    The SI unit of capacitance called Faraday is named after him. It is also popularly known as the Faraday constant. Timeline of Accomplishments of Michael Faraday: Apprenticed to a book binder where he was associated for the next seven years; this gave him an opportunity to read and learn from a wide range of books on scientific subjects. Michael Faraday was one of the great scientists of the nineteenth century, who amongst his other discoveries, helped to convert electricity into a property that could be easily utilized. His main discoveries include electromagnetic induction, electrolysis, and diamagnetism.

    Through the combination of insatiable curiosity and a powerful will to succeed, he transcended his austere beginnings to conduct some of the most groundbreaking work of his day, discovering the principles that lay behind two key instruments of applied electricity: electromagnetic induction, which led to the transformer, and magneto-electric induction, which led to the generator. Michael Faraday’s Scientific Achievements and Discoveries. It would be easy fill a book with details of all of Faraday’s discoveries – in both chemistry and physics. It is not an accident that Albert Einstein used to keep photos of three scientists in his office: Isaac Newton, James Clerk Maxwell and Michael Faraday.

    Michael Faraday Biography Michael Faraday was one of the greatest scientists of all time and yet he received little formal education - during his life he made many discoveries associated with electrical science and chemistry. Some time between and Bacon was condemned to prison by his fellow Franciscans because of certain suspected noveltics in his teaching. How long he was imprisoned, it is not possible to determine. His last work, incomplete as so many others, was written in and shows him as aggressive as ever.
