Abstract

I HAVE tried Mr. G. W. Walker's experiment with a small Wimshurst, with 8″ plates, and find that the reversal he mentions generally takes place, but not always. In my case, however, the machine is made so as to excite either way, and the reversal will not take place unless excitation has occurred while the motion is reversed.
