Isomorphism, electromagnetism, thermoelectricity, and Ohm's Law were also developed.Ohm's Law is used to calculate current, voltage, and resistance. Ohm’s law was a crucial discovery because it led to people being able understand and harness the power of electricity. Michael Faraday had success in liquefying chlorine. Firearms started to see an advancement due to science, for example: the most common firearm was the flintlock which was invented by Marin le Bourgeoys which upgraded from a design that was based on one used for over 200 years. Advances In Lighting -Gas lights were being developed. They did not become popular until the 1860s when they were installed in the Houses of Parliament. -The gas mantle was then invented in 1885.
