Hans Christian Ørsted
Hans Christian Ørsted (Rudkøbing 14 August,1777 – 9 Mairch,1851 in Copenhagen) wis a Dens pheesicist an chemist, influenced bi the conceits o Immanuel Kant. In 1820 he diskivered the relationship atween eletric an magnetism in an unco semple experiment. He shawed that a wire cairyin a current dow deflect a magnetised compass needle. Ørsted dinnae suggest onie guid explanation o the phenomenon, nor did he ettle ti represent the phenomenon in a mathematical framework.
Ørsted wisna the first body ti discover that eletric an magnetism are relatit. Gian Domenico Romagnosi, an Italian legal scholar, discovert the connection 18 year afore. An accoont o Romagnosi's discovery wis published in 1802 in an Italian newspaper, but it wisna noticed bi the scienteific commonty.
In 1825 he produced alumeenium for the first time.
The CGS unit o magnetic induction (the oersted) is named in honour o his wark in the field o electromagnetism.
On his passin in 1851, Hans Christian Ørsted wis birriet in the Assistens Kirkegård in the Nørrebro section o Copenhagen. He wis the brither o the politeecian Anders Sandøe Ørsted.
