We have been looking at electrical power this week.  The man I mentioned in class today is James Watt.  Here is a short biography by the BBC.  I also spoke about how he calculated the power output of working horses and compared them to his steam machines.  You can read more about his horsepower experiments here.
I’d say he’s a pretty famous scientist – not many people get their name on every lightbulb in the world!  😉
