Benjamin Franklin left an important legacy in electrical science and its useful application to mankind. The experiments published in “Experiments and Observations on Electricity Made at Philadelphia in America” proved the existence of positive and negative charges as well as the concepts of insulators and work led to the invention of the lightning rod which saved buildings.   The history of the medical use of electricity goes back more than years. In AD 46, the Roman physician, Scribonius Largus wrote his Compositiones Medicae, recommending patients stand on a live black torpedo fish to relieve gout and other pain. To do this they waded out into shallow water in the ocean and stood on the fish (presumably against its will).

Lay the book on a glass or wax; and on the other end of the gold lines, set the bottle electrised: then bend the springing wire, by pressing it with a stick of wax till its ring approaches the ring of the bottle wire; instantly there is a strong spark and stroke, and the whole line of gold, which. Bioelectricity, electric potentials and currents produced by or occurring within living organisms. Bioelectric potentials are generated by a variety of biological processes and generally range in strength from one to a few hundred millivolts. In the electric eel, however, currents of one ampere at.

Experiments and Observations on Electricity is a mid-eighteenth century book consisting of letters from Benjamin Franklin.

These letters concerned Franklin's discoveries about the behavior of electricity based on experimentation and scientific studies. The book came in pamphlet form for the first three English. This movement valued reason and observation as the means to knowledge and improved social organization.

An Enlightenment temperament, such as that shown by Franklin, had a high regard for rationality, valued self-discipline and social consciousness, and desired to generate progress by increase of learning.

Later observations proved that this attraction was due to an imbalance of electric charges, which is called static electricity. Archeologists have also discovered evidence that ancient people may have experimented with electricity.
