That property of any matter which, after a stress, will cause the substance to return to its original form or condition. Electricity has elasticity, which is utilized in condensers, as an instance.
Electricity with a low potentiality and large current density.
The process of imparting a charge of electricity to any body.
The terminals of a battery, or of any circuit; as, for instance, an arc light.
Any material which is capable of being decomposed by an electric current.
Magnetism which is created by an electric current.
An instrument for measuring static electricity, differing from a galvanometer, which measures a current in a wire that acts on the magnetic needle of the galvanometer.
(E. M. F.) Voltage, which is the measure or unit of e. m. f.
A device for indicating not only the presence of electricity, but whether it is positive or negative.
Surfaces separated by a dielectric for opposite charging of the surface.
In electricity a form of matter, as, for instance, gold, or silver, that has no other matter or compound. Original elements cannot be separated, because they are not made up of two or more elements, like brass, for instance.
A storage battery charged at too high a rate.
A storage battery discharged at too high a rate.
Charging for too long a time.
A generator, either a dynamo or a battery, for exciting the field of a dynamo.
An excessive over-discharge of an accumulator.
The sign used to indicate the heat term Fahrenheit.
The difference between the initial and the final voltage in a current.
The space or region near a magnet or charged wire. Also the electro-magnets in a dynamo or motor.
The volume of a current going through a conductor.
The pull developed by an electro-magnet.
A current produced by rubbing dissimilar substances together.
The greatest load a battery, accumulator or dynamo will sustain.
Pertaining to the electro-chemical relations of metals toward each other.
