The Contributions of Faraday and Maxwell to Electrical Science deals with the development of electromagnetic theory following the establishment of the basis for the first law of circulation relating to the magnetic fields generated by steady currents. This book is organized into two parts encompassing nine chapters that specifically treat the provision of the basis for the second law of circulation, the law that deals with the induction of currents, which was predominantly the work of British physicists, Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell. Part I highlights their life, career, and contributions in electrical science. This part emphasizes Faraday’s discovery of electromagnetic induction and Maxwell’s development of electromagnetic theory. Part II presents their experimental studies on electricity and magnetism. This book will prove useful to physicists, electrical scientists, and researchers in the allied fields.
