- n. the quantity of electric charge that, passed though an ionic solution, will cause electrolysis of one equivalent of ions; it is equal to about 96,490 coulombs. The number of univalent metal ions (such as silver in a silver nitrate solution) which would be deposited as free metal by such a current is Avogadro's number, 6.023 x 1023.

- n. the English physicist and chemist who discovered electromagnetic induction (1791-1867)
Another achievement that gives Faraday scientific recognition is that he is the only scientist who has two internationally used units of measurement named after him, the faraday, which is a unit of electrical quantity, and the farad, which is a unit of capacitance.
Other units include the "faraday" and the "henry", so you'll understand this is an honor given to few.
Working from insulated buckets or helicopters to avoid any risk of ground contact and wearing faraday suits—actual metal clothing—the linemen connected themselves directly to the high-voltage wire itself.
Hey a girl can hope faraday (11/4/2008 2: 17: 53 AM)
I'm a fan of this user permalink i'm so over faraday - at least the actor - he whispers everthing - i don't know why other characters aren't going "what?" all the time. last night when he told richard he loved the redhead (who i've never liked) - she was supposed to have heard what he said.
I think that all theaters should have a copper mesh faraday cage built into the walls around them.
You'll never believe this, but it was the first attempt to form a uniform event horizon contained in a faraday collar. they peed on themselves and shut it down .
Assuming they did what faraday suggested I figure there are 2 good possible reasons why they showed it to us.
I'd be interested to see if faraday "bucks" time and shoots at the bomb anyways.
