Albert Einstein characterised the paintings of James Clerk Maxwell because the "most profound and the main fruitful that physics has skilled because the time of Newton." Max Planck went even additional, mentioning that "he completed greatness unequalled," and Richard Feynman asserted that "From an extended view of the heritage of mankind — obvious from, say, 10000 years from now — there will be little question that the main major occasion of the 19th century might be judged as Maxwell's discovery of the legislation of electrodynamics."
Maxwell made quite a few different contributions to the development of technology, however the maximum paintings of his existence used to be dedicated to electrical energy. An effortless Treatise on electrical energy appeared at a time while only a few books on electric measurements have been to be had to scholars, and its compact remedy not just elucidates the idea of electrical energy but in addition serves to increase electric rules in readers' minds. the writer describes experiments that reveal the primary evidence touching on an electrical cost as a volume in a position to being measured, deductions from those evidence, and the exhibition of electric phenomena.
This quantity, released posthumously from Maxwell's lecture notes on the Cavendish Laboratory — which he based on the collage of Cambridge — is supplemented via a variety of articles from his landmark ebook, Electricity and Magnetism. A vintage of technological know-how, this quantity is an eminently appropriate textual content for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students.
