Edison, like Twain and Wright in the same era, was a difficult character w. The first usage of the word electricity is ascribed to Sir Thomas Browne in his work, Pseudodoxia Epidemica. The first appearance of the term electromagnetism on the other hand comes from an earlier date: Magnes, by the Jesuit luminary Athanasius Kircher, carries on page the provocative chapter-heading: "Elektro-magnetismos i.e.

One day inThomas Edison flipped a switch that lit up lower Manhattan with incandescent light and changed the way people live ever after. The electric light bulb was only one of thousands of Edison’s inventions, which include the phonograph and the kinetoscope, an early precursor to the movie camera/5(28).

Thomas Davenport, inventor of the electric motor, was a self-educated blacksmith with a passion for reading. The momentous news that roused the blacksmith's curiosity was that the Penfield and Hammond Iron Works, on the other side of Lake Champlain in the Crown Point hamlet of Ironville in New York state, was using a new method for separating.

Thomas Edison and Alessandro Volta were pioneers in DC current and wrote much of electricity’s history. But as societies grew the use of DC over long transmission distances became too inefficient. Nikola Tesla changed all that with the invention of alternating current electrical systems.

In Thomas Edison noted the phenomenon of thermionic emission, known thereafter as the “Edison Effect”. Edison's laboratory was preoccupied with developing a magnetic ore-separator and putting it to practical use. He acquired rights to abandoned mines and set up a pilot project at the Ogden mine in New Jersey.

Edison poured money into the project, gradually selling most of his interest in the General Electric Company to pay for his work.
