Abstract

THE whole scientific world will join in celebrating Faraday's discovery of electromagnetic induction, and it will certainly not be passed over in Bohemia. I may be excused if I begin with myself. In our middle school (gymnasium) we had a most excellent teacher of physics, Prof. Pokorny. In his clear and beautiful lectures, which would have served as a model to those given at a university, he taught us in 1870 the principal discoveries in the domain of electricity. He spoke of Galvani, Volta, Carlyle and Nicholson, Ørsted, Ampère, and others, but before all he praised the discoveries of Faraday.
