Ampere- Science

Storyboard Text

  • André-Marie Ampère was born in Lyon, France on January 20, 1775.
  • Ampère’s father actualized the ideal of "education direct from nature" by allowing his son to educate himself within the walls of his well-stocked library.
  • Ampère immediately set to work developing a mathematical and physical theory to understand the relationship between electricity and magnetism
  • Most important was the principle that came to be called Ampère's law which states that the mutual action of two lengths of current-carrying wire is proportional to their lengths and to the intensities of their currents.
  • Ampère also offered a physical understanding of the electromagnetic relationship, theorizing the existence of an “electrodynamic molecule” that served as the constituent element of electricity and magnetism.
  • Yet, his health began to fail, and he died while performing a university inspection on June 10, 1836 in Marseille.
