By James Clerk Maxwell

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 extra, pointing out that "he accomplished greatness unequalled," and Richard Feynman asserted that "From a protracted view of the background of mankind — noticeable from, say, 10000 years from now — there might be little question that the main major occasion of the 19th century can be judged as Maxwell's discovery of the legislation of electrodynamics."
Maxwell made various different contributions to the development of technology, however the maximum paintings of his lifestyles was once dedicated to electrical energy. An straight forward Treatise on electrical energy appeared at a time whilst only a few books on electric measurements have been on hand to scholars, and its compact remedy not just elucidates the speculation of electrical energy but in addition serves to increase electric rules in readers' minds. the writer describes experiments that show the valuable proof referring to an electrical cost as a volume able 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 by way of a range of articles from his landmark e-book, Electricity and Magnetism. A vintage of technological know-how, this quantity is an eminently compatible textual content for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students.
