Answer Alexander Graham Bell He was deaf. ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL WAS NOT DEAF!!! His mother and his wife Mabel Hubbard were, But Alexander Graham Bell was not! His motive for even starting to experiment with hearing was to learn more about the deafness.
good answer he had 4 children. 2 boys 2 girls. his two boys died while in infancy.
if u mean what did he solve, he made the very first working phone ever!
Alexander Grahm bell inspires me because he belived in communication. He always wanted to improve the way people communicate he improved the multiple telegraph and invented the telephone. if it wasnt for him we probably wouldn't have cell phones. so thank him for everything he has done for us.
I believe you are asking what did Alexander Graham Bell invent. Bell made several inventions but the one he is most famous for is the telephone (hence Bell telephone company). Bell also invented many other devices. Some of them include the telegraph a metal jacket to assist in breathing the phonog…raph the audiometer to detect minor hearing problems and a device to locate icebergs. (MORE)
He made the telephone. Also, he was one of the best scientists inthe world. He also studied sound and made many theories regardingspeech and phonetics. He patented the telephone in 1876. Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) was a Scottish teacher for thedeaf, and both his mother and wife were deaf. He… had an earlyinterest in mechanical hearing devices. The deaths of his twobrothers in 1867 and 1870 from tuberculosis led his family toemigrate to Canada, and he eventually established a school andlaboratory in Boston, MA. Here he conducted the experiments onspeech modulation of electrical current that led to the inventionof the telephone. (MORE)
In 1876, at the age of 29, Alexander Graham Bell invented his telephone . In 1877, he formed the Bell Telephone Company, and in the same year married Mabel Hubbard and embarked on a yearlong honeymoon in Europe.. Alexander Graham Bell might easily have been content with the success of his telephon…e invention. His many laboratory notebooks demonstrate, however, that he was driven by a genuine and rare intellectual curiosity that kept him regularly searching, striving, and wanting always to learn and to create. He would continue to test out new ideas through a long and productive life. He would explore the realm of communications as well as engage in a great variety of scientific activities involving kites, airplanes, tetrahedral structures, sheep-breeding, artificial respiration, desalinization and water distillation, and hydrofoils.. With the enormous technical and later financial success of his telephone invention, Alexander Graham Bell's future was secure, and he was able to arrange his life so that he could devote himself to his scientific interests. Toward this end, in 1881, he used the $10,000 award for winning France's Volta Prize to set up the Volta Laboratory in Washington, D.C. A believer in scientific teamwork, Bell worked with two associates, his cousin Chichester Bell and Charles Sumner Tainter, at the Volta Laboratory. Their experiments soon produced such major improvements in Thomas Edison's phonograph that it became commercially viable. After 1885, when he first visited Nova Scotia, Bell set up another laboratory there at his estate, Beinn Bhreagh (pronounced Ben Vreeah), near Baddeck, where he would assemble other teams of bright young engineers to pursue new and exciting ideas.. Among one of his first innovations after the telephone was the " photophone ," a device that enabled sound to be transmitted on a beam of light. Bell and his assistant, Charles Sumner Tainter, developed the photophone using a sensitive selenium crystal and a mirror that would vibrate in response to a sound. In 1881, they successfully sent a photophone message over 200 yards from one building to another. Bell regarded the photophone as "the greatest invention I have ever made; greater than the telephone." Alexander Graham Bell's invention reveals the principle upon which today's laser and fiber optic communication systems are founded, though it would take the development of several modern technologies to realize it fully.. Alexander Graham Bell Sketch of a vacuum jacket in use. . Over the years, Alexander Graham Bell's curiosity would lead him to speculate on the nature of heredity, first among the deaf and later with sheep born with genetic irregularities. His sheep-breeding experiments at Beinn Bhreagh sought to increase the numbers of twin and triplet births. Bell was also willing to attempt inventing under the pressure of daily events, and in 1881 he hastily constructed an electromagnetic device called an induction balance to try and locate a bullet lodged in President Garfield after an assassin had shot him. He later improved this and produced a device called a telephone probe, which would make a telephone receiver click when it touched metal. That same year, Bell's newborn son, Edward, died from respiratory problems, and Bell responded to that tragedy by designing a metal vacuum jacket that would facilitate breathing. This apparatus was a forerunner of the iron lung used in the 1950s to aid polio victims. In addition to inventing the audiometer to detect minor hearing