This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...rare. In the writer's estimation the remedy for this deplorable state of affairs is to present electrical theory and data to students in terms of a single system of units which shall include the units of every-day application--the volt, the ampere and the ohm. This digest has been prepared with the object of presenting in a consecutive manner the relations between the units of an ampere, ohm, ampere-turn, weber system of units from which all conversion factors and irrational 4x factors have been eliminated. It is intended that this presentation shall serve as a guide not only for departments of electrical engineering, but also for departments of physics, in presenting the electrical units and definitions to students in electrical engineering. It is not intended that the information contained in the bulletin about the electrostatic, the electromagnetic, the Heaviside, and the hybrid practical systems, shall be presented to beginning students. This information is primarily for the use of engineers who now carry on their calculations in a mixture of these systems. A student should be burdened with this information only after he has learned to think in terms of a simple factor-free system, and then only because he will find it necessary to read articles written under all of the other systems. The economy of mental effort which will result from Ihe use of a complete system of electrical units free from conversion factors and irrational Air factors has long been evident. It is hoped that this digest will be of service--First. By making it evident to writers who must write in rationalized units that it is unnecessary to use Heaviside electrostatic or electromagnetic units, but that the ampere, ohm, ampere-turn, weber units contain all more
