  • Description or summary of the audiobook: One of the greatest experimental scientists of all time, Michael Faraday (1791-1867) developed the first electric motor, electric generator, and dynamo - essentially creating the science of electrochemistry. This book, the result of six lectures he delivered to young students at London's Royal Institution, concerns another form of energy - candlelight.Faraday titled the lectures 'The Chemical History of a Candle,' choosing the subject because, as he explained, 'There is not a law under which any part of this universe is governed which does not come into play and is not touched upon [during the time a candle burns].'That statement is the foundation for a book that describes, with great clarity, the components, function and weight of the atmosphere; the function of a candle wick; capillary attraction; the carbon content in oxygen and living bodies; the production of carbon dioxide from coal gas and sugar; the properties of carbonic acid; respiration and its analogy to the burning of a candle; and much more. There is also a chapter comprising Faraday's 'Lecture on Platinum.'A useful classroom teaching tool, this classic text will also appeal to a wide audience interested in scientific inquiry.
