Kimberly M. Naputo 10-Proton SCIENTIST BRIEF BACKGROUND CONTRIBUTION 1. CHARLES AGUSTIN COULUMB Born June 14, 1736, Angoulême, France Died August 23, 1806, Paris French physicist He also established the inverse square law of attraction and repulsion of unlike and like magnetic poles. He is best known for the formulation of Coulomb’s law, which states that the force between two electrical charges is proportional to the product of the charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. 2. Andre Marie Ampere Born January 22, 1775, Lyon, France Died June 10, 1836, Marseille French physicist He showed that two parallel wires carrying electric currents repel or attract each other, depending on whether the currents flow in the same or opposite directions, respectively. His name endures in everyday life in the ampere, the unit for measuring electric current. He founded and named the science of electrodynamics, now known as electromagnetism. 3. George Simon Ohm born March 16, 1789, Erlangen, Bavaria [Germany] Died July 6, 1854, Munich German physicist He discovered the law, named after him, which states that the current flow through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference (voltage) and inversely proportional to the resistance. The ohm, the physical unit measuring electrical resistance, also was named for him. 4. Michael Faraday Born September 22, 1791, Newington, Surrey, England Died August 25, 1867, Hampton Court, Surrey) English physicist and chemist

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
