             The English scientist Michael Faraday was born on September 22, 1791 in London. He lot of contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. He came from a very poor family. His father was a blacksmith. The family lived in a degree of poverty. Faraday was received little formal education. He worked as delivery boy in a bookshop to earn money for his family. He worked hard and impressed his employer and the employer give him to promotion as apprentice bookbinder.

            During the next seven years he educated himself by reading books on wide range of scientific subjects. In 1812 Faraday attend for lectures given by the chemist Humphry Davy at the royal institution. He prepared notes and pictures about the lectures and send them to Davy. Also he wrote about asking for a job as his assistant. Davy appointed him to the job of chemical assistant at the Royal institution.

           After a year later Davy invites Faraday to follow 18 month European tour. In that tour he meets many influential scientists. After the European tour, Faraday continued to his work at Royal institution and helped the Davy and other Scientist for their experiments. After a few years later Davy said that his biggest invention was Faraday.

            In 1821 Faraday was published his findings about electromagnetic rotation. In 1831, Faraday discovered the electromagnetic induction, the principle behind the electric transformer and generator. This discovery was crucial in allowing electricity to be transformed from a curiosity into a powerful new technology. During the remainder of the decade he worked on developing his ideas about electricity.

           Michael Faraday died in London, aged 75, on August 25, 1867. He was survived by his wife Sarah. They had no children. He had been a devout Christian all of his life, belonging to a small branch of the religion called Sandemanians.
During his life, he had been offered burial in Westminster Abbey along with Britain’s kings and queens and scientists of the stature of Isaac Newton. He turned this down, in favour of a more modest end. His grave, where Sarah is also buried, can still be seen in London’s Highgate Cemetery.
