Volta, Alessandro
Count Alessandro Giuseppe Antonio Anastasio Volta was an Italian physicist known especially for the invention of the battery in 1800. Volta also studied what we now call electrical capacitance, developing separate means to study both electrical potential (V) and charge (Q), and discovering that for a given object they are proportional. This may be called Volta's Law of capacitance, and likely for this work the unit of electrical potential has been named the Volt.

Watt, James
A Scottish inventor and mechanical engineer whose improvements to the Newcomen steam engine were fundamental to the changes brought by the Industrial Revolution in both his native Great Britain and the rest of the world.

Weber, Wilhelm Eduard
A German physicist and, together with Carl Friedrich Gauss, inventor of the first electromagnetic telegraph.

William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin
A mathematical physicist and engineer. At the University of Glasgow he did important work in the mathematical analysis of electricity and formulation of the first and second laws of thermodynamics, and did much to unify the emerging discipline of physics in its modern form.
