Michael’s main focus of his research was on electricity. He experimented with the ideas of force which enabled him to make imperative discoveries about electricity.
He discovered the electromagnetic induction/ rotations, magneto-optical effect, and diamagnetism.
In 1821 he was experimenting with electromagnetism and by signifying the conversion of electrical energy into motive force, he devised the electric motor. The next few years he continued conducting experiments from his initial electromagnetic discovery.
In 1831 he also discovered the “induction ring”, which is the induction of electric currents and constructed the first electric dynamo. 1839 he conducted several experiments to determine the fundamental nature of electricity and established that electrostatic force consists of a field of curved lines of forces and conceived a specific inductive capacity.
He managed to do significant work in electrochemistry, stating the First and Second Laws of Electrolysis. He pretty much laid the basis of electrochemistry and his experiments led to many modern industries like the electric motor, generators, and transformers.
People use hair dryers in their everyday routines, to help them get ready for their day faster. When you plug a hair dryer into an outlet, electricity is ran through wires which then drives the electromagnet motor to turn the fan to blow out air, and electricity helps the blow dryer induct heat to dry your hair.
