Physics ERT: Electro Magnetism
Introduction

The purpose of this report is to outline the background and personal information regarding Ernest Orlando Lawrence and Andre-Marie Ampere. Accurate details of experimental procedures and results obtained by these Physicists will be discussed and analysed. Lawrence’s Cyclotron and his influence on high energy physics and Ampere’s contributions to the field of electrodynamics will be deliberated along with a reasoned decision as to which scientist made the greater contribution to Science (ERT, 2012).
