiment No. 20.
Devons, Samuel
This paper focuses on the search for electromagnetic induction from 1820 to 1831 and the efforts by Augustin Fresnel's colleague, Andre Marie Ampere, in electric and magnetic induction. Faraday's work is discussed with excerpts from his diary on electromagnetism. A variety of different experiments by researchers including Francoise Jean Arago, Barlow, Christie, Becquerel, Seebeck, Pohl, and Colladon, are integrated into this historical approach to physics. Experiments are described for students to do in the laboratory. The equipment for the experiments is illustrated. (SA)
