Transcript of Science In The Early 1800's

Science Of The Early 1800's
Technology in the 1800s
The Influence of Early Alchemists on Victor Frankenstein
Spontaneous Generation
Galvani's Experiment
-Through use of electricity, dead animal parts were supposed to be able to move(or brought back to life)
-Galvani created this theory after finding that a frogs muscles had contracted when the steel scalpel and brass hook came in contact

Frankenstein's monster
-electricity contributed

Inventions/advances in technology
- Alessandro Volta
- D. F. Arago
- Michael Faraday

Those were tools that made up machines

Early Theories
Dalton's Atomic Theory-1805
This theory suggests that atoms of different elements could be separated by their mass.

Some of the main points of theory include:
All matter is composed of atoms
Atoms cannot be made or destroyed
Chemical reactions occur when atoms are rearranged
His studies were on outdated alchemists
The studies of these alchemists are now considered "old science"
Known as "Witchcraft" in the 1800's
Most of these studies have been proven false
His studies are inspired by:
Cornelius Agrippa
Albertus Magnus
-Wasn't an idea with high priority
-Thought that it was possible to give life to dead things
-Was later proved to be a false thought (by Pasteur)

Science in relation to
Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley
Frankenstein: a Warning to Modern Science
The theory was not completely correct. For instance, Dalton measured oxygen as having an atomic weight of 7 instead, it was actually 8. Also, it was proven that atoms could be destroyed through nuclear reactions.
Darwin’s Theory of Evolution
The theory was first introduced by Jean Lamarck
He believed that salamander's lost their legs because they were never used
His theory was disapproved, due to lack of evidence
Charles Darwin was later introduced as someone who was passionate about discovering life forms
He then boarded the the ship HMS Beagle to collect and observe specimens
He discovered thousands of different kinds of specimens above and below sea level

From his discoveries Darwin concluded that all life is connected and has descended from a common ancestor