problems and conducting experiments with what today are called energy recycling and alternative fuels, Bell also worked on methods of removing salt from seawater. . Photograph of the Silver Dart . However, these interests may be considered minor activities compared to the time and effort he put into the challenge of flight. By the 1890s, Bell had begun experimenting with propellers and kites. His work led him to apply the concept of the tetrahedron (a solid figure with four triangular faces) to kite design as well as to create a new form of architecture. In 1907, four years after the Wright Brothers first flew at Kitty Hawk, Bell formed the Aerial Experiment Association with Glenn Curtiss, William "Casey" Baldwin, Thomas Selfridge, and J.A.D. McCurdy, four young engineers whose common goal was to create airborne vehicles. By 1909, the group had produced four powered aircraft, the best of which, the Silver Dart, made the first successful powered flight in Canada on February 23, 1909. Bell spent the last decade of his life improving hydrofoil designs, and in 1919 he and Casey Baldwin built a hydrofoil that set a world water-speed record that was not broken until 1963. Months before he died, Bell told a reporter, "There cannot be mental atrophy in any person who continues to observe, to remember what he observes, and to seek answers for his unceasing hows and whys about things. Alexander Graham Bell - Quote "Leave the beaten track occasionally and dive into the woods. Every time you do so you will be certain to find something that you have never seen before. Follow it up, explore all around it, and before you know it, you will have something worth thinking about to occupy your mind. All really big discoveries are the results of thought.".

Alexander Graham Bell was home schooled by his father, he later went on to Royal High School and then University of Edingburgh. He invented the telephone in 1876.
Alexander Graham Bell invented many things, the most famous is the telephone, except he didn't invent the 'phone. The telephone was invented by an Italian called Innocenzo Manzetti, Bell just gets the credit. Bell did invent the metal detector. US president James Garfield was shot by an assassin,… and Bell built an instrument to find the bullet. It worked perfectly, but couldn't find te bullet because the dying president was lying on a bed with metal bedsprings. So Bell invented many things that he isn't known for, and didn't invent the telephone that he is known for. (MORE)
Alexander Graham Bell became famous almost immediately after he patented the first working telephone in 1876. From that time on, he was always receiving honors from the public until his death on August 2, 1922. Of course, he is still famous.
He was a scottish born inventor but i don't know if he ever became a Canadian or not
Alexander Braham Bell is famous because he invented the telephoneand brought it to commercial and wide-spread success.
Alexander Graham Bell's parents were Alexander Melville Bell andEliza Grace Symonds. They were both born in Edinburgh, Scotland, aswas Alexander Graham Bell himself.
Graham Alexander's Job is mostly involved in the human voice and electricity. Which soon came about the telephone. His job was to answer the question how can I transmit sound from one place to another? But other then his professional job, he was a "pupil-teacher in elocution of music" which he had a…s a preoccupation. He chose this as his preoccupation when he found out that his mother was deaf. Which then he devoted his whole life into acoustics. This are mostly his jobs in life, well there is being a father too :) (MORE)
Alexander Graham Bell worked with Thomas Watson on the telephone. The telephone was Alexander Graham Bell's idea.
A famous Scottish inventor of the late 19th and early 20t centuries, he came up with the telephone as a teacher of the deaf. He also invented the multiple telegraph, the first wax recording cylinder (which led to thephonograph) and the hydrodome, a hydrofoil, among other inventions. He also made a l…ot of money. His telephone invention led to his forming Bell Telephone Company and later American Telephone & Telegraph (AT&T). (MORE)
Yes, by birth, but not by practice. Alexander Graham Bell was by most accounts a non-practicing Protestant; given his Scottish ancestry, it would be reasonable to assume he was exposed to the views of Presbyterianism, the Church of Scotland, or perhaps Anglicanism, the Church of England. But during …his life, his views seemed to align with those of the Unitarian Church, a liberal denomination of Protestantism. (MORE)
Alexander Graham Bell ( March 3, 1847 -- August 2, 1922 ) was an eminent scientist,inventor, engineer and innovator who is credited with inventing the first practical telephone. Bell's father, grandfather, and brother had all been associated with work on elocution andspeech, and both his mother an…d wife were deaf, profoundly influencing Bell's life's work.His research on hearing and speech further led him to experiment with hearing devices which eventually culminated in Bell being awarded the first U.S. patent for the telephone in 1876 .[N 1] In retrospect, Bell considered his most famous invention an intrusion on his real work as a scientist and refused to have a telephone in his study.

