Benjamin Franklin Experiments and Observations on Electricity 4th Edition

Aside from serving as President of Pennsylvania and signing the Declaration of Independence, Benjamin Franklin was also a writer who made contributions to science. Franklin conducted his own experiments on electricity and learned that lightning and electricity were the same thing. A collection of Franklin’s letters regarding his discoveries on electricity were compiled into the 1751 book Experiments and Observations on Electricity. He was awarded the Copley Medal by the Royal Society for his findings described in the book.
