About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1903, and written by English physicist Sir Richard Tetley Glazebrook (1854–1935), this dynamic textbook provides a detailed introduction on the theoretical and practical side of electricity and magnetism. Featuring detailed and useful examples for practical laboratory classwork, this book is primarily designed to be a classroom aid for teachers and students alike, and to reinforce learning and the basic principles of the subject; 'it is with the hope that the book may be of value to those who are endeavouring to put the method in practice'. Diagrams are included for reference. Containing, covering and composed of all the expected topics and the relevant applications, such as 'Electrostatics', 'Laws of Magnetic Force' and 'Measurement of Current', this book is an invaluable source of experiments and will be of considerable value to scholars of physics, as well as to anyone with an interest in the history of education.
