    Idea Cool and Insane

  • There was absolute cessation of all natural respiratory efforts, complete unconsciousness, total abolition of reflex action and motion, and galvanism with the ordinary magneto-electric machine failed to induce muscular contractions.

  • As soon as the magneto-electric machine attained a size in the hands of experimenters that took it out of the field of scientific toys it began to be what we now know as a dynamo.

  • This hypothesis seems to us the more plausible in that Mr.J. Van Malderem has demonstrated that the attraction of solenoids with the currents, not straight, of magneto-electric machines is almost as great as that of the same solenoids with straight currents; and it is very likely that the difference which may then exist should be so much the less in proportion as the induced currents have more tension.

  • These considerations relative to the direction and intensity of the magnetic field are of the highest importance for the physical theory of magneto-electric machines.

  • In 1831 he made the discovery he had been leading to for many years -- that of magneto-electric induction.

    Steam, Steel and Electricity

  • Pacinotti, of Florence, constructed a magneto-electric machine in which the current flows always in one direction without a commutator.

  • They knew then, about 1835 to 1870, of the laws of induction as applied to the electro-magnet, or in small machines the generating power, so called, of the magneto-electric arrangement embodied, as a familiar example, in
