  • It is not our purpose to deal with the electro-kinetic form of energy referred to by Maxwell in this chapter.

    Aether and Gravitation

  • We are, however, only dealing at this point with the electro-static energy in the electric field, as we shall deal with the electro-kinetic energy in the following chapter.

    Aether and Gravitation

  • Electricity_, where, in the quotation already given in Art. 79, he states them to be electro-static and electro-kinetic energy, while in paragraph 792 of the same work he adds: "The intrinsic energy of the medium is half electro-static and half electro-kinetic, that is, half is due to electricity and half is due to magnetism."

    Aether and Gravitation

  • Maxwell distinctly states on this point, "that the combined effect of the electro-static and electro-kinetic stresses is a pressure equal to 2 P. in the direction of the propagation of the waves," that is, away from the electrified or charged body.

    Aether and Gravitation

  • Her stage setup was a melange of homebrew electromechanical devices; a wavering turntable, a collection of flapping electro-kinetic sculptures on automotive jackstands, a Frankensteinian tableau of electronics, and Melissa sprawled on the floor in the center of it all.


  • Manufacturers Highway Energy Systems say their "electro-kinetic road ramp" it is a potentially massive source of green power.


  • Cohen's control over the movement of the particles using this real-time electro-kinetic feedback is so precise, he even managed to make a movie showing particles in an ABEL trap "subject to an arbitrary waveform": i.e., the eminently danceable "I Like to Move It, Move It" song from the animated film

  • In Art. 782 he writes: "In the theory of electricity and magnetism adopted in this treatise two forms of energy are recognized -- the electro-static and the electro-kinetic -- and these are supposed to have their seat, not merely in the electrified or magnetized bodies, but in every part of the surrounding space where electric or magnetic force is observed to act.
