Michael Faraday, the discoverer of electro-magnetic induction, electro-magnetic rotations, the magneto-optical effect, diamagnetism, field theory and much else besides died at Hampton Court on 25 August 1867. He was born in Newington Butts (the area of London now known as the Elephant and Castle) on 22 September 1791. As part of his careful work on electrolysis Faraday measured the amounts of different substances given off during the process. As a result of all his observations and measurements he formulated two laws which can be used to predict the outcome of any electrolysis. They are known as Faraday's laws and they are still in use today in schools, in scientific research and in industry. Read more
