  1. James Clerk Maxwell By: Cassandra Bautista And Jesus Pecero

  2. History of Scientist. • On June 13, 1831, James Clerk Maxwell was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. With the exception of an older sister that died at a young age, he was an only child. • His father, John, was a lawyer who was in his forties by the time James was born. • James was raised by his father and his aunt after his mother’s passing.

  3. Why is he important to Science • James Clerk Maxwell was one of the world’s greatest physicists… his equations paved the way to a much deeper understanding of optics, the science of light.

  4. How is their contribution to Science • They extend over a wide variety of fields, including optics, color vision, elasticity, and the behavior of the dynamical top. • Maxwell was also the first person to apply the methods of probability to the analysis of the properties of gases. • Maxwell founded and built the Cavendish Laboratory of experimental physics at Cambridge University, which was to be arguably the most prolific physics department for at least the next fifty years.
