Faraday's Law of Magnetic Induction has a special role in fundamental, theoretical physics. This is the law that predicts electricity from magnetism, the law that describes time and process rates, and the law that governs electric motors and most of modern technology. Despite its great importance, fidelity to experimental data, and early quantitative treatment by Neumann1 in 1845, the law has continually been modified, reformulated, and ignored in favor of inferior hypotheses.
