Andres-Marie Ampere

Poster by Jonas Snyder

Andres Ampere was an exceptional French Mathematician (born in 1775) who studied electricity and magnetism. His greatest discovery was that there was a relationship between the two fields, and he named it, obviously, Electromagnetism. Electromagnetism is the magnetic field produced by an electrical current running through a wire, and it is the basis for electromagnets, powerful magnets able to be turned on and off.
