About Félix Savart

  • Félix Savart (; French: [sava?]; 30 June 1791, Mézières – 16 March 1841, Paris) was a physicist, mathematician who is primarily known for the Biot–Savart law of electromagnetism, which he discovered together with his colleague Jean-Baptiste Biot.
  • His main interest was in acoustics and the study of vibrating bodies.
  • A particular interest in the violin led him to create an experimental trapezoidal model.
  • He gave his name to the savart, a unit of measurement for musical intervals, and to Savart's wheel—a device he used while investigating the range of human hearing.
