332. oldal - All the mixtures composed of gutta percha and other substances which had been subjected to experiment, except that containing plumbago, were found to increase its power of conducting heat ; but in its pure state gutta percha was an excellent non-conductor of electricity. The best composition for increasing the pliability of gutta percha was that formed in conjunction with caoutchouc tar, and next in order that of its own tar; and the best material at present known for moulding and embodying was obtained...
237. oldal - The one led me to see a system in every star. The other leads me to see a world in every atom. The one...
158. oldal - ... shuttle-driver, the thread which was carried in by the needle is surrounded by that received from the shuttle ; and as the needle is drawn out, it forces that which was received from the shuttle into the body of the cloth : and, as this operation is repeated, a seam is formed which has on each side of the cloth the same appearance as that given by stitching; with this peculiarity, that the thread shown on...
208. oldal - ... ethereal fluids are in question, of which the properties are positively irreconcilable with the phenomena. According both to Franklin and Dufay, bodies, when similarly electrified, should repel each other : yet in point of fact, collateral wires, when subjected to similar voltaic discharges, and of course similarly electrified, become reciprocally attractive, while such wires, when dissimilarly electrified by currents which are not analogous, become reciprocally repulsive.
237. oldal - ... other teaches me that every grain of sand may harbour within it the tribes and the families of a busy population.
267. oldal - Frictional changes of electricity seek the surfaces of bodies to which they may be imparted, without sensibly affecting the ethereo-ponderable matter of which they consist. When surfaces thus oppositely charged, or, in other words, having about them oppositely polarized ethereal atmospheres, are made to communicate, no current takes place, nor any transfer of the polarized matter : yet any conductor touching both atmospheres, furnishes a channel, through which the opposite polarities are reciprocally...
240. oldal - ... effect, although the conducting power of the reagents, requisite to the constitution of powerful galvanic batteries, is inconsistent with that accumulation of ethereal polarity which constitutes a statical spark-giving charge. 50. As all the members forming a voltaic series have to be discharged in one circuit, the energy of the effort to discharge, and the velocity of the consequent undulations must be ceteris paribus, as the number of members which co-operate to produce the discharge. Of course...
214. oldal - And with regard to any new or original design for any article of manufacture having reference to some purpose of utility, so far as such' design shall be for the shape or configuration of such article...
