That great separation of positive and negative electricity sometimes takes place during rainfall is undoubted, and the charge brought to the ground seems preponderatingly negative.
When did the electricity come on?
There was no electricity in this part of the state, and looters would've likely taken everything.
Her gaze settled on the lights, and she wondered how the elderly woman had electricity when no one else did.
Yeah, but let's take care of the electricity first.
The streets are narrow, but are clean and well-paved, and are lighted by electricity and gas.
Lamplighters used to light street lamps every night, before the accursed electricity came along.
His work was mainly concerned with electricity and magnetism, though he also made some contributions to optics and physiology.
Attempts have been made to apply electricity to agriculture on a commercial scale, but the exact measure of success attained remains somewhat doubtful.
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.
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.
Electricity as a motive power for cranes is of more recent introduction.
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.
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.
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.
The unit to which they are ordinarily referred is I electrostatic unit of electricity per cubic metre of air.
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.
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.
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.
Electricity (hmm, I guess the trailer was solar powered), a refrigerator, air conditioning.
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.
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.
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.
The train lurched forward, the gentle hum of electricity soon pushing her into a near-doze, until the train lurched to a halt.
Magic jolted through him like electricity, flinging him onto his back.
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.
