General Interest Article
The Mission-Michael Faraday has been called the greatest experimental scientist of all ages. No one who has read the biography of this eminent man of science will be inclined to dispute such a statement. Faraday was interested in all phases of scientific thought but devoted his energies particularly to chemical and electrical research. It is no exaggeration to say that he created modern industrial electricity. His experimental researches covered a period of forty-four years. The mere list of the titles of his papers fills several pages in the scientific catalog published by the Royal Society.
