Learn about the life and achievements of Andre-Marie Ampere, the French physicist who founded and named the science of electrodynamics, now known as electromagnetism. Find out how he discovered the ampere, the unit for measuring electric current, and how he influenced the development of science and technology.
André-Marie Ampère, 1775 – 1836. Memoirs, switched from third person to first person. Mathematics. Aged 13, André-Marie began a serious study of mathematics using books in his father’s library. He submitted a paper about conic sections to the Academy of Lyon, but it was rejected.
André Marie Ampère, (born Jan. 22, 1775, Lyon, France—died June 10, 1836, Marseille), French physicist, founder of the science of electromagnetism. A prodigy who mastered the entire known field of mathematics by age 12, he became a professor of physics, chemistry, and mathematics.
André-Marie Ampère. Although he was not the first person to observe a connection between electricity and magnetism, André-Marie Ampère was the first scientist to attempt to theoretically explain and mathematically describe the phenomenon.
André-Marie Ampère made important contributions to the theory of Electricity and magnetism. His theory became fundamental for 19 th century developments.
André-Marie Ampère died on 10 June 1836 in Marseille, where, despite his poor state of health, he had traveled to carry out a university inspection. He is buried in the Montmartre cemetery in Paris, in a tomb that he shares with his beloved and admired father Jean-Jacques.
André-Marie Ampère. French mathematician and physicist who made important discoveries toward the understanding of electricity and magnetism. Ampère proposed, with Amedeo Avogadro (1776-1856), that equal volumes of gas at the same pressure and temperature contain the same number of particles.
