Page 57 - Ohm's Law. — The fundamental relation between current and electromotive force was enunciated by Dr. GS Ohm in 1827, and is known as Ohm's law. It may be stated as follows: The current strength in any circuit is directly proportional to the sum of all the electromotive forces in the circuit. This relation expressed algebraically is E = KI, or W j = K, a constant.
Page 262 - Interior conduits may be made in a variety of ways, one of which is shown in Fig.
Page 45 - ... with the physical laws of diffusion of gases. If a permeable membrane separates two volumes of any gas, or two solutions of any gas at different pressures, the molecules of the gas will pass through the membrane in both directions until the pressure is equal on both sides. As the excess of movement is from the point of higher pressure to the point of lower pressure, attention is paid only to this side of the process, and we say that the gas diffuses from a point of high tension to one of lower...
