"Magnetization" Quotes from Famous Books

... direction, as the net amount of electrons which crosses, towards the positive side, an element of surface fixed in space at right angles to that direction, per unit area per unit time, here gives no definite result. The establishment and convection of a single polar atom constitutes in fact a quasi-magnetization, in addition to the polarization current as above defined, the negative poles completing the current circuits of the positive ones. But in the transition from molecular theory to the electrodynamics of extended media, all magnetism has to be replaced by a distribution ...

... at faith in his magnetization of her, for as by degrees she made herself more nervously apprehensive by thinking of him, it came to an overclouding and then a panic; and that she took for the physical sign of his presence, and by that time, the hour being late, Alvan happened to have arrived. The touch of his hand, the ...

... 125[sigma], is shorter than most of the reaction times recorded, but since the time measured was always that from the breaking to the making of the circuit passing through the chronoscope it cannot be urged that there were errors resulting from the difference of magnetization which was caused by variations in the reaction time. But it is evident that the danger from differences in magnetization, if such exists, is not avoided in this way; instead, it is transferred from the reaction time proper to the period of preparation immediately ...
