9781330001240: What Is Electricity? (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from What Is Electricity? It's Nature Explained Bold as the title of this study may seem, we might satisfy ourselves with the truth that there exists practically no application of electricity, in which all factors cannot be predetermined by established formula. It is created to any extent, conducted, transformed, stored up and applied, and has become in a true sense of the word, a public utility. Could it reasonably be expected that the knowledge of its real nature should forever be kept from entering the human brain? Probably it could if a strict desire were entertained to be guided solely by a mass of circumstantial evidence, accepted generally as axioms and exalted to irreproachable electrical laws. In the attempt to dismantle it of its mystery, it was found necessary to ascertain to what extent its circuit is comparable to the flow of water. It was encountered in various conditions or states, either as flowing or held captive. Considered from a purely mechanical standpoint, it disclaims all superstition as to its production and has brought out the fact that all objects are possessed with it, consenting to an outward demonstration of its power upon its transformation, or, more correctly, its separation.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from What Is Electricity? I am often asked the question, What is electricity? and I have endeavoured in this book to give in a popular manner the present views of scientific men in regard to this question. According to modern ideas, the continuance of all life on the earth is due to the electrical energy which we receive from the sun; and physics, in general, can be defined as that subject which treats of the transformations of energy. I have therefore presented the varied phenomena of electricity in such a manner that the reader can perceive the physicist s reasons for supposing that all space is filled with a medium which transmits electro-magnetic waves to us from the sun.
