Example text

Despite opposition, Arago completely Arago, Dominique-François-Jean backed Fresnel’s theory, which was in direct conflict with the better-known corpuscular theory of light, in which light is made up of particles, as explained by SIR ISAAC NEWTON. Thanks in part to Arago’s belief in Fresnel’s theories, they were finally proven to be correct. In 1820 Arago became one of many scientists who became enthralled with the newly published theory of electromagnetism. Arago took simple steps to create an experiment in which he ran a current through a wire and attracted iron filings to the current, creating the first electromagnet.

He summarized his most important work in the paper “On Some Trends in the Development of Astrophysics,” published in the Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics, volume 18, 1980. ᨳ Anderson, Carl David (1905–1991) American Physicist Carl David Anderson began his studies in science in 1923 at the California Institute of Technology as an electrical engineering student. But he soon discovered physics and changed disciplines, and eventually changed the world with a scientific discovery that has been called one of the most momentous of the century.

Arago took simple steps to create an experiment in which he ran a current through a wire and attracted iron filings to the current, creating the first electromagnet. His next major interest was in sound waves. In 1822 Arago worked with Gaspard de Prony in a cannon-firing experiment to attempt to determine how fast sound traveled through air.
