He broke in and checked the electricity, which someone had left on.
A bent spring possesses energy, for it is capable of doing work in returning to its natural form; a charge of gunpowder possesses energy, for it is capable of doingwork in exploding; aLeyden jar charged with electricity possesses energy, for it is capable of doing work in being discharged.
Her breath caught at the cool electricity that ran through her.
The word is still sometimes employed in this sense, as of the ship's telegraph, by means of which orders are mechanically transmitted from the navigating bridge to the engine room, but when used without qualification it usually denotes telegraphic apparatus worked by electricity, whether the signals that express the words of the message are visual, auditory or written.
Later, while attempting to utilize the gas for the production of electricity by means of a Grove gas battery, he noticed that the carbon monoxide contained in it combined with nickel.
It was suggested again and again as each new discovery in electricity and magnetism seemed to render it more feasible.
Faraday's term " electrode," literally " a way (650s) for electricity to travel along," might be well applied to designate the insulated conductor along which the electric messenger is despatched.
A battery with a sufficient number of cells is connected to these two electrodes so as to pass a current through the mercury vapour, negative electricity proceeding from the mercury cathode to the iron anode.
Lamplighters used to light street lamps every night, before the accursed electricity came along.
The only difference was the electricity powering lights in the heavy iron and wood chandeliers overhead and the intercom system installed into the walls beside each entrance.
Something warm touched her back, and a jolt of hot electricity made her sit upright.
She felt two tiny bites on her arm, and suddenly electricity flew through her.
She stepped back, trying to take the electricity out of the air with a little humor.
More of the warm electricity flowed into her.
The hallway was so charged with emotional electricity that even the young mother noticed.
His work was mainly concerned with electricity and magnetism, though he also made some contributions to optics and physiology.
The unit to which they are ordinarily referred is I electrostatic unit of electricity per cubic metre of air.
Attempts have been made to apply electricity to agriculture on a commercial scale, but the exact measure of success attained remains somewhat doubtful.
Lemstrbm believed atmospheric electricity to play an important part in the natural growth of vegetation, and he assigned a special role to the needles of fir and pine trees.
In 1868 he obtained the same professorship at Edinburgh University, and in 1873 he published a textbook of Magnetism and Electricity, full of original work.
The streets are narrow, but are clean and well-paved, and are lighted by electricity and gas.
There he continued his researches on the discharge of electricity in rarefied gases, only just missing the discovery of the X-rays described by W.
- Although the history of practical electric telegraphy does not date much further back than the middle of the, 9th century, the idea of using electricity for telegraphic purposes is much older.
In the future, we will paint surfaces with substances full of nanites that will absorb sunlight and turn it into electricity, transforming any object we paint into a clean energy creator.
Electricity (hmm, I guess the trailer was solar powered), a refrigerator, air conditioning.
But if you could trust him this way and there was no electricity, would it still be love?
She paused, the unfamiliar sensation a combination of adrenaline that made her blood quicken and electricity that made her skin tingle.
Their faces were inches away, his fingers tracing a line of warm electricity down her jaw.
She let herself stay where she was, intrigued by the electricity and calmed by the heat of his body.
The train lurched forward, the gentle hum of electricity soon pushing her into a near-doze, until the train lurched to a halt.
She couldn't help but feel surprised by the kindness and careful planning of the refugees who'd lost everything but electricity in one building.
Magic jolted through him like electricity, flinging him onto his back.
Yes, the first time they met, there had been electricity between them.
Even now, as they made love, the electricity was there.
The night air was so charged with electricity, that she could feel the hair rising on the back of her neck.
Whilst no small amount of observational work has been done in these new branches of atmospheric electricity, the science has still not developed to a considerable extent beyond preliminary stages.
Natural gas, piped from the Kansas fields, is used for light and power, and electricity for commercial lighting and power is derived from plants on Spring River, near Vark, Kansas, and on Shoal creek.
Hertz himself gave an admirable account of the significance of his discoveries in a lecture on the relations between light and electricity, delivered before the German Society for the Advancement of Natural Science and Medicine at Heidelberg in September 1889.
For overhead travellers in workshops, and for most of the cranes which fall into our second class, electricity as a motive power has already displaced nearly every other method.
This condenser is charged electrically and then suddenly discharged and violent electrical oscillations are set up in it, that is to say, electricity rushes to and fro between the antenna and the earth.
Fleming discovered that if the filament is made incandescent by the current from an insulated battery there is a unilateral conductivity of the rarefied gas between the hot filament and the metal plate, such that if the negative terminal of the filament is connected outside the lamp through a coil in which electric oscillations are created with the platinum plate, only one half of the oscillations are permitted to pass, viz., those which carry negative electricity from the hot filament to the cooled plate through the vacuous space.
Electricity produces heat, heat produces electricity.
And as the undefinable essence of the force moving the heavenly bodies, the undefinable essence of the forces of heat and electricity, or of chemical affinity, or of the vital force, forms the content of astronomy, physics, chemistry, botany, zoology, and so on, just in the same way does the force of free will form the content of history.
He does something weird with computers, electricity and maybe death rays.
Electricity whipped through her.
Electricity as a motive power for cranes is of more recent introduction.
Plus, they will be able to convert heat to electricity as well, so anything that heats up will become an energy source.
Good, the electricity was on.
Now, we know that the number of electrochemical equivalents electrolysed is proportional to the whole amount of electricity which passed through the circuit, and the product of this by the electromotive force of the battery is the work done by the latter, so that in this case also Joule showed that the heat generated was proportional to the work done.
