Michael Faraday’s induction ring, used in experiments that led to the discovery of electromagnetic induction on August 29th, 1831. Faraday wrapped two wires around opposite sides of an iron ring, inserting one into a galvanometer and the other into a battery. He observed “waves of electricity” resulting from the change in magnetic flux.
