  • Notes on resistance of gas-pipe grounds

    Publication Year: 1908, Page(s):281 - 288
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1543 KB)

    Earth connections in electric circuits are frequently made by driving a gas pipe into the ground. Such grounds are of fairly high resistance, and therefore not permissible where a low resistance ground is required. Their great simplicity and cheapness makes them desirable, where very low ground resistance is not necessary, as for discharging static charges, earthing overhead ground-wires, etc. To ...

  • Primary standard of light

    Light is not a physical quantity, but a physiological effect, that of certain wave-lengths of radiation, and therefore can not be expressed in absolute physical units; it must be measured by comparison with an arbitrarily chosen standard of physiological effect. As a result thereof, even with the best existing primary standard of light, the amylacetate lamp, the difficulties of reproduction, and m... View full abstract»

  • Notes on electric haulage of Canal boats

    Publication Year: 1908, Page(s):303 - 337
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2713 KB)

    The following notes are based upon the results of tests conducted by the authors during the autumn months of 1907 on a section of the Lehigh Canal near Mauch Chunk, Pennsylvania. The object of the tests was to determine: a. Pull required to propel canal boats at various speeds and with varying numbers of boats in tow. b. The relative merits, for the purpose contemplated, of locomotives supplied by... View full abstract»

  • An imperfection in the usual statement of the fundamental law of electromagnetic induction

    Publication Year: 1908, Page(s):339 - 349
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1146 KB)

    The fundamental law of electromagnetic induction, which is the basis of all our present mechanical generators of electric currents, is, in general, stated in two different ways. Faraday's statement is to the effect that if a conductor cuts magnetic lines of force, an electromotive force is generated. This simple statement, however, has been changed by later authorities, who define the same law by ... View full abstract»
