An Elementary Treatise on Electricity by James Clerk Maxwell

By James Clerk Maxwell

This ebook used to be initially released ahead of 1923, and represents a duplicate of an incredible historic paintings, conserving an identical structure because the unique paintings. whereas a few publishers have opted to follow OCR (optical personality attractiveness) know-how to the method, we think this results in sub-optimal effects (frequent typographical error, unusual characters and complicated formatting) and doesn't properly shield the ancient personality of the unique artifact. We think this paintings is culturally very important in its unique archival shape. whereas we attempt to competently fresh and digitally improve the unique paintings, there are sometimes cases the place imperfections equivalent to blurred or lacking pages, bad images or errant marks could have been brought because of both the standard of the unique paintings or the scanning approach itself. regardless of those occasional imperfections, we've introduced it again into print as a part of our ongoing worldwide booklet upkeep dedication, offering buyers with entry to the absolute best old reprints. We enjoy your realizing of those occasional imperfections, and clearly desire you get pleasure from seeing the ebook in a structure as shut as attainable to that meant by way of the unique writer.

The rod therefore must never be touched but must be by means of a handle of metal, or of wood covered with carried tinfoil, and before making any experiment the whole surface of the ebonite must be freed from electrification by passing it rapidly through a flame. The sockets by which the conductors are fastened to the ebonite rods, should not project outwards from the conductors, for the electricity not only accumulates on the projecting parts, but creeps over the surface of the ebonite, and remains there when the The sockets should electricity of the conductor is discharged.

If the disk is thick, or does not lie very close to the electrified surface, its charge, when removed, will be somewhat greater.
