Replace: In 1813, when Davy damaged his "eyesight in an accident with nitrogen trichloride", he decided to employ Faraday as an assistant. To: In 1813, when Davy damaged his "hand in a nitrogen trichloride explosion", he decided to employ Faraday as an assistant.

See citation 33 on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humphry_Davy Johntiancili (talk) 22:48, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Not done for now: While the Humphry Davy article does state Davy's injury was to his hand, the nitrogen trichloride article says it was Davy's sight and at least one source says it was a corneal injury. The quote form the source given in the Davy article ("My sight, however, I am informed, will not be injured") seems to confirm that there was at least a question of optical injury. Better sourcing to clarify the discrepancy is needed. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 18:05, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Perhaps a section about the friendship/professional relationship twixt Maxwell and Faraday?[edit]

I understand that Faraday lived long enough for Maxwell to show him that light was, as Faraday had suggested years before, electromagnetic waves. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.37.99.82 (talk) 17:58, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Faraday was in many ways influential in the works of James Clerk Maxwell as early as 1855 during his investigation of electricity and magnetism. Although their encounters at King's College, London, 1860–1865 were dully noted as regular during the lectures at the Royal Institution, the relationship was rather monotonous due to Michael Faraday's sign of senility and old age. Regardless of such Maxwell's respect for Faraday's idea reflected on his numerous publications which paved way for mathematical rigour in the fields of electrodynamics and vector calculus.

So, I request you to add the field of "Influenced - James Clerk Maxwell" as Faraday's early works were the inspiration for Maxwell's works on electromagnetism.

Thank you. RadeX-QuaNT MGNx0 (talk) 09:17, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

I don't understand what it means in his later life: "He had some years before turned down an offer of burial..." Can someone who understands clarify it in an edit? PennyJim1 (talk) 17:24, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

I had to google "interred." I feel it should link to the Wikipedia article on burial: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burial. PennyJim1 (talk) 17:24, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
