William Sturgeon

Creatorof the Electromagnet


Childhood early career

Childhood/early Career


Moving up to the big leagues

Moving up to the Big leagues

  • He began lecturing at the East India Company’s Royal Military College on science and philosophy in 1824 (where he created the practical electromagnet.)

  • Creation of the electromagnet allowed for the construction of many modern basic technology. Like the electric motor and telegraph

  • He began lecturing at “The Gallery” and his lectures became very popular.

  • Sturgeon tried to make his lectures fun for the public(mostly for funding from the public, but still a nice gesture!)

Michael Faraday

André-Marie Ampère

Hans Christian Orstread

Credited for proving there was a connection between electricity and magnetics

He found that the magnetized needle of a compass was deflected whenever the electric current through a voltaic pile(an early form of the battery)

English physicist and chemist

Considered by most to be the “greatest experimentalist who ever lived.”

“He was the first to produce an electric current from a magnetic field, invented the first electric motor and dynamo, demonstrated the relation between electricity and chemical bonding, discovered the effect of magnetism on light, and discovered and named diamagnetism, the peculiar behavior of certain substances in strong magnetic fields.”

Built extensively on Orstreads work.

His greatest contribution to science by rigorously applying mathematics to the study of electromagnetism.
