Chemical effect of electric current of Class 8

About Chemical effect of electric current 

Oersted was born to Søren Christian Oersted, an apothecary, and Karen Hermansen. He was born in the small town of Langeland, Denmark, August 14, 1777. While he was a young boy, Oersted's parents put him and his younger brother in the care of a German wigmaker and his wife.

Oersted had studied Naturphilosophie under Schelling himself, and wholeheartedly adopted the view that nature is systematic and unified. (He also thought that the practice of science is a religion.) The fact that he should be seeking a connection between electricity and magnetism was motivated entirely because of his prior philosophical conviction that one must exist. After all, only someone looking to find a connection between electricity and magnetism would consider placing a compass, only affected by magnetic fields, near a current carrying wire, thought to be a purely electrical phenomenon, in the first place.

Oersted's experiment showed that there were underlying connections between what appeared to be quite different physical phenomena, and encouraged other scientists to seek them out. While universal convertibility is not the same as conservation, the two are nonetheless closely related. Thus, a connection or conversion between different phenomena, especially two as outwardly dissimilar as electricity and magnetism, was step towards a unified concept of energy.
