Modern views of electricity by Oliver Lodge( )

39 editions published between 1889 and 2016 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1889, a year after both he and Heinrich Hertz discovered electromagnetic waves and for the first time demonstrated the truth of Maxwell's great theory of the electromagnetic field, physicist Oliver Lodge (1851–1940) published his deepest reflections on the nature and meaning of electricity, how it originates, and its different manifestations. There had been great scientific advances - the work of Faraday and Maxwell, his own experiments and those of Hertz - and a revolution in technology. There were also puzzling questions. What is the connection between electricity and the ether that occupies space? How does electricity manifest itself in matter? Why does it come in fixed units? The discovery of the electron eight years later would offer crucial answers. Always lucid and direct, with a gift for making the difficult seem simple, Lodge engages the reader with his fascination for the subject, much as he did in his famous lectures
Pioneers of science by Oliver Lodge( Book )

51 editions published between 1893 and 2015 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knowing there was no money in science, Vincenzo Galilei wanted his son to become a cloth-dealer. While the young Galileo was disobeying his father and cultivating an unwholesome interest in geometry, Tycho Brahe was maintaining the impoverished Johannes Kepler and his entire family. Not long after this, a certain Cambridge mathematician noticed a strange phenomenon that became known as 'the precession of the equinoxes', before formulating his law of gravity. In this fascinating collection of lectures, first published in 1893, the eminent Professor of Physics Oliver Lodge (1851–1940) takes the reader on a tour of the history of astronomy. Including biographical notes on landmark astronomers, more than a hundred illustrations, and simple explanations of important concepts, this engaging book's range from the geocentric theory of the universe to the discovery of Neptune and the calculation of tides. It remains highly accessible to the general reader today

Electrons; or, The nature and properties of negative electricity by Oliver Lodge( Book )

47 editions published between 1906 and 2012 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "The discovery in 1897 of the electron, the first subatomic particle, led to rapid advances in our knowledge of atomic structure, the solid state, radioactivity and chemistry. It also raised major questions. Was the electron point-like or did it have structure? Was there a positive electron? What did the positive part of the atom look like? Did a hydrogen atom have one electron or a thousand? Published in 1906, this expository account by leading physicist Sir Oliver Lodge (1851-1940) examines the spectacular phenomena of cathode rays in evacuated tubes, the fixed units of charge observed in electrolysis, and the puzzling regularities in atomic spectra. Lodge knew most of the pioneers in the field, and his enthusiastic descriptions of their work and clear analyses of the problems as well as successes paint a vivid picture of the excitement of cutting-edge research and the scientific process in action."

The physicist Sir Oliver Lodge (1851-1940) made significant contributions to the study of electrons, electromagnetic waves, X-rays, radio and telegraphy, earning him the Rumford Medal, the Faraday Medal and, in 1902, a knighthood. In addition to serving as President of the Physical Society, Lodge succeeded F.W.H. Myers as President of the Society for Psychical Research, an organisation devoted to the study of paranormal phenomena. In this work, first published in 1908, Lodge discusses the controversy between science and faith, showing how

Signalling across space without wires : being a description of the work of Hertz & his successors by Oliver Lodge( Book )

54 editions published between 1894 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early 1890s saw the development of wireless telegraphy. Although the behaviour of radio waves had been predicted by James Clerk Maxwell, the production of a working coherer occupied some of the greatest practical physicists of the time. A giant in the field was Heinrich Hertz (1857–94), who was among the first to discover that radio waves could travel independently of wires. When Hertz died, his work was continued and soon led to the development of the first wireless radios. This book, published in 1900, is the third edition of Sir Oliver Lodge's popular explanation of Hertz's work. Including the Royal Institution lecture that Lodge (1851–1940) gave in 1894, along with detailed diagrams, it covers the basic principles of radio waves and some of the theory surrounding telegraphic technology. Also included in this reissue is Lodge's 1924 lecture on electrical precipitation, discussing the scintillating possibility of altering atmospheric conditions through the use of electrical charges

Ether & reality; a series of discourses on the many functions of the ether of space by Oliver Lodge( Book )

39 editions published between 1924 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the widely agreed facts of physics in the late nineteenth century was the existence of luminiferous ether: the medium through which light was thought to travel. Theorised to be a highly rarefied substance, the ether accounted for the movement of light, gravity and even heat across a vacuum. It also had great implications for spiritualism. Where thought was not proven to be a result of chemistry in the brain, the presence of ether allowed for the idea that cognition and emotion might exist independently of a physical body. First published in 1925, this monograph by the eminent physicist and ether advocate Sir Oliver Lodge (1851-1940) was written for the non-scientific reader. With a focus on straightforward explanations rather than mathematical theory, his book still represents a fascinating introduction to the topic today
The ether of space by Oliver Lodge( Book )

23 editions published between 1908 and 2012 in English and German and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Äther (aUt~Q wahrscheinlich von cd'{}w, ich brenne) - ist eme materielle Substanz feinster Art, feiner als alle sichtbaren Stoffe, von der man annimmt, daß sie alle die scheinbar leeren Räume erfüllt." So fängt der Artikel "Äther" an, den J am es CIer k Maxwell für die 9. Auflage der Encyclopaedia Britannica geschrieben hat. Der Ursprung des Wortes scheint auf eine Ideenverbindung mit dem Begriffe "Feuer" hinzuweisen, da die anderen drei "EIe· mente" Erde, Wasser und Luft den festen, flüssigen und gas förmigen Zustand der gewöhnlichen Materie darstellen. Der Name Äther deutet eine viel feinere, durchdringendere, übermaterielle Substanz an. Ne wto n benutzt das Wort als Bezeichnung für ein Medium, welches den ganzen Raum erfüllt, nicht nur den scheinbar leeren, sondern auch den scheinbar besetzten Raum; denn der Lichtäther muß zweifellos auch zwischen den Atomen eines durchsichtigen Körpers vorhanden sein, muß sozusagen seine Poren ausfüllen, denn sonst könnte ja das Licht nicht hindurchdringen. Der folgende Auszug aus Newton s Schriften zeigt, was für Vermutungen er über dieses Medium gehabt hat
