    after their inventions (“The Life and Legacy”). Tesla discovered and designed the alternating current system, dynamos (electric generators similar to batteries), the induction motor, and the Wardenclyffe Tower project (“The Life and Legacy”). He was instrumental to the discovery and development of radar technology, x-ray technology, and the rotating magnetic field (“The Life and Legacy”). Tesla’s alternating current system forms the basis of the American electrical grid of today, the basis of the

    What is Current. First off, what is current. Current is expressed in a unit called Amps. Amps are a measurement of how many electrons pass per second. That is to say, a wire with 40 coulombs passing any point in a 2 seconds would be said to have 20 Amps of current (40 Coulombs (a unit of charge given as 6.24x1018 electrons) / time in seconds or in this case, 2 seconds. The Amp is also known as Coulombs per second) Another trick about current is that it is measured in the movement of the positive

    Tesla and Thomas also had more inventions than Tesla, also because Edison did a lot of work with the light bulb. Although they both had a big part in controlling electricity one was for Alternating Current electricity and one for Direct Current. Nikola Tesla was against Direct Current and left with Alternating Current and Edison was for DC and so Nikola and Thomas were up against eatchother to see which one was a much better use. Thomas Edison Thomas Edison’s full name was Thomas Alva Edison; He lived

    Company. While at Graz Technical University, Tesla had seen a demonstration of a generator run as a direct-current (DC) motor. Direct current is electric current that flows in only one direction. During the demonstration, the brushes and the commutator of the motor sparked violently. The brushes are devices that conduct the current in a DC motor. The commutator continually reverses the current so that the motor continues to rotate in one direction. Tesla believed a motor without a commutator could

    Electrical Amplification The creation and advancement of the electric amplifier began in 1906 with the invention of the triode, a form of electric amplification containing three active electrodes of which vacuum tubes are a variety, by De Forest (Leach, 1995). This invention became the primary focus of the amplification industry, resulting in the discovery of stable operating vacuum tubes by Langmuir of General Electric in 1913. Consequently, the Japanese established a vacuum tube laboratory in

    Edison’s Portrayal A dreamer, an inventor, and above all, Thomas Edison was an ambitious and ruthless businessman who manifested the deep determination to take over the electricity market. Edison’s portrayal in Moran’s book “The Executioner’s Current” holds much more realistic and in depth aspects of his personality, than shown in the short excerpt, “They Transformed the World” pertaining to “America’s greatest change-makers.” On top of being an inventor, as shown in the excerpt, Moran’s portrayal

To heal a wound, though, it must be first isolated: and in the case of the world, it is literal flaw that resides with the mask of a wound - combated, though not incapacitated, by the innovators of the Earth. A telephone, refrigerator, microwave, civil rights and gender equality - not only technology, but even a concept

    people do not understand is the fact that if the “Wizard” had his way, there would be a power plant every several miles, scattered about the land like sprinkles on a cupcake. At the time, direct current was the only choice, inhibiting as it was. Then, thanks to a man names Nikola Tesla, an alternating current motor was invented, allowing much more efficient electricity travel. This is just one example of the impact Telsa has had on the modern world. The forgotten father of science, Tesla, is responsible