Alexander Graham Bell's wife was called: MABEL GARDINER HUBBARD. She was married to Bell from 1877 to his death, in 1922. She died the following year (1923).
Yes. He emigrated from Scotland to Canada in 1870, when he was 23.Two years later, in 1872, he opened a school for the deaf in Bostonand in 1873 began teaching at Boston University. He became a UScitizen in 1915 when he was 68 years old.
The impact today is that with the telephone now we can call if there is an emergency or if you just want to hear someones voice. What Alexander Graham Bell invented was indeed the perfect invention.
Alexander Graham Bell is no thief to Elisha Gray's similar experiment. For all we know Gray was the one who tried to steal Bell's idea. Bell is the one credited with the invention of the phone and that is all that maters.
Yes Alexander Graham Bell was famous, because in 1876, at the age of 29 Mr. Graham Bell invented his telephone. In 1877, he formed the Bell Telephone Company. Hope that helps. (:
He enjoyed science. While working with deaf people, he invented the phonograph and then later the telephone with morse code calls.
he wouldn't to be abale to talked with ever person and to help the deaf
He invented the Telephone, the Hydrofoil, the metal detector, and would somone please put something on this website that says what year he made the dehusking machine.well that was kind of stupid
33 explorers and scientists started the National Geographic Society. Gardiner Greene Hubbard was its first president. Alexander Graham Bell was his son-in-law and he succeeded him in 1897.
He married Mabel Hubbard and had two sons, Edward and Robert, who died in infancy and two daughters, Elsie May and Marian (they called her Daisy).
No, he was born in Scotland. You see, Bell's family immigrated to Canada and lived in Canada before the Canadian Citizenship Act was passed. It wasn't possible to become a Canadian Citizen until 1947 (over 20 years after Bell's death). He would have been classified as a British subject and cit…izen, as Canada was still part of the British Empire. He has since been classified as an honorary Canadian , because many of his ideas and experiments originated in Canada, not to mention his family. During the final 30 years of his life, he spent lots more time in his summer house in Nova Scotia. This is the last place he lived. He both died and chose to be buried in Canada, but not in that order. (MORE)
He is remebered because of numerous things. For instance, He is remembered for being elected first president of the National Geographic Society, Being part of the group that devised a kite capable of carrying aperson, Inventing the photophon (a device that transmits speech by light rays), forming th…e Bell telephone company to operate local telephne exchange operations, developing the "Hydrodrome" (a boat that goes up to 70 mph and which was the fastest boat in the world for many years), founding a school for deaf mutes in Boston, Massechusetts, and, of course inventing the telephone. Is that enough for you? (MORE)
Bell studied hearing and speech, due to his wife and mother both being deaf. This study eventually led to his invention of the telephone in 1876.
yes he was smart (he also worked / was with hellen Keller most of the time)
Alexander Graham Bell was famous in his time, and still today, for his invention of the telephone. He also founded the Bell Telephone Company, which later became known as the current company AT&T.
Alexander Graham Bell the inventor was not Deaf but created inventions that helped Deaf people.
He was taught by his father instead of going into Primary school to get taught.
Alexander Graham Bell was the first person to invent a "telephone", converting sound into an analog electrical signal, transmitting it along a conductive wire, and then recreating the original sound in a speaker.
Alexander is a awesome scientist who created something that would help me talk in Minnesota and communicate with someone in Nigeria. With the help of his telephone I can feel like I'm in Nigeria talking with someone face to face without seeing them and the awesome, totally awesome, engineer.
yes and no. he was born in an European country he has a Canadian citizen ship
He created a deaf communication that if you out your head next to a deaf person' forehead, you could understand what they're trying to say. He also dropped out of high school to study science in London with his grandfather. He also studied about the sound waves all around you.
While working on the telephone, Bell spilled some battery acid on himself. In a panic, he called for his assistant. The assistant heard Bell's voice coming through the telephone. His invention was a success!
Because he was a n***a from paris, and had a lot of sex with the ladies.
Because he wanted to be able to expand communication. And was able to do that by creating the phone to make long distance calls. So communication was easier
He married one of his students named Mabel Hubbard. They had 4 kids, 2 boys and 2 girls. There sons died at young ages so they just had the girls left.
bell's father,grandfather and brother had all been associated with work on elocution and speech,and both his mother and wife were deaf,profoundly influensing bell's life's work
