Examples

  • For the purpose of avoiding periphrasis, I propose to call this action of the current from the voltaic battery, _volta-electric induction_.

  • The first is the case of volta-electric excitation, the other ordinary chemical affinity: but both are chemical actions and due to one force or principle.

  • On combining a piece of litmus with a piece of turmeric paper, wetting both with solution of sulphate of soda, and putting the paper on the glass, so that _p_ was on the litmus and _n_ on the turmeric, a very few turns of the machine sufficed to show the evolution of acid at the former and alkali at the latter, exactly in the manner effected by a volta-electric current.

  • Another arrangement was then employed connecting the former experiments on volta-electric induction (6-26.) with the present.

  • The similarity of action, almost amounting to identity, between common magnets and either electro-magnets or volta-electric currents, is strikingly in accordance with and confirmatory of M. Ampère's theory, and furnishes powerful reasons for believing that the action is the same in both cases; but, as a distinction in language is still necessary, I propose to call the agency thus exerted by ordinary magnets, _magneto-electric_ or

  • Water was decomposed by it, and the oxygen and hydrogen obtained in separate tubes according to the law governing volta-electric and machine-electric decomposition.

  • Whilst the wire is subject to either volta-electric or magneto-electric induction, it appears to be in a peculiar state; for it resists the formation of an electrical current in it, whereas, if in its common condition, such a current would be produced; and when left uninfluenced it has the power of originating a current, a power which the wire does not possess under common circumstances.

  • The _difference_ of time between volta-electric and magneto-electric induction, rendered evident by the galvanometer (59.), may probably be thus explained.

  • This is perfectly in harmony with the results relative to volta-electric and magneto-electric induction described in this paper.

    Experimental Researches in Electricity, Volume 1

  • The only difference which powerfully strikes the attention as existing between volta-electric and magneto-electric induction, is the suddenness of the former, and the sensible time required by the latter; but even in this early state of investigation there are circumstances which seem to indicate, that upon further inquiry this difference will, as a philosophical distinction, disappear (68).
