He was a forward-thinking Serbian-American scientist and inventor who made important contributions to physics and engineering. He is best known for his work with electricity, including the design of alternating current (AC) electricity. He also had a flair for the dramatic, creating elaborate experiments and showcasing his work with spectacular demonstrations.
He is one of the most influential scientists of all time. He came up with numerous theories and contributed ideas to many different fields including physics, mathematics and philosophy. His three laws of motion relate the forces acting on a body to its motion. The first is the law of inertia. The second is commonly stated as ‘force equals mass times acceleration. The third and final law is commonly known as ‘to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’.
He created a comprehensive periodic table of elements, incorporating the Newland's law of octaves and leaving blanks where he theorized the presence of elements that had not yet been discovered. Most of these gaps were later found to be correct.
He was a physicist, chemist and a pioneer of electrical science. He is most famous for his invention of the electric battery. Battery produced a steady source of electric current for the first time ever. All electrical devices depend on electric current. Without his invention, there could be no modern technology.
