Cours Eléméntaire d'Électricité

Nature volume 52, page 243 | Download Citation



THE experimental laws and general principles belonging to the study of technical electricity are set forth in this book in an elementary, but strictly scientific, manner. The book reproduces the author's first-year course of theoretical electricity at the Institut industriel du Nord de la France, and its contents furnish just the kind of foundation needed by students of electrical engineering. In several respects, the treatment differs from that generally followed in text-books; hydrodynamic analogues are entirely omitted, and the word potential is not employed, voltage, or E.M.F. between two points, being used to express potential difference.
