Homemade Lightning: Creative Experiments in Electricity by R. A. Ford,Richard A. Ford

By R. A. Ford,Richard A. Ford

the most effective books on electrostatics for the hobbyists, inventor, or experimenter is up-to-date and accelerated to incorporate newly exposed details on electrostatic turbines and entire directions for development quite a few forms, together with Wimshurst and Van de Graaff turbines. during the e-book, the writer presents hard-to-find details on electric anomalies, which symbolize the frontier of electrostatic learn.

masking thought and featuring electroscope and different development initiatives and experiments, this guide additionally comprises experiments with electrohorticulture, gravitation and electrical energy, chilly gentle, and electrical tornadoes. do-it-yourself Lightning is either an outstanding first ebook for the construction electric experimenter and an exceptional publication for finished experimenters who have not spent a lot time with electrostatics.
