A Scottish mathematician and physicist, James Clerk Maxwell (13 June, 1831–5 November, 1879) is well known for inventing the Electromagnetic theory. He went to the Edinburg University where he discovered Photoelasticty before moving to the University of Cambridge. There, he worked under William Hopkins who was a popular mathematician and geologist in that era. His contribution to science has been immense. The Maxwell-Boltzmann kinetic gas theory gave the basic laws for the thermodynamics. His investigations of colour analysis and colour photography, which was presented in 1861 lecture in The Royal Institute, won him the Rumford Medal.
The year of 1855 saw him commentating on Electromagnetism. It was in his book in 1873 named 'A treatise on Electricity and Magnetism' in which Maxwell's equations appeared, which further set up the advance research on the speed of light. His great accomplishments in Physics and the precise use of dimensional analysis made him the first ever Cavendish Professor of Physics at the Cambridge. Maxwell was an intellectual human being who wrote poems, which is evident in his biography-'The Life of James Clerk Maxwell'.
