Practical Electrical Measurements

    Article metrics


    THE experiments described in this book should be very serviceable in imparting a real knowledge of the fundamental principles of magnetism and electricity. Only by numerous measurements can a student obtain familiarity with measuring instruments and the principles underlying their construction and use. Such work recorded in a systematic and intelligent manner is the best training a student can have to qualify him for the testing-room of electric light and cable stations. The experiments described are almost entirely quantitative, and they include all the usual magnetic and electrical measurements made in physical laboratories. The book thus not only furnishes a course in electrical testing, but may also be profitably used by advanced students in Organised Science Schools and Technical Schools.
