7. Future Potential
Manifestations of Electricity were noticed from time immemorial. Comprehensible formulations regarding its nature were obscure till the elapsing of seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. But it could not be put to practical use till the end of the second of half of the 19th century except a few rudimentary contrivances for residential and industrial use. Industry and consequently was configured by the rapid expansion of electrical technology.Almost unlimited number of electrical appliances e.g. computation, communication, transport, lighting, heating gave a new look to the modern industrial society.
1. Electric Fish:
Long before the birth of electricity, people were aware of shock from electric fish. About 2750 B.C. Ancient Egyptians called ‘Thunderer of the Nile’ and Protector of Other Fish. About 1000 years latter it is also referred in the Roman and Greek Literature and also in the writings of Arab Naturalists and physicians . Touching Electric Fish and receiving an electric shock was considered a remedy for gout and headache.
2. Cat Fish:
Electric shocks inflicted by Cat Fish are mentioned several writers of ancient civilizations. Torpedo Rays are that could travel quite a long distance and also that some objects were considered as conductors for these shocks and rays, are also mentioned in a similar style.
This is an Arabic Word meaning lightening. Before 15 century AD the discovery and identity of lightening as electricity has been attributed to Arab.
1. Benjamin Franklin
In 18th century Benjamin Franklin conducted extensive research compiled by Joseph Priestley. He was so great an enthusiast for the Electricity in the Offing that he sold his possessions for financing his research. He performed an experiment for proving that lightening is electricity in June 1752. He flew a kite when it was a bit cloudy and lightening was also off and on. He used a copper wire for the kite and tied a key at the other end of the wire. When it struck lightening, continuous sparking from the key to the back of his hand proved that lightening was also in the nature of electricity.
2. Willam Gilbert
By studying magnetism demonstrated by lodestone and the effect of amber on rubbing, he distinguished static electricity from dynamic electricity. First time he used the word ‘electricus’ (Meaning “of amber” or “like amber”) for pointing to the attribute of amber for attracting other bodies.
3. Michael Faraday:
Foundation of Electric Motor Technology was played by the Discoveries made by Michael Faraday.
4. Abut a dozen scientist
Alexander Graham Bell, Ottó Bláthy, Thomas Edison, Galileo Ferraris, Oliver Heaviside, Ányos Jedlik, Lord Kelvin, Sir Charles Parsons, Ernst Werner von Siemens, Joseph Swan, Nikola Tesla and George Westinghouse help make electricity turn from a scientific curiosity into an indispensable tool for modern life and becoming a driving force of the Second Industrial Revolution.
A discovery that electrodes illuminated with ultraviolet light create electric sparks more easily was made by Heinrich Herts.
Einstein was awarded Nobel Prize for “his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect” in 1921.For Explaining the experimental data from the Photo-Electrics Effect in 1905, Einstein (as being the result of light energy being carried in discrete quantized packets). energizing electrons. Quantum Revolution was initiated, thus.Read full article here:
