History

James Prescott Joule was born on December 24, 1818 in Salford, England. He was a physicist who established that the various forms of energy – mechanical, electrical, and heat – are basically the same and can be changed, one into another. Thus he formed the basis of the law of conservation of energy and the first law of thermodynamics. He died on October 11, 1889 in Sale, England.
